In our series about modern idolatry we have stressed that idol worship is a means to an end. The goal of the idol pushers is not for you to believe in their gods, but rather for them to consolidate power and control over money, behavior, and mind. We have seen that the idol is merely the bait which disguises the hook.
While we might think that only the “heathen” fall for such cheap, shiny bait, we should examine ourselves to be sure we are not “going with the flow” along the wide river of destruction within a school of captured fish. It may not be long before we are swept up in the human current and herded into the same situation that Daniel’s friends encountered: “bow down and worship the image,” or be killed (Dan. 3:15).
Although bowing to sculptures, performing mock human sacrifices, worshiping in groves and meeting secretly in tombs may seem like rituals of the past, this series has shown that they are still done by the elites of our day. Ezekiel 37:23 tells us idol worship will be rampant in the “latter days” and Revelation 13:15 states that forced image worship will take place like under Nero and Nebuchadnezzar. This series hopes to describe the idol-pushers who are erecting the image of the beast so that we may know where to draw a line and say “we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image which you have set up” (Dan. 3:18).
Child sacrifice, an aspect of idolatry not yet discussed in our series, seems like yet another remote horror of the past, irrelevant to our discussion of modern idolatry. However, as we will see, this aspect of idolatry is alive and well in the agenda of the modern idol-pushers. Infanticide, abortion, sterilization, birth control, population control, democide, eugenics, social engineering and psychological guilt are all heavily sponsored tools used through media, schools, churches and world government organizations that ensure that the legacy of child sacrifice continues to this day.
It is difficult to imagine the Canaanites sacrificing their children to Baal and Moloch. We might guess that this behavior was an outlier on the graph of history. However, cursory research reveals that it occurred throughout the Middle East, in England, Europe and the Americas. One could even argue that this trend was an inevitability among advanced peoples. Importantly, the religion of Abraham bucked this trend.
The story of Isaac graphicly illustrates the emergence of a new, loving God who says, “Do not lay your hand on the lad” and has a ram sacrificed instead. Outside of the Hebrew religion, human sacrifice was normal. The logic would have gone something like this: “Mother Nature the Earth Goddess provides so much for us and we cannot ever hope to pay her back, so as a sign of our gratitude and humility we need to pay homage through self-sacrifice. This year, the honor falls on your family’s newborn.” As ancient societies got more decadent, child sacrifice may also have been a convenient way to get rid of unwanted, illegitimate babies conceived during holiday orgies.
Fortunately, in the modern civilized world infanticide is no longer practiced, right? Wrong. Consider this front page NY Times article from Jan. 18, 2020 talking about modern China: “The communist regime bears a heavy burden of guilt [for] the one-child policy…forced abortions and sterilizations and infanticide required or encouraged.”
Interestingly, it is not just brainwashed communists in backward underdeveloped countries engaged in mass child sacrifice. The article goes on to say that “alongside that Communist guilt there is a Western guilt as well, because the one-child policy was linked to a project hatched by Western technocrats, funded by Western institutions, and egged on by Western intellectuals—a classist, sexist, racist, anti-religious program that sought to defuse a “population bomb” that, we now know, would have defused itself without forced sterilization programs in India and signs in Chinese villages saying ‘You can beat it out! You can make it fall out! You can abort it! But you cannot give birth to it!’”
The idea for this horrific population control (that has now backfired) did not come from twisted, sadistic dictators like those in China. It originated from the charitable UNESCO, United Nations, the Rockefeller Population Council, Cold Spring Harbor and Planned Parenthood. Julian Huxley, David Rockefeller, Margaret Sanger, Bill Gates (Sr.), and many more are the same “Western Technocrats” who gather in groves to worship before an idol.
They are the self-proclaimed saviors who think evolution created them and will grant them eternal life if they can dictate their scientific utopia. Before that great day can occur, however, a clean-up must be done. “At the moment, it is probable that the indirect effect of civilisation is dysgenic instead of eugenic ; and in any case it seems likely that the dead weight of genetic stupidity, physical weakness, mental instability, and disease-proneness, which already exist in the human species, will prove too great a burden for real progress to be achieved. Thus even though it is quite true that any radical eugenic policy will be for many years politically and psychologically impossible, it will be important for Unesco to see that the eugenic problem is examined with the greatest care, and that the public mind is informed of the issues at stake so that much that now is unthinkable may at least become thinkable” (UNESCO: Its Purpose and Philosophy p. 21).
Fifty years ago, the idol-pushers manufactured a crisis called the “population bomb” so that they would have a “global problem” to make their “global solution” (total control) seem more attractive. Paul Ehrlich, the author of The Population Bomb (1969) was chosen to be an instant UN celebrity as he prophesied worldwide about doomsday.
The problem: world-wide exploding population and pollution. The reaction: panic and fear. The solution: population control through a one-world scientific dictatorship. Along with birth control and sterilization, Ehrlich openly advised the spiking of Africans’ food with sterilant (NY Times, Nov. 25, 1969)! His agenda was not groundbreaking. In fact, he was merely picking up the torch from Julian Huxley (UNESCO, 1950s), Fabian Socialist Bernard Shaw (famous for advocating for death panels in the 1930s), and Malthusianism’s founder, Thomas Malthus. Malthus was looking around way back in the 1790s and warning, “the pie is only so big!” and “there are too many mouths to feed!” Instead of seeing people as a resource who can each create more than they consume, he saw them as a disease.
None of Malthus’ or Ehrlich’s predictions came true, but Ehrlich simply breathed out bigger lies, laced with typical anti-God/anti-family vitriol. Nowadays, informed researchers realize that the “population explosion” was not a cause for panic, but merely a result of innovations in sanitation lengthening lifespans, which caused a temporary overlap of generations that live longer. Unless lifespans increase again, the number of people on the planet will soon stabilize as record numbers die of old age. So after 50 years of promoting population panic, even the NY Times now admits: “the population bomb fizzled, and while its Malthusianism endures around the edges of environmentalism…mostly the population control crusade is recalled as a mistaken extrapolation, a well-meaning mistake. Like the United States and most developed countries, China has a birthrate that is well below replacement level.”
Carbon Problem and Technocracy Solution
Yes, the population crisis was a “well-meaning mistake” (that sacrificed millions) and the population crusade was recalled, but the truth is getting out very slowly, especially “around the edges of environmentalism.” Media, universities, and other cultural propaganda outlets may have abandoned the “population bomb,” but they have taken up the notion that our “carbon footprint” is the real problem.
Bill Gates gives T.E.D. lectures that spell out the importance of reducing the population if we hope to “save the earth.” According to his brand of earth worship, it is no longer actual pollution that is the problem, it is carbon dioxide, and more specifically the humans that exhale it. Before the war on carbon began, there was cause for optimism: lead had come out of automobile fuel, rivers and oceans were protected from dumping, and coal smokestacks had been equipped with filters and scrubbers. With actual toxic pollution being mitigated, the creation of a new global “crisis” became critical.
The latest invisible boogieman is carbon dioxide, a non-poisonous gas that plants love. CO2 generators are actually sold on-line to greenhouse owners who want their plants to grow stronger and faster. A statement by Dr. Frederick Sietz, former president of the National Academy of Sciences (which 18,000 scientists signed) said: “There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing…catastrophic heating of Earth’ atmosphere…Moreover…increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.” So why would the United Nations Environmental Panel and all the big corporations want to limit CO2? Don’t they know that higher CO2 will grow healthier plants, thereby reducing the scarcity that Malthusians worry about?
As it turns out, reducing scarcity is bad for business. For example, the scarcity of oil was one of the most valuable lies that kept OPEC and its allies on top of the world’s economy (known as the “petrodollar”) for a century. According to Big Oil’s heavily funded experts in the 1980’s, there was “only so many dinosaur bones in the earth,” and the scarcity made oil into black gold.
Cheap energy and cheap staple foods is bad for business. And now that their fossil fuel scarcity lie has been proven false, a new energy scarcity must be imposed. This time, it will be forced through law. Soon “There will only be so much energy…allotted to you…in order to save the planet.” No longer the petrodollar, this new system is called the carbon stock exchange, complete with carbon taxes and carbon credits, reminiscent of medieval indulgences!
This “new” system was actually contrived in the 1930s and was called Technocracy. A thin disguise for totalitarianism, the goal of Technocracy is to “register on a continuous 24 hour-per-day basis the total net conversion of energy” in order to mathematically figure out “the amount of physical wealth available in the form of consumable goods and services for consumption by the total population.” The socialist system would “provide a continuous inventory of all production and consumption” and “the consumption of each individual, plus a record and description of the individual.” When Elon Musk’s grandfather and Justin Trudeau’s father were preaching Technocracy in the 1960s, it may have seemed far-fetched to tabulate every individual’s energy usage, but today we are only perhaps a year away.
Smart meters, smart phones, smart cars, and smart cities promise the vision that technocracy saw. Websites like Bloomberg’s The Technocrat teach businesses how to merge with government for the best chance to monopolize the global surveillance needed for this socialist system. Naturally, all the Council on Foreign Relations connected mega-corporations are founding members of the carbon stock exchange: Ford, Toyota, British Petroleum, JP Morgan, Citibank, Rothschild Australia, etc. all work closely with government to speak with a united environmental voice.
The idol-pushers know that being tracked and traced and given a carbon allowance for everything you eat, everywhere you travel, and every unit of energy you use does not sound like utopia to most people, so the idol pushers have devised a way to use guilt, religion, and old-fashioned paganism to convince people to “go green!”
These Emperor’s New Clothes tailors have made a Babylonish garment that fits just right. It goes something like this: “Mother Earth is hurting; she is so sad, and it’s on account of you having too many kids, using up too much oxygen, driving too many places, eating too much meat, and even using too much water. If you could just go ahead and confess your environmental sins and pay some carbon credits to an international peace organization, change your behavior, and make a couple sacrifices (maybe choose to not have babies?), that would make Mother Earth really happy.”
Caretakers of Earth
This logic may sound silly to some, but it is quite reasonable to anyone educated in public universities in the last 20 years. As a social justice warrior in the early 2000’s, this author was known to use the Bible to force environmentalism on his fellows. After all, Genesis 2:15 says “The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and to keep it.” This shows man’s responsibility to be “stewards” or caretakers of Earth.
Also, Leviticus 25:23 tells us that the planet is God’s:
The animals are his too:
“For every beast of the forest is Mine, The cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird of the mountains, And everything that moves in the field is Mine” (Psalm 50:9).
And God cares about every individual animal:
He is even concerned about saving the trees:
However, there are other verses that show man as ruler over the rest of the creatures: Then God said,
Man is meant to reproduce freely, without guilt. Also, Genesis 9:1 makes it clear that man is meant to consume:
Thankfully, we are not forced to choose one view over the other. Plants and animals belong to God, but he has put them under man’s rule. Man is to till and take care of the earth, but he is given the right to use it and fill it. He is not to hurt or destroy trees and animals unless there is a good reason. This precious balance is summed up nicely in Psalm 8:6
And finally, in Psalm 115:16
God’s plan is with man, not with the trees and animals. The earth is in no danger of being “filled” with people in the 2020s!
People on the Move
In previous sections, we have discussed how idol pushers hijack institutions and groups in order to deceive through propaganda and conjure up an “egregore,” a zeitgeist, or a mob spirit to unleash on the existing order. Environmentalism, as it turns out, is an excellent example of this maneuver. In his handbook for revolutionists, called Rules for Radicals, longtime activist Sol Alinsky gives advice on how to get folks moving: “Remember: once you organize people around something as commonly agreed upon as pollution, then an organized people is on the move. From there it’s a short and natural step to political pollution, to Pentagon pollution (p. 13).” And who could be against “fighting pollution?” We should all want to reduce pollution and take care of the earth, but we must not fall for the shiny bait and get swept up with the “people on the move.” The mob is moving toward another French Revolution, driven by the same one-world, anti-God idol-pushers who have enslaved people throughout history.
“We are on the verge of a global transformation” said environmentalist David Rockefeller, proponent of the Earth Charter. “All we need is the right major crisis.” As if in answer, Mikhail Gorbachev predicted at the Earth Summit in Rio in 1988 that “The threat of environmental crisis is the ‘international disaster key’ to unlock the New World Order.” “I believe that the New World Order will not be fully realized unless the United Nations and its Security Council create structures…which are authorized to impose sanctions and make use of other measures of compulsion.”
In other words, forced on countries. A proud Communist, Gorbachev was entirely on board with the UN’s environmental agenda, which they describe as “a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced—a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals…every human action [will] be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.”
Whether you believe that CO2 is a threat to earth or not, understand that environmentalism is the machinery that is erecting the new Babylon-headed image of the beast. The idol pushers’ new image is called Agenda 2030 and makes many bold promises reminiscent of the Rosicrucian Utopia: Clean Environment, Fixed Climate, No Crime, A Lot Less People, Fairness, Equality, Peace, No Racism, No Discrimination, One Language, One Religion, Wilderness Preserved, Improved Health, Improved Diversity, Equality of Income, Equality of Education, Equality of Wealth, and No Disease.
These sound like goals we would all like to see come to pass. But caveat emptor! “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Prov. 14:12). Historical examples show us that the “side effects” and “trade-offs” that come with this 2030 agenda are essentially the same ones you would get from an invading army.
“Clean environment” comes with extreme taxes (which hastened the fall of the Roman Empire). “Fixed climate” throttles back travel (e.g., Third Reich traveling papers). “No crime” means track and trace 24-hour surveillance (East German Gestapo). “Less people” obviously means forced birth control, abortion and sterilization (Nazis). “Equality” means eugenics and outcome-controlled opportunity policies (U.S.S.R.). “Peace” means submission to the state (Iran). “Equal Education” means limited access to info and deliberate dumbing down (North Korea). “One Religion” means worship of the state (Rome). “Wilderness preserved” means forced crowded city ghettos (Nazis), now referred to “smart city integration.” “One language” means certain cultures, languages, or traditions are made illegal (e.g., Turkey). “Wealth Equality” means limited freedom to earn or invent (Communism), dependency on the state, renting from government corporations (Fascism), not owning. “Diversity” means masculinity maimed (eunuchs), with only “P.C” language, culture, and history allowed. No longer many colors of free thought, speech, printing, and religion; just one non-offensive grey (Babel).
It will come as no surprise that the Jesuits and other socialist ecumenical groups are allying with the UN and billionaire-funded socialist political NGOs to pressure all levels of government to enact legislation and “guidelines” designed to wage war on family, tradition, religion, property ownership, patriotism, and the inalienable rights that are currently retarding their agenda.
“The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages” says Revelation 17:15 about the shift to a big brother government (beast). “God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to hand over to the beast their royal authority, until God’s words are fulfilled” (Rev. 17:17).
As the Director of the UN World Health Organization said in 1991 in the SCP Journal: “To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism and religious dogmas.” In our next section, we will see how a “new” religious dogma has already challenged and replaced true religion, and how that “new” dogma is really just the same golden calf they always use.
