THE HUMAN FAILURE
We have spent a lot of time taking about the War between Satan and God though the make up of our souls and how that relates to history and eternity. Soul Wars takes place in the flesh, the battlegrounds of the Natural World.
Romans 7:5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
Sometime history gives us a glimpse into the reality of the Spiritual though the natural world. None other than Hitler himself puts it all in prospective!
"Christianity is a
rebellion against natural law, a protest against nature. Taken to its logical
extreme, Christianity would mean the systematic cultivation of the human
failure.[p. 51]" Hitler's Table Talk, stenographic notes of Hitler's private
conversations [Weidenfeld and Nicolson,
Even the demagogue of the last century, Adolph Hitler, recognized God's effort to overcome the human condition. However, he believed that embracing our human condition would save humanity through survival of the fittest and other "natural laws". Like the other demon of Secular humanism, Stalin, he fought against Christianity and Judaism because these were the "opiate of the people". In other words belief in God keeps them from evolving into the "Super Race". Religion "Cultivated the human failure".
History, however, proves that these God's of human superiority for common good in reality magnified and manifested the tepidity of the true human failure. Millions died and the world was on the brink of destruction as people followed these men into their folly. Christianity, It turns out , is the solution to the human failure not it's champion.
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
SALVATION THROUGH EVOLUTION
History Continues to prove the Human failure. Though Christianity continues to try and civilize man he continually show his failure through Atrocities, terrorism and war. A simple look back to recent and ancient history will tell us that Ortegga is right!
"We have need of history in its entirety, not to fall back into it, but to escape from it." Ortega Y Gasset
I do not have to go over the gory details of the world wars and genocide to prove the human failure. The stacked up bodies, destroyed cities, the orphans,the maimed and tortured all speak for themselves. Indeed, they will declare for all of enternity that the Lucifer principle leads to destruction.
Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the
strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
Mat 7:14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Any focus on the behavior of man will come to one conclusion: There are forces at work within our own biological fabric and environment that together make creation groan in pain and agony. Howard Bloom calls this The LUCIFER PRINCIPLE in his book THE LUCIFER PRINCIPLE.(Surprise!) He puts it this way:
In the process, THE LUCIFER PRINCIPLE contends
that "evil" is a by-product of nature's strategies for creation and
is woven into our most basic biological fabric. This argument echoes a very old
Are all these men and Howard Bloom right. Is "the Lucifer Principle", correct?!
According to Howard Bloom’s naturalist point of view, "Evil" is nothing more than "creation strategy". It is the process of culling out the weak and those who will not "evolve" into the "Super Organism", that ultimately will be life's salvation. Not unlike Hitler’s "Super Race". According to the Lucifer Principle, Hitler's elimination of inferior peoples to build his Third Reich is all part of Mother Nature. Hitler was not some part of a "Dark Force". He was not empowered by Satan. Howard says Lucifer is a Myth.
"....But, in a strange way, Marcion understood the situation better than the more conventional followers of the church, for Lucifer is merely one of the faces of a larger force. Evil is a by-product, a component, of creation. In a world evolving into ever higher forms, hatred, violence, aggression, and war are a part of the evolutionary plan."
"....Death, destruction, and fury do not disturb the Mother of our world; they are merely parts of her plan." From The Lucifer Principle by Howard Bloom
In fact, according to the Lucifer Principle the Tyrants of Terror of History are just the cutting blade of Mother Nature, doing the dirty work. The Millions that die, the cities that are destroyed, the rape and torture are just the natural results of Evolution as we, the human world, is moved to "greater heights of organization, intricacy, and power."
"The nature scientists uncover has crafted our viler impulses into us: in fact, these impulses are a part of the process she uses to create. Lucifer is the dark side of cosmic fecundity, the cutting blade of the sculptor's knife. Nature does not abhor evil; she embraces it. With it she moved the human world to greater heights of organization, intricacy, and power." From The Lucifer Principle by Howard Bloom
The Lucifer Principle as define by Howard Bloom is the dark side of Evolution. It is Survival of the fittest at it’s ugliest. Our sexuality, instinct, hungers, and hormones govern the behavior of individuals, the Super Organisms of those individuals and even their Neuron Net. This behavior forms natural laws. Many of these Natural Laws such as "pecking order", "dominant male", "gene pool survival " and "self preservation" are what generate "evil" behavior. There is no unseen force according to the Lucifer principle. Satan or Lucifer is a myth.
According to the Lucifer Principle, these natural laws drive us into ever increasing cycles of destruction. The Hitler of prehistoric man could only do little damage with sticks and stones. As mankind has developed into ever increasing organized states of society(super organisms) they acquire ever greater powers of destruction. The Osamas and Kahns of history used arrows to kill hundreds, guns to kill thousands and bombs to kill millions. Today these God's of Terror have nuclear, biological and chemical weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) . The natural prediction then of the Lucifer principle is the extinction of man, the final cycle, evolutionary Armageddon.
According to Howard Bloom's theory, the only hope to escape evolutionary Armageddon is that the Lucifer principle will prod us into a greater evolutionary state. (Sometime before we destroy each other, I hope) We will then have the technology to leave this planet or somehow evolve past the Lucifer Principle.
Howard indeed has great faith! However, it is insane to do the same thing over and over again and expect different results. The human failure has brought humanity to the edge of destruction several times already this century. In fact, we live under that sword every day even now. The fact is that without the love and interference of God, the human failure would have destroyed mankind already.
SALVATION THROUGH JESUS
However, when we look at the Natural Laws and History from a spiritual point of view we come to a different conclusion.
Gen And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
The Natural laws were given to man to be able to have dominion over the earth. Howard notes that The Natural Laws are powerful for organization, intricacy, and power. As the bible say these forces in a proper soul that stays in the "image" of God can be use for Good. These Laws were given him to have dominion over the earth. Now this was good. In fact God says it was very good. (Gen 1:31)
Message of the Garden of Eden is clearly that paradise is humanity operating in harmony with God. When the Natural Laws are under God's control they are a beautiful force of creation, nuturing and traquility. Humanity was intended to be the caretakers of Gods Creation.
Sadly it did not stay that way. Lucifer, not Mother Nature, unleashed our viler impulses into us by separating us from the love and power of God. How exactly that happen will always be a mystery and a subject of faith. Nevertheless, Lucifer enslaved humanity by showing us how to be "like God", destroying, abusing and using our environment, each other and nature to become "gods" of the Earth. We pick up the story in Gen 3:
Gen 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
The resulting seperation between us and the love of God is clear in the following verses:
Gen 3:14 And the LORD God said
unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all
cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and
dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:
Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Gen 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
There is ample evidence, in archeology, genealogy and philosophy and ancient literature that Lucifer and the fallen angles enslave humanity into totalitarian empires of death, destruction, and debauchery. These empires where characterized by violence, human sacrifice, vile sexual practices and possibly genetic and biological warfare. These are Howard's and Hitler's "Natural laws" cultivated to their worse effect.Indeed,there came a time when God had to destroy these civilizations in order to teach humanity a better way.
Humanity still suffers with the governments, sexual practices, violence and genetic and biological warfare of those by gone days. The Governments and people who embrace Nazism, Jihads, Crusades, mass murder and genocide are modeled after these Empires of the fallen ones. Even many of the diseases we suffer with today are results of genetic and biological wars of the true Hell's Angels.
[**For More information see the Book. Intelligent Design Origins of Human Destiny. available @ http://www.truthwaylife.com or most online book stores]
This is how the Lucifer principle that Howard writes about was born. Bible scholars called this the fall of Man. Man now knowing "evil" had to be separated from the presence of God.(v22,23) Through this process man and beast could no longer handle the laws of Nature for they no longer had the "knowledge" of God.(v9) The bible calls it the flesh or carnal man. He had to be evicted from the Garden of Eden. The flesh or carnal man is too easily tempted and too easy prey to the evil one. That "Serpent that will be crushed by the seed of the woman.(v15)" As the bible says, the flesh is indeed weak.
Mark Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
God's love, however, is not so easily defeated. Lucifer may have won one battle but not the war. God can even use the Lucifer himself to effect his ultimate Goal. Clearly, archeology and geology verify the Great Flood that destroyed the evil civilizations in order for God to show humanity the righteous way. With great sacrifice God gave us the Law and his Son that we might have victory over the human failure, the Lucifer Principle. Despite all that Lucifer can do, history will declare for all eternity that God's ways are the right ways and the best ways. This is the victory of God. This is what make the Devil tremble!
James Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble
Today, as Howard notes creation does indeed groan under the cutting blade of Lucifer's knife. This is well recognized by Paul. God also recognizes the benefits of such as that he knows that Lucifer's knife will reveal the Glory of God in US! This is a key! A person must learn from pain and suffering that God's ways are right! God uses the Lucifer Principle to teach us to overcome the natural laws for Good and not evil. God uses the Lucifer Principle to teach us to love God's ways and use the natural laws wisely to the glory of God almighty. This is were Howard Bloom is wrong. Without the knowledge of Gods ways and His spirit to lead us in them the Lucifer principle leads only to death and destruction.
Rom For I reckon that the sufferings of this present
time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in
Rom For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
Rom For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
Rom Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.
Rom For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
Rom 8:23 And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
So Paul and the bible, observing the same forces of nature as Howard comes to a different conclusion. He concludes that the creature is in bondage (v21) due to vanity(v20) and that God is using this knife in the hands of Satan to reveal the glory of God(v18) in the sons of God(v19) who are first fruits (v23) i.e. the Christians. The very same that Hitler ,Stalin and Osama persecuted.
The bible comes to a very different conclusion than Howard Bloom for the end of the Lucifer principle. While Howard hypes that we will naturally evolve like butterflies into illuminated souls the bible proclaims that we will throw the earth into great tribulation and destroy ourselves, except that God interferes with judgment. Thus the memory Lucifer and his principle (and it's followers) will rise up for all eternity like the smoke unto the heavens.
WHICH SALVATION IS RIGHT?
However, how can we tell who is right, Howard our Paul? Is Lucifer's knife a natural intended force of Mother Nature or is God using Satan to his own Glory. This is no small matter. This is no small subject. The ramification is horrific!
If Howard's Lucifer principle is right and "....Death, destruction, and fury do not disturb the Mother of our world; they are merely parts of her plan.". Then Hitler's Nazism, Stalin's communism and O'sama Bin Laden 3rd Jihad are but Nature's way of recycling humanity. We are then the most pitiful of creatures as that we strive for the redemption of our bodies and do good but are doomed to ever greater cycles of destruction. The more we advance the greater will be the fall. Until someday, some "alpha" male or renegade super organism or malcontent on the pecking order will use nuclear or biological or chemical super technology to destroy us all or enslave us all. One can only wonder why that hasn't happen already!
1Corinthians If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at
Under Howard's Lucifer principle there is little hope. Mankind is far to far behind the technological curve to escape to the heavens and far to in front the technological curve not to destroy himself. Mankind is condemned to live, in the macro, under increasing pains of demagogue's terrorist hoard's killing, raping and destroying as they dethrone one another off the pecking order. In the micro, we are condemned to deal with withering bodies, disease, natural disasters and accidents that are simply Mother Nature's way of having her way with us.
I cannot help but be reminded of a Star trek episode where an "alien force" entered the enterprise ship. The force had the capability to manipulate the environment and situation. It brought the enterprise's hated archenemy the "Clingons" onto the ship. Fierce and emotional battle was surly ensued as they began killing each other. The force even brought them back to life so they could do it all over again. Kurt and company discovered that the force feed off the emotion and violence and pain and agony of the struggle. This force just got brighter and brighter. The solution, of course, was that all had to lie down their arms and become friends and peacemakers to evict the Force.
In Howard's Lucifer principle there is no force, of course. Evil is just all part of nature. The super organism cannot overcome its nature. We therefore, as parts of the super organism, are condemned to Howard's Hell. Pretty much, without any hope.
Ephesians 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Nevertheless, there is Hope. Even for Howard! The force Howard call myths in the beginning of his book are real and feeding off our misery like in the Star Trek episode. Howard Narrow minded study cause him to focus only on the natural law and he does not even see the history and evidence of another law present which reveals the greater picture. Again, like Kirk in the Star Trek episode, those who do not recognize that fact are condemned to Howard's Hell.
Lucifer is quite real. No one debates that he uses the natural laws of this existence to his advantage. Those natural laws that Howard says "moved the human world to greater heights of organization, intricacy, and power " were designed for that purpose. There is nothing evil about them in a perfectly capable people. However, something happen and we are no longer able to control those tremendous forces. Paul writes.
Rom For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am
carnal, sold under sin.
Rom For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do
Rom If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.
Rom Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
Rom For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
Rom For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
Rom Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
Rom I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
Rom For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
Rom But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
Rom O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
Rom I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
As Hitler observed Christianity is dead set against the Lucifer principle. Those natural laws of survival, of procreation and of sexuality will drive a man wretched (v24) He may delight to do well with those laws (v22) but Sin dewlleth within and he does that which he hates (v19). If a man let the Lucifer principle go unchecked he has the mind set of Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin or Osama bin Laden. It is this other Law (v23) that seeks to keep the Lucifer Principle in check that Howard seems to ignore. More to the point, Howard is blinded to the forces that promote and deter this Lucifer principle in us. He calls this unseen world that prods man to great wickedness or great good a Myth.
Howard himself is a great example of the Evil ones power. He made his fame and millions promoting Lucifer's music that fights against the laws of God. Music that promotes Lucifer's lies and excites the Lucifer principle against the laws of God in our mind. It is no wonder that Howard does not want Lucifer to be real. If Lucifer is real then Howard is nothing more that a puppet or a pimp motivated by greed and glory!.
I mean no disrespect to Howard Bloom. His book is a credit to both him in his new found profession as a natural scientist. Indeed, there have been many intelligent men deceived into believing evolution and science as their creator and God. They are experts at observing the obvious natural order of things but are clueless to explain the great movement of God. Christianity is a conundrum to them as that it is founded on peace, love and all that is against the Lucifer principle. They refuse to recognize the one big difference between man and animal. Animals do not bury their dead or worship God or think upon eternity. Animals have no knowlege of Evil or Good. Animals cannot overcome the Lucifer principle. Animals are bound to their instincts, hungers and hormones.
Joh Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
This concept is what Howard seems to miss. After
Lucifer crafted our viler impulses into us through the Fall of Man he continues
to incite them through Lies and half truths. While the Lucifer principle does
indeed drive the evil in man it is not solely responsible for the magnitude of
it's success. Hitler and his kind are indeed driven by greed, power and hatred.
However, the inspiration, the intelligence, the lies, and spirit with which
they carry it out are not theirs. They simple pass these powerful forces
through their propaganda, music, parties, threats and other appeals to our
viler impulses. These demonic Terrorists are far from being "
Mark And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts.
Matthew But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
Howard should know well from his previous career that there are truths, lies, philosophies, propaganda, music and lyrics and environments that promote the Lucifer principle. These techniques, called HYPE today, are used to develop temptation, tragedies, environment and test that can steal and drown out the word of God. This hype appeals to our viler impulses (v15). This type of hype can harden the hearts of men so the word goes unheeded or they chock out it's life. The idea's, the spirit and inspiration of these techniques or forces are not founded on the basic individual need for survival or hormones or hunger. They even go beyond these needs for the "Super Organism" or the "Neuron Net" of society. These temptations or test come from the evil one who hates the things of God and delights in those of men(v23). These techniques are the means to control the "Super Organism" or the "Neuron Net" to produce the Human Failure both in the micro and macro levels of society.
The human failure cannot simply be explained away by Howard’s Lucifer
Principle. The human failure is driven by forces beyond the Howard’s Lucifer
Principle. The real Lucifer Principle goes beyond the flesh. Howard’s
Principle, in the macro, cannot explain the magnitude and inspiration of the
Terror Gods. The utter ruthlessness and stone heart of Ganges Kahn, the
hypnotic speech and diabolical desires of Hitler, and the insidious guile and
cowardliness of Osama, was not just the Lucifer principle of natural science at
work. Most of these "
Howard would simply call them animals. I prefer to call them Monsters, for no animal can be so hell bent on the conquest and destruction of God's word and ways. It is not a coincidence that all these tyrants of terror have the feverish heart to destroy the people of God and to conquer the World. It is not a coincidence that the screams and plea's of their innocent victims fall on deaf ears. No, the evil one, Lucifer prepares them that way through HYPE and other techniques.
The Lucifer Principle also cannot explain the utter depravity of man in the micro. A counselor I know called in the parents of a 14 year girl who was arrested for having sex with an 11 year old boy. The father comes in with an upside-down cross on the forehead. "His hair was greasy and he hadn't taken a bath forever" relates the counselor. He interrupts the conversation between the mother and the counselor telling his wife "she has no opinion and to shut up". After cursing out the counselor he proceeds with a scourge of four letter words to be proud of his daughter who has been sexually active since the age of eight. This incident echo's the history of Charles Manson whose satanic powers ruined the life of many young women and killed Sharon Tate. The news continues to be full of serial rape and murders with no remorse and an utter love for carnage and suffering. You find none of this in the animal kingdom. They do not kill sadistically. They kill efficiently and usually only to eat. Animals rarely kill their own and certainly show not pleasure in it. This is far beyond the Lucifer principle. This is Lucifer himself working through HYPE and other techniques on what the bible calls “The Flesh”.
Why do Howard and many such scientists and taught men support such lies, philosophies, propaganda, music and lyrics and environments that promote the Lucifer principle? Money, power and greed certainly play their part. However, their failure to overcome the Lucifer principle and become puppets to Lucifer himself is because they fail to know or even be thankful to God. Lucifer’s darkness then makes their hearts foolish.
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they
knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain
in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Naturalist and Evolutionist like Howard do error because the fail to see the handiwork of God. They change the glory of God into theory more compatible with corruptible man using birds and four footed beasts and promote it as their creator. This is easy to do when you assume there is no God. They presuppose that God does not exist and therefore they miss the clues and movements of God. The natural laws driving the development of the "super organism", ie the plant and animal kingdom, are not so much the question of survival as they are genetics. Howard seems to forget that organs and specialized cells and membranes develop that way because of the Genetic code. This code is far too complex to be answer by simple observation of ameba's and biology. Super Computer today cannot even begin to assimilate and hold the amount of information held in DNA of even the simplest of Organism.
People like Howard who assumes there is no God even miss the "neuron nets" that God has formed against the Lucifer principle. Christian Organization and Godly movements of all kinds can be observed today working diligently against the Lucifer principle. If Lucifer and therefore God are not real then where did this self-sacrificing, selfless acts of charity come from?
Some natural scientists would argue that such good behavior is simply hormone drive desire to protect the super organism for the "greater Good". They point out that mothers of most animal species will sacrifice themselves for their young. They argue that as white blood cells are programmed to sacrifice themselves for the "greater Good" of the body. Such they claim were the firemen who courageously died in the burning towers of 9/11.
"For the Greater Good" has been the rally cry of secular humanism since the beginning. Hitler's Storm troopers and SS men carried off the Jews under such pretense. I am sure that a least some of the 9/11 terrorist believed they were dying for the Greater Good of Islam. "For the greater Good" is a natural law well established and intended of God. However, this law can be used for Good or Bad depending on the inspiration.
What the natural scientist doesn’t even address the fact of who programmed the white cells or the courageous firemen of 911? A Mother bear will kill even when there is no real threat to her young because see in reacting to instinct, the programming God gave her. These Natural laws cannot speak where the programming came from. It cannot account for the motivation of the firemen of 911 or missionaries and nurses who acts are motivated by God's love. God’s love is the true programming of this “Natural Law”.
Joh Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
It is important that we recognize true love of true Good. People who follow true love sacrifice only themselves and only then at the hands of Evil. This is the mark of a true Martyr. They die upholding the love of God and his righteousness and not for the "Greater Good". Their heads may roll or their bodies’ burn but the very perpetrators of their death declare themselves to be evil and the Martyr to be Good. Compare this to those that died while killing innocent school children and women in Beslan Russia or the Twin Towers in New York. May the perpetrators of Lucifer Principal that warp such young men and women's minds against the principle of God be cursed, Amen.
I say this so strongly because the fireman that
died in the twin towers, policeman and the saints are thinking rational being.
They are not programmed like mother bears or white blood cells. To suppose that
such behavior of man is due to the ancestral and biological evolution of his
DNA in accordance with the survival of the fittest and other natural laws is the
look at the sophisticated computer games of today and says they are accidental
works of nature. It's like watching the game and saying that the destruction
and death is a result of accidental programming. We would laugh, as I'm sure
God does, at such conclusions. I again quote Rom
themselves to be wise, they became fools,” Such fools that they ignore or turn a blind
eye to the
Eph For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
A person must see beyond the natural and recognize that the person behind the joystick is using sophisticated intelligence driven software to such evil ends. Hype and other such techniques serve Lucifer well. They create governments, schools of thought, media powerhouses and even churches and religions of man that promote the Lucifer principle against the words of God. In fact you can observe two Spirits at work in organization today. Those that use the forces of truths, lies, philosophies, propaganda, music and lyrics and environments to promote the Lucifer principle and those that use these forces to overcome the Lucifer Principle. Hitler used the Natural Laws and the Occult to foster his vile deeds. Kahn used the violence and plunder to fuel his demonic terror. Even religion can be used to promote the Lucifer principle. False religions such Cults, Islam and Aboriginal religions use these forces to develop "pecking Orders" and "super organism" and "Neuron nets" that implement the Lucifer principle too it's most ugly outcome. Sept 11, 2001 saw the most glaring of such out breaks. Waco and Gahanna are other recent disastrous example of using God's word to promote the Lucifer principle.
On a soul-by-soul basis you can also see the mark of Lucifer. Test-by-test, temptation-by-temptation and tragedy-by-tragedy how we react to these things determine our behavior. Will we reject the things of God and react in accordance with the Lucifer principle or will we embrace the force of God and overcome the Lucifer principle. The tests, temptation and tragedies are not trivial. They carry real emotion and strain against our souls. Lucifer's Lies, music and propaganda are also powerful. However, the Truth, the music and the word of God are more powerful. Therefore, it is how we react that is of most impertinence. How we react is a measure of our faith. Will we use the word and truth and spirit of God against the Lucifer principle or will we conform to lies, propaganda and temptations of Lucifer.
Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
This is why Faith is so important. Without Faith it is impossible to please God and escape the Lucifer principle. To put it another way; without love and trust in God it is impossible not to react for our own survival, hormones and appetites. Life is stage of temptation, tragedies and test brought on by the aforementioned forces being inspired by the Spiritual realm. The more we lose these test, temptation and tragedies the more we become like Hitler and ultimately like Satan himself. We end up loving and adopting the Lucifer principle.
Romans 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
1John 2:13 I write unto you,
fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto
you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you,
little children, because ye have known the Father.
1John 2:14 I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one.
Mankind, on the other hand, can overcome the Lucifer Principle through Jesus Christ. We were made in the image of God and do not have to fall victim to his instinct, hungers, and hormones. In fact, though the Law, prophets, and religions God fights against the barbarism and animal behavior in us though civilization, culture and government. This is part of story of history as God has lead us though the Ganges Kahns, Napoleons, Hitlers and Stalins of the world. God is the reason we are not under the "pecking order" of these demagogues. God fights against the forces of Satan. If I could only take Howard to some of the church meeting, charity drives, missions that I have had the privilege to work in maybe he would see the "super organism" of Jesus Christ fighting battle by battle, person by person, the Lucifer principle.
Gal But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy,
peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Gal Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Gal And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
Gal If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit
This Spirit is the Great Gift of God. The Spirit, with which we can use to fight the Lucifer principle, is the real hope of humanity. Those that walk in the spirit are the sons of God and are those through whom the Glory of God is revealed. Do you Remember ROMAN 8:18-23? If you look for the work of the Spirit and the fruits of the Spirit you begin to see the whole picture. You see the hope of Humanity.
SALVATION NOT OF THIS WORLD
"How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! ...For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my stars above the stars of God.... I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High."
Finally, God himself, long ago, revealed the presence of Lucifer, a.k.a. Satan, the Lucifer principle and his effort and love to fix the human failure. Over 100 times does the bible write about Lucifer (Satan or the Devil). Howard himself quotes the above passage and in essence declares God a liar. This is mighty dangerous and deadly territory as the already mentioned god's of Terror have demonstrated in history. Let us not repeat or give foothold to the enemy by casting such doubt on the real hope of humanity, Jesus Christ. Let us not wait for humanity to evolve into the Super Race. That would be foolish and dangerous. Without Jesus Christ there indeed is no hope!
I say this not only because the bible says it but also because the bible and Howard agree on one thing. The Lucifer principle and it's ever increasing cycles of destruction will eventually make the earth into a living Hell. God declares in revelation that His cup of wrath will overflow and he will allow for the destruction of those sold out to the Lucifer principle. Humanity will allow for the antichrist, the final epidemic of the Lucifer principle, to rule and there will be none that significantly oppose him. In essence the world will claim Lucifer's agent to be God.
The hellish nature of earth and man at that time will prove beyond a doubt that the evolution of Man into a "super race" is not the way. History will have proven that the ways of Lucifer and the Lucifer principle, definitively produce little Hitler and his fellow tyrants of terror. Indeed, the Lucifer Principle will be proved to be the definitive degradation of man into demons of Lucifer. They will be worthy only of destruction. They will truly be part of the "Human failure". The chaff will have to be separated from the wheat and burned up. What separates the wheat from the chaff is our faith in God, Jesus the Christ. However, that's a whole another story.

Joh 3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto
thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the
kingdom of God.
Joh 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Joh 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
The bottom line is that Howard's Lucifer
principle is half-right. Unfortunately, he does not and cannot see the other
half. His book the Lucifer Principle does well to describe that flesh is flesh
(v6) and cannot enter or even see the

As I said before, how you react to theory is all that matters. This is because how you react will be according to the faith in your heart. Salvation and kingdom of God are only available through faith. It is the only way to ultimately escape the Lucifer principle. God is not a fool. For the very reasons the Lucifer principle points out God says that no Flesh shall inherit the kingdom of God. That is why your salvation is so important.
