Mystery Babylon Part IV: Philosophy

 Previously: Mystery Babylon Part III



Welcome readers to Part IV of my Mystery Babylon series. In this segment we will be covering the philosophy of the mystery schools. This will help you understand what makes these people tick and why they have no qualms about enslaving and murdering millions of people. Many of them sincerely believe that what they are doing is right and serving the god of this world: Lucifer, the benevolent Light Bearer. To make a good socialist omelet certain eggs have to be cracked, and they believe they are entitled to do the cracking. The rest of us are fodder in their hands, to be molded and shaped into whatever societal form they see fit.

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."

We have to start at the beginning. The mystery schools believe that Adam and Eve were kept as prisoners in the Garden of Eden by a cruel and vindictive God, and that they were set free by Lucifer, through his agent Satan (yes, some believe these are two different entities), by offering them the fruit of the tree of knowledge, or the gift of intellect. They believe that it is ultimately through knowledge that man can become God, without the need for a Savior. And those who gain more knowledge than others, through mystery school initiations, deserve to rule over others who have no knowledge. This hierarchical structure does represent some truth about the spiritual realm; remember God creates and Satan imitates. Everything taught by the devil is infused with some modicum of truth; that is how he can deceive even the very elect. Consider the words of Joseph Smith:
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

Gnosis is a Greek word meaning knowledge, and implies esoteric knowledge of the spiritual realm, otherwise known as mysticism. This is the type of knowledge that mystery school adepts are seeking for, and it is what they believe sets them apart from the profane. Below is an image of the Masonic compass and square, notice the G in the middle; it has a dualistic meaning. G stands for both 

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

1. Some surmise that the G also stands for Geometry, as the square is a 90 degree angle and the compass a 60 degree angle. Not to mention the myriad geometric shapes that Masonic fraternities subscribe to. However, this meaning is very superficial; Generation and Gnosticism are the deeper meanings that adepts receive when they complete higher levels of initiation. 

According to mystery school lore, Satan came in the form of a serpent to Adam and Even in the Garden of Eden when he set them free through the gift of intellect. Remember he told them if they partook of the fruit that they "shall not surely die" but "shall be as the gods, knowing good and evil." Lucifer promises the mystery school adepts that they can become gods through gnosis, which they can earn through advancement and ascensions up the ranks in his church, which is hierarchical. He also has a priesthood, called the Brotherhood of the Snake, consisting of those who guard the "secrets of the ages," and their logo is the all-seeing eye on the great seal on the back of the dollar bill. This brotherhood is symbolized through the snake and the dragon, which represent wisdom. 

The Gnostics were a religious group that trace their roots back to the Greek mysteries, and were, of course, just another branch of Mystery Babylon. As part of the initiation process the aspirant would be subject to extreme sexual temptation. The wives of the hierophants (the priests) would try to seduce the adepts as part of the initiation, and if they succumbed, they could advance no further. If they resisted, they were rewarded by being allowed to advance to the next phase of initiation. Satan's church does have a sense of morality, albeit extremely twisted. Hence the dual meaning of the G in the symbol above, the animalistic self being overcome by the intellect; mind over matter. 

Throughout this Mystery Babylon series I have explained how the sun was a representation of God to those who engaged in sun-worship. This, of course, was the exoteric shell the mystery schools taught to the profane. But to the adepts, the sun was not a representation of God, but of Lucifer, who really represented the intellect, or wisdom. Thus, the sun was a symbol of illumination. Consider a few colloquialisms that we use today that stem from this belief: when we finally grasp a subject or realize something that is right in front of us, we say, it dawned on me, a reference to the sun. Or when someone is highly intelligent, we call them brilliant, which is a reference to extremely bright light. Everything can be traced back to the age-old battle of light verses darkness. In Satan's church the light is obtained through gnosis, in the Lord's church it is obtained through Christ and his atonement. 

To the Gnostics, the serpent was a symbol of wisdom; they believed that man could only achieve true spiritual power by overcoming certain facets of the mind. In ancient Greece, their beliefs were symbolized in a mystical creature called the Abraxas, a solar-deity representing the sun. The Greek word Abraxas grammatically conveys the number 365, or the yearly cycle of the sun. Consider the image below:

According to Bill Cooper, in this expose on Gnosticism, this is how to interpret this strange beast:

The head represents supreme intelligence, which is the source of all power. It has the head of a cock, who crows at dawn, another representation of the sun. The body is the body of a man, and the bird stood for intelligence and the hailing of light. The tunic worn on the body of the man represents the need for the struggle for revolution (of the socialistic type). The arms represent protection and power given by the dedication to the gnosis. The shield represents wisdom, the club (stick in this image) power, and the two snakes insight and logos, also denoting understanding and primordial knowing. The two serpents show up in other symbols that we are familiar with. Here is one that should ring a bell:

This is, of course, the symbol of the AMA, the American Medical Association. You can see the orb of the sun at the top, with the wings of the eagle spread out (the sun rays of illumination), and the snakes intertwined and facing each other, representing knowledge and wisdom. We have all been deceived into believing that this a symbol of healing that stemmed from the staff of Moses when he healed those who had been bitten by poisonous serpents. Not so, this is the Satanic substitute, and should make us question the validity of the entire medical establishment. In fact, this is a symbol of sorcery and witchcraft. In the Book of revelations John reveals that Mystery Babylon will deceive the nations through its sorceries. This word shows up in the Bible about six times and is associated with witchcraft. It is a translation of the Greek word pharmakeia, which means the use of medicines or drugs for spells, magic, sorcery, and witchcraft. This is where our modern word pharmacy comes from. I am not saying that all medications are evil, but we should question them when they are specifically designed not to remove the cause of disease, but to mask the symptoms... magically (especially psychotropic drugs). The medical establishment has deceived us by encouraging us to put our trust in it, a false god, by ignoring those things God created to heal us: the herbs that are in nature all around us. 

I did not mean to go off on this tangent, but it is an important illustration of a symbol that incorporates the serpents; this stuff is literally everywhere.

The Gnostics influenced all religions. Writings found in the Nag Hammadi library in Egypt contain the Gnostic Gospels, the most influential being the Gospel of Thomas. To the Gnostics, Christ was just another great teacher, like Buddha, Mohammed, or Krishna. There was nothing divine about him, but through meditation and initiation into the mysteries he achieved enlightenment and become a master. Yes, that is correct, they claim that Jesus was an initiate of the mystery schools. Manly P. Hall surmises in The Secret Teachings of All Ages, that Jesus was initiated in either the Greek or Asiatic Mysteries by the Essenes (another group similar to the Gnostics). His also asserts that "Joseph and Mary are believed to have been members of the Essene Order," and that Joseph was old enough to be Mary's grandfather (p.500). Hall goes on to explain what Christos represents, the Greek word for anointed:
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:

For behold, the Spirit of Christ is given to every man, that he may know good from evil; wherefore, I show unto you the way to judge; for every thing which inviteth to do good, and to persuade to believe in Christ, is sent forth by the power and gift of Christ; wherefore ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of God. 

But whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do evil, and believe not in Christ, and deny him, and serve not God, then ye may know with a perfect knowledge it is of the devil; for after this manner doth the devil work, for he persuadeth no man to do good, no, not one; neither do his angels; neither do they who subject themselves unto him. (Moroni 7:16-17)

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

To the Gnostics, Essenes, and other Eastern philosophies, there are two kinds of men: those who are bound to the earth and to matter (materialism), and those who can refine themselves and "detach" from the baser instincts. Mystery school initiates come from the latter class, and this is why they believe they are better than you, and have the right to kill you. Remember, you are no better than farm animals to them. They have refined themselves through fasting, meditation, and initiation. I haven't got into the specifics of initiation in this series, but this was, and is, an extensive process, sometimes taking months or years, and often bringing the aspirant very close to death. When they emerge as successful adepts from these processes, they become part of an "intellectual aristocracy," being re-born, and becoming a new kind of illumined man, and John said the number of that man is 666.

Because they believe in reincarnation, they do not consider it a crime to murder. After all, they are just sending you back to the universal essence temporarily, until you are re-born into another body. They are just "helping" you along the path of living out your karma and learning how to enlighten yourself. This is all part of what they call "benevolent despotism," their kindly guiding hand that directs society and purges the undesirables ever so altruistically. Meanwhile, the true God's dictum, "thou shalt not kill," still stands. 

The Bhagavad Gita is considered scripture by many Hindus and it is very confusing and ambiguous. The setting is a battlefield, and the entire script is a conversion between Arjuna, a warrior who is at the head of Pandava's army, and Krishna, an incarnation of the Hindu god Vishnu. Like many ancient texts, it is written in parable form, and has dualistic interpretations. The physical battle is a representation of the internal battle in every human; the battle between materialism and spiritual detachment. Throughout the parable, Krishna is teaching Arjuna how to detach from all earthly desire. This is done through following the path of the masters through the following ideas: "Brahman, the Godhead, Atman, the divine core of personality, dharma, the law that expresses and maintains the unity of creation; karma, the web of cause and effect; samsara, the cycle of birth and death; moksha, the spiritual liberation that is life's supreme goal" (The Bhagavad Gita, translated by Eknath Easwaran, p. 23).

It is not the scope of this post to get into the spiritual doctrines of the Gita, I just wanted to give you a rough overview of what it teaches. The main thing is this: the entire point of life is achieving Sattva, or detachment, the higher mind, the higher self, also known as renunciation. Mahatma Ghandi called it satyagraha, or soul force, or “holding onto truth.” Ghandi was a nonviolent revolutionary, and he subscribed to the Gita, but only the nonviolent parts. In his zeal to free India from British imperialism he leaned more on the Sermon on the Mount in the Bible. You see, the Bhagavad Gita condones violence if it is part of your dharma, or life's mission. Krishna tells Arjuna to kill hoards of his friends and kin in the opposing army. After all, they will just come right back in another body and continue their journey. When Arjuna realizes that he has to kill these good people, he sorrows in his heart, but Krishna reaffirms to him that it is no sin:
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 he shall bring salvation to all those who shall believe on his name; this being the intent of this last sacrifice, to bring about the bowels of mercy, which overpowereth justice, and bringeth about means unto men that they may have faith unto repentance.

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

Protagoras of Abdera, Greek sophist from ancient Athens, summed up humanism with this famous declaration: "Man is the measure of all things." Humanism is the worship of human beings, with special emphasis on authority figures, intellectuals, and the elite. Humanists believe that man is the ultimate authority, the ultimate source of truth, and the most evolutionary advanced animal. They believe that morality, egalitarianism, ethics, and law should be determined by logic, rationalism, and pragmatism, not by divine edict, revelation or moral absolutes. They believe that since there is no empirical evidence for a Creator, that man is the highest form of existence and intelligence, and must rely on his own reason and intellect to discover truth, to exact justice, and to create an equitable world.

John Dewey was one of the most influential humanists from the 20th Century, and after his famous Terry Lectures, helped to write the first Humanist Manifesto in 1933. You can also thank Dewey for the modern state-sponsored educational system. He had such a zeal and fervor for humanism that it was almost considered a religion, and after his death in 1952, the word secular was inserted to divorce any attachment to faith. There have been several other Manifestos written since the 50s, but the tenets are basically the same: there is no evidence for God or the supernatural, therefore nature holds all the answers to truth; ethics are derived from human experience; reason and intelligence are the best tools that man possesses; the individual is "free" but has "social responsibility;" and the highest goal of mankind is a global community or -you guessed it- a one-world government. Rights include the following: birth control, abortion, divorce, euthanasia, suicide, free education, free health care, universal basic income, etc. They also believe that nation-states and national sovereignty (where have we heard that before?) are deplorable, ecological preservation is imperative (i.e., environmentalism), and that the world community (i.e. world government) should be empowered to exact a world-wide income tax and redistribute wealth. Overall this is very creepy stuff. Click here for a PDF of all the Humanist Manifestos if you hate yourself and want to read this nonsense. 

We know that Mystery Babylon believes in a god (Lucifer), the spiritual realm, and the supernatural, so we can only assume that they created humanism as another exoteric shell for the profane. But just like every other religion created by the mystery schools, humanism is a dualistic concept; it means one thing for the "eyes above" (initiates) and another thing for the "eyes below," (profane). At the core of Luciferianism lies the concept that intellect is the ultimate savior of mankind, which is humanism on stilts. Although Mystery Babylon believes in a deity, there is much emphasis on deifying themselves.  Besides Dewey, there have been scores of other famous humanists that have come both before and after him: Freud, Darwin, Nietzsche, Marx, Hegel, and a host of others. 

Here is where we get to the fascinating part. The Book of Mormon not only warns about humanism, but divides it up into varying degrees of Anti-Christian behavior and thought. Sherem and Korihor represent the extreme reactionary end of the spectrum. They were blatant Anti-Christ's who made it painfully obvious that they believed that no being such as Christ could exist. Notice that after Sherem and Korihor died that was the end of it. But Nehor was by far the most destructive Anti-Christ. He was much more subtle, he never said that Christ did not exist, he simply emphasized the need to support church leaders with money, stressed the importance of popularity, and introduced priestcraft to the Nephites. Nehor's Anti-Christ philosophies persisted throughout Nephite culture for some time and had disastrous consequences for the church. Unfortunately, this is the type of humanism that is rampant in the LDS ChurchTM today. Using God as an appeal to authority, they covertly shift the focus from Christ to themselves; the very essence of humanism. 

Here are some of the philosophies of the Book of Mormon Anti-Christs starting with Sherem:

There should be no Christ; for no man knoweth of such things; he cannot tell of things to come: Sherem referred to prophecy as "blasphemy," and was concerned that the concept of Christ was replacing the law of Moses. He was a religious fundamentalist, and considered a belief in Christ as heretical. He also rejected prophecy, which is strange in light of the fact that he subscribed to the law of Moses. In the end, he only confessed when he knew he was going to die, and he knew that he had been deceived by the devil. To fear that he was a son of perdition meant that he would've had a certain amount of knowledge of God, more than most. Was he a mystery school initiate? Maybe. (See Jacob 7)

Korihor, on the other hand, was an atheistic humanist, and in my opinion a mystery school initiate.  He agreed with Sherem, and taught several additional philosophies that are prevalent today (see Alma 30):

Ye cannot know of things which ye do not see: he was an empiricist; relying on empirical observations to interpret reality.

Looking forward to a remission of sins is the result of a deranged and frenzied mind: this is a statement that resonates with Freudianism; who believed that religion is "an expression of underlying psychological neuroses and distress," and "a means of giving structure to social groups, wish fulfillment, an infantile delusion, and an attempt to control the outside world."

There could be no atonement for the sins of men: this falls under the category of reason. It is not reasonable to humanists that human beings need saved. Save from what they ask? If you cannot see God then he does not exist; therefore, there is nothing to be saved from.

Every man fared in this life according to the management of the creature: this is the doctrine of works; earning your way into success. If you earn more than someone else it was because of your own merits, not the blessings of some unknown God. 

Every man prospered according to his genius: your intelligence comes from the random chances of the gene sequences of nature. If by natural selection you are more intelligent than another, you have the right to take advantage of, dominate, or enslave them.

Every man conquered according to his strength: this is survival of the fittest, or Social Darwinism. If through the evolutionary process you are bigger and stronger than another then you have the right to kill or plunder them. 

Whatsoever a man did was no crime: this is moral relativism. Because man fares according to his management, genius and strength, the purpose of life is to get everything you possibly can for yourself at whatever cost; the ends justify the means. 

What does this all have in common? Nature: the worship of nature. Korihor is a prototype of the natural man. In nature, animals compete for habitat, food, and mating rights. They kill each other, eat each other, steal from each other, and mate with as many females as possible (some species are monogamous but not many). Most species of animals would be criminals if they were to become human. Humanism is an appeal to nature. Consider what humanist Julian Huxley (brother of Aldous) said in 1959:
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

Here is where Satan really gets you, and how the mystery schoolers infiltrate religious organizations. The order of the Nehors are the true wolves in sheep's clothing the Lord was talking about. They trick you into believing that they are actually the vicars of God; the logical fallacy of the appeal to authority. They get you to engage in despicable and harmful acts that you think are Gods' commandments, while they simultaneously take your money. Brigham Young got the saints to accept polygamy (another name for adultery), and blood atonement (another name for murder), because they thought he was a prophet of God. Russel Nelson got thousands, maybe even hundreds of thousands of Latter-Day Saints to get the Covid vaccine, who were otherwise against it or undecided, by using his authority as President of the ChurchTM,. It does not matter that this announcement was not made in General Conference or done as an "official" declaration to the church; it had the desired effect. Oh yes, the Nehors are dangerous men indeed. 

Let's examine their principle tenets:

Every priest and teacher ought to become popular: leader worship. "God bless you to keep your eyes riveted on the leadership of the Church. We will not lead you astray. We cannot" (Ballard, BYU speech, 1994). This also involves unhealthy adoration. I remember as a missionary in 1998 going to an event in Chicago to see President Hinckley speak with everyone waving handkerchiefs at him. Not to mention the first class tickets, the catered meals, and the chief seats at the conference center. In church meetings the leaders are quoted endlessly, their conference talks are regurgitated to death, their every action emulated, their positions envied by ambitious "spiritual giants," who dream of being called to general leadership positions. 

They ought not labor with their hands, but they ought to be supported by the people: most clergymen get a salary of some sort. I taught people on my mission that the LDS leaders were a lay clergy but about eight years ago I discovered they weren't. Nope, $120K a year is a pretty hefty salary, much more than I imagined a "modest stipend" would be. And perks like free college and cars are nice too. Good for them. 

They teach that all men should have eternal life: this one is interesting. If you want followers you can't tell prospective converts that they might go to hell. This would, after all, affect tithing earnings. I am open to opinions on this but the Book of Mormon only talks about heaven and hell; being saved or damned. While the D&C talks about different degrees of glory and everyone being "saved" in a kingdom except the sons of perdition. Any insights on this in the comment section would be helpful. 

They are lifted up in the pride of their hearts and wear costly apparel: self explanatory. There are tithing payers who are on the verge of starving while the LDS leaders wear very expensive suits. 

The Nehors are the masters of priestcraft: those who set themselves up as a light unto the world to get gain and praise. Not only that, but they endeavor to enforce it by the sword. When Gideon disagreed with Nehor's philosophy he was killed by him. It was the priests, lawyers, judges and teachers of the order of Nehor that burned the women and children in Ammonihah, and who beat and spit upon Alma and Amulek as they were naked in prison. It was the Nehors who converted the priests of Amulon to their craft, the Amulonites who had kidnapped young Lamanite girls and forced them into lives of marital servitude, and had made themselves taskmasters over Alma the younger and his people. These same Nehors killed more of the defenseless Anti-Nephi-Lehies than the Lamanites they were fighting with. 

The Nehors did so much damage precisely because they were subtle Anti-Christs. Again, Nehor never denied the existence of Christ, instead he used the church as a vehicle to introduce and implement his humanist ideas. A slow infiltration that ended in the entire city of Ammonihah being controlled by them; a good ole boys club that was so wicked that God destroyed it and was known thereafter as the desolation of Nehors. One reason priestcraft is so pernicious is because it introduces Satanic philosophies into God's church slowly, steadily, and stealthily, until God's church becomes Satan's, without the members knowing it; like a frog that is slowly brought to a boil in a pan of water. And it transforms ordinary, imperfect and often blatantly wicked men into leaders who are associated with the divine and holy. Here is what Paul had to say about it:
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. 

 Postscript:

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.

  1. Great post. I would love to have dinner with you sometime and discuss thia as there is so many aspects of this that can be explored. I have researched

    I always find it interesting that that those who claim to be enlightened and superior to the unwashed unworthy masses are themselves slaves to the exact same control methods used on the masses as illiustated in the duologue between Krishna and Arjuna in the following verse: 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?

    They are subject to their own manipulation tactics and they can't see it.

    I have researched the Luciferin and Satanist portions which use many different philosophys to manipulate mankind. They teach Natural Law (not to be confused with nature or Natural Man in the context of your article) as occulted knowledge on how to use, manipulate Natural Law and mankind to advance their agenda. The problem they have is in their perversion of Natural Law leaves out the principal that acts as the cosmic glue that holds the universe together. It is illustrated by the symbol "The Seed of Life". The Satanic version is seven interlocked circles representing seven principals that govern the universe. But the true version has 8 circles. 7 interlocked with the 8th encumpassing the 7. The 8 circle is representative of the principal of Love/care.

    I don't know if you are aware of the work of Mark Passion but he is a former Satanist who left Satanism to make people aware of what is going on.
