Satan, Hiding In Plain Sight - The Seduction of 20th Century America




The great tragedy of the 20th century was that despite it being the bloodiest century in human history, Satan pulled the most amazing trick! Surrounded by the witness of his carnage, he sacrificed the easy roll of "victor"  and chose instead to disappear into plain sight, hoping to convince the world that he was a "mere myth." People today talk easily of the presence of evil in the world. At least for the last decade witnessing the pure evil of Islamic Jihad the word evil has had a context. One could say, becoming convinced of the irrationality of mayhem, the possibility of mass carnage, and the witness of both wrought upon our shores .  the idea of cunning evil was easier to access for the average American the day after nine eleven than it was the day before nine eleven.  Mid-twentieth century the mention of the cunning presence of evil in the world would have been met with pure scoffing. Sadly 9/11/2001 caused in one respect, a "window of sanity," that is quickly closing in America.  It also caused mass delusion where people were convinced that any means to battle evil was justified, that it was the result only that mattered and not the means of battle.  This is the delusion of pragmatism, and is certainly not Christian.  The pragmatist is capable of any evil.  What was the result? The renewed drumbeat of atheism and the rationalism of radical materialism took hold and once again it is impossible to speak of the reality of evil without ones sanity and or intelligence being questioned.  Our military became a sanctuary for Satanists and Luciferians, the homosexual LGBT insanity gain ascendency, and the evil we thought we faced, radical Islam has festered. and increased, exponentially.  Pragmatism destroyed Liberty in our country. Pragmatism destroyed privacy in our country.  Pragmatism, called national security, destroyed our "Republic" and created an Omni-Surveillance Totalitarian Police State.  So we see, that even though many came to realize that evil was not a myth, it is obvious from the result that people were clueless what it "really" was, and how to battle it. 

What would our world be like if we ceased to worry about "right" and "wrong," or "good" and "evil," and simply acted so as to maximize well-being, our own and that of others? Would we lose anything important? - Famed Atheist, Sam Harris. - Harris probably thinks this line has some originality. If so he never listened to John Lennon's song, "Imagine." Both reflect the spiritual dumbing down of Europe and America. It is the Satanic lie that what is wrong with the world is the battle for what is good. If we could just give up that concept and go for what seems pragmatic and expedient for our immediate security and "well being" all would be paradise.

Imagine there's no heaven

It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries

It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions

I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one
- John Lennon 1970.

Let me make a suggestion as to what both Sam Harris' words, and John Lennon's words represent.  Lennon was correct to name his song "Imagine."  Why? It is certainly no projection of man's future and represents nothing real.  But it does represent what we may call the Realm of the Imaginary, which some psychological speculators have opined is a longing for our infant, pre-verbal state. Raymond Lloyd Richmond, in his book "Disasters and Trauma" gives as good a definition as I've seen saying, "As children, we need  and desire  others to take care of our needs  but  being without language  we conceive of this care-taking  imaginally,  that is  as images in our minds.  Hence the realm of the imaginary is all in our heads, so to speak, it is all based in the expectation that our need 'should be' fulfilled without our having to say anything  and it provokes anger when our needs aren't fulfilled as we expect." Picture the infant screeching away, because it's bottom is wet.  That is the basis of Sam Harris' anger.  He has made a career out of complaining about the simple fact  that all goals worth having  must be fought for.  He is offended in his deepest self that this world is not paradise, and that everything he desires is not just handed to him.  Some others, for instance 'anthropologists' have couched this feeling, this longing for utopia,   longing for paradise  as a genetic memory of our pre-civilized days, humanity's primordial days, when man was innocent. In both cases this is pure mythology, but both pictures serve to show this emotion to be not only in the realm of the imagination only, but fanciful and unconnected to reality. You see, in reality we have no choice, we have to struggle against everything that is death engendering - why?  For life.  You see, imagine no possessions, as John Lennon suggested, what does that mean?  It means certain death.  Basic human demands cannot be met as Sam Harris opines,  because what is right and wrong, what is good and

Without the knowledge of our Creator, what is truly "for our well being" is impossible to define - a true statement impossible to refute.

William Peter Blatty, talked about his reasons for writing the novel "The Exorcist" in 1970. He said that he did so because evil had achieved the status of quaint mythology. Evil had become something most people, including Church people, had ascribed to mere human failings and the psychological need to explain human failings. One thing that the New Testament and the early Church Fathers made clear was the literal battle with wicked spiritual forces present upon the earth. Where the Psalmist described evil as the enemy, the New Testament exposed more clearly the malignant forces seeking to destroy humanity. Jesus is witnessed conquering demonic forces that challenged him and caused suffering in those whom he would free. Jesus described Satan as a malevolent power, roaming about as a ravenous lion seeking whom he may destroy. Saint Paul gave us the imagery of the spiritual battle in which every Christian and truly every good person on earth must be engaged, saying, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Surely if any century in all of time proved this reality of St Paul's words, it was the 20th century where the actions of the evil rulers of the Turks . and then Stalin, . Hitler, . Mao, . Poll Pot . and others caused the slaughter of at least 130 million people. This slaughter has not slowed. If we count the abortions produced by the genocidal monsters of UNESCO, the International Monetary Fund, The World Bank, the Ford Foundation, The Carnegie Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundations and all the other Non-governmental organizations they control, that number of abortions was more than one point six billion abortions just since nineteen ninety.


Despite this clear witness of evil, at the time Peter Blatty wrote his book there was but one practicing Roman Catholic exorcist in America. In the latter part of the 20th century when someone in the psychological establishment chose to open the discussion about the reality of evil, he couched his argument in "People Of The Lie" by subtitling it, "The Hope for Healing Human Evil." Now admittedly there is no shortage of human evil, but human evil does not explain the massive intelligence of The Evil One and his hypnotic powers. Nor does the idea of "merely human evil" comport with the Christian world view or the spiritual knowledge of those actively engaged in the battle. In the 20th century we all became too Enlightened (including most Protestant Christians and the American Catholic Bishops) to accept the actual presence of the fallen angelic hosts and their demonic minions. Satan succeeded in hiding in plain sight; through our pride we became too Civilized to admit the existence of the Evil One. The irony of this disconnect between American society and the suffering of so much of the rest of the world was never lost on me, even at a very young age. I was raised on the stories of Corrie Ten Boom and had no doubt of the massive destructive power of Satan left unchecked by societies that had ceased to be moral and faith-filled.







A Victim of Satlin's Holodomor - one of tens of millions.

In the 20th Century, those same evil angelic powers that could inspire the slaughter of millions in Turkey, Asia Minor, Europe, Ukraine, Russia, China . . . could not manage mass murder in the U.S., so blessed with God's Grace and Mercy we were.  So The Evil One took a different tactic here, using our Enlightened-Academic pride, he made us complacent and arrogant in our security while he whittled away at every foundation of our Great Civilization.


Joseph Campbell - The supposed "non-theologian" religion philosopher who did more to popularize the notion of Satan as mere myth than any other person in America in the 20th Century. His series of books "Joseph Campbell's Power of Myth" and the subsequent PBS series with Bill Moyer, were all part of the spiritual dumbing down of America.
  The foundation is crumbling folks and if we want to avoid the mass slaughters that have accompanied the down fall of so many systems, we had better learn to name evil, as evil. The spiritual blindness of Marxist Progressive-ism has systematically darken the "lights" of our institutions for the last eighty years - (all of them) - and this IS evil.  The New Conservative Movement, which is the Marxist Left and the Fascist Corporate structure, joining forces to create the New World Order.  This is evil and we need to understand that. There are great religious movements that are part of this attack on spiritual reality. The Marxist origins and kinship of the so called Gospel of "Social Justice" has been well documented. But the attack is far more sophisticated. This dumb-downed spirituality has also come to us in the writings of countless New Age writers and countless Christian writers contaminated with gnostic/new age heresy. These attacks are not a "semblance or symbol of evil" but expressions of the deceiver Himself, stooping to teach theology to those he fears will slip from his grasp. It is a radical fact, but a fact none the less that one of the most prolific "religion writers, inspirational writers and teachers, and theology writers" is none other than the spirit of the Evil One Himself.  What comes to us in "little tingly packages" of inspiration and enlightenment is often times the carefully packaged temptation to the Big Lie,  which is the primordial force seeking the humiliation and destruction of humankind. We can no longer allow him to hide in plain sight, but must name him where he is found.

Someone close to me said to me years ago, "You know, Satan's no big deal. When he arrives to tempt you all you have to do is say, 'Get away from me Satan' and he has to obey you."  I was flabbergasted as this ignorance was very familiar to me. Yes it is true, that the dismissal of Satan from the scene is "easy" as Martin Luther said, "One little word shall fell him." Yet, Satan and his hoards do not battle according to genteel rules of engagement.  Satan never arrives in open and clear view, until you are conquered and ready for the slaughter.  He never arrives and says, "Oh good fellow.  I am Satan here to temp you. I'm hoping to increase your spiritual blindness, so would you please accept this additional lie?" This elementary school idea of the Cunning Deceiver is foolishness upon foolishness.  No better anatomizing of the deep psychological and hypnotic methods of the Deceiver exists than in the books called "The Philokalia" (The Love Of The Good), which is the record of Christian Spiritual Warriors, seeking God, and battling the demonic evil that resists our quest for the good. . Satan is no pushover, he is a cunning psychological genius whose talents are custom fitted for whatever weakness a person possesses. Besides all the ways one would expect Satan to attack, in recent times it has been via the lust for sudden spiritual wisdom and insight and his demons have been working overtime filling books and Christian airwaves with some of the most destructive and hellish theology I've witnessed in my life time. So when we list the institutions where Satan has had his way, we have to include at least some Christian broadcasting, book publishing and theology schools.
The late famed atheist, Christopher Hitchens, who expressed many times that the most evil force on the planet were people like yours truly - Christians.

If you took the following statement of Dr. Newt Gingrich and substituted the term, "the left" with "those in league with Satan" would the statement be less true?

“Those in league with Satan have thoroughly infiltrated nearly every cultural commanding height of our civilization. That is, they hold power, influence and control of academia, the elite news media, Hollywood, union leaders, trial lawyers, the courts, the Congress, and the bureaucracy at all levels of government. They are radically redefining our very culture by deciding what is news, what is entertainment, what our children learn in school, and what kind of government we should have.”




Watching the sickening end to the Grammy Award Show, where was depicted a demoniac intimidating a Catholic priest (and I describe the skit most mildly) - I was reminded once again of the reality of the battle. It isn't civilized; it is primordial. It is the clash between everything that is strong and has force for the good, what is kind, gentle, loving, good, life engendering, soul healing and strengthening, against everything that is violent and destructive, harsh, crude, hateful, bad, death producing, soul destroying, evil and weakening. But it is more complex than that, since sometimes the latter comes in the disguise of the former. Sadly, Conservative Political Christianity has become a tool of evil, empowering genocide around the world.  Who would have thought this could ever be the case.  But it was the Neo-Conservatives we looked to as saviors, along with the Leftist and Marxists  . we viewed as enemy .  that have destroyed our Republic, and slaughter now millions for no reason, just since the fall of Soviet Communism.

The pillars of our civilization (not just our nation - our civilization) are teetering . while our little "personal religions" (plural) .  our little pridefully held theological constructs have failed us. All the while we have been practicing "faiths" that require little of us, except the wish to succeed in life, gain personal wealth and heap goods upon ourselves, like termites gnawing in the basement, evil has been destroying the foundations of our security.  And everything, and I mean everything we have through politics reached to .  for security, has produced violence and evil.  It is time to grasp our Christian Heritage, our TRUE Christian Tradition with ALL its wisdom and power against the forces of evil.



The battle that most perceive . to be .  the entire war . is but one battle "in the war" .  this WAR requires Christian Soldiers not gnostic egoists. People not just of "faith" but people of discipline, baptized in love. No where will you find in scripture that "faith" covers a multitude of sins. In fact some of great faith who have done great miracles will be discovered to be strangers to the True knowledge of our Lord, to the true spirit of our Lord, which is love.  "Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."




It is not love for some nostalgic image of America, some penchant to spout lines from the Constitution, that makes me battle for the recovery and health of my country, nor is it some nostalgic longing for the good ole days. It is my love for my people, for my friends, relatives, children, my community, my city, my state that makes me battle what is clearly evil and name it so.  It is the realization that we are suffering, what I have to call . a soft holocaust . . literally soft genocide . massive drug induced insanity.  This will keep me battling for life to my very last breath, for the sake of my grand children, and yours, too. . .  When events have been drawn with such clarity as they have been these last thirteen years, and fifty percent of the people approve of the death throws and the satanic force causing the struggle, we are very far gone. And do not think that I am speaking of the Socialist Democrats. Well, yes.  I am speaking of them, but I am also speaking of the Fascist Republicans as well.  You see "that" ,  is the trick.  Each side in this masterful Hegelian Dialectic called "two party governance" fights only half the evil, while they support the other half, and this is true whether you always vote republican or you always vote democrat. That is the great trick of evil.  No political philosophy, and  No pridefully held, personally invented theology/spirituality is going to stand against this!  It is time to get real.
