I want to preface this article by stating that although it makes political references, it’s not motivated by an allegiance to any political movement or ideology. I believe in the God who inspired the Holy Scriptures and in moral government.
This isn’t about defeating Willard Romney or Barry Sotero Barack Hussein Obama. It’s not about electing the next great “banker bartender” or winning the rigged match of conservative right against liberal left. It’s ultimately about how mere men can suddenly and unknowingly fall prey to evil, invisible forces greater than themselves.
Texas Congressman Dr. Ron Paul and his son, Kentucky Senator Dr. Rand Paul have been the focal points of the Campaign for Liberty movement. Campaign For Liberty stands in opposition to the moral views and beliefs espoused by Mitt Romney as revealed by Romney’s political record found at http://www.massresistance.org/romney/
Following the Bilderberg Group meeting held in Virginia in early June, however, Dr. Rand Paul has endorsed Mitt Romney as the Republican Party nominee for President. Video of his interaction with independent media interviewers show him displaying a 180 degree like change of attitude.
Rand Paul has tried to justify compromising his allegiance to the principals of true Constitutional government he once zealously espoused by dogmatically claiming that “there are definitely things in between good and evil”.
“An endorsement doesn’t change any of your philosophy…. There are areas of agreement and if we ignore those completely, I think people want to simplify things to characterize everybody as either being good or evil, and there are definitely things in between good and evil.”
Let us now begin our look at what lies between good and evil.
Why not Romney?
Pastor Chuck Baldwin has concisely summarized why an endorsement of Romney is an act of moral compromise in an interview with Alex Jones 6/13/2012. (Nimmo, 2012)
Dr. Baldwin said attacks on our precious constitutional liberties and the implementation of an Orwellian high-tech surveillance state can be directly attributed to the foreign policy decisions of the global elite and their ruling political establishment.
Ron Paul consistently opposed this foreign policy agenda on constitutional grounds. Rand Paul’s endorsement of a man who would continue and expand this agenda – as Obama continued and expanded directives handed down to Bush – represents a serious and possibly fatal blow to Ron Paul’s long and unwavering attempt to rekindle the republic and its core principles enshrined in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Baldwin underscores a prescient fact: Rand Paul’s endorsement of Romney translates into direct support for the neocon foreign policy agenda of war waged against Syria and Iran. It signals that the younger Paul will support a destructive and limitless war waged against manufactured enemies. Rand Paul will also accept and work to implement the police state at home that is a closely related and necessary corollary of the war on terror. His endorsement is at its very core a betrayal of Ron Paul’s legacy and his attempt to restore the republic. It downgrades if not wrecks the Paul name as a standard bearer for liberty.
Rand’s endorsement destroys any hope that he will step up and continue his father’s long and determined battle now that the elder Paul is winding down his congressional career. As Baldwin points out, Rand Paul is in the back pocket of the establishment. Like virtually every other member of Congress, he will be used as a prop in an ongoing war of evil and destruction that will ultimately destroy America.
A vote for Romney is clearly a vote for a continuation of the incremental expansion of un-Constitutional and immoral domestic and foreign policies currently operative within the financial-military-industrial force triangle controlling America. Proof of this control is revealed in the common core of financial powers such as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan & Chase & Co.; Morgan Stanley, and Citigroup Inc. seen funding both Obama’s 2008 and Romney’s 2012 campaigns. (Politicians & Elections Top Contibutors, 2012)
Cultural accommodation works
Should we really be surprised that Rand Paul has apparently chosen to accommodate the Republican Party?
Cultural accommodation has been the name of the temporal success game for some time. Purpose driven churches, organizations and institutions flagrantly violate biblical principles and commands by doing things God wouldn’t do because it works. The Freemasonic based “the ends justify the means” philosophy dominates dupes who think it wise to compromise truth for success sake.
It’s possible that Rand Paul feels that counterfeit support for Romney is his ticket to return the Republican Party to its Constitutional roots. If this is true, why would the Republican Party leadership or anyone else for that matter ever trust him again? He has betrayed the values of his Dad and hypocritically flip-flopped to yoke himself to someone he recently labeled a flip-flopper. Why would Rand Paul ever think that the majority of his supporters will ever trust him after this change of clothes? His thinking is foolishly naive, illogical, immoral and unbiblical. His rapid change of moral direction makes it seem as if the wicked controllers have held a gun to his head and said to him, “you will walk in this way or you will die”. It’s my opinion, however, that Rand Paul isn’t being threatened into line by the wicked.
Logical thinking has become increasingly rare; moral thinking even rarer, and biblical thinking is now nearly extinct. The apostasy is about complete and the antichrist is about to be revealed in my opinion.
Scripture teaches us that our thought controls our speech and behavior. It also teaches us that Satan battles for control of our thinking so that he can direct us in paths of unrighteousness for the sake of his unholy name and his blasphemous earthly kingdom. (Matthew 4:1-11; Ephesians 2:2-3; Colossians 2:8; 1 Timothy 6:20; 2 Timothy 2:16)
A deceitfully wise and artful warrior, Satan employs both overt and covert strategies. (Romans 12:2; 1 Peter 5:8; Ephesians 6:11-14; 1 Peter 1:13-16)
Underlying the current trend in American thought is the blasphemous, stealth, covert undercurrent of Thelema.
What is this Thelema? We haven’t heard about it on the news have we?
Thelema is the filthy religious excrement of Aleister Crowley (1875-1947). Crowley, also known by his beloved as the Great Beast and the most evil man ever, was a black magic magician. He was also an asset of British Intelligence.
Crowley’s Law of Thelema teaches that there is no god or religion but man. The idea that man can be god has been Satan’s lie to humanity since the first days in the Garden of Eden. (Genesis 3:1-5)
The chief rules or duties of those who accept and embark upon the so-called “Great Work” of spreading Crowley’s New Religion of Thelema are as follows:
- Find yourself as the center of your own universe.
- Explore the nature and powers of your being-be initiated by discovering true self.
- Develop balance in your faculties-be strong, lust, enjoy all things of sense.
- Contemplate your own nature and the true purpose of your total being.
- Simply express your “true will” and your plans to manipulate energies you control
- Extend to the utmost the dominion of your consciousness in controlling energies.
- Don’t let others interfere with your own true will.
- Don’t restrict yourself in any way while remaining devoted to your “true will“.
Thelemic thought parallels the antichristian philosophy taught in exterior occult orders such as the Astron Argon, the Gnostic Catholic Church, Thelemic Golden Dawn, Ordo Templi Orientis , Ordo Antichristianus Illuminati, Rosicrucian Order, Theosophical Society, and the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Free Masonry.
These Free Masonic based orders teach that “every man or woman is a star in their own orbit, the center of their own universe“. They believe in Crowley’s Law of Thelema which teaches, “Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law. Love is the law, love under will.“
Those that practice Thelema believe that “nothing is true, everything is permitted”. They work to free individuals from what they falsely believe is neurotic slavery to the god of Christianity. They think the only evil is restriction.
Crowley intended to emphasize that humanity’s greatest right and most pressing need is total freedom of thought, action and belief. According to Crowley, “Do What Thou Wilt” doesn’t mean “do what you please”. Although this degree of emancipation is implied, Thelema doesn’t teach a priori that any course of action is “wrong.” Instead it emphasizes that every man and woman has an absolute right to do his or her own true will.
In other words, we find in Thelema that there is “something between good and evil”!
The unholy wind of Thelema blows in the opposite direction from God’s holy thought. Thelema doesn’t consider man to be inherently sinful and not good by nature. Thelema seeks to remain unrestricted by absolute truth. Its evil stems from self-will, is watered by demonic power, and flourishes through self-deception and denial of truth.
Thelema is detached from the real world; the world of ultimate reality. This reality is ruled by one currently invisible, morally pure, totally just, unswervingly faithful, supremely intelligent, all-knowing, all-powerful, King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the God and Savior Jesus Christ.
I’m certainly not accusing Rand Paul of being a follower of Aleister Crowley and Thelema, however, I believe that his compromise with evil could be the fruit of Free Masonic and Thelemic thought current permeating the world system. (Ephesians 2:2; Ephesians 6:12; 1 John 5:19)
In endorsing Romney, Rand Paul has chosen to do his will. He feels that his decision to support Romney registers in some unknown moral region between good and evil. This implies that he believes that the totality of what Romney stands for doesn’t matter morally. Once again, this thinking, as incorrect as it is, isn’t surprising when we consider that many professing Christian pastors refuse to address moral issues underlying the issues of public policy. Such men pride themselves in staying out of politics. What they have really done, however, is exchanged truth for a lie. This is because they have pledged silence on issues of public policy in exchange for the many tax benefits of IRS 501-c3 religious organization incorporation. These hirelings are leading the sheep to the slaughter by the truth they are withholding. They are doing their own will while professing to do God’s will. They exhort their followers to pay taxes while they themselves pay none because of the 501-c3 exemptions they enjoy due to their adulterous affair with the anti-Christian state. They do their own will with their “if it’s free it’s for me” mentality. This thinking is just the opposite of the pastoral approach of the Apostle Paul. Paul. Paul chose to support himself financially. He refused regular financial support from others in order to protect the integrity of his life and message. (1 Corinthians 9; 2 Thessalonians 3:6-15)
What is the real problem underlying this compromise with truth?
We might be surprised to know that God’s moral temperature scale runs from cold to hot. In between cold and hot lies the worst of places; the lukewarm spiritual state. Satan uses false religion like Thelema as one tool among many to move people into the lukewarm state. The lukewarm state seems to parallel that thing between good and evil that Rand Paul was unconsciously alluding to. (Revelation 3:14-22)
The word lukewarm refers to a spiritual state in which a person becomes mentally blind to the lack of the fruit of the Spirit and Christian virtue in their life. Their work isn’t motivated by sincere Christian love for God and man. It’s driven by a selfish love of the world and its pleasures.
Self-sufficient and satisfied with worldly riches and pleasures, the lukewarm lack the genuine fruit of the Holy Spirit that would empower one in passionate pursuit of eternal riches, truth, righteousness and holiness. The lukewarm hypocritically tolerate and enjoy evil on a habitual basis instead of utterly detesting and avoiding it. Self-satisfied with earthly riches and pleasures, they’re blind and insensitive to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of others. (I John 2:15 -17; James 4:4)
A tell-tale sign of spiritual lukewarmness is a boastful, self-confident trust in one’s own abilities and resources to enable a person to acquire the things needed to sustain a selfish lifestyle. The lukewarm rationalize doing wrong in their mission to do good because they trust in themselves rather than God.
A lukewarm person lives to satisfy their lust for pleasure. They won’t tolerate anyone interfering with their will. They’re thinking, speech, appearance and interests are conformed to this age instead of the eternal values and desires of the Lord as expressed in his word. Lukewarm hearts view the spiritually hot as extremists, imbalanced and even hopeless people who they feel just can’t seem to moderate their beliefs well enough to blend well with the world.
The lukewarm trapped between good and evil must repent and be transformed in their minds by the word of God before the Lord vomits them out of his mouth for their hypocritical, dead profession of faith.
The Lord Jesus Christ stands knocking at the door of the lukewarm heart asking it to turn away from its idols, favorite sins and sinful pleasures in order to love and follow him wholeheartedly. (Romans 12:1-3,9)
May we hear and obey the word of the Lord, avoid Thelemic and other anti-Christian philosophy, and come out of that lukewarm state found somewhere between good and evil.
