The Dark God of Gnostic Progressive Spirituality

We are at the dawn of a new consciousness, a radically fresh approach to our life…Perhaps the best name for this new segment of historical experience is the Interspiritual Age.” Wayne Teasdale, “The Mystic Heart”

At the outbreak of the modern era, the (gnostic) system of inverse biblical exegesis was once again activated.”  Ioan Couliano, “The Tree of Gnosis”

The Gnostic system of inverse exegesis begins with evolution, which has persuaded people,

 “...to think of everything in nature as the fruit of a gradual growth rather than an original creation.”  Such inverse thinking means it is now impossible for educated Westerners to conceive of Biblical revelation because “in an evolving world, perfection obviously lay, not in the past, but in the future.”  (Franklin Baumer, “The Making of the New Spirituality, James Herrick, p. 150)

Western and American culture has been hijacked by an evolutionary spiritual ideology that Dr. Peter Jones, an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America and Executive Director of truthxchange, calls neo-Gnostic Paganism. In the foreword to the book ‘On Global Wizardry,’ John Frame describes it as an historical and worldwide movement of enormous, cultural power that for centuries has sought to dominate our world. (p. 10)

Darwin’s idea is taken by modern Gnostics as final proof that the universe is governed, not by the divine will of Jehovah Who created humans out of dust, 

“…but by a virtually divine force Darwin called natural selection.  Having produced human consciousness, evolution may now…be brought directly under the control of its own product, Humanity, the accomplishment of natural selection…”  (James Herrick, p. 150)

Grounded in an inverse evolutionary cosmogony Progressive Spirituality is vehemently anti-Revealed Word of God, the Genesis creation account ex nihilo which speaks of a fall by man from a good creation, and Jesus Christ God Incarnate, the Way, the Truth, and the Life who, in the minds of hostile progressive Gnostics, intolerantly declared that “No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)   

 Progressive Spirituality holds that each world religion of nature shares a single universal truth---that the divine energy (i.e., the Force, evolution, prana, chi) or consciousness (i.e., Solar Logos, Mind of the Universe) has manifested itself through many deities in different places and at different times.  Thus no one deity can express the totality of the divine energy or consciousness.  This is polytheism.  

Progressive Spirituality has eleven other essential beliefs:

1. The divine energy or consciousness is present everywhere within nature and man and is therefore the divine essence or spark in the minds of humans.  This means that every person is a potential god because they are aspects of the evolving divine consciousness.  This is idolatry.

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

3. Animism: nature is infused with evolving divine spirit, consciousness, or life force and is thus alive with divine energy or soul, meaning Gaia (earth) is alive.

4. Magic and/or occult science: the principle instrument of initiates, adepts, and god-men employed to acquire hidden knowledge (gnosis).

5. Spiritual evolution: evolutionary progress over time resulting in apotheosis.

6.  Subjectivism: there is no objective truth and reality; whatever one wishes to be true and real is subjectively true and real for that person. (1)

7. History as a record of events in space and time has no particular significance.

8. Religious pluralism rooted in mystical experience.  This means that the only universal religious experience is the mystical experience. 

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

10: Socialism as the new evangelism.

11. Praise for Lucifer as the light-bearer, angel of evolution, and giver of wisdom (gnosis)

Progressive Spirituality is a syncretic stew consisting of elements of Mystery Religion Babylon, occult Kabbalah, Egyptian Hermetic magic, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnostic paganism, Shamanism, Astrology, African pagan spirituality, Chinese spirituality, the spirituality of Quantum Mechanics, Deep Ecology and global change, Hinduism, Buddhism, Luciferian Theosophy, Wicca, evolutionary Christianity and new contemplative (meditation) techniques and other occult ways of contacting the spirit realm. (2)   Uniting all of these movements is a determined commitment to evolution, magic science, subjectivism and tolerance that paves the way for a one world religion. John Frame comments:

"These movements are parallel to one another, even congruent.  So they form a single movement in effect.  They work together, drawing on one another for support and inspiration, affirming one another, while they unite in opposing biblical Christianity. The resulting movement is, then, a work of Satan, seeking to confront Christianity head-on.”  (p. 10)

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

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

Ferguson lists a number of consciousness altering techniques:

".....Meditation, Self-Hypnosis, Focusing, Centering, Guided Imagery, Visualization, Transcendental Meditation, Yoga, Biofeedback, Dianetics, Silva Mind Control..."  (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Dave Hunt, Thomas McMahon, p. 43)

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

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

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

In ’Recognitions’ church father Clement records an evil deed committed by the Gnostic pagan magician Simon (Acts 8: 9-24) that bears a striking resemblance to the effects of modern altered state of consciousness techniques resulting in out-of-body-experiences.   Clement reports that Simon committed murder by inducing a child to experience an out of body situation.  By way of mesmerizing, abominable incantations,

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

In other words, by way of a consciousness altering technique, Simon drew out the spirit of the boy,

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

During trance states demons can interfere with and even possess the passive or empty mind, making occult meditation techniques open doorways into the realm of evil spirits and dangerous demonic deceptions.

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

As it was in the days of Noah

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

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

Church Father Clement concurs.  In the antediluvian world, fallen angels taught men the use of magical incantations that would force demons to obey man:

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

The Tower of Babel was Babylon's founding edifice and spiritual center, said Brooks Alexander, research director for Spiritual Counterfeits Project.  Brooks describes the Tower as an astral temple or gate-way into the dimension of spirits and the Divine Energy.  It therefore represented the structure of the evolving universe of energy and matter:

"As the 'cosmic mountain' it tied heaven and earth together.  It was the all-inclusive image of the totality of the universe." (The Big Lie, SCP Journal 29:2-29:3, 2005, Tal Brooke, p. 11)

The magical meaning of the Tower is the ancient Egyptian Hermetic principle of the universe or macrocosm's correlation with the microcosm, "as above, so below" symbolized by the Ouroboros – the serpent-powered cosmic tree of life represented by a snake biting its tail.  "Below" corresponds to earth, initiate (aspiring god man), and Tower, and 'above' to a number of different astral planes and sub-planes comprising the void--- the locale of gods and demons, 

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

From the time of Nimrod to our own, the serpent-energized Ouroboros with its astral planes and sub-planes has been well-known around the world in its' many esoteric (occult secret) traditions.

Brooks adds that in the ritual act of ascending the astral altar,

"…. the priests acted out the stages of god-realization and the inner meaning of mankind's oneness with the cosmos.  The Babylonian monarch was the focus of the occult power channeled through the activities of the priesthood.  He was regarded as a divine being, a god-man."  (ibid, The Big Lie, p. 10)    

With the help of spirit guides (fallen angels and demons), psycho-technologies and other occult rituals, initiates believed they could spiritually progress or evolve up the astral planes to visit the realm of the gods and become the mouth-pieces for the gods and goddesses.  

According to occult lore, at the final level of initiation spirit entities (demons) fully possess the body of the monarch to replace his spirit. This means that the spirit of the monarch is no longer in residence as another spirit totally possesses and animates the monarch's body.  This is why the monarch thereafter was regarded as a divine being, a god-man.

Upon possession of the monarch's body, the spirit exudes a powerful mesmerizing influence that draws much of the community into its sphere of influence and domination resulting in communal possession.  Possession takes two forms, communal and individual.  Communal or collective possession is,

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

Possession and Other Dangers of Mind-Altering Techniques

According to a 1987 New York Times article, psychologists who studied mind-altering techniques said that while participants are in this altered state group-leaders are able to implant new ideas and alter thinking processes, raising fears of mind control.  (America: Sorcerer's New Apprentice, Hunt, McMahon)

This charge is so grave and frightening that former University of Wisconsin psychology faculty member Edwin Morse warns that graduates of new Spirituality (New Age) courses being required for employees of many businesses are often "psychologically scarred."  Now in private practice and specializing in helping such people, Dr. Morse declares:

"These (mind-altering) groups are using hypnotic procedures and people are not being told about it." (ibid, America: the Sorcerers New Apprentice, p. 42)

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

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

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

So-called 'extraterrestrials' are also at work.   In "Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection," Gary Bates reports that the abduction phenomenon is occurring all over the world, including Third World countries.   After considerable research, Bates connects psycho-techniques utilized by ‘ETs” to hypnosis.  So-called 'aliens' use hypnotic methods to enter into the subconscious mind to plant subliminal messages and alter thought processes to embrace the concept of naturalistic evolution which negates the Genesis account. (Bates, p. 262)

World-renowned UFOlogist and archaeologist Dr. Clifford Wilson is but one of many researchers who have pointed out how an entity calling itself "Ashtar" keeps popping up in UFO accounts.   Along with Semjase (Samlazaz, Semjaza), who has been posing as a modern space-brother, Ashtar keeps appearing in UFO literature as well as ancient texts.  John Keel, one of the world's most published and highly respected UFOlogists also noted this.  Highlighting the element of deception he wrote:

"Thousands of mediums, psychics, and UFO contactees have been receiving mountains of messages from "Ashtar" in recent years.... Ashtar is not a new arrival.    Variations of this name, such as Astaroth, Asher, Asharoth, etc. appear in demonological literature throughout history, both in the Orient and Occident.   Mr. Ashtar had been around a very long time, posing as assorted gods and demons and now, in the modern phase, as another glorious spaceman."  (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 290)

In ancient Babylon, Ashtoreth (Inanna, Ashtar, Ishtar of the Acadians, Istar, Semiramis, Milcom, Cybele, Astarte, Isis, Demeter, Aphrodite; 1 Kings 11:5, 33; 2 Kings 23:13) was the androgynous consort of Anu, the supreme sky god.  

According to Dr. Peter Jones, androgynous (transgender/bi-sexual) priests were associated with the worship of the goddess Istar from the Sumerian age (1800 BC). Their condition was due to their devotion to Istar,

“... who herself had ‘transformed their masculinity into femininity.'”  (Androgyny: The Pagan Sexual Ideal, Dr. Jones, truthxchange)    

Who are Semjaza and Astar/Ishtar?

According to ANE Scholar Dr. Michael Heiser, Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University, Semjaza, the androgynous Ashtar and all other pagan gods are fallen, wicked Watchers, serpentine Seraphim,

"There are "good" serpentine beings (seraphim) who guard God's throne (so Isaiah 6's seraphim), and there are fallen, wicked serpentine beings (seraphim) who rebelled against the Most High at various times, and who became the pagan gods of the other nations."   (Michael Heiser, Serpentine/Reptilian Divine Beings in the Hebrew Bible: A Preliminary Investigation," cited by Bryan Godawa, "Enoch Primordial," p. 363)

Globalized Gnostic Progressive Spirituality

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

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

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

Once again, but this time on a universal scale, humankind is seeking no less than its reunion with the ‘divine,’ it’s transcendence into ever higher forms of life.  Hindus call our earth Brahma, or God, for they rightly see no difference between our earth and the divine.  This ancient simple truth is slowly dawning again upon humanity.  Its full flowering will be the real, great new story of humanity as we are about to enter our cosmic age...” (New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality, Robert Muller, 1923-2010, U.N. Assistant Secretary General known as the philosopher of the U.N. and father of Core Curriculum, 1984, p. 84)

The Dark God of Progressive Spirituality

Progressive spirituality relies heavily on spirit revelations channeled through mediums such as Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Robert Muller, Barbara Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh. Of these it is Blavatsky who reveals the identity of the dark god.   

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

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

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

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

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

  “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” (Theosophical University Press, 1888, p. 243)

In this light it becomes clear why leading Gnostic initiates and adepts speak of the necessity of the Luciferian initiation for all who wish to enter the coming utopian millennium.

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

The clearest answer to the apocalyptic atmosphere of our time is found in the Bible.  We are living in the Last Days.  History is winding down and Satan is mobilizing his forces for a final all-out assault--- which we are already experiencing (1 Tim. 4:1 and 2; Tim. 3:1-4) The demonic realm is brazenly interacting with our own realm, and it is in this light that we can understand the growing epidemic of occultism, imbecility, pathological lying, violence, hatred, death-wishing, and other evils overtaking our society.

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

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

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.

The 20th Century: Beginning of the Aeon of Horus, Reign of God-Men, and End of the Christian God

The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites...We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means, it is an end... The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin to understand me?”   O’Brien, in 1984, by George Orwell

The symbol of the Party or Big Brother is the pagan magician, a demonized man-god who has acquired powerful psychic powers and gnosis through actualization of the cosmic World Soul within his own brain.  Thus he creates his own world and meaning in every living moment out of his own divine consciousness.   In other words, since the substance of God is distributed throughout all of the cosmos including the unconscious mind of man, then by means of self-induced trance states, brain-altering drugs, transcendental meditation and other Magic Ways, man can tap into the god-force within, thereby becoming a little god who controls matter because he controls mind. The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man.

This way of thinking is captured by Orwell in his book, "Nineteen Eighty-Four" in which negation of the physical world is an integral part of the social and political philosophy of Big Brother and his tyrannical Party.  At one stage in the book, Winston stumbles upon the shocking realization that in the end the Party would announce that two and two made five and,

"...you would have to believe it.  It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later; the logic of their position demanded it.  Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy." ("The New Spirituality and its Hallmarks, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 30:4-31:1, 2007, p. 19)

God-men are legion today. They have successfully initiated a devastating assault upon the whole body of the Christian church and by extension, upon Western and American society in ways that to previous generations would have seemed unthinkable.      A few examples of Western and Eastern god-men are Auguste Comte, Nietzsche, Karl Marx, sundry Indian god-men (i.e., Rajneesh. Muktananda, Sri Chinmoy), Teilhard de Chardin,  L. Ron Hubbard and Aleisiter Crowley .  Each god-man either established a natural religion of scientism (Comte), scientific Communism (Marx), scientific and evolutionary "New Christianity" (Teilhard) or powerful cults that have drawn and continue to draw souls to their doom since each demonized god-man is a harvester of souls for the kingdom of the Evil One.  

Aleister Crowley: Founder of Thelema

Thelema is an Eastern influenced occult spiritual philosophy of pantheist monism developed by Crowley,  a 20th century British writer, ceremonial magician and Satanist.  Pantheist monism asserts the divine-human link:

 "All is ultimately One.  This doctrine is fundamental to mysticism, both eastern and western.  God, man, and the universe are fundamentally one.  The Creator-creature distinction, so crucial to orthodox Judaism and Christianity, is specifically denied.  The so-called 'spark of divinity' in each man supposedly leads all men back into oneness with God (the Universal Force)....The body, the mind, the soul are one within the physical forces...In each entity there is that portion which is a part of the Universal Force...God is impersonal; only man is truly personal.  This is (a) central theme of monist systems.  Man is the personal agent of the impersonal God."  (Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism, Gary North, p. 207)  
 
Within the system of pagan and pantheist monism, God is an evolutionary Force or Energy to be managed, a power to be tapped by initiates and enlightened god-men.  This impersonal Force that supposedly drives the universe's evolutionary destiny was referred to centuries ago in the European magical tradition as the divine Mens, or Mind.  It was cosmic in scope and through careful study and practice (occult or magic science) the magician could control and channel its' power.   The ultimate goal was to acquire powerful psychic powers and gnosis through recreation or actualization of the cosmic Mens within the human mind. (1)
 
In the main, Thelema is based upon a spiritual encounter that Crowley and his wife had in Egypt in 1904 with a spirit calling itself Aiwass.  According to Crowley, Aiwass contacted him and dictated a text known as The Book of the Law or Liber AL vel Legis, which outlined the principles of Thelema.
 
The Thelemic pantheon focuses primarily on a trinity of horned deities adapted from ancient Egyptian pantheist monism who are the three speakers of The Book of the Law: Nuit, Hadit and Ra-Hoor-Khuit. The three speakers predicted that the 20th century would mark the ending of the Christian God and Christian theism and the beginning of the Aeon of Horus, an age of apostasy into pantheist monism, creative destruction, force and fire wrought by demonized god-men and their masses of disciples--- a self-absorbed, destructive generation, the followers of a new ethical code, an anti-morality summed up as, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law."  
 
In "Our Savage God: The Perverse Use of Eastern Thought," R.C. Zaehner, Spalding professor of comparative religion of Oxford, discusses the monistic (collectivist/oneness) goals of Hinduism and Buddhism and how the Satanist Aleister Crowley applied monistic philosophy to his own ends.  Crowley, said Zaehner, belonged to an age-old monistic tradition which saw the Eternal (Supreme Soul, Void, Abyss, Quantum Vacuum) as the ultimate unity in which all opposites were reconciled, including God with man, man with woman, woman with man, good with evil. (2)
 
Zaehner also discusses Crowley's attainment of Buddhist "enlightenment," the results of which were "revised" by his spirit guide "Aiwass."   Having assisted Crowley to go beyond good and evil, Aiwass now taught him indulgence.   Aiwass, Crowley's "Holy Guardian Angel," taught "him that absolute bliss could only be attained by enjoying the good things of this world to the full---riches, power, and above all sex, the earthly counterpart of the transcendent union of the opposite." (ibid)
 
As a result, Crowley partook of tantric kundalini sex-magic rites ostensibly for "spiritual" ends.  His "Ordo Templi Orientalis" (Order of the Oriental Temple or O.T.O.) became a branch of Western Tantra.  Indeed, Crowley seems to have been the principal agent responsible for introducing the perversion of Eastern sex magic to the West.  In a text entitled "Yoga: Immortality and Freedom," the yoga authority and University of Chicago professor Mircea Eliade discusses the amoral orientation of Tantra:
 
"The tantric texts frequently repeat the saying, "By the same acts that cause some men to burn in hell....the yogin gains his eternal salvation."....This...is the foundation stone of the Yoga expounded by Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita (XVIII, 17).  "He who has no feeling of egoism, and whose mind is not tainted, even though he kills (all) these people, kills not, is not fettered (by the action)."  "And the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad (V,14, 8) had already said: "One who knows this, although he commits very much evil, consumes it all and becomes clean and pure, ageless and immortal."  (ibid, p. 112) 
 
 In addition to his spirit-guide Aiwass, another important mentor of Crowley's was Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher who declared the death of the Christian God and called himself the Anti-Christ:
 
"The greatest recent event – that 'God is dead,' that the belief in the Christian God has ceased to be believable – is even now beginning to cast its first shadows over Europe; however, few really understood " what has really happened here, "and what must collapse now that this belief has been undermined – all that was built upon it, leaned on it, grew into it; for example, our whole European morality." (False Dawn, Lee Penn, p. 433) 
 
Nietzsche argued for the nonexistence of the Christian God as follows:
 
"I will now disprove the existence of all gods. If there were gods, how could I bear not to be a god? Consequently, there are no gods." (3)
 
Each major book of Nietzsche's is, in a different way, an attack on the Christian God and Christian faith. The central axis of Nietzsche's philosophy is always the same---he is as centered on Jesus Christ as Augustine was, only he centered on Christ as his enemy. 
 
With "Ecce Homo" Nietzsche willingly embraces lies and dark fantasy while in "The Genealogy of Morals" he claims that Biblical morality was invented by the "weak," meaning the Jews and then the Christians, to weaken the strong. Thus sheep convinced wolves to act like sheep, and this is unnatural, argued the Anti-Christ who embraced lies and dark fantasy such as "‘Whoever must be a creator always annihilates’ (4)
 
Creation and destruction are as inseparable to Aiwass as to Nietzsche's spirit guide Zarathustra: the creator must always destroy. Thus it follows that a new world order is always preceded by the destruction of the old, hated order:

"The man who breaks… tables of values, the breaker, the lawbreaker; …he is the creator."(Nietzsche)
 
One of the central ideas taught by Zarathustra is that since ‘self’ is self-evolved then Zarathustra's disciple must take responsibility for who he is, for creating himself and his own laws. The implication of this idea is that the old ‘self’ must be destroyed in order to make way for the new ‘self’:

You must wish to consume yourself in your own flame: how could you wish to become new unless you had first become ashes!’ (Nietzsche)
 
The aftermath of the destruction of "self" is insanity (demonization) followed by possession. This is experienced by power yogis when kundalini current finally reaches full voltage with the result that the so-called Soul of the Universe supposedly occupies the body but is in fact an ancient evil spirit residing in the body of the 'god-man:'

"The moment of power transfer had come....Muktananda (adept of Nityananda) was about to make the timeless journey....of the power yogi (the Siddha), but it required the catalytic power of the master guru, Nityananda...who was God to Muktananda, therefore worthy of worship as the supreme Deity.  The voyage of consciousness, prized by the ancients, would split Muktananda into fragments...Sometimes (his) body would writhe and twist like a snake's while a hissing sound would come from inside (him)."   Finally it happened---Explosion, the point of no return where Muktananda "as an individual would be obliterated.  Superconscious states would take control of him, and his consciousness would be kicked out to more and more remote levels."   "In place of the former person was the walking void, the Unself, the hollow shell filled with the soul of the universe..."   (Riders of the Cosmic Circuit, Tal Brooke, pp. 36-45) 
 
In "Beyond Good and Evil" the Anti-Christ presents his "Master morality," the anti-morality summarized by Crowley as "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law." What this means is that since demonized God-hating liars have conceptually "murdered" the Holy Triune God and sealed up heaven, Masters have a natural right to do whatever they please, for everything is permissible. Whatever a Master commands becomes good from the mere fact that the Master wills it:

"Paedophilic interest is natural and normal for human males,” “At least a sizeable minority of normal males would like to have sex with children … Normal males are aroused by children.”   ('Paedophilia is natural and normal for males,' Andrew Gilligan, telegraph.co.uk, Jul 2014)
 
"The Twilight of the Idols" explores the consequences of the murder of the Christian God. With His death is liberation from the supernatural Mind, Authority and Will that has transcended the mind and will of man who is now god and decrees the death of eternally existing Truth, Moral Absolutes, sin and agape love. With the murder of the Triune God, there will no longer be a heaven for the sheep since all of these "idols" will die now that loveless men have murdered the Holy God the Father Almighty.
 
Who will replace the murdered Triune God? The demonized Superman, the new Master of the Universe. Nietzsche's masterpiece, "Thus Spake Zarathustra," celebrates this new god. Nietzsche called Zarathustra the new anti-Gospel and told the world to "throw away all other books; you have my Zarathustra."
 
Among contemporary intelligentsia and global 'god-men' (trans-humanists and practitioners of the Magic Way) intent upon ushering in a worldwide Scientific Dictatorship, a sustainable green pagan heaven on earth created by Masters for Masters, two of the most widely-read and acclaimed thinkers today are the sadistic murderer, the Marquis de Sade, and Friedrich Nietzsche, the Anti-Christ. Many twentieth century totalitarians were disciples of Nietzsche, including America's green Progressive Left and Hitler.
 
In "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," William Shirer recounts Hitler's frequent sojourns to the Nietzsche museum in Weimar. Commenting on Hitler's veneration for Nietzsche, Shirer writes:
 
"There was some ground for this appropriation of Nietzsche as one of the originators of the Nazi Weltanschauung. Had not the philosopher thundered against democracy and parliaments, preached the will to power, praised war and proclaimed the coming of the master race and the superman--and in the most telling aphorisms? (Shirer, The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, 1959)
 
Though Nietzsche harshly criticized socialism, his evolutionary thinking and monist (collectivist) political and social thoughts also harmonized well with Marxism.
 
In "Nietzsche: A Precursor to Hitler?" researcher Phillip D. Collins writes that in addition to the continuity of pagan political and social thought that pervaded totalitarian socialism, Nietzsche also provided a religious component. The infamous declaration, "God is dead," is but a segue for the introduction of a new Babylonian god merged with mystical Eastern pantheism. This god of evolutionary forces has had, and continues to have, numerous manifestations, as is evidenced by the following delineation by W. Warren Wagar:
 
"Nineteenth-and early twentieth-century thought teems with time-bound emergent deities. Scores of thinkers preached some sort of faith in what is potential in time, in place of the traditional Christian and mystical faith in a power outside of time. Hegel's Weltgeist, Comte's Humanite, Spencer's organismic humanity inevitably improving itself by the laws of evolution, Nietzsche's doctrine of superhumanity, the conception of a finite God given currency by J.S. Mill, Hastings Rashdall, and William James, the vitalism of Bergson and Shaw, the emergent evolutionism of Samuel Alexander and Lloyd Morgan, the theories of divine immanence in the liberal movement in Protestant theology, and du Nouy's telefinalism--all are exhibits in evidence of the influence chiefly of evolutionary thinking, both before and after Darwin, in Western intellectual history. The faith of progress itself--especially the idea of progress as built into the evolutionary scheme of things--is in every way the psychological equivalent of religion. (Wagar, 106 -07)"
 
Nietzsche's self-evolved Superman was but one more link in an ideational chain connecting  Luciferian revolutionaries such as Hegel, Comte, Marx, Stalin, Hitler, Crowley, and contemporary New World Order Masters of the Universe. The central theme is a green religious faith in humanity's evolutionary ascent towards godhood. Collins writes that this is by no means new:
 
"This doctrine of transformism dates back nearly 6,000 years, finding its crucible in Mesopotamia. It was the religious doctrine promulgated by the ancient Babylonian and Egyptian Mystery cults."

Masonic scholar W.L. Wilmshurst verifies this contention:
 
"This--the evolution of man into superman--was always the purpose of the ancient Mysteries" (Wilmshurst, W.L. The Meaning of Masonry. New York: Gramercy, 1980)
 
Nietzsche's Superman represents the pinnacle of biological and spiritual evolution. At the apex of the anti-creation, anti-human evolutionary process, Superman would "overcome" his own fleshly humanity---his mortality, his conscience, human weaknesses and limitations. Just as this post-human condition represented godhood for ancient Mystery Religion initiates, so it represents godhood for Nietzsche, Hitler, Crowley, inner circle Masons, contemporary Transhumanists, Spiritual Transhumanists, occult New Agers and their apostate New Christian counterparts who are even now rewriting the Bible so it will reflect evolutionary and pagan thinking.
 
Inherent in this ancient anti-creation, anti-human belief are Nietzsche's Western pagan, Eastern pantheist, and neo-Gnostic teachings that the fall of soul into the material realm was either inexplicable or explained as punishment. At any rate it was a plunge from being as one with or an aspect of the Divine Substance into the material realm of distinctions, or binary. The Fall then is not into sin as a result of disobedience but rather into matter. Salvation means either reabsorption into the Divine Substance or attainment of godhood by way of an evolutionary process controlled by illumined adepts.
 
Nietzsche's version of gnosis resulting from his mystical encounter with Zarathustra, as with Crowley, is the demonic "transvaluation of values" and the enthronement of divinized-self as the final anti-Christ, anti-moral, anti-tradition, authority while earth becomes the divine kingdom of the totalitarian demonized Masters of the Universe.
 
In a larger context, this means that the absolute freedom (license) increasingly exercised by contemporary Western and American god-men and their masses of followers in the name of scientism, evolution, moral relativism, absolute equality, open-minded tolerance and man-made rights (i.e., "gay" marriage, pedophilia) is actually the destructive license which perverts the true meaning and purpose of morally-principled freedom. Absolute freedom enslaves god-men and their followers to their dark side, or sin nature, thus leading them into the anarchy of concupiscence and self-gratification issuing in hate, paranoia, violence, and murder.
 
The 19th century apocalyptic prophet Fyodor Dostoevsky foresaw the devastating consequences of absolute freedom that would usher in planetary spiritual socialism during the age of demonized god-men.
 
Out of the surfeit of arrogant conceit, self-indulgence, violence, hate, envy and murder exacerbated by blasphemy and unbelief said Dostoevsky, will emerge a new man, a miserable man anxious to be saved from himself and the madness of others, hence ready to surrender his absolute freedom for safety, earthly bread, peace, a soothed conscience and a modicum of comfort derived from sin sanctified by his Masters. (Political Apocalypse, Ellis Sandoz, p. 179)
 
Demonized god-men and their followers will progress from the tyranny of sin and evil spirits to the tyranny of the Anti-Christ, the psychopath par excellence, for out of the shattered,
 
"... spiritual and social order emerges the new ethic of absolute submission to absolute power." (ibid)
 
And so begins the final chapter of man during the terrible reign of demonized god-men.

The Lawless One: Psychopath Par Excellence

Roy Hazelwood was one of the original profilers when the Behavioral Science Unit was first developed at Quantico. He served with the FBI for twenty-two years, taught courses at the Academy, the University of Virginia, the University of Pennsylvania, the U. S. Military Police CID, the Southern Police Institute and is also a board certified forensic examiner and a commentator for The Forensic Echo.  Hazelwood is now Affiliate Professor of Administrative Justice at George Mason University and has appeared as an expert on criminal investigations on numerous radio and television shows.

In his book, "Dark Dreams" Hazelwood discusses an infinite number of deviant sexual behaviors, different combinations of sexual behaviors and dark fantasies that can be merged into a single crime. In the chapter titled, "The Infinity of Darkness" he examines the role that fantasy plays in sexual crimes and how offenders act out those fantasies using wives, girlfriends, and other human prey as well as inanimate objects. Other chapters deal with bringing the fantasy to reality in various criminal activities such as sexual sadism, serial murder, serial rape and, of course, profiling of possible prey.

One of his favorite chapters is titled "Am I God?"  It deals with the role of narcissism in sexual crimes and with one particular criminal who wrote a lengthy manuscript in which he described four murders in detail, and because of his power over life and death, questioned whether or not he was God. (Roy Hazelwood: Profiler of Sexual Crimes trutv.com)

Hazelwood observes that most successful sexual sadists are narcissists who believe they are superior to society in general and law enforcement in particular. They come to believe they can't get caught, so they engage in greater and greater risk taking. This serves two purposes: to prove they are superior and to maintain the "high" they get from committing crimes.

As a Christian, Hazelwoods' profound insight into the mind of sexual sadists is grounded in St. Augustine's view of man as the three-part spiritual image-bearer of the Holy Triune God as well as his teaching on sin, which Augustine says is not caused by the flesh (bodily/soulish senses) but by the spirit (intellect, will). Thus all sin is of a spiritual nature said Augustine.

Hazelwood studied St. Augustine's writings where he spoke of the five steps that men and women take to act in a sinful way. Sin originates in the intellect (spirit), and then moves to the senses for approval. The consequences are considered, the will makes a decision to act, and the mind rationalizes the behavior. Hazelwood realized that if he replaced the word 'sin' with the word 'crime' he could apply it to his work and lectures:

"The sexual criminal fantasizes about a criminal act, and if the idea is pleasing to his senses, touch, sight, etc. he considers the consequences of what might happen and then decides to act. Finally, he rationalizes his behavior for having committed the crime...I wouldn't have done it if..."

Hazelwood adds that:

"....sexual fantasy is nothing more than the mental imagery of a desired event. You conjure up in your mind something you want to do. Fortunately for society, most of us do not act on those fantasies. Yet some do, with horrendous results."

Sexual sadism is a spiritual problem, therefore Hazelwood discounts current criminal reform treatment programs.  These programs are grounded in the erroneous Darwinian idea that man is an evolved ape together with Freuds' fatalistic explanation that anger, perversion, rage, jealousy, hatred, envy, and other destructive impulses are caused by chemical changes in the brain, genetic neurological predispositions and social factors in upbringing.    

The truth about sexual sadism is that it is freely chosen "immediate gratification" said Hazelwood, adding that he once asked a serial rapist,

"If the death penalty was the punishment for your crime, would you still have committed the offense?' He told me that he would have."

Sexual sadism, said Hazelwood, is a rationalized willful choice that,

 "...goes back to the idea that there are no absolutes, the infinity of darkness." 

Sexual sadism belongs to the category known today as psychopathy. Psychopaths are sometimes described as conscienceless, meaning their conscience is so filthy and polluted it is in effect dead. As conscience is a component of spirit,  talk-therapy, medications and other reform methods are unable to cleanse and reawaken conscience.

Psychopaths are manipulative, meaning that because they hold other people in contempt, they freely use them for purposes of self-gratification. Other common characteristics include: narcissism, moral relativism (no absolutes), sense of entitlement, parasitism, bullying, casual cruelty, pleasure at inflicting pain, insensitivity, dishonesty, pathological lying, aggression, impulsiveness, and irresponsibility .

The Scientific American reports with alarm that psychpaths are,

"....overrepresented in prisons (and) research also suggests that a sizable number of psychopaths may be walking among us in everyday life. Some investigators have even speculated that "successful psychopath” (meaning) those who attain prominent positions in society may be overrepresented in certain occupations, such as politics, business and entertainment." (What "Psychopath" Means)

And let us not overlook the authors of the article, 'After-birth abortion: Why should the baby live?" Dr. Alberto Giubilini and Dr Francesca Minerva, who with a total lack of conscience, empathy, and remorse, cold-bloodedly advised that:

"Parents should be allowed to have newborn babies killed as it is no different from abortion (because they) are not 'actual persons' and do not have a 'moral right to life..." ("Killing of newborn babies is acceptable, say doctors," independent.ie)

 If instead of "psychopath" the phrase "lawless natural man" is used, then we have a description of the evil-state of spiritually dead men in the last days:
 
"For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy." 2 Tim. 3:2, KJB

Lawless natural men have,

"... have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumbling block of their iniquity before their face…. (Ezekiel 14:3)  
 
Lawless natural man will be irresistibly drawn to and captivated by the Lawless One, Satan's earthly representative.  The Lawless One is the psychopath par excellence described by Paul as the 'man of iniquity, son of perdition.' He is the son of the Evil One because he has espoused the spirit of the devil. The great philosophical and theological scholar Vladimir Soloviev describes him as,
 
"...a remarkable man---many called him superhuman...He believed in God (as did Marx, Nietzsche and Teilhard de Chardin), but at the bottom of his heart (he) preferred himself to Him. (Yahwah) knew that he would bow down before the powers of evil, as soon as it had corrupted him...by caressing his boundless pride." At the beginning, the Antichrist "had no hostility toward Jesus...but (like Mahomet) he saw in Him merely the greatest of his own predecessors." Since I have superceded Him, "I am the perfect and final savior. The first Christ was my forerunner...(therefore, why should I) have to bow before Him like the most stupid of Christians...I, the bright genius, the superman! No, never!"  (Wrath of God, Livio Fanzaga, pp. 36-37, 40, emphasis added)
 
His unbounded pride, defiance, arrogant conceit, contempt and moral relativism are characteristic of his perversity and the reason for his unbelief in the Holy Triune God. He in fact believes that he is God incarnate among men. He is a man of modern evolutionary scientism--- the powerful instruments of his will by which he worships himself, makes himself equal to God and holds the power of life and death in his hands.  He is a powerful seducer, so powerful in fact that even believers will be deceived if possible.
 
The Lawless One suffers the same envy of God that transformed Lucifer into a demon, the Evil One, the father of all psychopaths. The sin of Lucifer (and of Hegel, Karl Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler) was that he could not abide the idea of God's existence since he wished to become God. The Lawless One's sin ( Nietzsches) consists in being unable to tolerate the idea that Jesus Christ, a greater man than himself exists.

Spiritual sin, beginning with pride, jealousy and covetousness quickly inflating to envy, are the common bonds linking Satan, with increasing numbers of his earthly representatives, from the Lawless One to all who have been infected with the same venom of the serpent.

Dan. 7: 25--The Grand Inquisitor: Spirit of Antichrist, Murderer of God, & Time-Changer

Throughout our scientifically enlightened society the idea of Satan and Satanism are uncomfortable subjects for most people, including many Christians. It wasn't always this way.  Fyodor Dostoevsky for example, held that Communist revolutionaries such as Karl Marx were possessed but would only become aware of it until too late.  
 
While Satanism is the knowing worship of Satan and is historically rare there is also historically widespread unconscious Satanism (1 Cor. 10:20) underlying the worship of creative energy symbolized by the serpent and grounded in ancient Mesopotamian literature with its one-dimensional pagan model of reality (natural or cosmic dimension only).

From the time of Babylon mankind has been worshipping creative serpent power featured within Perennial Philosophies from all around the world. The legendary history of Greece, Rome, Phonecia, Egypt, and India, for instance, are filled with stories of man’s serpentine ancestry:

“When Aenas was about to worship at the tomb of Anchises, his father…a serpent appeared and glided among the altars, tasted the food Aeneas had placed there and then departed….Aeneas did not know whether it was the genius loci or his father’s (serpent) spirit.”  (The Worship of Creative Energy as Symbolized by the Serpent, Charles Edward Herring) 

  Within the scientifically enlightened West and America serpent energy has been repackaged as evolutionary science for modern consumption. Thus examples of unconscious Satanism are evolutionary ideologies such as Marxism, Secular Humanism, Progressivism, western Satanism, New Age Spirituality, and inner circle Mason initiates, According to New Age insider David Spangler Lucifer is the angel of Nature's primary creative energy, evolution:

“The true light of this great being can only be recognized when one's own eyes can see with the light of the Christ, the light of the inner sun. Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into the New Age, which is the age of man's wholeness, each of us is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Initiation, the particular doorway through which the individual must pass if he is to come fully into the presence of his light and his wholeness.”

"Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it, then he is free and we are free, that is the Luciferic Initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.” (David Spangler, Reflections on the Christ, Findhorn Lecture Series, 3rd ed., 1981; p. 45)  

The modern animist and occult traditions of the spiritually pagan and mystical pantheist American and global 'elite' classes for example, are revamped versions of ancient Mystery Wisdom Teachings grounded in creative energy symbolized by the serpent. Writing in affirmation, Corinne McLaughlin and Gordon Davidson, the politically influential co-authors of " of "Spiritual Politics: Changing the World from the Inside Out," reveal that concealed behind today's spiritual revolutionary politics such as Cultural Marxism and Communism (totalitarian pagan state), are Ageless Wisdom teachings preserved by occultists since the Egyptian pantheon (27th-30th centuries B.C). These ancient teachings, said the authors, have been handed down over the ages to modern occultists in the time of the Renaissance and the Enlightenment and on into our own time:

"For centuries, the Ageless Wisdom in the West was shielded from an unprepared public.... The unveiled truths were handed down only orally by individual teachers to tested disciples or by certain religious groups and secret societies, such as the Cabbalists, Druids, Essenes, Sufis, Knights Templar, Rosicrucian's, Freemasons, and others who carefully guarded the teachings down through the centuries. A study of these secret societies would reveal powerful influences on the history of nations...." (Spiritual Politics, McLaughlin, Davidson from "Reinventing Jesus Christ: The New Gospel," Warren Smith, crossroad)

In the classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages" English theologian G.H. Pember (1837-1910) examines the explosion of Ageless Wisdom---spiritism (open intercourse with evil spirits), ancient Egyptian Hermetic magic, Theosophy, Buddhism, reincarnation, karma, the Mysteries, astrology, mesmeric healings and evolutionary thinking sweeping across Christendom

It was during the Renaissance that many influential Christians at the highest levels of Church and society had returned to the occult Ageless Wisdom Teachings and serpent power.  Pember observes that ancient occult traditions are no longer veiled in mystery but boldly presented by the emerging occult brotherhood as the fruit of modern science, especially evolutionary philosophy, which the brotherhood assert was included in the instructions given,

"...to the initiates of the Hermetic, Orphic, Eleusinian, and Cabbalistic mysteries, and were familiar to Chaldean Magi, Egyptian Priests, Hindu Occultists, Essenes, Therapeutae Gnostics, and Theurgic Neo-Platonists." (Pember, pp.243-244)

In addition to creative energy symbolized by the serpent, another serpent symbol stands out: the serpent biting its tail, an occult symbol signifying the one-dimensional reality of monism. All Ageless Wisdom traditions feature monism, said Dr. Gary North.  Monism erases the Creator-creature distinction and is common to all occult systems,

"...from the magical sects of the East to the gnostics of the early church period, and from there unto today's preachers of cosmic evolution and irresistible karma." (Monism teaches) "...we are all gods in the making.  Out of One has proceeded the many, and back into One are the many traveling.  Eastern mystics, philosophical Hegelians, and followers of Teilhard de Chardin are all agreed on the reality of ultimate monism."  (Unholy Spirits: Occultism and New Age Humanism, Gary North, p. 60)

The Grand Inquisitor: Unconscious Satanist

 In Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel, "The Brothers Karamazov," (1879-1880) the Grand Inquisitor is an unconscious Satanist.  He is an important part of the novel because the character represents Dostoevsky's penetrating insight into the fallen human psyche and one of its' most important endowments: moral freedom.   In particular, the Grand Inquisitor is the spirit of Antichrist. Like his father the devil he is the accuser and murderer of God revealed through Jesus Christ and the symbol of the principle of nihilism (negation) and rebellion in mortal men such Hegel, Max Stirner, Karl Marx, and Nietzsche, who though not the actual devil, are of one mind with him, thus do his work.   They are unconscious Satanists.

The Grand Inquisitor is a god-man who has usurped the throne of the Holy Triune God. He is a conscious swindler, a Big Liar who knows that the Lord revealed through Jesus Christ exists, yet perversely chooses to rebel against and conceptually murder Him despite that he knows his own life is by the grace of the personal God of life and revelation. 
 
In "Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor," Ellis Sandoz writes that when Marx found himself compelled to negate his own being (inner person, soul/spirit, self) because of his perverse desire to show that "man owes his existence (only) to man," and to establish that the "entire so-called history of the world is nothing but the creation of man," he virtually recapitulated Aquinas' argument for the existence of the Triune God:
 
"A being only considers himself independent when he stands on his own feet; and he only stands on his own feet when he owes his existence to himself.  A man who lives by the grace of another regards himself as a dependent being (and) I live completely by the grace of another if I owe him not only the maintenance of my life, but if he has, moreover, created my life---if he is the source of my life.  When it is not of my own creation, my life has necessarily a source of this kind outside of it.  The creation is therefore an idea very difficult to dislodge from popular consciousness.  The fact that nature and man exist in their own account is incomprehensible to it, because it contradicts everything tangible in practical life."(pp. 113-114)
 
Being of one mind with the devil, the Grand Inquisitor (Marx) suggests that in order to affirm that man is god, the denial of the existence of the one true God has in the past been necessary (i.e., Nimrod), thus to further his swindle, he asserts antitheism rather than atheism, which is merely a negation of God that nevertheless postulates the existence of man through this negation.  The complete negation of God requires that man and nature (matter, energy, time, space) be of the same substance.  As nature is soulless, then so is man.
 
For the conscious swindler, the prudent course is to flatly deny the existence of the Holy Triune God and enforce this dictate by way of psychological terror and if need be, by murder.  Psychologically manipulate and terrorize believers into confusion, apathy and groveling submission, and even better, accommodation of the Christian Church to the world system by way of harsh scorn, cruel ridicule, scoffing, slander and charges of insanity. 

After seizing control of Russia, Marx's disciples enforced the denial of God mainly by way of terror and murder.  According to Yuri Martov, the head of the Mensheviks, from the first day of their coming to power the Bolsheviks began to kill.  Wholesale murders were organized at the instigation of the Bolsheviks.  Tens of thousands were murdered without even a trial.  Martov had a premonition:

"The beast has licked hot human blood.  The man-killing machine is brought into motion...The reign of terror established by the Bolsheviks since October 1917 has filled the air of Russian fields with vapors of human blood."  (The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression, p. 736)

Researchers put the total number of deaths at around sixty million men, women, and children, with approximately half being Christians. According to Stephanie Courtois in the conclusion of The Black Book of Communism, the Darwinian biological strain of thinking enables us to understand,

"....why so many of the crimes of Communism were crimes against humanity, and how Marxist-Leninist ideology managed to justify these crimes..." (ibid, p. 751)
 
Returning to the Inquisitor, he also knows that if men are deprived of the living God they will worship something else.  Thus as Marx, the Inquisitor proffers the natural (pagan) religion of scientific socialism and dialectical materialism (evolutionary theory).  But when Darwin published his own theory, the Inquisitor immediately perceived its' philosophical materialist implications.  The idea that humans evolved by chance and natural selection from a process of evolutionary dynamics working on primordial water or lifeless chemicals lay the axe at the very foundation of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo and provided the scientific framework to support the economic infrastructure on which Marx could build his godless communist utopia:
 
"...the biggest thing going for Darwinism was that it finally broke the tyranny in which Christianity had held the minds of men for so many centuries." (F. Hoyle and C. Wickramasinghe, "Evolution From Space," 1983, pp. xiii-xxii, 81 and 145)
 
Marxist Communism & National Socialism: Types of Nimrod's Tower
 
In his book "Utopia: The Perennial Heresy," Catholic philosopher and historian Thomas Molnar (1910-2010) notes that the two recurring themes of modern ideologies are monism (all that exists is the substance of nature) and evolutionary conceptions. At the root of these two themes there is:

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

In order for god-men to raise up a new Tower (create a God-less world and a new man):

"the order of being must be obliterated (and reinterpreted) as essentially under man's control." Taking control "requires the decapitation of being — the murder of God." (Eric Voegelin, "Science, Politics and Gnosticism," p. xv)
 
In other words, the Grand Inquisitor is a modern Nimrod, making him an ominous sign pointing to the return of rebellion against God, monism, and the Mysteries.  He is the Master of the Universe, who being of one mind with Satan, has conceptually murdered God as revealed through Jesus Christ in order to take control of and reinterpret being, matter, energy, space, law, and time, making him an Antichrist:

"And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.”   Daniel 7:25

Rise of the Global Church of Lucifer

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

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

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

The New Age movement received its start in 1875 with the founding of the Theosophical Society by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.  In his book, “Earth’s Earliest Ages” (1876), the English theologian G.H. Pember writes that Blavatsky was chosen by the Brotherhood (fallen angels) to carry out a mission.  They initiated and instructed her for seven years and then dismissed her to the outer world.  As instructed, she traveled to America and organized the Theosophical Society in New York with two specific stated goals.   First: the formation of the nucleus of a Universal Brotherhood.   Second: the destruction of the Revealed Word of God by way of a transformation to unity-with-the-world-system process.  This devilish process would be carried out by “spiritually illumined” change-agent theologians, priests (2 John 1:7) and intellectuals who would transform it completely:

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

Bailey explains that specially selected theologians and priests will be overshadowed and then possessed by Masters in a process of initiation:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NAR's Super Apostles (2 Cor. 11:13) channel this unholy ‘spirit’ who they claim is the Spirit of ‘God.’   They claim that ‘God’ has given them the authority to build a kingdom of “God” on earth---a unified and/or pluralistic Global Church:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Strange Fire

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

Herrmann writes that the idea that man is god is grounded in evolutionary change process,

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

 According to the brilliant Russian philosopher, theologian, and visionary, Vladimir Soloviev (1850-1900) it will be by way of an evolutionary “change” process (initiation) that the chosen one will be transformed into the Antichrist. 

Soloviev foresaw the stunning events we are witnessing today:  the wholesale rejection of the God of Revelation and the fall of the Christian Church into idolatry, apostasy and paganism influenced and directed by a demonic outpouring effecting a transformation of consciousness issuing into a unified religion of Lucifer and the appearance of the Antichrist.

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

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

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

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

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

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

 The Christian Church: Undergoing an Evolutionary Change Process

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

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

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

 The Global Occult Elite

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

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

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

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

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

When a critical mass of humanity have succumbed to satanic subjection, infestation and possession, the New Age will commence when the Brotherhood of Masters bring to an end,

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

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

Why Children Murder their Playmates and Parents

An Ohio mom, who was stabbed by her 13-year-old daughter in the kitchen of their home, has told how her child assaulted her after the girl became obsessed with the fictional character.

I came home one night from work and she was in the kitchen waiting for me and she was wearing a mask, a white mask,' the mom told local news station WLWT." "The mother suffered multiple minor injuries, including a puncture wound on her back. 'She was someone else during the attack,' she said." (Mother attacked by daughter says Slender Man could be to blame, FoxNews.com, June 09, 2014)

 The allegations came to light after two Wisconsin adolescents were charged with the attempted murder of a 12-year-old as a sacrifice to the online demon. Prosecutors allege that Anissa Weier and her friend Morgan Geyster, both 12, stabbed a friend 19 times and left her to die:

"Police say the girls told detectives they wanted to murder the girl after reading tales about Slender Man on the horror website CreepyPasta."

Ideas have Consequences

In our Godless yet "scientifically enlightened" society we are surrounded by two major ideas from early childhood through the end of our lives.  First, we are not persons (spirit/soul) of worth, meaning and value because created in the spiritual image of our Father, the One God in three Persons but rather nothing more than products of evolution.   Second, as we are 'nothing' then our own life and that of everyone else has no worth, meaning, and value.

Darwinism in particular and evolutionary thinking in general has destroyed the foundations of supernatural Christianity and man's personhood (soul/spirit):

"Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma." (Anton Pannekoek, "Marxism and Darwinism," translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the Internet by Jon Muller, Chicago, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Company)

For many long years, thoughtful, concerned people have been pointing to the connections between evolutionary thinking and the spreading epidemic of narcissism, moral insanity, hatred, violence, despair, apathy, paranoia, psychosis and other spiritual pathologies together with the breakup of the family, the abortion of 60,000,000+ unborn, the subversion and perversion of children, and the relentlessly rising tide of psychiatric drug and porn use, crime, decadence, homicide and suicide in the 'evolutionized' West.

If Darwin in particular and evolutionary thinking in general is right, then man is 'nothing' and since there is no ultimate fixed meaning or higher purpose to life except what we choose:

" You are born, you suffer, you die — that's it. Perhaps, if you're lucky, you may get recycled as organic manure — but beyond that, you're just a number that happened to come up in the great casino of the universe." (Darwin, Spurgeon and the 'black dog,' Carl Wieland, Creation.com)

Wieland points out that even where Darwin is denied but other evolutionary cosmologies positing billions of years are proclaimed, as both evolutionary theism and progressive creation affirm,

".... hopelessness finds foothold. Any 'god' who condoned millions of years of death, cruelty, disease and bloodshed, certainly cannot be the personal, biblical God of love. And if the Bible got it so obviously wrong about the timing of creation as to mislead hundreds of millions of Christians until the present day, how can we really trust it about our eternal future? John 3:12 (ibid)

Evolutionary thinking as 'evolutionary fact'  has finally reached saturation point in government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, the public arena and increasingly within the whole body of the Church, which is why pathological lying, nihilism, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, mass murder, decadence, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.

All of this makes a devilish kind of sense if the personal Triune God Whose Living Words called all things into existence in six days of creation does not exist and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose since the evolving universe of matter and energy either created itself from nothing or was enabled toward this end by a god-word as evolutionary theology posits. 

If man is nothing but an excited node of evolution in process of becoming with neither hope of physical resurrection nor any accountability to his Maker for his actions here in this world then why not euthanize the elderly? Why should parents not allow their children to daily absorb the violent messages within most video games, rap music, and hard rock? And why ought children brought up on such violence not brutally attack each other and their parents?  Why should sexually-perverted adults not sexually pervert children, toss unwanted babies into trash bins, and use the force of perverted, meaningless law to vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others? Why not redefine sodomy, pedophilia, pederasty, bestiality and lesbianism as 'gay' and then marry 'gay' couples in Washington's National Cathedral? (Washington National Cathedral to Wed Same-Sex Couples, Ben Brumfield, CNN, Jan. 9, 2013)

If you are Obama and his Luciferian-Alinsky-minded henchmen, why not trash the Constitution, throw open the borders, divide Americans against each other, disarm Americans and enable jihadi terrorists to work their evil here?

If man is 'nothing' then why not contend — as the powerful pharmaceutical industry and its partisans within the American Psychiatric Association maintain — that dangerous psychotropic drugs are necessary for the control of America's 'epidemic' of mental illnesses caused by bad genes and chemical imbalances?  Since man is 'nothing' and  truth and moral law no longer exists why not call genetic and chemical disorders 'mental illnesses' in order to justify psychotropic substances despite that known adverse reactions associated with them include insomnia, anxiety, agitation, confusion, amnesia, depression, paranoid reaction, psychosis, hostility, delirium, hallucinations, abnormal thinking, depersonalization, lack of emotion, and mania — a dangerous and violence-prone mental derangement characterized by extreme excitement, delusion, and voices speaking into one's mind.

On the link between certain widely prescribed psychotropic drugs, suicide and homicidal violence, Dr. David Healy, a British psychiatrist and author of "Pharmageddon," said in November of 2012:

"Violence and other potentially criminal behavior caused by prescription drugs are medicines best kept secret..." (Prescription-Drug-Induced Violence Medicine's Best Kept Secret? Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) November 12, 2012)

Healy says this is a global issue, with medical, legal, ethical, and profound public policy dimensions:

"Never before in the fields of medicine and law have there been so many events with so much concealed data and so little focused expertise." (ibid)

One of the leading voices against the 'mental illness' known as ADHD is Dr. Fred Baughman, a pediatric neurologist. Baughman comments,

"(ADHD) is a contrived epidemic, where all 5 million to 6 million children on these drugs are normal. The country's been led to believe that all painful emotions are a mental illness and the leadership of the APA knows very well that they are representing (ADHD) as a disease when there is no scientific data to confirm any mental illness." ("Drugging Them Up," Ch. 2, IndoctriNation, p. 47)

Dr. Peter Breggin, psychiatrist and author of 'Talking Back to Prozac" concurs. Not only does ADHD not exist but,

"...there is great deal of evidence that stimulants cause brain damage with long term use." (ibid, p. 47)

Dr. Bruce Shortt agrees and observes that the prescribing of behavior modifying substances is probably the largest,

"...uncontrolled drug experiment in the history of the world....drugs are being given to children...especially little boys." (ibid, p. 41)

Shortt adds that Ritalin, Adderall, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil and other psychotropic drugs are,

"...being used to drug schoolchildren at rates that are difficult to comprehend...The Drug Enforcement Administration has estimated that 8 million children and adults were on Ritalin in 2000. Prescriptions for Ritalin increased by 700 percent from 1990 to 2001." (ibid, p. 42)

But if humans are 'nothing' then why not use them for drug experiments, especially as it is so profitable? And if you happen to be among the West's financial criminal elite then why not plunder the wealth and resources of unsuspecting Western and American tax-slave 'products of evolution' while offering them socialism, drugs, poverty, misery and Darwinism in return?

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

.....the super-wealthy and their families have as much as $32 trillion (USD) of hidden assets in offshore tax havens, representing up to $280 billion in lost income tax revenue! This study excluded such non-financial assets as real estate, precious metals, jewels, yachts, race horses, luxury vehicles and so on. Of the $32 trillion in hidden assets, $23 trillion is held by the super-rich of North America and Europe." (Globalresearch.ca/the-ascendancy-of-a-criminal-financial-elite)

The super wealthy are mainly global corporatists and bankers:

"England's leading banks, including Barclay's and a host of others, have been identified as having rigged the LIBOR, or inter-bank lending rate, for years in order to maximize profits. The Bank of New York, JP Morgan, HSBC, Wachovia and Citibank are among scores of banks, which have been charged with laundering drug money and other illicit funds according to investigations from the US Senate Banking Committees. Multi-national corporations receive federal bailout funds and tax exemptions and then, in violation of publicized agreements with the government, relocate plants and jobs in Asia and Mexico." (ibid)

If the living Triune God does not exist and man does not have to account to Him for his actions here in this world then why not, as Donald Kaul suggests, repeal the Second Amendment and declare the NRA,

".... a terrorist organization and make membership illegal.... (I would also raze the organization's headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that's optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that "prying the guns from their cold, dead hands" thing works for me."(Des Moines Register publishes gun-ban column advocating deadly violence against NRA, GOP leaders, Tim Graham, foxnews.com, Jan. 2, 2013)

Tim Graham points out that the so-called "news" media,

"...love to blame conservatives for the declining civility of our democratic discourse, but the hateful venom spewed by supposedly enlightened liberals like Kaul is as vicious as it gets. Publishing death threats is bad enough, but doing so in the name of promoting a more peaceful, compassionate society is beyond sick. But this clown will probably never realize the absurdity of his argument." (ibid)

But why not blame Conservatives and use deadly force against the NRA? Since man is 'nothing' and has no one to fear in this world or the other for what he does in this world then why not,

"...tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control." (ibid)

Dubbing himself the 'antichrist,' it was the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche who saw that the death of the Christian God had already begun to cast its first dark 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, the 'new' Christ 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 was the first apostate Christian to gaze fully upon man's loss of faith and its terrifying consequences. With no living God 'up there' to obstruct his vision, the nihilism (nothingness) he saw was agonizing. As there was no longer any Light from God above, there was only darkness in the hermetically sealed world below. The paralyzing darkness that overtook the mind of the antichrist was spiritual. It was not so much,

"....an exterior phenomenon crowding inward but rather an inner blinding that spread outward." (Ravi Zacharias, p. 27)

This was precisely Nietzsche's point. With the death of the Christian God of Revelation the darkness of objective meaninglessness would penetrate every avenue of thought and life, making life itself unbearable with the consequence of hedonism, abortion, euthanasia, sodomy, suicide, drugs, crime and murder becoming virtues.

Speaking through the writings of the Nietzsche, his spirit guide--the evil spirit Zarathustra---said that because God had died in the 19th century there would follow two terrible consequences beginning in the 20th century. (Romans 1:18)

First, the 20th century would become one of the most evil century's in history, and second, a universal madness (Romans 1:21, 22) would break out and turn the once glorious W. Europe and America upside-down.

With respect to the 20th century, in the wake of the insurrection against the living, personal God of Revelation that began during the Renaissance eventuating in the proclamation of the death of God and cataclysmic eruptions of fire, brimstone and rivers of blood during the 20th century, ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn said the world had never before known,

"...godlessness as organized, militarized, and tenaciously malevolent as that practiced by Marxism. Within the philosophical system of Marx and Lenin, and at the heart of their psychology, hatred of God is the principal driving force, more fundamental than all their political and economic pretensions. Militant atheism is not merely incidental or marginal to Communist policy; it is not a side effect, but the central pivot." (goodreads.com)

In his analysis of Marxist Communism and its' alter ego, scientific materialism, Frank Meyers, an early conservative intellectual concluded that Communism is the state form,

"....taken by a materialist faith determined to rule the world." Godless Communism 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 in America, George H. Nash, pp. 251-252)

In respect of the universal madness foretold by Zarathustra, though apostates and the apostatizing professed themselves wise, their cognitive thought processes would become darkened (vain) and with their conscience dead to sin they would become fools, meaning they would accept and publicly profess incredibly stupid conceptions of themselves (i.e., man is an evolved worm, ape or robot; man is evolving into god).

"And I will give children to be their princes, and the effeminate shall rule over them." Isaiah 3:4

In turning away from the Spirit of God and the truth He has given, children will murder their classmates and parents.  'Wise' males will become effeminate cowards and females mannish. They will be adolescent emotional-tyrants in adult-size bodies: sinister, greedy, spiteful, vindictive, treacherous, back-stabbing sophists. They will celebrate Lucifer (the devil) and in their madness actively seek the way of Luciferian initiation because they will be spiritually blind in regard to total reality. Like demons they will flee from the cross of Jesus but exalt the devil as the first free thinker, the genetic creator of man, the seething energy and angel of evolution. Truth will be lies, evil will be good, unfaithfulness will be faith and the 'wise' will preach and blaspheme from pulpits, exercise political power, enact legislation, and wield broken law to plunder, punish, and ruin.

Zarathustra has been right on both counts. First, apostatizing W. Europe and America, though dotted here and there by small islands of Light, decency and sanity, are today abominations of desolation---darkened, satanically inverted places ruled by the 'wise,' hence boiling over with madness, particularly Hollywood, academia, mainstream media and the highest, most powerful political offices in the land. Second, Nietzsche was made to show the 'wise' what is in store for them by spending the last eleven years of his life insane.

The Battle for the Soul of America

In "Albert Mohler and RC Sproul start historic debate over geology, evolution and the age of the earth," Tas Walker reports that a huge battle is finally shaping up within evangelical circles over the authority of the Bible, a debate that will spill into the wider community and impact scientific, geological and academic realms. (biblicalgeology.net)
 
Well before evangelicals entered the battle, the Orthodox Priest Seraphim Rose had thoroughly deconstructed evolution in his opus magnum "Genesis, Creation, and Early Man."   Since then the Roman Catholic "Kolbe Center for Study of Creation" has stepped up to the front line of the battle.  The Kolbe Center roots their apologetics in the true doctrine of special creation, supported by sound arguments from theology, philosophy and natural science in the hope that the demonstration of the bankruptcy of molecules-to-man evolution and the reasonableness of special creation will allow practical atheists to be able to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the claims of the Catholic Church.
 
The compromise within the whole body of the church is broad and deep, encompassing Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and the entirety of the Protestant church.  The battle is shaping up to be fierce due to the vast numbers of evolutionary compromisers within the whole body of the church whose stubborn pride, ignorance and apathy will prove to be a formidable opponent, one willing to reject and spiritually crucify defenders of special creation.

Though evolutionists mistakenly believe that creationists have entered the battle because they fear that 'science' affirms evolution this is not what causes creationists to dig in, said Walker:  
 
"It’s a committment to the truth. Many people, when they become aware of the logical contradictions between evolution and the gospel, can be alerted to the fact that there is a problem with evolution and long ages. That can motivate them to reconsider their uncritical acceptance of evolution."
 
In other words, committed Creationists have a heart for Truth that allows them to see for example, that the logical contradictions existing between the gospel and evolution are because the latter are the satanic antithesis of the gospel.  Whereas the gospel is the Revealed Word of God declaring creation and that the historical Adam was a male human person right from the start, the science of evolution is a key occult pagan Mystery doctrine stretching back to Babylon bespeaking alchemical transformism of one kind of thing to another kind:

 "[I]f one should search carefully, he will find that their doctrine is of necessity brought down to this. They tell us that one of their sages said that he, being one and the same person, was born a man, and afterward assumed the form of a woman, and flew about with the birds, and grew as a bush, and obtained the life of an aquatic creature—and he who said these things of himself did not, so far as I can judge, go far from the truth, for such doctrines as this—of saying that one should pass through many changes—are really fitting for the chatter of frogs or jackdaws or the stupidity of fishes or the insensibility of trees" (Gregory of Nyssa, The Making of Man 28:3; A.D. 379).

Evolutionary transformism appeared in the heart of Christendom during the Renaissance when certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered alchemical Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Kabbalah texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that occult hermetic science – the divine technology or Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through ritualistic spiritual evolution.
 
This is affirmed by G. H. Pember in his classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages." Pember thoroughly examines the role of fallen angels in connection with the magic (evolutionary transformism) they taught to pre-flood generations and compares them to the explosion of spiritism (open intercourse with evil spirits), astrology, the Mysteries and other occult traditions sweeping over Christendom.

Pember writes that the Mysteries are no longer veiled in mystery but boldly presented by the powerful occult brotherhood that emerged out of the Renaissance as the fruit of modern science, especially evolutionary philosophy, which the brotherhood assert was included in the instructions given,

"...to the initiates of the Hermetic, Orphic, Eleusinian, and Cabbalistic mysteries, and were familiar to Chaldean Magi, Egyptian Priests, Hindu Occultists, Essenes, Therapeutae Gnostics, and Theurgic Neo-Platonists." (Pember, pp.243-244)
 
Further affirmation is provided by the highly respected Orientalist metaphysician Rene Guenon (1886-1951)  in "The Spiritist Fallacy," his brilliant critical analysis of the Theosophy and Spiritism sweeping over Christendom. 

Guenon writes that in early Theosophist and spiritist (mediums/channelers) circles use of the word 'progress' or 'progressivist' preceded the use of the word 'evolution.' The roots of Theosophy, hence of evolution, stretch back to Babylon and thence to the ancient Upanishads of India and Mysteries of ancient Greece.  In its modernist version,  evolution describes the alchemical transformation and progress (reincarnation) of soul as it inhabits in succession the bodies of different kinds of beings over the course of thousands or even millions and billions of years.

Eventually the word evolution became preferred, especially by God-hating empirical realists and materialists like Karl Marx because it had a more 'scientific' allure:

"This kind of 'verbalism'...provides the illusion of thought for those incapable of really thinking..." wrote Guenon. (ibid, p. 231)

Guenon entitled his book "The Spiritist Fallacy" because modernist 'Christians' were receiving channeled messages from spirits who were teaching them the mysteries of spiritual evolution. Thus he defines progress, progressivism, and evolution as satanic and adherents as unconscious Satanists because for the most part their hubris and ignorance blind them to the extreme dangers of the "infernal fire" they play with:

"..every theory that notably disfigures the Divinity should in some measure be regarded as satanic; and conceptions of a limited God and of a God who evolves should here be placed in the front rank...." Thus "evolutionism" in general and Modernist "conceptions" in particular are satanic. The 'immanentist' Christ-force of the Liberal Church is satanic because it "openly submits the Divinity to becoming." (ibid, p. 257)
 
Though Guenon was not a Christian, he nevertheless described the outpouring of spiritism in distinctly Biblical terms.  What can be the meaning of this, he asked, but the rise of the Antichrist spirit?
 
"The coming struggle will emerge within the churches themselves; it will be precipitated by the enlightened (progressive) elements...the fight will then spread to thinking men and women everywhere who — in a protesting revolt — have denied orthodox churchianity and theology." (Spirit Master Djwhal Khul speaking through Alice Bailey, Externalization of the Hierarchy, pp. 453-454)

By the turn of the century, the beginnings of a counter-initiatic hierarchy of "enlightened progressive"  theologians and intellectuals had arisen and the evolutionary "abomination of desolation," having already descecrated much of old-line Protestantism, now crept into the Catholic Church.

Pope Pius X noted with alarm that progressive "thinking" was taking hold of the contemporary mind, and in that way taking possession of Western civilization, including Catholic laity and priests. The Pope defined progressivism as "Modernism" and in 1907 declared it and its primary doctrine evolution a synthesis of heresies in the encyclical called 'Pascendi Dominici Gregis."

The Pope noted that Modernist "Christian" heretics were claiming that Christ is in us (pantheist monism) and that through evolution an immanentist Christ-force progressed and/or "emanated from nature spontaneously and of itself."  

Since evolution implies continuous change, transformation, and/or progress, "Christian" heretics claim that immutable (unchanging) truths do not exist, therefore there is nothing immutable in the Revealed Word of God, the Bible or the Church....or for that matter in Americas' Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights and Rule of Law. All are subject to change, for in that evolution conceptually dissolves the living Word God incarnate (John 1:1) into nature, it also dissolves His image in man (personhood) into nature, hence man becomes the conscious product of evolution rather than the spiritual image bearer of God, making man and everything else imaginatively infused with impersonal divine spirit, power, intent, determinism (fate), and motion. Thus claim heretics, Christian theism itself lives and evolves, and "must in fact be changed."
 
As ‘living' Christianity has nearly evolved itself out of existence, science and the ‘god’ Evolution have progressed upward and now absolutely trump the Authoritative Word of God (John 1:1):

"Evolution is no longer viewed as a mindless affair, quite the opposite. It is mind enlarging its domain up the chain of species."  The god Evolution is the “universe...a mind that oversees, orchestrates, and gives order and structure to all things."   (Algeny, Jeremy Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)
 
After more than eighty years of evolutionary evangelization in the schools, media, seminaries, academia and elsewhere,  depersonalized conscious products of the god Evolution no longer feel themselves to be guests,
 
”..... in someone's else's home and therefore obliged to make our behavior conform with a set of pre-existing cosmic rules. It is our creation now. We make the rules. We establish the parameters of reality. We create the world, and because we do, we no longer feel beholden to outside forces. We no longer have to justify our behavior, for we are now the architects of the universe. We are responsible to nothing outside ourselves. for we are the kingdom, the power, and the glory forever and ever.” (ibid)

 The occult science of evolution is the evil religion of America's Ruling Class, a 'highly evolved' elitist left-right class of god-men, gurus, transcended masters, light-bearers and assorted moral imbeciles in general who dominate both political parties, our economy, military, media, Hollywood, judicial system, science, academia, many seminaries and pulpits.  
 
Their evil religion rests on four pillars of sand.   The two most important  are magic science and the 'god' Evolution, the third is relativism, and the fourth, an arrogant assumption of god-like superiority, is enabled and empowered by the first two.  In "America’s Ruling Class---and the Perils of Revolution," Angelo Codevilla summarizes their superior attitude as “we” are the best and brightest while the rest of Americans are un-evolved hominids, hence,

 “…retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional unless properly constrained.” ( July/Aug. 2010, The American Spectator)

Far from being the rational, scientifically enlightened, superior free-thinkers they imagine themselves to be, America’s Ruling Class are moral imbeciles and/or magical thinkers.   Respected Conservative Christian writer Frederick J. Hutchinson connects magical thinking with narcissism.  These two spiritual sicknesses go together like a dung-beetle on its’ pile.

 Hutchinson characterizes magical thinking with the ridiculous proverb that if a tree falls in a forest and no one hears it, it makes no noise, meaning that if a narcissist did not see or hear the tree fall then it did not fall since whatever the narcissist thinks, covets, envies, hates, or lusts after is the absolute meaning of reality at any given moment.  By extension of this insanity, if a narcissist hates God the Father then He does not exist, if he worships science and evolution then so must we all, and if he cannot see, hear, taste, touch, or detect his own soul in any way then souls do not exist. (Restoring History, Hutchinson, pp. 80-81)
 
Though the intellects of America’s ruling narcissists are intact, their conscience is depraved and their reason warped and perverted, thus intellect is useless for the pursuit of virtue.  The Ruling Class are spiritually dead, their materialized souls inward-turned away from God and His Light into the darkness and infinite smallness of idolatrous ‘self’ hence their wills are turned to wickedness.
 
This is why the Ruling Class constantly advance deceptions like science magic, evolution, sustainable growth, carbon footprints, and global change.   And because they hate the “retrograde, racist, and dysfunctional” masses in the great flyover zones of America, they sympathetically  support bogus “new” rights such as choice, euthanasia, sodomy, ‘gay’ marriage, perverse sex-education, universal healthcare, drugs, pornography, obscenity and Sharia because in reality all of these ‘rights’ ultimately unleash forces of destruction upon the hated masses in one way or another.
 
From the Renaissance to our own time, every step of the systematic downfall of Christian based Western civilization has been led by arrogant, defiant narcissists in rebellion against the Triune God who have deliberately fostered lies, corruption, hate, envy, narcissism, and an entitlement mentality among Americans so that today narcissism and magical thinking are at epidemic proportions at every level of society---even within churches.

At its founding and for 150 years after America was the world’s beacon of freedom and hope because it was founded on unchanging truths such as “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. . .”

Now however, a typical high school graduate no longer believes that anyone knows ‘the’ truth or even can know the truth. For him, anyone who claims to know the truth is a bigoted fundamentalist because he knows that human beings were never created but evolved. Evolution endows nothing, neither soul/spirit, personhood and unalienable rights nor the freedom to exercise them because man is nothing more than an aspect of nature.  Very briefly, this is the battle for America's soul.

Where the fighting is fiercest however, is right at the frontline where Truth warriors (Special Creationists) are waging a fierce battle against conscious and unconscious servants of Satan and the evil religion of evolution.

If the soul of America is to have any chance of survival, then reformation must begin in the whole body of the church before it will spill over and transform America.

Occult Evolution: Antediluvian, Babylonian, and Modern Expressions

In "The attack on biblical creation in UK schools continues," Phil Robinson reports that in the dechristianized U.K. unrelenting attacks against special creation (Genesis account) display a level of aggressive intolerance that is hard to stomach, coming as they do from self-proclaimed scientifically-enlightened ‘voices of reason.’  Some schools have already banned the teaching of special creation in favor of evolutionary science.   (creation.com, Mar. 9, 2014)
 
Other shrill 'voices of reason' go so far as to connect special creation to mental illness and child abuse. During a radio interview in Australia famous physicist and atheist propagandist Lawrence Krauss said that while in the United States recently, he stated that "teaching creationism is child abuse and I think it is." (Prayer News, a publication of Creation Ministries, Apr. 2014)

Throughout the West and here in America a slash-and-burn operation conducted against the Genesis account, particularly its' literal and historical elements, is justified by the false idea that evolution is science, thus intolerance of special creation is often presented as a ‘science versus religion’ or ‘faith versus reason’ issue.   So successful has this war of attrition been that younger generations of Westerners and Americans have been disconnected from both Western history and its’ founding Christian-based worldview, thus like seedlings recently popped up from the soil are unconcerned that special creation, where the ultimate source of life, being and unalienable rights are found, has nearly been displaced by anti-human pagan conceptions positing billions of years of evolutionary transformism from lower kinds of things to higher and higher kinds of things--- even non-human kinds of things:

 "For us, the best way to create new (‘artificial’) life forms and intelligence is to allow them to emerge through evolution, as nature does, only in much shorter timeframes and with much greater efficiency and variety.”

 “For conscious evolution to be successful, we need to observe and understand the actual workings of nature, in all its dynamism, to the point of profound reverence, or ‘worship.’ This is what I call extreme nature-worshipping… From the perspective of extreme nature-worshipping, the real significance of Darwin’s evolutionary theory is not that humans descended from lower species, but that we can continue to evolve.” (Cosmic Beings: Transhumanist Deism in Ted Chu’s Cosmic View, Institute for Ethics & Emerging Technology, Giulio Prisco)
 
The vicious name-calling, seething resentment toward and censorship of the six day creation account and of all who profess and teach it should raise the eyebrows of any rational thinking person.  If evolution really is a fact of science then why the irrational name-calling, ridicule, scorn, shunning, resentment, intolerance and demonization?
 
The answer is that the zealous worshipper of evolution is the Spirit of our age that emerged out of the Renaissance whose answer to the Lord Jesus Christ is the Cross (crucify Him) and whose fulfillment will be the Wicked One. (2 Thess. 2:1-8) 

 From the Renaissance to our own time the Spirit has been transgressing, blaspheming, and departing that it need not obey His voice.   Like a dog returning to its own vomit, the Spirit has returned to its first love: the cult of demons in the Godless universe of matter, psychic energy, and animated forces where time is changed, past history rendered meaningless, and the liberated Spirit imbibes the cup of wrath, an intoxicating mixture of Babylonian Mysteries, incantations, spiritism, Gnosticism, sorcery, witchcraft, Hermetic magic, Kabbalah, reincarnation, astrology, and other devilish occult traditions. 
 
The Book of Revelation pinpoints Babylon as the post-flood center of an occult pagan Mystery religion based on advaitic monism, science of magic transformism, exalted priesthood, gnosis, secret initiations, psychic-powers, familiar spirits, androgyny, sexual perversions, and other evils.  

Babylon embraced the Great Lie. Its inhabitants claimed the title, "I AM." The root source of this evil religion and its occult power was the Great Dragon himself....Lucifer:
 
".... the Great Lie (is) the foundation stone of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sufism, Jainism, Sikhism, Taoism, the Kabala, the Greek Hermetic, Eleusinian and Gnostic beliefs, Neo-Platonism, all the occult creeds from Theosophy and the Masonic orders to the Rosicrucian's (and) the New Age movement. The Great Lie is...the belief that man is God, that his true identity is the immortal self...that as God, he will never die (and) Sin and depravity are...illusions since this inner divinity is at man's core." (The Great Lie, Tal Brooke, SCP Journal, Vol. 29:2-29:3, 2005)
 
Though the Spirit of our age claims the title “I AM” it nevertheless follows after and falls down before other fascinating men: theoreticians of evolutionary science, nature philosophy and evolutionary pagan theology. These charismatic Pied Pipers are possessed of surpassing powers of persuasion and inflexible determination of will to which the Spirit assigns more honor than to anything else. 
 
The Spirit has usurped the throne of the Word Incarnate (John 1:1) because He is not good, not just or benevolent but a devil, an evil Tyrant Who, with His infliction of suffering in this life and eternal punishment in the next must be deposed. (Psalm 2:2-3) 

 Blaming our Lord for their own sins the proud, self-righteous Spirit of rebellion, hypocrisy and negation says to Him, “…you are not my father.”  My father is the god of forces, therefore:
 
"I am I, I come out of myself, and in choice and action I make myself."
(Daniel Bell, quoted by Herbert Schlossberg in "Idols for Destruction," p. 43)

 In the final analysis, the Spirit of our age is the “striving human will” seeking desperately to launch itself,
 
"...into minor godhood in an evolving cosmos through the mechanisms of directed spiritual evolution, spiritualized science and spirit contact." The 'new' spirituality now presents itself as the "rightful replacement for the Revealed Word (and) proclaims its spiritual liberation from the worldview that informs Christianity and its freedom from (the) personal and wholly other God.  But this new way of self-salvation (is) little more than the refurbishing of an ancient spiritual mistake."  (The Making of the New Spirituality: the Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition, James A. Herrick, p. 279)

 “As it was in the days of Noah…”
 
The ominous signs of this age are obvious, said the English theologian G.H. Pember (1837-1910) in his book, "The Antichrist Babylon and the Coming Kingdom."  Just as it was during the pre-flood generations, open intercourse with demons (spiritism) is now common throughout Christendom and even in Russia.   In France it is the national pastime.   The apostles of the powers of darkness are everywhere proclaiming their scientific and evolutionary theories demonstrating that the world created itself and had no need of a Creator (p. 60) while the miseries which have resulted from sin,
 
“....are blasphemously charged upon the Almighty, Who so loved the world as to give His son for it (but is now) impiously forbidden to curb and discipline the rebels who owe their existence to the breath of His mouth.  And when we see such men as John Stuart Mill (and) John Morley, the late Chief Secretary for Ireland...guiding their fellows to defiant insubordination, we can scarcely wonder that Bradlaugh...said, ‘This world might have been happy, had not the shadow of God fallen upon it.” (pp. 35-36, 1888)
 
Rise of Occult Evolutionary Science 
 
In the impeccably researched, "The Making of the New Spirituality," James Herrick observes that the scientific tradition in Renaissance Europe developed around three basic approaches: the organic, the mechanical and the magical.   It was magical and/or occult science that provided the greatest impetus for scientific exploration. (p. 45)

 C.S. Lewis underscores this point in “The Abolition of Man:”
 
You will even find people who write about the sixteenth century as if Magic were a medieval survival and Science the new thing that came in to sweep it away. Those who have studied the period know better. There was very little magic in the Middle Ages: the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are the high noon of magic. The serious magical endeavour and the serious scientific endeavour are twins: one was sickly and died, the other strong and throve. But they were twins. They were born of the same impulse. I allow that some (certainly not all) of the early scientists were actuated by a pure love of knowledge. But if we consider the temper of that age as a whole we can discern the impulse of which I speak.”
 
In "God and the Knowledge of Reality," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), reveals the 'temper of that age' as a spirit of rebellion against the Christian God, and this is why occult science and evolutionary thinking provided the greatest impetus. During the Renaissance, certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Kabbalah texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that occult hermetic science – the divine technology or Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through ritual procedures (spiritual evolution) is the best proof of the divinity of Christ. In other words said Molnar,
 
".....by the time of the Renaissance the esoteric texts of the first centuries A.D. had acquired in scholarly and humanist circles an unparalleled prestige, confronting as equals the texts held sacred by the church. In Pico's estimation, 'nulla est scientia que nos magis certificet de divinitate Christ quam magia et Cabala' (there is no science that would prove for us Christ's divinity better than magic and the Cabala.)" (pp. 78-79)
 
Hermetic magic and Jewish Kabbalah are ancient Mystery Religion traditions, as affirmed by G. H. Pember in his classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages."   Pember thoroughly examines the role of fallen angels in connection with the magic (occult transformism) they taught to pre-flood generations and compares them to the explosion of spiritism (open intercourse with evil spirits), astrology, the Mysteries and other occult traditions sweeping over Christendom.

Pember writes that the Mysteries are no longer veiled in mystery but boldly presented by the powerful occult brotherhood that emerged out of the Renaissance as the fruit of modern science, especially evolutionary philosophy, which the brotherhood assert was included in the instructions given,

"...to the initiates of the Hermetic, Orphic, Eleusinian, and Cabbalistic mysteries, and were familiar to Chaldean Magi, Egyptian Priests, Hindu Occultists, Essenes, Therapeutae Gnostics, and Theurgic Neo-Platonists." (Pember, pp.243-244)
 
Hermetic Magic

Hermeticism is an ancient Egyptian secret magic tradition based on a set of fourteen books known
collectively as the Corpus Hermeticum attributed to a mysterious figure known as Hermes Trismegistus. Implied in Hermeticism is an evolutionary process of magical transformism (spiritual evolution) moving from one kind of lower thing to another kind of higher thing:
 
"Human beings are themselves the product of a long spiritual evolutionary process that moves from 'creeping things' to fish, mammals, birds and then people.  Humans can---through occult knowledge and extraordinary ability---continue this evolutionary process and become daemons, then gods, and finally planets or stars." (The Making of the New Spirituality: The Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition, James A. Herrick, p. 40)
 
With respect to Hermes identity, researchers of antiquity are divided.  Some believe Hermes was a mythical figure.  Others argue he was Ham or his son Cush.  The historian Samuel Shuckford argues that Hermes was Pathrusim, king of Thebais, the son of Mizraim, the son of Ham.   His Egyptian name was Tyoth or Thoth.  (The Sacred and Profane History of the World Connected, 1808)

 In any case, it was Thoth-Hermes who instructed his brothers in the arts and science magic of alchemy or transmutation of a lower kind of thing into a higher kind of thing. For example, after a lengthy transformative process out of the eternally existing divine abyss (primordial matter), the self-created Sun-God Ra boasted that he “came into being from primordial matter.”  He made all the forms under which he “appeared by means of the god-soul” which he raised up out of Nu, primordial matter. (The Long War Against God, Dr. Henry Morris, p. 243)

 Occult Kabalah
 
"The Kabalah is the key to the occult sciences; and the Gnostics were born of the Kabalists.” (Occult Mason Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, p. 626)
 
Like its’ Hermetic counterpart, Kabala implies a process of evolutionary transformism:
 
“...the older Enoch book (gives) a fuller insight into the "Merkabah" and "Bereshit" lore of the ancients than the "Hekalot," which present but fragments, while the central figure of the Cabala, Meṭaṭron-Enoch, is seen in ch. lxx.-lxxi. in a process of transformation.” (Cabala, Jewish Encyclopedia) 

According to Helena Blavatsky, one of the key architects of Luciferian New Age pantheism, Kabalah derived,
 
“.... from the older secret doctrines concerning divine things and cosmogony, which were combined into a theology after the time of the captivity of the Jews in Babylon. All the works that fall under the esoteric category are termed Kabalistic.” (Blavatsky, Theosophical Glossary, p. 168)
 
The godless cosmogony of Kabala teaches the gradual condensation or evolutionary progression of a primal substance into visible matter.  This is a fundamental, 
 
"... doctrine of the Cabala (and) is the ancient Semitic conception of the ‘primal ocean,’ known to the Babylonians as ‘Apsu’ and called by the Gnostics βύθος =  (Anz, ‘Die Frage nach dem Ursprung des Gnostizismus,’ p. 98).

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

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

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

 In conclusion, the Babylonian Mystery Religion is the mother of evolutionary Cabala, Gnosticism and all other occult pagan traditions:
 
“....especially does Gnosticism testify to the antiquity of the Cabala. Of Chaldean origin... Gnosticism was Jewish in character long before it became Christian... Gnosticism—that is, the cabalistic ‘Hokmah’ (wisdom)—seems to have been the first attempt on the part of the Jewish sages to give the empirical mystic lore, with the help of Platonic and Pythagorean or Stoic ideas, a speculative turn; hence the danger of heresy…of which the systems of Philo, an adept in Cabala...show many pitfalls...Jewish gnosticism unquestionably antedates Christianity, for Biblical exegesis had already reached an age of five hundred years by the first century C.E.  Judaism had been in close contact with Babylonian-Persian ideas for at least that length of time, and for nearly as long a period with Hellenistic ideas. Magic, also, which,...was a not unimportant part of the doctrines and manifestations of gnosticism, largely occupied Jewish thinkers. There is, in general, no circle of ideas to which elements of gnosticism have been traced, and with which the Jews were not acquainted.”  (Cabala, Jewish Encyclopedia)

 Building  the New Tower of Babylon

 In the essay, “The Paganization of Biblical Studies,” Dr. Peter Jones, director of truthxchange and adjunct professor of Westminster Seminary CA., writes that the books of the evolutionary Gnostic pagan Presbyterian heretic Lloyd Geering, Emeritus Professor of Religious Studies at Victoria University, are promoted by the most powerful element of the Spirit of our age—the international occult New Age Luciferian elite-pagans---as programmatic templates for the future utopian pagan community from the point of view of Christian apostasy and socialism undergirded by evolutionary pantheist orthodoxy.

According to Geering, the world's future culture will be post-Christian, global, religiously pagan and evolutionary.  This agenda is remarkably similar to that of Teilhard de Chardins’ disciple, the ex-Roman Catholic Thomas Berry in his book, "The Great Work" which is also being implemented through texts of the UN's global programs.

The rising New World Order will be post-Christian because evolution proves that human beings, as they evolved out of primordial matter, created language, then symbols, then religious explanations and God Himself.  Therefore tomorrow's culture will be pluralistic, syncretistic, relativistic and poly-gendered because evolution integrates all scientific, cultural, religious, economic and human gender into one worldwide anthill thus when the global society emerges from the evolutionary process,

"…it will require humanity to develop a new consciousness and a new form of spirituality" because "the new story which has become basic to the global world begins with a new word or idea...evolution.” (ibid, Jones)

Like its’ mother, Mystery Babylon, the scientifically-enlightened ‘new' global religion of evolutionary transformism is occult pantheist advaita monism, which means that as an ancient impersonal god-force is within the cosmos, earth, human beings, rats, weeds, tumble bugs, cancer and everything else then all things are essentially 'one.'  Since the god-force is within all things it is within the demonically 'illumined' consciousness of every spiritually evolved initiate and adept.

This being the case, by means of trance states, brain-altering drugs, transcendental meditation, visualization, channeling, Zen Buddhism, Kundalini yoga, tantra, and other occult ways, the initiate can channel the god-force within thereby becoming a little god who controls matter because he controls mind. The physical world then, is an illusion because reality is inside the divine mind of the god-man.

This way of thinking is captured by Orwell in his book, “Nineteen Eighty-Four” in which negation of the physical world is an integral part of the social and political philosophy of Big Brother and his despotic Party. At one stage in the book, Winston stumbles upon the shocking realization that in the end the Party would announce that two plus two made five because the logic of Big Brothers’ position required it since the existence of external reality was denied by his philosophy.  Thus when the Thought Police agent O’Brien tortures Winston for politically incorrect “wrong thought” he states,

“We control matter because we control the mind.  Reality is inside the skull.  You will learn by degrees, Winston.  There is nothing that we could not do.  Invisibility, levitation---anything.  I could float off this floor like a soap bubble if I wish to….You must get rid of these nineteenth-century ideas about the laws of Nature.  We make the laws of Nature.” (Orwell, “The New Spirituality and its Hallmarks, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 30:4-31:1, 2007, p. 19)

Evolving Toward Catastrophe

In "The Aquarian Conspiracy," a book that has been called 'the New Age Bible,' Marilyn Ferguson (1938-2008) admits that the ‘new age’ evolutionary pantheism and occult technologies being employed throughout America were at one time the private domain of ancient initiates.   In fact, as Constance Cumbey reveals in her thoroughly researched book, "The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow," many New Age historians claim their occult religion and techniques originated in Atlantis and afterward were preserved in the ancient land of Babylon,

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

 After the Flood, said Shuckford, while the faithful Noah remained in the East and established the worship of the true God, eighty years after the Flood his rebellious son Ham and his sons together with other family members departed and eventually settled in the plains of Shinar where they resolved to build a tower, a monument to their own pride, vanity, ambition and rebellion against God. (ibid, p.94)

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

In his well-researched book, "Ancient Post-Flood History," Ken Johnson, Th.D., reports that the sons of Ham persuaded the people to accept that the true God was merely an impersonal creative force within all of nature, making man the highest form of life/god.  Through the power of persuasion, Ham and his sons revived magical evolutionary transformism, pantheism and idolatry. (pp. 47-48)

 Eventually Ham was deified and worshipped by later pagans as the gods Cronus and Jupiter:

"Ham is represented by many writers as a very wicked, immodest, and profligate creature: Berosus (i) makes him a magician, and to be the same with Zoroast or Zoroastres, and speaks of him as the public corrupter of mankind; and says that he taught men to live as before the flood, to lie with mothers, sisters, daughters, males and brutes, and creatures of all sorts; and that he actually did so himself, and therefore was cast out by his father Janus, or Noah, and got the name of "Chem", the infamous and immodest..." Upon seeing his father's nakedness Ham,  "told his two brethren without; he went out of the tent after he had pleased himself with the sight... and in a wanton, ludicrous, and scoffing manner, related what he had seen: some of the Jewish Rabbins (k), as Jarchi relates, say that Canaan first saw it, and told his father of it; and some say (l), that he or Ham committed an unnatural crime with him; and others (m), that he castrated him; and hence, it is supposed, came the stories of Jupiter castrating his father Saturn, and Chronus his father Uranus."    Genesis 9:22 Gill's Exposition

History did not begin after billions of years of evolution when primitive hominids swung down from the trees and discovered how to scratch crude symbols onto rocks.    Nor did it begin after the Flood.  At least 2,000 years of human existence preceded the Flood, meaning that when Noah and his family entered the ark they carried at least one hundred years of pre-flood memories, traditions, technology, and superior knowledge. Their world view was shaped by the historical Adam and Eve and the generations of their offspring.   Thus Noah and his family brought with them not only the knowledge of the personal God, Special Creation, fall of man, the Deluge, sacrifice to God for the propitiation of sin, the arts of weapon-making and warfare, knowledge of letters, symbols, math, architecture, science, cosmetics, and agriculture  but knowledge of  first-hand encounters with Watchers, their occult teachings, the Nephilim, and primeval pantheism tied to magic, spiritism, herbal abortifacients, human and animal sacrifice, drinking of blood, males marrying males and even beasts, and many other evils. 

 In affirmation, the eminent researcher of antiquity James Bailey said:

 “…human history can now be hesitantly traced back as an unbroken narrative to 4000 B.C….the picture emerging…is one of the Fall of Man in historic terms as well as his rise; it is a picture…more of degradation than of success; it is a picture of monotheism breaking down into polytheism and of the struggle to return to monotheism.  The establishment view of the history of religion gradually progressing from animism to polytheism (then) to monotheism is the reverse of facts.” (“The God-Kings and the Titans: The New World Ascendancy in Ancient Times 1973, p. 296) 

Four thousand years before Christ were the antediluvian generations and the Watchers in the post-flood world, making the billions of years of evolutionary transformism a fabulous fable.  It is neither ‘new’ (Ecclesiastes 1: 9-11) nor scientific except in the sense of pre-flood and post-flood occult science and attendant traditions revised and revamped for our own time, as Geering unhappily discovered. 

 Dr. Jones writes that Geering was surprised when he found out that the ‘New Spirituality’ has "links with pre-monotheistic...nature religions," leading Jones to wryly comment that in an odd turn of events,

 "....contemporary spiritual' evolution goes backwards!  Biblical theism disturbed evolutionary progress.  The clocks have to be put back (for we are in the presence of) a powerful pagan/Gnostic theological agenda, claiming to be spanking new, objective and scientific, but as old as the hills." 

Clocks have to be turned back, all the way back to the days of Noah in the pre-flood world where evolution is closely connected to the devil’s lie that man is a being who though presently limited in time and space is nevertheless capable of achieving a great leap of being and magically evolving into a much more powerful god-like being in the future. 

 As the scientifically endarkened Gnostic pagan Spirit of our age simultaneously worships on the altar of ‘self’ as it self-righteously peers down its’ long, pointy nose and contemptuously sniffs and sneers at the remnant of backwards, unscientific, anti-evolution  faithful, in reality it is the entirely deluded pagan Spirit that is on a collision course with a modern version of the pre-flood world catastrophe----and we know how badly that ended.

The Infernally Acute Dangers of Occult Evolutionary Science

The problem with modernity, said G.K. Chesterton, is the program and attitude of scientism, a serpent,

"...as slippery as an eel," a "demon...as elusive as an elf," an "evil and elusive creature." (The Restitution of Man, Michael D. Aeschliman, p. 43)

Strong words, but entirely applicable given the inevitable darkeness in the form of intolerance and hostility toward and condemnation of creation ex nihilo and the faithful who affirm it that eventually overtakes the minds of evolutionary humanists, both atheist and theological. Consider the following:

1. In Kirktonholme primary school, East Kilbride, Scotland, Headteacher Alexandra MacKenzie and her deputy Elizabeth Mockus were redeployed to backroom duties while an investigation was to be carried out. A number of parents had complained about two books which had been handed out to their children during a school assembly. One answered the question ‘How you know God is real?’ and the other was titled ‘Exposing the myth of evolution.’ (The attack on biblical creation in UK schools continues, Phil Robinson, creation.com)

2. A parent and also a Member of the Scottish Parliament have called for an investigation, after a physics teacher, Leonard Rogers, during a discussion on the big bang with his class at a school in Midlothian, informed them that evolution was not proven. Apparently, he also told the class that he was a Christian with strong creationist beliefs. (ibid)

3. As a result of the first two news stories, the Scottish Secular Society called for the ban of creationism in science classes in Scottish schools. While they acknowledged that they had no issue with pupils understanding that not everyone accepts evolution, they stated that the only place that creationism had in Scottish schools was “within a discussion context in religious and moral education classes”. (ibid)

4. Professor Alice Roberts, in an interview with the Times Education Supplement (London), has called for new laws in the UK to extend the ban of teaching creationism beyond state-run schools to all independent schools, which would include privately run Christian schools.10 (ibid)

5. During a radio interview in Australia famous physicist and atheist propagandist Lawrence Krauss said that while in the United States recently, I stated that "teaching creationism is child abuse and I think it is." (Prayer News, a publication of Creation Ministries, Apr. 2014)

The vicious name-calling, seething resentment toward and censorship of six day creation ex nihilo and of all who profess and teach it should raise the eyebrows of any rational thinking person. If the evidence for evolution really is so overwhelming why the anger, name-calling, ridicule, scorn, shunning, resentment and intolerance? Why can no challenges be discussed?

What is Wrong with Evolutionary Humanists?

What is wrong with them is connected to why they reject creation ex nihilo, a spiritual pathology analyzed by the great Russian thinker and theologian Vladimir Soloviev (1853-1900) in his "Tale of the Antichrist."   In his book Soloviev predicts and examines many of the signs of our times, especially the sign pertaining to all people, especially apostatizing theologians, who refuse to acknowledge their own sinful condition.   According to Soloviev, the advancing dechristianization of the whole body of the church is due to the betrayal of the Way of Christ by faithless theologians and like-minded intellectuals who choose to stay within the church and work their transformative evil.   Soloviev characterizes this particular sign as the Spirit of our age, the Spirit of apostasy that will find completion in the Antichrist.

Another important sign is a "form of science" by which proud, rebellious theologians, intellectuals and the virulent antitheists and atheists they have produced magnify themselves above the Revealed Word, and either conceptually 'murder' God or make Him subject to laws of science so as to magnify themselves while persuading the uninformed, easily intimidated, fearful and carnal 'inner circle' seekers to accept non-Christian (pagan) traditions and inventions such as evolution:

"Evolution itself is accepted by zoologists not because it has been observed to occur or....can be proved by logically coherent evidence to be true, but because the only alternative, special creation, is clearly incredible."  (Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture, Herbert Schlossberg, p. 145)

The common tactic employed by evolutionary theologians and intellectuals involves the reduction of the Genesis account, particularly the first three books, to allegory and myth, a ploy that eliminates the physical Adam from which all people descended and the sin that he transferred to the rest of the human race. This strikes directly at the heart of the Gospel: the need for the ‘last Adam’ to provide for us an escape from the wrath of God against sin incurred by the first Adam.   In this way, not only is the work of Christ on the cross rendered superfluous, meaning the heart of the faith is ripped out, but God is made responsible for sin and evil.

There is nothing new about this tactic.  Long ago, the teachings of certain ancient Church Fathers regarding the apostasy toward the end of the church age predicted the reappearance of this ploy. The fathers categorized it a Gnostic pagan heresy.

In "Heresies 6.10" Hipolytus writes that Simon Magus feigned faith and allegorized much of Scripture, especially Genesis, to support his evolutionary Hermetic and Gnostic occult pantheist teachings.   Church Fathers Ireneaus, Tertullian and Clement of Alexandria reveal that Gnostic cult leader Marcion rejected the Old Testament, taught that the God of the Old Testament and his prophets are evil, made God the author of sin and removed all references that Christ was Creator (John 1:1)   (Ireneaus, "Against Heresies 1.26, 5.1," Tertullian "Against Marcion 2.17," Clement of Alexandria, "Against Heresies 4.29)

In this light the identity of the second sign (the form of science) is revealed as occult and/or magic science.   According to the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921-2010) occult science and its' constant companion, evolution, emerged in the heart of Christendom when certain theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered ancient occult Hermetic magic and Jewish Kabbalah texts which they translated resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that this occult science – the divine technology or ancient Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through ritual procedures and spiritual evolution is the best proof of the divinity of Christ. In other words said Molnar,

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

Occultism is the ‘science’ and worldview of fallen angels, hence it is arcane knowledge of the hidden dimension, its' animated powers and possibilities. This occult gnosis is meant for adepts, initiates and fellow practitioners of the magic way that originated in Babylon.

Occult sciences include, but are not limited to, Hermetic magic, alchemy, astrology, divination, and spiritualism (contact with spirits). Interpretation of occultism and its concepts can be found in nature philosophies, and occult nature systems such as Gnosticism, Theosophy, Wicca, Satanism, Thelema, Theosophy, international Luciferian Masonry and esoteric evolutionary science.

In the impeccably researched "Scientific Analysis of the Writings of Alice A. Bailey and their Applications,"  Robert A. Hermann Ph.D. traces modern evolutionary science – which has infiltrated and corrupted much of the whole body of the Christian Church – back to 1750 and the Spanish-French occultist the Martine's de Pasqually (1715?-1779) whose biological conception predates Darwin's theory and held that an adept spiritually evolves into higher and higher forms on various evolutionary levels. (raherrmann.com)

The occult way of intellectual and moral transcendence was made possible by the devil’s agents who invented theories of spiritual/cosmic evolution.   Molnar writes that travelers on this highway were characteristically recruited from theology.  For example:

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

Renaissance occultists paved the way for the rationalism of the European Enlightenment.   Rationalism glorified the mind of sinful man rather than the Word of God.   These seeds of corruption erupted into a huge outpouring of anti-God, anti-Christian endeavor resulting in the subordination of the Word of God to the findings of occult science and evolutionary thinking which in turn opened the door for yet more corruption in the 19th century: theological liberalism (evolutionary pantheism) and 'higher criticism.'
 
Theological liberalism and its' primary doctrine evolution, developed in Germany.  Its first real manifestation was at the University of Tubingen where Ferdinand Baur (1792-1860) had formed a school of faux theology for the purpose of raising doubts about the Bible.  This evil scheme was designed to undermine the Revealed Word as the exclusive fount of truth.  Among areas which came under suspicion were the Genesis account, the person of Christ, the fall and human sin, the authority of Scripture, the transcendence of God, the Way of salvation, and the doctrine of the Christian Church.  (From Old Gnosticism to New Age, Alan Morrison, SCP Journal, Vol. 28:4-29:1, 2005, pp. 32-33)

 Theological liberalism owed much to the occult Hermetic pantheist philosophy of George Hegel (1770-1811).   Hegel was an important member of the occult 'theological' brotherhood that emerged out of the Renaissance.  His early writings were very much influenced by Christoph Oetinger (1702-1782), the gnostic occult Kabbalist and disciple of Renaissance Hermetic-Kabbalists such as Emanuel Swedenborg and Jakob Boehme (1575-1624). Hegels’ dialectic, or pantheist theory of historical evolution, dovetailed neatly with liberal theology’s evolutionary pantheism and its’ outrageous claim that Christianity was a hybrid religion of the Near East. (ibid)
 
This period also saw the appearance of 'higher criticism,' the evil-twin of theological liberalism.   Higher criticism cast suspicion upon the authorship and dating of the books of the Bible in a further attempt to undermine the truth-claims of Scripture.  Such devilish exploration cast suspicion upon the identity of the historical Jesus, typified in the anti-supernaturalistic book, "The Life of Jesus," written in 1835 by Baur's pupil, D.F. Strauss (1808-1874). (ibid)
 
When Darwin published his theory, the devil’s servants of sin eagerly embraced it, as with this development the Spirit of our age set its’ dictatorial seal of 'science' on a critical, rationalistic, and skeptical approach to the Word of God that elevates the mind of sinful man, occult science, and evolution above the Word of God.

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; but fools despise wisdom and instruction." Proverbs 1: 7  '"Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done." Romans 1:28

The Spirit of our age is man who has lost his faith, led into unbelief by foolish theological 'clay' that has usurped the throne of the Potter because the clay covets control of His divine powers.  The fool is thus a defiant, covetous thief whose stubborn pride leads him to despise and reject the Revelation of God, particularly the literal and historic elements of the Genesis account of creation in favor of his own fallible reasoning, spurious theories, and fallacious occult science-gnosis (i.e., billions of years of evolution from primordial matter to man).   Digging himself in yet deeper, the foolish Spirit transfers his own sins, failings and weaknesses onto the faithful in order that he can crucify them for holding fast to the Word and Authority of the Lord.

Without Revelation from God however, the fool is unable to understand himself, to know who and what he is, what is wrong with himself and what needs to be done about it.  So deeply deluded is the fool that he cannot see that by the logic of his position he has made himself into a broken cistern that cannot hold water. (Jeremiah 2:3)  Furthermore, he believes in vain that he is safe when in fact he has made a covenant with death, and with hell he is agreement for he has made lies his refuge, and under falsehood does he hide himself.   (Isaiah 28:15)

So what higher Truths from our Lord has the fool in his depravity denied to himself and to all who are persuaded by him?

Beginning with the literal and historic elements of Genesis:

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

Here God reveals three points for our consideration.  First, God instructs us that He formed the body of man from physical matter as the potter does the clay.   To this initial act Job refers when he says,

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

God teaches us that He formed Adam's body from physical matter and then breathed into it "the breath of life" producing a twofold life, sensual and spiritual.   Here God reveals to us that life is only with Him.  It does not magically evolve from lifeless matter or energy resulting from an inexplicable cosmic explosion (Big Bang).   Life was not seeded on earth by highly evolved extraterrestrials nor did mankind incrementally evolve from lower life forms over billions of years.  Life is from the living God, thus His breath of life instantaneously, in the twinkling of an eye, became the spirit of man, the principle of life within him which as the Lord reveals to us, "is the spirit that quickens." (John 6:63; 2 Cor. 3:6)

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

In Christian thought, a person is a spirit and personality is the total individuality of the spirit. Without spirit there is no person.

The key to individual liberty in the temporal sphere is man's spiritual liberty contrasted against a genetically programmed animal-like orientation. Animals have souls but not spirits, which are linked to intelligence, imagination, conscience, sensitivity, self-consciousness, reflection and the capacity for truth and moral goodness. ("Body, Mind, and Soul," a sermon delivered by Pastor Louis Pernot at the Temple de l'Etoile in Paris, Nov. 28, 2010)

A person is uniquely free because his spirit can spiritually transcend the physical matter of his own body to access the supernatural dimension as Paul affirms:

"Now the Lord is Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." (2 Cor. 3:17)

It is vitally important that we not confuse our own spirit with the substance of the Spirit of God as do Eastern pantheists and their apostate Western counterparts: liberal pantheist Christianity, evolutionary Christianity, the New Physics, and occult New Age.  Scripture plainly distinguishes the substance of God from the spirit of man. (Ro. 8:16)

So far, we now know by what God has revealed  to us, that Adam was made up of two independent substances, the physical body and the spirit.   But when God placed the spirit within the body of Adam the combination of these instantaneously produced a third part, his soul, thus Adam became a living soul:

"The essence of the human is not the body, but the soul....For the sake of the soul...the Son of God came into the world...." (Incomplete Work on Matthew, Homily 25, Ancient Christian Devotional, Oden and Crosby, p. 153)

A human life is a soul which informs inert matter, thus a body without a soul is no more than a mass of cells that would quickly disintegrate.

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

Early Church Father Tertullian describes the soul as the covering for spirit and the body that of the soul.  Adam therefore was a living soul in the sense that spirit and body were merged in the third part, the soul.  The soul as the uniting medium became the cause of Adam's individual personality.

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

As we have seen, when God made Adam and Eve they consisted of three parts, spirit, soul, and body, and of these three, the soul has predominated in its power over the body since Adam's fall. (Heb. 4:12; 1 Thessalonians 5:23)

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

In the meantime, even in the case of those who have been born again, meaning their spirits are being cleansed and regenerated, the intellectual faculty is still so incompetent that though such people possess Truth in Divine Revelation they are nevertheless, as Paul tells us, able for the present to know and understand it only in part. 

The Fall 

The disobedience of Adam resulted in spiritual separation from God.  Spirit (God-consciousness) was at first reduced to the state of an almost silent bystander, then as its light faded and disappeared it could no longer either preserve Adam and Eve's bodies from decay or clothe them in glory.   The threat of God was now an accomplished fact; the reign of death and suffering had begun.   With the death of spirit, the soul, manifested sometimes in error-prone, prideful intellectuality, faulty reasoning, hypocrisy, vain imaginings, and futile conceptions, sometimes in sensuality, and often both, would reign over spiritually dead man, who is now natural man.  Natural man is unable to hold intercourse with God save when momentarily roused by the Spirit of the Lord to a sense of responsibility.  This state of affairs is what Jude refers to when he speaks of the natural men who cause divisions, contentions and strife; the  men devoid of the Spirit. Jude 1:19 (Earth's Earliest Ages, G.H. Pember)

"....they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away." Psalm 64: 8

The soulish intellect of the natural man is not merely fallible but the most dangerous of all gifts from God unless guided by the Spirit of God.  It is a deceitful instrument at best, capable of calling evil good and good evil.  The blinding pride of natural man makes matters much worse, for when such a man sets his heart upon an idea, such as Renaissance theolgians with their Hermetic-Kabbalah,  liberal theologians with their evolutionary 'Christianity,' Darwin with his evolutionary theory, and Teilhard de Chardin with his evolution-based New Religion, the considerable powers of sinful man's soul are used for the single-minded purpose of dominating the will and reason of other souls, of altering their perception of reality by making foolish, vain inventions and illusions as persuasive and like reality as possible.  In this way, spiritually-darkened souls can mesmerize and lead unsuspecting, spiritually-undiscerning souls astray.

The common denominator of all of these devilish inventions is naturalism, and this goes for progressive creationism and evolutionary theism.  In order for any of these inventions to work, God must either be "murdered" or be made subject to the laws of science, but especially to the clay that covets control and management of Divine Power.  Toward this goal, God must be accessible, meaning He must be here, in the natural dimension, and this implies that idolatrous man shares the substance of God.

According to the inner logic of naturalism, all things, including human beings, are subject to the evolving, unfolding universe of energy.   With regard to man's soul (rational nature), it differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts.  Like the beasts, man is not a person created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons but rather a creature of nature.  Like them he has no spirit.

Making man's soul the same as the beasts and denying the existence of spirit (God-consciousness) is how naturalistic systems deal with the problem of sin and evil resulting from man's fallen condition.    In other words, denial of his own sins, failings and weaknesses coupled to their transference onto outside sources is how the proud natural man responds to his suffering.

The men listed above had all known the personal, transcendent God but in their pride, resentment and rebellion chose to "do things their own way." But in turning away from the Triune God comes the reversal of conversion in which the partially generated spirit falls back into spiritual sleep or death.   Thus the soul ceases to live from the spirit (God consciousness) and begins to live once more with the senses of the body. The disordered passions thereby revive eventually resulting in the reprobate of Romans 1:28. (St. Tikhon, Works II, as quoted in Political Apocalypse: A Study of Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor, Ellis Sandoz, p. 120)

The Prescription

For those not yet given over by God it is not too late for regeneration of spirit and moral character:

"..... 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, whether through indifference or denial of the Revelation of God in favor of the corrupted wisdom of man and his arcane science, rejects His prescription, thus in his madness plays the part of a fool by destroying him or herself.

The Spirit of Our Age & Antichrist

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.  Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.  In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome .....The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.  He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.  He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.  Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God... The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us....John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, 'This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me...." John 1: 1-17

From the beginning of His earthly ministry, there were those who received Him but many more who would not, and so it will be until the end.   The former are those who recognize and admit their sinful condition while the latter, being full of stubborn pride, will not.

Not even the mighty miracle of creation ex nihilo as described in John’s Gospel and Christ’s own bodily resurrection (Luke 16:31) can persuade those who choose not to believe.

This willful unbelief in Christ had been prophesied long before.  In support of this John cites  Isaiah 53:1-3

Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.”

In order to be received, one must be acceptable.  Christ is rejected by proud, rebellious men along with His offer of salvation because He is not acceptable.  Thus the world’s final word to Him is the cross.

At the root of the rejection of Jesus Christ God incarnate is the rebellious assertion that man has not been created by Him, that he is not dependent upon Him for his own life, thus he is not created in His spiritual image.  He is rather, a conscious product of evolution, thus not dependent upon the living God for he is a man-god who can choose to murder God or to create sock-puppet deities to do his bidding, for he is the master of science, matter, energy, time, being, and the world who through his own knowledge and powers will save himself.

Blaming the living God in three Persons for their suffering, much of it self-inflicted, rebels say to Him, "you are not my father:"

"I am I, I come out of myself, and in choice and action I make myself." (Daniel Bell, quoted by Herbert Schlossberg in "Idols for Destruction," p. 43)

The Spirit of our age is rebellious, defiant man who has lost his faith and joined the burgeoning ranks of natural men who hold that nothing exists but the natural dimension here below.  This spirit of defiance finds completion in the arrival of the Man of Sin, the Satan possessed Antichrist who as the spirit Lucifer is the god of Masonry:

"We worship a God, but it is the God that one adores without superstition.  To you, Sovereign Grand Inspectors General, we say this, that you may repeat it to the Brethren of the 32nd, 31st, and 30th degrees---The Masonic religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine.....Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay (the Triune God), the God of Darkness and Evil." (New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies, William T. Still, p. 124)

The man who receives into himself the whole operation of Satan organizes the political, economic, scientific (mandated universal evolution), and religious cult of Satan, which will be military in character.  The nature of the militaristic cult will be absolute as its' purpose is total seizure of both the world's resources and the whole man---his will, mind, conscience and soul---by taking possession of his body through a Luciferian Initiation.

Discussed with great excitement among the world's powerful occult pantheist New Age Luciferian initiates and gurus, most of them under the influence of spirit guides, this much anticipated event will directly link the initiated masses with the Antichrist, the being described as "the angel of man's evolution" by New Age leader David Spangler.   (Reflections on the Christ,  p.37)

The world will adore and worship the Antichrist, for it is already of one mind with this man, a morally and intellectually perfected natural man, a god-man who will not confess that Christ is the Son of God.

The Man of Sin is acceptable to the world since he is a natural man who is a great biblical exegete, a charismatic politician and a great man of science and evolution who authoritatively affirms beyond doubt that the Genesis account of creation is indeed a book of myths.

Since he plans to tear the heart out of the church (Jesus Christ crucified and risen) and use the Christless church for his worldly enterprise, he also authoritatively affirms every non-Christian claim made by heretics and the apostatizing (i.e., billions of years of evolution,  god is within, prosperity gospel, social gospel, seeker-sensitive).

At these glad tidings, the majority of wavering bishops, cardinals, pastors, reverends, monks and intellectuals are instantly seduced into apostasy.  Like hapless moths to a flame they fly to  him for at long last they have found the man they can adore, a man who loves nobody but himself and whose relationship with Christ is defined,

".... as one of superiority (for he will never) bow before Him like the most stupid of Christians (nor) mutter senselessly....'Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me'....'I, the bright genius, the superman! No, never!... Devoured with envy of Jesus Christ he cries out "He rotted in the tomb, rotted like the lowest..."(Vladimir Soloviev cited in The Wrath of God: The Days of Antichrist, Livio Fanzaga, pp. 39-41)

 Soloviev, a brilliant Russian philosopher and theologian (1853-1900), masterfully portrays a striking contrast between the apostles of Christ and apostles of the Antichrist. The former receive the power of the living God and are full of wisdom, truth, humility, and courage of conviction while the latter receive the power of the devil and are full of  pride, covetousness, burning envy, persistent lies, arrogance, defiance, murderous hate, blasphemy, cursing, resentment, deception and perversion.

Additionally, Solovievs' predictions regarding events in our age (i.e., idolatry, confusion, revolutions, lawlessness, hatred between brethren, division among Christians, apostasy) are astonishing in their prescience, primarily because they not only offer an amazingly accurate glimpse into the mind of the idolatrous man-god who will become the Antichrist but because they also illustrate the real obstacle to salvation, the refusal by proud men to recognize, admit and repent of their sins.

Evolution, the 'One Ring to rule them all/One Ring to find them/One Ring to bring them all/and in the darkness bind them."  (The Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien,1892-1973)

While Soloviev recorded his stunning vision in “A Short Tale of the Antichrist,” Robert Hugh Benson (1871-1914), an English Catholic priest, recorded his prescient vision in "Lord of the World."

Like the Ruling Ring endued with the serpent power of Sauron, the evolutionary thinking that mesmerizes and transfixes Western and American minds, becoming their own 'precious,' prepares people to not only embrace the occult pantheist religion sweeping over the dechristianized West and America but to worship, adore and become bound to Antichrist, for this fascinating human-god (Mr. Felsenburgh) is the first perfected product of nature and evolutionary forces. Mr. Felsenburgh has arisen and he is,

"....the first perfect product of that new cosmopolitan creation to which the world has labored throughout its history..." (p 85)

He fascinates men and they excitedly declare they have seen,

"...the Son of Man,' the 'Savior of the world,' we knew Him in our hearts as soon as we saw Him, as soon as He stood there. It was like a glory around his head (and now we) understand it all... It was He for whom we have waited so long; and He has come, bringing Peace and Goodwill in His hands." (pp. 85, 89)

Christianity failed, it divided people. But now Jehovah is gone. He never existed at all except as a hideous nightmare. Now at long last man can forget Jesus for man’s natural Savior has arisen.  He will liberate them from Hell, merge all religions that all roads lead to the same place and by his Great Work, his Opus Magnum, magically merge all opposites so there will be neither truth or untruth, male or female, good or evil, sodomy or natural relations, for Antichrist has established peace by dealing with all conditions that lead to strife, lust, envy and covetousness.  This he has done by fulfilling the communist ideal in the grounding of all mankind in absolute sameness.  This absolute is an,

"....equality of universal satiety (of sin)" (ibid, p. 140)

At this, all of the world's unrepentant sinners pray to the Antichrist, the beast, and say,

"Who is there like unto the beast."  Rev. 13:7-8

At long last,

"The reign of God has really begun (and) we are all partakers of God" because God is in everything, including all men...."Jehovah has fallen. He is in His grave." In His place is the evolved Son of Man, a god indeed and a man as well..."a god because human and a man because so divine." (ibid, pp. 93, 95)

Soloviev's and Benson’s predictions regarding events in our age are astonishing in their prescience, primarily because they not only offer an amazingly accurate glimpse into the mind of the proud man who will become the Antichrist but they also illustrate the real obstacle to salvation, the refusal by proud, willful men to recognize and admit their sinful condition; as described by both men, the Antichrist and his disciples suffer the same massively inflated pride and envy that transformed Lucifer into the devil.

Atheism: From the Pre-Flood Generations to Our Own

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

In "Against the Heathen," early Church Father Athanasius reveals that pride and haughtiness preceded pre-flood man's fall into idolatry and paganism. A haughty spirit led them to make light of the higher, unchanging things of the personal Creator, and deliberately disregarding what they knew to be true they began to seek in preference things in the lower or natural dimension. Thus they fell into worship of energies, elements, autonomous self, sexual pleasures and acquisition of status and things to the living God and higher things.

The truth as to evil said Athanasius,

"....is that it originates, and resides, in the perverted choice of the darkened soul" which, "materialized by forgetting God" and engrossed in lower things, "makes them into gods," and thereby "descends into a hopeless depth of delusion and superstition," whereby "they ceased to think that anything existed beyond what is seen, or that anything was good save things temporal and bodily; so turning away and forgetting that she was in the image of the good God, she no longer... sees God the Word after whose likeness she is made; but having departed from herself, imagines and feigns what is not (and then) advancing further in evil, they came to celebrate as gods the elements and the principles of which bodies are composed...." (Against the Heathen, New Advent)

Having descended into delusion and superstition they imagined that "all that exists" is the natural dimension — a divine One Substance, watery abyss, chaos, or void, primordial matter, serpent powers, forces, and deterministic laws, all of which they celebrated and attributed miraculous powers to.   

 This is naturalism which is the belief that there is neither living, personal God nor heavenly realm outside of the space-time dimension.

Most nature worshippers resented Christianity.  Thus the advent of Christian theism brought not only accusations of atheism but persecution and sadistic torture.   Followers of the Way, as Christians were first known, were atheists with respect to their committed disbelief in and rejection of naturalism and its’ nature philosophies, Mysteries, natural and occult sciences, dehumanizing evolutionary cosmogonies and nature deities comprising the Greek and Roman pantheons.

Eventually, Western civilization and America rose to heights of unprecedented individual freedom, prosperity, and glory on the wings of Christianity.   But from the Renaissance to our own age a still unfolding and spreading rebellion against the God of the Bible eventuating in the declaration of His death during the Enlightenment has killed the soul of Western and American civilization and reversed the meaning of atheism. 

Today the term atheism once again denotes commitment to a concept of the universe (nature) that is open to anything but the God of the Bible.   Just like the pre-flood generations, modern evolutionary atheists and their pantheist counterparts are naturalists. Therefore, whatever oddities nature brings before us, for example, meaning, laws, dreams, demons, voices speaking into minds, mind itself and extraterrestrials, it must always be nature alone that has somehow produced them.

Only the natural dimension is allowed, thus evolutionary materialist Dr. Scott Todd wrote in the science journal 'Nature:'

"Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such a hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic." (Naturalism in the Light of Reality, Robert Gurney, creation.com, June 14, 2012)

Todd is not a voice of reason.  He is not a seeker of truth but one who conceals truth.   Todd is a prevaricator, an agent of falsehood fueled by will-to-power.

Early conservative intellectual Richard Weaver foresaw this eventuality. In his book, "Ideas Have Consequences," (1945) Weaver writes that 14th century Western man had made an "evil decision" to abandon his belief in the transcendent God and universals and thus the position that "there is a source of truth higher than, and independent of  man..." The consequences of the rejection of "higher things" were catastrophic:

"The denial of everything transcending experience means inevitably...the denial of truth. With the denial of objective truth there is no escape from the relativism of 'man is the measure of all things." (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, pp. 32-33)

The brilliant visionary, Robert Hugh Benson (1871-1914), an English Catholic priest saw through the scientific pretensions of one-dimensional natural science and its' primary doctrine, evolutionary theory. Benson predicted that naturalism and evolutionary thinking would prepare Westerners and Americans not only to embrace but to worship and adore Antichrist, for this human-god (Mr. Felsenburgh) is the first perfected product of nature and evolutionary forces. Mr. Felsenburgh has arisen and he is,

"....the first perfect product of that new cosmopolitan creation to which the world has labored throughout its history..." (p 85)

He transfixes men, and they excitedly declare they have seen,

"...the Son of Man,' the 'Savior of the world,' we knew Him in our hearts as soon as we saw Him, as soon as He stood there. It was like a glory around his head (and now we) understand it all... It was He for whom we have waited so long; and He has come, bringing Peace and Goodwill in His hands." (pp. 85, 89)

Christianity failed. 

It divided people. Original sin made men feel guilty and the Ten Commandments made self-love, covetousness, envy and unrestrained libido into sins. But now Jehovah is finally gone. Liberated men are now free to declare that He never existed at all except as a hideous nightmare. Now at long last man's natural Savior has arisen:

"The reign of God has really begun (and) we are all partakers of God" because God is in everything, including all men...."Jehovah has fallen. He is in His grave." In His place is the evolved Son of Man, a god indeed and a man as well..."a god because human and a man because so divine." (ibid, pp. 93, 95)

The moral of the story is threefold.   First, just because men have declared the death of God does not make it so.  Contrary to the wishful thinking of man, reality is not within the unrestrained imagination of man but outside of and beyond reach of man.   Jehovah God is Ultimate Reality, which means that reality (i.e., heaven, hell) is unaffected by the vain reasoning of man.  Pre-flood generations learned these lessons the hard way. And finally, the man who refuses to submit to his Creator and willingly rejects His offer of salvation by grace will submit to the devil.

The Snakes Lie and Darwinism

The idea that man can become God was first whispered in Eve’s ear by the snake.  In “Ancient Paganism: The Sorcery of Fallen Angels” Ken Johnson, Th.D,  writes that the snake (Lucifer) persuaded pre-flood people to believe that the original Creator God did not exist since He had emptied Himself into creation (pantheism).  According to the snake, since all that actually exists is a creative animated God-force it is possible for each person to evolve into god since the god-energy is man’s mind or unconscious:

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

 In the words of Emergent Church leader Rob Bell, evolution is an energy that everything---including man---is plugged into.  Evolution is a,

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

Pre-flood people held very similar views to those espoused by Peck and Bell.  This is why early Church Father Tertullian describes both Greek pagans, who taught that by magic they would evolve into demons (highly evolved spirits of people who lived during the Golden Age) after death and pre-flood people as idolaters rather than atheists:

“….by magic, which is indeed only a second idolatry, wherein they pretend that after death they become demons, just as they were supposed in the first and literal idolatry to become gods.” Tertullian Treatise on the soul 57 (emphasis added)

 We learn in the Ancient Book of Jasher, a 3,000 year old non-inspired history referenced in Joshua 10:13; 2 Sam. 1:18, and 2 Tim. 3:8, that the idea that God does not exist was Lucifer’s original lie:

And they called to Noah, saying, Open for us that we may come to thee in the ark---and wherefore shall we die?  And Noah, with a loud voice, answered them….saying, Have you not all rebelled against the Lord, and said that he does not exist?” Jasher 6:18-19 (emphasis added)

Pre-flood people were idolaters.  They preferred ‘self’ to God and brethren.  They willfully chose to believe that the Creator God does not exist and that by various magic rituals which they had learned from the Watchers (Angels) they would change (evolve) into gods:

And Cainan…went to seek for himself a place where he might seize for himself a city.  And he found a writing which former generations had carved on the rock, and he read what was thereon, and he transcribed it and sinned owing to it; for it contained the teaching of the Watchers….And he wrote it down and said nothing regarding it; for he was afraid to speak to Noah about it lest he should be angry with him on account of it.” (Jubilees 8: 1-5, cited in Ancient Paganism: The Sorcery of the Fallen Angels, Ken Johnson, Th.D., p. 36, emphasis added)

God destroyed that world with a flood.  Only Noah and his family were saved, but whereas Noah re-established the worship of the one true God, in the post-flood world, his son Ham and his sons quickly fell back into pagan idolatry, the lie that man will change into god.  

Church Father Clement writes that it was Ham who rediscovered and resurrected pre-flood teachings from the Watchers:

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

The theme which unites pre-flood paganism to ancient Sumeria (Babylonia) and modern evolutionary movements--- Darwinian humanism,  Teilhard's Hindu pantheist system, Big Bang assumptions, Luciferian Theosophy, liberal pantheist theology, occult pantheist New Age mysticism, and America's slide into apostasy are pride, defiance, and the myth of evolution.

In "Belief in God, Heaven and Miracles Down; Belief in Evolution Up," Christian Post reporter Jeff Schapiro reveals that the percentage of Americans who believe in God, heaven and miracles decreased in the last several years, according to poll results released Monday, while the percentage of people who believe in Darwin's theory of evolution is on the rise:

"A new Harris Poll found that nearly three-quarters (74 percent) of American adults believe in God, though that number is down from 2005, 2007 and 2009, when 82 percent believed in Him. Sixty-eight percent of people now say they are absolutely or somewhat certain God exists, though that number has decreased by 11 percentage points since 2003."  (christianpost.com, Dec. 19, 2013)

 Belief in the theory of evolution, on the other hand,

 "...has risen from 42 percent to 47 percent in the last eight years. Since 2003, the percentage of adults who say there is no God has increased from nine percent to 16 percent, and uncertainty as to whether there is a God has risen from 12 percent to 16 percent."

 In keeping with His Gospel, our Lord not only announced it but foretold the trials and tribulations that would encompass His followers.

The most lethal in our age is the spirit of rebellion that dresses self-worship and evolutionary nature religions in Christian clothing in an attempt to overhaul the Christian faith.

 

In "Apostasy in America: An Overview of Warning Signs in Our Time," Dr. Peter Jones, Professor of Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in California writes that in order for the,

"...pagan lie to succeed, it needs to look as much like the truth as it can. Hence the imperious necessity in the malevolent eschatology of spiritual darkness for the appearance of a new hybrid – 'Christian' paganism." (Jesus and the Den of Thieves, SCP Journal, Vol. 20:3-4, 1996, p. 15)

 The foundation of Christian paganism is Darwinism.  The essence of Darwinism constituting its’ particular nature is neo-pagan naturalism.   Naturalism advocates a phony ‘truth claim’ positing the nonexistence of the one God in three Persons, Heaven, hell, man as God's spiritual image-bearer, angels, demons, immutable truth, moral law, meaning, and purpose resulting in human beings who are no longer Imago Dei but rather conscious products of evolution, mere descendants of lower creatures: 

Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin’s theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma.” (Anton Pannekoek, ‘Marxism and Darwinism,” translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the internet by Jon Muller, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Co,)

Despite claims of evolutionary theologians to the contrary, Darwinism  "destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma," so whether they know it or not, Christians who embrace Darwinism unwittingly deny the deity of Jesus Christ since if Darwinism is true then our Savior is not the Second Person of the Trinity, God Incarnate, the Word Who created ex nihilo but rather a conscious product of evolution (1 John 2:22). 

The Darwinian wrecking-ball does not stop there. 

If Darwinism is true, there was no fall, so Lucifer is not Satan, there is no Original Sin, no hell, no Judgment, and since men are not sinners in need of a Savior, there is no reason why the very worst of our kind need fear doing whatever they want to do, no matter how evil, while in this world.

If Darwinism is true and Jesus is a conscious product of evolution, then there was neither Incarnation nor Resurrection, thus no "new heaven, and a new earth'" where God "shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, neither crying, neither...pain: for the first things are passed." (Rev. 21: 1, 4)

In conclusion, if Darwinism is true, the one God in three Persons does not exist since He and His Revealed Word are myths invented by stone-age hominids,  all of which makes the faithful the most miserable people of all, for they are left with nothing.

“In the beginning was the Word….”

 J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterpiece, the “Silmarillion” is the book of beginnings, the all-important Genesis account that sets the stage for all that follows in the towers trilogy:

 "There was Eru, the One, who in Arda is called Iluvatar; and he made first the Ainur, the Holy Ones, that were the offspring of his thought, and they were with him before aught else was made."  (p. 15)

 Just as the Genesis account opens with creation ex nihilo, so does Tolkien’s account. In the beginning was Illuvatar, the Word who was, is, and always will be:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God, and there was nothing made that was not made by Him.”

Iluvatar ‘thought,’ then he "sang living words," according to both Tolkien and CS Lewis in his "Magicians Nephew." As Iluvatar sings He instantaneously creates the things of His thought, thus all things are created in a precise order and after their own kind in six instantaneous acts of creation.

Returning to Genesis, we are told that the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. God Incarnate is Jesus Christ, God made flesh, the fulfillment and perfection of all prophecy from the very beginning, starting with Adam and Eve who received the knowledge of a coming Redeemer as well as the knowledge that the world would be destroyed two times, once by water, once by fire. Thus Jesus Christ in His office as prophet is the Angel of Prophecy who spoke to Moses in the desert, revealing to him the Genesis account ex nihilo.

 Therefore, to embrace Darwinism is to logically deny all of the aforementioned as well as the deity of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, hence,

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

 To reject the deity of Jesus is to deny man’s dire need of our Savior, the Physician of our souls. All who deny the deity of Jesus Christ deny the Physician and are of the spirit of antichrist, thus they deny His prescription and assign themselves to outer darkness.

The Antichrist

 Vladimir Soloviev (1850-1900) was a brilliant Russian philosopher and theologian. In a gripping novel, “A Short Tale of the Antichrist” Soloviev offers both an amazingly accurate glimpse into the mind of the super-man who will become the Antichrist as well as illustrating the real obstacle to salvation, the refusal by proud, willful men to recognize and admit to their sinful condition.

Prior to his transformation by Satan, Soloviev describes the super-man as outwardly just, but within he is full of pride and is morally reprehensible:

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

 As the super-mans’ spiritual fall progresses, or evolves downward, instead of the former cold rational respect for Jesus Christ God Incarnate:

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

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

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

 Soloviev masterfully portrays a striking contrast between the apostles of Christ and the Antichrist. The former receive the power of the living Word and are full of wisdom, virtue, truth, and courage while the latter receives the power of the devil and are full of nihilistic pride, contention, ingratitude, lies, burning envy, murderous hate, blasphemy, cursing, resentment, deception, covetousness, and perversion.

 The Antichrist, as described by Soloviev, suffers the same massively inflated pride and envy that transformed Lucifer into the devil. This same pride and envy animated Cain, Judas, Nimrod, the pantheist sorcerer Hegel, the occult Luciferian Illuminati who planned and instigated the bloody French Revolution; Madame Blavatsky, Karl Marx, Nietzsche, Lenin, Stalin, Teilhard de Chardin, the West’s “God is dead” theologians, the Jesus Seminar gnostics and too many others to be named.

 In the end, hell is the choice of proud, willful men, anti-christs who refuse to recognize and admit to their sinful condition. In affirmation, CS Lewis writes:

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

Beware Your Choices: Heaven is Real. So is the Hell Chosen by Marx

Over on the Conservative website Free Republic, the unrelenting war mounted by evolutionary atheists and their 'new' Christian counterparts against the essay "Falling Stars, Damnable Heresy, and the Spirit of Evolution" continues unabated and has caused the thread to top 1300 posts.

Evolutionary atheists and their 'new' Christian counterparts are of that 'new' race of evolved men long foretold and longed for by modernists such as Nietzsche, Marxist Communists, Fascists, utopianists and various humanists.   What is the New Man? Whereas the Apostle Paul referred collectively to the fallen Old Man of humanity and a resurrected New Man following Jesus, modernism's New Man is 'new' by virtue of his independence from the Triune God.   The New Man is not Imago Dei but rather the conscious product of evolution.  He is an evolving spirit who is his own reference point, meaning there is no mind, no authority, no meaning higher than his own.

New Men, whether 'Christian' or secular, willfully oppose their own word against the Word of God and reject the miraculous, historical and literal elements of the Bible, particularly of Genesis, in favor of natural science and evolution.  They persuasively argue that this scientifically enlightened course of action is entirely compatible with belief in God, though their God is nothing more than a man-controlled deity that jump-starts the Big Bang in order to set evolution in motion.

Despite prophetic warnings, “new” Christian theologians deform and twist the Scriptures to make them fit their own opinions and lack of faith, hoping thereby to give a pseudo-biblical authority to their evolutionary beliefs rather than allowing the Lord to say what He means:

Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it” (Deuteronomy 4:2).

Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar” (Proverbs 30:6).

"If any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life” (Revelation 22:19).

From past to present such practices have generated a plethora of heresies and Gnostic cults. This was in essence Christ’s view of the Pharisees:

In vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men” (Matthew 15:9).

Despite the efforts of one sophistical 'new' Christian to disguise his atheism, arrogance and hostility behind a friendly smiley-faced mask, rather than opaque his mask is porous, meaning that telling statements keep slipping through.   For example:

 The issue here is whether any such “special revelation” qualifies as “natural science”?

 The real issue, the truth of the matter not-so-deftly implied by this example of arrogant, clumsy sophistry is that, like a long line of evolutionary atheists before him, the 'new' Christian is in rebellion against the God of Revelation as He revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ:

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

It is the living, personal God Who revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ that 'new' Christians and their secular counterparts are in rebellion against.   A nonliving, mindless God-force without Will that men can mold, shape, manage and speak for is just fine, as is a mortal Christ, a mere man who, like the New Man, is the conscious product of evolution.

 The truth is that evolutionary atheists and their 'new' Christian counterparts are not New Men but fallen Old Men, thus they prefer the word of sinful men over the Revelation of God and are the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from the beginning,

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

Wiker writes that as far back as the Renaissance the strong impulse to throw off the restraints of the personal God and Christianity was already at work in certain Churchmen and intellectuals, hence their eventual embrace of materialism (i.e., natural science,  naturalism, Darwinism, evolutionary biology, empiricism, methodological naturalism, reductionism):

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

 Contemporary New Men are rebels against the living, personal God of Revelation and of a mind with demonized antitheists such as Karl Marx and other revolutionaries who, though not the devil, did his work for him.

Marx, the father of the Communist Manifesto, declared that his war is against God and the world created by Him.  In his poem, “The Pale Maiden” he admits the existence of the God of Revelation, the existence of heaven, that he is Imago Dei, and further, that he knows hell exists but that eternal damnation is his willful choice:

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

 Marx's revolutionary comrade, Mikhail Bakunin, admits he is a Satanist:

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

 A Communist newspaper makes clear that Satanists are trying to snatch believers from God:

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

 The Satanic revolt, like supernatural Christian faith, is a movement of spirit but having its taproot and energy in Satan, the father of pride, envy and lies, the 'god' of this world and inventor of evolutionary cosmogonies, naturalism, materialism, 'new' Christianity, and heresy. He is the author of rebellion, and the revelator of secrets contrived to damn unto hell.

 Satanic revolt is war against the supernatural Trinity...the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, which in Bakunin’s words are the “cursed and fatal principle of authority.”

 Thus it proclaims the reign of negation: of God’s Revelation, creation ex nihilo, miracles, the divinity of Christ, immutable Truth, Moral Law, Imago Dei, Heaven, angels, the devil, demons and hell.

 The sentiment of the revolt is Satanic pride:

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

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

By his unintended confession, the 'new' Christian admits that he prefers the damning errors, heresy and sophistry of evolutionary thinking to what he derisively describes as the "so-called" Revelation of God and His will for men. This is why, in a further abuse of will, he insists on God’s Revelation to man being subordinate to natural science:

“The issue here is whether any such “special revelation” qualifies as “natural science”? The answer is: obviously not, and that is pretty much the only major point I’ve been hoping to make.”

From the time of Adam and Eve, proud, self-centered, rebellious men have been abusing the gift of will to choose self-gratification, service to themselves and whatever it is they want.   But beware your choice, your abuse of will, for at some unknown, unperceived moment it will become eternal. Heaven is real. So is the hell chosen by Marx.

How and Why Darwinism Paves the Way for Totalitarianism

In "Ruling class tramples consent of the governed," Christopher Adamo reports on the latest usurpation of power by our arrogant left-right ruling class. On November 5, Mike Pantelides became the first Republican Mayor elected since 1997 in Annapolis,

“…the very "blue" capital of the very "blue" state of Maryland. Like so much of the state, Annapolis has been under the uncontested control of Democrats for almost two decades. Nevertheless, the majority of voters had officially shown their preference for Pantelides, who should then be able to fulfill the purposes for which he was elected.” (Adamo, Renew America, Nov. 14, 2013)

 After sixteen years of unchallenged liberal dominance the Democrat City Council is advancing a measure that will overthrow the will of the people by stripping Pantelides of his official duties and authority, leaving him in an office that is ceremonial and inconsequential. In typical "Ruling Class" fashion,

Democrat Alderman Ross Arnett has attempted to rationalize the move on the grounds that overruling the will of the voters would "stabilize" management of the city. With glaring arrogance, Arnett essentially contends that the ability of the common people to determine how they will be represented by public office holders constitutes an annoyance to those in power who know better how to direct the affairs of the lowly masses. As such it must simply be overridden, and the voices of "We the People" swatted away like so many flies.”   

Given that our nation’s Founders did not shy away from the fact of human sinfulness, they would be dismayed but not shocked by the evidence of America’s overwhelming moral corruption, ignorance, dissolution and usurpation of power by America’s self-styled ‘new’ aristocracy, the Ruling Class. 

Whether the Founders were individually Christian or not, there was among them a general Christian consensus that finds some of its greatest expression in the scholarly works of Samuel Rutherford in his “Lex Rex” (1644) and in the writings of the 18th century jurist William Blackstone.

Rutherford reasoned that since all men are sinners, no man---whether king, prime minister or president (or ruling class) ---is superior to any other man.  This meant that no man is above the law; all are subject to the law without exception, thus all men must recognize that they are under the transcendent Law of God.  

Furthermore, as all men are created equal in the eyes of God, then worth, dignity and the right to life are conferred upon each human being at creation.  Thus all men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights from Him which no man can rightfully take away.

Blackstone greatly influenced early American understanding of God, the Bible and nature.  He taught that since the living, personal God is the omnipotent Creator who works and governs the affairs of men then all law should be consistent with His Revelation in the Bible.  No law should be passed that is contrary to the higher law of God.    

 In keeping with the Christian consensus, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin connected virtue and self-control with individual freedom and corruption and lack of self-control with anarchy and authoritarianism:

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

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

Today there is little virtue left in America as our age is an age of self-worship and defiance against God issuing into debauchery, sodomy, promiscuousness, lawlessness, pathological lying, heresy, open apostasy and occult oppression.

More than eighty years ago, America began falling away from its' founding Biblical-based worldview into what President Calvin Coolidge identified as "pagan materialism" (i.e., naturalism, evolutionary atheism, secular humanism, liberalism).

Fearing for the future of our Constitutional Republic he said in a speech delivered on the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, July 5, 1926:

"Democracy is Christ's government in church and state…” "Here was the doctrine of equality, popular sovereignty, and the substance of the theory of inalienable rights....When we take all these circumstances into consideration, it is but natural that the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence should open with a reference to Nature's God and should close...with an appeal to the Supreme Judge of the world and an assertion of a firm reliance on Divine Providence...In its main feature the Declaration of Independence is a great spiritual document. Equality, liberty, popular sovereignty, the rights of man — these are not elements which we can see and touch. They are ideals. They have their source and roots in the religious convictions. They belong to the unseen world. "(Backfired: A Nation Born for Religious Tolerance No Longer Tolerates Religion, William J. Federer, pp. 270-271)

Fifty-one years later, British journalist William Rees-Mogg saw that the West had indeed lost its faith, and like a fish out of water or a drowning man was,

"...desperately thrashing around for lack of oxygen. Since the time of Christ there has been no period in which there has been the same feeling of...spiritual impoverishment." (Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture, Herbert Schlossberg, p. 2)

Today America resembles a spiritually-impoverished, storm-tossed dark ocean punctuated here and there by a few islands of light where faith in our Creator still exists.   But for the rest, God does not exist, and where He does not exist, truth and higher law do not exist. When men are no longer under the Law of God then man is the measure of all things, thus pathological lying, deception, arbitrary laws, power-struggles, viciousness, fear and oppression result. 

Either God is the Lawgiver or America’s arrogant left-right, morally corrupt Ruling Class and men and women like Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, Hitler, Lenin and Stalin are.  Either God is Supreme or the corrupt authoritarian ‘state’ is supreme.  

R.J. Rushdoony astutely observed that behind every system of broken law there is a god:

If the source of law is the individual, then the individual is the god of that system….if source of law is our court then the court is our god.  If there is no higher law beyond man, then man is his own god…When you choose your authority, you choose your god, and when you look for your law, there is your god.” (When A Nation Forgets God, Erwin Lutzer, p. 59)

Dr. Lutzer writes that the strong influence of Christianity throughout our government, education, media, and American law has been undermined by two very powerful, highly destructive influences. 

First there is evolution, Darwinism in particular.

Darwinism has destroyed the foundations of Christianity, thus our Constitutional Republic, as well as man's soul/spirit, thereby reducing "we the people" to a chance products of matter in motion:

"Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma." (Anton Pannekoek, "Marxism and Darwinism," translated by Nathan Weiser. Transcribed for the Internet by Jon Muller, Chicago, Charles H. Kerr & Company Co-operative Copyright, 1912 by Charles H. Kerr & Company)

By 1870 Christopher Langdell, dean of Harvard School of Law was teaching that the principles of evolution must be applied to the written opinion of judges.  Lutzer points out that the conclusion was inescapable:

Law was not what the Constitution said it was but what judges said it was.  In other words, there was no longer an objective base; the absolutes dissolved along with the supposed demise of the Creator.” (pp. 65-66)

Second, liberal theology has stripped the Bible of its miraculous, historical and literal elements, thereby allowing it to be considered as one book among many.  No longer is it generally believed that the Bible, especially the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, is the objective revelation of God.   In the end, theological liberalism, a form of pantheism, is nothing more than atheist humanism in theological dress. (ibid, p. 67)

Today America’s corrupt, power-hungry, self-worshipping ruling class has nearly succeeded in leveraging itself into the position of supreme law-givers and mind-and-conscience shapers.   Like Marx, Lenin, Stalin, and Hitler, they are atheists who embrace neo-pagan Darwinism or perhaps Teilhard's pantheist conception, thus they view “we the people” as the chance product of matter in motion; evolved bags of worthless chemicals destined to be recycled as fertilizer.   Furthermore, many of them favor Agenda 21, which is totalitarian socialism and/or communism in another dress.

America’s ruling class has not as yet attained the total power Lenin, Trotsky, Stalin and Hitler acquired enabling them to arbitrarily create new laws that deprived millions of people of their status as persons.  With the declaration that they were no longer human but useless eaters, weeds, pond scum, or dinosaurs who should have died out long ago, industrial killing machines were set in motion that eventually consumed in excess of 160,000,000 men, women and children.

Today, neo-pagan Darwinian theory as 'evolutionary fact' has finally reached saturation point in American government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, the public arena and increasingly within the whole body of the Church.  This is why apostasy, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, mass murder, decadence, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.

 America has long been prepared for what Lutzer warns is now coming toward us rather quickly.  Pressure to bow to Caesar will come through the Supreme Court and lower courts whereby America’s ruling class will further its stranglehold over our nation by creating laws similar to those of the Nazis and Communists.  Lutzer envisions 13 laws:

a. Laws that criminalize all public expressions of religion---especially Christianity.  This could include severe penalties for those who pray at public events.  All expressions of religion in public places will be strictly forbidden.  No Bible on a desk, no Christian poster or cross allowed in public places.

b. All public crosses will be removed; no memorial in the shape of a cross is permitted.

c. Hate crime laws with their assertion that ‘hate speech’ is verbal violence will make criticism of homosexuals or Muslims punishable, even if the remarks are made in a church or synagogue.  This includes readings from the Bible.  Crimes against homosexuals will be deemed worthy of greater punishment than crimes against others.

d. Schools will legally punish children who do not participate in the celebration of the homosexual lobby and its agenda

e. Partial birth abortion and euthanasia will be protected by the Constitution

f. Abortion will be an absolute right.  Parents who oppose their child’s choice to have an abortion will be deemed abusive and liable to have their children removed from their home.

g. Same-sex marriage will become an inherent right protected by the Constitution.  No discrimination will be allowed between homosexual and heterosexual marriages, in organizations such as the Boy Scouts or in the teaching of homosexuality to school children.

h. Churches cannot discriminate against homosexuals in their hiring practices for youth workers, associate pastors, worship leaders, etc.

i.  Schools will teach homosexuality beginning in the 1st grade and parents have no right to withdraw their children from these classes.

j. Churches that fail to marry homosexuals will lose their tax exempt status.

k. Homeschooling will be unconstitutional unless curriculum is approved by the state board and is tested by school authorities.  Approved curriculum includes mandatory teachings about evolution, homosexuality, etc.

l. The ‘Fairness Doctrine’ is implemented so that whenever a controversial issue like Jesus is the only way to God, equal time will be given to a different point of view.  This in effect puts an end to Christian radio as we know it.

m. Bible studies with more than ten people attending cannot be held in homes without a religious permit furnished by the city/county where the meetings are held.

Ultimately, America is being prepared by New Age Revolutionaries to submit to a top-down spiritually pantheist world order dominated by a global occult aristocracy who believe they are evolving into gods.  Before it can come into existence, there must be a politically correct philosophy of 'new' thought and a philosophy of pantheist-based natural religion and natural science and evolution to usher in the coming political, social, legal and educational aspects of the new order since Luciferian New Age religion is a politically communist, ecologically 'sustainable,' sexually androgynous way of living.

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

The Revolution’s primary goals are:

a. Destruction of the Christian-based foundation of Western and American civilization;

b. Dissolution of legal government;

c. Destruction of sovereignty and patriotism;

d. Demoralizing, atheitizing (primarily through teaching of Darwinism), and bringing the people of the United States into slavery via liberated sin nature and penury via graduated income taxes, property taxes, inheritance taxes, sales taxes, a massive welfare state and now socialized healthcare;

e. The abolition of God-given right to life via reproductive rights (abortion) and euthanasia and of private property via onerous building codes, zoning regulations and restrictions and by taxing property out of existence and targeting inheritance with bigger and bigger taxes.

f. Destruction of the traditional monogamous family unit via divorce, co-habitation, alternative lifestyles, abortion, pornography, hedonism and homosexuality.

Not surprisingly, when Antichrist arises he will create yet more laws, laws that will indict those who do not worship him.  Like Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, and America’s Ruling Class, he will begin with lies, and then make laws, and finally be worshipped as Lord:

His control will be expanded both in numbers and in controlling details of ordinary living.  He will be another Hitler, more powerful, more believable, more blasphemous, more cruel.” (Erwin Lutzer, p. 73)

But those who persevere in faith to Jesus Christ will be rewarded with eternal joy unspeakable in Paradise.

From Pre-flood Paganism to Modern Evolutionary Paganism

In 1907 Pope Pius X declared Modernism and its' principle doctrine evolution as heresies in his Encyclical, Pascendi Dominici Gregis. The Pope observed that according to the law of evolution everything is subject to change,

“…. and must in fact be changed (for to) the laws of evolution everything is subject ….”  Modernists claim that, “… dogma, Church, worship, the Books we revere as sacred, even faith itself affirmed that our most holy religion, in the man Christ as in us, emanated from nature spontaneously and of itself. Nothing assuredly could be more utterly destructive of the whole supernatural order.

Even our Lord Jesus Christ God incarnate, must be subject to the laws of evolution:

“…..then Christ, according to what they call His real history, was not God and never did anything divine, and that as man He did and said only what they, judging from the time in which He lived, consider that He ought to have said or done.” (PASCENDI DOMINICI GREGIS ON THE DOCTRINE OF THE MODERNISTS, ENCYCLICAL OF POPE PIUS X, SEPTEMBER 8, 1907)

Modernism and its’ primary doctrine evolution appeared in Western history in the heart of Christendom during the Renaissance. The Renaissance had reawakened a magical pagan view of the world closely connected with pagan Gnostic sectarianism, Greek Atomism (materialism) and its’ spiritualized counterpart, Eastern pantheism, as well as Hermetic magic and alchemical-scientism.  Along with Eastern pantheism there was spiritual evolution, reincarnation, karma and occultism.   

In this light Modernism represents man’s apostasy---his insurrection against and rejection of Jehovah God, His Revealed Word, Moral Law and offer of salvation in favor of nature worship, self-realization and self-salvation through control of the seething powers of evolution. 

For example, Masonry initiate and occult magician Manly Hall says that when a Mason (evolutionary materialist) learns how to properly channel the evolutionary power of the serpent he has learned the mystery of his Craft that allows him to consciously evolve upward:

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

 It is possible for evolutionary pagans to consciously evolve upward because Jehovah God does not really exist but is rather a divine force within all of creation, therefore God is man’s unconscious:

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

Early on C.S. Lewis understood that mystical pantheism (cosmic humanism) and atheist materialism (secular humanism) were merely two sides of the same revival of pagan monism. Thus he argued in “The Abolition of Man” (1947) that Cosmic and Secular Humanism are not enemies in principle but rather cooperating philosophies united in rebellion against the Creator God who exists outside of the time-space universe, His Revelation to mankind, creation ex nihilo, Christian theism, and Christian-based civilization.

Nature or matter worship, evolutionary conceptions, subjectivism unite both systems. Another very important way in which both philosophies are united is in the idea of humanity as deity. Though this idea is seldom avowed openly, it is expressed,

"....by ascribing to man attributes of God: sovereignty (or autonomy), complete rationality, and moral perfection." (Idols for Destruction, Herbert Schlossberg, p. 42)

The idea that man can become God was first whispered in Eve’s ear by the snake and in the original pre-flood paganism people believed that after death they would magically change into a god.  Church Father Tertullian comments:

“….by magic, which is indeed only a second idolatry, wherein they pretend that after death they become demons, just as they were supposed in the first and literal idolatry to become gods.” Tertullian Treatise on the soul 57 (emphasis added)

In “Ancient Paganism: The Sorcery of Fallen Angels” Ken Johnson writes that Lucifer persuaded pre-flood people to believe that the original Creator God did not exist.  All that had actually existed was a creative force that had emptied itself into creation making it possible for each person to evolve into god.    This is the seedbed out of which eventually bloomed in the post-flood world the pagan lie (Romans 1:25), or antithesis of the Revealed Word and after passage of time, Modernism:

With minor variations, the antithesis of the Revealed Word remains substantially unchanged from what it was in Paul's time:

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

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

We learn in the Ancient Book of Jasher, a 3,000 year old non-inspired history referenced in Joshua 10:13; 2 Sam. 1:18, and 2 Tim. 3:8, that the idea that God does not exist was Lucifer’s original lie:

And they called to Noah, saying, Open for us that we may come to thee in the ark---and wherefore shall we die?  And Noah, with a loud voice, answered them….saying, Have you not all rebelled against the Lord, and said that he does not exist?” Jasher 6:18-19 (emphasis added)

Like today’s evolutionary humanists, pre-flood people were not atheists but idolaters, meaning they preferred ‘self’ to God and brethren.  They willfully chose to believe that the Creator God does not exist and that by various magic rituals which they had learned from the Watchers (Angels) they would change (evolve) into gods:

And Cainan….went to seek for himself a place where he might seize for himself a city.  And he found a writing which former generations had carved on the rock, and he read what was thereon, and he transcribed it and sinned owing to it; for it contained the teaching of the Watchers….And he wrote it down and said nothing regarding it; for he was afraid to speak to Noah about it lest he should be angry with him on account of it.” (Jubilees 8: 1-5, cited in Ancient Paganism: The Sorcery of the Fallen Angels, Ken Johnson, Th.D., p. 36, emphasis added)

From early Church Father Clement we learn that by the 14th generation pre-flood Canaanites were not only using blood sacrifices but had erected an altar to demons:

“In the twelfth generation…they received a commandment (from God) that they should not taste blood, for on account of this also the deluge had been sent….In the fourteenth generation one of the cursed progeny (Canaanites) first erected an altar to demons, for the purpose of magical arts, and offered their blood sacrifices.”  Recognitions of Clement 1:30  

God destroyed that world with a flood.  Only Noah and his family were saved, but whereas Noah established the worship of God, his son Ham and his sons quickly fell back into pagan idolatry (the lie that man will change into god), sorcery, and blood sacrifices.

 More than two thousand years ago, our Lord Jesus Christ said something mysterious to the church in Pergamos,

I know….where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is.” (Rev. 2:13)

The Pergamos altar of Zeus had apparently become the focus of the blood-stained Satanist pagan cult of that time.    In 1944 German archaeologists excavated it and took it to the Nazi capital during Hitler’s blood-stained pagan Satanist regime.  But then, as the Svenska Dagbladet (Stockholm) reported in 1927, after the conquest of Berlin the Soviet army transported the altar of Satan to the blood-stained Soviet Empire, the seat of pagan dialectical materialism, or scientific socialism.

Their war was against God and the world created by Him, as Karl Marx, father of the Communist Manifesto had declared some years before. In his poem, "The Pale Maiden" he admits that he has willfully opted for Hell:

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

Marx’s anarchist comrade openly celebrates Satan:

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

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

In “Marx & Satan” Richard Wurmbrand reveals that not only was Lenin’s mausoleum modeled after the altar of Satan but that top “echelons of the Soviet hierarchy practiced Satanist rituals.” (p. 111)

Why did Jesus single out the Pergamos altar?  His words said Richard Wurmbrand, were prophetic. Two thousand years before the insurrection against Jehovah God that began during the Renaissance leading to a return to paganism eventuating in the proclamation of the death of God and cataclysmic eruptions of fire, brimstone and rivers of blood during the 20th century, in his revelation to St. John, Jesus was speaking about the two godless evolutionary pagan regimes, Nazism and Marxist Communism that were the Satanic engines of all of this evil. Not only did both regimes honor the altar of Satan but together spilled the blood of in excess of 160,000,000 men, woman and children.

It is also worth noting that in the autumn of 1882, Friedrich Nietzsche, the apostate Christian philosopher who called himself the antichrist, experienced the second of his mystical encounters with a spirit named Zarathustra.  Speaking through Nietzsche’s writings done by way of automatic writing, Zarathustra said that because men had ‘killed’ Jehovah during the 19th century there would follow two terrible consequences beginning in the 20th century (Romans 1:18). 

First, the 20th century would become one of the most evil centuries in history, and second, a universal madness (moral imbecility/reprobation) would break out and turn the once glorious but now apostate Western and American civilizations upside-down.

As in the days of Noah, modern Westerners and Americans, including large numbers of clergy are increasingly turning their backs on Jehovah God in favor of evolutionary paganism and it's Christianized counterparts, evolutionary theism and progressive creationism.  Meanwhile, among the upper global echelons of the occult New Age pagan hierarchy men in their madness not only celebrate Lucifer as the angel of evolution but actively seek the Luciferian initiation.

Evolutionary Humanism: the Religion of Antichrist and Man as God

“There is no place in the Humanist worldview for either immortality or God in the valid meanings of those terms. Humanism contends that instead of the gods creating the cosmos, the cosmos, in the individualized form of human beings giving rein to their imagination, created the gods.     Corliss Lamont, "The Philosophy of Humanism" 1982

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

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

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

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

"...as saviors of the planet and as shapers of mankind in their own image," observes Angelo M. Codevilla in his insightful essay, "The Ruling Class: How They Corrupted America and What We Can Do about It." (p. xix)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Since the end of WW II, secular evolutionary humanism has been bleeding over into its' pantheist counterpart (Cosmic Humanism).  Brooks Alexander observes that because secular humanism and pantheist humanism share evolution in common and are from the same root they tend to cross-pollinate and mingle,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“…the Savior of the world, we knew Him in our hearts as soon as we saw Him, as soon as He stood there.  It was like a glory around his head (and now we) understand it all…It was He for whom we have waited so long; and He has come, bringing Peace and Goodwill in His hands.” (pp. 85, 89)

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

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

Nihilism and Satanic Inversion: America's 'New' Reality of Non-self and Madness

In the wake of the insurrection against the living, personal God of Revelation that began during the Renaissance eventuating in the proclamation of the death of God and cataclysmic eruptions of fire, brimstone and rivers of blood during the 20th century, ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn said the world had never before known,

"...godlessness as organized, militarized, and tenaciously malevolent as that practiced by Marxism. Within the philosophical system of Marx and Lenin, and at the heart of their psychology, hatred of God is the principal driving force, more fundamental than all their political and economic pretensions. Militant atheism is not merely incidental or marginal to Communist policy; it is not a side effect, but the central pivot.” (goodreads.com)

In his analysis of Marxist Communism and its’ alter ego, scientific materialism, Frank Meyers, an early conservative intellectual concluded that Communism is the state form,

 “….taken by a materialist faith determined to rule the world.”  Godless Communism 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 in America, George H. Nash, pp. 251-252)

Both scientific evolutionary materialism and its new age evolutionary pantheist counterpart belong to the family of ‘new’ pagan or modern naturalism.  Modern naturalism refers to a one-dimensional view of reality grounded in a monist pagan philosophy holding that only void, matter and evolutionary (developmental and change-making) energies exist.  Therefore void, matter and energy are the Ultimate One Substance of which the universe consists and with which all life is in continuity, thus “all is one” and “everything is perpetually evolving and ascending.”  

The main difference between these two views resides in whether matter is thought to be physical (i.e., Greek Atomism) or spiritual (Hinduism). However, both views share in common the following:

Hatred of the supernatural God of Revelation and of man as His spiritual image-bearer

One dimensional views of reality

An inverted account of  origins and history lending itself to the notion that since there was no fall then Lucifer is not the devil and men are not sinful but rather evolving into gods

Scientific materialism or its’ New Age spiritual science counterpart

Evolutionary conceptions.  These serve two main functions. First, as a mechanical process of development and second, as a mechanism for purification of matter

The nihilism of Buddha  

Jesus Christ to Buddha,

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

Life is only with the living God of Revelation, the creator and upholder of the life and being (soul/spirit) of men.  But if He does not exist, it logically follows that there is no ultimate source for life, conscious being, meaning and purpose; or for the sanctity of human life, worth, dignity, individual liberty and personal property.  Without God the Father Almighty unalienable (God given) human rights are as meaningless as America’s founding documents have become in our Godless pagan society. 

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

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

Naturalism: the Antithesis

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

According to this view, man faces both unseen and seen and interprets truth against these two interfacing halves of reality.  Thus Paul declares that as men live out their lives they are spectacles, “unto the world, and to angels and men.” (1 Cor. 4:9) 

In opposition to modern naturalism’s one dimensional view, Paul affirms that total reality consists of two halves, hence this earth (the seen) is really a theater and men are actors on its stage observed not only by other men (the seen) but by the Spirit of God and angels (the unseen).   

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

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

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987) was a highly respected German minister who pastored, counseled and delivered in excess of twenty thousand people suffering from demonic subjection. According to Koch, demonic subjection is an increasingly common occurrence in post-Christian Western and American society.  Most people have little or no clue that they are in fact demonically subjected while some people, such as Marx, Nietzsche, Hitler and Stalin seem to possess a limitless supply of demonic energy, especially when engaged in imposing their will over the wills of others.

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

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

“….God created man in his own image…..male and female created he them.” Gen. 1:27 

According to the uniquely Christian view of total reality, the essence of the human is not the body and brain (the seen) but the unseen…the soul/spirit:  

It is the soul alone that God made in his own image and the soul that he loves…For the sake of the soul…the Son of God came into the world…” (Incomplete Work on Matthew, Homily 25, Ancient Christian Devotional, Oden and Crosby, p. 153)  

Building off of the view of man as embodied spirit, St. Augustine (AD 354-430) affirmed that as all men are the spiritual image bearers of the supernatural Triune God in three Persons, then it logically follows that each man is a person; a trinity of being comprised of soul/spirit (unseen), and body, brain (seen). 

The citadel of the soul is spirit (heart).  Spirit is immortal and self-aware.  It can will and think and is responsible for what it wills, thinks, speaks, and acts on while in this world.  

Spirit is the unique property that distinguishes soul from the material body in which it is fully embedded.  In Biblical thought, spirit allows man to spiritually transcend the natural dimension in order to access the third Heaven.  By way of prayer and petitions the spirit of man’s mind allows him to enter into a personal relationship with the Spirit of God.  Through this relationship, spirit is renewed over time, thus enabling man to more perfectly orient the manner of his thoughts, passions, words and actions in this world in preparation for eternity in Paradise.    

In Christian thought, a person is a spirit (self) and personality is the total individuality of the spirit.  Without spirit there is no ‘self,’ hence no person. 

The key to personal liberty in the natural or sensory half of reality is man’s spiritual liberty contrasted against a genetically pre-programmed animal-like orientation.  Animals have souls but not spirits, the basis of intelligence, sensitivity, imagination, self-consciousness, reflection back and forward into time, and the capacity for truth and moral goodness.  

A person is uniquely free because he can spiritually transcend his material brain to access the Spirit of the Lord as Paul affirms: 

Now the Lord is Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” (2 Cor. 3:17) 

Vishal Mangalwadi, India’s foremost Christian intellectual observes that this historically unique concept of man as God’s spiritual image-bearer gave birth to the “belief in the unique dignity of human beings,” and this is the force,

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

One-Dimensional Godless Naturalism: the Reality of Non-Self

Modern naturalism, whether of materialist or pantheist permutation positing a non-existent immanent conception of deity (i.e. Omega, Gaia) is at bottom Godless, and said Ravi Zacharias,  absolutely nothing,

"… has a more direct bearing on the moral choices made by individuals or the purposes pursued by society than belief or disbelief in God." Key issues of the day "whether it be...sexual orientation and practice, or life in the fetal stage, sooner or later filter down to whether there is a God, and if so, has he spoken?" (The Real Face of Atheism, Zacharias, p. 21) 

In "The Gnostic Religion," Hans Jonas provides a full-scale study of the heretical world of pre-Christian and Christian era pagan Gnostic nihilism together with its modern variants:  materialist and pantheist naturalism.

Jonas writes that while ancient Gnostic pagan man was thrown,

"...into an antagonistic, anti-divine, and therefore anti-human nature, modern man (is thrown) into an indifferent one." (p. 338)

The ancient gnostic conception was still anthropomorphic despite the nihilism, hostility and demonic.  But its’ modern counterpart with its' indifferent nature, its' completely godless, soulless, anti-human, demonic nature, represents the "absolute vacuum, the really bottomless pit."   

At least the ancient Gnostic dualism, as fantastic as it was, was at least self-consistent, as there was the illusion of a source for 'self' (being).   Not so for its' modern counterpart:

"So radically has anthropomorphism been banned from....nature that even man must cease to be conceived anthropomorphically if he is just an accident of nature.  As the product of the indifferent, his being, too, must be indifferent.  Then the facing of his mortality would simply warrant the reaction, 'Let us eat and drink for tomorrow we die." (ibid, p. 339)

In conclusion:

"...modern nihilism (is) infinitely more radical and more desperate than gnostic nihilism ever could be for all its panic terror of the world and its defiant contempt of its laws.  That nature does not care, one way or the other, is the true abyss.  That only man cares, in his finitude facing nothing but death, alone with....the objective meaninglessness of his projected meanings, is a truly unprecedented situation." (Jonas, p. 339)

In other words, the death of the living God of Revelation means there is neither source for life and ‘self’ (soul/spirit) nor for higher truth and morality, purpose, meaning, salvation and eternity.   For depersonalized man, the evolved ape or bag of chemicals, there is nothing---no heaven above, no hell below and no, 

".... vast mind behind the framing of the world; no transcending voice giving counsel to this world...no light at the end of the tunnel (hence only) the loneliness of existence in its most desolate form."  (Zacharias, p. 27) 

The determined assault against the living Holy God that began during the Renaissance gained speed and force with the materialist implications of Darwin’s neo-pagan theory.  The idea that humans evolved by chance and natural selection from non-life bearing chemicals lay the axe at the very foundation of the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo.  On the heels of Darwin’s theory Christianity came under forceful attack allowing a one-dimensional worldview draining into nihilism to be declared a scientifically supported reality.

Darwin's "Origin of Species" was published in 1859 and instantly and uncritically accepted by people such as Karl Marx, T.H. Huxley, Herbert Spencer, Ernst Haeckel in Germany and large numbers of clergy more eager to be thought scientific and modern than to defend the faith once given. 

For materialist and pantheist alike, Darwin's theory was a wish come true and so became the center of their respective one-dimensional worldviews.

The demonized Karl Marx hated the God of Revelation and his exuberance for Darwin's idea prompted him to consider dedicating his Das Kapital to Darwin, an honor which he declined.  Since Marx favored scientific materialism the rationale behind his invitation to Darwin was that he saw how Darwin’s materialist theory provided a scientific framework to support the economic infrastructure on which Marx could build his godless communist utopia.  

Darwin's materialist theory and Marxist materialist presuppositions (economic theory based on envy and hatred of God) together with Freud's materialist-based analysis of religion and human sexuality threw faith in God and Christianity “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 multitudes of unsuspecting Westerners who would eventually be cruelly exploited by anti-human haters of God.  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)

However, rather than mindless infatuation for Darwin’s idea, Nietzsche (1844–1900) harshly criticized it:

"What surprises me most when I survey the broad destinies of man is that I always see before me the opposite of that which Darwin and his school see or want to see today: selection in favor of the stronger, better-constituted, and the progress of the species. Precisely the opposite is palpable … I incline to the prejudice that the school of Darwin has been deluded everywhere…” (Nietzsche: The evolutionist who was anti-God and anti-Darwin, Russell Grigg, creation.com)

Nietzsche was not anti-evolution but rather had his own evolutionary conception which he called “the will to power."   

While Darwin received his idea from his pantheist grandfather Erasmus Darwin, Nietzsche's conception was preceded by mystical ecstasy.  Nietzsche experienced two mystical encounters with the first one taking place in August, 1881.  

Charles Andler writes that previous to his scientific reasoning, Nietzsche received revelations during mystical encounters just as Spinoza did.  Mystical ecstasy,

".... preceded (Spinoza’s) system and his geometric form, thus, with Nietzsche mystical ecstasy preceded his scientific reasoning." (Charles Andler cited by Henri De Lubac, "The Drama of Atheist Humanism," p. 481)

According to Henri De Lubac, secret knowledge was revealed to Nietzsche that he was "....the first of men to know.'   The shock of it was sudden and profound.  Though no direct document relates his experience sure evidence is found in an agitated page of Ecce Homo where Nietzsche wrote:

"Suddenly, with sureness, with indescribable delicacy, a thing makes itself seen, makes itself heard.  It shakes you, it overwhelms you right to your innermost depths.  You hear it...You let it fill you....A thought blazes forth like a flash of lightening...It imposes itself as a necessity...I never had to choose it.  It is an ecstasy....You are enraptured, taken outside of yourself...All of this...is accompanied by a tumultuous feeling of liberty, of independence, of divinity...There you have my experience of the inspiration." (Lubac, p. 472)

In the months that followed he remained silent about the knowledge he received.  But in August of 1882 he discussed his experience with Lou Salome.  Salome writes that Nietzsche spoke of his encounter only in obscure words and with hushed voice.  Giving "every indication of the most profound horror" Nietzsche described the terrible and marvelous revelation he had received with two words: Eternal Return. (ibid, p. 473)

In the autumn of 1882 he experienced his second encounter which he described in the poem Sils Maria:

"I was sitting and waiting, without waiting for anything/Beyond good and evil, tasting Light sometimes and sometimes shade/Absorbed by this brew...When suddenly...what was one became two, And Zarathustra passed before me..." (ibid, p. 475)

It was a vision without a doubt, precise and sudden:

"I could tell you the day and the hour....Zarathustra has fallen on me, he assaults me.."  (ibid)

Zarathustra was an evil spirit who confirmed to Nietzsche the ‘truth’ of the revelations already received, which included man's evolution from worms:

You [mankind] have made your way from worm to human, and much in you is still worm. Once you were apes, and even now the human being is still more of an ape than any ape is." (Nietzsche, Thus Spake Zarathustra, Zarathustra’s Prologue section 3, trans. by G. Parkes, Oxford University Press, New York, 2005, p. 11)

Henceforth, Nietzsche is an inspired prophet who knows for certain that the God of Revelation is dead, that man’s evolution from worms is absolutely true, and that he is Jesus Christ's successor, the ‘new’ Christ.  Within ten days he drafted by way of automatic writing the whole first book of his prophecy.  He called his finished work Zarathustra, the new Bible of scientific evolutionary naturalism, and told the world to throw away all other books, for now you have my Zarathustra, "a new Holy Book." 

It was Nietzsche, the ‘new’ Christ, who saw that the death of the personal God had already begun to cast its first dark 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, the ‘new’ Christ 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 was the first apostate Christian to gaze fully upon man's loss of faith and its terrifying consequences.  With no living God ‘up there’ to obstruct his vision, the nihilism he saw was agonizing.  As there was no longer any Light from God above, there was only darkness in the hermetically sealed world below.  The paralyzing darkness that overtook the mind of the ‘new’ Christ was spiritual.  It was not so much,

"....an exterior phenomenon crowding inward but rather an inner blinding that spread outward." (Ravi Zacharias, p. 27)

This was precisely Nietzsche's point.  With the death of the personal God of Revelation the darkness of objective meaninglessness would penetrate every avenue of thought and life, making life itself unbearable with the consequence of hedonism, abortion, euthanasia, sodomy, suicide, drugs, crime and murder becoming virtues.  

Speaking through the writings of the ‘new’ Christ, Zarathustra went on to say that because God had died in the 19th century there would follow two terrible consequences beginning in the 20th century. (Romans 1:18)

First, the 20th century would become one of the most evil century’s in history, and second, a universal madness (Romans 1:21, 22) would break out and turn the once glorious W. Europe and America upside-down. 

Though apostates and the apostatizing professed themselves wise, their cognitive thought processes would become darkened (vain) and with their conscience dead to sin they would become fools, meaning they would accept and publicly profess incredibly stupid conceptions of themselves (i.e., man is an evolved worm, ape or robot; man is evolving into god).

And I will give children to be their princes, and the effeminate shall rule over them.” Isaiah 3:4  

In turning away from the Spirit of God and the truth He has given, ‘wise’ males will become effeminate cowards and females mannish.  They will be adolescent emotional-tyrants in adult-size bodies: sinister, greedy, spiteful, vindictive, treacherous, back-stabbing sophists.  They will celebrate Lucifer (the devil) and in their madness actively seek the way of Luciferian initiation because they will be spiritually blind in regard to total reality.  Like demons they will flee from the cross of Jesus but exalt the devil as the first free thinker, the genetic creator of man, the seething energy and angel of evolution.  Truth will be lies, evil will be good, unfaithfulness will be faith and the ‘wise’ will preach and blaspheme from pulpits, exercise political power, enact legislation, and wield broken law to plunder, punish, and ruin.  

Zarathustra has been right on both counts.  First, apostatizing W. Europe and America, though dotted here and there by small islands of Light, decency and sanity, are becoming darkened, satanically inverted places ruled by the ‘wise,’ hence boiling over with madness, particularly Hollywood, academia, mainstream media and the highest, most powerful political offices in the land.   Second, Nietzsche was made to show the ‘wise’ what is in store for them by spending the last eleven years of his life insane.

The Spirit of Evolution, Damnable Heresy and Antichrists

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

John identifies antichrists with two specific elements. 

First, they are individuals who specifically deny the living, personal Holy Trinity in favor of immanent and/or pantheist conceptions.   Though God the Father Almighty in three Persons upholds the souls of men and maintains life and creation, His substance is not within the space-time dimension as pantheism maintains, but outside of it.  Fallen men are burdened by time and mortality, God is not.   

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

Therefore, to deny the Holy Father is to logically deny the deity of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, hence,

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

According to Peter, false prophets and false teachers will work among the faithful, teaching damnable heresies that deny the Lord, thus they are antichrists who bring destruction upon themselves. (2 Peter 2:1)

The Spirit of Evolution and the Most Damnable Heresy

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

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

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

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

As Bainbridge and Stark admitted, evolution directly contradicts the Bible, beginning with the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo.  This means that evolution is the antithesis of the Genesis account. For this reason, discerning Christians refuse to submit to the evolutionary thinking that has swept Western and American society, even into the whole body of the Church. 

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

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

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

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

It is the case that priests eager to accommodate themselves and the Church to modern science and evolutionary thinking inevitably begin by persuasively arguing that evolution is entirely compatible with the Bible when we see Genesis, especially the first three chapters, in a non-literal, non-historical context.  This is the view embraced and advanced by mega-church pastor Timothy J. Keller (b. 1950).  

With a position paper Keller published with the theistic evolutionary organization BioLogos he joined the ranks of compromising Catholic and Protestant priests stretching back to the Renaissance whose fall into apostasy began by giving into the temptation to embrace a non-literal, non-historical view of Genesis.  (A response to Timothy Keller’s ‘Creation, Evolution and Christian Laypeople,” Lita Cosner, Sept. 9, 2010, creation.com) 

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

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

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

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

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

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

In the integral worldview teachings of the Fathers, neither the literal nor historical meaning of the Revelations of the pre-incarnate Jesus, the Angel who spoke “mouth to mouth” to Moses (Num. 12:6-9; John 9:20) can be regarded as expendable.  There are at least four critically important reasons why.  First, to reduce the Revelation of God to allegory and myth is to contradict and usurp the authority of God, ultimately deny the deity of Jesus Christ; twist, distort, add to and subtract from the entire Bible and imperil the salvation of believers.

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

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

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

Rather than showing respect for modern Origenists, Huxley took great pleasure in heaping piles of hot coals and burning contempt upon them, thereby exposing their shallow-reasoning, hypocrisy, fear of non-acceptance, and faithlessness.  With sarcasm dripping from his words he quipped,

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

Pouring yet more contempt on them he asked,

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

Concerning Matthew 19:5:

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

And concerning Cor. 15:21-22:

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

After much thought, C.S. Lewis concluded that evolution is the central, most radical lie of the entire network of lies within which we are living.  According to Rev. Clarke, evolution is the Gospel of another Spirit and its’ aim is not to help men find God but to lose Him, and by contradicting the Divine Redeemer, compromising Priests are serving this Spirit and its’ diabolical purposes.  To contradict the Divine Redeemer is the very essence of unfaithfulness, and that it should be done while reverence is professed,

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

Evolutionary theists are not helping men to find God but to lose Him and hope of salvation, thus they serve the devil.  Therefore, no considerations of Christian charity, of tolerance, of policy, can exonerate  Christian leaders or Churches who fail to condemn, and to sever themselves from compromising, cowardly, shilly-shallying priests---the heretical Origenists and their like-minded followers who challenge the Divine Authority of Jesus Christ. (ibid)

The rebuttals, warnings and counsels of the Fathers against listening to Origenists and their modern evolutionary counterparts who today preach a spiritually empty, meaningless, dead-end theology indicates that the spirit of antichrist operating through modern rationalistic criticism of the Revelation of God is not a heresy unique to our times but was inveighed against by early Church Fathers.

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

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

Our Only Defense against the Destructive "Me" Generation & Antichrist Utopianists

Though not entirely, the present generation of W. Europeans and Americans is for the most part the “me” generation of “self-lovers” who know only today’s dark climate marked by narcissism, cynicism, lying, sexual anarchy, and psychological and physical bullying.  For the present generation, drug trafficking, rapes, shootings, gang and mob violence, and sex predation inour schools, universities, Hollywood, the White House and Congress are common.   So too are break-ins, beatings and murders. 

Having been spoon-fed anti-Western history the present generation has no memory of yesterday’s societies where the majority of people lived frugally, told the truth, respected parents and elders, dressed decently and modestly, spoke and behaved politely, and waited their turn.  Yesterday’s generation believed that humility, playing by the rules, acting honorably and courageously and having a good reputation were virtues worth striving and sacrificing for.   But existing as they do in our morally and intellectually degenerate, atheistic, lawless societies today’s morally-unfettered ‘me’ generation cannot believe that at one time Christmas carols were sung in schools, house and car doors were routinely left unlocked and windows left open; purses and other belongings could be left safely in cars even with the windows rolled down, and children were at liberty to play safely in their yards, to roam their neighborhoods and walk or ride unmolested to school.

Where yesterday’s generation knew they were sinners, reverenced and worshipped God, hoped and longed for heaven and knew that hell and the devil exist, the “me” generation, having been brought up on Darwinism, mainly believe that God, Original Sin, heaven, hell, and the devil are superstitious nonsense thus they are free to do whatever they want to do so long as they can get away with it or have it declared a ‘right.’ 

For many long years, thoughtful, concerned people have been pointing to the connections between Darwin's evolutionary theory, the narcissistic “me” generation, the apostatizing Church and the spreading epidemic of self-love, moral insanity, hatred, despair, paranoia, disordered thinking, dark fantasies, psychosis and other spiritual pathologies together with the breakup of the family, the abortion of 60,000,000+ unborn, the subversion and perversion of children, and the relentlessly rising tide of psychiatric drug and porn use, crime, decadence, homicide and suicide in the 'evolutionized' West and America.

If Darwin was right, man is nothing more than a soulless bag of chemicals or equally soulless hominid and there is no ultimate fixed meaning or higher purpose to life except what we choose:

" You are born, you suffer, you die — that's it. Perhaps, if you're lucky, you may get recycled as organic manure — but beyond that, you're just a number that happened to come up in the great casino of the universe." (Darwin, Spurgeon and the 'black dog,' Carl Wieland, Creation.com)

Wieland points out that even where Darwin is denied,

".....but 'millions of years' ideas are proclaimed, hopelessness finds foothold. Any 'god' who condoned millions of years of death, cruelty, disease and bloodshed, certainly cannot be the personal, biblical God of love. And if the Bible got it so obviously wrong about the timing of creation as to mislead hundreds of millions of Christians until the present day, how can we really trust it about our eternal future? John 3:12 (ibid)

Darwinian theory as 'evolutionary fact' has finally reached saturation point in government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, the public arena and increasingly within the whole body of the Church, which is why pathological lying, nihilism, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, mass murder, decadence, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.

If the living God does not exist and man does not have to account to Him for his actions here in this world then why not, as the liberal Donald Kaul suggests, repeal the Second Amendment and declare the NRA,

".... a terrorist organization and make membership illegal.... (I would also raze the organization's headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that's optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that "prying the guns from their cold, dead hands" thing works for me." (Des Moines Register publishes gun-ban column advocating deadly violence against NRA, GOP leaders, Tim Graham, foxnews.com, Jan. 2, 2013)

All of this makes a devilish kind of sense if the living, personal Holy God does not exist, men are not sinners, and life has no higher, fixed meaning or purpose since life magically created itself from nothing. If man is just matter and energy in motion or a bag of chemicals destined to be recycled as fertilizer, with neither hope of an afterlife nor any accountability to his Maker for his actions here in this world then why not commit suicide? Why not sexually pervert children, cheat on and maybe even murder your spouse, gun down children, terrorize neighborhoods, toss unwanted babies into trash bins, and use the force of perverted, meaningless law to vandalize and plunder the property and wealth of others? Why not redefine sodomy, pedophilia, pederasty, bestiality and lesbianism as 'gay' and then marry 'gay' couples in Washington's National Cathedral? (Washington National Cathedral to Wed Same-Sex Couples, Ben Brumfield, CNN, Jan. 9, 2013)

But if the living Holy God really does not exist, nor do hell and the devil, and men are not sinners then it makes no sense whatever for Marxist Communists, leftists, progressives and their devilish ilk to praise Lucifer if the devil does not exist and to deliberately unfetter the evil sin nature of men if sin does not exist.  But like the devil their father, Marxist Communists and their devilish revolutionary comrades of yesterday and today are treacherous liars, Judases bent on deception, treachery, betrayal, destruction, and death, as Karl Marx’s anarchist comrade Bakunin makes clear in the following declaration that also includes a concrete plan for unleashing the evil within every man and woman:

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

In other words, right from the beginning of their devilish mission there has been an agenda to deceive, demoralize and dumb-down Westerners and Americans, to persuade them to believe that Darwinism is true, that the Holy Righteous God is dead, man is not a sinner, and heaven, the devil and hell do not exist.   

But like their father the devil they are liars.  Over on Trevor Loudon’s website is a list of forty-five Communist goals that are a mixture of deceptions and ways of unleashing the devil in “sinless” Americans:

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”    (http://www.trevorloudon.com/2013)

At this link, http://www.crossroad.to/Quotes/communism/communist-senate-hearing-wurmbrand.htm, Rev. Richard Wurmbrand describes how evil-minded Communists infiltrated and exploited the Church in order to bend it to their own antichrist purposes, primarily the destruction of faith in Christ:

In prison there were not only priests and pastors (but) hundreds of peasants and young boys and girls (imprisoned) for their Christian faith.  These were separated and for them there was a special brainwashing, not only that ‘communism is good,’ but ‘Christianity is dead, Christianity is dead, Christianity is dead.  Nobody more believes in Christ, nobody more believes in Christ, you are the only fools.” 

At the following link ex-KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov explains that Americans have been deliberately demoralized in order to unleash the devil within them and indoctrinated with lies and atheist communist ideology:

The “me” generation is the product of our atheist controlled schools, universities, media, and communist-style propaganda and mind-control that taken as a whole has befouled their conscience and crushed their liberty of thought in the name of power, control and socialism.  More importantly, they are the spiritually dead products of Darwinism, which has reduced them to less than nothing and taken from them all purpose, meaning and hope.   Unfettered from morality they are the destructive generation raised up by antichrist globalists for one purpose: to destroy their own country, culture, and way of life so that out of the ashes a utopian kingdom of ‘god’ (Lucifer)  will finally arise.

As steel is forged within fire, the Communist hell-on-earth (Gulag) in which ex-atheist Alexander Solzhenitsyn was imprisoned was a crucible of fire that forged him into a more Christ-like man of virtue and wisdom, which comes only from suffering.  Of the wisdom he gained was the insight that religion, but more specifically morality, serves to constrain the evil that is within every man and woman bar none. With this in mind, the means to power and control comes from unfettering the evil within man. This way of attaining power and control was not lost on Marxist Communists and their evil-mind ilk.

Seen in this light we can understand why the West’s and America’s globalist ‘elite’ classes have been undermining and destroying every vestige of moral law, sexual ethics, and all other constraining influences for more than 70 years.   This is the real reason behind the revision of Western history and the censoring and disappearance of words and phrases like ‘immutable truth’ ‘moral absolutes’ ‘sin’ ‘repentance’ ‘judgment’ ‘heaven’ ‘devil’ and ‘hell.’

Peter Hitchens, author of “The Rage against God,” knows this to be true, and he calls on all decent, God-fearing Americans to have the courage to bring these concepts back into the social arena before it’s too late.   Hitchens writes that the living Holy God is the chief rival of devilish leftists and their fantasy of building a kingdom of ‘god’ here on earth:

Christian belief, by subjecting all men to divine authority, and by asserting in the words, ‘My kingdom is not of this world’ that the ideal society does not exist in this life, is the most coherent and potent obstacle to secular utopianism.” (p. 134)

Similarly, Christ’s reproof of Judas, ‘the poor always ye have with you,’ when he complains that the precious ointment should have been sold to feed the poor rather than applied to Jesus is another stumbling block and annoyance to global reformers:

By putting such socialistic thoughts in the mouth of the despised traitor-to-be Judas, and by stating so baldly the truth known to all conservatives that poverty cannot be eradicated, the Bible angers and frustrates those who believe that the pursuit of a perfect society justifies the quest for absolute power. “ (p. 135)

Against the destructive “me” generation and the antichrist globalists who are responsible for unleashing the devil in them, Hitchens advises that the concepts of sin, of conscience, of eternal life,

“…and of divine justice under unalterable law are the ultimate defense against the utopian’s belief that ends justify means and that morality is relative.” (ibid, p. 135)

Only the living Holy God in Three Persons, sin and the need to repent, immutable truth, moral absolutes, conscience, Divine Judgment, and eternal life in either Paradise or outer darkness with the devil and his evil host are the ultimate defense against the worship of human power by the destructive “me” generation and antichrist global utopians in their quest to build an earthly kingdom of Lucifer after the fashion of the now dead Soviet Union.
