There are three main philosophies that I want to get into in this post: Gnosticism, Reincarnation, and Secular Humanism. These three concepts will give you a basic understanding of the philosophies of the mystery schools, but realize that volumes have been written on these subjects, and all I can do is offer you a taste. I also don't want any of you to take anything I say for granted; please do your own research to verify what I write about. I frankly admit that I can and have been wrong and welcome any corrections or insights from others in the comment section. No one has all the answers and we are all learning together, "line upon line, precept upon precept."
A man is saved no faster than he gets knowledge, for if he does not get knowledge, he will be brought into captivity by some evil power in the other world, as evil spirits will have more knowledge, and consequently more power than many men who are on this earth. Hence it needs revelation to assist us, and give us knowledge of the things of God. (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 217)
Evil spirits have more knowledge because they do not have a veil of forgetfulness. They understand that it takes knowledge to be saved, so they twist the truth and deceive the mystery schoolers into believing that they can save themselves, i.e., become gods, through intellect alone. Not simply through secular knowledge, but through mystical knowledge, obtained from initiation into the mysteries and followed by years of higher initiations as they move up the ranks in Satan’s church. But before we get into the specifics we need to go back to Joseph Smith's teachings to learn exactly what Satan is attempting to imitate with this doctrine.
Before 1921, when an apostolic committee removed the Lectures on Faith from the LDS cannon, they were considered the "doctrine" part of the Doctrine and Covenants. I just recently learned through this video by Rob Fotheringham that the committee removed the Lectures because Joseph said that God the Father was a personage of Spirit, in direct opposition to D&C 130. Apparently they knew better than Joseph did, but ironically, the Lectures give step by step directions on how to be saved. And in the sixth lecture, Joseph explains exactly what it means to be saved by knowledge. The testimony of Jesus is not a belief in Christ that we profess at a testimony meeting, it is rather his testimony to us that we lived a life that was in harmony with the will of God. The words of Joseph:
An actual knowledge to any person that the course of life which he pursues is according to the will of God, is essentially necessary to enable him to have that confidence in God, without which no person can have eternal life...that unless they have an actual knowledge that the course that they are pursuing is according to the will of God, they will grow weary in their minds and faint; for such has been and always will be the opposition in the hearts of unbelievers and those that know not God, against the pure and unadulterated religion of heaven... (Lecture Sixth of Faith, Emphasis added)
To be saved by knowledge means that we receive the Second Comforter from Christ and he tells us that we are saved; nothing less. The removal of the Lectures on Faith sent this tenet down the memory hole and reinforced the doctrines of checklists, worthiness certificates, and following leaders; none of which can save you. These are in fact mystery school doctrines and anti-Christ, because they presuppose that one can earn their way into heaven. King Benjamin taught that such a path is impossible; even when we strive to obey all the commandments we fall short and are still indebted to him, and have no reason to boast. The scriptures explain that there will be many who embark on this anti-Christian path and will expect to be saved at the judgment bar, and will be surprised when the Lord declares to them that he never knew them. And it will be because they never understood this vital teaching from Joseph Smith, and I must admit that it is sobering:
Let us observe here, that a religion that does not require the sacrifice of all things, never has power sufficient to produce the faith necessary unto life and salvation; for from the first existence of man, the faith necessary unto the enjoyment of life and salvation never could be obtained without the sacrifice of all earthy things: it was through this sacrifice, and this only, that God has ordained that men should enjoy eternal life; and it is through the medium of sacrifice of all earthly things, that men do actually know that they are doing the things that are well pleasing in the sight of God...
It is vain for persons to fancy to themselves that they are heirs with those, or can be heirs with them, who have offered their all in sacrifice, and by this means obtained faith in God and favor with him so as to obtain eternal life, unless they in like manner offer unto him the same sacrifice, and through that offering obtain the knowledge that they are accepted of him. (Ibid)
The path that Joseph is describing is not easy; Christ does not grant you the knowledge that you are saved until after you've been willing to sacrifice all earthly things, even your own life if necessary. What Joseph is describing is pure Christianity, the religion of heaven. The Satanic substitute, described below, is knowledge without sacrifice, and without Christ.
Gnosticism: Primordial Knowing
Generation and Gnosticism.1 Generation is the Lost Word of Freemasonry, or the phallus of Osiris, the generative force. What follows will be graphic but must be included so that you can understand what a mockery of God this is. If you look at the square it is the shape of a woman spreading her legs and lying on her back in the missionary position. The compass represents the man and the G is the phallus. This symbol is a mockery of the sex act, the procreative force, the creative power given unto us by God. The higher meaning of the G is Gnosis, or primordial knowing, which means original, primary, fundamental, and ancient knowledge, passed down from Lucifer himself. Remember that Giddianhi declared that the secret plans were of ancient date.
In the Gospel narratives the Christos represents the perfect man who, having passed through various stages of the "World Mysteries" symbolized by the thirty-three years, ascends to the heaven sphere where he is reunited with his Eternal Father. The story of Jesus as now preserved is -- like the Masonic story of Hiram Abiff -- part of a secret initiatory ritualism belonging to the early Christian and pagan Mysteries. (p. 498)
They give Jesus a form of godliness, but deny his true power and identity as the one true God. They relegate him to an Eastern sage who learned how to tap into the powers of the universe to heal the sick and work other miracles. This is what Moroni meant when he warned about "things" which persuade men to deny the Christ. He explains how we can know whether something is good or evil, and discern it as plainly as we can tell the daylight from the dark night:
We always have to return to Nephi's statement: "there are save two churches only," it is just Christ and Satan out there; nothing else. Those who "subject themselves" to the devil are the mystery school initiates and their dupes, and they will always teach that Christ was ordinary, non-divine, or non-existent. This has percolated down into every religion and every philosophy. When Nephi says that the humble followers of Christ are few, he means it. Indeed, almost everything we have been taught our entire lives is a lie or a half-truth. The "father of lies" has surrounded us with lies. Notice how the imagery in the scriptures often involves waking up from a dream? God is trying to wake you up. As Lehi once said:
O that ye would awake; awake from a deep sleep, yea, even from the sleep of hell, and shake off the awful chains by which ye are bound, which are the chains which bind the children of men, that they are carried away captive down to the eternal gulf of misery and woe. (2 Nephi 1:13)
One of the major lies that contains kernels of mystery school doctrines is Pantheism: the belief that God is an essence devoid of form that exists throughout all matter in the universe. We are also all part of this "essence" and can tap into the power of it to "manifest" whatever we want in this life. Notice how this idea diminishes Christ? You don't need a Savior, you can just tap into that power yourself through mindfulness and meditation. You can learn over eons of time to become "mindful, present, and detached," until you reach enlightenment, and ultimately, apotheosis; until you "earn" or “think” your way into becoming God. What I have just stated is the basis for all Eastern religions, who teach that through karma, and multiple reincarnations, a soul can achieve enlightenment. I am not diminishing Buddhists and Hindus, there are lots of good people in those religions, but we need to understand where it all came from. And remember, all Christian churches have also been infiltrated by Mystery Babylon, so we can't say we are any better off than those in the East.
Reincarnation: An Excuse to Kill You
Arjuna: This is great sin! We are prepared to kill our own relations out of greed for the pleasures of a kingdom...
Krishna: Arise with a brave heart and destroy the enemy...
Arjuna: Surely it would be better to spend my life begging than to kill these great and worthy souls! If I killed them, every pleasure I found would be tainted. I don't even know which would be better, for us to conquer them or for them to conquer us... I am utterly confused. Tell me which is the better path for me. Let me be your disciple...
Krishna: You speak sincerely, but your sorrow has no cause. The wise grieve neither for the living nor for the dead... The body is mortal, but that which dwells in the body is immortal and immeasurable. Therefore, Arjuna, fight in this battle.
One believes he is the slayer, another believes he is slain. Both are ignorant; there is neither slayer nor slain. You were never born; you will never die. You have never changed; you can never change. Unborn, eternal, immutable, immemorial, you do not die when the body dies. Realizing that which is indestructible, eternal, unborn, and unchanging, how can you slay or cause another to slay?
As one abandons worn-out clothes and acquires new ones, so when the body is worn out a new one is acquired by the Self, who lives within.
The Self cannot be pierced by weapons or burned by fire; water cannot wet it, nor can the wind dry it. The Self cannot be pierced or burned, made wet or dry. It is everlasting and infinite, standing on the motionless foundations of eternity. The Self is manifested, beyond all thought, beyond all change. Knowing this, you should not grieve.
O mighty Arjuna, even if you believe the Self to be subject to birth and death, you should not grieve. Death is inevitable for the living; birth is inevitable for the dead. Since these are unavoidable, you should not sorrow. Every creature is manifested at first and then attains manifestation. When its end has come, it once again becomes unmanifested. What is there to lament to this?
Considering your dharma, you should not vacillate. For a warrior, nothing is higher than a war against evil. The warrior confronted with such a war should be pleased, Arjuna, for it comes as an open gate to heaven. But if you do not participate in this battle against evil, you will incur sin, violating your dharma and your honor.
The story of your dishonor will be repeated endlessly; and for a man of honor, dishonor is worse than death. These brave warriors will think you have withdrawn from battle out of fear, and those who formerly esteemed you will treat you with disrespect. Your enemies will ridicule your strength and say things that should not be said. What could be more painful than this?
Death means the attainment of heaven; victory means the enjoyment of the earth. Therefore rise up, Arjuna, resolved to fight! Having made yourself alike in pain and pleasure, profit and loss, victory and defeat, engage in his great battle and you will be freed from sin. (Easwaran, p. 80, 88-91, Emphases added)
Can you see what Krishna did here? He spun Arjuna's guilt around on him. Guilt for killing his kindred and friends became guilt for not following through with his dharma; that of being a warrior. The sin to kill was morphed into the sin to not kill. Consider the justifications: death is inevitable, the soul cannot die, therefore, there is no such thing as murder! The wise do not grieve for the living or the dead! Kill these people and you will be freed from sin! Unfortunately, this is exactly how the elites view murder: no remorse; no recourse.
D. Christian Markham, in his book Two Churches Only, succinctly sums up how Mystery Babylon uses the doctrine of Reincarnation as another tool to control humanity:
In direct conflict [to Christ's Gospel] is this: within the hidden, guarded doctrinal core of each and every mystery school, is the belief that a benevolent unseen Spiritual Hierarchy, sometimes referred to as the "Masters of the Ancient Wisdom" (i.e., Lucifer and his underlings) are guiding the entire human race to perfection -- to godhood -- through intellect and self-perfection, via the accumulations of as many incarnations of mortality as needed for each soul to get there. Inception to such schools theoretically puts the initiate on the fast track. (p. 149)
Markham goes on to quote sections of yet another book by Manly P. Hall, Reincarnation: The Cycle of Necessity. If there is a subject that pertains to Mystery Babylon, Hall wrote about it. Here are some interesting reasons why reincarnation fits nicely into the mystery narrative:
... the doctrine of reincarnation is the most reasonable solution to the mystery of life... To me the laws of reincarnation and karma are the only solutions to the eternal problem of human unfitness... Reincarnation is the law of evolution applied to the unfolding consciousness of the individual.(Two Churches Only, p. 150)
And Hall quotes this little tidbit from H.P Blavatsky, a giant in the mystery school movement:
It is only the knowledge of the constant rebirths of one and the same individuality throughout the life cycle... that can explain to us the mysterious problem of Good and Evil, and reconcile to man to the terrible and apparent injustice of life. (Ibid)
Christ has solved the problem of human unfitness, the mysterious problem of good and evil, and the apparent injustice of life, through his infinite atonement. All other paths to justice or recompense, such as karma, are anti-Christ. Consider the teachings of Alma. Christ's atonement is infinite and eternal, meaning that no other lifetimes of probation are necessary. Jesus has you covered if you repent:
For it is expedient that an atonement should be made... or else all mankind must unavoidably perish... For it is expedient that there should be a great and last sacrifice; yea, not a sacrifice of man..., for it shall not be a human sacrifice; but it must be an infinite and eternal sacrifice... Now there is not any man that can sacrifice his own blood which will atone for the sins of another...
And thus mercy can satisfy the demands of justice, and encircles them in the arms of safety, while he that exercises no faith unto repentance is exposed to the whole law of the demands of justice; therefore only unto him that has faith unto repentance is brought about the great and eternal plan of redemption. (Alma 34:9-16)
Three times Alma says that the sacrifice cannot be a human sacrifice, but has to be an infinite one. Only God can accomplish this, we cannot pay for our own sins and be saved, we cannot save ourselves through intellect, or karma, or reincarnation, or any of it. There is only one tool with which we can work out our own salvation, and that is the infinite atonement of Jesus Christ. Only he is mighty to save. Every other teaching about the path to heaven, or enlightenment, is a lie, usually mixed with some element of truth. This is not to discount the good people who subscribe to Eastern religions, or all religions for that matter, but "a bitter fountain cannot bring forth good water." The fountain at which these people drink, i.e., the religious organizations and philosophies, are bitter. They have been contaminated by the mystery schools, but Jesus is trying to call them out. He knows his elect and they hear his voice. We all have to be called out of Babylon, Mystery Babylon, the whore who sits on the many waters (multitudes of people), who controls and created all religions, except the one revealed to Adam in the beginning; the religion of heaven.
Before we move on to the next subject, I found an interesting quote by C.S. Lewis. He also believes in the two churches concept taught by Nephi:
There were really only two answers possible: either in Hinduism or in Christianity. Everything else was either a preparation for, or else (in the French sense) a vulgarization of, these. Whatever you could find elsewhere you could find better in one of these. But Hinduism seemed to have two disqualifications. For one thing, it appeared to be not so much a moralized and philosophical maturity of Paganism as a mere oil-and-water coexistence of philosophy side by side with Paganism unpurged; the Brahmin meditating in the forest, and, in the village a few miles away, temple prostitution, sati, cruelty, monstrosity. And secondly, there was no such historical claim as in Christianity. (Source)
Secular Humanism: The Exoteric Anti-Christ
Darwin pointed out that no supernatural designer was needed; since natural selection could account for any known form of life, there was no room for a supernatural agency in its evolution. (Source)
If there is no such thing as the supernatural, that only leaves us with the natural. And we know that the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the Fall of Adam. What separates man from the animals? Cognition. We know better than the animals do. We are born with the Spirit of Christ and with animalistic instincts, but unlike the animals, we can control them. The natural man is God's enemy because he lives in a natural world, a fallen world that exists outside of God's presence. A world devoid of mercy, justice, and equity. We can choose to rise above it, or live like the animals as Korihor proscribed. Ironically, the humanist agenda to deal with the problems of mortality is to centralize power into the hands of a smaller group of imperfect, unjust, and merciless men:
There is an urgent need to develop new political, economic, cultural, and social institutions that will make possible the peaceful co-existence and co-operation of the various regions of the globe. Before this can be fully achieved, however, it is essential that we reach genuine world-world ethical consensus that recognises [sic] our responsibilities and duties to the world community. (International Humanist and Ethical Union, Declaration of Interdependence: A New Global Ethics, 1988)
You can't overcome the natural man by giving ultimate governmental power to a small group of natural men. According to King Benjamin it can only be done through the atonement of Jesus Christ, on an individual basis.
Do you see what the mystery schools are doing with humanism and religion? They control both of these seemingly opposite philosophies in the tradition of the classic Hegelian Dialectic. They create order out of disorder and conflict (thesis + antitheses = synthesis). Or in other words, ordo ab chao, order out of chaos, the New World Order's modus operandi. The humanists and the religionists are merely the poor duped sheep of the mystery schools. Both humanism and organized religion are in favor of a one-world government; the globalists win no matter what.
This brings us to the wild card of the Anti-Christs: the order of the Nehors.
Nehor = False Religious Leader
For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteous of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and to fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to unlceanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. (Romans 1:18-25, Emphases added)
At first glance you wouldn't realize that Paul was talking about priestcraft and humanism, but if you reread carefully it becomes painfully obvious. For it to be possible to hold the truth in unrighteousness, a person has to have had access to the truth. Paul says that these people once knew God, but were ungrateful, and began to learn on their own vain understanding. The priestcrafters then begin to imagine themselves as being wise, and they transform themselves into a replacement for God: they change the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man. When the scriptures use the word "image," they are referencing idolatry. These leaders establish themselves as human gods on earth, presumptuously blocking your access to the real God; they shut up the kingdom of heaven against men. Once they have removed God totally out of the picture, they perpetuate a new lie that Nephi warned about:
And they deny the power of God, the Holy One of Israel; and they say unto the people: Hearken unto us, and hear ye our precept; for behold there is no God today, for the Lord and the Redeemer hath done his work, and he hath given his power unto men. (2 Nephi 28: 5, Emphasis added)
This is where we are at with the LDS ChurchTM today. They claim that God has given his power unto them and that there is no path to God except through them. They are the modern day order of the Nehors; along with many other religious leaders in other sects who do likewise. These priestcrafters have been infiltrated by the mystery schools, with the intent of purposely leading the good people of the earth astray. They are far more dangerous than the reactionary ideologues that sincerely believe in atheism, communism, secular humanism, or any other ism. The Nehors are not ideologues at all, they are opportunists, with the objects of power and gain in mind. They will use ideas, religion, and appeals to God to obtain these ends.
Indeed, as Paul stated, they have become masters at changing the truth of God into a lie. It is my opinion that the order of the Nehors are the primary candidates from which Mystery Babylon likes to draw its adepts from. These people are already compromised in their principles and live by the "ends justify the means" mentality. They hide behind a false veneer of representing God, which they use to manipulate, control, and take money from innocent people; these are the worst types of men. I did not think it is coincidence that Nehor and his ilk were introduced in the Book of Mormon before secret combinations. They are the preparatory conspirators.
I think this will conclude the Mystery Babylon series, at least for now. There are some other more pressing issues I want to tackle. My next post will address the false health paradigm that we all live under, and will reveal the history that was covered up to push the current narrative. Stay tuned.
