Demonic Mendacity of the Christ-Hating Gnostic Progressive Left

Since the Sexual Liberation movement of the '60s,  America has been experiencing an explosion of neo-Gnostic pagan movements in concert with a relentless assault on immutable truth, reality, first principles, universal moral law, and the created order of being---the two sexes (male and female) for example. These movements interface with, occult Gnostic, and other mystical pantheist collectivist notions: New Age cults, Satanism, transcendental meditation, Wicca, goddess worship, ‘gay’ shamanism, reincarnation, Luciferian Theosophy, LGBTQ+, the Great Apes Project and all other animal rights agendas, Gaia worship, deep ecology, channeling and other such occultisms. All are types of pantheist collectivism which stress in one way or another that mankind is ‘one with’ nature (the evolving universe of psychic energy and matter) and should therefore make obeisance to it as Sovereign.

In his penetrating analysis of the Gnostic Progressive Left, M. Stanton Evans author of "The Theme is Freedom: Religion, Politics, and the American Tradition," observes that it is only against the background of neo-paganism that the bizarre ‘isms’ of Leftist politics come into focus. The common feature of all these movements---naturalism, materialism, sexism, multiculturalism, feminism, determinism, economic determinism, racism, heteronormativism, and patriarchalism for instance, is that they view irrational nature itself as ultimate and sovereign. In other words, they make a god of irrational nature, which is precisely why Al Gore is synonymous with Gaia, global warming, and carbon footprints, and the Left in general zealously stresses collectivism, solidarity, oneness, inclusion and other worldly social justice concerns.  Evans comments:

Much of it, indeed, is pantheism or other nature-worship, dressed up as secularism or science.” Darwinian evolution is the “most influential case in point (as it) explicitly replaces (or identifies) God with physical nature, and in some versions even attributes to nature, or some agency within it, ineffable designs.” (The Theme is Freedom, p. 122)

For almost one-hundred years, the Gnostic Left has been engaged in stealthily undermining and gutting our founding documents and America’s religious, social, political, legal, and cultural infrastructures. Toward this end, they’ve managed to infiltrate alien meaning into the Word of God, seminaries and pulpits as well as marginalize and deconstruct the Declaration of Independence—the charter document. Toward this end Leftist change-agents have cleverly infiltrated new and alien meaning into our Constitution. Whereas originally, the individual’s right to liberty was viewed as inalienable because God-given---thus fixed and unchanging---the Holy Trinity has been declared dead. His ‘death’ allows pagan and pantheist Progressive Leftists to replace Him with a mystical god-state and redefine His creative power as divine energy identified as evolution and 'natural selection,' Subsequently, group privileges (collectivism) are increasingly sweeping away individual rights.

Where each and every human life possesses an ‘inalienable right to life’ was held as an immutable truth and a universal moral good, the ‘scientifically enlightened’ politically correct view holds that truth and morality are irrelevant and human life without value, dignity, or purpose. Taking the place of our inalienable right to life is politically correct choice. In reality, choice is an elitist eugenics mentality in disguise, hence it views procreation of undesirables---such as Conservative Christians---as bad, therefore all population control schemes such as euthanasia, abortion, and the abomination called partial birth abortion---which is tantamount to infanticide---are ‘good.’

However, despite these and the Gnostic Left’s many other successful changes toward a satanic inversion of America’s traditional cultural, social, political, and legal order, our Second Amendment rights remain a primary concern to the totalitarian ambitions of Leftists. Gnostic Leftists want our guns because a weaponless people are a helpless people.

Various Leftists and their ilk predicted long ago that they and an interconnected network of Cultural Marxist and other humanist accomplices throughout academia, entertainment world, government, the church and elsewhere, would bring about the fall of the West by way of a ‘long walk through the culture.’ A diabolically conceived ‘walk’ that would incrementally condition our minds, demoralize and corrupt us, and slowly invert our traditional order by disarming, dumbing-down, and putting Westerners ‘to sleep’ (enslaving them) through confusion, disinformation, immorality, and ‘’sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll.” Unwary sleepers, it was confidently foretold, would never dream that they would one day awaken to the nightmare world of slavery unfolding all around us.

Over the course of many years those predictions have come true. For today, millions of Americans are an immoral, narcissistic, infantilized people addicted to instant gratification. whose mind-conditioning comes by way of warped, pornographic, propaganda-spewing media and entertainment. And while Americans have been sleeping, our universities and schools have become transmission belts for the proselytizing of Darwinism, socialism, political correctness, open-borders, New Age pantheism, sexual confusion, transgender (androgyny), one world collectivism, and hate:  hate-whitey, hate-Conservatives, hate-America, hate truth, hate history, hate free markets, hate straight males, hate-tradition, hate-morality, and hate the Biblical God.

As truth, common sense, morality, and knowledge of our founding Christian-based worldview fades to black, the American mind shuts down in tandem, thereby allowing the icecap of a new ‘green’ pantheist totalitarianism to relentlessly advance across our nation, snuffing out the light of Christ, liberty and all things good. Under its oppressive weight, America is crushed downward into a dark abyss of godless pagan superstition, where at the urging of the Left’s demonic mendacity, 2+2 becomes 5, males are females, females are males, Christmas is increasingly defined as a Festival of Light (which means occult enlightenment), and with the Supreme Court’s 2015 Obergefell v. Wade decision, America has turned a corner of historic and ominous significance:

"The Declaration of Independence, declaring that rights and laws are endowed by the Creator, has been rendered meaningless by a fake redefining of marriage, with no reference to the Creator or to any objective standards. The charade is over. This decision indicates that what has been happening for some time is finally here for all to see: the USA is clearly a “godless nation.” Let public figures supporting this decision no longer say or sing: “God bless America.” or “Amazing Grace.” It is just as worthless as their view of marriage."  (The Body Politic is Queer, Dr. Peter Jones, truthxchange, Jun. 26, 2015)

Our founders long ago warned Americans that only a God-fearing, informed, and virtuous people can remain a free people, for these practices lend themselves to impulse control issuing in self-determination and the cultivation of higher reason and logic, hence to individual liberty and our form of self-government. In the words of Patrick Henry---Christian patriot, governor of Virginia, revolutionary general, “The Voice of Liberty,’ and signer of the U.S. Constitution:

The great pillars of all government and of social life (are) virtue, morality, and religion. This is the armor, my friend, and this alone, that renders us invincible.”

Ignorance, narcissism, relativism, and lack of self-control on the other hand, leads to lack of impulse-control (determinism) and the downward spiraling consequences of dependency, lying, cheating, crime, chaos, anarchy, and eventually slavery. Tragically, and of great consequence to the continuance of individual liberty, all too many Americans today are apathetic, drug-using, porn-addicted, infantilized, violence-prone, obscenity-spewing, sex-obsessed people, and the name Jesus Christ is for many of these---and particularly for the Left’s ‘self-anointed’---- the obscenity of choice. In 1909, Reverend Francis Grimke warned of the perils of moral corruption. He said:

If the time ever comes when we shall go to pieces, it will…be…from inward corruption----from the disregard of right principles…” (Equality of Right for all Citizens, Black and White Alike)

America’s greatest enemy is ourselves. For when we allow ourselves to fall down the slippery slope of moral corruption, ignorance, dependency, and apathy we fall right into slavery, both spiritual and physical. Our own freely chosen follies and conceits---in concert with a willingness to transgress---is the downfall of our individual liberties, self-government, decency, and a free America.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3.  Widespread acceptance of sodomy, lesbianism, transgender

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Illuminist Inspired Communism

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Bizarro" Progressivism

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Malignant Narcissism, Ressentiment and the Wrath of God


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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Satanism, Evolutionary Progressive Spirituality, and Goetia

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

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

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

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

Satanism and Progressive Spirituality

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

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

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

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

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

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

2. The material or natural dimension over the supernatural

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

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

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

Other Similarities:

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

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

The Humanist Manifesto II likewise declares:

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

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

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

In a similar vein, the Humanist Manifesto declares:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Aping LaVey, the Humanist Manifesto II states:

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

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

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

The Humanist Manifesto similarly states:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And correspondingly,

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

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

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

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

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