Western nations like US have several centuries of public policy and courts tied to HUMANIST MORALS AND ETHICS-----or some people say RELIGIOUS MORALS AND ETHICS. This is what LEFT SOCIAL PROGRESSIVE capitalism is-------it is ECONOMY AND DEVELOPMENT tied to religious/humanist MORALS AND ETHICS.
Today, we have with CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA an attack upon our civil society tied to this several centuries of MORAL AND ETHICAL public policy and courts.
People who have been enslaved will say WHAT MORALS AND ETHICS----and they are correct. Real application of CHRISTIAN morals and ethics does not allow for slavery, brutality, injustice.
We speak often of how FREEMASONRY was created by OLD WORLD KINGS to undermine civil society-----break down all that CHRISTIAN MORALS AND ETHICS when they wanted-----OLD WORLD KINGS like to use our BIBLICAL REVELATIONS------END WORLD stories to pretend GOD is acting upon us.
In fact, it is simply a few SHIP OF FOOLS as OLD WORLD KINGS choosing to throw civil societies into FAILED STATES for sacking, looting, raping, and pillaging----
YOU KNOW----LIKE CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA ---NOW TRUMP.
'What are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?
The Apostle John was given a vision by God about things that would occur in the last days immediately prior to the second coming of Christ, so in a sense God "unveiled" to John what will occur in the future'.
This is why we say often----what is happening these several decades is in DIVINE PROPHESY-------it is NOT END TIMES. It is simply a global 1% OLD WORLD KINGS------who are NOT RELIGIOUS choosing to dismantle and END all WESTERN RELIGIONS----MUSLIM, HEBREW, CHRISTIAN, as well as modern HINDI-BUDDHIST. These few people are really working to create their own new religious stance which will look like 3000BC HINDI-BRAHMIN-----
What is that? It is a global 1% up in THE CLOUDS----you know---the internet/surveillance structure PRETENDING to be gods and goddesses.
We will take today to discuss this article below pointing out how FREEMASONRY controlled by GLOBAL 1% OLD WORLD KINGS is corrupting our REAL religious beliefs ---no matter which religion---I stay with CHRISTIAN because that is my history. All modern religions are based upon these same early religious years 1000BC----1000AD.
What are the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?
The term "four horsemen of the Apocalypse" comes from the Bible's book of Revelation, specifically chapter 6 of that book. "Apocalypse" is another word for "Revelation", and means "the unveiling" in the Greek language. The Apostle John was given a vision by God about things that would occur in the last days immediately prior to the second coming of Christ, so in a sense God "unveiled" to John what will occur in the future.
One of the things God disclosed to John was that a triune series of judgments will occur at some point that will bring great destruction upon the world. These are described in chapters 6-18 in Revelation and consist of what are called the seal, trumpet, and bowl judgments. These collective judgments are also described by Jesus in Matthew 24 (cf. also Luke 21 and Mark 13) and are often called the "great tribulation," a term used by Jesus: "For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be" (Matthew 24:21).
The first series of judgments that are revealed are the seal judgments. In chapter 5 of Revelation, John sees God the Father holding a scroll that is sealed with seven seals. The scroll itself represents the title deed to the earth and is Christ's inheritance, which belongs to Him alone. Chapter 5 clearly states that only Jesus is worthy to open the scroll, and with each seal that is broken, a corresponding judgment occurs as Christ reclaims what has been stolen from Him by Satan and an unbelieving world.
The first four seals are portrayed as four different horses and riders. Each is commanded to come forward from four beings that are likely special angels called cherubim. The first horseman is described in this manner: "Now I watched when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals, and I heard one of the four living creatures say with a voice like thunder, 'Come!' And I looked, and behold, a white horse! And its rider had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he came out conquering, and to conquer" (Revelation 6:1–2).
Horses in Scripture are typically associated with triumph, majesty, power, and conquest. The first horse is white, which is what a conquering king would use to ride into a nation/city that he had just successfully defeated. The horse's rider wears a special crown, which in the first century was made of foliage and signified extremely high status. The rider carries a bow, but no arrows are mentioned, which communicates that the rider is a warrior, but that he will initially conquer not through force, but by peace.
Most theologians agree that the rider represents the Antichrist, who will be "given" his crown by a world that elects him to bring about the peace and safety they desperately crave. The Antichrist will promise peace and make a peace treaty with Israel (cf. Daniel 9:27), but in the end it proves to be a false peace that he uses to entrap an unsuspecting world. This fact is described by the prophet Daniel: "And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many" (Daniel 8:25 KJV, emphasis added).
It will not be long before that peace is shattered, but by then it will be too late – a truth described by the Apostle Paul: "While people are saying, 'There is peace and security,' then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape" (1 Thessalonians 5:3). War is unleashed upon the earth with the coming of the second horseman: "When he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, 'Come!' And out came another horse, bright red. Its rider was permitted to take peace from the earth, so that people should slay one another, and he was given a great sword" (Revelation 6:3–4).
The second rider specifically takes the false peace from the world that the Antichrist established. No doubt the Antichrist himself will be involved in war and bloodshed, which the red horseman depicts, although other wars will break out apart from the Antichrist.
The adjective "great" that describes the sword given to the rider of the red horse illustrates the exceedingly great carnage that will result from this judgment, while the term used for the sword itself refers to a short, dagger-like sword used by assassins and those involved in close fighting. Jesus described this period of time in His Olivet discourse: "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not alarmed, for this must take place, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places" (Matthew 24:6–7).
The third horseman represents horrible famines that will come upon the earth: "When he opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, 'Come!' And I looked, and behold, a black horse! And its rider had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard what seemed to be a voice in the midst of the four living creatures, saying, 'A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius, and do not harm the oil and wine!'" (Revelation 6:5–6).
A denarius represented a day's wage back in the first century, and a quart of wheat was about the portion for one person's meal. Barley was normally used to feed animals, but was sometimes eaten by the very poor. Oil and wine were typically used for cooking. The scales carried by the black horse's rider represent a measuring system that will give a person barely enough to eat for a full day's labor. This shows food costing 8–10 times its normal price in the first century. Clearly, famine conditions are showcased by the third horseman of the apocalypse.
The fourth horse and rider are the natural culmination of the first three: "When he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, 'Come!' And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider's name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth" (Revelation 6:7–8).
The word "pale" or "ashen" as in some translations in the Greek is chloros from which the word "chlorophyll" is derived. The yellowish-green horse is the color of a corpse. Death is the natural result of war and famine, with Hades, said to follow the rider, representing the grave.
A full one quarter of the earth's population will perish from the four horsemen, which showcases why Jesus says in Matthew 24:21 that the time of tribulation will be something that the world has not seen up to that point. And what's worse, it is only the beginning of God's judgments that will come upon the earth.
However, the wrath of God described in the book of Revelation can be escaped by putting one's trust in Jesus Christ. It is only through His death and resurrection that deliverance can be found. But for those who reject Christ, there is no deliverance, only certain judgment, which is a truth the writer of Hebrews may have had in mind when he wrote, "how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation?" (Hebrews 2:3).
The disciple JOHN may indeed have been told he would that power-----BUT, JESUS'S JOHN is not here today.
'Apostle John - 'The Disciple Jesus Loved'
John was a member of the inner circle of three who accompanied Jesus even when the others were absent. Paul called John one of the pillars of the Jerusalem church:'
Since JOHN is not here----we are not being told by JOHN what the future holds. That would be a GYPSY.
'prior to the second coming of Christ, so in a sense God "unveiled" to John what will occur in the future'.
This is where THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST is in play today------supposedly whoever is identified as this SECOND CHRIST----will have that power of knowing the future. We discussed how FREEMASONRY replaces JESUS with the one person in the world who is EXTREMELY RICH AND POWERFUL.
THIS SECOND COMING AS FREEMASONRY WILL REPLACE JESUS----A REAL PASSIONATE CHAMPION OF GOD'S PEOPLE-----
WITH A RUTHLESS, PATHOLOGICAL MEGLOMANIAC.
We discuss MOVING FORWARD ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE as just this---great destruction and a total remake of 4000 years of our religious and civil history ----WESTERN CIVILIZATION.
So, we are being marched into WW 3-----with goals of FINAL SOLUTION------DEEP, DEEP, REALLY DEEP STATE-----TOTALITARIANISM----which has nothing to do with BIG G GOD-----and our religions.
'that will bring great destruction upon the world. These are described in chapters 6-18 in Revelation and consist of what are called the seal, trumpet, and bowl judgments'.
The SCROLL is perhaps what is called THE HOLY GRAIL------and the SEALS are broken by actions towards GOALS------and the PEOPLE RIDING THE HORSES are those currently having power to create the conditions in this REVELATIONS story.
'John sees God the Father holding a scroll that is sealed with seven seals'.
Without coincidence, the SCROLL represents the TITLE TO ALL OF EARTH-----giving that SECOND-COMING person all that is CHRIST'S inheritance here on EARTH----JUDGEMENT OF MANKIND being one of them.
The scroll itself represents the title deed to the earth and is Christ's inheritance, which belongs to Him alone.
ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE IS OF COURSE THIS CHRIST'S INHERITANCE OF EARTH.
'This inheritance is promised, but not to everyone. The inheritance of eternal life with God is reserved for those who hear the truth, believe in Jesus, and receive the Holy Spirit—in short, Christians. The benefits of inheritance in Christ begin for a person when they accept Jesus as God's Son who gave His life for theirs, then rose to life again after being in the grave for three days. The Holy Spirit is granted to that person as a deposit, a down payment, a promise of the coming eternal life with God in heaven'.
'Israel and by extension, believers are those whom God has claimed as his portion or heritage out of all the peoples of the world. This is the same sense of what we will see later in chapter one, verse 18, “what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints.” Notice that it says “his glorious inheritance.” An inheritance is hereditary succession to an estate or title; the right of an heir to succeed to property on the death of an ancestor; something that may legally be transmitted to an heir'.
When CHRISTIANS are led to believe only BAPTIZED CHRISTIANS will inherit the EARTH------when real JEWISH citizens are led to believe they are GOD'S CHOSEN people who will INHERIT THE EARTH-----when MUSLIM faith teaches MUHAMMAD has decreed them as INHERITORS OF EARTH-------we have CONTINUOUS RELIGIOUS WARS when WARS are NOT RELIGIOUS in any of these WESTERN religious faiths.
Our Inheritance in Christ
– Eph. 1:11-17 (Sonnenberg)2012/05/202012, Dan Sonnenberg, Ephesians, Sermons, The Christian's Inheritance (Ephesians)sepcadmin
What is the Apostle Paul actually talking about when he brings up the topic of inheritance? Pastor Dan walks us through the two meanings of inheritance as used in Ephesians: God’s inheritance and our inheritance.
Ephesians 1:11-14 (ESV)
In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.
Paul is writing to Gentile Christians in Ephesus. This passage was written to assure Gentile believers, that when Christ comes again, they will receive the same spiritual inheritance as those Jews who had already believed in Christ. So let’s look at what Paul says about this inheritance – what it is, how we received it, and why we received it.
1. What it is
Verse 11 tells us literally “we were claimed as his portion” but it is rendered in a variety of ways in our Bible….
(ESV) In him we have obtained an inheritance,
(NAS) In Him also we have obtained an inheritance,
(NKJ) In Him also we have obtained an inheritance,
(NLT) we have received an inheritance from God,
(NIV) In him we were also chosen,
(NET) In Christ we too have been claimed as God’s own possession,
So which is it? Have we been claimed as God’s inheritance, or have we received an inheritance from God? The answer is both. **The word “inheritance” is used in this chapter both of God’s portion in his people (11) and of the everlasting portion which he has reserved for them (18).
God’s portion in his people.
I’d like a portion of that!
A portion is a part of the whole, a section or quantity within a larger thing; a part separated from a whole, a part that is allotted to a person or group, like: A helping of food; The part of an estate received by an heir; A woman’s dowry; A person’s lot or fate
God has reserved for himself a portion of all the peoples of the earth to be his special possession, his treasured possession, his chosen people. F.F. Bruce in his commentary believes the best rendering for verse 11 is “we were claimed as his portion” because it corresponds best with OT passages.
In the Song of Moses (Deut 32.8-9), the various nations of the world are assigned to various angelic beings (called “the sons of God”), but Yahweh retains Israel as his personal possession, When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance, when he divided mankind, he fixed the borders of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God. But the LORD’s portion is his people, Jacob his allotted heritage.
Portion and heritage are synonymous here. A heritage is something that comes to or belongs to a person by reason of birth; an inherited lot or portion; something reserved for someone; something that has been or may be inherited.
Israel and by extension, believers are those whom God has claimed as his portion or heritage out of all the peoples of the world. This is the same sense of what we will see later in chapter one, verse 18, “what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints.” Notice that it says “his glorious inheritance.” An inheritance is hereditary succession to an estate or title; the right of an heir to succeed to property on the death of an ancestor; something that may legally be transmitted to an heir.
So the words “portion,” “heritage,” and “inheritance” are synonymous. Believers are those God has claimed out of all the people of the earth as his portion, his heritage, his inheritance, his heirs. To return to our previous lessons in this chapter: by choosing us before the foundation of the world in Christ, by adopting us into his family in Christ, by redeeming us through the payment of a ransom price through the death of Christ, God has claimed us as his portion, his heritage, his inheritance, and as we will see later, his treasured possession.
That leads us to the other sense of inheritance in this passage.
The everlasting portion God has reserved for his people.
Since God has claimed us as his inheritance, his heritage, his portion, therefore it can be said that we have obtained – passively, the verb is passive here – we have obtained an inheritance, a heritage, a portion, the possession of all the benefits of salvation offered in Christ.
When one believes in GOD----whether JEWISH, MUSLIM, or CHRISTIAN-----why would a believer not believe that the same GOD------touched JESUS-----MOSES-----MUHAMMAD -----allowing for development of different religions ALL steeped in the same GOD'S NATURAL LAWS.
When we think of who is the INHERITOR OF EARTH------GOD created all of MANKIND/WOMANKIND-------we are all 99% of WE THE PEOPLE-------INHERITORS of THE EARTH----each religious sect finding that place on EARTH for sustainability.
Why do our 99% WE THE PEOPLE understand that version of RELIGION? Because each of these religions CHRISTIAN, MUSLIM, JUDAIC have a GLOBAL 1% OLD WORLD KINGS-----all of which think THEY should be the world's ruler.
Our JUDEO/CHRISTIAN BIBLE/TORAH has its creation story where a ADAM and EVE are that beginning of MANKIND/WOMANKIND. So, too does other religions----MUSLIM/HINDI with the ideal of ALL HUMANITY BEING EQUAL and each person being INHERITORS if they follow the religious tenets of GOD'S NATURAL LAWS.
Being POOR does not exclude from EARTH'S INHERITANCE.
What we have today MOVING FORWARD is a bunch of GLOBAL BANKING 5% FREEMASON/GREEK PLAYERS having spent these few decades as RAGING NEO-LIBERALS AND NEO-CONS having contempt for every GOD'S NATURAL LAW that exists----on PUBLIC SURVEILLANCE judging GOD'S people creating their own ideals of RIGHT AND WRONG---and that RIGHT AND WRONG is tied to what being extremely rich and powerful------looks like.
Does the Bible support the idea that all men are created equal?
In speaking to the Athenians, Paul stated that God "has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings" (Acts 17:26).
GOD gives the power to our 99% WE THE PEOPLE to build this just EARTH ------we do have the POWER. This DEEP, DEEP, REALLY DEEP STATE total surveillance society has no context in any of GOD'S NATURAL LAWS or our 99% inheritors of EARTH.
We are all descendants of Adam.
While we are divided between different nations and languages, we are all the same -- human beings created by the hand of God.
In determining whether we will go to heaven or hell after life on this earth, God "will render to each one according to his deeds" (Romans 2:6). Nationality will not matter. God is impartial toward nations. "For there is no partiality with God" (Romans 2:11).
Earthly wealth makes no impact on God's judgment. "If you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one's work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear; knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot" (I Peter 1:17-19). Riches never saved a single man.
Nor will position in the world make a difference. "Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free. And you, masters, do the same things to them, giving up threatening, knowing that your own Master also is in heaven, and there is no partiality with Him" (Ephesians 6:5-9). It really doesn't matter who you are because "God shows personal favoritism to no man" (Galatians 2:6).
We all start out equal, in that we are all born without sin, but we do not all remain equal. "
And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.
But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality" (Colossians 3:23-25).
God does not derive any satisfaction in the destruction of the wicked. He demands the same obedience from everyone.
""Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways," says the Lord GOD. "Repent, and turn from all your transgressions, so that iniquity will not be your ruin. Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies," says the Lord GOD. "Therefore turn and live!"" (Ezekiel 18:30-32).
This same equality of treatment is to be reflected in the church. "My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality. For if there should come into your assembly a man with gold rings, in fine apparel, and there should also come in a poor man in filthy clothes, and you pay attention to the one wearing the fine clothes and say to him, "You sit here in a good place," and say to the poor man, "You stand there," or, "Sit here at my footstool," have you not shown partiality among yourselves, and become judges with evil thoughts?
Listen, my beloved brethren: Has God not chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him? But you have dishonored the poor man.
Do not the rich oppress you and drag you into the courts?
Do they not blaspheme that noble name by which you are called? If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself," you do well; but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors" (James 2:1-9).
Here is another corruption-----these several centuries of WESTERN civilization have adopted a HUMANIST PHILOSOPHY that mirrored CHRISTIAN PHILOSOPHY----ergo, MORALS AND ETHICS tied to GOD'S NATURAL LAWS.
What has MOVED FORWARD during CLINTON/BUSH/OBAMA tied to ONE WORLD ONE GOVERNANCE the richest and most powerful are CHRIST'S INHERITORS OF EARTH-----is a HUMANIST philosophy tied to pre-Christian NERO/CATO/SENECA------ANCIENT ROME/GREECE.
Below we see upon what our Western nations built what we call THE PUBLIC SPACE. It was central to the idea of SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE because we understand that our RELIGIOUS belief of social justice and humanitarian civil structures cannot survive when tied to HYPER-LAISSEZ FAIRE global industrial corporate economies.
'But if it can be shown that the entire government system of education — from elementary schools to the state colleges and universities — are establishments of the humanist religion, the courts would have no choice but to order the closing down of these institutions.
There can be no government establishment of religion in the United States, whether it be in the form of a house of worship or of a school system embracing a religious dogma'.
So, THE NEW RELIGION is HINDI-BRAHMIN------not modern HINDI----but 3000BC when GOD did not exist----we had gods and goddesses with supreme wealth and power.
NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG ARE TIED TO BEING THOSE 5% FREEMASON/GREEK PLAYERS WHO HATE ME BECAUSE I AM OLD-SCHOOL GOD'S NATURAL LAWS AND THEY ARE OLD SCHOOL PRE-CHRISTIAN ROMAN NERO/CATO/SENECA----WERE THE RICH AND POWERFUL INHERIT THE EARTH----NO GOD'S NATURAL LAWS NEEDED.
“Humanists obviously have a vital interest in the passage of a strong bill for federal aid to public education. Without wanting to push the analogy too far, one might say that public education is the parochial education for scientific humanism.”

Is Humanism a Religion?
Written by Sam Blumenfeld
The question we ask is important. For humanism is the world view of our educational leaders, of the textbooks they write, of the psychologists who counsel our youngsters on values, sex, and death. In short, it is the world view of the curricula used in the public schools. In fact, humanism forms the philosophical basis of what passes for teacher education in our state colleges and universities.
Establishments of Religion
Thus, if humanism is indeed a religion, then what we have in our public schools and state colleges and universities are government-supported establishments of religion, which are patently unconstitutional and therefore illegal.
In fact, it should be pointed out that on March 4, 1987, U.S. District Judge W. Brevard Hand, in Smith v. Board of School Commissioners of Mobile County, Ala., ruled that secular humanism is a religion. The 172-page ruling defines religion and concludes, after reviewing the relevant aspects of humanism, that “For purposes of the First Amendment, secular humanism is a religious belief system, entitled to the protections of, and subject to the prohibitions of, the religious clauses.”
Three Key Documents
Judge Hand wrote:
The entire body of thought has three key documents that furnish the text upon which the belief system rests as a platform: Humanist Manifesto I, Humanist Manifesto II, and the Secular Humanist Declaration.
These factors … demonstrate the institutional character of secular humanism. They are evidence that this belief system is similar to groups traditionally afforded protection by the First Amendment religion clauses.
The judge then went on to demonstrate that 44 textbooks being used in the public schools of Alabama were written from the humanist point of view and thereby constituted an illegal establishment of religion. The judge ordered the books removed from the schools.
Judge Hand’s Order Reversed
On August 26, 1987, the 11th Circuit Court reversed Judge Hand’s order banning the 44 textbooks. The higher court did not address the question of whether secular humanism is a religion for First Amendment purposes, but asserted that it was not being promoted in the textbooks that were banned. Judge Frank M. Johnson Jr. wrote:
Use of the challenged textbooks has the primary effect of conveying information that is essentially neutral in its religious content to the school children who utilize the books; none of these books convey a message of government approval of secular humanism.…
There simply is nothing in the record to indicate that omission of certain facts regarding religion from these textbooks of itself constituted an advancement of secular humanism or an active hostility towards theistic religion.
And so the books were put back in the schools.
The Wrong Question
But the question is not whether the textbooks were humanistic or not, but whether the entire government education system is an establishment of the humanist religion. All of the rationales used to remove Bibles and other manifestations of the Judeo-Christian theistic world view from classrooms are based on the First Amendment’s prohibition against government establishments of religion.
But if it can be shown that the entire government system of education — from elementary schools to the state colleges and universities — are establishments of the humanist religion, the courts would have no choice but to order the closing down of these institutions.
There can be no government establishment of religion in the United States, whether it be in the form of a house of worship or of a school system embracing a religious dogma.
From Nonsectarianism to Secularism
When the public schools were first established, the courts ruled that the schools had to be nonsectarian, that is, not favoring any particular Protestant denomination. That they were essentially Protestant in character was generally acknowledged. In fact, the reason why Catholics established their own private parochial school system was because they recognized the Protestant character of the government schools.
After the turn of the 19th century, however, as humanist progressives took control of the government schools, no sectarianism gradually gave way to secularism. Secularists hold that any government institution that promotes or supports belief in the existence of a supernatural being is an establishment of religion.
As more and more judges adopted the secularist point of view, order after order was handed down stripping the public schools of the last vestiges of nonsectarian Christianity. Curricula were revised, new textbooks written, new programs instituted so that today’s public schools not only no longer reflect the nation’s Judeo-Christian heritage but now constitute the most powerful educational machine for the propagation of humanism among the American people.
Filling the Vacuum
The secularists had no intention of creating a neutral, nontheistic vacuum in our schools. Their plan always was to get rid of Judeo-Christian values and replace them with their own. In this way, the government schools have become, beyond a shadow of a doubt, establishments of the humanist religion.
Today, humanist beliefs are inculcated through such programs and concepts as values clarification, sensitivity training, situational ethics, evolution, multiculturalism, globalism, transcendental meditation, sex education, death education, humanistic and behavioral psychology, etc. All of these programs are marbleized throughout the curriculum — in reading, language arts, math, social studies, health education, psychology, art, biology, and other subjects. It is impossible for a student in a government school to avoid or escape the all-pervasive influence of humanist ideas and beliefs which confront and accost him daily every which way he turns.
That the plan of the humanists was to supplant traditional theistic religion with a new secular man-centered religion of their own can be proven by simply quoting the humanists themselves. The best source of these quotes is The Humanist magazine.
The Humanists Organize
The forerunner of The Humanist was The New Humanist which first appeared in 1928 as a monthly bulletin of the Humanist Fellowship, an organization formed by Unitarian students from the University of Chicago and its related theological schools. Its early editors — Harold Buschman, Edwin H. Wilson, and Raymond B. Bragg — were young Unitarian ministers. It was on the initiatives of Bragg that the drafting of A Humanist Manifesto (1933) was begun. Professor Roy Wood Sellars wrote the first draft. The Manifesto appeared in the April 1933 issue of The New Humanist.
The Manifesto was more than just an affirmation of the humanist world view, it was also a declaration of war against orthodox, traditional religion. The Manifesto’s views toward religion can be summed up as follows:
1. The purpose of man’s life is “the complete realization of human personality.” “[T]he quest for the good life is … the central task for man.”
2. The humanist’s religious emotions are expressed in “social passion,” in a “heightened sense of personal life and in a cooperative effort to promote social well-being.”
3. Humanists believe that “all associations and institutions exist for the fulfillment of human life.” Therefore, “the intelligent evaluation, transformation, control, and direction of such associations and institutions … is the purpose and program of humanism.”
In other words, the humanist must take over society’s associations and institutions in order to transform them into instruments of humanist purpose. This includes the institutions of traditional religion.
The Manifesto states: “Certainly religious institutions, their ritualistic forms, ecclesiastical methods, and communal activities must be reconstituted as rapidly as experience allows, in order to function effectively in the modern world.”
A Messianic Mission
In other words, the messianic mission of the humanists is not to build new institutions of their own, but to subvert and appropriate the institutions of others. This is not a new idea among humanists. The Unitarians subverted Harvard and took it from the orthodox followers of its Calvinist founders. Religious liberals have appropriated Yale, Princeton, Dartmouth, and other institutions founded by the orthodox.
The loss of these institutions, incidentally, has forced conservative Christians to create new institutions of their own: Liberty University, Regent University, Bob Jones University, Pensacola Christian College, Patrick Henry College, and others. The rise of these new institutions has dismayed the humanists who believed that once the major institutions of traditional religion were subverted and taken over, the influence of theistic religion would fade forever. The hopeful demise of traditional theistic religion is a theme frequently expressed by humanist writers.
Humanism as Religion
Roy Wood Sellars, who drafted Humanist Manifesto I, wrote in The Humanist (Vol. I, 1941, p. 5), an article “Humanism as a Religion,” in which he stated:
Undeniably there is something imaginative and daring in bringing together in one phrase two such profoundly symbolic words as humanism and religion. An intimate union is foreshadowed in which religion will become humanistic and humanism religious. And I believe that such a synthesis is imperative if humanity is ever to achieve a firm and adequate understanding of itself and its cosmic situation….
Religious humanism rests upon the bedrock of a decision that it is, in the long run, saner and wiser to face facts than to live in a world of fable.
The Worship of Humanity
Oliver L. Reiser, a signer of the Manifesto, writing in the same issue of The Humanist, states:
The one great hope for democracy lies in the development of a non-supernaturalistic religion which, unlike other intellectual movements, will be non-academic in its appeal to all civilized individuals. This new foundation for a coming world-order must be the emergent outcome of the thought-content of a universalized culture….
The god of this coming world-religion, that is, the object of reverence of scientific humanism, is the spirit of humanity in its upward striving.
Another signer of the Manifesto, William Floyd, wrote in The Humanist (Vol. 2, 1942, p. 2):
The religious philosophy of humanism as a substitute for metaphysical theology will enable men to realize the highest value in life without surrendering their minds to any final dogma or any alleged revelation of the supernatural….
To fill the need for a modern conception of religious foundations the Humanist Manifesto was issued in 1933.
Another signer, E. Burdette Backus, wrote in Vol. VI, p. 6 of The Humanist:
[Humanism] is indeed a religion, and the extent to which it is capable of eliciting the emotions of men is limited only by a degree in which those who have made it their own shall succeed in embodying its full riches.
Natural vs. Supernatural Religion
In an article, “Religion Without God," (The Humanist, Vol. VII, 1947, p. 9), Kenneth L. Patton wrote:
A naturalistic religion is just as inclusive of all that is within the world we know as is the supernaturalistic or theistic religion.
Whereas the theist pins his faith and hope in his God, the humanist and naturalist pins his faith in the natural world, and in man as a creature within it, and his faith is no less magnificent, courageous and hopeful than that of the believer in God.
The Fourth Faith
In June 1951 The Humanist published an article by Manifesto signer Edwin H. Wilson, “Humanism: The Fourth Faith.” He wrote:
Today, I am suggesting that there is in the world as a present and potent faith, embraced by vast numbers, yet seldom mentioned — a fourth faith — namely Humanism. This fourth faith — with rare exceptions such as some Universalist or Unitarian churches, a few independent Humanist Fellowships and the Ethical Societies — has no church to embody it…. Theirs is a secular faith.”
According to Wilson, the other three faiths are Protestantism, Catholicism, and Judaism. Since many of the signers of the Manifesto were Unitarians, it is not surprising that Wilson identifies the Unitarian church as belonging to the fourth faith.
In 1952, The Humanist (Sept.-Oct.) published an article by Julian Huxley, “Evolutionary Humanism: The World’s Next Great Religion.” Huxley wrote:
Out of the needs of our time, through the evolutionary process, a new religion is rising. By religion ... I mean an organized system of ideas and emotions which relates man to his destiny, over and above the practical affairs of every day, transcending the present and the existing systems of law and social structure.... I believe we have nothing to lose by using the word ‘religion’ in the broadest sense to include nontheistic formulations and systems as well.
In the next issue of The Humanist, Huxley wrote: “The next phase of history could, and should, be a Humanist phase. Let us help toward its emergence.”
The Glorification of man
In an article, “The Humanist Faith Today” (The Humanist, Vol. 15, No. 4, 1954, p. 180), we read:
Since humanism appears as a genuinely living option for many people, especially among students, teachers, and intellectuals generally, it may be appropriately studied as a religion. Indeed, it is not unfair to call it the fourth main religious option, along with Judaism, Roman Catholicism, and Protestantism, for thoughtful men in the contemporary Western world….
What remains of religion when the Humanist criticism has completed its work? The Humanist replies that devotion to human and social values emerges as the essence of religion. As [Corliss] Lamont has written, the Humanist postulates that "the chief end of thought and action is to further earthly human interests in behalf of the greater happiness and glory of man.”
In 1959, George E. Axtelle, newly elected president of the American Humanist Association, said:
“Ours is no revealed religion. It is a religion, an intellectual and moral outlook shaped by the more sensitive and sympathetic souls of our time…. Ours is a task, not a doctrine…. Our fundamental goal must be to make the Humanist Way of Life a reality in our communities, our state and our nation.”
The New Religion
In the January-February 1962 issue of The Humanist, Sir Julian Huxley wrote an article, “The Coming New Religion of Humanism.” He said:
The beliefs of this religion of evolutionary humanism are not based on revelation in the supernatural sense, but on the revelations that science and learning have given us about man and the universe. A humanist believes with full assurance that man is not alien to nature, but a part of nature, albeit a unique one…. His true destiny is to guide the future course of evolution on earth towards greater fulfilment, so as to realize more and higher potentialities….
A humanist religion will have the task of redefining the categories of good and evil in terms of fulfilment and of desirable or undesirable realizations of potentiality, and setting up new targets for its morality to aim at….
Humanism also differs from all supernaturalist religions in centering its long-term aims not on the next world but on this…. The humanist goal must therefore be … The Fulfilment Society.
Not all humanists agreed with Huxley. Harry Elmer Barnes and Herbert T. Rosenfeld responded with an article of their own in the July-August 1962 issue. They wrote:
In our opinion, Sir Julian has set forth not the Humanist ideology of today, but a truly noble and eloquent Unitarian sermon. It is Unitarian doctrine, pure if not simple….
It was, of course, frequently argued in earlier decades of our century that Humanism is a secular religion, but in the light of the history of thought and culture, the terms ‘religion’ and ‘secular’ are, in our view, mutually exclusive….If there is any one thing which characterizes and justifies Humanism it is complete and undeviating secularism….
If Humanism is identical with the latter [Unitarianism] in its ideology, we see little basis for a separate Humanist movement or organization.
Unitarian minister Edwin H. Wilson, one of the founders of the humanist movement, responded to the Barnes-Rosenfeld article in the Nov.-Dec. 1962 issue. He told of how the magazine was founded by Unitarian theological students. He went on:
The American Humanist Association itself was organized soon thereafter by a group composed primarily of liberal ministers and professors who were predominantly Unitarians and considered themselves as religious humanists. At the time of its incorporation in 1941, the decision was made not to try to establish humanist churches but to function as an educational movement among humanists wherever they were found.
The early literature of the movement was devoted chiefly to the development of Humanism as a distinctly religious position….
Of the 34 persons who signed the Humanist Manifesto in 1933, all but four can be readily identified as ’religious humanists’ who considered Humanism as the development of a better and truer religion and as the next step ahead for those who sought it….
My conviction is that a probe into what is actually believed would show that the ‘liberal Unitarian position’ and what is generally presented as Humanism — whether as a religion or as a philosophy — differ very little….
One minister who belongs to the A.H.A. said: ‘We Unitarians in my church have no ideological conflict with the American Humanist Association. Naturalistic Humanism is our position.’
Barnes and Rosenfeld question whether a secular religion is possible. Not to make any one word too important, one could argue that today’s Unitarian Universalism is a secular religion….
Now for expediency. In the Torcaso case the court recognized Buddhism, Taoism, Ethical Culture and Secular Humanism as religions existing in the United States which do not teach what is traditionally considered belief in God. We should at least ask ourselves whether there are not practical advantages to be had by accepting this decision.
And so, to Wilson, and many other humanists, “secular religion” was not a contradiction in terms. The words defined a nontheistic faith. Comments by readers of the articles appeared in the January-February 1963 issue. Opinion was divided. The hard-core atheists objected to the use of the word “religion,” while the Unitarians agreed with Wilson.
Humanist Manifesto II
In 1973 the humanists produced Humanist Manifesto II, an affirmation of the earlier document with updated views on the world’s social problems. The new Manifesto was as hostile to traditional theistic religion as the earlier one. It said:
As in 1933, humanists still believe that traditional theism, especially faith in the prayer-hearing God, assumed to love and care for persons, to hear and understand their prayers, and to be able to do something about them, is an unproved and outmoded faith. Salvationism, based on mere affirmation, still appears as harmful, diverting people with false hopes of heaven hereafter. Reasonable minds look to other means for survival….
We believe … that traditional dogmatic or authoritarian religions that place revelation, God, ritual, or creed above human needs and experience do a disservice to the human species…. We find insufficient evidence for belief in the existence of the supernatural; it is either meaningless or irrelevant to the question of the survival and fulfillment of the human race. As nontheists, we begin with humans not God, nature not deity….
[We] can discover no divine purpose or providence for the human species. While there is much that we do not know, humans are responsible for what we are or will become. No deity will save us; we must save ourselves.
Ethics and Sexuality
Manifesto II also spelled out the social and political agendas for humanists:
We affirm that moral values derive their source from human experience. Ethics is autonomous and situational, needing no theological or ideological sanction…. We strive for the good life, here and now….
In the area of sexuality, we believe that intolerant attitudes, often cultivated by orthodox religions and puritanical cultures, unduly repress sexual conduct. The right to birth control, abortion, and divorce should be recognized…. Short of harming others or compelling them to do likewise, individuals should be permitted to express their sexual proclivities and pursue their life-styles as they desire.
The humanists again committed themselves to the goal of World Government.
Manifesto II states:
We deplore the division of humankind on nationalistic grounds. We have reached a turning point in human history where the best option is to transcend the limits of national sovereignty and to move toward the building of a world community in which all sectors of the human family can participate. Thus we look to the development of a system of world law and a world order based upon transnational federal government.
Anyone who bothers to study the curriculum of American public education will find in virtually every course and program the tremendous influence of humanist philosophy. It almost seems as if the public schools have become the parochial schools of humanism wherein American youngsters are aggressively indoctrinated in humanist values and ideas.
In fact, humanist editor Joe R. Burnett suggested as much in the Nov.-Dec. 1961 issue of The Humanist (p. 347) when arguing in favor of federal aid to education. He said:
“Humanists obviously have a vital interest in the passage of a strong bill for federal aid to public education. Without wanting to push the analogy too far, one might say that public education is the parochial education for scientific humanism.”
If that was the case in 1961, it is even more so today. In short, public education today is a government-supported establishment of the humanist religion.

The untold truth of Sodom and Gomorrah
Sodom and Gomorrah John Martin/Wikimedia Commons
By Morris M.
Las Vegas may like to style itself as "sin city," but there are only two cities in world history that were so sinful God had to actually explode them with fire. Sodom and Gomorrah and their fiery fate crop up in the Book of Genesis in the Old Testament, in the Torah, and in the Quran. However, you probably know them best from Sodom's historical association with homosexuality and hardline religious warnings circa 2013 that America would suffer the exact same fate the moment the Supreme Court allowed gay marriage, a prophecy that's up there with "Betamax is the future of home entertainment" in the accuracy stakes.
But even without the allure of glorious sodomy, Sodom and Gomorrah have cast a long shadow over the Western imagination. Yet how much does the average dude or dudette on the street actually know about these two long-dead cities and their unlucky inhabitants? Like, did they even exist, or are they just beautiful myths? The truth is even more complicated than you probably think.
Sodom and Gomorrah are like Batman and Robin, or Superman and "disappointing Zack Snyder movies" — you're so used to hearing them together that one without the other sounds weird. Yet this cozy linguistic partnership is as misleading as referring to The Beatles as just "John and Paul." If Sodom and Gomorrah were the main songwriters, their band was something called the Cities of the Plain, a collection of five great cities that sat along the Jordan River in Biblical times. And you better believe this ancient city supergroup had their own George and Ringo (and some other guy).
The three forgotten cities aren't just background details. Although they appear in the story of Lot far less than Sodom or Gomorrah, they have their own names and everything. Deuteronomy 29:22-23 identifies two of the other cities as Admah and Zeboim, while Genesis 19:23 identifies the final city as Zoar, which is presumably the fifth Beatle in our tortured analogy.
"Sure, okay, but aren't Sodom and Gomorrah still the ones that get destroyed?" you may be wondering. Well, that's sort of the issue. The Bible repeatedly makes it clear that Admah and Zeboim went up in the conflagration, thanks to being equally sinful. Zoar's role is even more important. It's the surviving town that Lot flees to as God implements his whole "Kill everyone and let me sort them out" plan. Just like Ringo, these cities deserve some cultural recognition.
NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG who constantly try to KILL the idea I am both a highly educated middle-class academic with ties to being religious -------hate when I am able to appear NORMAL-----it kills that goal of a PORN SNUFF MOVIE of me being that syphilitic whore dying from all that depravity.
What I hear in FEEDBACK from NOSY NEIGHBORS AND THE GANG is this----by standing up and fighting back to win my SAFETY AND WELL-BEING in my living space and advancing a CRIMINAL LAWSUIT against these SEXUAL PREDATORS-----I am trying to make myself a CHRISTIAN MARTYR.
Stories of Christian martyrs are the best stories there are. At youth camp or around a campfire at night, there is nothing more inspiring.
You should learn these stories, put them in your own words, and tell them with passion.
They matter even to God …
It's a beautiful thing to God when a Christian does battle with pain. When he faces threats, punishments, and tortures by mocking death and treading underfoot the horror of the executioner; when he raises up his freedom in Christ as a standard before kings and princes; when he yields to God alone and, triumphant and victorious, he tramples upon the very man who has pronounced sentence upon him. God finds all these things beautiful. (Minucius Felix, The Octavius 37, c. 200)
In the past, when history was primarily preserved by grandfathers and storytellers around the campfire, everyone's favorites were the stories of brave warriors.
Christian martyrs are our mighty warriors.
Christians are not physically violent people. Our kingdom is from heaven (John 18:36), and our warfare is with "principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world, and spiritual wickedness in the heavens" (Eph. 6:12).
This does not mean our weapons are not real. Our weapons are real, and they overthrow the world.
Martyrdom was the Christian's primary method of warfare, and stories of Christian martyrs were met not with mourning, but with triumph.
The oftener we are mown down by you, the more in number we grow. The blood of Christians is seed. (Tertullian, Apology 50, c. A.D. 200)
Christian Martyrs from Early Christianity (Pre-Nicene Era)
- The Death of James the Just, brother of our Lord Jesus Christ
- Pliny the Younger: Epistle to Trajan -- This is a terrific description, between a governor and emperor of Rome, of the treatment of Christians in early Christianity.
- The Martyrdom of Justin Martyr and Companions -- The faithfulness of Justin earned him the name he is known by, Justin Martyr. This is the actual ancient text describing the testimony of Justin and friends before the Roman prefect, Rusticus.
- Perpetua and Felicitas -- Perhaps we Americans are unworthy to read the story of the bravery of these two young ladies and the men who accompanied them to the wild beasts. Secundulus mourned that he died in prison and missed out on being killed by beasts in the amphitheater. It's in sections:
- Perpetua's Arrest and Assignment to the Dungeon
- Perpetua's Trial and Vision
- Perpetua Second Vision Prepares Her For Martyrdom
- Saturus' Vision
- The Martyrs' Before Their Martyrdom
- The Glorious Martyrdom of Perpetua, Felicitas, and the Others
- Felix Manz (Anabaptist) -- Short, but another testimony to the courage and faithfulness of those who went before us, mocking death and preaching to their executioners.
- Hans Brael (Anabaptist) -- This story is longer than the others but it's one of the best ones. Don't skip this for length.
- Michael Sattler (Anabaptist)
- Walter Mills (Protestant)
