In ‘Largest Massacre of Christians in Syria’ Ignored” Raymond Ibrahim reports that one of the worst Christian massacres complete with,
“…mass graves, tortured-to-death women and children, and destroyed churches—recently took place in Syria, at the hands of the U.S.-supported jihadi “rebels”; and the U.S. government and its “mainstream media” mouthpiece are, as usual, silent (that is, when not actively trying to minimize matters).” (The Aquila Report)
In other words, the sinister power stealthily aiding and abetting the massacre of Syrian Christians is our own ‘deep state’ Gnostic Progressive Leftist controlled government.
Though names have changed over time and new members added, it remains the case that behind the murderous Soviet Union, Hitler’s occult National Socialist Reich, the ongoing destruction of the West, redistribution of its wealth, and replacement of Westerners and Americans with Muslims, there has been a powerful financial coterie of ‘elite’ progressives and like-minded travelers committed to a mystical pantheist worldview, apotheosis, self-empowerment, revolution and death. From the turn of the century till now, the coterie has been financing catastrophic worldwide wars, revolutions and mass murder, particularly of faithful Jews and Christians since the turn of the century:
“About 200,000 clergy, many crucified, scalped and otherwise tortured, were killed during the approximately 60 years of communist rule in the former Soviet Union, a Russian commission reported this week. In addition, another 500,000 religious figures were persecuted and 40,000 churches destroyed in the period from 1922 to 1980, the report said. Half the country’s mosques and more than half the synagogues were also destroyed. Clergymen were crucified on churches’ holy gates, shot, scalped [and] strangled,” said Alexander Yakovlev, head of the Commission for the Rehabilitation of the Victims of Political Repression. The commission prepared the report for Russian President Boris Yeltsin. “I was especially shocked by accounts of priests turned into columns of ice in winter,” Yakovlev said. “It was total cruelty.” (paulbogdanor.com)
“Persecution and martyrdom of Christians under 20th century totalitarianism – mainly of Russian Orthodox Christians under Bolshevism – is by far the greatest crime in all of recorded history…. Attempts at “killing the soul” started only months after the Revolution of 1917.” Persecution and martyrdom was, “several times greater than the Holocaust in terms of innocent lives brutally destroyed. It has killed more Christians in a few decades than all other causes put together in all ages, with Islam a distant second as the cause of their death and suffering. And yet it still remains a largely unknown, often minimized, or scandalously glossed over crime.”(New Martyrs of the East and Coming Trials in the West, Srdja Trifkovic, OrthodoxyToday.com)
Despite the election of Donald Trump, most of America’s government, financial institutions, defense, education, media, music, liberalized churches, seminaries, and other cultural and mind-shaping institutions remain in the hands of God-and-America-hating ‘deep state’ Gnostic Progressives, the intellectual heirs of a way of thinking that from the beginning,
“… has been characterized by a desire to be free from the burden of Christianity…As a rebellion against Christianity, its negative goal defined its positive form: the desire to remove the church and replace it with the state gave liberalism its structure, beliefs, and goals.” (Worshipping the State: How Liberalism became Our State Worship, Benjamin Wiker)
Wiker writes that as far back as the Renaissance the strong impulse to throw off the restraints of the personal Triune God and Christianity was already at work in certain Churchmen and intellectuals, hence their eventual embrace of anti-creation evolutionary materialism:
“The desire to be liberated from the constraints of Christianity was the original reason for modern liberalism’s embrace of a world defined entirely by materialism—the view that there are no immaterial entities like God of the soul, but only physical entities. This embrace of materialism began as far back as the Renaissance. And the same impulse was behind the nineteenth-century enthusiasm for scientific materialism, and it remains a staple of liberalism today.” (Ibid, Benjamin Wiker)
Within the materialist and evolutionary pattern of thought,
“there is neither need nor room for the supernatural. The earth was not created; it evolved. So did all the animals and plants that inhabit it, including our human selves, mind and soul as well as brain and body. So did religion.” (The Humanist Frame, Julian Huxley, p. 18)
Having rejected the Christian roots of their own civilization, contemporary Progressive Leftists have merged materialism with a new Gnostic mystical pantheist order of beliefs of which global socialism, a form of monism (collectivism or totalism), is a logical expression. In keeping with Marxist Communism, Nazi Socialism, New Age Spirituality, Luciferianism, and “God is dead” theology, Progressive Leftism is a Neo-Gnostic movement that exalts Lucifer as the Light Bearer and emancipator of man while demonizing Jehovah as an evil, malformed, ignorant deity sometimes called Yaldabaoth, the ‘fallen’ Holy Creator God of the Old Testament who created the evil material world, angels and human beings (automatons). Thus Helena Blavatsky, architect of New Age spirituality concluded that it is but natural,
“…to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it was he who was the ‘Harbinger of Light,’ bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah…Indeed, (mankind) was taught wisdom and the hidden knowledge by the ‘Fallen Angel.” As man’s benefactor, Lucifer continues to assist man’s evolution.” (Orthodoxy and the Religion of the Future, Fr. Seraphim Rose, pp. 224-225)
Rather than Yaldabaoth, modern Gnostic Transhumanists such as Nick Bostrom, one of the founders of the World Transhumanist Association, suggest that the Holy Trinity is an evil alien supercomputer, an ego-driven consciousness, the evil Lord Archon – a projection of artificial intelligence. The Lord Archon has entrapped humanity through deceit and parasitism in a simulated world of matter to prevent human beings from remembering that they are divine spirits whose real home is the Cosmic Mind or Gnostic Pleroma. (1)
All permutations of Western neo-Gnosticism believe the world is not real but rather a simulation or mental construct in the mind for example, of extraterrestrials, the Lord Archon, or Yaldabaoth. This idea not only undergirds identity politics, constructivism, and social justice (2) but is strikingly similar to Hinduism’s Brahman. Brahman however, is not an evil Archon but the Great Cosmic Spirit – the Ultimate One Substance (prakriti matter, anima mundi or prima materia), the Essence of all 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)
“…pride is their necklace; The garment of violence covers them. Their eye bulges from fatness. The imaginations of their heart run riot. They mock and wickedly speak of oppression; They speak from on high. They have set their mouth against the heavens, And their tongue parades through the earth.” Psalm 73: 6-9
In this light it can be seen why Western Gnostic movements are vehemently anti-supernatural and anti-creation ex nihilo in favor of an inverted evolutionary exegesis. Western Gnosticism is a redoubt of the proud who speak sophistry from on high while mocking and ridiculing decent, hard-working Americans. Gnostic Progressivism is amoral, satanic, technocratic, and chiliastic. It represents the ultimate inversion and reversion of the Triune God, His creation, Satan, reality, good and evil, and the fall of Adam and Eve. As opposed to the Biblical version, the Gnostic account reverses Adam and Eve’s violation of God’s command as merely a mindless failure to commit the act rightly in the first place while the serpent is no longer Satan, but an “incognito savior” who makes man aware of his own innate divinity and promises to unlock the god within all of the chosen. This theme of apotheosis underpins neo-Gnosticism, pre-Christian and Christian era Gnosticism and the pagan Mystery religions from the time of Babylon. (3)
This is why demonically deceived Gnostic Progressives look upon themselves as god-like redeemers of a world corrupted by Jehovah, Christianity, faithful Jews, the procreative family, capitalism, property ownership, racism, sexism, homophobia, and class divisions. It is demonic mendacity that allows them to regard “those who oppose them as eternally damned.” (“The Threat We Face: what is the nature of the adversary we are up against?” David Horowitz, frontpagemag.com, October 9, 2013)
Gnostic Progressivism: A Brief Timeline
In 1947, the Progressive Liberal head of UNESCO, Julian Huxley, wrote a book entitled, “UNESCO: Its Purpose and Its Philosophy.” His book was a blueprint for a socialistic, evolutionary pantheist, collectivist New World Order that called for a single ‘new’ spirituality — a mixture of Buddhist materialist-pantheism, Luciferian Theosophy, paganized evolutionary Christianity, neo-Gnosticism, and other worldly traditions. Huxley’s androgynous collectivist system called for one language, one way of thinking, a world food bank, a world bank, and a universal identification system.
Huxley believed a global order could be brought about by syncretizing Christianity with the ‘new’ evolutionary spirituality, thus the task before UNESCO:
“…is to help the emergence of a single world culture with its own philosophy and background of ideas and with its own broad purpose.”(Crossroad.to/globalism/Julian-Huxley)
Huxley spoke of two opposing, antithetical worldviews — one founded on the supernatural, personal, Triune God and creation ex nihilo and the other on anti-creation evolutionary materialism and pantheist monism confronting each other from the West and the East. In describing them he said,
“You may categorize the two philosophies as…individualism versus collectivism or as the American versus the Russian…or as capitalism versus communism, or as Christianity versus Marxism. Can these opposites be reconciled, this antithesis be resolved in a higher synthesis? I believe…this can happen…through the inexorable dialectic of evolution.” (ibid)
The abomination spawned through the inexorable dialectic of evolution is evolutionary theism, the “higher synthesis” resulting from the reconciliation of opposites.
In 1954, Whittaker Chambers warned that Western Progressive Liberal ‘elitists’ were committed to a secret complicity with murderous Communists. Though they outwardly profess dislike for slave labor camps, purges, MVD, famines, et al, it is only,
“….because they are afraid of being caught in them. If they could have Communism without the brutalities of ruling that the Russian experience bred, they have only marginal objections (because they do not find them unjustifiable). Why should they object? What else is socialism but Communism with the claws retracted?” (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America, George H. Nash, p. 253)
Four years later, Conservative intellectual Frank Meyer summarized the Liberal pathology:
“contemporary Liberalism is in agreement with Communism on —the necessity and desirability of socialism (that) all inherited value—theological, philosophical, political (is) without intrinsic virtue or authority; that therefore, no irreconcilable differences exist between it and Communism…” (Ibid, p. 137)
Meyer concludes that amoral Progressive Liberals are,
“… unfit for the leadership of a free society, and (are) intrinsically incapable of offering serious opposition to the Communist offensive.” (ibid)
In his book “The Naked Capitalist,” W. Cleon Skousen exposes an unholy alliance of evil intentioned Progressive Liberal bankers and capitalists, American and English and both left and right, who financed the Bolshevik Revolution and the resulting Soviet Union. Skousen verifies his findings through the writings of Dr. Carroll Quigley, a professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University and mentor to Bill Clinton.
Quigley’s opus, “Tragedy and Hope,” reveals one of the worlds’ best kept secrets: a gargantuan power complex that from the start has been controlling Marxist-Communist, Socialist, and anarchist groups:
“…the power that…Left-wingers exercised was never their own power or communist power but…the power of the international financial coterie.” (p. 954, Tragedy and Hope)
According to Quigley the international financial coterie was the real power behind monstrous crimes against humanity committed by Communist and Nazi Socialist regimes. According to the authors of “The Black Book of Communism,” Communist regimes did not just commit criminal acts but were murderous criminal enterprises in their very essence:
“…all ruled lawlessly and without regard for human life (and) one particular feature of many Communist regimes (was) their use of famine as a weapon. The Bolsheviks had decided to eliminate…any challenge or resistance, even if passive, to their absolute power. This strategy applied not only to groups with opposing political views, but also to such social groups as the nobility, the middle class, the intelligentsia…the clergy…military officers and the police.” (Pp. xvii, 8-9)
Why did Quigley expose the existence of the global financial coterie? Because he said, it is now too late for the little people to turn the tide. He urged them to not fight the noose which is already around their necks, for they will only hang themselves:
“On the other hand, those who go along with the immense pressure which is beginning to be felt by all humanity will eventually find themselves in a man-made millennium of peace and prosperity.” (The Naked Capitalist, Skousen, pp. 4-6)
Recently, top Progressive Leftists met with communists, Transhumanists, Cyborgs, Islamists and other powerful globalists from around the world to push for a ‘new world order.’ Globalists gathered on the Arabian Peninsula for the 2018 World Government Summit where more than a few speakers made clear that individual liberty, self-government, and the “America First” agenda were in the crosshairs. On the other hand:
“Big Government, trans-humanism, and globalism were presented as the solution to basically everything, from alleged man-made “global warming” and health problems to unemployment and even hate. Aside from global governance and statism, one of the key themes of the conference was the merger of man and machine to become “cyborgs.” Artificial Intelligence and “Happiness,” directed by authorities, were also major topics.” (Creepy “World Government Summit” Targets America, Freedom,” Alex Newman, The New American, Feb. 21, 2018)
Gnostic Progressivism: America’s State Worship
Progressives believe their New World Order is a certainty because throughout contemporary America, Gnostic Progressive ideology reigns triumphant. Its’ inverted, dehumanizing evolutionary exegesis has captured the hearts of millions of Americans, including great numbers of Christian seminarians and theologians. Progressive Liberalism, said Wiker, is now our State worship, which is why America has fallen down the rabbit hole into the upside-down fantasy realm of Mad Hatters and Red Queens where up is down, good is evil, male is female and in the eyes of the Gnostic left, American patriotism is not only illegitimate but equivalent to “white nationalism’ and is racist.” (How Identity Politics is Designed to Destroy Us, David Horowitz, FrontPage Magazine, Feb 26, 2018)
The racial identity politics of the Gnostic Progressive Left is part of a larger spectrum of poisonous “identity politics,”
“which has been embraced by the Democratic Party and is better understood as cultural Marxism. Cultural Marxists divide the population into racial, ethnic and gender groups and arrange them in a hierarchy of alleged oppression. This perverse and divisive view of American society was in fact the organizing principle of Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign, which justified her candidacy as ending the alleged inequality of women and the mythical wage-gender pay gap. Her opponents, she said, belonged in a “basket of deplorables,” which she identified as “racists, sexists, homophobes, Islamophobes, xenophobes – you name it.” (ibid)
America’s Crisis is Spiritual
The Western and American crisis is the culmination of modern man’s progressive attempt to deny the existence of the transcendent Holy God and of man’s progressive failure to find meaning and salvation in some wholly immanent (naturalistic) conception of reality. Thus today we stand again on Mars Hill surrounded by hostile Gnostic pagan and mystical pantheist idolaters, Cyborgs, the horned goat-headed demon Baphomet, a host of blue-skinned Hindu gods and goddesses, and Luciferian and Kundalini serpent powers (evolution). The battle against spiritual darkness defies our imagination. (4)
