AUTHORITARIAN RELIGIONS: The Enslavement of Human Consciousness

Page last updated: Nov 13, 2017 @ 11:43 pm

Human beings share a plane of continuous creation with other forms of life and existence. Being the most intelligent creature in their environment, humans inherently have a higher degree of responsibility for the world where they live. It is not a coincidence that human children often demonstrate a very high degree of affinity and interest toward animals, toward other humans and toward the world at large which indicates an initially high state of awareness and responsibility for the world into which they come.

This natural state of human consciousness gets artificially inhibited and suppressed in order to reduce a human being into a limited servant of social orders and those who control them. While methods for accomplishing this could be numerous, this page specifically focuses on authoritarian religions collectively known as “Abrahamic religions” of three main branches: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. These religions accomplish enslavement of human consciousness through manipulation and control of thought and perception to form a persisting mental abstraction of supreme authority (God) combined with a concept of self as being a subject of such authority. The persistence of such a view is achieved through direct enforcement and indoctrination on one side and suppression of efforts to develop any alternative visions of reality on the other.

Abrahamic religions (Wikipedia):

The Abrahamic religions, also referred to collectively as Abrahamism, are a group of Semitic-originated religious sects that claim descent from the practices of the ancient Israelites and the worship of the God of Abraham. The term derives from a figure from the Bible known as Abraham. Although Judaism began as a local tribal cult in the Levant, the Abrahamists were able to spread globally through Christianity being adopted by the Roman Empire in the 4th century and the military campaigns of the Arabs who spread Islam from the 7th century onward. As a consequence, today the Abrahamic religions are one of the major divisions in comparative religion (along with Indian, Iranian, and East Asian religions). Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are the largest Abrahamic religions in terms of numbers of adherents.

The major Abrahamic religions in chronological order of founding are:

Judaism (seventh century BCE),
Christianity (first century CE)
Islam (seventh century CE)

Abrahamic religions with fewer adherents include the faiths descended from Yazdânism (the Yezidi, Yarsani and Alevi faiths), Samaritanism (sometimes classified as a branch of Judaism), the Druze faith (often classified as a branch of Isma’ili Shi’i Islam), Bábism, the Bahá’í Faith and Rastafari.

As of 2005, estimates classified 54% (3.6 billion people) of the world’s population as adherents of an Abrahamic religion, about 32% as adherents of other religions, and 16% as adherents of no organized religion. Christianity claims 33% of the world’s population, Islam has 21%, Judaism has 0.2% and the Bahá’í Faith represents around 0.1%.

Authority [Oxford Dictionary]
1 The power or right to give orders, make decisions, and enforce obedience.

Authoritarian [Oxford Dictionary]
1 Favouring or enforcing strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom.
1.1 Showing a lack of concern for the wishes or opinions of others; dictatorial.

Author [Merriam-Webster Dictionary]
1a:  one that originates or creates. b capitalized: God.
2:  the writer of a literary work (as a book).

Enslave [Oxford Dictionary]
1.1 Cause (someone) to lose their freedom of choice or action.

Christianity is based on a book called the Bible which consists of the Old and New Testaments, while Islam is based on Koran which is an Arabic appendage that follows and expands on the Biblical narrative. While both of these religions are based on ancient Judaic writings, Judaism itself is more complex as it is not a proselytized religion and is not a religion in the sense that Christianity or Islam is. Judaism “encompasses the religion, philosophy, culture and way of life of the Jewish people.” [Wikipedia]

So Judaism, by definition, is a religious, philosophical and cultural phenomenon of the Jewish people and is limited to those that are identified as such. In effect, Christianity and Islam took a concept of God that was meant for a selected group of “chosen” people called the Jews and made it applicable to everyone while completely negating and even deliberately destroying any prior cultural or philosophical constructs within cultural groups where they have proliferated.

At the end of the day, despite all the apparent complexities, differences, and variations, these three branches of Abrahamic religions operate in basically the same way – they define a human identity to be a subservient subject of some abstract of “Supreme Authority” – God – which is represented by human authorities in the form of religious “clergy” and ruling elites. There are differences in the approach, but the end result is basically the same – subjugation of human consciousness to a form of authoritarian dictate.

All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.

Key Concept

The complexity of Abrahamic religions can be reduced to one key definition:

THE BELIEF IN GOD AS A FORM OF ABSTRACT AUTHORITY THAT COMMANDS THROUGH LANGUAGE.

Once this basic belief is instilled in the mind of a human being, then it becomes easy for someone to claim to be a “man of God” – a God’s “representative” – and control such human through the use of language – using “words” to basically control thought and command action.

Genesis 1:3 (NIV)

3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

As a human being does not need to utter words in performing human actions so a being that creates realities does not need to utter words when performing actions of creation. God does not create nor communicate through words. Words are a form of HUMAN communication. God said nothing when creating the world, there is no such thing as “God’s word” or “the word of God.” The Bible is simply a book of lies and disinformation in a scheme of controlling human consciousness.

 

Basic Visions of The Bible

The Bible presents a concept of an unseen identity called “God” as an OMNIPOTENT (all-powerful) AUTHORITY that created everything including humans. The Bible itself is presented as being the WORD of this “God.”

Man’s value to “God” is assessed in terms of man’s FAITH in God’s existence and power along with man’s OBEDIENCE to “God’s will.”

Because this “God” is unseen and unheard, there is a need for selected men, and indeed entire institutions, to represent “God,” to communicate “God’s will” and interpret “God’s word” since the Bible is not an easily read or understood book and indeed has been interpreted, translated, and modified in many different ways throughout its existence.

“God” created a male – Adam – out of clay and created a female – Eve – out of Adam’s rib.
[If such was the case, wouldn’t it be more logical for “God” to first create a female, as a vessel of life for the human race, and then impregnate her with a seed?]

The first instance of disobedience to God is known as the “original sin” for which humanity is bearing a punishment of laborious life on Earth. Because of the “original sin,” all humans are considered to be “flawed” at birth. This first disobedience to God’s will was an act of eating the “forbidden fruit” from the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden. Adam was convinced to eat the fruit by Eve who was first convinced by a snake in the tree.

God’s general preoccupation is to watch, judge, and punish or reward humans… even though each human was supposedly granted “free will” to act at one’s own discretion. God ultimately rewards good behavior by sending a human “soul,” after human’s death, to a place of joy called Heaven (or Paradise) and punishes bad behavior by sending a human soul to a place of agonizing suffering called Hell – to enjoy or suffer for eternity. God also has “plans” for various humans and mankind overall. A human “soul” is a theorized essence of human identity that survives into perpetuity after the death of a body where this soul resided during man’s life.

The existing world and man’s experiences in it are viewed as something secondary and only valuable to the extent that man’s life constitutes a form of “trial” – a deciding period for whether man’s soul is sent to Heaven or Hell in the afterlife.
[Note: this makes merely a fantasy of a supposed life after death more important than actual existence, and experiences of that existence, during man’s life.]

God, who is all-powerful, nevertheless has a nemesis called Satan that manipulates humans into “sin” and disobedience of God, as well as a denial of God’s existence or God’s omnipotent authority. When a human has difficulties with believing in God or following “God’s will” or thinking and behaving in ways not prescribed by or prohibited by the Bible (or God’s “representatives”), that human is viewed as being manipulated by Satan or possessed by demons – evil entities who act on Satan’s behalf.

Sin is generally defined as a transgression against “God’s law” or falling short of ideals set fourth in the Bible.

A selected race of humans known as Jews are considered to be God’s chosen people. God brought suffering and death onto other humans in order for the fate of the Jewish people to be fulfilled (such as in Exodus). According to the Bible, after escaping slavery in Egypt, Jews walked around in a desert for 40 years led by their leader Moses. The whole ordeal ended with Moses going up a mountain and getting a list of ten “commandments.” The final destination for the wondering Jews was the “promise land” of Israel which is actually within a few days of walking distance from the central area of Egypt (modern day city Cairo).

The New Testament of the Bible, which many Jews do not accept, describes a story of God’s only son, Jesus Christ (and his disciples), who decided to allow himself to be sacrificed to atone for all of humanity’s sins, past and future. Those who thereafter accept and embrace (worship) Jesus Christ as their savior become absolved of their sins… sort of… and through the grace of Jesus Christ, as an intermediary between “God” and men, get a chance to go to Heaven and/or be reborn after the final “Judgment Day” that the New Testament prophesizes. Those that through their lifetime do not accept Jesus Christ as their savior can expect to receive some form of punishment down the road (eternal suffering in Hell?).

The Bible also contains numerous stories that seem to communicate moral truths and maybe describe some historical events, but in the end they are all designed to reinforce a vision of the Biblical God as some supreme power over humanity.

There is a lot more than can be said about the Bible and its Arabic appendage – the Koran – but the bottom line is this:

Biblical “God” is a form of a mental abstraction – a shared vision, within a group, of an identity with omnipotent power and authority. This vision is further associated with visions of judgment and punishment which are reinforced by actual judgment and punishment from members within a group who embrace the Biblical view of reality. It is also imposed and imposes itself through the induction of fear: a man has an abstract concept of God (as described in the Bible) and yet unable to change or discard it since such an act is associated with concepts (or visions) of something bad happening for questioning the existence and authority of this “God.” It is also connected to a (Biblical) vision of self as being in the sphere of God’s influence. The fear of God, “a God fearing man,” is looked upon as a virtue among those who embrace the Bible and its vision of reality.

It may not be clear who actually wrote these literary works of visions and ideas for the programming of human consciousness, but what is clear is that they were created by some men to establish an abstract vision of omnipotent (and menacing) authority in order to establish and support their own positions of authority over human societies.

It is indeed not a coincidence that God and Jesus are often referred to as “LORD” or “Lord Jesus Christ” which is a title with a specific meaning:

Lord is an appellation for a person or deity who has authority, control, or power over others acting like a master, a chief, or a ruler. [Wikipedia]

 

The Birth of Jesus Christ – A Shift From a Republic to an Empire

Is it just a mere coincidence that the “birth of Jesus Christ” that marks the beginning of a new era falls exactly on the time frame when the Roman Republic was transformed into an Empire with the first Emperor Augustus? Before Augustus, it was Julius Caesar who set the stage for the final transformation of the Republic into an Empire. It was also Julius Caesar who introduced a new calendar (which was later updated with additional changes). It is quite interesting that months of July and August correspond to the names of Julius and Augustus while September, October, November and December simply correspond to Latin numbers Septem (seven), Octo (eight), Novem (nine), and Decem (ten). Was there supposed to be just 10 months based on the decimal system, not 12?

BC (Before Christ) and AD (Latin “Anno Domini” – in the year of the Lord) or BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era) marks a shift from a multi-cultural and relatively diverse social construct within a Republic to an emergence of uniform social constructs under an Empire-style dictatorship, and hence also the shift from naturally developing polytheistic cultures toward the enforcement of a created religion of Christianity (and later Islam in another part of the world) which supported authoritarian, Empire-style visions of reality based on One Patriarchal God / Lord (represented in reality by emperors, monarchs, and patriarchs) and his faithful and obedient servants – “slaves of God” (everyone else).

How do you create a new story? You look over various stories that are already there and make adaptations to fit your own narrative. That’s why there can be found many similarities between the story of Jesus Christ and other stories in pre-Christian cultures (book “The Pagan Christ” by Tom Harpur is a good place to start).

Shortly before Augustus became Emperor of Rome, he conquered Egypt (31BC) which was already under control of Greeks for a few hundred years (since Alexander the Great invaded Egypt in 332BC). Rome had plenty of mythological story-lines to explore in creating the story of Jesus Christ – the savior and a “middle man” between humanity and the God of the Bible. It may have been a necessary “bridge” between the public at large and what has traditionally been a God exclusively of and for the Jewish people. How or why would anyone else embrace an obscure God based on some book writings before the creation and advance of Christianity and Islam that adopted Jewish literature into their own theology? There was not even a Bible back then in its traditional sense that was being disseminated to people around the world; and different cultures, Romans including, had their own gods that worked for them:

Religion in the Roman Empire encompassed the practices and beliefs the Romans regarded as their own, as well as the many cults imported to Rome or practised by peoples throughout the provinces. The Romans thought of themselves as highly religious, and attributed their success as a world power to their collective piety (pietas) in maintaining good relations with the gods (pax deorum). …

Roman religion was practical and contractual, based on the principle of do ut des, “I give that you might give.” Religion depended on knowledge and the correct practice of prayer, ritual, and sacrifice, not on faith or dogma, although Latin literature preserves learned speculation on the nature of the divine and its relation to human affairs. For ordinary Romans, religion was a part of daily life. Each home had a household shrine at which prayers and libations to the family’s domestic deities were offered. Neighbourhood shrines and sacred places such as springs and groves dotted the city.

Judaism was picked as an ideal platform for the new religion of Christianity (and then Islam) as it already provided a vision of a single omnipotent and authoritarian God that was based on a book story (i.e. words of authority) and disconnected from any observable phenomena in nature. There was no need for validation in reality. Authoritative statements – the “Word of God” – were presented as self-validating “proofs” of the existence of this “book God.” It was a complete monopoly on the vision of God and the nature of reality by the ruling elites (this obviously included an envisioned reality of human beings as being in the domain of this new God).

John 1:1
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Once this principle in human consciousness was set in place, it opened the door for a complete psychological domination and control by whoever claimed to represent the “Word of God.”

“God said,” “Jesus said,” “The Bible says” was all that was now required to invoke the power of psychological manipulation and subjugation awarded by the new religion based on some writings rather than actual experience and relationships with the perceivable realities of existence (the sun, the energy of life that flows through all living forms, the Earth that provides resources for life to flourish… etc).

In this light, Christianity can be seen as an ancient form of “psychological operation” created by the militaristic dictatorship elites of the newly emerging Roman Empire.

Christianity as a Tool of Psychological Warfare and Enslavement

How do you enslave a group of humans whose consciousness is deeply integrated with the natural world (and with the spiritual world of their ancestors) and whose greatest honor for a man is to die in battle fighting for his land, for his kin and for his freedom, both physical and spiritual? You work to destroy their cultural consciousness and through force and indoctrination “convert” such people to a religion like Christianity that demands abandonment of everything real in life in favor of an abstract vision of a utopian “eternal life” after death:

Mark 10:17-30 [New International Version (NIV)]

17 As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?

18 “Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone. 19 You know the commandments: ‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, you shall not defraud, honor your father and mother.’”

20 “Teacher,” he declared, “all these I have kept since I was a boy.”

21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.

23 Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, “How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God!” 24 The disciples were amazed at his words. But Jesus said again, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God! 25 It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

26 The disciples were even more amazed, and said to each other, “Who then can be saved?” 27 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God.”

28 Then Peter spoke up, “We have left everything to follow you!”

29 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus replied, “no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel 30 will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields—along with persecutions—and in the age to come eternal life.

This is very similar to Scientology where the followers of Hubbard readily “disconnect” from their families and from their life savings in favor of a vision of “eternal life” sometime in the future.

Of course, once an individual abandoned everything, the only thing remaining is the reality of his own self, and here “Jesus” (in reality whoever authored this text) offers a similar “solution:”

Matthew 16:24-27 [New International Version (NIV)]

24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. 26 What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? 27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.

Indeed, all the hype aside, “Jesus” sounds like a typical totalitarian cult leader. Similarly, Scientology clergy are made to sign a “Billion Year Contract” in commitment to following the aims of Scientology and the teachings of Hubbard (thus forever forgoing any personal goals or an identity of one’s choice).

Abandoning one’s own “home,” “brother and sisters,” and one’s own “self,” especially in ancient times, would usually be considered an act of treason, save for special circumstances when, for example, someone wanted to become a wanderer and go on exploring. But really, this is not necessarily the physical departure we are talking about here: Christianity actually advocates for the “disconnection” from one’s roots in spiritual and psychological sense – disconnection from the reality of self, from one’s own kin and ancestors, from one’s homeland, and ultimately disconnection from the natural world at large by prohibiting recognition and relationship with any other power outside of those established by the Bible – the power of Authority.

1 John 2:15-17 (NIV)

On Not Loving the World

15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

Total disconnection of human consciousness from reality.

Not surprisingly though, Christianity is not so dismissive when it comes to serving the government (or obeying authority in general):

Whether the Bible uses the terms “master,” “ruler,” “government,” or any other name for an established authority, the instruction is always the same – obey. We must remember that God created the authorities ruling over us just as He created us. As Paul wrote to the Romans, “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves” (Romans 13:1-2). Peter wrote, “Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right” (1 Peter 2:13-14). Both Peter and Paul also remind slaves repeatedly to be obedient to their masters for the same reasons (Ephesians 6:5-8; Colossians 3:22-25; 1 Timothy 6:1-2; 1 Peter 2:18-20; Titus 2:9-11).

Source: https://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-government.html

It’s all about obedience:

Colossians 3:18-25 [New International Version (NIV)]

Instructions for Christian Households

18 Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

19 Husbands, love your wives and do not be harsh with them.

20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.

21 Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.

22 Slaves, obey your earthly masters in everything; and do it, not only when their eye is on you and to curry their favor, but with sincerity of heart and reverence for the Lord. 23 Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. 25 Anyone who does wrong will be repaid for their wrongs, and there is no favoritism.

Also interesting is how “Jesus” advises to deal with enemies:

Matthew 5:43-48 [New International Version (NIV)]

Love for Enemies

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Matthew 5:38-40 [New International Version (NIV)]

Eye for Eye

38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well.

In other words, the thing to do is to submit to your enemies and pray for their well being (as they cut your head off, take your property, rape your wife and enslave your children? This was still very much a part of the reality of existence for over a thousand years since Christianity was introduced.) Of course, the thing to do with real enemies, especially in medieval times, was to take an axe and chop some heads so that you can keep yours. And an advertised philosophy of revenge – “eye for eye” – was a good deterrent that made anyone think twice before attacking someone’s family or tribe or a general cultural group… while “turn the other cheek” serves as an invitation for hostile elements to roll in with an invasion.

It is no coincidence that the Roman Empire itself started falling apart shortly after Christianity was instituted as a state religion (followed by a period of Dark Ages), and Kievan Rus’ was overrun by Mongols [1240s AD] a few generations after the conversion [from around 990 AD].

Roman Empire: In the early 4th century, Constantine I became the first emperor to convert to Christianity. During the rest of the fourth century Christianity became the dominant religion of the Empire. The emperor Julian made a short-lived attempt to revive traditional and Hellenistic religion and to affirm the special status of Judaism, but in 380, under Theodosius I Christianity became the official state church of the Roman Empire, to the exclusion of all others. From the 2nd century onward, the Church Fathers had begun to condemn the diverse religions practised throughout the Empire collectively as “pagan.” Pleas for religious tolerance from traditionalists such as the senator Symmachus (d. 402) were rejected, and Christian monotheism became a feature of Imperial domination. Christian heretics as well as non-Christians were subject to exclusion from public life or persecution, but Rome’s original religious hierarchy and many aspects of its ritual influenced Christian forms, and many pre-Christian beliefs and practices survived in Christian festivals and local traditions.

. . .

The reign of Julian, who attempted to restore Classical Roman and Hellenistic religion, only briefly interrupted the succession of Christian emperors. Theodosius I, the last emperor to rule over both East and West, died in 395 AD after making Christianity the official religion of the empire. The Western Roman Empire began to disintegrate in the early 5th century as Germanic migrations and invasions overwhelmed the capacity of the Empire to assimilate the migrants and fight off the invaders. The Romans were successful in fighting off all invaders, most famously Attila, though the empire had assimilated so many Germanic peoples of dubious loyalty to Rome that the empire started to dismember itself.

Germanic Christianity: In the 4th century, the early process of Christianization of the various Germanic people was partly facilitated by the prestige of the Christian Roman Empire among European pagans. Until the decline of the Roman Empire, the Germanic tribes who had migrated there (with the exceptions of the Saxons, Franks, and Lombards, see below) had converted to Christianity.

It is clear that the enforced conversion to Christianity combined with suppression of all alternative beliefs (cultures, visions of reality) lead to the weakening of Roman construct of society making it incapable of assimilating other cultures and religions under its new “cultural construct” which dictated narrow and uniform beliefs under Christianity.

The similar pattern shows up almost everywhere, if you look for it. Here is one for England:

The Christianisation of Anglo-Saxon England was a process spanning the 7th century.

[Viking Age] The Viking Age is the period from late 8th century to mid 11th century in European history, especially Northern European and Scandinavian history, following the Germanic Iron Age. It is the period of history when Scandinavian Norsemen explored Europe by its seas and rivers for trade, raids, colonisation and conquest.
. . .
In England, the beginning of the Viking Age is dated to 8 June 793 [right after Christianization of Anglo-Saxons], when Vikings destroyed the abbey on Lindisfarne, a centre of learning [Bible studies?] on an island off the northeast coast of England in Northumberland. Monks were killed in the abbey, thrown into the sea to drown, or carried away as slaves along with the church treasures, giving rise to the traditional (but unattested) prayer—A furore Normannorum libera nos, Domine, “Free us from the fury of the Northmen, Lord.”

Christianity was inducing a state of ignorance (by inhibiting and manipulating the development of human intelligence and perception of reality) along with a state of spiritual / psychological submission in order to rob the host populations of their wealth while offering “solutions” in the form of “prayers” away from concepts of actual power through the development of real strength and intelligence.

Christians became easy prey for the not yet psychologically subdued “barbarians” because of the form of self-identity and a vision of reality that Christianity embraced – being submissive, a martyr, and a “slave of God” (some envisioned abstract of authority which was represented by real authority in the form of Christian Patriarchy). But of course, once the spiritual, psychological, and intellectual subjugation for the majority of diverse cultures of Europe was achieved through mass conversions to Christianity, the powers and abilities of the local populations were more or less equalized, and it was now simply a fight for power and influence between different branches of Christianity and related monarchies.

Christian faith may be a leisure of a civilized and orderly society where it has become limited to “Sunday church,” but it is completely impractical in the face of hardcore realities of existence where skilled use of force and intelligence is commonly the deciding factor, not “morals” combined with faith in the unseen and the supernatural. It is the use of force combined with intelligence that allows men to clearly perceive the realities they are facing and to envision and implement practical solutions in creating desirable outcomes in reality.

Man’s ability to use force and man’s ability to perceive and to reason is exactly what Christianity was designed to inhibit [and so is 1960’s Scientology] – hence, the general view of this so called religion as in actuality being an effective tool of psychological warfare in a campaign to conquer and enslave target populations. Resetting the “historical clock” and destroying cultural memory by spreading lies and disinformation about previous cultures, while suppressing true information and insight, has been a part of this psychological warfare.

Let’s look at another passage from the “New Testament:”

1 John 2:18-4:6 [New International Version (NIV)]

18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.

. . .

22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

. . .

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. They are from the world and therefore speak from the viewpoint of the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God, and whoever knows God listens to us; but whoever is not from God does not listen to us. This is how we recognize the Spirit[d] of truth and the spirit of falsehood.

The Bible reeks of psychological manipulation sentence after sentence. Anyone that doesn’t accept false teachings of the Bible is of the “spirit of antichrist.” And of course those that “speak from the viewpoint of the world” (constructing and communicating perceptions of actual realities of existence) are of the “spirit of falsehood,” while those that embrace Biblical lies divorced from reality are of the “spirit of truth” – a very clear example of psychological manipulation to divorce man’s consciousness from contact with reality and isolate it into delusions through which it can then be further manipulated.

This is also a clear example of conditioned psychosis which can spill into hostile behavior such as was actually the case with executions and mass murders of anyone who did not embrace Biblical “truths.” Notice how it suggests not to listen to anyone with an alternative and especially contradictory (disagreeable) view but brand them right away with a negative identity label (i.e. an “anti-christ”). This is very similar to Scientology’s notion of “disconnection” and branding a disagreeable person as an “anti-Scientologist” or a “suppressive person” which is basically synonymous with someone who is viewed as being evil and an “enemy of humanity.” [In Scientology, “disconnection” is a practice of severing communication and any relationships with those deemed hostile to Scientology and anyone who may be connected to such a person or group.]

There is also a striking similarity of specifically negatively branding those that left and perhaps spoken out in disagreement, as well as a vision of doom and gloom – “this is the last hour” (paragraphs 18-19). Ron Hubbard’s version of “doom and gloom”:

The entire agonizing future of this planet – and every man, woman and child on it – and their destinies for the next billions of years depend on what you do here and now in Scientology. This is a deadly serious activity.

 

Methods of Enforcement

Exodus 20: 3-4 (NIV)

3 “You shall have no other gods before me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

How can a vision of God that is not evident in existence, but which is based on book stories and words of men, be enforced over visions of reality connected to enduring contact and relationship with actual forces/phenomena/manifestations in existence? It is done through the use of force (such as in targeted punishments and persecutions), intimidation, induction of fear and continuous repetitions in the form of regular ministries, preaching, rituals of prayer and worship, and “education” (indoctrination) on the Bible and the visions of reality that it carries. This “program” would also include continuous suppression of establishing direct contact and relationship with natural forces and attempts to form (develop) perception of the actual nature of existence to include the realities of the natural world, the realities of one’s self and of other humans – hence, the suppression of scientific work, of efforts at self-improvement and empowerment, of efforts at developing greater intellectual abilities and gaining (real) knowledge especially relating to the nature of existence and one’s ability to effect it.

These book visions would gain further “validity” or “solidity” in human consciousness by becoming interwoven with actual experiences connected to real authority figures (such as parents and priests) and interactions with other humans within a shared culture. In other words, Biblical visions of JUDGMENT and PUNISHMENT would gain in power because (in the mind) they would become connected to (associated with) actual experiences of judgment and punishment by other humans, especially when such humans use a concept of God in delivering such judgment and punishment. (Christian Inquisitions is one of the most direct example of this).

It is not a coincidence that a newborn child in many practices of Bible-based religions is “greeted” with a painful experience of circumcision to cement a sense of agonizing pain and suffering into the psyche of a new human being which is subconsciously connected to a vision of God and God’s “representatives” who perform the rite.

In Dianetics, this would be simply known as an “engram” (a memory recording of a traumatic experience) on which other engrams and “locks” can be built in a chain of traumatic experiences and associations. A “lock” is a non-traumatic experience that nevertheless “restimulates” a chain of traumatic memories and through association becomes “locked” onto them. In such a way, visions of pain and suffering presented in the Bible can be “locked” to actual experiences of pain and suffering.

For those not familiar with the subject of Dianetics, here is a portion of Dianetics Instructional DVD which demonstrates the general theory:

It is doubtful that a vision of a judgmental and punishing “God” would take hold if it was not so thoroughly re-enforced by actual judgment and punishment (as well as deliberate infliction of trauma in religious “rituals”) by other humans within a culture, on top of continuous indoctrination through preachings and Bible studies.

 

Circumcision – a Ritual to Disconnect and Isolate Human Consciousness

The practice of circumcision, especially when performed during child’s infancy, not only aims to establish an early experience of (extreme) pain and suffering on which later visions of pain and suffering can be “pegged,” it also serves to sever a direct connection between man’s psyche and the actual Consciousness of Creation by inflicting pain on the organ of creation. This “barrier” in the form of a traumatic incident which becomes buried in the subconscious can also serve to inhibit ability to empathize or connect with others on a spiritual / emotional level, result in greater sense of psychological isolation, and “individualization” of consciousness – i.e. a sense of being “separate” from everything else (especially when this traumatic experience is then combined with teachings that specifically aim to form and maintain such a state of man’s psyche).

Obviously, inflicting trauma on an organ of sex can also lead to “aberrations” in the area of sexual relations: inhibitions, compulsions, fixation, obsessions or the like. Subconscious association of pleasure with pain [a very prevalent theme in Abrahamic religions], as well as inhibited ability to experience (sexual) pleasure are other likely outcomes – the conscious mind naturally withdrawing some of its connection to an area where extreme pain was experienced. All this can be remedied by discharging the recorded incident of pain (trauma) from the subconscious on one side and doing something to restore/develop the desired qualities and abilities on the other.

 

Subversion of True Education

Ideally, a human being needs to be able to freely form (develop, construct, formulate) visions (perceptions) about various aspects of existence in line with one’s own observations, reasoning and experiences. This is virtually the very purpose for having and developing the mind to begin with (see page UNDERSTANDING THE MIND). Man’s very sanity (healthy operation of the mind) depends on the ability to form visions of reality (perceptions) in line with observations (communication, contact, interaction) and sound reasoning (page SANITY AND INSANITY).

The goal of authorities behind Christianity was to restrict human consciousness to a certain set of visions about reality and to a form of controlled reasoning that would support it. The method was to substitute the natural way of constructing perception based on direct contact and experience with the “word of God.” Formation of visions (perceptions) based on contact with actual realities in existence was replaced by constructing visions based on “the word” – the written and spoken words of religious and other authorities. And this has been the model of “education” for hundreds of years under Christian rule: humans getting isolated and restricted from (open and meaningful) contact with nature and each other and instead are forced to memorize and recite (reproduce) prepackaged ideas from books and teaching authorities (ministers).

It should also be noted that under Biblical view of reality, “laborious” human existence on Earth is a form of punishment by “God” for the “original sin.” There is no place for celebration and understanding of the consciousness of nature and the consciousness of self in relationship to it.

1 John 2:15-17 (NIV)

On Not Loving the World

15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.

So while the very survival, well being and happiness of human beings depends directly on an intelligent existence within a sophisticated web of relationships between existing realities (plants, animals, and overall bio-systems; daily/monthly/yearly cycles of nature; technologies for clothing, housing, transportation… etc), they should instead direct their love and attention toward non-existing book characters and, by extension, some narrow authorities that claim to represent them.

Proverbs 9:10 (NIV)

10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Yes, of course, true knowledge and wisdom does not come from awareness and knowledge of actual realities in existence, but is derived from living in fear of a made up authority figure, reading the “Holy Book,” and compliance with Church authorities.

 

Cathedrals – Adding Realism to the Unreal

As beautiful as they may be, the purpose of cathedrals with all their awe-inspiring architecture, paintings and statues were simply meant to add a greater sense of realism and therefore “legitimacy” to Biblical fantasies.

“The Creator” was no longer to be found in the freedom of the natural world anywhere on Earth, it was now “confined” inside decorated buildings somewhere behind the altar “guarded” by men in robes speaking “God’s Word.” God was no longer evident everywhere and communicating through the self-evident forces of nature and manifestations in existence. God was now hidden in the emptiness of the abstract behind a religious theater created by men.

 

Suppression of Female Influence

1 Timothy 2:11-14 (NIV)

11 A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner.

In order to subjugate the consciousness of men (males), it had to be “disconnected” and controlled away from all other potential sources of powerful influence such as one’s own culture and ancestral ties, the land (natural environment) where he was born as well as his more direct relatives. But one of the most powerful and attractive sources of influence that could engage man’s consciousness away from Patriarchal control is an attractive female, especially with a developed consciousness. The force of attraction between a man and a female is one of the most direct manifestations of the force that brings life into existence – the force of creation.

This natural and powerful connection between a man and a woman had to be blocked and controlled in order to subjugate humans under Patriarchal authority. The suppression was accomplished by vilifying and blocking a sense of sexual attraction in man toward a female and by vilifying and blocking the sexual attractiveness AND intelligence in a female [it was a common theme to deny females education under Christian Patriarchal orders and is still a common theme under Islam].

Once the free and natural gender expression toward each other was suppressed, it was then allowed a controlled and narrow expression through the ceremony of marriage, approved (blessed) by a Church representative, and surrounded with all kinds of “rules of engagement” – rules for proper interaction and relationship including in the action of sex. Burqas under Islam is simply a more direct and explicit expression of the underlying intention that was already in place under Christianity.

Let’s look at a sample from Christian gospels:

Matthew 5:17-32

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.

. . .

27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

31 “It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’ 32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Where is the compassion and understanding that is usually associated with Jesus Christ? Who came up with these “rules?” So what if some man finds a married woman sexually attractive? An experience of sexual attraction is just that – an experience. It is not at all abnormal or unnatural for a man to feel attraction toward an attractive female, regardless of whether she’s married or not. It can simply be acknowledged for what it is without any need to repress or express it. Stigmatization of a natural experience simply creates a problem where there doesn’t have to be one. Having women wear Burkas in Islam is simply a “solution” for this created “problem” that was already presented in Christianity based on this irrational idea that sexual attractiveness of a female can be a source of some “wrong” and lead to “God’s punishment” for a male. This also goes back to an “earlier similar” idea of a female (Eve) being at fault for man’s supposed “downfall” by seducing (convincing) a man (Adam) to eat “the fruit of knowledge,” whatever that was.

So if a relationship isn’t working, then two people must stay together and suffer for the fear of breaking “God’s law” and getting punished? Marrying a divorced female is committing adultery? – punishable by agonizing suffering in hell for eternity? How can such a belief produce anything but resentment, hate, and confusion, or some form of insanity in the end?

 

The True Purpose Behind the Concept of “One God”

ONLY ONE GOD as an abstract vision in Christianity (and Islam) simply means A SINGLE POINT OF AUTHORITY, and it represents an effort to limit and trap human consciousness under a vision of one (authoritarian) power along with a uniform worldview that is based on it, at the exclusion of all others.

Exodus 20: 3-4 (NIV)

3 “You shall have no other gods before me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

The vision of the Biblical God is that of a slave owner who commands his subjects expecting absolute obedience with a threat of harsh punishment or death for disobedience while also promising potential rewards at his own discretion. Through numerous stories in the Bible it is made quite clear that reward should not be expected, but faith and obedience must always be delivered. This is a set-up for slavery which has nothing to do with the concept of an underlying power (energy, force) of creation that manifests and expresses itself through various forms of existence including that of a human being (or any other form of perceivable manifestation such as a flower, or the Sun, or some natural cycle, etc.).

One world government with one world leader – a Christian Patriarch – is a Christian vision (based on Egyptian theme of Pharaoh as a “divine ruler”). Christian so called “prophesy” (the book of Revelations) may actually represent a long term plan for the vision of reality to manifest in subjugating the entire human race under a mind-numbing, authoritarian social construct with one world leader. But of course, this is rather difficult to achieve in the real world since there will always be more than one “patriarch-wanna be” and so the movement diversifies into many “flavors” and separate groups. This is on top of the natural urge of the consciousness of life to diversify into different ways of being and expression.

In reality, there cannot even be “other gods” when contrasted to the concept of One God (power) as an ultimate creator, since any form of manifested power could in turn be viewed as a manifestation of one underlying power of creation. Recognizing and transcending different powers of existence is the way to “know God” through its many forms of expression. By denying recognition and contact with the different powers or aspects of existence (“gods”), human consciousness has been limited to a narrow identity attached to one’s transient body, whereas it can be as wide as the universe and expand beyond into other realms and dimensions… to say nothing of it being as wide as some forest or some other immediate environment where one lives. The multiple “god” system allowed humans to regulate their scope of consciousness and to selectively focus on different forms of reality in setting priorities depending on their cultural settings, environmental conditions, or some given circumstances. This system also provided the means for humans to understand the cultural consciousness of a different group by connecting to the “gods” embraced within that culture. There was no need for abandoning or enforcing anything as one could simply transition between different “gods” (as if between different languages) to operate within different cultures.

Consciousness of a human does not at all need to be limited to human form. Being a “human being” is a form of created identity (a vision of self). In fact, it was not uncommon for humans to impersonate various animals or other forms of life, forms of power, or forms of consciousness as part of rituals, plays, arts, fighting styles, or real education [explained on page SLAVO-VEDIC CULTURE – The Unlocking of Ancient Wisdom]. Humans could practice embodying consciousness of some animal, for example, in order to be able to better understand it, to communicate with it and/or use its abilities. This advancement of human consciousness becomes completely out of the question in light of Biblical teachings that advocates for total submission to abstract authority and destructive negation of all alternative cultures, beliefs and practices.

 

“God” of the Old Testament – a Program of Suppression of Human Civilizations

The Bible goes much further than just establishing a “God” as a mental abstract of absolute authority which can then be used as basis of actual authority in human form. It dictates that all other forms of thought and culture be systematically obliterated along with people that espouse them.

While the entire book of the Bible is quite large and complex, one Book of the Old Testament – the Book of Deuteronomy – lays down the foundation of Abrahamic religions with a concept of a “jealous God” that demands absolute obedience and brutal destruction of any alternative culture, beliefs, and practices.

Of course since the “God of the Bible” has no actual existence except in a form of a mental abstract among those who believe in it, the “obedience to God” translates into mindlessly following book instructions and / or those authorities that claim to represent this “God.”

From Wikipedia:

The Book of Deuteronomy is the fifth book of the Torah (a section of the Hebrew Bible) and the Christian Old Testament.

The book consists of three sermons or speeches delivered to the Israelites by Moses on the plains of Moab, shortly before they enter the Promised Land. The first sermon recapitulates the forty years of wilderness wanderings which have led to this moment, and ends with an exhortation to observe the law (or teachings), later referred to as the Law of Moses; the second reminds the Israelites of the need for monotheism and observance of the laws (or teachings) he has given them, on which their possession of the land depends; and the third offers the comfort that even should Israel prove unfaithful and so lose the land, with repentance all can be restored.

The word “Deuteronomy” means “second law” (from Greek Deuteronomion, literally “second law,” from deuteros “second” + nomos “law”).

Deuteronomy 4 (NIV)

Obedience Commanded

4 Now, Israel, hear the decrees and laws I am about to teach you. Follow them so that you may live and may go in and take possession of the land the Lord, the God of your ancestors, is giving you. 2 Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you.

. . .

Idolatry Forbidden

15 You saw no form of any kind the day the Lord spoke to you at Horeb out of the fire. Therefore watch yourselves very carefully, 16 so that you do not become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any shape, whether formed like a man or a woman, 17 or like any animal on earth or any bird that flies in the air, 18 or like any creature that moves along the ground or any fish in the waters below. 19 And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars—all the heavenly array—do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the Lord your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven.

. . .

23 Be careful not to forget the covenant of the Lord your God that he made with you; do not make for yourselves an idol in the form of anything the Lord your God has forbidden. 24 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.

25 After you have had children and grandchildren and have lived in the land a long time—if you then become corrupt and make any kind of idol, doing evil in the eyes of the Lord your God and arousing his anger, 26 I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you this day that you will quickly perish from the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess. You will not live there long but will certainly be destroyed.

. . .

Introduction to the Law

44 This is the law Moses set before the Israelites. 45 These are the stipulations, decrees and laws Moses gave them when they came out of Egypt 46 and were in the valley near Beth Peor east of the Jordan, in the land of Sihon king of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon and was defeated by Moses and the Israelites as they came out of Egypt. 47 They took possession of his land and the land of Og king of Bashan, the two Amorite kings east of the Jordan.

. . .

 

Deuteronomy 5 (NIV)

The Ten Commandments

5 Moses summoned all Israel and said:

Hear, Israel, the decrees and laws I declare in your hearing today. Learn them and be sure to follow them. 2 The Lord our God made a covenant with us at Horeb. 3 It was not with our ancestors that the Lord made this covenant, but with us, with all of us who are alive here today. 4 The Lord spoke to you face to face out of the fire on the mountain. 5 (At that time I stood between the Lord and you to declare to you the word of the Lord, because you were afraid of the fire and did not go up the mountain.) And he said:

6 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

7 “You shall have no other gods before me.

8 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 9 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 10 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

11 “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

. . .

17 “You shall not murder.

. . .

32 So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. 33 Walk in obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.

 

Deuteronomy 6 (NIV)

Love the Lord Your God

6 These are the commands, decrees and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, 2 so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life. 3 Hear, Israel, and be careful to obey so that it may go well with you and that you may increase greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, just as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, promised you.

4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

. . .

13 Fear the Lord your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name. 14 Do not follow other gods, the gods of the peoples around you; 15 for the Lord your God, who is among you, is a jealous God and his anger will burn against you, and he will destroy you from the face of the land. 16 Do not put the Lord your God to the test as you did at Massah. 17 Be sure to keep the commands of the Lord your God and the stipulations and decrees he has given you. 18 Do what is right and good in the Lord’s sight, so that it may go well with you and you may go in and take over the good land the Lord promised on oath to your ancestors, 19 thrusting out all your enemies before you, as the Lord said.

. . .

 

Deuteronomy 7 (NIV)

Driving Out the Nations

7 When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations—the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, seven nations larger and stronger than you— 2 and when the Lord your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them, then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them, and show them no mercy. 3 Do not intermarry with them. Do not give your daughters to their sons or take their daughters for your sons, 4 for they will turn your children away from following me to serve other gods, and the Lord’s anger will burn against you and will quickly destroy you. 5 This is what you are to do to them: Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones, cut down their Asherah poles [wooden symbols of the goddess Asherah] and burn their idols in the fire. 6 For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession.

 

Deuteronomy 10 (NIV)

. . .

Fear the Lord

12 And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, 13 and to observe the Lord’s commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good?

. . .

 

Deuteronomy 11 (NIV)

Love and Obey the Lord

11 Love the Lord your God and keep his requirements, his decrees, his laws and his commands always. 2 Remember today that your children were not the ones who saw and experienced the discipline of the Lord your God: his majesty, his mighty hand, his outstretched arm; 3 the signs he performed and the things he did in the heart of Egypt, both to Pharaoh king of Egypt and to his whole country; 4 what he did to the Egyptian army, to its horses and chariots, how he overwhelmed them with the waters of the Red Sea[a] as they were pursuing you, and how the Lord brought lasting ruin on them.

. . .

8 Observe therefore all the commands I am giving you today, so that you may have the strength to go in and take over the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, 9 and so that you may live long in the land the Lord swore to your ancestors to give to them and their descendants, a land flowing with milk and honey.

. . .

13 So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today—to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul— 14 then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and olive oil. 15 I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.

16 Be careful, or you will be enticed to turn away and worship other gods and bow down to them. 17 Then the Lord’s anger will burn against you, and he will shut up the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce, and you will soon perish from the good land the Lord is giving you. 18 Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19 Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.

22 If you carefully observe all these commands I am giving you to follow—to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him and to hold fast to him— 23 then the Lord will drive out all these nations before you, and you will dispossess nations larger and stronger than you. 24 Every place where you set your foot will be yours: Your territory will extend from the desert to Lebanon, and from the Euphrates River to the Mediterranean Sea. 25 No one will be able to stand against you. The Lord your God, as he promised you, will put the terror and fear of you on the whole land, wherever you go.

26 See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse— 27 the blessing if you obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you today; 28 the curse if you disobey the commands of the Lord your God and turn from the way that I command you today by following other gods, which you have not known.

. . .

 

Deuteronomy 12 (NIV)

The One Place of Worship

12 These are the decrees and laws you must be careful to follow in the land that the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has given you to possess—as long as you live in the land. 2 Destroy completely all the places on the high mountains, on the hills and under every spreading tree, where the nations you are dispossessing worship their gods. 3 Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and burn their Asherah poles in the fire; cut down the idols of their gods and wipe out their names from those places.

4 You must not worship the Lord your God in their way. 5 But you are to seek the place the Lord your God will choose from among all your tribes to put his Name there for his dwelling. [a Church?] To that place you must go; 6 there bring your burnt offerings and sacrifices, your tithes and special gifts, what you have vowed to give and your freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks. 7 There, in the presence of the Lord your God, you and your families shall eat and shall rejoice in everything you have put your hand to, because the Lord your God has blessed you.

. . .

29 The Lord your God will cut off before you the nations you are about to invade and dispossess. But when you have driven them out and settled in their land, 30 and after they have been destroyed before you, be careful not to be ensnared by inquiring about their gods, saying, “How do these nations serve their gods? We will do the same.” 31 You must not worship the Lord your God in their way, because in worshiping their gods, they do all kinds of detestable things the Lord hates. They even burn their sons and daughters in the fire as sacrifices to their gods.

32 See that you do all I command you; do not add to it or take away from it.

 

Deuteronomy 13 (NIV)

Worshiping Other Gods

13 If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a sign or wonder, 2 and if the sign or wonder spoken of takes place, and the prophet says, “Let us follow other gods” (gods you have not known) “and let us worship them,” 3 you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer. The Lord your God is testing you to find out whether you love him with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him. 5 That prophet or dreamer must be put to death for inciting rebellion against the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from the land of slavery. That prophet or dreamer tried to turn you from the way the Lord your God commanded you to follow. You must purge the evil from among you.

6 If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, 7 gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), 8 do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. 9 You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in putting them to death, and then the hands of all the people. 10 Stone them to death, because they tried to turn you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 11 Then all Israel will hear and be afraid, and no one among you will do such an evil thing again.

12 If you hear it said about one of the towns the Lord your God is giving you to live in 13 that troublemakers have arisen among you and have led the people of their town astray, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods you have not known), 14 then you must inquire, probe and investigate it thoroughly. And if it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done among you, 15 you must certainly put to the sword all who live in that town. You must destroy it completely, both its people and its livestock. 16 You are to gather all the plunder of the town into the middle of the public square and completely burn the town and all its plunder as a whole burnt offering to the Lord your God. That town is to remain a ruin forever, never to be rebuilt, 17 and none of the condemned things are to be found in your hands. Then the Lord will turn from his fierce anger, will show you mercy, and will have compassion on you. He will increase your numbers, as he promised on oath to your ancestors— 18 because you obey the Lord your God by keeping all his commands that I am giving you today and doing what is right in his eyes.

 

Deuteronomy 17:2-5 (NIV)

2 If a man or woman living among you in one of the towns the Lord gives you is found doing evil in the eyes of the Lord your God in violation of his covenant, 3 and contrary to my command has worshiped other gods, bowing down to them or to the sun or the moon or the stars in the sky, 4 and this has been brought to your attention, then you must investigate it thoroughly. If it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done in Israel, 5 take the man or woman who has done this evil deed to your city gate and stone that person to death.

 

Deuteronomy also directs parents to subject their own child to death by group stoning for disobedience:

Deuteronomy 21:18-21 (NIV)

A Rebellious Son

18 If someone has a stubborn and rebellious son who does not obey his father and mother and will not listen to them when they discipline him, 19 his father and mother shall take hold of him and bring him to the elders at the gate of his town. 20 They shall say to the elders, “This son of ours is stubborn and rebellious. He will not obey us. He is a glutton and a drunkard.” 21 Then all the men of his town are to stone him to death. You must purge the evil from among you. All Israel will hear of it and be afraid.

What happened to “You shall not murder” [Exodus 20 (NIV)]?

The whole Book of Deuteronomy can be summarized into two basic concepts: OBEY and DESTROY. It literary DICTATES to Jewish people that they MUST destroy other cultures and people in them without compromise as a fundamental part of worshiping an abstract vision of “God” that was “assigned” to them. And this is openly written in a book in no uncertain terms that has been “disseminated” and taught to people within Western Civilization as “Holy” and a “Word of God” while violently displacing sophisticated cultures that developed philosophy, logic, mathematics, sciences, complex languages, beautiful arts and architecture? How can this even be possible?

By comparison, Koran doesn’t even seem as direct focusing more on a warfare scenario and retaliatory measures rather than cold blooded murder even of your own family and relatives for wanting to subscribe to other beliefs. An extensive list of quotes from Koran on this subject can be found on this website: http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/pages/quran/violence.aspx
There is also a list on Wikipedia: https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Qur%27an_on_infidels

 

What is Satanism?

According to Oxford Dictionary derivation for word SATAN: Hebrew śāṭān, literally ‘adversary’, from śāṭan ‘plot against’.

SATANISM as a term within Judaeo-Christian “tradition” can really apply to just about any form of culture, thought, practice or belief that is different or not in line with what has been prescribed by the authoritarian teachings of the Bible and those who claim to represent it.

A common depiction of the epitome of “satanic activity” is an indulgence in the pleasures of sexual act – the most direct action of the actual force of creation in its efforts to perpetuate the human race.

Ultimately, Satan within “Biblical paradigm” is really a term for the actual Consciousness of Creation manifested through the creation and activity of living forms – collectively known as “nature” – which includes the human form. Also see:

Drinking Blood, Eating Body

While Christians can be quick in labeling something “Satanic,” they themselves worship an act of human sacrifice (the Crucifixion of Christ) and engage in a ritual of mock cannibalism by drinking “the blood of Christ” in the form of wine and eating “the body of Christ” in the form of bread crackers. This is a form of “Satanic inversion” at its finest.

 

Moses – as a Student of Egyptian School of Mind Control

It is questionable whether any of the Biblical stories are true, but if such is the case at least in some way, then it is evident that Moses must have been a student of Egyptian school which evidently was some kind of a testing ground for the “domestication” of humans – developing mind control schemes in order to motivate humans to obey and work for some elite class without a chance of revolt. The invention of “gods,” religious theater, and religious story telling to form a certain view of reality in the minds of target human populations were all tools employed by the Egyptian elites to maintain their positions of power in subdued human societies. Even according to the Bible itself, Moses was a part of Egyptian elite. He never delivered Hebrews out of slavery – he used them as mind controlled troops programmed to invade target territories and obliterate people living there along with their unique cultural constructs to preemptively eliminate any possible “conflicting worldviews” to the religious schemes of the ruling elites in Egypt.

Israel is TWO DAYS WALKING DISTANCE from Egypt. Are people to believe that Jews walked around in circles for 40 years without any contact with their Egyptian “overlords?” It was all an Egyptian project from the very beginning. If any events did occur – they were organized theater to make Jewish people believe whatever it is that the mind control specialists wanted them to believe. Jews probably did walk around in the desert for a long time to induce a state of exhaustion and desperation to make their minds more susceptible to hypnotic programming, but it would certainly not have been for 40 years. Food provisions were probably being kept supplied by Egyptian army – left on the ground at specific locations where Moses would take “his people” and then tell them it came from “God.” After all, this “experimental army” would need to be well fed and in a good physical condition to go invade target territories.

It is very possible that the “self-perpetuating brainwashing program” that was implemented by Egyptian ruling class was only meant to be temporary for the conquest of neighboring territories close to Egypt – hence, the concept of a “messiah” in Jewish religion as a “placeholder” for someone to come in to undo the programming or selectively direct the program in a different direction. The problem is that Egypt itself was invaded and taken over first by Greeks (Alexander the Great) and then by Romans (Augustus) and so there was no one left to go back and implement the “messiah” piece of the program.

Jews ended up on their own as a cultural segment within the emerging Roman Empire (which was morphing out of Roman Republic), keeping the “program” going among themselves as now their persisting cultural construct.

 

Jesus – The Jewish Messiah

It is possible that there was an original, authentic Christianity (Gnostic Christianity?) as a practice of enlightenment and spiritual / psychological liberation that was actually “hijacked” and integrated into (appended to) the Bible in order to take control of the movement and make it subject to the false visions of God and reality established by the Bible itself. Jesus was “re-branded” into being yet another “book character” in the Bible – the “son of God” – and used as a sacrifice for that God. Perhaps the true Jesus, if such even existed, was never meant to be worshiped or given a title of “Lord” turning him into yet another symbolic figure of authority, and in human form which served to validate the status of “sainthood” and “divinity” for other humans.

Maybe, if there was such a man as Jesus, he was a man who understood the psychological entrapment of his people (the Jewish people) and tried to liberate them by utilizing the “messianic” solution and introduce “vedic” insights (which have already been in existence in other cultures for over 1,000 years before the time of Christ – see page SLAVO-VEDIC CULTURE – The Unlocking of Ancient Wisdom) among his people to undo the program of the “Old Testament.” However, the “program” dictates that anyone who tries to “entice” Jewish people out of it must be killed which may have been a problem for the Jewish people living under Roman law that would have considered such action (i.e. murder) a punishable offense – hence, the demand that such a man be executed in line with Roman rules.

[“the Sanskrit word véda “knowledge, wisdom” is derived from the root vid- “to know”. This is reconstructed as being derived from the Proto-Indo-European root *u̯eid-, meaning “see” or “know”” (Wikipedia). It is the same words in modern Russian: ведать (vedat’) which means “to know with wisdom” and видеть (videt’) which means “to see.”]

To undo the program of the Old Testament, Jesus would essentially have to do three things:

  1. Change a concept of God to being a form of “energy” – a force of creation (light, love) that dwells within everyone as opposed to a “remote” man-like authoritarian slave owner.
  2. Change a concept of Self (as applied to everyone else as well) as being a product of that “energy of creation” (the body is your temple – “God” dwells within; all are “children” of “God” – a manifestation of the consciousness of creation; everyone is “equal” before “God” as everyone is a creation of “God”).
  3. Provide a new blueprint for a more civilized attitude and behavior in line with the two concepts above to snap his people out of the “stone to death” mentality. “Love thy neighbor” directed at Jews as a group could be understood as a new direction in attitude – a reversal of the Egyptian military psy-op (psychological operation) of perpetual hate and destruction – to love and respect other people living around Jews despite of differences in culture and believes.

Jesus was trying to deliver his people out of their own “religion,” and it may very well be the case that early Christians were persecuted as practitioners of some enlightened spirituality that liberated human consciousness including from the grips of authoritarian mind control which would have endangered any kind of authoritarian rule, Roman including – hence, Jesus and his movement also viewed as a “danger” to Roman rule. At the time Roman construct of government itself was “morphing” from a Republic to an Empire looking for new ways to “rule over the masses.” And what a better way to end the spread of Christianity as a form of enlightened and liberating spiritual practice then to supplant it with yet another version of an authoritarian religion – a Christian “religion” based on the already existing “program” of Judaism. Hence, the “Old Testament” and the “New Testament” – authoritarian program of mind control #1 designed for a limited group of people, and mind control program #2 that could and has been implemented across many diverse populations. Then Koran represents mind control program #3 catered to human civilizations in the Middle East.

In this view, the books of the New Testament should be suspected as being filled with lies and disinformation about the true character of Jesus and his movement that may have actually existed back in the day. It may be the case that in order to prevent the true teachings from spreading, an alternative story of Jesus was made up and disseminated as part of the Bible. But then again, the whole story may have just been made up in order to include everyone within the domain of the “distant” and judgmental “God” of the Bible but now with a “help” of charismatic “intermediary.”

 

Conclusion

“Love thy neighbor” may have been retained in a Christian religion, but it is still the same concept of a “God” that demands total obedience and obliteration of all alternative thought, beliefs and cultures; and so it is not surprising that the spread of Christianity continued to implement the “program” of the Old Testament by expanding through mass destruction of any previous culture and knowledge replaced with an enforced obedience to the “God of the Bible” – an abstract of a”God” that was designed for a selected group of people on, at least initially, a limited territory “exported” through Christianity to apply to the rest of humanity everywhere.

Matthew 5 (NIV)

The Fulfillment of the Law

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.

So is it “… love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Matthew 5:44) or is it “put them to death” (Deuteronomy 13:9), “put to the sword” (Deuteronomy 13:15) and “stone that person to death” (Deuteronomy 17:5)?

What “World Peace” can we be talking about when nearly half of Earth’s population (see Abrahamic religions) subscribe to a narrow mental abstract of “God” – each branch with their own “flavor” – that demands absolute obedience along with vilification and destruction of any alternative? And Christianity is no exception, for the “love” in a Christian religion is not genuine – it is a subversive form of love – an additional tool in the psychological warfare to subdue large segments of human population to the “God of the Bible” in order to manifest an Egyptian blueprint of government with one “divine ruler” to rule over all. This is why this “love” has not worked out so well in practice throughout Christian history, for it is but a “Trojan Horse” at the gates of consciousness of the “non-believers.”
