A primary tool in textual criticism used to spot later interpolations into texts of antiquity and historical time-lines.  Anachronisms can be caused by a number of factors in ancient texts: (1) It can occur in sacred texts due to translation from one language or dialect within a language, to another at a later date, in which cognate terms are selected but have different dates of origin  (2) They can occur as a result of Interpolation (an intentional attempt to insert a newer text into an older one.  (3) An intentional use of a non-cognate term in a translation to mask the original intent.  



The difference between these three types of Anachronisms are important, as they can indicate the occurrence of deliberate deception, rather than simply honest efforts of linguistic transmission.  Several anachronisms are found in the English translation of the Bible.  Two particular examples discussed on this site, are the theological terms: "Church" and "Easter".

 

Apollo, Apollyon, Apollon


"APOLLYON. The Greek name, meaning "Destroyer," given in Revelation 9:11 for "the angel of the bottomless pit" (in Hebrew called Abaddon), also identified as the king of the demonic "locusts" described in Revelation 9:3-10...In one manuscript, instead of Apollyon the text reads "Apollo," the Greek god of death and pestilence as well as of the sun, music, poetry, crops and herds, and medicine. Apollyon is no doubt the correct reading. But the name Apollo (Gk Apollon) was often linked in ancient Greek writings with the verb apollymi or apollyo, "destroy." From this time of Grotius, "Apollyon" has often been taken here to be a play on the name Apollo. The locust was an emblem of this god, who poisoned his victims, and the name "Apollyon" may be used allusively in Revelation to attack the pagan god ... "


- Anchor Bible Dictionary



Apollo came to the Greco-Roman world from the Hurrian and Hittite divinity, Aplu.  Aplu, comes from the Akkadian Aplu Enlil, meaning "the son of Enlil", a title that was given to the god Nergal, who was linked to Shamash, Babylonian god of the sun.

APOLLO IN ROME

On the occasion of a pestilence in the 430s BC, Apollo's first temple at Rome was established in the Flaminian fields, replacing an older cult site there known as the "Apollinare".[1] During the Second Punic War in 212 BC, the Ludi Apollinares ("Apollonian Games") were instituted in his honor, on the instructions of a prophecy attributed to one Marcius.[2] In the time of Augustus, who considered himself under the special protection of Apollo and was even said to be his son, his worship developed and he became one of the chief gods of Rome.[3] After the battle of Actium, which was fought near a sanctuary of Apollo, Augustus enlarged Apollo's temple, dedicated a portion of the spoils to him, and instituted quinquennial games in his honor.[4] He also erected a new temple to the god on the Palatine hill.[5] Sacrifices and prayers on the Palatine to Apollo and Diana formed the culmination of the Secular Games, held in 17 BCE to celebrate the dawn of a new era.[6]

Now the last age by Cumae's Sibyl sung Has come and gone, and the majestic roll Of circling centuries begins anew: Justice returns, returns old Saturn's reign, With a new breed of men sent down from heaven. Only do thou, at the boy's birth in whom The iron shall cease, the golden race arise, Befriend him, chaste Lucina; 'tis THINE OWN APOLLO REIGNS',

Babelism


Gen 11:2-9  And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.  And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole Gen 11:7  Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.  So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.  Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

transitive verb


1 a : to influence or affect especially injuriously by witchcraft b : to cast a spell over


2 : to attract as if by the power of witchcraft : enchant, fascinate <bewitched by her beauty> -Websters



Act 8:9-11  But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:  To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

Sorceries: μαγεία, mageia, pron. mag-i'-ah, “magic”: - SEE SORCERY.

 

Main Entry: MAG·IC 

Pronunciation: \ˈma-jik\

Function: noun

Etymology: Middle English magique, from Middle French, from Latin magice, from Greekmagikē, feminine of magikos Magian, magical, from magos magus, sorcerer, of Iranian origin; akin to Old Persian maguš sorcerer

 

 

The use of sorcery to pass itself off as the "Power of God" is an ancient practice in Christianity that dates as far back as the New Testament itself.  The very KIND of sorcery (HERE Specifically PERSIAN, "μαγεία") being practiced by SIMON was institutionalized by the ROMAN EMPIRE as "Christ-Mass".  The "Solstice" craft, mentioned in Jeremiah 10 is PERSIAN in origin, originating from Persia's very Gan Edin region mentioned in Genesis.  Simon "Magus" as well as the word "Sorcery" in THIS text (not being the same as "Pharmakia") is a reference to PERSIAN "magik" practices, and are the historical origin or Rome's ritual today known as "Christ-Mass".  


The mixing of practices of "commerce" (buying and selling spiritual things for money) are noted from the beginning with this kind of "sorcery", first noted here in Acts 8:9-11.  This practice was authorized by Rome's Pope Sixtus III (666), institutionalized, and made mandatory throughout the entire empire,  in 435 CE.

 

The intentional use of occult symbolism and ritual (from PERSIA), is employed at "Christ-Mass", in such things as its "Solstice date" to its "Fig/Fir tree", to its Baal Balls, to its Lucifer lights, all intentionally designed to reflect back to Persia's Gan Edin, and the "tree of knowledge", (i.e., serpentine enlightenment) damned by God in Genesis 3.  Many think the "spiritual effect" all this "produces" is the result of "the power of God", just as the people of Samaria, had mistaken it, in the 1st century CE, in Acts 8:9-11.

 

Blasphemy


Mat 12:31-35  Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come. Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.



The Tree - Mat 7:17-19  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 



The Serpent - Gen 3:4-5  And the serpent said..., Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 



The Enlightenent / Treasure (gift) - Gen 3:6-7  And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. 



The pattern of the "Christ-Mass Tree" (originally the Persian "Yalda Tree"), imported into Rome from Persia's Gan Edin (Garden of Eden) is designed to duplicate all three of these elements of original blasphemy.  Occultists such as Shirley McClain consider it an "energizing affirmation" to repeat statements of "blasphemy".  This "confusion" (Babel) is the result a long history of symbolic conditioning implemented in societies and religions throughout the world, through the work of past Empires, and their "secret societies" which have engineered the social customs and rituals of not only western Christianity (per example, in Christmas), but even prior Synagogue Judaism, and later the Islamic Mosque movement,  as well.



In all three versions of apostacy, the original founders and their subsequent families were murdered to establish "Babelism" (a/k/a "Mystery Babylon" religion) and it's doctrine of "confusion" (exchanging God for Satan) in their symbolism and teaching.  In Judaism, the original prophets were murdered to establish the Bamah house movement (Synagogues), 



Mat 23:31  Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets. 



In Christianity, the literal family of Christ were murdered to establish "The Church", 


The COMPLETE and UNIVERSAL execution of every blood relative of Christ known to ROME was accomplished by the seventh century, along with all known JEWISH believers. - Malachi Martin, former Jesuit Priest, p. 44, The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Church


In Islam, Mohamed's own direct family descendants were literally thrown out into the streets undressed, to confiscate his home, and turn it into a "Mosque" by the Caliph, who had imported "Christian Masons" to construct it's building (which was then shortly thereafter struck by lightening and burned to the ground)


The "doctrine" of Babelism, is at it's core a form of "Blasphemy", and nowhere is this more evident that in the practice of "Christ-Mass", once dedicated to the worship of Satan, now done "in the name of Christ", though virtually the same rituals, symbols, and even deity, have been retained in the process.


The "blasphemy" of "Babelism" has incorporated itself into all government controlled religions of the world, including all three forms of monotheism, which have also been permeated.  For Protestant Christians, who have the example of "the calling out" (ecclesia) in the New Testament, and the later reformation, coming out from this secret institutionalized devil worship, especially in the practice of Rome's "Christ-Mass" should be a non-sequitur.  No minister should really be permitted to the grace themselves with the term "Protestant" of "Evangelical", who defends this institutionalized practice of blasphemy.

GREEK ETYMOLOGY


βυθός

buthos

boo-thos'

A variation of βάθος; depth, that is, (by implication) the sea: - deep.


βάθος

bathos

bath'-os

From the same as βαθύς; profundity, that is, (by implication) extent; (figuratively) mystery: - deep (-ness, things), depth.


βαθύς

bathus

bath-oos'

basis

bas'-ece

BIBLICAL DEFINITION - The spiritual realm of the dead undefined by the reaches of normal space-time limitations, thus virtually "bottomless" like the depths of the deep sea. The linguistic imagery merged both the idea of the "grave" or place of the "dead", with the limitless of the depths of the deep ocean.  Both mental pictures of the "Deep Sea" and the "Grave", remained present in it's usage.

 

Brainwashing


Main Entry: Brain·wash·ing 

Pronunciation: \ˈbrān-ˌwȯ-shiŋ, -ˌwä-\

Function: noun

Etymology: translation of Chinese (Beijing) xǐnǎo

Date: 1950

1 : a forcible indoctrination to induce someone to give up basic political, social, or religious beliefs and attitudes and to accept contrasting regimented ideas


2 : persuasion by propaganda or salesmanship - Webster's Online


"A remarkable thing about cult mind control is that it's so ordinary in the tactics and strategies of social influence employed. They are variants of well-known social psychological principles of compliance, conformity, persuasion, dissonance, reactance, framing, emotional manipulation, and others that are used on all of us daily to entice us: to buy, to try, to donate, to vote, to join, to change, to believe, to love, to hate the enemy. Cult mind control is not different in kind from these everyday varieties, but in its greater intensity, persistence, duration, and scope. One difference is in its greater efforts to block quitting the group, by imposing high exit costs, replete with induced phobias of harm, failure, and personal isolation".- Phillip G. Zimbardo, Ph.D

Caesaropapism


CAESAROPAPISM: the concept of combining the power of secular government with, or making it supreme to, the spiritual authority of the Christian Church; most especially, the inter-penetration of the theological authority of the Christian Church with the legal/juridical authority of the government; in its extreme form, it is a political theory in which the head of state, notably the Emperor ('Caesar', by extension an 'equal' King), is also the supreme head of the church ('papa', pope or analogous religious leader).

Give a priest an inch and he will take an ell [sic] of a lot. He does not learn casuistry for nothing. Under cover of the need of abbreviation he has deleted whole paragraphs, even columns of facts which were offensive to him because they flatly contradicted what he said or wrote, and then, possibly fearing that he had cut out too much, he inserted sentences or paragraphs which "put the Catholic point of view." He has taken phrases or paragraphs of the original writers of the articles and, while r[e]taining their initials, he has repeatedly turned them inside out or has said that "recent research" (the gymnastic of some other Catholic apologist) has corrected his statements. And I say that for an encyclopedia to allow this and not candidly explain it to the public but even try to prevent the Catholics disclosing it is a piece of deception.

Free Church

 

MERRIAM-WEBSTERS ONLINE

 

: of or relating to a church that is not an established church<the American free-church system>

— free–church·ly adverb

 

WIKIPEDIA - 

The term "free church" refers to a Christian denomination that is intrinsically separated from government (as opposed to a theocracy, or an "established" or state church). A free church does not define government policy, nor have governments define church policy or theology, nor seeks or receives government endorsement or funding for its general mission. The term is especially relevant in countries with established state churches.

 

The Free Church is a pattern that evolved in the Americas, while much of Europe maintains some government involvement in religion and churches via taxation to support them and by appointing ministers and bishops etc., although free churches have been founded in Europe outside of the state system [1][2]

 

Protestant historians would typically argue that this is historically what the Christian church was before Emperor Constantine and the State church of the Roman Empire, see Early Christianity, and did not appear again until the Protestant Reformation in groups such as the Calvinists and some particular radical movements such as the Anabaptists. - Wikipedia

Grinching


GRINCHING - Definition,


(1)  Promotion of "Derogatory labeling", such as "Scrooge" or "Grinch" in reference religious, philosophical and ethnic minorities that are conscientious objectors to Rome's solar-mass and it's use of compulsion for homogeneous public enforcement.


(2) "Derogatory labeling", such as "Scrooge" or "Grinch", often directed at civil rights, religious freedom, and first amendment advocates, as "Grinch" in an effort to avoid rational discussion, logic, theology, history or reason about the legal, moral or ethical value of a "position" [most often used by proponents of State-funded, and State-enforced compulsory Christmas laws and the removal of the Constitutional provisions of separation of Church and State]


(3) "Derogatory labeling", such as "Scrooge" or "Grinch", directed at ethnic or religious minorities to create "prejudice","systemic discrimination", and "persecution" using Rome's solar-mass as the "common characteristic" to persecute.

 

"Grinching" is also stage 3 of the "Genocide Process".[Dehumanization: Comparison of target group to Animals/Insects] See below - Genocide Watch, The International Alliance To End Genocide, By Gregory H. Staten, President Genocide Watch

 

There is extensive evidence for the role of social categorization in the development and maintenance of prejudice and discrimination. People tend to experience less positive affect toward members of the out-group, remember more negative information about out-group members, and are less helpful toward out-group than in-group members (see Brewer & Brown, 1998).- Journal of Langauge and Social Psychology, Ethnic Minority Labeling, Multiculturalism and Attitudes of Majority Group Members


Language both shapes and reflects social reality. Discriminatory language is therefore both a symptom of, and a contributor to, the unequal social status of women, people with a disability and people from various ethnic and racial backgrounds...Language is a major vehicle for the expression of prejudice or discrimination. Some of the major forms of discriminatory language are:


MAJOR FORMS OF DISCRIMINATORY LANGUAGE...


• Extra Visibility or Emphasis on Difference

• Stereotyping

A stereotype is a generalised and relatively fixed image of a person or persons belonging to a particular group. This image is formed by isolating or exaggerating certain features; physical, intellectual, cultural, occupational, personal, and so on which seem to characterise the group.

Stereotypes are discriminatory in that they take away a person's individuality. Although they may reflect elements of truth, these are usually misinterpreted or inaccurate owing to oversimplification. The status of minority groups in society is often adversely influenced by use of stereotypes.

• Derogatory Labeling

The discriminatory nature of derogatory labels used to describe members of minority groups is often obvious. However, derogatory labels are still commonly used, and must be avoided.

• Imposed Labeling

A characteristic often shared by minority groups is their lack of power to define themselves. Often the names and labels by which they are known, whether derogatory or not, have been imposed on them. Imposed labelling may be inaccurate and may also be alienating for the groups it supposedly describes. - - The University of Salford, Guide to Non-Discriminitory Language

Mark, of the "Beast"

 

The phrase itself, like many other phrases, were a play on words in the New Testament, contrasting the Greek phrase the "Preaching of the Kingdom" (of God) which was audo-phonetically similar in Greek.

 

 MARK OF THE BEAST  VS. PREACHING OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD

"CHARAGMA of the THERION"       -       "KERUGMA of the THEOS"

 

Rev 19:20  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.


Rev 19:20  καὶ ἐπιάσθη τὸ θηρίον καὶ ὁ μετ᾿ αὐτοῦ ψευδοπροφήτης ὁ ποιήσας τὰ σημεῖα ἐνώπιον αὐτοῦ, ἐν οἷς ἐπλάνησε τοὺς λαβόντας τὸ χάραγμα τοῦ θηρίου καὶ τοὺς προσκυνοῦντας τῇ εἰκόνι αὐτοῦ· ζῶντες ἐβλήθησαν οἱ δύο εἰς τὴν λίμνην τοῦ πυρὸς τὴν καιομένην ἐν θείῳ. 

 

Act 20:25  And now, behold, I know that ye all, among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom of God, shall see my face no more.


Act 20:25  Καὶ νῦν ἰδοὺ ἐγὼ οἶδα ὅτι οὐκέτι ὄψεσθε τὸ πρόσωπόν μου ὑμεῖς πάντες, ἐν οἷς διῆλθον κηρύσσων τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ Θεοῦ.. 

 

"Mark of the Beast" was an OPPOSITE to "Preaching of the Theos", so obviously the Antonym bore an intended relationship.  Both were "messages" that were 'received" an RESULTED IN A "BRANDING".  For the follower of the REAL CHRIST, they were SEALED, for the follower of the FALSE CHRIST of the ROMAN EMPIRE, they were MARKED.

 

THE MARK OF GOD


Eze 9:6  Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house. 

Eph 4:30  And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. 

Rev 7:3  Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads

 

THE MARK OF THE BEAST


Gen 4:15  And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, 

Rev 14:9  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 

Rev 13:16  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads

 

When you RECEIVE THE MARK OF GOD, you do so by having faith, or choosing to follow (believe in) THE PREACHING OF GOD, when you RECEIVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST, you do precisely the SAME THING, only in response to PRECISELY THE WRONG POINT OF REFERENCE (THE EMPIRE), i.e., the KINGDOMS OF THIS WORLD, offered to Christ by Satan in exchange for his worship.

 

 

THE IMAGERY OF THE HAND AND THE FOREHEAD

Why is this imagery used? MARKED IN THE FOREHEAD?

 

Once again, the biblical use of prophetic Antonyms, show a contrast of two opposite things were being referred too:

 

Exo 13:9  And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD'S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.  

 

Rev 14:9  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand

 

 

THE LAW OF THE BEAST (ROMAN EMPIRE) VS. THE LAW OF GOD (KINGDOM OF GOD)

Theodosius II Codex Messiah/Torah

POPE SIXTUS III (Literally 666) 



ANTOMYMNS in these prophetic descriptions, a practice that is found throughout the entire Bible in the prophetic tradition, make these prophetic contrasts unmistakable and inexcusable to miss.

 

Rev 17:8  

The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition - The beast is the Latin kingdom; (Ἡ Λατινη βασιλεια); consequently the beast was, that is, was in existence previously to the time of St. John; (for Latinus was the first king of the Latins, and Numitor the last); is not now, because the Latin nation has ceased long ago to be an independent power, and is now under the dominion of the Romans; but shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, that is, the Latin kingdom, the antichristian power, or that which ascendeth out of the abyss or bottomless pit, is yet in futurity. But it is added: - 

And they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names there not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is - By the earth is here meant the Latin world; therefore the meaning is, that all who dwell in the Latin world shall adhere to the idolatrous and blasphemous religion of the Latin Church, which is supported by the Latin empire, - ADAM CLARKE'S COMMENTARY

 

Rev 17:1-18  

The characters of Babylon are first portrayed. Like the beast, she is only one thing in the judgment but morally she is more important than all the rest. The general character is the great active idolatress that has gained influence over the mass of the nations; next, that the kings of the earth have lived in guilty intimacy with her, seeking her favors, while those that dwell on the earth have lost their senses through her pernicious and inebriating influence. This is the general idea first given, a character plain enough to mark the Roman or Papal system.

But more details follow. There was a woman, a religious system, sitting on an imperial beast full of names of blasphemy, having the form which marked it Roman. - DARBY

 

Rev 17:8  The beast which thou sawest was, and is not,.... It is added at the end of the verse where the same description is given, "and yet is"; this beast is to be understood not of the devil, who "was" the god of this world, "is not", being cast out by Christ, and yet is in being; for he, the dragon, is distinguished from this beast, and indeed from him the beast has his seat, power, and authority, Rev_13:1 nor any particular emperor, as Domitian, a cruel and savage one, who was in power in Vespasian's time, when he was abroad, and then was out of it upon his return, and yet afterwards was in again, being as one sent from hell, and went at last into perdition; but the Roman empire itself is intended, as we have seen, which carried and supported the Papacy; and variously may this be interpreted; as that it was in the hands of the Romans originally, and long continued with them, but now "is not", in John's time, being in the hands of Trajan, a Spaniard, "and yet is" in being, Rome being the metropolis of it: it was a very powerful and flourishing empire, "and is not", being destroyed by the Goths and Vandals, "and yet is" a large empire under the jurisdiction of antichrist; - JOHN GILL

 

Rev 17:1-18  

Contents: The doom of Babylon, the last great ecclesiastical order. 

Characters: Christ, John, 7 angels, beast. 

Conclusion: There will be in the Tribulation period a great apostate ecclesiastical system headed up under a powerful religious leader, drawing after it thousands of deluded worshippers, who in reality are worshipping the devil and the beast. This enormous world-system will be brought to a fearful end and all those connected with it will share its fate. 

Key Word: Mystery, Babylon, Rev_17:5. 

Strong Verse: Rev_17:14. 

Striking Facts: Many Bible students believe that we have here the Roman Catholic system headed up in a fearfully apostate state. A woman is symbolical of “church” (2Co_11:12). This woman (Rev_17:5) stands in contrast to the Church of Christ, which is a “chaste virgin.” The true Church is “espoused to one husband;” this one is given up to the kings of the earth. The Church is the “mystery of godliness;” this one is “mystery Babylon.” The Church offers “the cup of Salvation;” this one offers “cup full of abominations.” Mystery Babylon is rich, and it has its seat on seven hills (Rome). Christ is seen here as the, One Who shall overcome all false systems, establishing Himself as Lord of Lords and King of Kings. - SUMMARIZED BIBLE

(1) Political propagandizing

(2) Theatrics and sensationalism

(3) Disinformation

 

"Charagma of the Therion" (EXAMPLES)

 

Roy L. Branson, Jr., The End of the World, 1989

Instead of social security cards and credit cards, the number will be printed in the forehead or hand so that all who receive it will carry it at all times. Using modern technology, it will be a method to eliminate losing such cards or having them stolen or duplicated.  Just how will the number be imprinted? Will it consist only of the numbers 666? We do not know for certain, but it is possible a small computer chip will be embedded under the flesh, or even into the bone of the forehead of hand. That kind of technology is already in place. Another method may be used, but the results will be the same — instant identity, and little or no likelihood of counterfeiting or reproducing. I suspect the numbers 666 will be a prefix followed by other numbers, but I do not know. (Roy L. Branson, Jr., The End of the World, 1989, p.78)

 

Gary D. Blevins, 666 The Final Warning!, 1990

I personally believe that the MARK will be either an invisible laser tattoo (they are in the skin) or a microchip, which will be placed under the skin having the Uniform Product Code (UPC). This MARK, a type of bar code in the skin or on the microchip, would be scanned at the point of trade. . .

 

MARK: The UPC code [barcode] with needed information on each person.

NAME OF THE BEAST: This, I believe, will be a name with six letters in each name invisibly coded into the laser tattoo or microchip. A computer could pick this up as 'six digits' in each name. For example, Ronald Wilson Reagan!

NUMBER OF HIS NAME: The number 666 invisibly coded into the laser tattoo or microchip and placed on each person in the form of the UPC [barcode] 'mark'. (Gary D. Blevins, 666 The Final Warning!, 1990, pp. 204, 205)

 

Tal Brooke, When the World Will Be As One, 1989

Yet the apostle John describes a reality that has only recently come into focus: global banking, laser scanning, and the universal bar code. . . It is a tiny step to go from using a Visa card or a bank card on the Plus System and other ATM machines, in which the electronic strip is attached to the card, to putting that same strip of information on the human body so that it can be laser scanned. This has already been done with laser tattoos and implanted microchips. . . Again, what better descriptive term could John have found in the ancient world than "the mark," which would enable every citizen to buy or sell who had it? (Tal Brooke, When the World Will Be As One, 1989, pp. 229, 230)

 

Terry Cook, The Mark of the New World Order, 1996

It is my well-researched opinion that the Mark of the Beast, as related in scripture, is absolutely literal. Soon, all people on earth will be coerced into accepting a Mark in their right hand or forehead. I am convinced that it will be an injectable passive RFID transponder with a computer chip — a literal injection with a literal electronic biochip 'mark'. . .I believe that such an implanted identification mark literally will become Satan’s Mark of the Beast, as we will discuss further in this chapter." (Terry Cook, The Mark of the New World Order, 1996, p. 587)

 

DELUSION

 

The delusion apparent in the above examples are obvious to anyone with only minor and occasional reflections.  Besides their complete violation of the Biblical texts, here are the most obvious fallacies of these delusional claims intended by design to deflect suspicion away from the actual and real sources of THE MARK OF THE BEAST (according to the Bible).

 

(1) EFT already requires no chip or tattoos (all buying and selling is already controlled through central electronic and accounting systems)


(2) RFD Chipping and EFT cards are unknown and for the most part unfeasible in 3rd world countries, so the claim they will "chip" the whole world is patently absurd, and the teaching that there is no "mark of the beast" until then, is a downright dangerous demonic lie which could be costing people their eternities, while they sit around in the middle of the Roman delusion singing Kumbaya with the Antichrist, waiting for these non-feasible science fiction scenarios to unfold, in a false and deluded sense of security.


(3) They are not the Biblical description, and thus disobey God's word, and are an act of sin.


(4) The people promoting these deflections, are all supporters of the Antichrist, receive Pope Sixtus III's law on their forehead and in their hand, and worship his image.  They are not real born-again believers in the real Christ if you accept the Bible as your standard, they also make lots of money selling religion, in books that contain nothing but continuously revised garbage and disinformation.

 

It is an extremely difficult argument to make plausible, that you worship what the Bible condemns unconditionally (because of syncretism theology), side with the institutions and people responsible for slaughtering the entire family of Christ himself, and then expect that same Christ (whose very identity was stolen and used to promote the very opposite of all that he believed in and died for), to then "save you" (after such open and intentional betrayal).  That such claims would even be seriously entertained, points to a severe character flaw, if not, simply put, a delusion, which is what it actually is.

WHAT IS PROPAGANDA?

UNITED STATES HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL MUSEUM

Propaganda is biased information designed to shape public opinion and behavior. The word comes from Latin and originally referred to the biological reproduction of flora and fauna, that is, to the propagation of plants and animals. It took on new meaning in the 17th century when the Papacy established a special division within the Catholic Church, the Sacred Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith (propaganda fide), to systematically spread Catholic doctrine throughout the world to win new converts and stem the rising tide of Protestantism. Propaganda thus came to connote the dissemination of religious ideas in order to shape the opinions and behavior of mass audiences. ..Nazis eliminated the "marketplace of ideas" through terror and media manipulation and mobilized propaganda as a weapon to unite the German people around a "leader" and to facilitate aggression, mass murder, and genocide. <> How Does Propaganda Work? Modern propaganda draws upon techniques and strategies used in advertising, public relations, communications, and mass psychology. It simplifies complicated issues or ideology for popular consumption, is always biased, and is geared to achieving a particular end. Propaganda generally employs symbols, whether in written, musical, or visual forms, and plays upon and channels complex human emotions towards a desired goal. It is often employed by governmental and private organizations to promote their causes and institutions and denigrate their opponents. Propaganda functions as just one weapon in the arsenal of mass persuasion. In contrast to the ideal of an educator, who aims to foster independent judgment and thinking, the practitioner of propaganda does not aim to encourage deliberation by presenting a variety of viewpoints and leaving it up to the audience to determine which perspective is correct. The propagandist transmits only information geared to strengthen his or her case, and consciously omits detrimental information.  - United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, PROPAGANDA

Originally used of Ger. princes and free cities who declared their dissent from the decision of the Diet of Speyer (1529) denouncing the Reformation. The word was taken up by the Lutherans in Germany (Swiss and French preferred Reformed). It became the general word for "adherents of the Reformation in Germany," then "member of any Western church outside the Roman communion;" a sense first attested in English in 1553. In the 17c., 'protestant' was primarily opposed to 'papist,' and thus accepted by English Churchmen generally; in more recent times, being generally opposed to 'Roman Catholic,' or ... to 'Catholic,' ... it is viewed with disfavour by those who lay stress on the claim of the Anglican Church to be equally Catholic with the Roman. [OED] Often contemptuous shortened form Prot is from 1725, in Irish English. Protestant (work) ethic (1926) is taken from Max Weber's work "Die protestantische Ethik und der 'Geist' des Kapitalismus" (1904). Protestant Reformation attested by 1680s.

Reich


Reich ( /ˈraɪx/; German: [ˈʁaɪç] ( listen)) is a German word cognate with the English word rich with the same meaning as an adjective, but more importantly its homonym as a noun, Reich, is usually used in German to designate a kingdom or an empire and also *the Roman Empire*.[1] The terms Kaisertum and Kaiserreich are used in German to more specificly define an empire led by an emperor.[1] To some extent Reich is comparable in meaning and development to the English word realm (via French reaume "kingdom" from Latin regalis "royal").


In English Reich is sometimes used as a loan word, which denotes a historical national state of Germany. In the case of the German Empire (1871-1918), the official name was Deutsches Reich, is literally translated as "German Realm", because formally the official position of its head of state, in the Constitution of the German Empire, was a "presidency" of a confederation of German states led by the King of Prussia. He assumed the title of "German Emperor" (Deutscher Kaiser), which rather referred to the German nation than directly to the "country" of Germany.[1]The Latin etymological counterpart of Reich is not imperium, but rather regnum. Both terms translate to "rule, sovereignty, government", usually of monarchs (kings or emperors), but also of gods, and of the Christian God.[2] The German version of the Lord's Prayer uses the words Dein Reich komme for "ἐλθέτω ἡ βασιλεία σου" (usually translated as "thy kingdom come" in English)[3] Himmelreich is the German term for the concept of "kingdom of heaven". Except for its Latin cognate regnum (kingdom) it is cognate with Scandinavian rike/rige, Dutch: rijk, Sanskrit: raj and English: -ric, as found in bishopric. - WIKIPEDIA

 

ETYMOLOGY

The German noun Reich is derived from Old High German rīhhi, which together with its cognates in Old English rice Old Norse rîki and Gothic reiki is from a Common Germanic *rīkijan. The English noun is extinct, but persists in composition, in bishop-ric. The German adjective reich, on the other hand, has an exact cognate in English rich. Both the noun (*rīkijan) and the adjective (*rīkijaz) are derivations based on a Common Germanic *rīks "ruler, king", reflected in Gothic as reiks, glossing ἄρχων "leader, ruler, chieftain".

 

It is probable that the Germanic word was not inherited from pre-Proto-Germanic, but rather loaned from Celtic (i.e. Gaulish rīx) at an early time.[4]

 

The word has many cognates outside of Germanic and Celtic, notably Latin rex and Sanskrit raja "king". It is ultimately from a Proto-Indo-European root *reg-, meaning "to straighten out" or "rule".


Holy Roman Empire


The term Reich was part of the German names for Germany for much of its history. Reich was used by itself in the common German variant of the Holy Roman Empire, (Heiliges Römisches Reich (HRR)). Der rîche was a title for the Emperor. However, Latin, not German, was the formal legal language of the medieval Empire (Imperium Romanum Sacrum), so English-speaking historians are more likely to use Latin imperium than German Reich as a term for this period of German history. The common contemporary Latin legal term used in documents of the Holy Roman Empire was for a long time regnum ("rule, domain, empire", such as in Regnum Francorum for the Frankish Kingdom) before imperium was in fact adopted, the latter first attested in 1157, whereas the parallel use of regnum never fell out of use during the Middle Ages.




Religious-Reich, The


THE ORIGIN OF THE TERM ON THIS SITE

 

Our use of the term began in internet discussion groups around 2003.  At that time, it was mocked as a denigrating term referring indiscriminately to "Religious-Conservatives" because the distinction attempting to be made in the debates and discussions between a normal religious-conservative, and the product of nazification by right-wing extremism, was in denial and being resisted as true or valid.  Later the term began to pop up in other places, expressing roughly the same concerns though it's intended meaning expanded or shrunk based on the personal perspectives of it's user.   It became popular with critics of the "Christian-right", some uses were universal and indiscriminate toward the entire religious-socio-political sector, others more appropriately targeted the "Reich" within "Christian conservatism", which was it's intended meaning as defined by the two words separately in the dictionary.

 

New York times Author and War correspondent, Chris Hedges published a book entitled, "The Christian Right and the War on America", in which the subject of the growing concern over "religiously inspired" fascism was fully addressed, and examined historically.  In interviews, Chris Hedges, without ever using the term per sae in the attempt not to provoke incendiary reactions, describes it's definitions and concepts, which are simply the two words put together. Religious and Fascism (as in 3rd Reich).

 

RELIGIOUS-REICH was a term coined for use in this website to refer to the "Christian-fascism"  ideology which became present in American Evangelical circles during the Bush administration, documented  by  Chris Hedges as mentioned above, with particular attention to Fox News indoctrination of unsuspecting conservative Audiences into World War II, Vatican/Nazi political ideology and propaganda from within a  previously patriotic American "Conservative-Religious" framework.  Thus engaging in a political "conversion process", which radicalized and re-oriented average Protestant/Evangelical conservative audiences toward over-throw of their government, and the establishment of a "Christian nation" primary born out of an "alliance" between converted conservative Evangelicals and Roman Catholicism.  This "conversion process" was documented in a book written by a Canadian psychologist "The Authoritarians" and was cited numerous times in Lectures given by John Dean concerning Barry Goldwater's unfinished publication entitled "Conservatives Without Conscience" in which Barry Goldwater himself intended to address the issue from the perspective of an Iconic American conservative.  The book, "The Authoritarians", which John Dean cited, described what had been previously known as the "Hitler syndrome" taking place in conservative politics with it's resulting empirical and statistical data surfacing as evidence in psychological studies.

 

Thus the term RELIGIOUS-REICH was used to refer to and distinguish from the normal non-radicalized religious conservative Evangelical , whose orientations came mostly from traditional Evangelicalism, and those which had been "converted" to militancy and Imperialism (or what used to be called "Romanism"), indicative of the changes which were orchestrated prior to World War II, Germany.

ORIGIN OF THE TERM IN OLD TESTAMENT

 

The Greek term translated "Revelation" (Apocalypse), is from this reference in the Tanakh. The term "Revelation" is not found in the Old Testament KJV, which is a very interesting fact.  Once again we see the choice of words by traditionalist translators, which provide a disconnect from the Tanakh.  However, DISCLOSE, or DISCLOSURE is used, and this is where it is found. It the ONLY REFERENCE in the entire TANAKH you will find to it, so it would be very hard to miss the significance of it.  Here is what it points too:

 

Isa 26:20,21  Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.  For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. KJV

 

Isa 26:20,21  Come, My people, enter into thy inner chambers, And shut thy doors behind thee, Hide thyself shortly a moment till the indignation pass over.  For, lo, Jehovah is coming out of His place, To charge the iniquity of the inhabitant of the earth upon him, And revealed hath the earth her blood, Nor doth she cover any more her slain!' YLT

A primitive root; TO DENUDE (especially in a disgraceful sense); by implication to exile (captives being usually stripped); figuratively to reveal: -  + advertise, appear, bewray, bring, (carry, lead, go) captive (into captivity), depart, disclose, discover, exile, be gone, open, X plainly, publish, remove, reveal, X shamelessly, shew, X surely, tell, uncover.

 

Thus, THE REVELATION... (Rev. 1:1) is actually the term HA'GALAH,  a Jewish term that is used to describe the KOSHERING of VESSELS for PASSOVERHAGALAH by KOSHER.COM


It is the meaning of the very core of what the Jewish Apostle John was writing to the "ecclesia" about in his prophecy, now called "the book of Revelation" which probably would be more accurately (in it's historical Jewish context) understood if not entitled, HAGALAH of YEHOSHUA MESSIAH. (Rev. 1:1)

 

The "Koshering process" for VESSELS for a PASS OVER of God's INDIGNATION, is precisely the JEWISH THEME of this BOOK.  And it is no accident, that the Book begins with a reflection of the JEWISH FESTIVAL OF DEDICATION (Hanukkah, a civil holiday which was also traditionally a TIME FOR JEWISH MARRIAGES), where THE TEMPLE was RESTORED after the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION in 167 BC on DECEMBER 25TH, by an IDOL dedicated to the worship of THE SUN-GOD (A/K/A, Satan) of the Empire.

 

The traditional English versions of the book of Revelation, hide more than they reveal through their apparently intentional choice of words which disconnect and obfuscate the text's actual meaning. Consequently, any serious student of this piece of Biblical literature, should begin their own study with a personal re-translation of the book using it's primary definitions from the Greek lexicon that have been replaced, and finding their Hebrew cognates from the Old Testament to understand it's Jewish context. (It is an extremely Jewish Book, based on the festival cycles within Judaism, and condemns both the contemporaneous and future theft and conversion of it's message into Roman Gentile Syncretism by "apostates" it identifies as Liars, False Apostles, Nicolaitans, Prophets of Baal, Jezebel, slaves of Apollo, 666, and worshipers of the Beast and his image)  Clearly identified with the a future Roman religious system which would claim falsely to represent "Christ" and be founded by 666.  Pope Sixtus III fulfilled these prophecies concerning 666.

Simonry


ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA

 SIMONY,  buying or selling of something spiritual or closely connected with the spiritual. More widely, it is any contract of this kind forbidden by divine or ecclesiastical law. The name is taken from Simon Magus (Acts 8:18), who endeavoured to buy from the Apostles the power of conferring the gifts of the Holy Spirit.  Simony, in the form of buying holy orders, or church offices, was virtually unknown in the first three centuries of the Christian church, but it became familiar when the church had positions of wealth and influence to bestow. The first legislation on the point was the second canon of the Council of Chalcedon (451). From that time prohibitions and penalties were reiterated against buying or selling promotions to the episcopate, priesthood, and diaconate. Later, the offense of simony was extended to include all traffic in benefices and all pecuniary transactions on masses (apart from the authorized offering), blessed oils, and other consecrated objects.

From an occasional scandal, simony became widespread in Europe in the 9th and 10th centuries. Pope Gregory VII (1073–85) rigorously attacked the problem, and the practice again became occasional rather than normal. *After the 16th century, it gradually disappeared in its most flagrant forms with the disendowment and secularization of church property(SIMONY, ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA ONLINE)


*NOTE: Since the acquisition of Encyclopedia Britannica by the Vatican, it's articles have begun to reflect it's new ownership.  The idea that "Simony" has gradually "disappeared" is laughable.  All you have to do to see "Simony" gone AMOK, is turn on your TV on Sunday morning.  It's now the "standard practice" of an entire dominant sector of American Christianity (that has been uncovered to be privately funded and sponsored by the Vatican) which has come to be known in Protestant circles as the Vatican's American "Merchant Church".  It fronts as "Evangelical/Protestant" but it embraces all of Rome's heretical doctrines, Rome's murderous gnostic Latin "Fathers", and Rome's practices of Simonry (while fronting the "label" Christian or Evangelical).  It sells "books" by "celebrities" that are not even authored by them.  Whose content is simply taken from others, and falsely given their name. (some of whom are not even "Christians")  It's a completely "commercialized" operation using "religion" as a "product".

 

HISTORICAL DEFINITION

QUOTE: But, not content with this, they by degrees introduce and bring in all things else sacred into their power ; impose and set forth new decrees, interpret the old, and alter what they please. And that these matters might not be looked into, sacrilegiously they take away the Holy Scriptures out of the hands of the people, making it almost capital in them so much as to have or read them, lest they should discover the avarice, pride, simonry, and fraud of their corrupt mysteries and traditionstending only to their profithonour, and secular advantages. And this proceeding to that height of exorbitance, and rendering it no longer tolerablemade a necessity of reformation – THE HISTORY OF RELIGION, R. M. EVANSON, B.A., RECTOR OF LANSOY, MONMOUTHSHIRE, 1850

Simony is the ecclesiastical crime of paying for holy offices ...Simon Magus offers the disciples of Jesus, Peter and John payment so that anyone he would place his hands on would receive the power of the Holy Spirit. This is the origin of the term simony[1] but it also extends to other forms of TRAFFICKING FOR MONEY IN "SPIRITUAL THINGS". - The Reader's Encyclopedia (1965), New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Company, vol.2, p.932, "Simon." Smith (1880)

 

LITERARY DEFINITION

Dante Alighieri condemns simonists to the eighth circle of hell in his Inferno, where he encounters Pope Nicholas III buried upside down, thesoles of his feet burning with oil, in a mock baptism. Dante goes on to predict the damnation of both Pope Boniface VIII, the Pope in office at the time the Divine Comedy is set, and Pope Clement V, his successor, for that sin. Writers in the early Renaissance, such as Niccolò Machiavelli and Erasmus, condemned the practice, while Blaise Pascal attacked the casuistic defenses offered by those accused of simony in his Lettres provinciales.-WIKIPEDIA

Tradition, Traditions


THE TWO KINDS OF TRADITIONS


 THE TRADITION OF THE APOSTLES

 

2Th 2:15  Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. 

 

2Th 3:6  Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us. 

 

THE TRADITIONS OF MEN

 

Mar 7:7  Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.  For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.  And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition. 

 

Col 2:7  Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 

 

The TRADITION of the APOSTLES is not kept by Churches which usually cite the texts on TRADITIONS due to the fact that they accept the Nicene Council which rejected all Jewish practices continued by the Apostles in the New Testament through the 3 centuries up to the Nicene Council itself, where the official statement was crafted explaining the reason for Rejecting all such "Jewish" practices, even those from the New Testament, as being the desire to "Separate themselves" from the "Odious Jews".  While appeals are made by these religious leaders to the first two texts on keeping the TRADITIONS of the Apostles, it is clear, it was precisely the rejection of these very Apostolic traditions, to introduce theirown much later historical innovations (which they now erroneously call "Tradition" of the Apostles), that was done.  Thus there is actually an "Opposite-speak" talking place in the discussion.

And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.

Valladolid, Valladolid-Spain, Valladolid (Debate)


 

Wikipedia Entry

The Council of Valladolid (Junta de Valladolid in Spanish) or Valladolid Debate (Debate de Valladolid in Spanish) (1550–1551) concerned the treatment of natives of the New World. Held in the Colegio de San Gregorio, in the Spanish city of Valladolid, it opposed two main attitudes towards the conquests of the Americas. Dominican friar and Bishop of Chiapas Bartolomé de las Casas argued that the Amerindians were free men in the natural order and deserved the same treatment as others, according to Catholic theology.[1] Opposing him was fellow Dominican Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda, who insisted that “in order to uproot crimes that offend nature” the Indians should be punished and therefore reducing them to slavery or serfdom was in accordance with Catholic theology and natural law.[2]Although both Las Casas and Sepúlveda later claimed to have won the debate, no clear record supporting either claim exists. The affair served to establish las Casas as the primary defender of the Indians[3] and saw the New Laws of 1542 upheld, providing some momentum to weaken the encomienda system further.[4] Nevertheless, it failed to alter the treatment of the Indians substantially.[4] - WIKIPEDIA [3/30/12]

Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda argued that during the Valladolid controversy in the middle of the 16th century that the Native Americans were natural slaves because they had no souls.... At the end of the Renaissance, the Valladolid debate (1550-1551) concerning the treatment of natives of the "New World" opposed the Dominican friar and Bishop of Chiapas Bartolomé de Las Casas to another Dominican philosopher Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda. The latter argued that "Indians" were natural slaves because they had no souls, and were therefore beneath humanity. Thus, reducing them to slavery or serfdom was in accordance with Catholic theology and natural law. To the contrary, Bartolomé de Las Casas argued that the Amerindians were free men in the natural order and deserved the same treatment as others, according to Catholic theology. It was one of the many controversy concerning racism, slavery and Eurocentrism that would arise in the following centuries. WEBSTER'S ONLINE DICTIONARY

EARLY ANTISLAVERY EFFORTS

Enyclopedia.com

 

A few individuals, mostly Dominican and Jesuit priests, were sickened by the Spanish destruction and enslavement of Indian populations, and they recorded their objections to slavery. Among these clerics was Bartolomé de Las Casas, who in 1518 started his long crusade against Indian slavery. These efforts culminated in the famous Valladolid debate of 1550–1551, in which he was opposed by the learned Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda. At bottom, the debate was about which was the morally superior choice of slave workers in Spanish America: Native Americans or enslaved Africans. Ironically, while Las Casas argued against the enslavement of the Native population, he suggested that Africans, whom he considered hardier workers, replace Indian slaves in the Spanish colonies. Sepúlveda supported the continued use of Native Americans, but as serfs (encomienderos) responsible for providing goods and services to their Spanish masters. Spain subsequently employed both arrangements, using Africans as individual slaves and Native Americans as community slaves. Many European colonists used white indentured workers, as well as Native Americans, but eventually enslaved Africans became their primary source of labor. The Atlantic slave trade and establishment of African slavery in the New World, especially in plantation economies that produced staple cash crops for the world market, were an important part of European commercial and geographical expansion in the early modern world. Racial slavery existed in all the American colonies by the end of the seventeenth century, and white settlers developed elaborate slave codes and racist ideas to justify and legitimize it.   With the expansion of Europe and the economic exploitation of overseas settlements, racialist thought became a powerful bulwark of slavery. Montesquieu criticized racial slavery but made an exception for warmer climes. John Locke, who wrote the fundamental constitutions of the colony of South Carolina that established slavery, characterized the state of slavery as outside the social contract but justified the enslavement of Africans as prisoners taken in a “just war.” American slaveholders would use his notion of the right to property to defend chattel slavery. Similarly, while Adam Smith criticized all forms of servitude in favor of free labor, his notion of individual economic self-interest could justify modern racial slavery. Enlightenment thinkers such as David Hume, Voltaire, Immanuel Kant, and, later, Thomas Jefferson made racially derogatory remarks against Africans. Some Christians, Jews, and Arab Muslims twisted the biblical story of “Ham’s Curse” by claiming that Africans were the descendants of Ham, who had been cursed by God for disrespecting Noah, and that this justified their enslavement. Enlightenment thought about “universal nature,” “natural rights,” and Western religious traditions of sin and punishment bequeathed a mixed heritage to the Americas: It fostered a critical attitude toward slavery but also gave birth to an intellectual racism that saw Africans as less than fully human, thus legitimizing their enslavement by Europeans. Abolitionism was to emerge from this mixture of traditions, with the abolitionists eventually arguing that the slave owners, and not the slaves, were sinners in danger of God’s wrath. In colonial British North America, a few extraordinary Quakers and Puritans started criticizing slavery and, at times, its racist justifications. One of the first protests against the enslavement of Africans came from four Dutch Quakers in Germantown, Pennsylvania, who sent an antislavery petition to the Monthly Meeting of Quakers in 1688. No action was taken on this petition, at least in part because the Quakers were deeply involved in European commercial expansion. In 1693 the Philadelphia Quaker George Keith published An Exhortation and Caution to Friends Concerning Buying and Keeping of Negroes, in which he argued against the abuses of slavery and for the humanity of Africans. Following Keith, other Quakers—such as Robert Piles, John Hepburn of New Jersey, Ralph Sandiford of Philadelphia, and Elihu Coleman of Nantucket, Massachusetts—wrote against slavery and slaveholders. The Puritan Judge Samuel Sewall, in his 1700 pamphlet The Selling of Joseph, also condemned slavery as “man stealing,” and hence contrary to the word of the Bible. He concluded, however, that free black people could never be incorporated into “our Body Politick” and must exist “as a kind of extravasat Blood [involuntary resident].”In 1735 the British philanthropist James Oglethorpe founded the convict colony of Georgia as an alternative to the slavery-based plantation colonies of the South. ENCYCLOPEDIA.COM

"Valladolid Catholicism"


A reference to the geographical and ideological origins of "Southern Klan Theology" and it's ritual "dress" (from Valladolid, Spain) , inherited from Jesuit Slave traders in the "Southeastern United States", (and which led to the first institutionalization of Roman-Catholic "Christmas", under state law, in the U.S., in the slave-state of Alabama).  The reference is "dismissed" as "Black legend" (despite it's historical nature) by Roman-Catholic sources, not wanting to acknowledge their historical involvement in the era.  The term identifies the historical source of "Christmas in Dixie" theology among "Southern" branch denominations, that were "excommunicated" over the issue of "slavery", and whose "confederacy" (in "defiance" of the United States)  had been "warmly recieved" and "encouraged" by the Vatican.

Zeitgeist


Defintion of word, "Zeitgeist"


Zeitgeist (German pronunciation: [ˈtsaɪtɡaɪst]  is "the spirit of the times" or "the spirit of the age." Zeitgeist is the general cultural, intellectual, ethical, spiritual, and/or political climate within a nation or even specific groups, along with the general ambience, morals, and sociocultural direction or mood of an era (similar to the English word mainstream or trend).

The term zeitgeist is from German Zeit- 'time' (cognate with English tide and "time") and Geist- 'spirit' (cognate with English ghost).


ORIGIN

The concept of Zeitgeist goes back to Johann Gottfried Herder and other German Romanticists such as Cornelius Jagdmann, but is best known in relation to Hegel's philosophy of history. In 1769 Herder wrote a critique of the work Genius seculi by the philologist Christian Adolph Klotz and introduced the word Zeitgeist into German as a translation of genius seculi (Latin: genius - "guardian spirit" and saeculi - "of the century").  The German Romanticists habitually attempted to reduce the past to essences and treated the Zeitgeist as a historical character in its own right, rather than a generalized description for an era. Richard Dawkins used the term to refer to the "moral Zeitgeist" in his book The God Delusion.


HEGEL

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (German pronunciation: [ˈɡeɔʁk ˈvɪlhɛlm ˈfʁiːdʁɪç ˈheːɡəl]) (August 27, 1770 – November 14, 1831) was a German philosopher, one of the creators of German Idealism. His historicist and idealist account of reality as a whole revolutionized European philosophy and was an important precursor to Continental philosophy and Marxism.  Hegel developed a comprehensive philosophical framework, or "system", to account in an integrated and developmental way for the relation of mind and nature, the subject and object of knowledge, and psychology, the state, history, art, religion and philosophy. In particular, he developed a concept of mind or spirit that manifested itself in a set of contradictions and oppositions that it ultimately integrated and united, without eliminating either pole or reducing one to the other. Examples of such contradictions include those between nature and freedom, and between immanence and transcendence. Hegel influenced writers of widely varying positions, including both his admirers (Bauer, Feuerbach, T. H. Green, Marx, Bradley, Dewey, Sartre, Küng, Kojève, Žižek, Brandom) and his detractors (Schelling, Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Stirner, Peirce, Popper, Russell).[2] His influential conceptions are of speculative logic or "dialectic", "absolute idealism", "Spirit", negativity, sublation (Aufhebung in German), the "Master/Slave" dialectic, "ethical life" and the importance of history.


THE MOVIE

Zeitgeist: the Movie is a 2007 documentary film by Peter Joseph examining possible historical and modern conspiracies surrounding Christianity, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the Federal Reserve bank. It was officially released online on June 18, 2007 on zeitgeistmovie.com.  A sequel, Zeitgeist: Addendum, focuses on the monetary system and advocates a technology-based social system influenced by the ideas of Jacque Fresco and The Venus Project.[4] Following Zeitgeist: Addendum, Peter Joseph created a worldwide social movement called The Zeitgeist Movement to promote the ideas of Fresco's Venus Project.

A third film called Zeitgeist: Moving Forward is scheduled to be released in October 2010. Peter Joseph has stated that its topics will focus on human behavior, technology, and rationality.


THE MOVEMENT

The Zeitgeist Movement is a worldwide grassroots movement advocating social change, most significantly that of society transitioning from a monetary based economy to a resource-based economy. This group is noted on their website as 'the activist arm of the The Venus Project', a non-profit venture by designer and social engineer Jacque Fresco. As of April 9, 2010, the movement claimed to have approximately 393,000 members.The Zeitgeist Movement is named after the documentary films produced, written, and narrated by Peter Joseph and released online. 


AWARDS

A remastered version of the film was screened on November 10, 2007 at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood as part of a film festival held there (the 4th Annual Artivist Film Festival) where it won the Best Feature award in the Artivist Spirit category for feature-length documentaries. In 2008, "Zeitgeist: Addendum", the sequel, received the same Artivist Spirit award at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. In September 2008, Zeitgeist, The Movie also received a Special Acknowledgment Award at Rutger Hauer's ICFILMS Film Festival in Milan, Italy.


CRITICISMS

Skeptic magazine's Tim Callahan criticizes the first part of the film on the origins of Christianity: Some of what it asserts is true. Unfortunately, this material is liberally—and sloppily—mixed with material that is only partially true and much that is plainly and simply bogus. […] Zeitgeist is The Da Vinci Code on steroids. Other reviews assert that it is "conspiracy crap",“based solely on anecdotal evidence” and “fiction couched in a few facts”, or disparaging reference is made to its part in "the 9/11 truth movement". Academic coverage of Zeitgeist has also been sparse, mainly lumping the movie in with other conspiracy movies, although at least one academic has made a more detailed (and highly critical) analysis of the scholarship (see below). Again, the coverage has been largely negative, and typically treated as part of a contemporary phenomenon of “truth” movies. According to an article published in Scientific American by Michael Shermer: “The postmodernist belief in the relativism of truth, coupled to the clicker culture of mass media where attention spans are measured in New York minutes,  leaves us with a bewildering array of truth claims packaged in infotainment units. It must be true—I saw it on television, at the movies, on the Internet, The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, That's Incredible, The Sixth Sense, Poltergeist, Loose Change, Zeitgeist the Movie.” A more severe overall treatment is given by Jane Chapman, a film producer and reader in media studies at the University of Lincoln, who analyzes Zeitgeist (“A fast-paced assemblage of agitprop”) as an example of unethical film-making.She accuses Joseph of deceit through the use of unsourced and unreferenced assertions, and standard film-making propaganda techniques. While parts of the film are, she says, “comically” self-defeating, the nature of “twisted evidence” and the false attribution of Madrid bomb footage as being in London (which she calls a “lie”) amount to ethical abuse in sourcing (in later versions of the movie, a subtitle is added to this footage identifying it as from the Madrid bombings). She finishes her analysis with the comment: Thus legitimate questions about what happened on 9/11, and about corruption in religious and financial organizations, are all undermined by the film’s determined effort to maximize an emotional response at the expense of reasoned argument. Dr. Chris Forbes, Senior lecturer in Ancient History of Macquarie University and member of the Synod of the Diocese of Sydney, has severely criticized Part I of the movie as having no basis in serious scholarship or ancient sources, relying on amateur sources that "borrow ideas from each other, and who recycle the same silly stuff" and "not a single serious source" can be found in official reference lists attached to the movie Of the film he says "It is extraordinary how many claims it makes which are simply not true." Forbes claims there is no evidence in Egyptian sources saying that Horus' mother Isis was a virgin. Similarly, neither Krishna (the eighth son), Dionysus (whose mother had slept with Zeus) nor Attis were ever supposed born of virgins. He points out that "son" and "sun" are not homophonic words in either Latin, Ancient Egyptian, or Greek, and therefore no such misunderstanding would occur; that the December 25 birth is not part of any of the myths—including that of Jesus, for whom Christmas Day was appointed as a festival day in open knowledge that the real date was not known. Dr. Forbes also criticizes the movie's use of Roman sources to suggest that Jesus didn't exist, noting that a long list flashed across the screen of supposed contemporaneous historians that did not mention Jesus is actually a list of geographers, gardening writers, poets and philosophers, who should not be expected to mention him. The allegation that Josephus' mention of Jesus was added later is criticized as misleading. Josephus actually mentions Jesus twice, with only one reference believed by scholars to have been doctored in the Middle Ages but to change an already existing mention of him. He also argues that the film misrepresents Constantine when it presents him as making Christianity compulsory, when he only legalized it; and inventing the historical Jesus, when early church records show that the historicity of Jesus had been a key element of faith from early on. - Zeitgeist, the Movie - Wikipedia.org


THESIS OF MOVIE AND MOVEMENT

The Zeitgeist movie's primary thesis was a compilation of occult teachings from occultist Manly P. Hall, seance medium Madama Blavatsky, and Civil War era Confederate Mason Albert Pike, who dedicated the forward of his book to the worship of Lucifer.  These teachings basically offer the same old syncretistic Monism propagated originally in Rome's Constantinian synthesis.  Zeitgeist focuses particularly on Christianity's absorption of Greco-Roman pagan sun-god worship in forging a new "astro-mythology" called "Christianity".  It also maintains the non-existence of Christ as a historical figure.  It's makers essentially complain about sun-worship in "Christianity" but actually advocate it as a new age deity, in the steps of George Carlin's psuedo-atheism (i.e., fake atheism).


The basic idea is presented, despite all the historical facts to the contrary, that Sun-worship Atheism (Albert Pike's "Luciferian doctrine") is the panacea to all the problems of the world, and if only people would renounce God as a fraud and "rebel" against the "powers that be", (usually exclusively pointed at "Christianity" rather than the majority population of the actual world's "powers that be" under totalitarian Atheism (China), or actual real "Sun-god-worship" in India's Hinduism (one of the most poverty stricken and oppressed [Caste system] countries on earth).  This hypocrisy appearantly never dawns on it's sophomoric drop out producer, Peter-Joseph (Merola) and his cabal of sun-worship advocates, hiding under the dishonest label "Atheism" in his movie.


It's advocacy of a Utopian communist society (without money) by a local nut-job in Venus, Florida, who created what he calls the "Venus Project" (to motivate college-students to pay for his depreciated Florida real estate), essentially turns what Walt Disney actually did in his construction of Disney World, 100 miles north of the "Venus Project", into his communist money-less Utopian global vision based on a global renunciation of God. Actually, that is what it really suggests. Perhaps realizing the vulnerability of several key points in his Movie production, the previously unemployed Music-major sophmore drop out, P.J. Merola is now attempting to distance his own "movement" from his own "Movie", which created it.  No critical comments are permitted to be posted on his Youtube video, which many have attempted to post offering corrections of factual material.  The video has become a successful monetary venture for Merola, who in the video renounces the use of money, while soliciting donations for the real estate owned by Jaque Fresco in Venus Florida. (A strange enigmatic set of obvious contraditions to any objective observer)
