One World Religion
The Destruction of Christianity by Christians!
Lorraine Day, M.D.
The vast majority of Christians, including Christian pastors and seminary theologians, have never heard the names of those who originated, and are continuing to promote, the One World Religion, names such as Madame Helena Petrova Blavatsky, Annie Besant, Alice Bailey and her Demon Spirit Guide, Djwhal Kuhl, Benjamin Crème, Lord Maitreya, the Lucis Trust (formerly The Lucifer Trust), and the Theosophical Society.
The word Theosohy is a compound Greek word meaning theos, a “divine being,” a “god”; Sophia, “wisdom”; hence divine wisdom. Theosophy is essentially a modern version of Pantheism - worship of the creation rather than the Creator - and Gnosticism, an esoteric system of mystical religious and philosophical doctrines, stressing knowledge as essential to salvation, viewing matter as evil, and variously combining ideas derived from mythology, ancient Greek philosophy, ancient religions, and, eventually, Christianity. In short, it is a system of “salvation by knowledge” rather than salvation through Jesus Christ.
The new twist is the “space alien like” - but clearly demonic - connection whereby Theosophy was “delivered to the first human protoplasts, the first thinking human beings on Earth by highly intelligent spiritual entities from superior spheres.” Some actually claim that some of these “ascended masters” (which are actually demons) have been living on Venus for some 18,000 years and will shortly return. This is no joke! New Age spirituality is commonly based on Theosophical principles.
The Theosophical Society is a worldwide association dedicated to practical realization of the oneness of all life (Pantheism) and to independent spiritual search (Gnosticism). It was founded in New York City in 1875 by Helena P. Blavatsky, a Russian Jew by birth, along with Henry Olcott, William Judge and others. Madame Blavatsky traveled for twenty years in Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Near East studying mysticism and occultism the satanic connection.
The One World Religion, based on Theosophy and Freemasonry is under the auspices of the United Nations and its first goal is to bring all the Protestant churches back to the Catholic Church. Ecumenism has done much to hasten that goal with the signing of agreements such as “ Evangelicals and Catholics Together” and the agreement between the Catholic Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA).
Simultaneously, the pagan religions are being assembled and encouraged to unify. During his time as leader of the Catholic Church, Pope John Paul II traveled to many countries around the world encouraging Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, New Agers, and various other pagan religions toward unification.
Because the churches in America are 501c3 non-profit corporations, their “head” is the Government, instead of Jesus Christ. Therefore, the government has the right to order the churches, as organizations under government authority, to promote or to prohibit certain church doctrines, including the promotion of homosexuality, the support of war, the support of a totalitarian government that has denigrated the Constitution. All of these are against Christ therefore anti-Christ.
A One World Religion is much more easily facilitated when groups of Christians are members of an Organized Church. The leaders of the government-authorized 501c3 “church” can be manipulated and coerced by their governing body the State into following Government policy, something that would be virtually impossible if every Christian were worshiping individually, or in unorganized groups in homes.
The individuals and entities given in the first paragraph of this article should be household names to all Christians as the Bible tells us that if we diligently and independently study God’s Word, God’s spirit “will lead us into ALL truth.” (John 16:13) Unfortunately, almost no Christian has ever heard these names or knows anything about the enormous, sophisticated, Satanic deception that is rapidly gaining momentum and eventually will envelop and totally assimilate all organized Christianity. Protestant Christians will first be joined to Catholics. Then the Protestant/Catholic combination will be merged with paganism, and finally the entire world will embrace atheism. But the New World Order Illuminists, knowing that there is a desire in the heart of every person to worship a “god,” will quickly provide that “god” Satan masquerading as “Lucifer, the Light-Bearer.” The whole world will worship Lucifer as their god.
Lucifer is already the god of Freemasonry.
“Yes, Lucifer is God. . . The Masonic Religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine.”
General Albert Pike, 33rd degree Mason, Sovereign Grand Commander of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Free Masonry, USA.
United Nations Plan to Build a Global Religion
The following article appeared in Insight magazine on October 2, 2000:
Bawa Jain, secretary-general of the U.N.’s Millennium Peace Summit, says he thinks all religions and spiritualists, as well as assorted witch doctors, shamans and medicine men, draw their wisdom from the same source. But he applauds efforts to outlaw proselytizing since it matters little whether one worships a downed World War II airplane or is a snake-handling Baptist or a Roman Catholic. That view has been met with strict opposition from the Vatican and mainline Protestants, who oppose the notion that all religions are equal.
As host of the U.N.’s Millennium Peace Summit of Religious and Spiritual Leaders, Jain told an international meeting of 1,000 delegates that religions need to accept the validity of ALL beliefs to attain world peace. The summit, the first of its kind to be sponsored by the United Nations, was held in New York City Aug. 28-31 just before political leaders gathered for the U.N. Millennium Assembly. The timing was perfect, says Jain, as it allowed religious leaders to update their political counterparts on how to usher in the peace of the new world order through religious universalism.
According to Francis Cardinal Arinze, president for inter-religious dialogue at the Vatican and a speaker at the summit, the Catholic Church also would favor one religion in the world if it were Roman Catholicism. Assorted grand muftis and other true believers hold the same view, again so long as it is their faith that is universally recognized. That each is out to convert the world is to be expected, so the proposed ban on proselytizing is surprising.
So what is the objective here? Is it religious tolerance, unification or subversion of religious faith? Jain tells Insight that he looks forward to a day when religious people no longer insist on a single truth. And the URI (United Religions Initiative), in which Jain is active and which was one of the partners for the summit, takes it even further. URI president Bishop Swing (Bishop of the California Diocese of the Episcopal Church) says, “There will have to be a godly cease-fire, a temporary truce where the absolute exclusive claims of each religion will be honored but an agreed-upon neutrality will be exercised in terms of proselytizing, condemning, murdering or dominating. These will not be tolerated in the United Religions zone.”
The following document is entitled “Preparing the Way for the Reappearance of the World Spiritual Teacher: The Work of the United Nations and the World-Wide Esoteric Community” March, 2001, which discusses “The Externalization of the Hierarchy.”
British neo-Thosophical occultist Alice Bailey, one of the founders of the so-called New Age movement predicted a World Government but favorably argued that it would be synarchist because it was guided by the Masters of the Ancient Wisdom, intent on preparing humanity for the mystical second coming of Christ, and the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.
What is Synarchy?
Synarchy advocates government by secret society or, in its own terms, by an elite of enlightened initiates who rule from behind the scenes. It therefore doesn’t matter which political party holds power in a state or even what political system that state has. Synarchists would step in and take control of the key state institutions identified as the three key pillars of society that, once under the control of the elite, would allow them to rule without the population even being aware of their existence. These were the political and social institutions, the economic institutions, and the religious institutions.
Although Synarchy can therefore rule in any kind of state, for obvious reasons it finds itself more at home among totalitarian regimes. Synarchy is totally opposed to ideas of democracy and social equality, as it believes that some people (i.e., Synarchists) are natural leaders.
Synarchy was founded in the early 1870s by Joseph Alexander Saint-Yves d’Alveydre (1824-1909) and was not a purely political movement. St-Yves believed in the existence of spiritually superior beings that could be contacted telepathically. (This of course is rank Spiritualism Satanism.) Yves’ elite would be made up of people who were in communication with them. He himself claimed that he was in touch with these beings, and that they actually gave him the principles of Synarchy. (Not surprising!)
All these ideas have become, of course, part and parcel of subsequent occult beliefs, mainly because they were taken up, embellished and popularized by Madame Blavatsky (1831-1891), that larger-than-life Russian whose love affair with the mysteries of the East led to her founding the Theosophical movement. These concepts were, in turn, incorporated into the teachings of Alice A. Bailey (1880-1949), which have had a huge influence over the beliefs of the New Age.
Synarchy outlined a specific program for the take-over of states. But Saint-Yves’ aims went much further than that. He wanted the whole of Europe to be governed by Synarchy. Right from the start, an important part of the Synarchists agenda was the creation of the United States of Europe, advocating the removal of national boundaries, customs duties, and so on. In fact, a Synarchist document published in the 1930s refers to one of their key aims as being the formation of a federal European Union. It advocated a United States of Europe.
After World War II, Synarchy adopted a lower profile, but it is still very active. In fact, in recent years Synarchist groups have begun to act more openy both in Europe and the U.S. (www.dxpnet.com/opinion/politics/Anarchism-versus-Synarchism-466795.asp)
Back to Alice Bailey and her New Age Theosophy
According to Bailey, a group of ascended masters called the Great White Brotherhood works on the “inner planes” to oversee the transition to the New World Order, but, for now, the members of this Spiritual Hierarchy are only known to a few occult scientists, with whom they communicate telepathically. But as the need for their personal involvement in the plan increases, there will be an “Externalization of the Hierarchy” and everyone will know of their presence on Earth.
Bailey’s writings have been followed by American writer Marilyn Ferguson’s 1980 book, The Aquarian Conspiracy, A Course in Miracles by Helen Schucman, and the Jesus Seminars founded by Robert Funk and his Westar Institute.
According to Dr. Peter Jones, Scholar in Residence at Westminster Seminary in California (www.crossroad.to/articles2/007/jones-paganization.htm) there is a New Version of Christianity, and here is the real goal. The New Jesus of the Jesus Seminar gives us a new Christianity for the global era. With their new Jesus, the Jesus Seminar feels authorized to address the question of God, with the stated starting point: "It is no longer credible to think that there is a God 'out there.'"
John Shelby Spong, promoted by the Jesus Seminar's Westar Institute, gives us A New Christianity for a New World. Spong's mentor was J. A. T. Robinson, who defended the publication of Lady Chatterley's Lover. Spong claims that stand helped him take a new view of sexuality, which presently includes him being the religion editor on a pornographic website.
Spong credits Lloyd Geering for creating "an audience for me in New Zealand and Australia." Emeritus Professor of Religious Studies at Victoria University, considered one of New Zealand's foremost thinkers, described by Bishop Spong as a "Presbyterian heretic," Geering takes this moment of human history very seriously, setting tomorrow's global culture in the context of Western intellectual history. Embraced by the Jesus Seminar, Geering's books are promoted as programmatic essays for the future earth community -- from the point of view of Christian apostasy and pagan orthodoxy.
According to Geering, tomorrow's culture will be post-Christian, global, and religiously pagan. This agenda is remarkably similar to that found in the ex-Roman Catholic Thomas Berry, The Great Work, which is working its way not simply through biblical texts but through the texts of the UN's global programs.
- Tomorrow's Culture Will Be Post-Christian:
• because evolution proves that human beings, as they evolved, created language, then symbols, then religious explanations.
• The most recent human religious inventions are the monotheistic divine Creator of all things, and the dualism between the spiritual realm of a God who is believed to really exist, and the realm of created life. Classic Christian theology has called this the Creator/creature distinction. However, according to Geering, "The other-world of the dualistic picture…has been slowly dissolving from Western consciousness…," not least "through the most serious condemnation of traditional monotheism,…by feminist thought."
• Feminist thinkers have shown that "the transfer of the seat of sacred power from the earth to the heavens, and the demise of the earth mother occasioned by the victory of the heavenly father, upset the balance of values in the gender relationship… [which] in the pre-monotheistic cultures …were conceived to be in a state of complementary harmony."
• Geering, following Spong, is thus categorical in his rejection of the God of the Bible: "The time for glorifying the Almighty (male) God who supposedly rules is now over." The end of Christianity is so evident "that some future generation may well be moved to discard the Christian calendar entirely, and rename the year 2000 AD as 1 GE, the first year of the global era. Soon the Lord's Supper will only signify human fellowship, and Christmas will be a holiday for the celebration of family.
• Tomorrow's Culture Will Be Global:
--because we live at a moment in time where "the process by which all scientific, cultural, religious and economic human activity is being integrated into one worldwide network."
Thus Geering believes "the UN's time has finally come. It is only within the framework of that global organization that the common problems of mankind can be collectively addressed." Global consciousness is causing us "to discover and acknowledge both cultural diversity and cultural relativity," as well as to create "one unified species [through] a global consciousness/super-consciousness." This possibility leads the analytical intellectual, Geering, to deep expressions of optimistic spirituality, "…possibly the human species," opines Geering, "…could become so united in love and goodwill that there would be some kind of spiritual center…" Indeed, this possibility becomes a requirement. "If the global society emerges, it will require humanity to develop a new consciousness and a new form of spirituality." So, what kind of new spirituality will this be?
- Tomorrow's Culture Will Be Religiously Pagan:
• because "the new story, which has become basic to the global world, begins with a new word or idea:…evolution.
• Geering takes this word "in its broadest sense of change and development from within." Following the logic of his thoughts, he states unambiguously: "Unlike the dualistic character of the Christian world, the new global world is monistic [italics mine]. That means that the universe is conceived as essentially one…"
• Of course, this is not new. It is classic spiritual paganism, and Geering, in spite of his all-pervading explanatory principle of evolutionary progress, has to admit with "surprise" that " the new story has… . "link[s] with the pre-[monotheistic]…nature religions in which the ancients thought of themselves as the children of the earth mother."
• In an odd turn of events, contemporary "spiritual" evolution goes backwards! Biblical theism disturbed our evolutionary progress. The clocks have to be put back. As C. S. Lewis said some fifty years ago, noting religious paganism's perennial character, [he called it 'pantheism'], "…by a strange irony, each new relapse into this immemorial 'religion' is hailed as the last work in novelty and emancipation…so far from being the final refinement, pantheism is, in fact, the permanent natural bent of the human mind."
• Not surprisingly, the same old symbol, Geering believes, will serve for the spanking new future planetary religion. In the religion of the coming global society "Mother Earth would be the consciously chosen symbol referring to everything about the earth's eco-system." He notes that "The loving care of Mother Earth is in many quarters replacing the former sense of obedience to the Heavenly Father."
• In the religion of the coming global society, the forces of nature, the process of evolution and the existence of life itself will be the objects of…veneration." Again, this is pure paganism, as the New Testament affirms -- "worship of the creation rather than the Creator." These expressions, without surprise, fit naturally "the Buddhist, Hindu and Chinese notions of non-theistic spirituality," so a coming together of all the pagan religions is in the cards.
Sounding like a paragon of tolerance, Geering states: "There will not be 'only one way'…groups must learn to be inclusive…" In other words, there will only be the "one, inclusive, pagan, way," and this "must" be the case. This is not tolerance, but a veiled and hence dangerous form of intolerance - but, for the survival of the planet, this is the way it must be!
We are in the presence of a powerful pagan/Gnostic theological agenda, claiming to be spanking new, objective and scientific, but as old as the hills.
Blavatsky, Bessant, and Bailey
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky
Theosophy (literally means ‘divine wisdom’), the belief that all religions are attempts by humanity to approach the absolute, and that each religion therefore has a portion of truth, was promoted in the nineteenth century by Russian-born (Ukraine) Helena Blavatsky. She founded the Theosophical Society in 1875. Her most popular work was a two-volume book she wrote titled ‘The Secret Doctrine,’ in which she states:
“Lucifer represents.. Life.. Thought.. Progress.. Civilization.. Liberty.. independence.. Lucifer is the Logos.. the Serpent, the Savior.” pp 171, 225, 255 (Volume II)
“It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God.” Pp 215, 216, 220, 245, 255, 533 (Volume I)
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky 32 Co-Freemason
The Secret Doctrine
Clearly, Helena Blavatsky was a devout Satan worshiper. She was also one of the pioneers of today’s occult New Age Movement. Theosophy, Satan worship, New Age, Freemasonry, and witchcraft are inseparable. They all hate God, hate the Word of God, and are committed to a One World Order.
The Doctrine of the Theosophical Society
It is a mix of Hinduism, Buddhism, Spiritualism, and Gnostic “Christianity, with Masonic rituals all based in the visions and revelations of Madame Blavatsky by the “Mahatnas” of Tibet and by the Spiritualism she practices in the U.S.
The “Mahatnas” are the “Great White Fraternity,” among them, Buddha, Krishna, and Jesus. . . and the theosophians try to get in contact with them by means of all kinds of occultism. In theosophy, every man and woman are “God” . . .though they cannot create stars or atoms. . . but through reincarnations they will realize that they are “God.” Theosophy teaches that Jesus Christ was divine only in the same sense that you and I are divine, and eventually, we will all be divine.
Helena Blavatsky heralded the dawn of the New Age Movement. Her writings are the foundation for many occult fraternities. After publishing monumental works such as Isis Unveiled and The Secret Doctrine, the Theosophical Society was formed to spread her teachings worldwide. She claimed to receive her revelations from Secret Chiefs, or disembodied Ascended Masters who claimed to be aiding humanity to evolve into a race of supermen. Freemasonry took notice and many soon proclaimed her an occult genius, as did Manly P. Hall, 33rd degree Mason and prolific writer on the subject of Freemasonry.
The first President of the Theosophical Society was lawyer, Henry Steel Olcott, who first met Madame Blavatsky at a séance conducted by the Eddy brothers of Chittenden, Vermont where he was following his interest in the Satanic Spiritualist movement. Both Olcott and Blavatsky converted to Buddhism in 1880, as they continued their Thoesophical Society.
A prominent British Theosophist, Annie Besant (1847-1933), was a leading speaker for the Fabian Society (a Communist organization) and the Marxist Social Democratic Federation. She also became a co-freemason (the freemasonry organization that accepted women as well as men). In 1890 Besant met Helena Blavatsky and over the next few years her interest in Theosophy grew while her interest in secular matters waned. In 1907 she became President of the Theosophical Society.
The Lucis Trust is the Spiritual foundation of the United Nations. It also publishes and disseminates United Nations material. Lucis Trust was established in 1922 as Lucifer Trust by Alice Bailey as the publishing company to disseminate the books of Bailey and Madame Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society.
Because of the public outrage over the name Lucifer Trust, the name was changed to Lucis Trust. It is a devastating indictment of the New Age and Pagan nature of the U.N.
Lucis Trust propagates the work of an “Ascended Master” a demon - (supposed “Tibetan Ascended Master”) named Djwahl Khul who channeled through Alice Bailey.
The Lucis Trust Publishing Company and their many fronts and organizations worship an “Externalized Hierarchy” of “Ascended Masters,” who carry out the work of a Luciferian “master plan” (Adam Weishaupt’s 1775 Illuminati blueprint) for the establishment of a permanent “Age of Aquarius” ruled by one “SANAT Kumera,” (notice the name SATAN has been rearranged, just as SANTA) the “Lord of the World.”
At one time, the Lucis Trust office in New York was located at 666 United Nations Plaza. Currently it is located on Wall Street, but it continues to maintain the U.N. meditation room.
Lucis Trust is sponsored by among others, Robert McNamara, former Minister of Defense of the U.S., president of the World Bank, member of the Rockefeller Foundation, and Thomas Watson of IBM and the former ambassador in Moscow.
Lucis Trust sponsors among others, the following organizations:
“World Goodwill” is an official non-governmental organization within the United Nations. The stated aim of this group is:
“To cooperate in the world of preparation for the reappearance of the Christ.” (One Earth, the magazine of the Findhorn Foundation, Oct/Nov 1986, Vol 6, Issue 6, p 24)
But the esoteric (hidden, occult) work inside the United Nations does not stop with such recognized occult groupings. Much of the impetus for this process was initiated through the offices of two Secretary-Generals of the U.N., Dag Hammarskjold (Secretary-General of the UN: 1953-1961) and U Thant (Secretary General of the UN, 1961-1971) who succeeded him, and one Assistant Secretary-General, Dr. Robert Muller.
Sri Chinmoy, the New Age guru, meditation leader at the U.N., wrote:
“The United Nations is the chosen instrument of God; to be a chosen instrument means to be a divine messenger carrying the banner of God’s inner vision and outer manifestation.”
William Jasper, author of “A New World Religion” describes the religion of the U.N.:
“. . . a weird and diabolical convergence of New Age mysticism, pantheism, aboriginal animism atheism, Communism, socialism, Luciferian occultism, apostate Christianity, Islam, Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism.”
On the main page of the Satanic Lucis Trust website, they state:
The activities of the Lucis Trust promote the education of the human mind towards recognition and practice of the spiritual principles and values upon which a stable and interdependent world society may be based. The Lucis Trust is non-political and non-sectarian. It sponsors no special creed or dogma.” (http://www.lucistrust.org)
The problem is that Madame Blavatsky, Annie Besant, and Alice Bailey those whose principles are the foundation of the United Nations and its One World Religion, were all worshippers of Satan. Here is an excerpt more claptrap from Alice Bailey’s book, Initiation, Human and Solar, pp 43-44.
“The World Teacher is that Great Being Whom the Christian calls the Christ. He is known also in the Orient as the Bodhisattva, and as the Lord Maitreya, and is the One looked for by the devout Mohammedan, under the name of the Iman Madhi. He it is Who presided over the destinies of life since about 600 B.C. and He it is Who has come out among men before, and Who is again looked for. He is the great Lord of Love and of Compassion, just as his predecessor, the Buddha, was the Lord of Wisdom. Through Him flows the energy of the second aspect, reaching Him direct from the heart centre of the Planetary Logos via the heart of SANAT Kumara. He works by means of a meditation centered within the heart. He is the World Teacher, the Master of the Masters, and the Instructor of the Angels, and to Him is committed the guidance of the spiritual destinies of men, and the development of the realization within each human being that he is a child of God and a son of the Most High.
“Just as the Manu is occupied with the providing of the type and forms through which consciousness can evolve and gather experience, thus making existence in its deepest sense possible, so the World Teacher directs that indwelling consciousness in its life or spirit aspect, seeking to energize it within the form so that, in due course of time, that form can be discarded and the liberated spirit return whence it came. Ever since He left the earth, as related with approximate accuracy in the Bible story (though with much error in detail) has He stayed with the sons of men; never has He really gone, but only in appearance, and in a physical body. He can be found by those who know the way, dwelling in the Himalayas, and working in close co-operation with His two real Brothers, the Manu and the Mahachohan. Daily He pours out His blessing on the world, and daily He stands under the great pine tree in His garden at the sunset hour with hands uplifted in blessing over all those who truly and earnestly seek to aspire. To Him all seekers are known, and though they may remain unaware of Him, the light which He pours forth stimulates their desire, fosters the spark of struggling life and spurs on the aspirant until the momentous day dawns when they stand face to face with the One Who being “lifted up” (occultly understood) is drawing all men unto Himself as the Initiator of the sacred mysteries.”
Obviously these Satanic organizations have taken the above quotes right out of the Bible, quotes meant for Jesus Christ, and have applied them to the “New Age False Christ the Anti-Christ.
This pretentious silliness is so absurd that one has a hard time taking it seriously. However, we must understand that these people are deadly serious and they will do great harm to those who refuse to submit to their philosophy. They believe that in order for mankind to continue evolving into “gods” that everyone on earth must believe as they do. They are fully prepared to “lovingly” (as they describe it) exit us from this life by any means necessary. And of course, it’s “for our own good” because we will “be back” through reincarnation to have another “go” at it! They are doing it “for our own good.”
Alice Bailey, Freemasonry, and Madame Blavatsky, have succeeded greatly in their goal to blind humanity. All over the world today, billions of people are trusting in some false religion to save them. All mainstream world religions either have been started, or infiltrated by, the Freemasonry occult.
So few Christians are studying their Bibles for themselves, that, when presented with this kind of meaningless philosophy, as quoted above, that is really nothing more than high-sounding gibberish, they will become so confused they will jump on the New Age bandwagon, thinking it’s just an expansion of “Christianity.” Almost no Christians are able to staunchly defend their beliefs from the Bible. Many will make an attempt, but most will be overwhelmed rapidly by the slick presentations of these New Age propaganda masters.
After these “Christians” have been thoroughly trounced by their opposition because of a woeful lack of in-depth Bible study over many years, preferring a “social” gospel and a schmoozing, “feel good” relationship with their fellow church members, instead of a strong personal relationship with Jesus Christ, their response may well be a simple shrug of their shoulders and a whisper of, “Whatever,” as they again pick up their iPhone to “tweet” their friends being totally unaware that by “signing on with the U.N./One World Government” they have just joined forces with Satan himself.
God Has Warned Us
This is precisely what the apostle Paul warns us about in 1 Corinthians, Chapters 1 and 2.
“For the message of the cross is to them that are lost (perishing) foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the (supposedy) wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the intelligent I shall be repudiating. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age (eon)? Does not God make stupid the wisdom of this world?
For since, in fact, in the wisdom of God, the world through (their) wisdom knew not God, God delights, through the (supposed) foolishness of the (true) message, to save those who are believing. . .
Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
For you see your calling, brethren, how that there are not many wise according to flesh, and not many powerful, not many noble are called,
But the stupidity of the world God chooses, that He may be disgracing the wise, and the weakness of the world God chooses, that He may be disgracing the strong, and the ignoble and the contemptible things of the world God chooses, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are:
That no flesh should be boasting in God’s sight. 1 Cor 1:18-29
“When God’s image, Jesus Christ, was present among men, they not only failed to appreciate Him, but displayed the innate hatred of their carnal religions hearts by dooming Him to the death of the vilest criminal. He Who spoke as never man spoke should have been welcomed by the wise men of the world, but they showed the essential stupidity of human wisdom by gibbeting the embodiment of ALL wisdom upon the ignominious cross.
“To this day, the great, the noble, and the wise are a small minority among the true saints of God. It is a matter of extreme thankfulness that this is so. If high birth or earthly wisdom or any other attainment were necessary to His choice, how few would be able to measure up to His standard, and how little glory would there be for Him!” Concordant Commentary, pp 249-250
But in the gospels we see lowly, uneducated fishermen having more wisdom than the philosophers who shut God out of their lives.
That your faith should not be in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
Yet wisdom we are speaking among the mature (in Christ), yet wisdom not of this age, neither of the chief men of this age, who are being discarded. But we are speaking God’s wisdom in a secret, wisdom that has eon concealed, that God designates before - - before the eons, for our glory, that not one of the chief men of this eon knows
For if they knew, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Cor 2:5-7
“Though God has repudiated the world’s wisdom, there is a divine wisdom, of which the world knows nothing, that even the saints do not apprehend until they attain maturity.” Ibid. p 250
Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Which things also we speak, not in the words that man’s wisdom teacheth, but which God’s breath of holiness teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual
But the natural (soulish) man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they (spiritual things) are (only) spiritually discerned. . .
For who hath known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Cor 2:12-16
“This epistle of 1 Corinthians is a severe rebuke of the present day ecclesiastical systems, and shows why so few are able to apprehend the marvelous mysteries of Paul’s later epistles. If the Corinthians were so carnal that the apostle could not reveal these to them, it is no marvel that they are hid from the immature believer of today.” Ibid p 248
Philosophy has replaced spiritual wisdom in Christendom today. The vast majority of Christians never get passed “sense knowledge” the knowledge obtained through their five senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell. They have no “revelation knowledge” no understanding of spiritual things because wisdom only comes from God.
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men generously without reproach, and it shall be given to him.”
But let him ask in faith, doubting nothing, for he who is doubting is like the surge of the sea, driven by the wind and tossed.
For let not that man think that he shall receive anything from the Lord - - a double minded man is unstable in all his ways. James 1:5-8
The supposed erudite leaders of the world the United Nations/One World Government rulers - are so stupid that they believe in a religion channeled by demons. Madame Blavatsky, Annie Besant, and Alice Bailey, all worshippers of Lucifer, produced a “religion” that is a combination of New Age, Freemasonry, and Spiritualism. It comes straight from the mouth of Satan.
