It’s no longer easy to be a faithful Christian in America, said Dr. Robert P. George, chairman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. Our culture increasingly condemns Christian beliefs as bigoted and hateful:
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,
Dr. George told the prayer breakfast:
If anything, some heterodox evolutionary theologians and their gullible Christian flocks, both evolutionary theist and progressive creationist, are at least as hostile if not more so toward orthodox defenders of the Genesis origin account 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:
According to this counter-intuitive Gnostic pagan laced tale of nonsense, evolutionary science, not God’s Revelation, is a reality within 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’ and ‘traditionalist’ 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 conceptions 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:
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:
By its’ nature evolutionism belongs to the category of naturalism and materialism (all that exists is nature, matter and cosmos), making it antithetical, therefore in fierce opposition to the infinite personal Triune God Who spoke creation into existence and Who dwells in the supernatural dimension outside of the cosmos. The personal Triune God is not within but outside of His creation – the natural dimension of space, time, matter and energy – thus He is not subject to the laws of science and manipulation by power-seeking men:
Only by conceptually murdering the supernatural Triune God and replacing Him with a ‘god force’ 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. It consists of multitudinous layers of exoteric (outer)and esoteric (inner) meaning. Darwin’s theory occupies two or three outer layers. The inner or unseen 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 (change/transformism).
On ancient pagan conceptions of reincarnation and spiritual evolution and even transgenderism, early Church Father Gregory of Nyssa said:
Evolution appeared in Christendom, first toward the end of the Medieval era, and then more openly during the Renaissance when certain Christian theologians, mystics and scholars such as Emanuel Swedenborg had discovered Chaldean astrology, Hermetic magic, occult Jewish Babylonian 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. These ancient occult traditions were 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 ritual procedures and spiritual evolution, is the best proof of the divinity of Christ consciousness. (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 occult 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,
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. Hominids are 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’ theologianss reject what God said in favor of what man said, their starting point is fallible secular dating, hence they,
Among the scientifically affirmed finds showing that Neanderthals were human are:
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:
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 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. 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,
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):
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.” That decision was 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 substance of ‘man is the measure of all things’ is idolatry. The beginning of idolatry is pride (narcissism), which together with selfishness and envy demonstrates preference for one’s self instead of the Triune God, His Revelation (hence ‘True Truth’) and neighbor (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,
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:
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 envious and resentful of Higher Authority, True Truth, ‘other’ (unwanted, inconvenient human life) and moral restrictions and limitations?
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”‘?
Answer: Not orthodox Creationists or any of the faithful.
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.

Bishop Sheen said it best when he said, paraphrasing, that once anyone abandons belief in God they will not then believe in nothing; they will then believe in anything.
We can say thank you to Cultural Marxism and to culturally Marxist formal education. Scratch a Darwinist today and you will find a Marxist.
And they are so convinced in error that even in the face of scientific genetic entropy they will not accept any argument or evidence that upsets their fanatical faith in their Darwinist Scientism.

Darwinian evolution gained popularity for the same reason communism or any other godless ideology gained popularity. Namely, it told people what they wanted to hear; that they can do what they want. Josh Waller, pastor of Christ the King Church, Tallahassee, Florida, posted on GAB
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.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
