In our own time, Oneism–the pagan and occult pantheist antithesis of the Word of God–remains substantially unchanged from what it was in Paul’s time:
The Stoics and Epicureans were the two most prominent schools of nature philosophy, nature science and nature religion of that time. Theirs was a humanist, animist, monist, evolutionary, and occult scientific (knowledge of the unseen) worldview predicated upon a one-dimensional universe (Oneism/monism) of animated (evolving) physical matter or divine psychic energy (spiritualized matter). They were the physicists of their age.
The Greek Atomist Epicurus (341-270 BC) is the father of contemporary scientific materialism. The principal tenet of Atomism teaches that the world was not created by any deity, or with any design, but came about by a chance movement of physical atoms of various sizes and magnitude that cemented together and so formed the world.
The world and everything in it were not created but instead the accidental emergent or evolved products of a great cosmic event (exploding Cosmic Egg/Big Bang) that spontaneously generated animated physical matter pregnant with life from nothing. This way of thinking excludes everything unseen, such as the human soul, mind, angels and demons, and holds that humans are aggregates of physical matter in motion in a human form and the human consciousness an active principle of grey matter.
This ancient pagan way of thinking forms the basis of the materialist psychology of Sigmund Freud, Darwin’s evolutionary conception, modern evolutionary biology, secular humanism, secular trans-humanism, Marxist quasi-pantheist and animist dialectical materialism, and John Dewey, co-author of the 1933 Humanist Manifesto and father of progressive education, a leading figure in the ‘dumbing down’ of American schools and the transition of American society away from its founding Biblical heritage in favor of pagan Humanism:
Though modern materialism originated in the metaphysics of ancient Egyptians and then later Ionians and Stoics during the sixth century BC, it was the Atomists (Leucippus/Democritus, 460-357 BC; Epicurus, 342-270 BC; and Lucretius, 96-55 BC) who methodically developed Atomism, the root and source of modern scientific evolutionary materialism: (2)
Modern materialists such as Julien de la Mettrie (1709-51), Paul Henri Thiery, and Baron D’Holbach (1723-89) all agreed that the human mind is the property of physical matter and man nothing but a bio-machine. La Mettrie speculated that machine-mans rational life is entirely determined by physical causes running the gamut from raw meat, to climate, blood circulation, and gender. Genetic inheritance, said la Mettrie, causes machine-man to commit crime. This view casts parents into the role of “first cause” and would later manifest itself in the belief that State ‘experts,’ or Hillary’s “village” experts should have control of children. (pp. 16-18)
Pierre Simon Laplace (1749-1827) viewed scientific materialism, as not only the pursuit of God-like omniscience but of the Holy Grail itself – power to create a New Man. If an intelligence could grasp “at a given instant…all the forces by which nature is animated” proclaimed Laplace, it could devise a mathematical formula that would predict everything that would ever happen, and “nothing would be uncertain, and the future, like the past, would be open to its eyes.” Scientists should reduce everything in the universe to mechanical laws that could be expressed in terms of mathematics, advised Laplace, for the promise of such knowledge was incredible power…even over life and mind itself. (p. 20)
Herbert Spencer, Fechner, Lotze, Wundt, and the pantheist Ernst Haeckel, inventor of the fraudulent scientism dictum – ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny – all agreed that life and mind are properties of matter. Haeckel moreover imagined ether to be the primitive life-making substance, which like the primitive fire of the Stoics, changed one part of itself into inert mass while the other part became the active principle, spirit. Today, many scientists routinely resort to Haeckel’s postulate without ever inquiring into its pantheist implications.
Haeckel would later write,
During the century to follow, Charles Darwin (1809-82) helped spread pagan evolutionary materialism to the masses and eager seminarians and theologians.
As Stephen Jay Gould argues,
According to Darwin, natural selection (energy-god) and the laws of heredity acting on matter produced mind, morality, and civilization. By describing how deified natural mechanisms caused the complexity of life to emerge from deified matter, Darwin helped transform Oneist materialism from a fantastically bizarre tale told by power-mad Prometheans on the fringe of society to a hallowed scientism principle enshrined and worshipped by modern scientism and ‘enlightened’ pagan Westerners.
Together, Darwinism and the Epicurean proposition that all that exists is matter in motion within the Void (Oneism/monism) are the first principles of the naturalistic worldview proffered by atheists such as Richard Dawkins and other evolutionary materialists.
The Stoics were a celebrated school of severe and lofty mystical pantheist nature sages. Their main principle was that the universe of divine psychic energy was under the law of an iron necessity (determinism in Darwinian creeds and karma in Eastern creeds), the spirit of which was what they called the Deity, World Soul, or Goddess of the Earth (Gaia, Astarte, Isis, Cybele).
Stoic metaphysics has much in common with Eastern mystical pantheism, thus reality is not the physical world but rather the spiritual while the human spirit (divine spark) is deity in the same way that, “The Self is Brahman” (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad 4.4.5)
Modernized Stoic pantheism and its Eastern occult counterpart forms the basis, for instance, of Carl Jung’s psychology, Wicca, occult Luciferian Green New Age spirituality, Luciferian Theosophy, spiritual or cosmic trans-humanism, Teilhard’s Omega, Leonard Sweet’s Quantum Spirituality, modern quantum physics, global warming/change, sustainability, and Royal Astronomer Lord Martin Rees.
Rees believes that super intelligent, highly evolved extraterrestrials might be capable of simulating in their brains or in a super-computer the complex history of our universe.
This means the universe we inhabit is a simulation lacking real substance and existing only as a mental construction in the minds of the extraterrestrials that seeded our world with life and travel through time in order to control man’s evolutionary progress. (Scientific Mythologies, James A. Herrick, p. 216) (3)
Rees proposal is similar to the hypothesis presented by Olaf Stapledon, a scientist who has always kept one foot firmly planted in neo-Gnostic science fiction accounts and imagines our universe to be an artifact of the Star Maker. Building off of Stapledon’s fantasy Carl Sagan suggests that we are “star folk” made of “star stuff.” (6)
In the caption of his book, “Just Six Numbers,” Rees reveals the ancient occult basis of his propositions:
As a powerful occult symbol, the Ouroboros means the seething power, creative and/or evolutionary impulse or energy of the serpent (Oneist Substance) figuratively depicted as either a serpent or dragon eating its own tail. The serpent’s body is often depicted as the Cosmic Astral Tree of Life.
Stoic and Epicurean sages received their ideas from ancient Babylonians, Egyptians and Hindus, whose one-dimensional, evolutionary nature systems extended back centuries before Greek and Roman civilization to ancient Sumeria and the Babylonian Enuma Elish.
The Enuma Elish is the original evolutionary cosmogony, the source and model for all ancient and modern evolutionary cosmogonies, Mysteries, nature religions, evolutionary science, philosophy and evolutionary theism. Though it was found in Nineveh, the capital of the Assyrians, evidence indicates that it dates back to the Sumerians. It begins with an evolutionary account of beginnings.
Thorkild Jacobsen comments:
In “The Making of the New Spirituality: The Eclipse of the Western Religious Tradition,” James Herrick writes that modern physicists claim to have irrefutable scientific proof for the foundational premises of pantheist spirituality. (p. 169)
For example, in the “Quantum Society,” physics writers Danah Zohar and Ian Marshall advocate a new occult science of pantheism, psychology and sociology grounded in a breathtaking range of practical implications in the fundamental physics that underlies all else in the universe lending itself to a revitalized ancient mystical pantheist and monist understanding of the nature of the mind,
The two men also find that when physicists probe the deep recesses of the universe they are confronted by a void, an infinite field of energy they call the ‘quantum vacuum,’ that seems empty yet is where all physical objects originate.
The ultimate discovery of quantum physics is trumpeted as scientific proof of the basic correctness of revitalized Babylonian pantheist theology and the men call their divine energy field the quantum vacuum. Their quantum vacuum is strikingly similar to some Hindu and Buddhist accounts of the origins of everything that exists as emanations from the Void.
Nor do Zohar and Marshall deny the similarity:
From Sumeria to our own age, the Void has been viewed as the ultimate ground of being and true mystical religious experience. As the beginning and ending of all reality, the Void or vacuum is “the vast sea of all else that is.” Moreover, humans are nothing more than excited aspects or modes of the Void:
This means that since the soul-substance of the Void and divine soul or spark of the dehumanized ‘human’ are one and the same substance, ‘god’ is therefore within the human brain. Reality is therefore within human consciousness because man is an aspect of the Void:
Throughout the apostate and paganized West and America there are two basic Oneist views of reality held by Western Power Elites and their Ruling Class lackey’s. They fall into either category one or two below: (4)
Mystical pantheism’s Brahman (the truly Absolute nothingness; void), Quantum Void (nothingness), Quantum Energy Field (nothingness), New Age Luciferian Spirituality’s view of Void and nothingness, and Liberal (Modernist, Progressive) Christianity (mystical pantheism/nothingness in Christian clothes).
The common denominator of these Oneist views of reality is that god is an impersonal force or energy from the void or abyss that is part of everyone and everything.
This view deifies already existing creation, hence has no Ultimate Source for life, conscious life, mankind’s inner being (soul), truth, morality, purpose, and meaning. Its deified void, abyss, nothingness, or energy field is ‘one’ with the cosmos and only ‘chosen’ initiates, gurus, mystical scientists, occultists, mystics, and god-men can gain knowledge and powers from connection with deity (void).
Though this view is being eclipsed by the first view it remains the reigning view of Oneist reality throughout the West and the United States.
This view deifies the void, chaos, nothingness, energy field, waters, or abyss (Genesis 1:2; Revelation 9:1-12; 17:8; 20:1,3) as first cause of all things. It is the Void of absolute nothingness from which emanate evolutionary energies that work upon matter to produce life. But like the first view, nothingness produces nothing since it has no Ultimate Source for life, conscious life, inner being, and truth.
The only true God is the personal Triune Creator of heaven, earth, and all life. He is the Truth, Way, and Life. He is the God of Revelation. His Living Word is His creative and life-giving power by which He created the world (Genesis 1:1; Isaiah 42:5) and actively sustains the world (Colossians 1:17) He exists as three Persons—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3: 17). All life comes from Him and is completely dependent on Him (1 Tim. 6-13; Acts 17:25; John 1:4; John 5:26). God is infinite (1 Timothy 1:17), incomparable (2 Samuel 7:22), and eternally unchanging (Malachi 3:6). God exists everywhere (Psalm 139:7-12), knows everything (Psalm 147:5; Isaiah 40:28), and has all power and authority (Ephesians 1; Revelation 19:6).
For fifteen hundred years, Christendom and then later Protestant America, had followed St. Augustine (AD 354-430) in affirming that as all men are the spiritual image-bearers of the transcendent, personal Triune God then it logically follows that each human is a person–a trinity of being — of soul, spirit, and body:
The Apostle Paul warned against being taken captive by ‘elemental spirits’ that are ‘not after Christ.’ By perpetrating deceptions through the elements and powers of the cosmos, Satan lures people away from the Lord Jesus Christ and toward hostile Powers, Principalities, and other evil spirits that inhabit the universe. What this means is that the Oneist worldview and impersonal, mystical evolutionary ‘powers’ ascribed by evolutionary theologians and their pagan counterparts to natural selection, chance, the Void, Gaia, Teilhard’s Omega, Christ-consciousness, the Force, evolution, and other idols of mans’ imagination are the doctrines of demons and powers of elemental spirits applied to the inventions of deluded, depraved, superstitious men.
Over the past three hundred years the Word of God and the Western Christian worldview has been incrementally eclipsed by the doctrines of demons and the empty deceit of dehumanizing pagan and mystical pantheist ways of thinking that have been artfully revamped and revised for modern Western consumption.
In his insightful essay, “Why Christianity Lost America?” Vishal Mangalwadi, author of “The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization,” argues that Christianity lost America because 20th-century evangelicalism branded itself as the party of faith while Oneist pagan secularism (science, evolution, university, media) became the party of truth. This is one reason why 70% of Christian youth give up meaningful involvement with the church when they grow up.
In other words, Christians have bought into a vast cosmic deception that defines ancient pagan and pantheist spirituality as “factual” empirical science. Thus, if evolution and pagan presuppositions (doctrines of demons) are true then the Genesis account is not true, so why bother with Christian theism if it has been scientifically invalidated? This is one reason why ancient pagan and pantheist spirituality revamped for our age has replaced the living, personal Triune God and His Word as the great explanation of the origin and subsequent existence of life in all of its forms.
The pagan and pantheist way of thinking represented by evolutionary biology, scientism, occult Eastern pantheist creeds, the Stoics and Epicureans are the principal enemies of the Word of God and by extension, of salvation unto life eternal. Thus, in obedience to our Lord, and as an act of Christ-like love for the faithful and all who are open to truth, we are to actively contend against these infernal doctrines of demons and pagan teachings even though our paganized culture and increasingly paganized church not only ridicule, scoff, scorn and reject us but accuse us of insanity, intolerance, racism, homophobia, transphobia, divisiveness, hate, and terrorism.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

My faith in empirical science as an honest quest for truth, which has been increasingly shaken over the years, is now destroyed. These "scientists" are nuts; they are really "hyper-religionist" but in the wrong direction. They are not real scientists, but gurus, or guru wannabes.
This unveils so much about Darwinism, Freudianism, Marxism, and the Marxocrat Party, which should be recognized as a seditious anti-Christian, anti-American and even terrorist organization.
Thank you for this.

"My faith in empirical science as an honest quest for truth, which has been increasingly shaken over the years, is now destroyed"
Very many Westerners and Americans will not be able to embrace your position or my essay. This is because their pride will not allow them to accept that they have been deceived.
Others will reject because evolution and pagan and pantheism allow them to be in control, or so they believe.
Only those who love truth will turn away from Satan's deception and accept Christ as Lord and Savior.
Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport.
Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.
Seek the Truth; find the Way; live the Life; please God, and live forever.
