In his classic work, "Earthâ€™s Earliest Ages" GH Pember examines the role of demonic forces from the pre-flood world to the post-flood world and compares them to the rise of spiritualism, Theosophy and Buddhism in tandem with evolutionary conceptions and reincarnation that had swept into Christendom during the Renaissance. Pember's examination concludes in 1876 when his remarkable book was published. These occult philosophies, doctrines and mystery teachings immediately captured the minds of many of Christendom's intelligentsia (i.e., philosophers, educators, and certain churchmen) during the Renaissance, then percolated underground for a while, and finally exploded upon the scene during the Enlightenment eventuating in the proclamation of God's death.
Many years after the death of Pember, historian James Webb also examined the penetration of occult philosophy into Christendom. In his two books, "The Occult Underground: The Dawn of the New Age" and "The Occult Establishment," Webb chronicles the rise of an occult intelligentsia as it emerged out of the Renaissance, a spiritually traumatic time in which the spiritual roots of many people were shaken free of Christianity. As a result, they eagerly embraced the occult traditions â€” Hermeticism, Theosophy, Buddhism, esoteric Cabbalism, and spiritualismâ€” sweeping into Christendom at that time.
Webb's main finding is that since the Renaissance, a powerfully influential occult community existing at the highest levels of Western society has been both the intelligentsia and the real powers behind what has been variously called the Progressive Underground, the Anti-Establishment, the Counter Culture (and later on the Sexual Revolution), the aim of which is twofold: first, the total destruction of the Old Order based on the Bible, in particular the Genesis account of creation and man as God's image-bearer, and second, the creation of a communistic/socialistic New World Order which is to rise out of the smoldering ashes of the Old Order.
Today, vast numbers of the contemporary West's occult community are theosophists. India is the home of all theosophic speculation, thus it is the directive force of Buddhism, modern Hinduism and contemporary Theosophy in its many guises. After theosophy made its' way into the pre-Christian West, it intermingled with Greek philosophy, Hermeticism, esoteric Cabbalism, and Gnosticism. With the Rennaisance, it influenced Swedenborg's spiritualist theology, Free Masonry, and the group of modern thinkers from Kant to the Hegelians, and from them to Karl Marx, Adolf Hitler and too many others to be named.
Modern theosophy claims to be a definite science. Its teachings are supposedly the product of reason, and its source is the universal consciousness of the impersonal, non-living one-substance, rather than the Divine revelation of the living, personal God the Father. As a science it is supposed to be based on investigation and experimentation of the natural and/or occult laws in nature and in human life. Only those qualified for the inquiry can grasp these laws and they gain from this knowledge certain superhuman powers.
Theosophy combines monism (universal one-substance) with evolution and reincarnation. Thus its' most basic teaching is the universal brotherhood of all men, which means that all things, including mankind, are evolved parts of the universal one-substance. Hence springs the preaching of moral relativism and tolerance to all persons, to all sexual orientations and modes of being--no matter how offensive or freakish--as well as to all varieties of belief, e.g. Buddhists, Muslims, Christians (but not orthodox), Jews (but not the faithful), Atheists, B'hai, Wiccans, goddess worshippers, Free Masons, and Satanists for example.
Theosophy considers the different belief systems as methods adopted by man in the search for oneness with the impersonal one-substance, which may be spirit or nonspirit, divine or not divine. Thus all belief systems are of necessity different, because men differ in temperament, orientation, type, needs, and stages of evolution. Hence all belief systems are different and imperfect expressions of truth and must therefore be tolerated.
The United Nations has long been one of the foremost world harbingers for the "New Occult Theosophic Spirituality" and the gathering "New World Order" based on occult Theosophic principles. In demonstration of the blatant satanic nature of Theosophy, it is Lucis Trust, formerly known as Lucifer Publishing, that prints and disseminates United Nations material and maintains the Temples of Understanding as well as the U.N.s "meditation room." Among its sponsors are the United Nations, Greenpeace, Amnesty International and UNICEF. Read an indepth expose of Theosophy here:
Luciferianism then, is the spiritual foundation of the "new" occult spirituality that, having evicted the supernatural God and orthodox faith, is sweeping unopposed over and across the post-Christian West and America and all around the globe.
In conclusion, satanic Theosophy is the foundation of the post-Christiasn science-based belief systems popping up like toadstools all over the West as well as of the evolutionary scientism which has been taught in the guise of science to Westerners for over sixty years.
