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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Neutrality Principle, Deconstructionism & the Historical-Critical Method 

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

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

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

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

Fourth-century Fathers such as John Chrysostom, Basil the Great and Ephraim the Syrian, all of whom wrote commentaries on Genesis, specifically warned against treating Genesis as an unhistorical myth or allegory. John Chrysostom strongly warned against paying heed to Gnostic heretics,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Delusion

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

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

Why Men Willfully Choose Ignorance, Absurdity, & Stupidity

In contending against the two most influential nature schools of thought, the Greek Epicureans (atheist pagans) and Stoics (atheist mystical pantheists), the Apostle Paul set the resurrection of Jesus Christ the Word Incarnate in the context of the sovereign decree of the God of Revelation and the inescapable fact of God's judgment on sin.  The reaction of the pagan sages was either to scoff and mock Paul or to brush him off with, "We will hear thee again of this matter." Acts 17:32(The Word of Flux,  Rousas John Rushdoony, p. 48)
 
By challenging the pagans concept of the unknown god in relation to the gods they claimed to know and by asserting the sovereignty of the revealed God of Scripture (Acts 17:22-31) Pauls' challenge seriously threatened their corpus of nature science, evolutionary cosmogony, and philosophy.   This threat was taken seriously for Paul had in effect declared that if there exists an unknown god of the gods which pagans claim to know yet which is wholly unknown despite exercising influence for good or evil on that which they say and know, do they really know anything at all?  If this unknown god of gods exists then why not destroy all the altars to the gods you say you know since they are inventions in the minds of men, absurd idols, useless for salvation, the work of man’s hands:

"They have mouths, but they cannot speak; They have eyes, but they cannot see; They have ears, but they cannot hear; They have noses, but they cannot smell; They have hands, but they cannot feel; They have feet, but they cannot walk; They cannot make a sound with their throat. Those who make them will become like them..."  Psalm 115:4-8

In other words, men who worship the inert, unknowing things of creation (i.e., matter, energy, time) become ignorant, absurd and stupid, unable to account for either the origin of life or man's thought-life, will, and conscience.

By contrast St. Augustine (AD 354-430) easily affirmed that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent Triune God of life then it logically follows that each person is a trinity of being, — of soul and its citadel spirit (thought-life, will, conscience), and body:

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

In 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 do not have spirits, which are linked to intelligence, imagination, sensitivity, self-consciousness, reflection and the capacity for truth and moral goodness.

A human being is uniquely free because his inner person can spiritually transcend matter 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)

Cornelius Van Til, the most profound writer in apologetics in the twentieth century points out that on the basis of naturalism it is impossible to know anything unless everything can be known, and since it is impossible to know everything then the whole of nature religion, science and philosophy is irrational because it cannot account for life, man's soul/spirit, truth and moral law.  Therefore nature worship is of ignorance,

"...of ignorance far deeper than (naturalists) are willing and able on (their assumptions) to own."   On the basis of naturalism, "there is no knowledge at all; there is nothing but ignorance." (ibid, p. 48)

In "The New Spirituality: Dismantling and Reconstructing Reality" Dr. Peter Jones cogently argues that since the Sixties we have entered a new, yet ancient world.  The intellectual pride of secular humanism (atheist paganism) and of its religious sister, "Christian" liberalism, has been exploded by the radical critique of postmodern deconstruction. The objectivity of sovereign human reason as a means to truth is now seen as pure fiction, so the world must be reconstructed on other grounds.  Postmodernism has brought an end to secularism and ushered in a triumphant form of ancient religious paganism that now claims,

 "... to put the shattered Humpty Dumpty back together again-not by reason but by unreason, not by the conscious mind but by the subconscious psyche, not by logos but by mythos, not by faith in the Lord of heaven and earth but by faith in the Goddess, mistress of divinized Nature. Having exorcized the demon of secular humanism, modern culture now sees seven more very spiritual ones rushing in to take its place."  (Modern Reformation)

 As this "new" oneness ideology dominates the campus and the popular media, rising generations are losing all sense of the antithesis (right or wrong, true or false, male or female), and are placing their faith in the pagan synthesis of "both/and" monism.  This is also true for young Christians if Mark Ostreicher, head of the largest evangelical training resource (Youth Specialties), has anything to do with it. He proposes to his youthful wards,

  "a path out of our bi-polar morass of left vs. right, liberal vs. conservative, mainline vs. evangelical...[away from] all the rhetoric, entrenchment and warfare-positioning of modern-day Christianity." Thusthe Church Militant becomes the Church Imitant, adopting "a new Christian worldview' that, devoid of theological biblical clarity, apes the pagan culture and concludes that "the body of Christ is queer, is man, is woman, is straight."  The "new Christian" employs spiritual techniques borrowed from pagan mysticism and imitates the self-justifying moralism of liberal social action."   

 Under the worldly wisdom of arrogant evolutionary Secular Humanism, instead of declaring of the God of Revelation, "Thy word is truth" (John 17:17), autonomous pagan naturalists declared of themselves, "our word is truth."  Pagan man's fiat word was truth and together with his nature science(evolutionary cosmogony and evolutionary biology) the only source of allowable knowledge. Pagan man was the new Ultimate and his word and his science rather than the God of Revelation and His inerrant Word the benchmarks by which all things were judged. 

 Now, as Dr. Jones pointed out, it is no longer the worldly wisdom of pagan naturalists (Secular Humanists) but even worse, the mystical irrationalism of the subconscious psyche, the supposed realm of the god force within.

 The Force is the ancient universal life force worshipped by ancient and modern mystical pantheists and pagans under a variety of names such as Serpent Power, Zoe, Vril, kundalini, and Evolution.   It was the evolutionary scientist and Hindu-pantheist heretic Teilhard de Chardin who said that after millions of years of evolutionary progress, evolution was becoming aware of itself, meaning "the Force is awakening." 

 After more than eighty years of nearly unopposed evolutionary evangelization in the schools, media, seminaries, academia and elsewhere mystical evolutionary pantheists are finally at liberty to declare that mystical evolution is a living "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)

Now that arcane scientism and mystical evolution reign supreme, occult pagan "god-men"  no longer feel like guests,

"..... in someone 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)

Under the influence of a Transcended Master (fallen angel), according to Robert Muller, the father of World Core Curriculum, now that evolution is "mind" highly evolved men are free to spiritually evolve into higher and higher forms, to become one with the 'divine:'

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

Man's Willful Choice of Ignorance, Absurdity, Stupidity

The reason for Western man's willful choice of ignorance is not ignorance about the existence of the Triune God of life but of sin.  Men and women of today desire suppression of the knowledge of their own sin which they hope will stifle the gnawing pain of a guilty conscience:

"The epistemological problem has roots in a false metaphysics, but both alike stem from a moral choice, man's sinful desire to be his own god....In reality, sin is man's rebellion against the law of God and man's attempt to be his own god, to replace God's Word with man's word."   (The Word of Flux, p. 51)

Man the sinner denies he is a sinner under the judgment of God.   He seeks escape from the moral law requirements of the Holy Triune God through establishing his own evolutionary cosmogony (anti-creation account), religion of nature, philosophy, and law to control the whole of reality by his fiat word exercised through the instrument of science:

"He therefore excludes the sovereignty of God and the authority of His Word, because man cannot allow such a God to exist in his world and to speak with authority to man." (ibid, p. 53) 

Though he may concede that such a God is possible, though only as First Cause of the Big Bang and life, as is the case with evolutionary theism and progressive creation, the basic reality for modern naturalistic man is his autonomous existence.

The world as the creation ex nihilo of the sovereign God of Revelation first gave way to the world as an evolving aspect of autonomous man's experience and now to an Eastern-oriented mystical pantheist illusion created by the will of the man-god:

"Man, at the same time, has stopped regarding himself as the vice-regent of God, created in His image, and (now sees) himself as a fragmented being ruled by ancient urges and lusts which control him and reduce his reason to a façade for rampant irrationalism.  Not surprisingly, T.S. Eliot saw modern man in a waste land of his own making." (ibid, p. 54) 

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." John 14:6   "..... 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

Isaiah lays out the only two responses to the Lord: obedience or the false light of man's worldly wisdom.  To those who choose the latter Isaiah said:
 
 "Behold, all you who kindle a fire, who equip yourselves with burning torches! Walk by the light of your fire, and by the torches that you have kindled! This you have from my hand: you shall lie down in torment."  (Isaiah 50:11, ESV)

Like its' secular pagan twin, the New Spirituality is a corpus of ignorance and absurdity. It is a strange fire unable to account for the origin of life and utterly useless for salvation.  Like its' twin it emerged from the void  (hell) and back into the void it will go taking with it all unrepentant sinners who "shall lie down in torment."

I Am the Alpha and Omega (Rev. 22: 13-21); Outside the Gates is Eternal Torment (Rev. 21:8; 22: 15)

" I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book,  and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!  The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen."  Revelation 22: 18-21 ESV

The bookends of Biblical theology are Genesis and Revelation, and it is in Rev. 22: 18-22 that our Savior Jesus Christ Creator of all things seen and unseen ex nihilo (John 1:3; Colossians 1:16) bears witness that no mere human may add to or take away from the Revealed Word without incurring the plagues described in the book of Revelation. As 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,  Moses also warned against adding to or subtracting from the Lord's commands (Deut. 4: 2; 12:37).

The evolutionary thinking so very popular with progressive Christians like Pope Francis and Reformed theologian Tim Keller and many others subtracts from the book of Genesis thereby subtracting from, hence diminishing the sixty-six books of the Bible.  In the words of Rev. C. Leopold Clarke, a lecturer at the London Bible College over eighty years ago, priests who embrace evolution are apostates from the 'Truth as it is in Jesus.' (1 John2:2)  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 primary tactic employed by priests eager to accommodate themselves and the Church to modern science and evolutionary thinking is predictable. It is the argument that evolution is entirely compatible with the Bible when we see Genesis, especially the first three chapters, in a non-literal, non-historical context. This is the argument embraced and advanced by Pope Francis, Tim Keller, et al.

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

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

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

"And Simeon blessed them and said to Mary his mother, “Behold, this child is appointed for the fall and rising of many in Israel, and for a sign that is opposed."   (Luke 2: 34-35)

Jesus Christ will be divisive. On one hand His preached Word will be the touchstone of humble men's characters, thereby revealing the secret good affections in their minds.  On the other, He will be a Sign that is opposed by the haughty and arrogant, thereby revealing the secret corruptions of their thoughts and enmity to Christ.  Thus the haughty and arrogant will oppose His doctrine, rail against  His people and deny and blaspheme His truth and holiness.   In this way the secret thoughts in the hearts of all men who worship and serve the images of their own minds (Psalm 97: 7) will be revealed, be put to shame, and judged concerning Christ.  Thus Jesus Christ is appointed for the fall of the haughty and arrogant and the salvation of the humble.

Therefore, blessed is the man who does not place his trust in haughty, arrogant theologians who stray after lies such as evolutionary science (Psalm 40: 4-5).  Stand firm, persevere, do not throw away your confidence:

"it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised."  (Hebrews 10:35-36)

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last," (Rev. 22:13 ESV) the beginning (Genesis, John 1:1) and the end (Revelation).

 Outside the gates of eternal life in God's City is eternal torment reserved for the haughty, arrogant and all who love Satanic falsehood, sensuality, and murder. (Rev. 21: 8; 22:15 ESV) 

In short, blessed is the humble man who trusts in the Lord because "Father knows best."

Blessed is the Man who Listens not to Proud Men who Stray After Lies

"Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” (Rev. 19:10) 

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

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

While most commentators identify the falling star as only Lucifer, in his Concise Commentary Matthew Henry provides a second, human identity.  Human falling stars are tepid, indecisive, weak or apostate clergy who,

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

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

Second, the specific denial of the Father who spoke creation into existence ex nihilo in six days 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, the life and light of men, the perfect fulfillment of law and prophecy (Rev. 19:10) 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 through denial of creation ex nihilo is to logically deny the deity of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, hence,

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

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

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

Falling Stars and Damnable Heresy

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Additionally, evolution inverts creation. In place of God's good creation from which men fell there is an evolutionary escalator starting at the bottom with a quantum fluctuation, an exploding Cosmic Egg (Big Bang) and matter (Sagan's star stuff) pregnant with life.  Emergent life somehow evolves upand through the life and death of millions of evolved creatures that preceded humans by millions of years until at long last an apish humanoid or pair of humanoids (mythical Adam and Eve) emerge into which a deity shaped and controlled by man and always in a state of becoming (evolving) places a soul.

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

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

Evolution is an abomination of desolation that conceptually unmakes and renders meaningless the Word of God, thereby opening the door to further abominations such as the Swedish lesbian bishop who wants to remove crosses from the church and mark the direction of Mecca to make it more inviting for Muslims (1).  Then there's the abomination identified by Austin Ruse as the "gay mafia."

In "Kim Davis Bleeding in the Rearview Mirror," Austin Ruse asks how it is that churchmen in general and certain celebrity priests in particular are so enamored of the 1.6 percent who are same-sex attracted that they would so eagerly and even gleefully insult millions of Christians who are scandalized by the manhandling of a good woman like Kim Davis by Catholic priests?

" It beggars belief, except when you consider the gay mafia. I am not suggesting or even remotely implying that either Martin or Rosica are gay, but they do seem to be abundantly sympathetic to the cause. ...In the slow-motion car-wreck of a Synod now going on, (celebrity star) Rosica promotes the gay narrative. For instance, he seems to be exaggerating the talk of homosexuality among the Synod fathers. Archbishop Chaput said it’s hardly been mentioned."  (Crisis Magazine, Oct. 16, 2015)

And to the presence offalse teachers, apostates and abominations blowing up the Body of Christ from within Jesus answered:

"Every plant which My heavenly Father did not plant shall be uprooted. Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit."   Matthew 15:13-14

Evolutionary 'Christians' and the "gay mafia" are blind guides of the blind.  Thus blessed is the man who does not place his trust in blind guides who stray after lies such as evolution (Psalm 40: 4-5) and exalt the works of their fallen imaginations against the knowledge of God . (2 Cor. 10:5) Do not throw away your confidence in the Lord:

"it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised."  (Hebrews 10:35-36)

Evolutionary Cosmologies & Unfettered Evil: the connections

In  “Made Peace With It” Before Aborting" Sarah Terzo quotes a pregnant Planned Parenthood worker who chose to kill her baby as saying the following:

"I felt this entity within me, flooding me with immense strength and love… While pregnant, there was also the feeling that I was never alone. I spent a lot of time lying on my bed with my hand on my belly letting the buzz of contentment vibrate through me (but) I am selfish and I know it. I want to travel the world and be a perpetual student. I know that, from my perspective, having a child would mean giving up many of my dreams, and until I am as joyful about the prospect of becoming a parent as I am about my other pursuits, I can’t give a child what he/she deserves" and though "I was amazed by the creation occurring within me. .…" I realized that having "an abortion is not always traumatic. If you can get beyond societal shame and expectation, you might find a message just waiting to be discovered. I never turned away from the fact that I would be ending a potential life. Facing and accepting this was the most important thing I could’ve done to prepare myself for my abortion....This might sound strange to some, but I actually talked with the being inside of me. I made peace with it. I knew that there was a reason for this pregnancy and it wasn’t about becoming a mother.”  (LifeNews.com, Nov. 21, 2014)

In the face of this shocking evil most Americans, and this includes large numbers of Christians, no longer know what to say because the Christian Church has for the most part, failed in its' duty to teach and defend the eternally unchanging Truth of God, His Moral Law (Ten Commandments), the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the fall and sin nature of all men and women and their desperate need of redemption and salvation.  Thus many Christians either do not know or are in denial of the highly uncomfortable truth that it is the unfettered sin nature---their own and that of other people--- that is responsible for America's growing tyranny of evil.  

So in the eyes of the Holy Triune God Who created man in His spiritual image, what are the primary sins of the woman who freely willed the murder of her baby?  To begin, the practice of abortion by both Christians and non-Christians,

"...is spiritual prostitution to an idol, defiles God's sanctuary and profanes His holy name. God alone is the Author of life and it is not the creature's prerogative to question the Creator's wisdom in bringing to life a fellow human being at conception. Whenever men disregard their Creator's wise judgment by destroying His innocent creation, they are serving another god. They are, in fact, spiritually prostituting themselves to the idolatrous self whom they believe is wiser in its value judgments." (Abortion and the Ancient Practice of Child Sacrifice, Andrew White, MD, 1/5/2012, Associates for Biblical Research)

Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image (Gen 9:5–6; ESV)

The Planned Parenthood worker is guilty of spiritually prostituting herself to idolatrous self (love of self; narcissism), and from ancient days such idolatry has led to abortion (murder) and all other forms of evil including lust for power over and domination of other people, property, and resources (ancient pagan despots; modern pagan Communists, Socialists, Progressives); unrelenting war in pursuit of these goals, speech control, shocking cruelty, deceit, treachery, sodomy, bestiality, pedophilia, pederasty, incest, slavery and individual and mass murder.  In our own time for instance, science has become the instrument of idolatrous man's will issuing in the elevation of science and evolutionary thinking above the Revealed Word of God.

Defiant science-adulating evolutionary theists and progressive creationists insist on displacing the Genesis account of creation by forcing the wildly popular Big Bang into the Bible, the inspired, written Word of God.   However, not only does the Big Bang not fit into the Bible but it also turns the Creator, Jesus Christ, into a liar, for He said that Adam and Eve were there "from the beginning of the creation" (Mark 10: 6; Gen. 1: 26-27) rather than several billion years after the beginning of creation as evolutionary speculators hold. 

For instance, when teaching about marriage, Jesus said that at the beginning of creation God:

 “made them male and female. … For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” So they are no longer two, but one(Mark 10:6–8).

Here Jesus quoted Genesis 1:27 and Genesis 2:24 about a real first man and first woman who were the first couple, and this is the basis for marriage between one man and one woman today.  Moreover, Adam (the first man) was the Holy God's spiritual image-bearer right from the start.  Evolution teaches instead that a whole population of humans eventually evolved from ape-like creatures.  Adam however, was fully person, fully man, fully embedded soul within flesh (body) right from the beginning, hence Church Father Tertullian condemns child sacrifice, saying that no matter how it is rationalized, it is still murder:

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

Evolutionary cosmologies are as ancient as the practices of men worshipping themselves as gods and of child sacrifice, sodomy, incest, and many other evils.  In fact, evolutionary thinking facilitates evil since if Darwin in particular and evolutionary thinking in general is right, then there was no fall so no sin nature and man is either a trousered ape or bio-machine.  As well, 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)  

If man is nothing but an excited node of evolution in process of evolutionary ascent with neither hope of physical resurrection nor any accountability to his Maker for his actions here in this world, hence no fear of Judgment and hell,  then he is free to be evil.  So why not euthanize the elderly?  And why should Obama and his henchmen respect and abide by the Constitution rather than do whatever they want to do? Why should parents not allow their children to be taught evolutionary science, daily absorb the violent messages within most video games, rap music, and hard rock? And why ought children brought up on evolutionary science and 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)

 And if you're the Planned Parenthood worker why not kill your unborn baby if its' life interferes with your selfish ambitions?   Among the idolatrous social elite of Punic Carthage for example, the institution of child sacrifice (murder) was a common practice and may have assisted in the consolidation and maintenance of family wealth, of eliciting favors from the gods, and as a convenient way of disposing of unwanted and illegitimately conceived babies.

In 1921 the largest cemetery of sacrificed infants in the ancient Near East was discovered at Carthage. Hundreds of burial urns filled with the cremated bones of infants, mostly newborns but even some children up to six years of age were uncovered at Carthage. All of the victims had been burned to death on the altars of self-serving idolatrous men and women.

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

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

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

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

Throughout Western European and American society 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, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, mass murder, decadence, sodomy, 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 shaped and controlled by men as evolutionary theology posits. 

 Large numbers of Westerners both within and without the church now reject the Genesis account and believe instead that modern secular (neo-pagan and mystical pantheist) science has proven the earth and cosmos to be billions of years old, and that every living thing, from fish to dogs, apes and humans, evolved from a single cell which itself is the result of combination of chemicals.  Most believe that primordial matter resulted from the Big Bang. Certain high profile Christians like Pope Francis, Hugh Ross and the influential theologians and scholars who support them, teach that God is both the energizing force behind the Big Bang and the director of evolutionary process.

Moral Relativism

The Big Bang/ billions of years view results in a philosophy of moral relativism because if men were once something else, a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are we going to become something else – maybe divine supermen, god-men, super robots or cosmic beings – but nothing can be said about transgender, 'gay,' and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by the inexplicable explosion of a Cosmic Egg which may or may not involve a stumbling god shaped and molded by theologians who require Him to ignite the Big Bang.  

Biomachines and Trousered Apes

With regard to man's inner person, his soul/spirit, if life arose from chemicals and then billions of years later man evolved from lower life-forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts. Like beasts, man is not a person but a creature of the earth. Like them he has no spirit – free will, higher mental faculties, and conscience. He is a fleshy androgynous robot or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

 The denial of the literal and historic meaning of the Genesis account is foundationally the result of imposing neo-pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary cosmologies (i.e., Big Bang) upon the Bible.' Thus, it has baneful consequences which don't just stop with Genesis, but adversely affect the entirety of Scripture and the entirety of Western and American society too. The atheist Frank Zindler enthusiastically agrees:

"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 savior. 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)

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, paranoia, madness, 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.

As Zindler rightly concludes, evolution is the death knell of Christianity, hence the death knell of the uniquely radical definition of man as person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons. From this it follows that evolution is also the death knell of our Constitutional Republic since our inalienable (God given) rights are for persons, not trousered apes or biomachines.

As the socially destructive consequences of evolution, moral relativism and unfettered sin reverberate throughout the church and society our age increasingly becomes an age of idolatrous worship of self, defiance against God and a spreading tyranny of evil as self-idolaters increasingly demand the sacrifice of other people, their children, property, rights and even their lives on altars of self-gratification.

Evolutionary Cosmologies: Religious Endeavor to become like God

Throughout the de-Christianized West and America neo-pagan and mystical pantheist evolutionary reasoning is taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as it is in all aspects of modern thought and experience.  It not only undergirds biological and earth sciences, but also Freudian and Jungian psychology, anthropology, law, sociology, politics, economics, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic---and increasingly seminarian---disciplines as well. The West's amoral transnational elite Gnostics, the "chosen" ones, are particularly enamored of evolutionary reasoning:

"Western cultural elites have disregarded God for more than two centuries, but for a while the effects were mostly confined to their own circles. At first, they disregarded God. Then they deliberately desecrated Western tradition and lived in ways that would have spelled disaster if they had been followed more closely. But now in the early twenty-first century, their movement from disregard to desecration to decadence is going mainstream, and the United States is only the lead society among those close to the tipping point.... Soon, as the legalization and then normalization of polyamory, polygamy, pedophilia and incest follow the same logic as that of abortion and homosexuality, the socially destructive consequences of these trends will reverberate throughout society until social chaos is beyond recovery. We can only pray there will be a return to God and sanity before the terrible sentence is pronounced: "God has given them over" to the consequences of their own settled choices."  (Renaissance: The Power of the Gospel However Dark the Times, Os Guinness, p. 20)

Evolution: what is it?

"Evolution has always been a fundamentally spiritual concept.  In fact, some of the first thinkers to seriously explore the topic---the German Idealists of the early 19th century---were mystic philosophers who predated Darwin's Origin of Species by at least a century."  (A Brief History of Evolutionary Spirituality, Tom Huston)

Rene Guenon (1886-1951) concurs.  Guenon was a French metaphysician, writer, and editor who was largely responsible for laying the metaphysical groundwork for the Traditionalist or Perennialist school of thought in the early twentieth century.   In his brilliant critical analysis of Theosophy and Spiritism entitled, "The Spiritist Fallacy"  Guenon investigates and exposes the satanic esotericism working through various modern Western secret societies to pervert true religion---orthodox Christianity in particular--- in order to ultimately turn the world over to Luciferian forces.  

Guenon reveals that in early Theosophist and spiritist circles use of the word 'progress' or 'progressivist' preceded the use of the word 'evolution.' The roots of Theosophy, hence of evolution--the universal life force--stretch back to the ancient Upanishads of India in the East and in the West to ancient Babylon, Egypt and Greece.  In its modern version, progress, transformism, and/or evolution describes the progress (transmigration) of soul made possible by the life force 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 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..."  (ibid, p. 231)

Evolution is an ancient occult doctrine originating in ancient Babylonian Cabbala, Egyptian Hermetic magic and Mystery Religion traditions both East and West from the time of Babylon---the mother of all Mystery Religions---that entered Christendom during the Renaissance.  In "God and the Knowledge of Reality," the Catholic philosopher and historian, Thomas Molnar (1921–2010), reveals that certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Cabbala texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Cabbala. Then like Pico della Mirandola, they argued that Hermetic Cabbala--- the divine occult science or Magic Way of reaching divine status and powers through initiation, evolution (progress), and ritual procedures 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)

That Hermetic magic and Babylonian Cabbala are ancient Mystery Religion traditions undergirded by evolution is affirmed by G. H. Pember in his classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages."    In his impeccably researched book Pember thoroughly examines the role of fallen angels in connection with the occult science 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 progressive 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)

Today, evolutionary dynamics and science as the instrument of the will of sovereign man has so thoroughly replaced the personal Creator in the consciousness of vast numbers of secularized Westerners, both within and without the whole body of the Christian Church, that one of the leading evolution-worshippers of our day, Professor S.J. Gould, goes so far as to describe evolutionary biology as the story of mankind.  Evolution:

“....tells us where we came from, how we got here, and perhaps where we are going. Quite simply, it is science’s version of Roots, except it is the story of us all.”   (The Religious Nature of Evolution Theory and its Attack on Christianity, John G. Leslie and Charles K. Pallaghy, Ph.D., creation.com)

In fascinated affirmation, Theodosius Dobzhansky (1900-1975) , a prominent evolutionary biologist and progressive creationist, sees evolution as a light that illuminates all facts, a trajectory which all lines of thought must follow, for if man,

“...has arrived at his present state as a result of natural processes rather than a supernatural will, he can learn to control these processes…The concept of evolution, which is now basic to the life sciences, has provided new and in some ways revolutionary answers to questions men have been asking for centuries. The two most important of these are, ‘Why am I here, what is the purpose of human existence, and what is the nature of the world of life that surrounds us?”   (Dobzhansky, T., Ayala, F.J., Stebbins, G.L. and Valentine, J.W., Evolution, W.H. Freeman and Co., San Francisco, 1977)

The most widely held evolutionary cosmology, or model of the universe's beginning and development is the Big Bang theory.   According to this version of the “story of us all” the universe is thought to have 'exploded' from a 'cosmic egg,' sometimes called the ylem in a universe bounded by an edge.  The Encyclopedia Britannica notes that the big bang is a theory,

"...of the evolution of the universe.  Its’ essential feature is the emergence of the universe from a state of extremely high temperature and density---the so-called big bang that occurred at least 10,000,000,000 years ago....."(Big Bang Model, The New Encyclopedia Britannica, 15th edition, 2:205, 1992)

The big bang is based on two assumptions: 

"The first is that Einstein's general theory of relativity describes the gravitational attraction of all matter.  The second assumption, called the cosmological principle, states that the observer's point of view of the universe depends neither on the direction in which he looks nor on his location.  This principle applies only to the large scale properties of the universe, but it does imply that the universe has no edge, so that the big bang occurred not at a particular point in space but rather throughout space at the same time.  These two assumptions make it possible to calculate the history of the cosmos after a certain epoch called the Planck time.  Scientists have yet to determine what prevailed before Planck time."    (ibid)

Distinctions are in order here. While the first assumption qualifies as true science, the second assumption, sometimes misnamed the Copernican Principle, does not since it is completely metaphysical, or philosophical.  This is illustrated by Edwin Hubble (1889-1953) who discovered that distant objects appeared to have 'red shifts' approximately proportional to distance from earth. Hubble's speculative interpretation of this discovery presented it as evidence of an expanding universe without a center and without an edge (unbounded) as opposed to Hugh Ross, the popularizer of progressive creationism whose own imaginative assumption pictures everything exploding from a central point in a universe bounded by an edge. (Refuting Compromise: A Biblical and Scientific Refutation of 'Progressive Creationism' as Popularized by Astronomer Hugh Ross, Jonathan Sarfati, Ph.D., F.M., p. 146-147)

Ross’s brand of evolutionary Christianity is wildly popular among certain Christians.  It was as a teenager that Ross decided the non-biblical big bang was a fact, thus it is the foundation stone of his twisted Scriptures---twisted because his big bang assumptions lead him to trip, stumble and fall down evolution’s downward-spiraling vortex blurring distinctions between humans and animals as he goes. (ibid)

The Big Bang is devoid of experimental proof, yet because the universe is definitely running down this fact surely points to some kind of beginning. This is apparently why some Christian leaders--theistic evolutionists and progressive creationists such as Pope Francis, Hugh Ross, Tim Keller and many others who feel we simply have to accept the evolutionists' billions of years--- have decided to accept the Big Bang theory. After all, the Big Bang requires a beginning, and they feel this fits with the Bible.  (Big Bang -- The Bucks Stop There, Henry Morris, Ph.D., icr.org)

However, not only does the Big Bang---or any other evolutionary cosmology---- not fit into the Bible but it also turns the Creator, Jesus Christ, into a liar, for He said that Adam and Eve were there "from the beginning of the creation" (Mark 10: 6; Gen. 1: 26-27) rather than several billion years after the beginning of the creation as evolutionary speculators hold.  

As the Nicene Creed affirms, Gods Word starts with the creation of absolutely everything visible and invisible ex nihilo in the space of six days.  In his "Literal interpretation of Genesis" Augustine of Hippo notes that when God brought material reality into existence, "then time began its flight." That is, when God created material things (the visible), at the same time He created space and time (the invisible) as their context.  (Creator and Creature, Douglas F. Kelly, Table Talk: Biblical Dichotomies, p. 6) 

"It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh (matter) is no help at all" John 6:63

The Triune God brought the angels into being sometime during that first creative week and as Thomas Aquinas, one of the most respected theologians of the medieval church affirms,

"Nothing entirely new was afterwards made by God, but all things subsequently made had in a sense been made before in the work of the six days.  Some things...had a previous experience materially, as the rib from the side of Adam out of which God formed Eve; whilst others existed not only in matter but also in their causes, as those individual creatures that are now generated existed in the first of their kind."   (Summa Theologica, ibid, Sarfati, p. 120)

Evolutionary Cosmologies: Imaginative Assumptions

George Francis Rayner Ellis, a high-profile evolutionary cosmologist lets the cat out of the bag with his candid confession regarding the important role of imaginative assumptions with respect to the broad range of evolutionary models of the universe such as the Big Bang. Ellis admits:

"...I can construct...a spherically symmetrical universe with earth at its center, and you cannot disprove it based on observations."   "You can only exclude it on philosophical grounds.  In my view there is absolutely nothing wrong in that.   What I want to bring into the open is the fact that we are using philosophical criteria in choosing our models.  A lot of cosmology tries to hide that."  (ibid, Jonathan Sarfati)

In other words, the Authority and Revelation of God, particularly in His six day creation account is rejected a priori not on the grounds of observational science but on the philosophical assumptions of arrogant, defiant speculators whose imaginative evolutionary models are metaphysical projects pretending to be observational science.

Another unspoken Big Bang assumption is neo-pagan and mystical pantheist naturalism, which ought to ring alarm bells for faithful, orthodox Christians.   Naturalism posits that the universe and everything in it, including conscious life, is the result of entirely natural processes.  The Big Bang therefore, is a neo-pagan and occult pantheist evolutionary cosmology, an esoteric program from hell that rejects both the personal Creator and the supernatural dimension.  This position holds true despite the uninformed claims of speculators like Hugh Ross who claim that God created and ignited the Big Bang. 

While Pope Francis, Tim Keller and many other liberal revisionists embrace and endorse Big Bang cosmology thirty-three leading evolutionary scientists expose its frauds and fallacies in ‘Open Letter to the Scientific Community’ published on the internet (www.cosmologystatement.org) and in New Scientist (Lerner, E., Bucking the big bang, New Scientist 182 (2448) 20, 22 May 2004).  According to these evolutionary scientists:

"Our ideas about the history of the universe are dominated by big bang theory. But its dominance rests more on funding decisions than on the scientific method, according to Eric Lerner, mathematician Michael Ibison of Earthtech.org, and dozens of other scientists from around the world." (Secular scientists blast the big bang: What now for naïve apologetics? Carl Wieland, creation.com) 

The open letter includes statements such as:

1. "The big bang…relies on a growing number of hypothetical entities, things that we have never observed—inflation, dark matter and dark energy are the most prominent examples. Without them, there would be a fatal contradiction between the observations made by astronomers and the predictions of the big bang theory.’

2. "But the big bang theory can’t survive without these fudge factors. Without the hypothetical inflation field, the big bang does not predict the smooth, isotropic cosmic background radiation that is observed, because there would be no way for parts of the universe that are now more than a few degrees away in the sky to come to the same temperature and thus emit the same amount of microwave radiation. … Inflation requires a density 20 times larger than that implied by big bang nucleosynthesis, the theory’s explanation of the origin of the light elements.”

3. "In no other field of physics would this continual recourse to new hypothetical objects be accepted as a way of bridging the gap between theory and observation. It would, at the least, raise serious questions about the validity of the underlying theory."

4."What is more, the big bang theory can boast of no quantitative predictions that have subsequently been validated by observation. The successes claimed by the theory’s supporters consist of its ability to retrospectively fit observations with a steadily increasing array of adjustable parameters, just as the old Earth-centred cosmology of Ptolemy needed layer upon layer of epicycles." (ibid, Carl Wieland) 

It’s amazing to see how many Christian leaders have not merely succumbed to the ‘big bang’ idea, but embrace it wholeheartedly.  Carl Wieland comments:

"To hear their pronouncements, believers should welcome it as a major plank in our defense of the faith. ‘At last, we can use science to prove there’s a creator of the universe.’ However, the price of succumbing to the lure of secular acceptability, at least in physics and astronomy, has been heavy. We have long warned that adopting the big bang into Christian thought is like bringing the wooden horse within the walls of Troy."  

The Big Bang model is not the only game in town.  Among other imaginative models there is the quasi-steady-state model of the big bang antagonist, the late Sir Fred Hoyle.  Then there is the ekpyrotic model positing that our universe is a four-dimensional membrane embedded in a five-dimensional ‘bulk’ space.  Its proponents admit:

“Our proposal is based on unproven ideas in string theory and is brand new.” (ibid, Sarfati, p. 182)

Then there are the openly occult multiverse models proposing that our universe is not the only one but that space is filled with an infinite number of parallel universes.  Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees, who holds the honorary title of Astronomer Royal champions multiverse conceptions in the hope that in at least one or more of them living beings created themselves who are far more advanced than our own life-forms. Rees believes that if this is the case, then super-intelligent aliens might be capable of simulating in their brains or in a super-computer the complex history of our universe, meaning the universe we inhabit is a simulation lacking real substance and existing only as a mental construction in the minds of highly evolved aliens who seeded our world with life and travel through time in order to control man's evolutionary progress. (Scientific Mythologies, James A. Herrick, p. 216)

The idea that the universe we inhabit exists only as a mental construction is very similar to Hinduism's Brahman. Brahman is the Great Cosmic Spirit – the Ultimate One Substance (energy field, Void, Essence, prakriti matter) of material phenomena, meaning that the universe exists only as a mental construction in the mind of Brahman: brahma satyam jagan mithya, or "Brahman is real, the world is unreal." (swamij.com/mahavakyas)

Rees proposal is also similar to the fanciful hypothesis presented by Olaf Stapledon, a scientist who has always kept one foot firmly planted in neo-pagan and occult pantheist science fiction accounts and imagines our universe to be an artifact of the Star Maker. Building off of Stapledons fantasy Carl Sagan suggests that we are "star folk" made of "star stuff." (Herrick, pp. 216-217)

Replace Star Maker with Brahman and "star stuff" with sarvam khalvidam brahma, or "All is truly Brahman" (swamij.com) and we have ayam atma brahmam: "The Self is Brahman." (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5

In the caption of his book, "Just Six Numbers," Rees reveals that the ancient occult basis of his proposition is the serpent biting its tail:

"The ouraboros. There are links between the microworld of particles, nuclei and atoms and the cosmos." (Rees M., Just Six Numbers, P. 9)

The serpent-powered Ouroboros with its astral planes or multiverses is well-known around the world in its' many ancient and modern occult traditions.

Evolutionary Cosmologies:  Abominations that Desolate

Like witless moths mesmerized by strange fire, from the Renaissance to our own time liberalized Christian theologians situated within the whole body of the Christian Church have been drawn irresistibly to evolution.   Followed by countless unwitting souls, they’ve been flying into an abomination that desolates and ejects them into a downward-spiraling vortex issuing into eternal hell unless they repent and turn back to the Truth, the Way, and the Life (John 14:6).

Evolutionary Cosmologies: The Significance

Today’s broad range of evolutionary cosmologies symbolize the deep religious desires of certain men, who in their rejection of our Lord Jesus Christ and physical resurrection, seek autonomous self-creation, transcendence and self-redemption, thus are incarnations,

“….of the ancient, deeply religious endeavor ‘to become like God’--- infinitely wise, omnipotent, autonomous, and immortal.” (Mircea Eliade, “The Forge and the Crucible: The Origins and Structures of Alchemy,” Dr. Erdmann)

They endeavor to become like God but shall instead,

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

Evolutionism: The Worldview of Evil Spirits

According to Anthony Breznican,

"Star Wars VII has a title: The Force Awakens."   (Entertainment Weekly, insidemovies.ew.com, Nov 6, 2014) 

The Force is the ancient universal life force worshipped by ancient and modern mystical pantheists and pagans under a variety of names such as Serpent Power, Zoe, Vril, chi, prana, Lucifer, and Evolution.   It was the evolutionary scientist and Hindu-pantheist heretic Teilhard de Chardin who said that after millions of years of evolutionary progress, evolution was becoming aware of itself, hence "The Force Awakens." 

After more than eighty years of nearly unopposed evolutionary evangelization in the schools, media, seminaries, academia and elsewhere Gnostic progressives are finally at liberty to declare that evolution is a living "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)

Now that magic science and evolution reign supreme, occult progressive "god-men"  no longer feel like guests,

"..... in someone 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)

According to Robert Muller, the father of World Core Curriculum, now that evolution is "mind" highly evolved men are free to spiritually evolve into higher and higher forms, to become one with the 'divine:'

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

".....the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one." 1 John 5:19 "Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness." Luke 11:35

From the post-flood world of ancient Babylon to our own, the majority of the world's people have lived under the tyranny of powers, principalities and various determinisms – karma, reincarnation, evolution, fates, furies, chance, cause, doom, natural selection, and genes. They believed that all events in the real world were predestined and controlled by unseen forces of the cosmos that the apostle Paul described as the elemental spirits of the universe.

When Jesus Christ God incarnate demonstrated His absolute control over the elements (Luke 8:24) the tyranny of determinism was cast down and utterly broken. In the fourth century Gregory of Nazianzen suggested that at the very moment when the Magi came to worship the child of Mary and Joseph, it was then that the tyranny of determinism was broken:

"From that moment onward, the cosmos has orbited around the newborn king...Christ is the logos – the word and the reason by whom all exists and to whom all is ordered." (American Babylon, Neuhaus, p. 226)

Determinism crept into the West when evil spirits entered into the heart of Christendom during the Renaissance. They came quietly, first to certain theologians who rejected Jesus Christ in favor of Hermetic magic, Babylonian Kabala, Eastern mysticism, reincarnation, evolution, karma and other occult traditions and determinisms, and then openly with the brazen claim that laws of matter and evolution ultimately govern the world and man.

With penetrating insight, Father Richard John Neuhaus connects modern evolutionary scientism to its' ancient spiritual foundations in astrology. In his book, "American Babylon," Neuhaus argues that astrological elemental spirits have been recast as,

"...evolutionary dynamics, life forces, or laws of nature." Though described as laws rather than spirits, these elemental "forces".... work their inexorable ways in cold indifference to reason, to will, to love, and to hope. In short, it is suggested that the elemental spirits are in charge and that human freedom is a delusion."(p. 226)

"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ." Colossians 2:8

According to Pastor Larry DeBruyn, the word "rudiments" (Greek, stoicheion) relates to the universe of matter and energy and is variously,

".... translated "elemental powers" (NAB), "elementary principles" (NASB), "basic principles" (NIV, NKJV), "evil powers" (NLT), and "elemental spirits" (ESV, NRSV). Translations indicate that stoicheion's meaning diverges between "principles" and "powers," between the "physical elements" constitutive of the cosmos or universe, or the "spiritual powers" that inhabit it. In 2 Peter 3:10, the first sense – that is, the "elements" which "shall melt with fervent heat" – is evident, while in Galatians 4:3 and 9, the other sense – that is, "world forces" which once "held in bondage" the Galatian believers – is evident." (The Supreme Supremacy of the Lord Jesus Christ, guardinghisflock.com)

The Worldview of Evil Spirits

The Bible emphatically affirms the reality of the occult world:

"The description of the universe as abnormal applies not only to the seen world that has fallen.  It applies also to an unseen world in which there is a devil and evil spirits who in their own rebellion against God have an active influence in the world and affairs of people."  (The Dust of Death: The Sixties Counterculture and How It Changed America Forever,  Os Guinness, p. 307)

In affirmation, the Apostle Paul wrote,

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm."  Ephesians 6:12

During the 1970s Satanism and possession became front page news in America. It was during this time that the eminent theologian Malachi Martin, a former Jesuit professor at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome published his shattering book on demon oppression and possession.

Martin's "Hostage to the Devil: the Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary Americans," presents five cases of actual possession that express important aspects of the worldview of evil spirits which allow us to not only identify these elements but discern their devastating effects within the whole body of the Christian church, the minds of theologians, millions of Americans and by extension, our nation.

The worldview of evil powers always takes the form of nature worship, or celebration of created things such as matter and energy as opposed to worship of the living, personal Creator Who created everything. Thus in support of the idea that living beings created themselves it is virulently anti-supernatural and Genesis account creation ex nihilo in favor of one dimensional naturalism and evolutionary cosmologies.

In one case, an evil spirit's evolutionary cosmology bespeaking the self-created "universe of matter" and human life was disclosed wherein,

"...men, women, animals, plants, cities, oceans (are) interconnected. There is really no difference between one thing and anything else....land, ocean, animals, humans, plants are one living organism clad in the shell of breathable atmosphere. Psychic forces bind it all together....It is a self-creating, self-protecting, self-developing thing.....Earth as mother, as womb, as god, as tomb, as a whole unity protected by its own shell and its own strength (is) all there is." (p. 395)

From the Big Bang (exploding cosmic egg) which supposedly created matter and energy in the demon's description of the universe as "self-creating" to inflationary in the description of the universe as a "self-developing thing" to Gaia as "Earth as self-protecting mother" the possessing demon's evolutionary cosmology is very similar to occult New Age spirituality.

Moreover, variations on the evil spirit's cosmology are affirmed and promoted by many science-obsessed Christians such as progressive creationist Hugh Ross, Pope Francis and pastor Tim Keller:

"The foundational documents of The Gospel Coalition clearly articulate a commitment to the historic, orthodox understanding of biblical inerrancy. Nevertheless, one of the cofounders of TGC, Tim Keller, has positioned himself to defend at least some versions of theistic evolution and progressive creationism (the distinction is not always clear). In a white paper published through BioLogos, Keller claims that the first chapter of Genesis is “exalted prose narrative,” and that, because of its literary genre, need not be interpreted literally....Keller is determined to torture the Genesis narratives on the rack of evolution. Not a word of his theory comes from the text; not a word of it is plausible without a prior and inflexible commitment to evolution."  (Matt Recker and The Gospel Coalition, Part 5: Inerrancy and Creationism, Kevin T. Bauder, Religious Affections Ministries,  October 24th, 2014)

Tim Keller is one of the founders of The Gospel Coalition, and if nothing else, said Bauder, the Coalition needs to be committed to a robust defense of the gospel against every error that would undermine its foundations:

" If The Gospel Coalition were fully committed to this task, it would have no room for Keller’s old-earth, progressive-creationist, theistic evolution."  

In his book, Malachi Martin highlights an important case involving David, a Catholic priest who became obsessed with the evolutionary scientism of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. Teilhard's destructive influence is widespread today within transnational Trans-humanist circles, the U.N., the Catholic Church, and increasingly within the Protestant Church.

In "Teilhard de Chardin: Trojan Horse of Vatican II/Heretic Extraordinaire," Dr. J. P. Hubert wonders whether based on Teilhard's admission of a mystical encounter if his evolutionary science was satanically inspired. Teilhard describes his strange encounter:

"The man was walking in the desert...when the Thing swooped down on him. Then, suddenly, a breath of scorching air passed across his forehead, broke through the barrier of his closed eyelids; an irresistible rapture took possession of him....mightily refashioning the enfeebled fibres of his being. And at the same time the anguish of some superhuman peril oppressed him, a confused feeling that the force which had swept down upon him was equivocal, turbid, the combined essence of all evil and goodness. You called me: here I am grown weary of abstractions, of attenuations, of the wordiness of social life, you wanted to pit yourself against Reality entire and untamed. I was waiting for you in order to be made holy. And now I am established on you for life, or for death....He who has once seen me can never forget me: he must either damn himself with me or save me with himself. O you who are divine and mighty, what is your name? Speak."

Hubert concludes that Teilhardism is,

"...no doubt of Satanic origin – a true "religion of man," if ever there was one."

America's Unfolding Spiritual Catastrophe

For over eighty-five years, America has been incrementally conquered by the same insanity-inducing demon of madness, hatred and violence that earlier took over Russia, China, Germany, and Italy.

This demon is mainly embodied within Enlightenment ideologies such as rationalism, progressivism, Darwinism, evolutionism, and socialism.  America's "scientifically endarkened" progressive Ruling Class is deeply oppressed and possessed by these evil isms.  Having rejected the biblical Triune God and the religious heritage of our civilization, they embrace instead evil ideologies of which Communism and Socialism are logical expressions. A new world order is what they seek, but in order that it can emerge, the still remaining remnants of America's Christian-based culture must be completely destroyed.

What this means is that the spiritual catastrophe that unfolded in the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany is unfolding on America's stage.

Can this catastrophe be averted?

Repentance: The Only Way

Returning to David, prior to his obsession with Teilhardism he was destined to become a professor of anthropology at a Catholic university. But under the influence of Teilhardism, he came to see that the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, Adam and Eve as the first man and woman and parents of all mankind who fell and passed on Original Sin to all human beings were utterly contrary to modern scientific thinking and evolution.

Therefore David taught anthropology from a modern "evolutionary science" perspective, even going so far as to exclude traditional presentations of doctrines about creation ex nihilo and Original Sin. But after introducing Teilhardism to his students, doubts arose when he observed the breathtaking transformative effects of this teaching upon Jonathan, one of his students, a priest who now insisted that all the sacraments are "...no more than expressions of man's natural unity with the world around him."

David's eyes were suddenly opened and he saw clearly for the first time that Teilhardism exalted man as an animal and pictured,

"God as no more than the very bowels of earth and sky and the spatial distances of the universe with all its expanding galaxies." (Martin, p. 107)

Meanwhile, Jonathan left the church and quickly founded his own cult among wealthy Manhattan families. He preached that the universe and all people were evolving as 'one' in a naturally occurring mystical union which he called "Abba Father." (p. 127)

Martin writes that Jonathan had come under the dominion of an evil spirit and David was called in to exorcise him. However, the demon possessing Jonathan ridiculed David, saying they both believed the same things, therefore if Jonathan needed exorcism David needed it more.

Reeling in shock, David was led to an agony of soul-searching over the course of many weeks during which he re-examined and finally repented of the intellectual arrogance that led him to embrace Teilhardism and the "higher criticism" of Scriptures that reduced the Revealed Word to myth, allegory and delusion and the death of Jesus to an insignificant event of the evolutionary past rather than,

"...an ever present source of personal forgiveness and unshakable hope for any future." (p. 149)

According to Martin, the evil spirit who had nearly succeeded in killing David's faith now taunted him that to return to faith would entail slavery of mind and will. But when a repentant David deliberately rejected the demon's taunts,

"...a great and breathtaking dimension full of relief....flooded his mind and will and imagination....And when he now looked at the world of nature around him...and heard the song of a mockingbird nearby, he received it no longer as he had while a Teilhardian evolutionist, as 'intimations of molecules endlessly regrouping,' but rather 'of endless life for each person, and of love without a shadow." (pp. 163, 165)

Speaking through Nietzsche, the evil spirit calling itself Zarathustra had declared the death of the Christian God on behalf of all willful unbelievers, but now for David, "He's alive and I'm forgiven!" His faith in God, Christ, the Holy Spirit and Scripture restored, David was ready to exorcise the evil spirit who possessed Jonathan. He did so,

"...in the name of God who created him (Jonathan) and you (evil spirit), and of Jesus of Nazareth who saved him! You will depart and get back to the uncleanness and agony you chose." (p. 169)

The Pope, Extraterrestrials, Evolution, Islam, & the Coming New World Order

According to the traditional Catholic Family News, in 2007, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Cardinal of Buenos Aires, Argentina, invited the visiting Episcopal Bishop William Swing,

"... to bring his assorted syncretist colleagues to the Cathedral for an interfaith service with him. Swing’s group was part of the United Religions Initiative, and the purpose of the syncretic worship was to celebrate the URI’s 10th anniversary of its installation in Latin America." (Pope Francis and the United Religions Initiative, Cornelia R. Ferreira, Catholic Family News, 09/09/14)

Investigative reporter Lee Penn, a Catholic ex-Marxist, author of "False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion" writes that the most ambitious organization in today’s interfaith movement is the United Religions Initiative (URI), founded by William Swing, the Episcopal Bishop of California.

Penn reports that the URI is to a significant extent animated by New Age Luciferic-spirituality and adds that evolution, openly affirmed by Pope Francis, is absolutely central to New Age theology. 

For all forms of evolutionary thinking God is irrelevant:

 "If He exists, He has nothing essential to do with a world which has evolved out of its own inner forces and thus is a law unto itself. The God-hypothesis is thus only retained by persons who are trying to maintain a formal but nonessential relationship between Christianity and evolution." (The Mythology of Science, by Rousas John Rushdoony, p. 27)

When Pope Francis addressed the Pontifical Academy of Sciences at the Vatican he affirmed the Big Bang (Cosmic Egg) and evolution.  Evolution is an inverted exegesis that deconstructs and reduces man in the spiritual image of the Trinity to evolved hominid, negates the Fall, and makes the Son of God (John 1:10) responsible for evil and suffering.   As well, because evolution posits relentless change it is a form of relativism or nihilism that abominates the Revealed Word of God.  Furthermore, the Pope endorsed the view that extraterrestrial life,

"....which he refers to as “beings of the universe” - has evolved in ways that is consistent with the plans of “God the creator.” He explained how the Catholic Church views the Big Bang and evolution as scientific processes underpinned by “the plan of the creator.” Pope Francis has officially moved the Catholic Church away from the idea of “God the creator..." (Pope endorses evolution of alien life & UFO activity as part of God's plan, Michael Salla, The Examiner, Oct. 28, 2014)

United Religions Initiative, Evolution & Extraterrestrials

The URI is a United Nations project:

" It was heralded in June 1995 by Bishop Swing at the occult, earth-worshipping interfaith service he was invited to conduct for the UN, honoring the 50th anniversary of the signing of the UN Charter. Attending the service in San Francisco’s Episcopal Grace Cathedral were political luminaries and representatives of all religions, including Britain’s Princess Margaret, Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa, Polish President Lech Walesa, UN Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Archbishop Renato Martino (Vatican nuncio to the UN), and Archbishop John Quinn of San Francisco." (ibid, Ferreira, Catholic Family News, 09/09/14)

The URI is meant to be for the world's nature religions, paganized Christianity, and modern mystery religions what the United Nations is for all nations of the world.  Its purpose is to be the World Church, the Universal One-Spirituality for the coming New World Order, a pantheistic global community comprising a one-world government and one-world religion or church.  

According to Penn, the URI is a syncretic stew of evolutionary Christianity, Luciferian Theosophy, Spiritism, revamped Ancient Mysteries, Wicca, Goddess worship, neo-paganism and adulation of Lucifer. (False Dawn: The United Religions Initiative, Globalism, and the Quest for a One-World Religion, Lee Penn, p. 437)

The URI has attracted a disparate group of activists and powerful supporters. For example, the liberal Catholic theologian Hans Kung, the Dalai Lama, progressive churchmen from the People's Republic of China, pro-gay evolutionary Episcopalians, radical Muslims, feminist witches, super wealthy capitalist foundations, the Club of Rome, the Temple of Understanding and the Lucis Trust, formerly called Lucifer Publishing. Prominent supporters of the URI and globalism include occultist Robert Muller (former UN assistant secretary general), 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 spirit revelations channeled through Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Muller, Marx Hubbard, and Neale Donald Walsh, among others. Penn notes that all together they form a comprehensive anti-Gospel setting forth a progressive vision of spiritualized totalitarianism that includes:

1. Praise for Lucifer as the light-bearer and giver of wisdom.

2. Proclaiming that we humans are gods and that death is not real

3. Advocacy for extreme population control, including eugenics and euthanasia

4. Utter contempt for traditional religions — with concentrated scorn directed at faithful Judaism, orthodox evangelical Protestantism, and orthodox Roman Catholicism

5. Forecasting a pending (and for them, desirable) "selection" of mankind, in which the progressives enter the New Age and the 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)

Speaking through Hubbard, her spirit guide "Christ" prophesied in 1995 that the Rider of the Pale Horse will use the "sword" as one of his means to "kill those who choose to remain self-centered." (ibid, p. 322)

Revelations from the gods of this world

Speaking through Alice Bailey, the demon-master Djwhal Khul predicted back in the 1940s that a spiritual hierarchy would:

"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," spirit "Masters will walk openly among men...openly guiding and directing the affairs of humanity." (False Dawn, p. 262)

From the spirit-channeled revelations called Course in Miracles taught by New Age High Priestess Oprah Winfrey to the spirit-revelations of Neale Donald Walsh, and revelations received from the Space Brothers by UFO contactees, spirits going by a variety of names are indeed speaking and "sharing secrets"....in local bookstores, movies and right on TV. 

Moving from the Royal Society (the national academy of science in the UK) to NASA, the European Space Agency,  UN office for Outer Space Affairs,  Pope Francis and the Vatican's progressive astronomers, excited discussions abound, all centered upon the existence of highly evolved Space Brothers (aliens) and their anticipated arrival here on earth. Lord Martin Rees, President of the Royal Society announced that aliens may be "staring us in the face" in a form unrecognizable to humans. (Official Disclosure: Prepare for Contact, Donna Anderson, officialdisclosure.com)

Longtime UFO researchers however, are no longer excited but alarmed. Their research shows that modern alien abductions resemble ancient stories of demons and demonic possession. The similarity was not lost on UFO research-scientist John Keel:

"Demonology is not just another crackpot-ology. It is the ancient and scholarly study of the monsters and demons who have...coexisted with man throughout history....The manifestations and occurrences described in this imposing literature are similar, if not..identical, to the UFO phenomenon. Victims of demonomania (possession) suffer the very same medical and emotional symptoms as the UFO contactees..." (Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection, Gary Bates, p. 260)

Ominous Harbingers

In 1994, the Vatican hosted part of its Sixth General Assembly, the first interfaith conference ever held at the Holy See. Speakers included John Paul, several cardinals, Hans Küng and liberation theologian Gustavo Gutierrez:

"Unlike Pope John Paul’s indirect support of the one-world church, Cardinal Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, the future Pope Francis, in the style we have now come to expect, had no qualms about ignoring the existing Vatican position. He openly encouraged the United Religions — an ominous harbinger of the direction of his papacy?" (ibid, Ferreira, Catholic Family News)

First it was Bishop Swing and the U.N.'s Interfaith Initiative, then evolution, Big Bang, and man as evolved hominidNow under Pope Francis Catholics are expected to embrace Islam as a religion of peace despite that Islam reduces Jesus Christ to a mortal and Allah is an impersonal singularity knowable only to mystical Imams, meaning Islam is peaceful if and when Imams say it is.  (Is there Room in the Catholic Church for those who don't Believe Islam is a Religion of Peace? Robert Spencer, FrontPageMagazine, Aug. 15, 2016)

Behind the backs of undiscerning yet faithful Protestants and Roman Catholics a global interfaith leviathan influenced and directed by a hierarchy of spirits and consisting of progressive Roman Catholics, Protestants, Muslims, "gays," neo-pagans, witches, and occultists is positioning itself as the spiritual face of a globally pantheist NWO preparing the way for the Antichrist.  

Isn't it time to wake up and ask what accord the Bride of Christ has with Belial (Interfaith, Big Bang, evolutionary cosmogonies, fallen angels posing as extraterrestrials, Islam)? Or what portion a believer shares with unbelievers?   2 Cor. 6:15

The Devil and the Genesis Problem

One of the devil's greatest achievements in our age of biological science and evolutionary thinking has been to convince natural science-and-evolution worshipping Westerners to believe that all that exists is the evolving universe of matter and energy (naturalism).   The only problem, and it’s a really big one because unresolvable, is that though evolutionists have tried several different anti-creation models of the universe none can account for life, conscious life, and information.  Additionally, recent research has shot them full of holes, leaving evolutionists with the hated Big Bang model.

In a 2012 editorial, "The Genesis Problem," New Scientist editors admit that physicists have been fighting a rearguard action against the Big Bang theory for decades, largely because they believe it has theological overtones. After all, if you have an instant of creation, don't you need a creator?

If modern physicists understood the pagan and occult implications of the Big Bang model their fears would be put to rest. The seedbed of Big Bang speculations are ancient global cosmic events described by Eastern Advaitans and Greek nature sages as Cosmic Eggs. One Hindu belief was that Brahman (the Void or energy field) spontaneously generated itself as something like a seed or singularity about 4.3 billion years ago and then evolved under its’ own power by which it expanded and formed all that exists: 

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

In this way of thinking, the entire universe, spirit, life, the gods, human beings, and everything else, came about by a process of emanation (or unfolding, emergence or evolution) from an energy field called Brahman. Just as waves form across the surface of the ocean, so the Void forms upon itself successive waves (emanations) of particles (particle theory) that in turn emanate further entities and so on, with all of these entities interacting within an extraordinary network or great chain of being consisting of downward-descending self-contained planes of existence, a top-down hierarchy of astral plane realities (multiverse theory) arranged vertically. Each higher plane of existence emanates the one below it through a mechanical process, thus each plane stands in the position of god-force to the one below. Therefore creation is not creation ex nihilo, as the Genesis account teaches, but mechanical emanation out of the Void.

In India, the Void and the doctrine of evolution/reincarnation/karma was thoroughly established from ancient times. It was expounded first in the Upanishads (c. 1000 BC - AD 4), the philosophical-mystical texts held to be the essence of the Vedas.  Moreover, the "science" and "psychology" behind the idea that mind and information evolve from chemicals can be found in the yogic science of Ayurveda and Hatha Yoga which outlines in both modern and ancient texts the glandular and neurological basis of Enlightenment. (ibid, Griffith)

Variations on the theme of the evolving universe of matter and energy were held by ancient Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks and Romans in the West and the Upanishads and other mystical pantheists in the East.  This ancient occult pagan belief is naturalism, which is of the worldview of monism.  Monism is held in common by pantheism, materialism and spiritualism and dates back to pagan antiquity and was or is taught by all non-biblical thought systems   

Naturalism means on one hand that the supernatural Tri-personal Holy God who spoke creation into existence ex nihilo,  man as His spiritual image-bearer, the Fall, hell, and the devil and his evil minions either do not exist or are myths from man’s pre-scientific past.   On the other hand, highly evolved deep space beings---themselves the emergent product of the universal life force (aka the Force, Zoë, evolution, vril, serpent power, seething energies of Lucifer) acting on matter almost certainly exist according to prominent scientist Stephen Hawking and many others.

Hawking warns against contact with deep space aliens because he believes that since they would be a very highly evolved life-form they would view human kind as a primitive life-form to be conquered and used as slaves or worse. 

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker also believes in the existence of aliens.  The author of "The Color Purple" is a disciple of David Icke, thus like him she believes the world is run by shape-shifting reptilian aliens who practice mind control from the moon.   In his book, 'Human Race Get off Your Knees: The Lion Sleeps No More' Icke describes how the human mind is controlled from the moon which he claims is actually a “gigantic spacecraft” which sends us a

fake reality broadcast... in much the same way as portrayed in the Matrix movie trilogy."  ("Prize-winning author Alice Walker gives support to David Icke on Desert Island Discs," Liam O'Brien, independent.uk, Sunday 19 May 2013)

Depending on which camp extraterrestrial believers fall into, they either view aliens with great fear and horror or as the saviors of mankind who will rescue the earth in the process.   The Vatican's astronomer Dr. Guy Consolmagno, an avowed evolutionist and self-confessed science fiction fan said he would even be happy to baptize an alien.   (I’d love to baptize ET, says Vatican’s stargazer, dailymail.co.uk, 25 January, 2011)

Other Christian UFO believers have rapture-type events predicted for the future while many others are tormented by waking-visions and nightmares by what one man describes as demons,

"(and) the feeling of paralysis and being incapable of  speaking. All I could do in such a situation was mentally pray in Jesus name for deliverance. I would then feel the ‘presence’ leave and I’d wake up." ("Aliens, evolution and the occult," Gary Bates, creation.com, 24 February 2007)

Bates notes that he has heard many such testimonies and today increasing numbers of people are having very similar experiences with demons and evil spirits masquerading as aliens.

The Myth of Extraterrestrials

In his book, "Scientific Mythologies," James A. Herrick traces the highly evolved 'aliens from outer-space' idea back to certain Renaissance astrologers, occult Hermetic-Cabbalists, and mystics such as Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) who claimed to not only receive telepathic secrets from spirits but to have visited populated planets during self-hypnosis induced mystical experiences.

Swedenborg's mystical experiences and visits to planets bear a striking similarity to those of ex-guru Rabindranath R. Maharaj. Now a committed follower of Jesus Christ, Maharaj describes his mystical encounters with gods on other planets:

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

Swedenborg's influence is far-reaching. His disciples run the gamut from Kant to the occult theosophist Madame Blavatsky and psychologist J.B. Rhine together with a vast array of science fiction writers (i.e., Arthur C. Clarke, H.G. Wells, Ray Bradbury, and Steven Spielberg), contemporary spiritists and numerous evolutionary scientists.

Over time, Swedenborg's astral plane travels gave birth to what Herrick dubs "The Myth of the Extraterrestrial." As far back as the seventeenth century enthusiastic science fiction writers were imagining "the intelligent extraterrestrial visitor" and preparing the public to accept their existence. And accept them they have, for the twentieth century has witnessed a veritable population explosion in the alien domain, said Herrick. (p. 43)

Indeed, many UFO messages have been received and channeled by contactees (mediums) who claim to be receiving special revelations from our ‘space brothers.’   Some of these 'revelations' have even become the basis of block-buster movies featuring reptilian, grey, and humanoid Nordic extraterrestrials.

Tragically, because science fiction has become our national myth and evolution (the universal life force) is widely accepted throughout the West and taught in Western schools and many seminary's as science, secularized high-school children actually believe there must be some kind of evolutionary Star Wars-like ‘force’  behind the universe.   Along with many deluded atheist scientists, Hollywood liberals, and like-minded progressives, some students even believe that highly evolved and technologically advanced aliens seeded life on earth.  

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

Davies has written seriously about the possibility of "alien bioengineering" that could be detected in the DNA of life on earth and suggests that citizen scientists and school students be enlisted to help search for evidence. (An Alien Code Close to Home: Seeking ET Beyond the Radio Silence, Astrobiology Magazine, Jeremy Hsu, 10/27/2011)

Pudritz theorizes that humans and aliens may share the same DNA which itself could be part of a universal structure

"of the first genetic codes anywhere...." (Why Aliens Might Look like You, Eddie Wren, dailymail.co.uk/ June 11, 2012)

Crick proposes a theory called "directed panspermia," the idea that,

"...life on earth may have begun when aliens from another planet sent a rocket ship containing spores to seed the earth."

Like all other dead-end evolutionary cosmologies, Crick’s theory only pushes the unresolvable problem of the origin of life out into deep space:

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

In a big picture sense, the whole realm of UFO beliefs is a religious idea built upon evolution, yet another religious idea said Bates:

The common denominator of both camps is the belief that evolution has occurred for countless eons on the earth and all over the universe. This point cannot be  emphasized strongly enough—it is the basis for virtually all belief in alien life, whatever form one thinks that life may take.”  (ibid, Aliens, evolution and the occult)

Extraterrestrials: Lucifer’s Elite Troops

Dr. Kurt Koch (1913-1987) is a highly respected German theologian who pastored, counseled and delivered people suffering from the occult and demonic bondage throughout the world, covering sixty-five countries and five continents.  In “Occult ABC,” Koch identifies extraterrestrials as Lucifer’s elite troops.  Even though UFO’s were seen in previous centuries, today’s UFO’s are heralds of the end-time. They appear most frequently in countries where the cult of Satan flourishes and their most obvious purpose is to destroy faith in Christ and the Bible and replace it with hell-born wisdom.   Lucifer is sending his elite troops ahead:

He is arming for the final battle.”  (pp. 341-342)

  "....blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it." Luke 11:28

In "Wisdom and Foolishness," Dr. Harry Reeder, senior minister of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Ala. writes that God's Word reveals two types of wisdom.  The first is worldly wisdom which is "earthly, unspiritual, demonic."  This hell-derived wisdom leaves in its wake chaos, brokenness, factions, death, and destruction.  The second is wisdom from above, granted by the Triune God to those who ask for it:

"It is found in His word, and it is accessed by hearing that Word faithfully preached and then embedding it into our lives through obedience."  (Biblical Dichotomies, Tabletalk, p. 19)

The first wisdom is not of God but of the creative imagination of man run wild.  It is,

"… actually 'the foolishness of man' masquerading as wisdom and propagated by man-made religions and a myriad of 'isms'---humanism, progressivism, materialism, consumerism, secularism, etc." 

Of all the foolishness of man masquerading as wisdom today, there is no more destructive and demonic than evolutionism.  Evolutionism is hell-derived metaphysical sophistry pretending to be factual science which for millions of deluded seculars and their evolutionary theist counterparts has effectively become a new religion that supplants the Revealed Word of God:

"...the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."  2 Cor. 4:4

Over eighteen hundred years ago the Apostle Paul foretold all of this,

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.”  (I Timothy 4:1)

(James 3:15) Evolutionism: the Hell-Born Foolishness of Man

In "Wisdom and Foolishness," Dr. Harry Reeder, senior minister of Briarwood Presbyterian Church in Birmingham, Ala. writes that God's Word reveals two types of wisdom.  The first is worldly wisdom which is "earthly, unspiritual, demonic."  This hell-derived wisdom leaves in its wake chaos, brokenness, factions, death, and destruction.  The second is wisdom from above, granted by God to those who ask for it:

"It is found in His word, and it is accessed by hearing that Word faithfully preached and then embedding it into our lives through obedience."  (Biblical Dichotomies, Tabletalk, p. 19)

On the other hand, worldly wisdom is not of the Triune God but of man:

" (it is) actually 'the foolishness of man' masquerading as wisdom and propagated by man-made religions and a myriad of 'isms'---humanism, progressivism, materialism, consumerism, secularism, etc." 

Of all of the foolishness of man masquerading as wisdom today, there is no more destructive and demonic than evolutionism.  Evolutionism is metaphysical sophistry (evolutionary scientism) pretending to be factual science, and there is nothing factual about it as even Karl Popper (1902-1994), a British philosopher and a professor at the London School of Economics admitted. Because he is regarded as one of the greatest philosophers of science of the 20th century, what Popper had to say about evolutionism, and Darwinism in particular, is of utmost importance to the increasingly ugly war being waged by evolutionists and their theological counterparts against faithful creationists.

Though Popper was an evolutionist, he nevertheless honestly stated that Darwinism is not a testable scientific theory but rather a metaphysical research program. By this he means that not only is Darwinism metaphysical (spiritual), but so are its' two most important foundations, classical empiricism and the observationalist philosophy of science that grew out of it.

Empiricism is a theory of knowledge that contradicts and refutes itself by asserting that human knowledge comes only or primarily via sensory experience rather than the mind ( spirit or thought life, conscience, will) while observationalism asserts that human knowledge and theories must be based on empirical observations....instead of the mind. For this reason, Popper argued strongly against empiricism and observationalism, saying that scientific theories and human knowledge generally, is conjectural or hypothetical and is generated by the creative imagination.
 
Where they speak frankly, evolutionists not only admit their fear and hatred of the Triune God of Revelation who spoke all things into existence ex nihilo but confess that their so-called 'scientific theories,' the products of their imaginations, are foolishness:
 
"...one belief that all true original Darwinians held in common, and that was their rejection of creationism, their rejection of special creation. This was the flag around which they assembled and under which they marched.... The conviction that the diversity of the natural world was the result of natural processes and not the work of God was the idea that brought all the so-called Darwinians together in spite of their disagreements on other of Darwin's theories. (One Long Argument,1991, p. 99, Ernst Mayr, 1904–2005, Professor of Zoology at Harvard University)

"We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is an absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door." ("Billions and Billions of Demons," Richard Lewontin (b. 1929), PhD Zoology, Alexander Agassiz Research Professor at Harvard University)

Recognized as one of the 50 most influential scientists in the world, Dr. James Tour, a professing Christian and prominent chemist does not believe in the 6-day Creation account, the narrative history of the book of Genesis. He embraces long ages (old earth) and accepts the dating methods  because he cannot understand how God could have meant 6 ordinary days if He did not create the sun until Day 4, because there would be no sun to measure off the first 3 days.  Thus  he has rejected the authority of Scripture, which Jesus Himself believed and quoted from. Like so many other evolutionary theologians and progressive creationists Tour has allowed the opinions of fallen men to re-interpret Scripture for him.
Moreover, Tour confirms that most scientists do not understand how evolution could explain the existence of life nor its complexity:
 
Let me tell you what goes on in the back rooms of science—with National Academy members, with Nobel Prize winners...I have sat with them, and when I get them alone, not in public—because it’s a scary thing, if you say what I just said—I say, ‘Do you understand all of this, where all of this came from, and how this happens?’ ”  (The revolt against Darwinism, John G. Hartnett, 11 December 2014 , creation.com)
 
The answer he inevitably receives is: “No.”
 
Every time that I have sat with people who are synthetic chemists, who understand this, they go, ‘Uh-uh. Nope.’ ”
 
 Tour adds:
 
 “And if they’re afraid to say ‘yes’, they say nothing. They just stare at me, because they can’t sincerely do it.”
 
If evolution cannot account for life’s existence, then how did life originate?  Though Tour's unbelief has him siding with hard-core evolutionists he  nevertheless believes that the most reasonable answer is simple

I believe fundamentally that God created us all..."

 Evolutionism is a fraud.  It is metaphysical sophistry, and this is why Mark Armitage, a scientist at California State University—Northridge (CSUN) was fired after he discovered soft tissue on a Triceratops fossil, an obvious refutation of the tens of millions of years story necessary to the evolution myth.  
 
Armitage worked as a researcher and supervised the school’s electron microscope laboratory. He was also a member of several scientific organizations, including the Microscopy Society of America, the American Society of Parasitologists, and the Southern California Academy of Sciences, but God-hating evolutionists forced him out, declaring  “We will not tolerate your religion in this department!” (‘We Will Not Tolerate Your Religion!’ School Fires Scientist for Questioning Evolution, Garrett Haley, Christian News Network, July 24, 2014)
 
Again, evolution is a fraud, as Colin Patterson attests.  Patterson writes that after studying evolutionary theory for many years, he finally "woke up and realized that all my life I had been duped into taking evolutionism as revealed truth in some way." Patterson goes on to say:

"One of the reasons I started taking this anti-evolutionary view, or let's call it a non- evolutionary view, was last year I had a sudden realization for over twenty years I had thought I was working on evolution in some way. One morning I woke up and something had happened in the night and it struck me that I had been working on this stuff for twenty years and there was not one thing I knew about it. That's quite a shock to learn that one can be so misled so long. Either there was something wrong with me or there was something wrong with evolutionary theory. Naturally, I know there is nothing wrong with me, so for the last few weeks I've tried putting a simple question to various people and groups of people....Question is: Can you tell me anything you know about evolution, any one thing, that is true? I tried that question on the geology staff at the Field Museum of Natural History and the only answer I got was silence. I tried it on the members of the Evolutionary Morphology Seminar in the University of Chicago, a very prestigious body of evolutionists, and all I got there was silence for a long time and eventually one person said, 'I do know one thing — it ought not to be taught in high school.'"   ("Evolutionism and Creationism" November 5, 1981, p. 2, Colin Patterson (1933–1998), Senior Paleontologist at British Museum of Natural History)
 
Millions of people, including great numbers of professing Christians, Protestant theologians and even Pope Benedict and Pope Francis have been deceived by the foolishness of man masquerading as science.  On July 24, 2009 Pope Benedict XVI delivered a homily in northern Italy's Cathedral of Aosta before Vespers. Toward the end of his homily he praised the French Jesuit heretic Pierre Teilhard de Chardin as a model for priests, attributing to him the idea of a cosmic liturgy, which he said was something they should aim to achieve:

"So our address to God becomes an address to ourselves: God invites us to join with him, to leave behind the ocean of evil, hatred, violence and selfishness and to make ourselves known, to enter into the river of his love...."Let Your Church offer herself to You as a living and holy sacrifice. This request, addressed to God, is made also to ourselves. It is a reference to two passages from the Letter to the Romans. We ourselves, with our whole being, must be adoration and sacrifice and, by transforming our world, give it back to God." (Benedict XVI Praises Cosmic Liturgy of Teilhard de Chardin; traditioninaction.org)
 
Evolution: the Universal Energy

 It's at a shallow level that evolutionism is passed off as factual science to those who receive it without question.  It's at a deeper level however, that evolutionism's occult power is found and wielded by magicians like Teilhard de Chardin.  Though Teilhard (1881-1955) passed himself off as an evolutionary scientist he was actually a New Age Hindu-style pantheist and occult Hermetic and alchemical magician who on behalf of his Great Work, sought fusion of opposites, for example, of Jesus Christ with both Shiva (The Destroyer) and Lapis Philosophorum (enlightenment, elixir of life), and himself with Omega point (Quantum Void, Brahman), the energy field worshipped as the substance of God.
 
Western esotericism, or occultism, is the search for and study of an unseen reality. It is arcane knowledge of the hidden and its' powers. This arcane knowledge is meant only for certain people such as Teilhard de Chardin and fellow practitioners of the magic way.

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, esoteric evolutionary biology and occult pagan systems such as Gnosticism, Cabbala, Theosophy, Wicca, Satanism, Thelema and neo-paganism.

A general definition is offered by Nicholas Goodrick-Clarke:

"Occultism has its basis in a religious way of thinking, the roots of which stretch back into antiquity and which may be described as the Western esoteric tradition. Its principal ingredients have been identified as Gnosticism, the Hermetic treatises on alchemy and magic, Neo-Platonism, and the Kabbalah, all originating in the eastern Mediterranean area during the first few centuries AD." (The Occult Roots of Nazism, Good-Rick-Clarke, p. 17)

Under cover of 'modern science,' evolutionary biology is actually arcane gnosis arising from a religious outlook based in a philosophy of naturalism and programmatic alchemy. When asked why the layman should be interested, "...in so esoteric a subject as evolutionary biology," one of the leading evolutionists of our day, Professor S.J. Gould, candidly responded:
 
"Because it tells us where we came from, how we got here, and perhaps where we are going. Quite simply, it is science's version of Roots, except it is the story of us all." (The Religious Nature of Evolution Theory and its Attack on Christianity, John G. Leslie and Charles K. Pallaghy, Ph.D, creation.com)

Evolutionary biology's genesis account is an inverted exegesis, an ancient alchemical vision holding that billions of years ago lifeless chemicals were magically birthed when a fiery Cosmic Egg (Big Bang) inexplicably exploded. Then inert chemicals or star stuff magically combined and transcended themselves after a hundred or a thousand identical operations thereby allowing the miraculous transmutation of dead stuff into life. Once life miraculously arose from the dead, natural processes (evolutionary dynamics) were set in motion that after passage of vast ages supposedly eventuated in the arrival of man:

"If man has arrived at his present state as a result of natural processes rather than a supernatural will, he can learn to control these processes...The concept of evolution, which is now basic to the life sciences, has provided new and in some ways revolutionary answers to questions men have been asking for centuries. The two most important of these are, 'Why am I here, what is the purpose of human existence, and what is the nature of the world of life that surrounds us?" (Dobzhansky, T., Ayala, F.J., Stebbins, G.L. and Valentine, J.W., Evolution, W.H. Freeman and Co., San Francisco, 1977)

Teilhard's goal was not mere control of hidden evolutionary powers but the ancient quest of alchemy to perfect the material world or cosmos thereby transmuting (deifying) himself by way of his own fusion with the Divine Energy variously known throughout the ancient and modern world as Serpent Power, Zoe, the Force, Vril, and Kundalini, for example.  According to occult lore, the Divine Energy evolves or emanates from the Watery Abyss, Void, Divine Mens, Omega, Brahman or Quantum Void – the energy field,

"...from which all material energies emanate." (The Meaning of the Magicians, Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier, p. 118)

Pauwels and Bergier's book heralded a new dawning of an age of alchemy. Like Carl Jung and Teilhard they understood the religious impulse of alchemy:

"For the alchemist, it must never be forgotten that power over matter and energy is only a secondary reality. The real aim of the alchemist's activities, which are perhaps the remains of a very old science belonging to a civilization long extinct, is the transformation of the alchemist himself, his accession to a higher state of consciousness...Everything is oriented towards the transmutation of man...his deification, his fusion with the divine energy... (and) as Teilhard put it: 'The real aim of physics should be to integrate Man as a totality in a coherent representation of the world." (ibid)

Alchemy is above all the ancient royal occult science of the secret initiates of Babylon, the gnostic magicians who sought esoteric knowledge in their quest to perform the great work. Mircea Eliade explains:

"The aim of the opus magnum (great work) was at once the freeing of the human soul and the healing of the cosmos....In the eyes of the alchemists, observes Jung, Christianity saved man but not nature. It is the alchemist's dream to heal the world in its totality; the Philosopher's Stone is conceived as the Filius Macrcosmoi who heals the world...The ultimate goal of the opus is Cosmic Salvation; for this reason, the Lapis Philosophorum is identified with Christ." (The Forge and the Crucible: The Origin and Structure of Alchemy, 1956, p. 225)

Teilhard began his great work by conjuring a New Religion:

"As you already know, what dominates my interest and my preoccupations is the effort to establish in myself and to spread around a new religion (you may call it a better Christianity) in which the personal God ceases to be the great Neolithic proprietor of former times, in order to become the soul of the world; our religious and cultural stage calls for this." (Lettres a Leontine Zanta, quoted by von Hildebrand in Trojan Horse in the City of God, 1967, p. 239)

He consciously abandoned the 'old' unscientific, anti-evolutionary form of Christian theism which held that Jesus Christ

"...is the beginning of the creation of God" (Apoc. 3:14), "the firstborn of every creature: For in Him were all things created in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible...He is before all, and by Him all things consist...that in all things He may hold the primacy." (Col. 1:15-18)

He had nothing but contempt for Scripture's six day creation account, the fall of Adam and Eve, Jesus Christ and His work on the cross, His bodily resurrection and ascension, and hope of eternal life in Paradise:

"...all those goody-goody romances about the saints and the martyrs! Whatever normal child would want to spend eternity in such boring company?" (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 584)

We need a 'new definition of holiness,' said Teilhard, one that is predicated upon science and evolutionary change rather than the outdated, restrictive "for other foundation no man can lay, but that which is laid; which is Christ Jesus." (1Cor 3:11) Henceforth, all theories, hypotheses, systems, faithful orthodox Christianity and Jesus Christ Himself must bow before the will of god-men and the instruments of their will--- esoteric science and evolution---if they are to be thinkable and true:

"The modern world is a world in evolution; hence the static concepts of the spiritual life must be rethought and the classical teachings of Christ must be reinterpreted." (ibid)

Toward the goal of Cosmic Salvation Teilhard subsumed Jesus Christ (John 1:1) into His own creation and secularized and paganized Christian theism to become the prophet of alchemy who has discovered that through fusion of universal evolutionism and the creative power of the Holy Trinity that the cosmos becomes divinely energized. In this way the magician promises to fulfill the ancient quest: the opus magnum. With this great power, said Teilhard:

"...I can increase the density of the divine atmosphere...that atmosphere in which it is always my one desire to be immersed...." (ibid)

Now that the cosmos is God, and the cosmos is evolving, then God too is in process of evolving, therefore,

"...the World...endomorphizes God, and that God....transforms himself as He incorporates us...All around us and within our own selves, God is in the process of changing...." (The Heart of the Matter, de Chardin, pp. 52-53)

In place of 'the earlier conception that God could create instantaneously,' the magician now teaches that God is both the Evolver and the object of evolution and,

"...cannot create except evolutively." (Christianity and Evolution, de Chardin, p. 179)

As with evolutionary theism and progressive creation, Teilhard's 'God' is not the omnipotent, omniscient, living, personal Triune God Who called everything into existence in six days, but an "it:"

"...God's power has not so free a field for its action as we assume; on the contrary...it labors to produce...it is always obliged, in the course of its creative effort, to pass through a whole series of intermediaries and to overcome a whole succession of inevitable risks..." (ibid, p.31)

The evolving "it" has deified human consciousness through three great leaps of evolution:

1. Cosmo genesis (Big Bang): the explosive birth of energy and matter

2. Biogenesis: alchemical transmutation of life from chemicals eventually followed by living forms

3. Noogenesis: the evolution of human consciousness which heralds the emergence of "cosmogenesis-God," the impersonal "it" that replaces,

"...the Father-God of two thousand years ago..." (ibid, p. 202)

Teilhard encouraged Christians to submit to the process of evolution because the promise of this living force is godhood through fusion with the substance of God:

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

In conclusion, evolutionism is an abomination of desolation.  It is metaphysical sophistry; sleight of hand; magic; serpent power, kundalini, zoe; Vril, Teilhard's Golden Calf.   It is the hell-born foolishness of man masquerading as science.

2 Tim. 3:5---Christless Christianity

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” (2 Timothy 3:5)

At the First Presbyterian Church of New York City on May 21, 1922, the liberal (evolutionary pantheist)  theologian Harry Emerson Fosdick  pleaded for tolerance of more liberal views of Christianity.  According to Fosdick, it is no longer necessary to believe in the sovereignty of the Triune God in history, the virgin birth, the inerrant Bible, or special creation and the Fall, hence Original Sin.  Accept evolutionary science, said Fosdick.  It can be received by the visible church without harm as can pluralism (all ways lead to 'heaven'). 

This message, with printing financed by New World Order globalist John D. Rockefeller, was sent out to 130,000 pastors and leaders. Its title was changed to “The New Knowledge and the Christian Faith.”

In response to Fosdick's plea for tolerance the Rev. Clarence Macartney of Arch Street Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania responded on July 13, 1922 with a sermon entitled “Shall Unbelief Win?”   In his summary of the points raised by Fosdick, Macartney said if they were valid then Christianity would be a Christianity of the opinions of men, and the principles and good purposes they favor leading to a Christianity without worship, a Christianity without God, and a Christianity without Jesus Christ.  Theological liberalism, said Macartney, is progressively transforming the church into a secular institution.  (“Shall Unbelief Win?” thisday.pcahistory.org )
 
Fifteen years before Fosdick's plea, Pope Pius X had issued a clear and compelling warning against modernism and its' most important doctrine, evolution  (liberal pantheist theology).  In the encyclical 'Pascendi Dominici Gregis'  the Pope uncompromisingly defined liberal theology and its most important doctrine evolution as heresy.
 
The Pope noted that  liberal "Christian" heretics are 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.

Translated: only the natural dimension exists (pagan monism) rather than the two interacting, interfacing dimensions, the natural and supernatural as the Bible affirms, thus logically, there is no living, personal Triune God, hence no Revealed Word, no Fall, no absolute Moral Law and no need of individual salvation.  Furthermore, since evolution implies continuous change and/or progress, "Christian" heretics also claim that transcendent immutable (unchanging) truths do not exist, therefore there is nothing immutable in the Bible, the Church and the two created sexes....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 pantheist monism conceptually dissolves the living, transcendent Christ into nature, everything becomes imaginatively infused with impersonal divine spirit resulting in a divine spark, Force, God-energy, or Christ-consciousness within man. Thus claim heretics, Christian theism itself lives and evolves, and must in fact be changed.

"Christian" change-agents further claim that all religions and belief systems are true (pluralism) because the divine-force suffuses and energizes all things. By extension of this perverse reasoning, Gaia (earth) is alive, global change and 'evolutionary science' are true, and pagan Gnosticism, Hermetic magic, Satanism, Wicca, Sharia, Luciferian Theosophy and Masonry are valid ways of reaching 'heaven.'  This satanically inverted reasoning is syncretism (moral relativism), the uniting of good and evil, truth and lie, the holy and the unholy. R.J. Rushdoony comments:

"Now syncretism is destructive of the human mind, of rationality...(A) man who wants to unite good and evil...has lost the capacity for clear thinking. His mind is darkened, clouded, fuzzed over, and incompetent....Man, by presuming to be god, has by that act destroyed the possibility of true thinking; from so radically false a premise, no valid conclusion can follow." ("Why Is Rick Warren Waffling?" Lee Duigon, Chalcedon)

Today many plausible sounding variants of Liberal theology exist such as Teilhardism, Progressive Creationism, and Evolutionary Christianity and we must not be deceived by their persuasive use of ultimately meaningless God and Christ words.

"For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?" John 5:46-47
 
And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. ”  Luke 24:27

2 Tim. 3:5  concerns liberal theologians of our day. They profess a false Christianity, a scientifically enlightened, evolutionary pantheist nature religion that observes the outward form (God and Christ words, church buildings, sacraments, vestments, religious services, good works, etc.) of “godliness” (that is, “religion”), but reject its supernatural power, that is, the Triune God of Revelation, special creation, Original Sin, Jesus Christ God incarnate (John 1:1) , the resurrection, second coming, miracles, regeneration, judgment, heaven, and hell, thus because they do not believe Moses they cannot believe the words of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Their desire is for the things of this world: lofty position, prestige, power, applause and trappings of scientific and religious professionalism because they are “lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God:"

"There is no one who claims that there is no God who is not infected by carnal desire or a lust for earthly power or the delightful madness of some showy spectacle.  They love such temporal things and seek their happiness in them.  They pursue the earthy objects of their desire wherever they lead and fear anyone who seems to have the power to take them away." (Augustine, On True Religion, 38, 69)

Evolutionary theologians fear faithful defenders of the Revealed Word and special creation and this is why they are at least as hostile and intolerant if not more so toward faithful defenders than are their evolutionary atheist and occult pantheist counterparts (Luciferians, god-men, goddesses, shaman, Satanists, witches, necromancers, and astrologers).

Over and across the entire denominational spectrum, it is the faithful, the ones who stand unmoving against the heresy of theological liberalism and its primary doctrine evolution who are harshly criticized, laughed-at, condemned and called mentally ill by theological liberals.   According to apostate Christless 'Christians,' the faithful are simplistic anti-science and evolution dogmatists.  They are stupid, narrow-minded bigots; cultural isolationists, and anti-intellectualists which the scientifically enlightened call,

“....the rejection of science,” and then refer to this as “textbook evidence of an unyielding ignorance on the part of the religious.” (Total Capitulation: The Evangelical Surrender of Truth, Dr. Mohler, October 25, 2011)

The contemporary organized church has for the most part capitulated, thus is torn with strife and distrust.  The over-riding issue is now between belief and unbelief: Is Christianity true or false, real or unreal?

What is deadly to the church, said R.C. Sproul, is when the external forms of religion are maintained while their substance is discarded. This we call practical atheism:

" Practical atheism appears when we live as if there were no God. The externals continue, but man becomes the central thrust of devotion as the attention of religious concern shifts away from man’s devotion to God to man’s devotion to man, bypassing God. The “ethic” of Christ continues in a superficial way, having been ripped from its supernatural, transcendent, and divine foundation." ("What is Practical Atheism?" R.C. Sproul, Ligonier, Jan. 12, 2015)

2 Tim. 3:5 is a warning urgently needed by wavering, yet still faithful, Bible-believing Christians. If they finally capitulate to the constant pressure brought to bear against them, they will ultimately surrender to damnable apostates. Many have already accepted the evolutionary system of “ages geology,” and this is tragic and dangerous. Rather than compromising with heretics and apostates, as many Christians today are inclined to do, Paul warns: “From such turn away!”

The Wicked Nanny: Symptom of America's Dying Soul

Diane Stretton is a live-in nanny hired by the Bracamonte family of Upland, Calif. She was hired in March to help Marcella Bracamonte care for three children ages 11, 4, and 1. In exchange for her work, Stretton was provided room and board.  A few months ago she stopped working and after finally being fired refused to leave the family's home. Not only has she imposed her own demands and requirements on the household but is threatening to sue the Bracamonte's.  (Jun 26, 2014, abcnews.go.com, By SARAH FIGALORA)

In desperation, the Bracamonte's called the police, but they'll do nothing on the grounds that nanny's refusal to leave is a civil matter,

"....generally, once somebody has established residency, you have to go through a formal eviction process."

Had Stretton made it known from the start that she had intentions of establishing residency in the Bracamonte's home they would never have hired her, let alone have allowed her to darken their doorway.   Stretton is obviously a conniving, mean-spirited, vindictive soul, and say the Bracamonte's, she has made our home a living hell.

According to St. Augustine, like all human beings, Stratton is 'cracked.'   Consider the love of human beings for all the vain,

"....and poisonous things that cause so many heartaches, troubles and fears, our joy in conflict, strife and war, and so many plots of enemies and sycophants.   Consider such things as fraud and theft and robbery; the pride we take in depravity, our envy and ambition. cruelty...murder, lawlessness and lust.  Think of all the shameless passions of the impure: fornication...adultery, incest...unnatural sins, rape and countless other filthy acts.  Consider the evil we do to each other: calumnies...cheating, lies...false witness, violence against persons and property.   Indeed, if anyone were to left to live as he pleased and to do what he desired, he would go through practically the whole gamut of sins listed above...those which I wrote down and others I forgot to mention."  (City of God, 22.22)

In our morally debauched society, the wicked nanny is but one of millions of morally disordered, rootless Americans produced by decades of evolutionary humanist (socialist/progressive) indoctrination in our schools, media, and culture.

In his essay, “The New Man,” Dr. Pedro Blas Gonzalez, Professor of Philosophy at Barry University, Miami, Florida, describes America’s rootless man as the product of nihilists. Nihilists have successfully depersonalized Westerners and Americans. They have destroyed the dignity, personhood 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, said Seraphim Rose. He is a rootless 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)

This rootless entity actually believes that he is evolving forward toward greater and greater spiritual perfection. 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 this light, Lloyd Marcus, the Tea Party Movement's most prominent African American, has reason to lament:

"Today, far too many Americans see no shame in living on government assistance or scamming the system....Even wIorse, the Administration portrays getting on welfare as the honorable thing to do. Dear Lord, what kind of nation are we becoming?  An unprecedented 47 million Americans are on food stamps which is riddled with fraud. The Obama Administration has added over 10,000 new oppressive job-killing regulations. Consequently, 90 million are unemployed and on unemployment which is also riddled with fraud. Here's another first for America, over 11 million are receiving disability benefits; riddled with fraud. Clearly, many believe working is for suckers when the government is handing out freebies.....In his War on Achievers, Obama used his bully pulpit to deflate business owners by saying, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that." Obama and his operatives use compassionate sounding terms such as "social justice" and "income inequality" to justify the government confiscating the earnings of achievers and redistributing it to non-achievers to win their votes. Despicable."  (A heartbreaking unspoken consequence of Obama, Lloyd Marcus, Renew America,June 27, 2014)

Under the pretense of compassion, fairness, equality, 'rights,' universal healthcare, fighting poverty and global change, protecting 'gay rights' (sodomy), and allowing unborn babies to be brutally dismembered on behalf of 'choice'  America's 'broken' law gives the power of death to the self-serving, morally corrupt few over the lives of the inconvenient and unwanted.   It forcibly takes property from one person and gives it to another.  In taking the wealth and property of the many and giving it to a favored few, broken law gives conniving, mean-spirited darkened souls like Diane Stretton the idea that she can move into and take over the Bracamonte's property, to impose herself on them, to terrorize and make shameless demands of them while she lives a parasitic life of ease at their expense. 

Fundamentally, broken law is legalized murder and plunder and  is common to socialists, communists and other nihilists of the totalitarian bent of mind who see crimes against humanity together with forcing everyone to be miserable as a way of putting an end to all conditions that make for covetousness and envy, their own first of all.

The Scourge of Covetousness and Envy

Whether the Founders were individually Christian or not they fully recognized that in light of man's sin nature, covetousness/envy could easily become a driving force in politics, so they designed the Constitution to protect our God-given rights of life, liberty and property from the grasping hand of a tyrannical government.  They never intended for law to assume the role of Big Brother granting man-invented 'rights' 'privileges' and 'entitlements' to certain favored groups or individuals:

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

They also affirmed that as all men are created spiritual equals in the eyes of the One God in three Persons, then life, worth, dignity and other unalienable property rights are conferred upon each human person at conception.  

In "Property," published in The National Gazette on March 29, 1792, James Madison clearly defines the meaning of a person’s God-given spiritual property, some of its’ temporal manifestations and the meaning and intent of just government as opposed to unjust government:

"He has a property....in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them."  "He has a property...in his opinions and the free communication of them."  "He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them." "He has property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person."

Property is,

"....a man's land, or merchandize, or money (and)  as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights. Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties or his possessions."

Government is instituted to protect property of every sort:

"This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own." (Samuel Rutherford, Lex Rex; lexrex.com)

The Constitution therefore, recognizes the divine nature of man's creation, that man is a person endowed by his personal Creator with spiritual property, a divine right to life and liberty, and the means of acquiring and possessing property. Hence our Republic recognizes Law is unchangeable because the Creator of "we the people" (and everyone else) is the Lawgiver:

"It is sufficiently obvious, that persons and property are the two great subjects on which Governments are to act; and that the rights of persons, and the rights of property, are the objects, for the protection of which Government was instituted. These rights cannot well be separated." (James Madison, Speech at the Virginia Convention, December 2, 1829)

How does one determine whether a law is just or unjust?

"A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law. To put it in the terms of St. Thomas Aquinas: An unjust law is a human law that is not rooted in eternal law and natural law." (Martin Luther King, Excerpts from his Letter from the Birmingham Jail, Apr. 16, 1963)

In keeping with Christian thought, George Washington and Benjamin Franklin connect personhood, virtue, self-control and property rights with morally-ordered freedom:

"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)

Conversely, they connect corruption, anarchy, and barbarism with man's sin nature:

"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. If "Thou shalt not covet" and "Thou shalt not steal" were not commandments of Heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society before it can be civilized or made free." (John Adams, A Defense of the American Constitutions, 1787, patriotpost.us)

Today the uniquely Christian view of man as a person because created in the spiritual image of the One God in three Persons together with the Biblical moral convictions underlying the cultural order have been undermined to the point of near collapse. 

Darwinism in particular and evolutionary science in general have destroyed the foundations of the Christian view of man, thereby reducing “we the people” to conscious products of evolution and by extension making our Constitution a worthless piece of trash.

There are two fundamentally different conceptions of science----one that is scientific and one that is not:

"In the first, science properly deals with reality, mostly in its physical manifestations.  It tries to understand the things that are---what they are, how they work and why..."  The other notion of science---the unscientific one---is an endeavor to....gain power...."   "Man becomes the ultimate master through the exercise of his will by the instrument of science; he makes all things according to his desires (and) assigns to them his purposes, and they have purposes only insofar as he assigns them.  They are nothing in themselves......This is science as ideology, as the construction of a false reality."    (Making Gay Okay: How Rationalizing Homosexual Behavior is Changing Everything, Robert R. Reilly, p. 117)

Evolutionary science, whether secular atheist, occult New Age, or 'Christian,' is the science of ideology, the will of fallen man exercised by the instrument of science.   By 1870 Christopher Langdell, dean of Harvard School of Law was exercising his will through the instrument of science by teaching that the nihilistic principles of evolution must be applied to the written opinion of judges. 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.” (Erwin Lutzer)

Evolutionary scientism rejects miraculous Special Creation and the Fall and teaches instead an inverted exegesis positing billions of years of evolutionary ascent of life from primordial matter, man from lower creatures and an eternally expanding cosmos.

This upside-down view leads to a philosophy of moral relativism (no right way, no wrong way) because if men were once something else, star dust or a genderless blob of matter and then later on lizards and even later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are men going to become something else but nothing can be said about transgender, ‘gay,’ pederasty, pedophilia, and lesbianism since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter generated by a Big Bang which may or may not involve a god-word shaped and controlled by the will of the theologians who are its' inventers.

As evolutionary scientism is naturalistic it ultimately lacks a source for life, consciousness, and soul, thus whether atheist, New Age or 'Christian' all permutations are merely different expressions of anti-human nihilism which makes man equal to or lower than the nonhuman.

This serves as a license for all manner of crimes against humanity, especially the weakest, the hated, envied, despised and inconvenient.  Between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, evolutionary naturalism led to the brutal murder of in excess of 160,000,000 "unevolved" men, women, and children.

Today, naturalism and evolutionary thinking are taken for granted throughout the college curriculum, just as it is in all aspects of modern thought and experience, especially within the progressive liberal community. Evolution not only undergirds biological and earth sciences, but also Freudian and Jungian psychology, anthropology, law, sociology, politics, economics, the media, arts, medicine, and all other academic disciplines as well as occult New Age spirituality and all permutations of liberal theology and its primary doctrine evolution.

Progressive liberal theology has stripped the Bible of its miraculous, historical and literal elements, thereby allowing it to be considered as one book of myths among many. No longer is it generally believed that the Bible, especially the Genesis account is the objective revelation of the Triune God, thus man is not a sinner, neither is he a person because he is a conscious product of evolution. In the end, theological liberalism is nothing more than nihilistic humanism in theological dress.

Throughout America nihilist evolutionary conceptions trumpeted by the will of man as 'scientific fact' have finally reached saturation point in our government, law, media, education, healthcare, psychiatry, and increasingly within the whole body of the Church. This is why apostasy, atheism, agnosticism, occult paganism, suicide, lawlessness, pornography, drug use, mass murder, decadence, sodomy, abortion, and euthanasia have increased exponentially throughout America and the world.

America's Dying Soul

"No one needs to see films such as The Wolf of Wall Street or American Hustle to know that America is amputating its soul. Those who remember post-Christian Nazi Germany are grieving. They look at America’s demoralized church and ask: Can these bones live?  Ezekiel 37."    (Vishal Mangalwadi, founder-president of BOMI/Revelation Movement, an Indian philosopher and social reformer and author of The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization)

The soul of America is being amputated under the onslaught of Darwinism and theological liberalism with the following consequences:

1.The abandonment of the transcendent Triune God means abandonment of His eternally unchanging Law together with the unique Christian definition of person and everything built upon it---spiritual property, unalienable rights, and morality---making our founding documents fit for the trash bin of history.

2. Abandonment of  immutable truth and absolute morality means that narcissistic self-centered men and women like Obama and his minions and the wicked nanny are the measure of all things. This is why no one is safe, nor is their property, for our so-called political leadership, opinion and culture shapers, jurists, academics, bureaucracy and increasing numbers of theologians are self-righteous hypocrites, liars, crazies, and psychopaths. Some of them believe they are evolving into supermen, transcended masters and gods.

3. Abandonment of our exclusive Christian worldview has allowed our nation to disintegrate into moral and religious pluralism. Historically, pluralism has been a sign that tectonic change is on the horizon. In this case, it presages America's devastating transformation from its' Christian heritage to Sharia, superstitious paganism and irrational occult pantheist New Age, known politically as Agenda 21 but really spiritualized communism in a green dress.

4.  Powerful, influential occult New Agers, many of them under the influence of spirit guides (demons) are honeycombed within the UN, non-governmental agencies, and at every level of our government, academia, entertainment, media, and elsewhere and have been working towards this sea-change for a very long time now. In their eyes, the disintegration of America not only heralds the death of the hated Old Order (Christian based civilization) but the long-awaited quantum leap in evolution, the catastrophic chaos that utterly destroys the old order and ushers in the utopian 'golden age' of Aquarius.

The Way Forward

Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who repented and returned to the Christian faith and his personhood (spiritual being) in the Gulag, sets out a spiritual way forward:

“…the primary key to our being or non-being resides in each individual heart, in (its) preference for specific good or evil…this (is) the most reliable key we have. The social theories that promised so much have demonstrated their bankruptcy, leaving us at a dead end. The free people of the West could reasonably have been expected to realize that they are beset by numerous freely nurtured falsehoods, and not to allow lies to be foisted upon them so easily. All attempts to find a way out of the plight of today’s world are fruitless unless we direct our consciousness, in repentance to the Creator of all. Without this, no exit will be illumined, and we shall seek it in vain….We must…recognize the horror perpetrated not by some outside force, not by class or national enemies, but within each of us individually, and within every society. This is especially true of a free and highly developed society, for here in particular we have surely brought everything upon ourselves, of our own free will. We ourselves, in our daily unthinking selfishness, are pulling tight the noose (and) we can propose only a determined quest for the warm hand of God, which we have so rashly and self-confidently spurned. Only in this way can our eyes be opened to the errors of this unfortunate twentieth century and our hands be directed to setting them right.” (Life Under the Lidless Eye, pp. 38-39, Lee Penn, SCP Journal, Vol. 37:1-37:2, 2013)

In other words, evolutionary humanism in its every permutation is a cornucopia of devilish lies from which we must repent.  The Christian God is very much alive and though we are His spiritual image-bearers we are sinners.   In the words of Solzhenitsyn, evil cuts through the heart of every man and woman, bar none.

In his 1974 essay “Repentance and Self-Limitation in the Life of Nations,” Solzhenitsyn explains that the cure begins quite simply with,

“…..repentance and the search for our own errors and sin. We must stop blaming everyone else (and) always 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. For each and every individual. And every trend of social thought.” (ibid)

America's Rising Tyranny of Evil

In "The President Who Has Done the Most Damage" Dennis Prager writes that never before has he ever written or broadcast that our country is being seriously damaged by a president. So it is with great sadness that I write,
 
"....that President Barack Obama has done and continues to do major damage to America. The only question is whether this can ever be undone. This is equally true domestically and internationally." (Townhall.com,  Oct 29, 2013)    
 
According to Prager, Obama has mired the country in unprecedented levels of debt: about $6.5 trillion dollars in five years while with his Affordable Care Act he has made it impossible for hundreds of thousands, soon millions, of Americans to keep their individual or employee-sponsored group health insurance. He has stymied American medical innovation with an utterly destructive tax on medical devices and caused hundreds of thousands of workers to lose full-time jobs because of the health care costs imposed by Obamacare on employers. His Internal Revenue Service uses its unparalleled power to stymie and punish political dissent and his ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya. No one has taken responsibility.
 
Among presidents in modern American history, Obama has been a uniquely divisive force.  Rather than helping heal racial tensions, he has exacerbated them:
 
"He should have been reassuring black Americans that America is in fact the least racist country in the world (instead)  he echoed the inflammatory speech of professional race-baiters such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. He has also divided the country by economic class, using classic Marxist language against "the rich" and "corporate profits."     
 
From the time of the Sumerians, people all around the world have believed there is a war between forces of good and forces of evil. They believed the forces of evil work through people whose work it becomes to lead men into temptation and evil.  

 While the dualism underlying this belief is only partly true since evil exists within every man rather than just some, it is nevertheless true that from the time of Nimrod to our own, evil intentioned people have willfully led other people into sin and evil and in fact receive unholy satisfaction in doing so.
 
From its' inception, the implementation of a socialistic New World Order (global totalitarianism) has necessitated force, terror, Big Lies, revisionist history, psychological manipulation, the sexual perversion and subversion of children, and according to Karl Marx's anarchist comrade Bakunin, unleashing the devil in mankind:

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

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

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

Satanic revolt is war against the 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 moral disorder and nothingness, though a nothingness nevertheless pregnant with the expectation of fulfillment in the revelation, and finally the actual presence, of moral disorder personified....the dark Lord of this world.

The sentiment of the revolt is Satanic pride:

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

What all of this means is that contemporary hard-core leftists, socialists, progressives, communists and their fellow travelers such as Obama and his progressive minions are ideological heirs of the Satanic revolt that began as a rebellion against the God of Revelation and Christian theism as far back as the Renaissance eventuating in the proclamation of the death of the Christian God and cataclysmic eruptions of fire, brimstone and rivers of blood in the 20th century. 

America's revolutionaries are part of a program of psychological manipulation and terrorism utilized by Trotsky, Lenin, Stalin and the Communists after they seized control of Orthodox Christian Russia and put into practice long-term plans to abolish on a vast scale every vestige of belief in and commitment to the God of Revelation, family, morality, private property and other signs of “the capitalist petite Bourgeoisie."  Thus in the tradition of Trotsky, Lenin, and Stalin, they deliberately lead men into temptation and evil:

The Modern Liberal will invariably (and) inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success. When I say the Modern Liberal is morally and intellectually retarded at the level of the five-year old child, it is not hyperbole: its diagnosis.” (Evan Sayet, The Kindergarten of Evil, evansayet.com)
 
Satanic revolutionaries want us to sin so we'll disintegrate into dehumanized socially destructive slaves of unfettered libido who will self-destruct even as they actively participate in the destruction of our own culture and its' life-and-freedom sustaining institutions. 
 
The success of their diabolical program can be seen everywhere, from dying and apostatizing churches to the casually accepted dismemberment of babies on behalf of a woman's "right to choose" to the dysfunction and pornographic filth broadcast into our homes on a daily basis via TV and internet to youth-affirming gender-bending and obscene 'gay' pride parades featuring nudity, sodomy and worse.
 
An entire class of Americans exist today who are morally disordered, sexually corrupt, ignorant, unable to spell or reason and see nothing wrong with lives of parasitism, prostitution, violence and lawlessness.   For example, in "The High Cost of 'Free," Lloyd S. Pettegrew and Carol A. Vance report that in the Denver arena where Mr. Obama gave his DNC 2008 acceptance speech,

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

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

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

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

Writing in agreement, Lloyd Marcus, the Tea Party Movement's most prominent African American, laments that decades of socialist/progressive indoctrination in our schools, media and culture, plus six years of Obama, has yielded a devastating unspoken consequence. It is the loss of who we use to be as Americans:

"Today, far too many Americans see no shame in living on government assistance or scamming the system....Even worse, the Administration portrays getting on welfare as the honorable thing to do. Dear Lord, what kind of nation are we becoming?  An unprecedented 47 million Americans are on food stamps which is riddled with fraud. The Obama Administration has added over 10,000 new oppressive job-killing regulations. Consequently, 90 million are unemployed and on unemployment which is also riddled with fraud. Here's another first for America, over 11 million are receiving disability benefits; riddled with fraud. Clearly, many believe working is for suckers when the government is handing out freebies.....In his War on Achievers, Obama used his bully pulpit to deflate business owners by saying, "If you've got a business, you didn't build that." Obama and his operatives use compassionate sounding terms such as "social justice" and "income inequality" to justify the government confiscating the earnings of achievers and redistributing it to non-achievers to win their votes. Despicable."  (A heartbreaking unspoken consequence of Obama, Lloyd Marcus, Renew America,June 27, 2014)

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

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

"The Constitution is a chart of negative liberties, (it) says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what the federal government must do on your behalf." (Who Poses the Greater Threat? Walter Williams, Townhall.com, Mar. 3, 2010)
 
"Envy is rottenness to the bones" (Proverbs 14:30)
 
Whether it is the genocidal socialism of the former Soviet Union, the version espoused by the Nazis or the Americanized socialism that is emerging here, the overarching sentiment is the very same cold-blooded deadly sin---covetousness/envy:
 
"Marxism has been described as a blood cult, with envy its abiding stimulant, fuel, and motive."  (Joseph Epstein, former editor of The American Scholar, quoted in "Truths About Socialism," Coral Ridge Ministries, p. 66)

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

"The enemy is the great justification for terror, and the totalitarian state needs enemies to survive.  If it lacks them, it invents them.  Once they have been identified, they are treated without mercy."   Being an enemy is enough, "there is no need actually to have done anything at all."  (The Black Book of Communism, Courtois, Werth, Panne, Paczkowski, Bartosek, Margolin, . p. 747)
 
The methodology of evil begins by labeling the hated and envied as 'enemies' (i.e. in America--- homophobe, racist, bigot, pro Special Creation, pro-lifer, pro-traditional marriage, Tea Party conservative) and then declared criminals, which leads to exclusion from society.   Where power is total, exclusion very quickly leads to arrest and then extermination:

"The leaders of totalitarian regimes saw themselves as the moral guardians of society and were proud of their right to send anyone they chose to their death."  (ibid, p. 748)
 
If not death then deportation---and no trial necessary:
 
"But when you were deported, what was it for? What was the charge?" "Why bother to think up a charge? 'Socially harmful' or 'socially dangerous element'--S.D.E.', they called it. Special decrees, just marked by letters of the alphabet. So it was quite easy. No trial necessary."  "And what about your husband? Who was he?" "Nobody. He played the flute in the Leningrad Philharmonic. He liked to talk when he'd had a few drinks." ".We knew one family with grown-up children, a son and a daughter, both Komsomol (Communist youth members). Suddenly the whole family was put down for deportation to Siberia. The children rushed to the Komsomol district office. 'Protect us!' they said. 'Certainly we'll protect you,' they were told. 'Just write on this piece of paper: As from today's date I ask not to be considered the son, or the daughter, of such-and-such parents. I renounce them as socially harmful elements and I promise in the future to have nothing whatever to do with them and to maintain no communication with them."    (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn,   Cancer Ward)   

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

The systematic murder of millions of people in the former Soviet Union was primarily facilitated by two things.  First by 'scientifically' animalizing  'others,' the objects of hatred, resentment and envy.   This was achieved by application of the Darwinian biological and zoological strain of thinking that ultimately enabled Marxists to justify their monstrous crimes against humanity.   Second, by maliciously whipping up and enflaming covetousness/envy within the hearts of the 'oppressed.' Here in the Socialist Democracy of America the oppressed are 'special rights' groupies consisting of "gays," man-hating feminists, certain black-skinned people, Muslims (particularly jihadis), illegals, and other people of 'color.'

In 1956, Ludwig von Mises exposed the rottenness of envy and resentment fueling the paradoxical reasoning of envy-bitten people who are favorably disposed toward socialism rather than capitalism:
 
"It is paradoxical indeed that the leaders of these Oriental peoples, while casting longing glances at the prosperity of the Western nations, reject the methods that made the West prosperous and are enraptured by Russian communism that is instrumental in keeping the Russians and their satellites poor. It is still more paradoxical that Americans, enjoying the products of capitalistic big business, exalt the Soviet system and consider it quite "natural" that the poor nations of Asia and Africa should prefer communism to capitalism." (Reactionary Socialism, Mises Daily, Dec. 12, 2011)

Those who willfully choose evil, that is, the envy-fueled legal plunder or redistributionist policies of socialism,

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

At the end of WW II, dispirited atheist, communist, socialist, progressive and Christian thinkers began to analyze the crisis the war had precipitated and to reconstruct the civilization it had threatened.  Out of these efforts arose the "new conservative" or traditionalist wing of the postwar conservative intellectual movement in America. (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 30)
 
Their penetrating analysis of the ideas underlying and fueling communism and socialism such as the total immanent society (omnipotent, all-knowing society), Social Darwinism, positivism, rationalism, naturalism, materialism, collectivism, atomistic liberalism and underlying them all, atheism, led many of them to declare that evil ideas working through the minds of men had ultimately unleashed the catastrophic evils that had enveloped much of the world.  Upon this realization many of them either returned or converted to orthodox supernatural Christian theism.
 
For example, Douglas Hyde, an English ex-Communist and convert to Catholic Christianity emphatically declared:
 
"The sanest things on earth are those for which the allegedly reactive, unscientific, obscurantist Church stands and for which she is doing battle." (ibid, p. 52)
 
"Christianity is the most complete and perfect revelation of the nature of God and of God's will for man," wrote John Hallowell in 1950.  

Supernatural orthodox Christianity was the unifying thesis of Hallowell's interpretation of modern scientific/evolutionary  political philosophy:
 
"....the basic insights of the Christian faith provide the best insights we have into the nature of man and of the crisis in which we find ourselves.  That crisis is the culmination of modern man's progressive attempt to deny the existence of a transcendent or spiritual reality and of his progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent conception of reality....Only through a return to faith in God, as God revealed Himself to man in Jesus Christ, can modern man and his society find redemption from the tyranny of evil."  (ibid, p. 53)
 
The Christianity which Hallowell, Buckley, Hyde, Vivas and others defended was not the liberal or modernist evolutionary Christianity of the Social Gospel and Gnostic immanent Protestantism. Nor would it be the evolutionary theism, progressive creationism or any of the myriad of  twisted theology posing as Christianity today.  What early Conservatives proposed and defended was supernatural Christianity grounded in what for many early conservatives was the deepest, most terrifying lesson of WW II: the lesson of evil, of original sin:
 
"We must restore to our vocabulary a word discarded long ago, namely sin," asserted Hallowell.  To Richard Weaver, no concept gave deeper insight into the "enigma that is man" than original sin.  Evil was not just a "bad dream" an "accident of history," or "the creation of a few antisocial men."   Evil is a "subtle, pervasive, protean force," and original sin was a "parabolical expression" of this "immemorial tendency of man to do the wrong thing when he knows the right thing."   (ibid, 53)
 
Eliseo Vivas concurred.   Inside every man and woman he said, lay "brutality" and a "natural tendency" to define value in his own interests (moral relativism).  And this is precisely what powerful, amoral socialists, progressives, and others of the evolutionary and totalitarian mindset do, thereby liberating themselves and their malignant allies to maliciously fan the flames of covetousness/envy and hate in the hearts of our youth:
 
"Atheist teachers in the West are bringing up a younger generation in a spirit of hatred of their own society. Amid all the vituperation we forget that the defects of capitalism represent the basic flaws of human nature, allowed unlimited freedom together with the various human rights; we forget that under Communism (and Communism is breathing down the neck of all moderate forms of socialism, which are unstable) the identical flaws run riot in any person with the least degree of authority; while everyone else under that system does indeed attain 'equality'--the equality of destitute slaves. This eager fanning of the flames of hatred is becoming the mark of today's free world. Indeed, the broader the personal freedoms are, the higher the level of prosperity or even of abundance--the more vehement, paradoxically, does this blind hatred become. The contemporary developed West thus demonstrates by its own example that human salvation can be found neither in the profusion of material goods nor in merely making money."   Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
 
The social implications of Original Sin were obvious to early conservatives who believed that if the West and America were to have any chance of surviving rather than finally erupting in flames and blood, then there must be a revival of traditional Christianity as revealed by Jesus Christ God incarnate along with the restoration to our vocabulary of a word discarded long ago, namely sin.
 
Peter Hitchens, author of "The Rage Against God" agrees.  The living, supernatural God of the Bible is the chief rival of global socialist utopians whose power has grown enormously due to the trivialization of sin by the submissive, irrelevant contemporary church and through an alliance with radical Muslims and the cult of unrestrained libido unleashed into the Western world by Freud, Reich, Kinsey and Marcuse,
 
".... promoted by the self-pitying anthems of rock music, and encouraged by the enormous power of 'progressive' education in which so many cultural revolutionaries work."  (p. 135)
 
Echoing the cautionary advice of early conservative intellectuals, Hitchens  warns that only the concepts of sin,
 
".....of conscience, of eternal life, and of divine justice under an unalterable law are the ultimate defense against the utopian's belief that ends justify means and that morality is relative.   These concepts are safeguards against the worship of human power." (p. 135)
 
Without these safeguards America and the West will be overcome by the tyranny of evil rapidly overspreading our culture today.

Who is Intolerant because Ashamed: Creationists or Evolutionary Theologians?

It's no longer easy to be a faithful Christian in America, says Dr. Robert P. George, chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.  Our culture increasingly condemns Christian beliefs as bigoted and hateful:

 “They despise us if we refuse to call good evil and evil good.” (American Christians Should Prepare to Be Despised, Official Tells National Prayer Breakfast, Rob Kerby, ChristianHeadlines.com, May 15, 2014)

The Princeton University professor and author told Washington, D.C.’s 10th annual National Catholic Prayer Breakfast that American culture no longer favors faithful Christians. For example, he asked attendees to consider,

“....the derision that comes from being pro-life and pro-traditional marriage (they) threaten us with consequences if we refuse to call what is good, evil, and what is evil, good. They demand us to conform our thinking to their orthodoxy, or else say nothing at all…"

Dr. George told the prayer breakfast:

 "The intimidation to remain silent is insidious and growing...what American Christians are facing is the 21st century version of the question, ‘Am I ashamed of the Gospel?" 
 
If anything, some evolutionary theologians and their gullible Christian flocks, both evolutionary theist and progressive creationist, are at least as hostile if not more so toward faithful defenders of the miracle of Special Creation than are their evolutionary atheist and occult pantheist counterparts: Luciferians, god-men, goddesses, shaman, Satanists, witches, necromancers, and astrologers.
 
The usual diatribe thrown against altogether despised creationists goes something like this: 
 
Since Darwin introduced the theory of evolution some Christians have been uncomfortable with the idea that all species (i.e., reptiles, birds, bugs, dogs, apes, humans) share a common ancestry moving from primordial matter to creeping things, crawling things, swimming things, knuckle-dragging things to man under the direction of the God of evolution.   Thus the Earth was not created instantaneously as St. Augustine held or created in six days as most early Church Fathers affirmed. Nor was Adam created by the One God in three Persons as a living soul embodied in flesh, fully person, fully man right from the beginning.   Adam and Eve, if they even existed were emergent products of evolution, their closest relative soulless hominids.  Thus the events described in Genesis are not meant to convey the miraculous creation ex nihilo but the scientific 'reality' that the universe has an impotent creator that made and ignited a Cosmic Egg (Big Bang) which generated matter and energy. Then after billions of years of God-directed evolution eventuating in the suffering and death of millions of life-forms (God's fault, btw) man inexplicably fell from grace even though God is the guilty party, the real cause of death and suffering. 

According to this counter-intuitive Gnostic-laced tale of nonsense, evolutionary science, not God's Revelation, is a reality in nature explainable by reason and empirical observation and faithful Christians who deny this are in denial of reality.  Faithful Christians who actually affirm the Revelation of God and Special Creation are guilty of defending the backwards, anti-scientific, anti-evolution 'fundamentalist' interpretation of the book of Genesis thus are not only a cause of embarrassment to fashionably-correct, scientifically enlightened Christians, but are also guilty of harming Christianity. (Creationism Harms Christianity, sacerdotus.wordpress.com)

However, it isn't faithful Christians who are ‘embarrassments’ but rather intellectually arrogant evolution-obsessed theologians.  These wolves in sheep clothing mesmerize and persuade susceptible Christian sheep to uncritically accept dangerous esoteric ideas like evolution.
 
With respect to Darwin’s theory, Darwin is not its’ inventor. He received the idea from his nature-worshipping pagan grandfather Erasmus Darwin, an important name in European Masonic anti-Christian Church organizations engaged in destructive revolutionary activism. Erasmus mentored his grandson Charles:
 
"Dr. Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802) was the first man in England to suggest those ideas which were later to be embodied in the Darwinian theory by his grandson, Charles Darwin (1809-1882) who wrote in 1859 Origin of Species." (Scarlet and the Beast, Vol. II, John Daniel, p. 34)
 
According to anthropologist Henry Fairfield Osborn, longtime director of the American Museum of Natural History, ancient pagans are the inventers of modern evolutionism. In the introduction to his history of evolutionism Osborn wrote:
 
"When I began the search for anticipations of the evolutionary theory....I was led back to the Greek natural philosophers and I was astonished to find how many of the pronounced and basic features of the Darwinian theory were anticipated even as far back as the seventh century B.C." (Osborn, From the Greeks to Darwin, p. xi)
 
By its’ nature evolutionism belongs to the category of naturalism (all that exists is nature or cosmos), making it antithetical, or in fierce opposition to the infinite Triune God, the supernatural dimension and special creation.  The personal Triune God is outside of His creation---the natural dimension of space, time, matter and energy---thus He is not subject to the laws of science:
 
"....science has no satisfactory answer to the question of the origin of life on the earth. Perhaps the appearance of life on the earth is a miracle. Scientists are reluctant to accept that view, but their choices are limited: either life was created on the earth by the will of a being outside the grasp of scientific understanding, or it evolved on our planet spontaneously, through chemical reactions occurring in nonliving matter lying on the surface of the planet. The first theory places the question of the origin of life beyond the reach of scientific inquiry. It is a statement of faith in the power of a Supreme Being not subject to the laws of science. The second theory is also an act of faith. The act of faith consists in assuming that the scientific view of the origin of life is correct, without having concrete evidence to support that belief." (Until the Sun Dies, Robert Jastrow, Ph.D. Theoretical Physics, pp. 62-63, 1977)
 
Only by conceptually murdering the supernatural Triune God and replacing Him with a ‘god’ within the natural dimension (naturalism), thus subject to scientific inquiry, can intellectually arrogant theologians presume to speak for god, claiming that he made and exploded a Cosmic Egg and directs evolutionary transformism together with the rest of their twisted theology dressed in Christian clothing.
 
As an idea evolution is like an onion consisting of multitudinous layers of esoteric meaning.  Darwin's theory occupies two or three layers. The many other layers already existed prior to Erasmus going back to the Renaissance and before that to ancient Chaldea and India thence to ancient Greece and Rome where evolution is always and everywhere connected to reincarnation and spiritual evolution (transformism).   

On ancient pagan conceptions of reincarnation and spiritual evolution early Church Father Gregory of Nyssa said:
 
"[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" (The Making of Man 28:3; A.D. 379). 
 
Evolution appeared in Christendom during the Renaissance when certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered Chaldean astrology, Hermetic magic, occult Jewish Kabbalah, Eastern mystical traditions and the ancient ways of ‘going within’ (contacting spirits).  All of this was accompanied by conceptions of reincarnation and spiritual evolution.  They studied these ancient occult traditions which they 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 and spiritual evolution is the best proof of the divinity of Christ.  (God and the Knowledge of Reality, Thomas Molnar, pp. 78-79)
 
Father Richard John Neuhaus pulls all of these occult traditions together in his analysis of modern evolutionary scientism as a revitalization of ancient spiritual traditions closely connected to elemental spirits. In his book, “American Babylon,” Neuhaus argues that astrological elemental spirits (powers and principalities) have been recast as,
 
"...evolutionary dynamics, life forces, or laws of nature." Though described as laws rather than spirits, these elemental "forces".... work their inexorable ways in cold indifference to reason, to will, to love, and to hope. In short, it is suggested that the elemental spirits are in charge and that human freedom is a delusion." (p. 226)
 
Despite that modern evolutionary theologians validate their esoteric projects as empirical or observational science in reality observational science is their enemy.   For instance, evolutionary theology alleges that hominids are supposed to be our ancestors, the so-called transitional life-forms linking modern humans to the common ancestor of all life.   

However, the hominid claim has fallen flat on its’ face, said Carl Wieland. In "Making Sense of Apeman Claims," Wieland reports that a consistent pattern has emerged in direct opposition to the evolutionary story.  Over the decades, each new fossil find has been falling quite naturally into one of only three major groups.    And two of these, Neanderthal and Homo erectus turn out to be strikingly similar, in fact Neanderthals are "clearly human descendants of Adam." (Creation, Vol. 36, No. 3, 2014, p. 38)
 
Although the third category generates the most excitement among evolution-worshippers it turns out to be an extinct non-human primate group, anatomically not between apes and humans.   

Sequencing of Neanderthal DNA clearly shows interbreeding with modern populations, particularly those from Eastern Europe, meaning that Neanderthals are not a separate species, despite evolutionary claims that they split off from the human lineage 500,000 years ago.  This evidence is a major blow to evolutionary theist and "progressive" or "old-earth creationist notions." (p. 38).
 
It is because evolutionary 'old-earth' theologians reject what God said in favor of what man said, their starting point is fallible secular dating, hence they,
 
"....must regard Neanderthals as pre-Adamic soulless nonhumans despite all the archaeological evidences of their humanity.   But DNA now makes this completely dead in the water, having children together means they must be the same created kind."  (pp. 38-39)
 
Among the scientifically affirmed finds showing that Neanderthals were human are:
 
1. Stone tools and specialized bone tools for leatherworking.

2. The controlled use of fire, including heating birch bark peelings to make special pitch to haft wooden shafts onto stone tools.

3.  Perfectly balanced, finely crafted wooden hunting javelins.

4. Jewelry

5. Evidence of body decorations and cosmetics.

6. Burying their dead with ornaments.

7. Cooking utensils and the use of herbs in food.

8. Symbolic thinking

9. High-tech 'superglue'

10. A complex structure built 1 mile underground where no daylight penetrates suggests the technology and know-how to transport sustained fire as a source of light that far down.

11. Evidence of dwellings made of timber draped with animal skins

12.  Recent detailed analysis of hyoid bone (associated with the voice box) indicates they could speak, as does recent genetic evidence.  (ibid, Wieland)

"For he spoke and they were made: he commanded and they were created.” Psalm 33:9 

Either the infinite personal One God in three Persons spoke or He did not. If He did, then Jesus is God in the flesh, the Creator and Living Word (John 1: 1-5) the Light that came into the world (John 3: 1-9) who perfectly fulfills all prophecy from the antediluvian world to the post-flood world:
 
"And he said: I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Moses hid his face: for he durst not look at God."     Exodus 3:6
 
If the One God in three Persons spoke then what He revealed to Moses with respect to the miracle of creation is thesis (True Truth), making evolution antithesis (the lie).  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 elements 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. 

The Return of an Ancient Heresy 
 
The primary tactic employed by defiant, intellectually proud theologians eager to accommodate Scripture and the Church to modern science and pagan evolutionary thinking is predictable. It is the argument that evolution is entirely compatible with the Bible when Genesis, especially the first three chapters, is viewed in its entirety in a non-literal, non-historical context.

This is not a heresy unique to modern times. The early Church Fathers dealt with this heresy as well, counting it among the heretical tendencies of apostate Jewish Cabbalists, Origenists and Gnostic pagans such as Simon Magus. Fourth-century Fathers such as John Chrysostom, Basil the Great and Ephraim the Syrian, all of whom wrote commentaries on Genesis, specifically warned against treating Genesis as an unhistorical myth or allegory. John Chrysostom strongly warned against paying heed to these heretics,
 
“…let us stop up our hearing against them, and let us believe the Divine Scripture, and following what is written in it, let us strive to preserve in our souls sound dogmas.” (Genesis, Creation, and Early Man, Fr. Seraphim Rose, p. 31)
 
As St. Cyril of Alexandria wrote, higher theological, spiritual meaning is founded upon humble, simple faith in the literal and historic elements of Genesis as Revealed by God and one cannot apprehend rightly the Scriptures without believing in the historical reality of the events and people they describe. (ibid, Seraphim Rose, p. 40)
 
In agreement, Vishal Mangalwadi (1949- ), founder-president of BOMI/Revelation Movement observes that the Revelation of God is the only available foundation for truth, freedom and faith in God's gift of reason.  But Western theologians and intellectuals have closed their minds to Revelation, hence Truth, reason and Special Creation.  Because “intelligent” Americans no longer believe in “True Truth” (Francis Schaeffer) they invent stories and use empty god words as substitutes for the infinite, personal Triune God.  Thus Gospel Truth is now 'Gospel Story' and history a series of unfolding stories such as the physical science story (Big Bang) which may or may not include the use of a god-word; the biological science story (evolutionary transformism), the climate science story (global warming or change), and the social science story (gay marriage):
 
“Doing science” increasingly means peddling politically correct dogma – that is, stories that have evolved into myths. No one really knows if there was only one Big Bang or other bigger bangs as well; whether we live in a universe or multi-verse; whether life evolved on this planet or came from outer space . . . but if you want a tenured position in a university, and if you want your research projects funded, you have to toe politically correct storyline – champion dogma."  (How Did the West's 'Rational Animal' Become Incapable of Using Reason? Mangalwadi)
 
The abandonment of God's Revelation in favor of story-telling  
 
Christendom and Protestant America did not emerge from the darkness of story-telling and god-words but arose to illustrious heights on the awe-inspiring wings of the Revelation of God, hence the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the uniquely Christian definition of man as a person because created in the spiritual image of the infinite One God in three Persons, God's unchanging Moral Law and the Biblical view of man's sinful condition. Their subsequent fall was traced by Richard Weaver 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 Triune God, His Revelation and unchanging universals, thus the position that "there is a source of truth higher than and independent of man..." The consequence of this ‘evil decision’ is a still unfolding catastrophe reaching fullness in our own time:
 
"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 substance of 'man is the measure of all things' is idolatry.  The beginning of idolatry is pride (narcissism), which together with selfishness demonstrates preference for one's self instead of the Triune God, His Revelation (hence 'True Truth') and neighbor (and unwanted, inconvenient human life, i.e., babies).  Just as no violation of the Law can occur without one first being an idolater, envy/covetousness and murder are its' final results, for where 'self' is primary then 'self' deserves everything it can get, no matter the cost to other people.  
 
The fall of the West and America is due to the idolatry of darkened souls turned by choice toward evil.  From the antediluvians to our own age, the truth as to this 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 darkened souls imagined that "all that exists" is the natural dimension, meaning the universe of matter, animated powers, forces, and deterministic laws, all of which they celebrated and attributed miraculous powers to just as modern evolution worshippers do, whether secular or theological:
 
"There is an energy in the world, 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, Rob Bell, pgs. 144-145)
 
Evolutionary scientism is not observational science in search of how things really work in this world but rather a disastrous occult science tradition whose taproot stretches back to Babylon and before that the pre-flood world.   The 'Christian' teachers and defenders of this demonic heresy are guilty of leading unwitting sheep astray, possibly to their doom, and of besmirching and defaming faithful defenders of special creation as backwards, anti-science, anti-evolution destroyers of the faith.   However, in reality creationists are the defenders of thesis (True Truth) against the damnable incursion of antithesis (occultism) into the good news, the Gospel of Christ.
 
 In this light, what are vicious attacks against Special Creation as well as those against the sanctity of human life, and traditional one man one woman marriage but evil wills offended by and resentful of Higher Authority, True Truth, 'other' (unwanted, inconvenient human life) and moral restrictions and limitations?
 
"For whoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels."    Luke 9:26
 
Who are the intolerant ones, the highly offended because ashamed of our Lord and his words?  Who are the selfish, intellectually arrogant story-tellers whose embarrassing doctrine of change (evolution) is "really fitting for the chatter of frogs or jackdaws or the stupidity of fishes or the insensibility of trees"'?  

Hint:  Not Creationists or any of the faithful.

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.

Two Paths Lie Before Us

More than 600 times the Bible says of itself that it is the VERY WORDS of God Himself (i.e., 2 Tim. 3:16) The Bible also says of itself that it cannot be changed or tampered with, see Mt. 5:18, 1 Pet. 1:25, Is. 40:8, Ps. 119:89; 12:6-7; 19:7-8; 11:7, Luke 16:17.   Yet changing and tampering with the Very Word of God is exactly what evolutionary theists and progressive creationists do in order to conform the Bible to the science of men.

In general, evolutionary theism and progressive creationism as popularized by Hugh Ross rest on four unspoken pillar assumptions:

1.God did not speak, or He did but only science ‘elites’ know what He said, or no one can know what He said.

2. Pragmatic reasoning which assumes that if something appears to work it is okay.

3. God acts according to the requirements of man’s science.

4. Evolutionary transformism of one kind of lower thing into another higher kind of thing over billions of years.

Beginning with assumption #1, either God spoke everything into existence in six instantaneous acts (days) of creation (Special Creation), meaning that Adam was a living soul/spirit embodied within physical matter (body) right from the start, or Adam is a myth, the meaning of which men of our age are at liberty to interpret according to their cosmic and evolutionary narratives and other schemes.  In this way of thinking, man is the product of billions of years of evolution moving from a blob of matter to creeping things, flying things, swimming things, knuckle-dragging things, and finally man.

As soon as Special Creation is explained away and outright rejected in favor of cosmic narratives, the manipulation of God by arrogant men becomes possible and evolutionary transformism over billions of years becomes necessary.

Moving to #4, evolutionary transformism is an ancient magic doctrine originating in Jewish Kabbalah and Hermetic magic. Jewish Kabbalah 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).

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)

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.

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 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)

This is affirmed by G.H. Pember in his classic work, "Earth's Earliest Ages." In his book Pember thoroughly examines the explosion of spiritism, astrology, Mysteries, Hinduism, Buddhism, evolution/reincarnation 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)

With respect to #1 and #2, Kabbalist pagan Jews not only rejected the Authority and Revealed Word of God, but like Nimrod, they ‘killed’ Him in order to take control of His Divine Powers.  Evolutionary theists and progressive creationists act in a similar way when they replace the living God with a  puppet-god that conforms to their evolutionary narratives.

One of the primary tactics  employed by Gnostic pagan Jews for the purpose of dominating and controlling the Divine Powers of God is the same one employed by their modern evolutionary 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 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)

Two paths lie before us, each one requiring an act of will: the way of men like Hugh Ross, Ken Wilber, and Michael Dowd or the Way of our Savior Jesus Christ, the Living Word (John 1:1).  To choose the way of men is to be in deep spiritual peril, for you are out of God's Will and are worshipping idols.  This is as true for evolutionists as for Satanists, so choose wisely.  Take the path--the door--into the fold of sheep:

Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber.” “But he who enters by the door is a shepherd of the sheep.”  “To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.” “When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.”  “A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.”  “I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture.”  “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.  (John 10: 1-10)

The Triumph of Baphomet

In "Here’s the First Look at the New Satanic Monument Being Built for Oklahoma’s Statehouse," Jonathan Smith reports that the Satanic Temple plans to erect a monument glorifying the Dark Lord on the front lawn of the Oklahoma Statehouse:

"An Indiegogo campaign was launched with what seemed like a somewhat lofty goal of $20,000, but by the time donations ended almost $30,000 had been raised. Now an artist trained in classical sculpture is toiling away in New York, crafting a Baphomet figure sitting beneath an inverted pentagram and flanked by two children gazing upward in loyalty. When it is finished, it will be cast in bronze and, the Satanists hope, eventually displayed in Oklahoma."  The statue is a "direct response to the state's installation of a Ten Commandments monument outside the Capitol in 2012."

(http://www.vice.com/read/heres-the-first-look-at-the-new-satanic-monument-being-built-for-oklahomas-statehouse)

"Unless we are mistaken...the twentieth century...is to witness a gigantic conflict of spirits...More serious and fiercer than ever before, the conflict is between the old and the new worldview." Herman Bavinck, Christian theologian, 1901

An ancient evil creed from the pits of Hell is being reborn, and the statue of Baphomet is one of its visual embodiments.

So who is Baphomet?

Baphomet is the phallic god Pan, the ancient hermaphrodite god of nature, the divine substance (prima material) from which the universe and all life evolved:

"The fundamental doctrine of magic is phallicism. New life is created by the act of generation: therefore the life force is generated by the sexual forces, the union of male and female elements. As represented by the two opposing equilateral triangles..." "The phallic God is therefore hermaphroditic or bi-sexual. The sexual organs are considered sacred, while the rites and rituals are designed to liberate the passions and the natural instincts from the control of reason. The novice must denounce as fraud the existence of a moral order, together with that of its creator. This is the exact reverse of what the Bible stands for."  "The creation of the universe is the work of the hermaphrodite god. The universe was not created but procreated or engendered by him in successive stages. The god himself is supposed to have been the original and unique emanation of the divine substance of which all things are made. In this role the god is known as Pan, the first principle of nature.  Thus man is placed on a par with his creator: both are divine and immortal; man therefore creates when he procreates." (Sects, Symbolism & the Mark of the Beast, Ray Novosel)

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

Baphomet is a goat-headed deity, a satanic deity of evolutionary energy common to the Western occult science and attendant magic traditions and pagan religions (i.e., Wicca, Illuminati, Masonry, New Age) that emerged out of the Renaissance when certain disgruntled Christian theologians, mystics and intellectuals had discovered Hermetic magic and occult Jewish Kabbalah texts which they studied and translated resulting in Hermetic Kabbalah.

Both Hermetic magic and Jewish Kabbalah are ancient Mystery Religion traditions implying evolutionary transformism moving from one kind of lower thing to another kind of higher thing.   While Hermeticism originated in ancient Egypt, the mother of both Cabala and the original Baphomet is Babylon. (Ezekiel 16: 28-29)

Master Mason Eugene W. Plawiuk affirms the Chaldean pedigree of Baphomet and its close connection to Astrology's elemental spirits  in "Liber Capricornus: the Symbolism of the Goat."   Plawiuk explains that the goat is known to all of us,

"...through the ancient science of Astrology first developed by the Chaldeans, or as they are commonly known; Babylonians.  The Goat symbolizes male fertility (and is represented by) the astrological sign of Capricorn....In fact the...Babylonians who gave us this symbol of Capricorn and the science of Astrology were the first Temple Builders, and the goat for them symbolized the essence of the Temple or Lodge....According to a research monograph on the Dionysian Artificers and Early Masonry edited by Manly P. Hall, the symbolism of the goat relates to the prechristian God Pan, Dionysius.  The Goat-God was accepted by the later Greek Mystery Schools as the symbol of the Temple Builders. "(Presented to Norwood Lodge No. 90 A.F.&A.M. G.R.A., Sept. 3, 1991, MasonicWorld.com)

 Baphomet resembles horned goat-gods all over the globe from Egypt to Northern Europe and India.  For example, the ancient Celtic horned- deity Cernunnos bears a striking similarity to Baphomet as does Herne in ancient Britain. In Jungian theory, Baphomet is a continuation of the horned-god archetype, the dark side universally present in individual psyches.  As Pan, Baphomet is the talisman of the occult science of energy:

"Pan (Gr.).  The nature-god, whence Pantheism....Homer makes him the son of Hermes and Dryope. His name means ALL. He was the inventor of the Pandean Pipes; and no nymph who heard their sound could resist the fascination of the great Pan, his grotesque figure notwithstanding. Pan is related to the Mendesian goat.....as a talisman of great occult potency, nature's creative force. The whole of the Hermetic philosophy is based on nature's hidden secrets, and as Baphomet was undeniably a Kabbalistic talisman, so was the name of Pan of great magic efficiency in what Eliphas Levi would call the 'Conjuration of the Elementals'. There is a well-known pious legend which has been current in the Christian world ever since the day of Tiberias, to the effect that the 'great god Pan is dead'. But people are greatly mistaken in this; neither nature nor any of her Forces can ever die. A few of these may be left unused, and being forgotten lie dormant for long centuries. But no sooner are the proper conditions furnished than they awake to act again with tenfold power." (H.P. Blavatsky, Theosophical Glossary)

Baphomet inside an inverted pentagram is the sigil (a pictorial signature of a demon) of the Church of Satan while Goya's 1821 painting, "Great He-Goat" or "Witches Sabbath" depicts a coven of witches gathered around Satan portrayed as a half-man, half-goat figure:

"The primary deity of witches and wiccans is the goddess, accompanied by a 'horned' god as consort...."  (The Global Mainstreaming of Witchcraft, Linda Harvey, p. 44, from On Global Wizardry, Peter Jones)

In True Detective, a TV series about the investigation of satanic ritual murders commissioned by demonized occultists in high places--the human tools of dark forces influencing our society--sacrifices are made to the “Yellow King” an effigy of a horned god.

The French occultist Eliphas Levi's depiction of the horned deity in his book Dogmes et Rituels de la Haute Magie (Dogmas and Rituals of High Magic) is the official visual representation of Baphomet.  Levi depicted Baphomet as an androgynous, winged humanoid goat with breasts and a torch between its horns.  The figure bears numerous similarities to the horned-deities enumerated above and also includes several other occult symbols relating to the Mystery concepts embodied by the horned-deity.

In the preface of his book Levi said the goat on the frontispiece carries the sign of the pentagram on the forehead,

"....with one point at the top, a symbol of light, his two hands forming the sign of Hermeticism, the one pointing up to the white moon of Chesed, the other pointing down to the black one of Geburah. This sign expresses the perfect harmony of mercy with justice. His one arm is female, the other male like the ones of the androgyn of Khunrath, the attributes of which we had to unite with those of our goat because he is one and the same symbol. The flame of intelligence shining between his horns is the magic light of the universal balance, the image of the soul elevated above matter, as the flame, whilst being tied to matter, shines above it. The ugly beast’s head expresses the horror of the sinner, whose materially acting, solely responsible part has to bear the punishment exclusively; because the soul is insensitive according to its nature and can only suffer when it materializes. The rod standing instead of genitals symbolizes eternal life, the body covered with scales the water, the semi-circle above it the atmosphere, the feathers following above the volatile. Humanity is represented by the two breasts and the androgyn arms of this sphinx of the occult sciences.”

The beasts head expresses the ages old Gnostic hatred of physical matter, meaning that birth, life, and body are evils, for in birth the soul finds itself constricted within the awful limitations of a body.   In its modern incarnation the beast's head is the sigil of the satanic inversion signifying hatred not only of birth, life and body but of physical Resurrection.  Birth, Resurrection and eternal embodied life in a physical paradise are death while death is birth since it liberates the suffering soul from its prison.  In this way of thinking, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, the 9/11 killers, Kermit Gosnell and other mass murderers did their victims a favor by killing them.

In this light, Baphomet visually represents the demonic forces of evil that for over fifty years have been encircling and sweeping over and through our dechristianized culture closing the souls of Americans to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Physician of our souls, while opening them to powers of darkness.  Baphomet therefore signals the nearly completed inversion of the order of creation and reversal of the direction of Biblical theism so that Special Creation, birth and Resurrection are evil while evolutionary naturalism (nihilism), death and iniquity are good but evil better.

With Special Creation virtually replaced by the occult science of energy (evolution),  the masses of deluded now believe that men have not fallen from perfection but instead are gradually evolving upward from their primordial matter and ape beginnings toward greater and greater spiritual perfection.  Self-perfecting man no longer needs a Savior as the idea of "conscious evolution" means there is an irresistible Force within each person, a universal Force that when activated grants unimaginable psychic powers, even immortality.  Thus deluded man believes he can save himself,  and perhaps even attain god-hood.

Baphomet thus denotes the mystical pantheist 'oneness' of man with nature, his evolutionary ascent and culmination in the Babylonian Magic Way of reaching divine status and psychic powers through meditation and/or channeling techniques.   From the time of the Babylonians, the quest of divine status and psychic powers has been guided by disembodied spirits who were assumed to be former humans who had perfected themselves and escaped the wheel of karma and now enable initiates to evolve spiritually into higher and higher states of consciousness.  At the highest level the mind of the initiate becomes 'one with' the impersonal god-force, or prima materia, the God-less first cause of all that exists:

"Most deep ecologists are pantheists, and many explicitly embrace Hinduism, Buddhism or Confucianism...Some actively seek to revive Druidism, witchcraft, Native American religions and---among feminists---goddess worship."  Drawing from Eastern religions and evolutionary science, "they place man's identity with the rest of nature in his ascent through the evolutionary chain of being."  Thus one environmentalist conducts workshops in which participants are urged "to remember their alleged evolutionary history by rolling on the ground and imagining what their lives were like as dead leaves, slugs, and lichens." (Deep Ecology, Neopaganism & Global Warming, E. Calvin Beisner, pp. 172-173, from On Global Wizardry, Peter Jones)

 Upon inspection, the visual image of Baphomet reveals that each occult symbol is balanced with its opposite to show that the next great evolutionary leap to come requires the fusion of polar opposites.  This means good with evil, light with dark, man's dark side with his good side, male with female, man with nature, the Christian Church with the devil's world system, God the Father (Spirit)  with prima materia, the Holy Spirit with Kundalini, and according to Teilhard de Chardin, the transformation and integration of the Hindu god Shiva (The Destroyer) by Christ:

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

Baphomet is therefore an androgynous 'gay' figure bearing the physical characteristics of both sexes because natural man (animalized or beast- man) fully embraces and has become the brute beast that is his evil side (sin nature). The concept of the two-in-one is of great importance in occult philosophy as it represents the highest level of initiation in the quest of becoming “one with divine prima materia."

The so-called 'highest' level is actually the reverse, for this level is where the initiate has achieved the ultimate meaning of two-in-one: demonic possession.   It usually takes many years to arrive at this level of evil where beast-man believes reality is within his own skull, that he is a god (or goddess) with the power to create his own universe of power and a narrative to accompany it:

"Evolution is no longer viewed as a mindless affair, quite the opposite. It is mind enlarging its domain up the chain of species."  Evolution is the “universe...a mind that oversees, orchestrates, and gives order and structure to all things."   We are now the highly evolved ones, therefore no longer, "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.” (Algeny, Jeremy Rifkin, 1983, p. 188)

It is also at this level where natural man believes he has a right to determine who lives or dies.  In the Soviet Union, for example, the God-and-human hating beast-man, Vladimir Lenin, exulted that,

"Darwin put an end to the belief that the animal and vegetable species bear no relation to one another (and) that they were created by God, and hence immutable." (Fatal Fruit, Tom DeRosa, p. 9)

Lenin exercised godlike power over life and death. He saw himself as, "the master of the knowledge of the evolution of social species." It was Lenin who "decided who should disappear by virtue of having been condemned to the dustbin of history." From the moment Lenin made the "scientific" decision that the bourgeoisie represented a stage of humanity that evolution had surpassed,

"...its liquidation as a class and the liquidation of the individuals who actually or supposedly belonged to it could be justified." (The Black Book of Communism, p. 752)

Speaking of Stalin, Milovan Djilas, a prominent Communist leader of Yugoslavia, said,

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

Stalin's daughter, Svetlana Alliluyeva, described the monstrously evil Beria, Stalin's right-hand man as a frightening,

"...wicked demon...A terrible demon had taken possession of my father's soul." (ibid, p. 54)

Alain Brossat draws the following conclusions about the Soviet Union and the blatantly occult Nazi Germany, and the ties that bind them:

"The 'liquidation' of the Muscovite executioners, a close relative of the 'treatment' carried out by Nazi assassins, is a linguistic microcosm of an irreparable mental and cultural catastrophe that was in full view on the Soviet Stage. The value of human life collapsed, and thinking in categories replaced ethical thought…In the discourse and practice of the Nazi exterminators, the animalization of Other…was closely linked to the ideology of race. It was conceived in the implacably hierarchical racial terms of "subhumans" and "supermen"…but in Moscow in 1937, what mattered…was the total animalization of the Other, so that a policy under which absolutely anything was possible could come into practice." (Black Book of Communism, p. 751)

In the demonically twisted logic of the beastly god-man, since he is God, then 2 + 2 can be five or nine, up can be down, freedom can mean slavery, life can mean death, and he can kill, destroy, steal, rape and sodomize all he wants because he make the rules.  Hence the satanic maxim of this century's leading satanic philosopher and occultist, Aleister Crowley (1875-1947):

"Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law, love under will." (Liber Al vel Legis or The Book of the Law)

Returning to Baphomet, his phallus is actually Hermes’ Caduceus – a rod intertwined with two serpents. This ancient symbol has represented Hermeticism since the ancient Egyptian pantheon with its' worship of the horned serpent right up through our own time:

 "The UN Meditation Room mural is divided into 72 separate sections—the tetragrammaton or Divine Name of 72 words. It depicts triangles and pyramids representing "the deity" in accordance with the ancient Babylonian symbols. Also a part of this mural is a spiral figure intertwined with a diagonal line which may represent Hermes Wand, the Cadeuces, traditional symbol of the sex forces or Kundalini.  The mural's center sphere and outer circle roughly form an eye. The "all seeing eye" of the deity theme is to be repeated in the Temple building by a glass eye faceted like a diamond to reflect the rays of the sun through the six wings."   On April 24, 1957, when the Meditation Room was reopened, the late Dag Hammarskjold, UN Secretary General, described this pagan stone as an altar to universal religion: "The altar is the symbol of the God of all," he said."  (The Temple of Understanding, Edith Kermit Roosevelt, The New Hampshire Sunday Times News, October 21, 1962 © Edith Kermit Roosevelt Syndicate)

Esoterically, the Caduceus represents the activation of chakras, from the base of the spine to the pineal gland, using serpent power otherwise known as the seething force of Lucifer, the Universal Mind, the Force, Astral Light, or Lucifer the angel of evolution, according to occult New Age theologian David Spangler.

 From the time of the ancients serpent power has been important to religious and mythological symbolism all around the world. Within the Egyptian mysteries, serpent power was associated with elemental spirits,

"...the elemental forces that were in play before the creation of the world." (Carl Teichrib, Gods of Ancient Egypt, p. 182)

 In his book, "The Sign of the Serpent," Mark Balfour relates how pervasive serpent symbols are within India and the Hindu religion:

"Any observant traveler who moves from the snow-tipped Himalayas in the North to the sun-soaked sands of Cape Comorin at India's southern tip, will encounter – particularly in the rural areas and at sacred centres of pilgrimage wherever Siva, God of both Divine Wisdom and regeneration, is the presiding Deity – the serpent motif sculptured within shrines, impressed on myriads of stone implants in the ground and depicted in art." (A Short Guide to Occult Symbols: Serpent Power, Carl Teichrib, 2005, Kjos Ministries)

Balfour elaborates on this belief:

"In Hinduism, the Cosmic Serpent – Ananta Sesha – symbolic of timeless eternity, carries the world on his 1000-fold [Cobra] hood...As the creative impulse stirs within the great Serpent in the Sky – when passive idea becomes active thought – the forces of attraction and repulsion come into play as 'spirit' begins its involution into "matter." (ibid, Teichrib)

Moreover, Kundalini yoga, a discipline within Hinduism, teaches that latent serpent power lies at the base of the etheric human spine,

"...like a coiled serpent, ready to spring." (Harper's Dictionary of Hinduism, p. 156, ibid, Teichrib)

Through strenuous yoga techniques, serpent power uncoils and rises through seven "chakras" or power centers within the body of the initiate. Serpent power, or evolution as it is popularly known today, is considered,

"(to be a) concentrated field of intelligent cosmic, invisible energy absolutely vital to life beginning in the base of the spine as a man or a woman begins to evolve in their first incarnation." (The Donning International Encyclopedic Psychic Dictionary, p. 343, ibid, Teichrib) 

Serpent power can be imbibed mentally as well as imparted 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)

These demon-possessed gurus were imparting to their adoring worshippers experiences they had undergone during initiation rituals and which they attributed to spirit-possession.

Veteran researcher Brooks Alexander observes of Rajineesh, Muktananda and other gurus:

"All of these gurus espouse a similar philosophy, and they all turn it into practice in a similar way. It is a pattern that we find not only in tantra (Indo-Tibetan occultism), but in European Satanism, antinomian Gnosticism, and ancient pagan sorcery as well." (Book Review: Riders of the Cosmic Circuit," in SCP Journal, Vol. 7, No. 1, 1987, p. 39) 

According to Alexander, occult Eastern teachings and techniques have been assimilated into our church and our culture. With remarkable speed and ease, both Eastern and Western occult ideas (i.e., evolutionary science) and spiritist techniques (i.e. channeling)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)

The Book of Revelation pinpoints Babylon as the post-flood center of an evil creed---an occult pagan Mystery religion based on advaitic monism, occult science of energy issuing in evolutionary transformism of one kind of thing into another higher kind of thing, psychic powers, astrology, exalted priesthood, gnosis, secret initiations, familiar spirits, the goddess and horned deity, androgyny, sexual perversions, and other evils.

In this light, early Church Father Basil the Greats' warning to the faithful that they avoid babblers of nonsense who teach magical transformism makes sense:

"[A]void the nonsense of those arrogant philosophers who do not blush to liken their soul to that of a dog, who say that they have themselves formerly been women, shrubs, or fish. Have they ever been fish? I do not know, but I do not fear to affirm that in their writings they show less sense than fish." (The Six Days’ Work 8:2, Church Father Basil the Great, A.D. 393).

It is the devilish 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, the god of forces who is also Baphomet and Pan, that is obsessed by evolutionary transformism.  So much so that the Spirit performs the cult of demons by not only teaching their nonsensical doctrines to all who are susceptible but by stealthily supplanting Special Creation (Genesis account) with their damnable Babylonian magic. (2 Thess. 2:1-8)

Through his human tools, the god of forces has all but supplanted the miracle of six day creation, thereby ripping out the heart of the faith and leaving behind a desolation of abomination: a Christless form of Christianity---the triumph of Baphomet.
