"What is going on with the Southern Baptist Convention? I am stunned that any leader of the SBC, much less the President, would be encouraging faithful Christians to adopt "pronoun hospitality" (ugh) to "transgender" persons based on so-called "generosity of spirit" (like Brian McLaren's so-called "generous orthodoxy"?) in addressing "transgender" persons by their delusional pretend sex. The idea that Jesus or Paul would *ever* have referred to a man as a woman or a woman as a man in anything other than satire or derision for abhorrent behavior is absurd revisionism in the extreme." Robert A.J. Gagnon, Professor of Theology at Houston Baptist University

"The president of the Southern Baptist Convention is all on board with transgendered grammar ("preferred personal pronouns"). And this is a putatively conservative denomination. There is no inoffensive way to say this: this is a move toward apostasy." Retired Pastor P. Andrew Sandlin, Founder and President at Center for Cultural Leadership

"Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition" 2 Thessalonians 2:3

The falling away and apostasy from the one true and personal Holy Triune Creator God has not ended. From the pre-flood antediluvian age to our own, it continues unabated until the second coming of Christ at the end of history. (Revelation 19:1-21)

Falling Away of the Modern Western Church

Various secular and Christian research historians have traced the falling away of the Western church back to the latter days of the Medieval Age on through the Renaissance. It was then that certain highly placed Christian intellectuals and theologians had embraced ancient occult pantheist doctrines and esoteric evolutionary science from the time of Egypt and the Jewish Babylonian exile:

".... by the time of the Renaissance the esoteric texts of the first centuries A.D. had acquired in scholarly and humanist circles an unparalleled prestige, confronting as equals the texts held sacred by the church. In Pico's estimation, 'nulla est scientia que nos magis certificet de divinitate Christ quam magia et Cabala' (there is no science that would prove for us Christ's divinity better than magic and the Cabala.)"(God and the Knowledge of Reality, Thomas Molnar, pp. 78-79)

Eventually, recreants developed pagan Liberal Christianity. Liberal Christianity took shape among medieval mystics such as Meister Eckhart (1260-1327); occult groups such as the Rosicrucians; certain Radical Reformers (i.e., Kaspar von Schwenkfeld); and the 'death of Christian God' movement. (2) It took form and quickly became a battering ram against the Bible in 19th century Germany, where its first real manifestation was at the University in Tubingen.

It was at the University in Tubingen that a Christian theologian named Ferdinand Baur (1792-1860) had formed a school of faux-theology for the purpose of raising questions about the Christian faith, a tactic designed to undermine and destroy its status as the supernatural fount of truth and moral law. Among areas that came under attack was the supernatural third heaven, the person and deity of Jesus Christ, the Genesis account of creation ex nihilo, the fall and nature of sin, the Authority of the Bible, the way of spiritual salvation, apostolic tradition and church doctrine.

By far the most heretical and destructive incursion into divine truth was the assertion of the immanence of God at the expense of His transcendence (separateness from His creation) so that the personal Creator was reduced to a pantheistic impersonal expression of an evolving cosmic process. (2)

Throughout the 18th century apostasy picked up speed, force, power, and far-reaching influence when certain enlightened (woke) Evangelicals and Anglicans at the highest levels of church and society embraced higher critical thinking, Darwinism and science in favor of the Word of God, particularly the first 11 chapters of Genesis. Additionally, they embraced socialism as a new evangelization and called themselves Fabians.

What scientific secular-atheists and Marxists aspired to be in completely destroying and reordering Christian-based Western society and the souls of men according to scientific evolutionary principles, paranormal crazy 20th century occult pantheist Fabians actually were. Much if not most of the madness, chaos, perversion, revised history, apostasy, and all else that has gone so horribly wrong here in America is attributable to the Fabians.

John Taylor Gatto, former New York State and New York City Teacher of the Year, also tracked the rise of the destructive occult pagan Fabian intelligentsia together with the potent "interconnected shadow-government" they created to radically reshape the Western and American consciousness. In his book, "The Underground History of American Education" Gatto points to the Fabian socialist utopians as one of the most powerfully effective revolutionary 'change-making' organizations and notes that for Fabianists, Darwin was the 'weird holy man' they adored,

"...the man who gave them a theory inspirationally equal to god-theory, around which a new organization of society could be justified." (p. 180)

The first Fabians had almost all been lapsed Anglicans from Evangelical homes who became dignitaries in the Church of England: (4)

"There was a Christian fringe to the London socialism of the eighties, but this too was Anglican. The Christian Socialists came together in Stewart Headlam's Guild of St. Matthew and the Land Reform Union; and the more respectable Christian Social Union, formed in 1889 – seeking in Fabian style to permeate the Anglican Church – soon attracted more than two thousand clerical members. Dissenting clergymen too began to find a place in the Fabian Society and the London Progressives, while Unitarian churches and centres like Stanton Coit's Ethical Church provided a meeting place for believers and idealist agnostics...Socialism was for all of them, the new Evangelism." (Norman and Jeanne MacKenzie, The Fabians, 1977, p. 18)

The failure of Anglican hierarchy to repudiate Fabians, apostatizing higher critics and radical freethinkers scandalized faithful, orthodox Evangelicals whose outraged response was considered reactionary by the intellectually arrogant scholarly community. Sounding like their contemporary Darwinian pan-sexual Progressive counterparts, in 1861, Benjamin Jowett and six liberal Churchmen published a volume entitled Essays and Reviews in which they expressed alarm lest,

"...the majority of Churchmen, by holding fast the narrow, fundamental beliefs, should estrange themselves more and more from contemporary thought." (The Founders of Psychical Research, Alan Gauld, p. 49)

Alan Gauld records the rapid decline in faith among younger Cambridge men:

"Skepticism based on science flowed into and reinforced the older stream of doubt stemming from historical and ethical considerations. Their joint effect may be traced in the fact that whilst the outstanding Cambridge men of the 1840's...all took Orders (three of them becoming great clerical headmasters and six bishops), the outstanding Cambridge intellectuals of the 1870's – the Trinity group centering on Henry Sidgwick and Henry Jackson and including Frederic Myers, G. W. and A. J. Balfour, Walter Leaf, Edmund Gurney, Arthur Verrall, F. W. Maitland, Henry Butcher and George Prothero – tended towards agnosticism or hesitant Deism." (Gauld, p. 64)

The portents of apostasy in the Church of England were ominous:

"It seemed to conservative Christians quite appalling that at a time when the impregnable rock of Holy Scripture was being undermined by Darwin and his allies, a group of those whose sacred duty should have been to shore it up again had conspired to hammer their wedges not under it but into it." (Ibid, p. 50)

Above all else, the Fabians were counter-establishment, anti-tradition, sexual liberationists consisting of committed Darwinian Gnostic pagan elitists. They were, and still are, intolerant of the Holy Triune Creator, man as His spiritual image bearer, and every vestige of authority such as immutable Truth, Moral Law, sexual ethics, the traditional family, free market systems, individual liberties, and cumbersome processes of Americas' Constitutional Republic. What they wanted then and still do is to see a new order ruled by a highly evolved superior caste.

Darwinism: Revitalized, Revamped Pagan Myth

"Most enlightened persons now accept as a fact that everything in the cosmos – from heavenly bodies to human beings – has developed and continues to develop through evolutionary processes." (Humanistic Biology, Rene Dubos, American Scientist, Vol. 53, March, 1965, p. 6)

Darwin's materialist idea, which he received from his pagan grandfather, originated in the metaphysics of the ancient Ionians and Stoics during the sixth century BC while Teilhard de Chardin's spiritualized Hindu conception favored by Transhumanists and New Age (new pantheist spirituality) adherents, leapfrogs off of Darwin's materialism into Vedanta monism. Both conceptions bristle with hostility toward and hatred of the living Holy Triune God, creation ex nihilo, and faithful orthodox Christianity.

Darwin's idea is taken by modern 'new' pagan Progressives as final proof that the universe is governed, not by the divine will of Jehovah Who created humans out of dust,

"...but by a virtually divine force Darwin called natural selection. Having produced human consciousness, evolution may now...be brought directly under the control of its own product, Humanity, the accomplishment of natural selection..." (The Making of the New Spirituality, James Herrick, p. 150)

Eventually, with increased acceptance of Darwinism's inverted exegesis within the Western ruling class, academia, science, seminaries and the Christian church, the stage was set for the progressive emergence of man as god, 100 genders, Transhumanism, nihilism, and the myriad pathologies and madness polluting and killing the church and destroying Western civilization.

Darwinism's Inverted Exegesis

In place of God's good creation from which men fell there is now an upward process beginning with crisis quantum fluctuation, an exploding Cosmic Egg (Big Bang), emergent matter (Sagan's star stuff) pregnant with life and an eternally expanding cosmos. Emergent life somehow evolves out of star stuff, then up and through the life and death of millions of evolved creatures that preceded humans by millions of years until at long last an apish humanoid or pair of humanoids (mythical Adam and Eve) emerge into which the deity of evolutionary theism places a soul.

This upside-down view leads to loss of identity (identity politics) and a philosophy of nihilism. (3) This is because if men were once something else – a genderless blob of matter – then later on sea creatures, lizards, birds, dogs, and later still some kind of ape-like creature, then not only are humans in process of becoming something else, maybe divine supermen, super robots or cosmic beings, but nothing can be said about transgender, LGBTQ+, lesbianism and 100 genders competing in female sports and using female restrooms since all life forms ascended from a genderless blob of matter.

Moreover, with regard to soul, if life arose from chemicals or a blob of matter and then billions of years later man evolved from lower life forms, then his rational nature, his soul, differs not qualitatively but only quantitatively from the beasts. Like beasts, man is not a person created in the spiritual-image of the One God in Three Persons but is rather a creature of the earth. Like them he has no spirit – will, higher mental faculties, and conscience. Thus he is a fleshy androgynous robot or hominid whose brain is organized by the genome and the genome shaped by natural selection.

By the turn of the century, evil spirits from the abyss – spirits of madness, despair, ideology, heresy, apostasy, nihilism, animism, nature worship, and evolutionary thinking working within apostate Evangelicals had crept into and poisoned the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Church. Today Christendom is dead and the same dark spirit and its host is bringing our Republic to ruin while steadily injecting abominations into the whole body of the sleeping American Church. Aided and abetted by falsifiers of the Revealed Word who have "penetrated the Church" with a mist of lies resulting in narcissistic self-affirmation, emotional ecstasy, moral relativism, acceptance of evolutionary philosophy and other ancient wisdom traditions along with liberation from sin and hell,

"...Western civilization is daily committing suicide, by aborting itself, ignoring the law of God, and binding itself in Green chains. What of professing Christians? It is not clear many believe, as they still did at the American Revolution, that 'the truths of the gospel are the most pure, its motives are the most noble and animating, and its comforts the most supporting to the mind.' Our culture is arguably as enslaved as were the ancient people chained by Gaia and Python. " (Resisting the Green Dragon, James Wanliss, p. 267)

Darwinism is an abomination of desolation from hell that conceptually unmakes and renders meaningless the Word of God, thereby opening church doors to rot and disintegration.
