Alice Bailey wrote that the revolt of the angels against God was part of “the divine plan of evolution,” for by it the fallen angels “descended from their sinless and free state of existence in order to develop full divine awareness on earth,” [Alice Bailey, The Externalization of the Hierarchy (New York: Lucis Publishing Company, 1957), p. 118]
Evolution of The CONscience
But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels [and] in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward. Jeremiah 7:24
The Con is on, Evolution is the man made idea that he is progressing forward. Their is not one scientific fact that evolution is true. Not one! I have much to say on the science end of it, but as New Age high priestess Alice Bailey who advanced the work of the New Age agenda greatly, stated above is that evolution is the divine (demonic) plan given by the angels that revolted against God. She admits that they are fallen angels. To the discerning soul that is contact with spirits indeed, but they are set on destroying mankind by baiting the hook with illumination that leads to damnation. The ultimate folly that man thinks he is progressing forward in evolution when the word of God says evil men will wax worse and worse.
The Ego & The Christ Conscience
Watch this short video clip of whom New Agers call master Tolles on Evolution of Conscience. We will trace this divine plan and expose the author of all evolution. It wasn’t Darwin! Evolution is teaching that creation and man for that matter is moving forward, but the bible teaches that man is getting worse. Since evolution, mankind has seen more people murdered in the last 100 years than all of history combined! When corrupt men begin to think they are little gods, then it will be chaos as they all control their little universes. It is patently false and absurd, how hell must snicker at this folly.
Eckhart Tolles on Evolution of Conscience
Homo Noeticus & Evolution: Promoting a Lie
Tolle’s says in this video “that we are one manifestation of the evolution of consciousness”. I want to connect some dots for you on what others have already said even giving it a scientific name. We are today classified as Homo sapiens, the upright biped who made fire, but New Agers see Homo Noeticus is the next step in evolution of man. That evolution according to angelic (demonic spirits) is promoting EVOLUTION of man and his God given conscience. See article NeoCon.
Couple that idea with the notion of Natural Selection and it is not a far stretch for the elite to select who lives and who dies in our world. For starters how about those who oppose the Mark or the number of his name.
It is also important to note here that this “power” and I quote:
“Awareness is the power that is concealed within the present moment…The ultimate purpose of human existence, which is to say, your purpose, is to bring that power into this world” pg.78 of Tolles from his book A New Earth.
That power and it is real don’t get me wrong, coupled with the myth of evolution is nothing more than spirit entities (demons) who are far superior than man in intellect sucker the unwitting with fanciful ideas of man is evolving in his mind. This is why New Agers like Alice Bailey say that fallen angels are the ones pushing evolution as the end time deception that will culminate in legions taking alligence to Lucifer. (Satan that old Serpent) They are very busy promoting this by lying to the masses that we can evolve into supermen, mutants, with superior mind powers like Neo in the Matrix.
It is the lie that man is and I will quote…
“We are entering a new stage of human evolution, and many of us are hung suspended. We’re not yet Homo noeticus, but neither are we “just” the old energy and patterns of Homo sapiens. Homo noeticus is the next step on the evolutionary ladder which is characterized by extra-sensory perceptions (beyond the 5 senses)–including telepathy–as well as a change in psychological and physical chemistry. We are becoming multi-dimensional–or, at least, realizing our multi-dimensionality–and discoveries in Quantum physics is confirming that parallel universes and multiple realities are probable. Many are waking up to this new identity, realizing that choices beget consequences, the devil didn’t make me do it, and God isn’t going to save our butt–or planet– like some deus ex machina from the sky. Is the Divine in control? Absolutely. Yet, we forget that humans are one expression of the Divine on Earth and as God/Goddesses’ hands, feet, and mouth, we must work in partnership with the Divine. We are given free will, and that free will entails the ability to make choices with dire consequences–both personally and globally.”
What we are actually seeing here is the deception of plain old fashioned demon possession being sold as science. Frontier science it has been said is the devils play ground. Over and over I have read New Age sources saying that it is critical to marry their pagan beliefs to science. Hence it would not appear to the average consumer as something from the occult. Even more troubling is within the Emergent Church movement you have meditation and centering prayer which is designed to open ones mind to the spirit.
Evolution and a Quantum Leap
Where is it going as a student of prophecy we wonder. Evolution of conscience is a key point for evolutionist as they neo-darwinsism has no answer for the conscience. Science cannot account for it. What has been brewing over the last 100 or so years since the fossil record as Darwin noted has not provided the “missing links” needed to confirm his humanistic folly. Within a generation of the Darwinian theory cropped up was this idea of a “quantum leap in evolution”. Evolution needed help since their is no evidence to show any transition forms of any kind. Nada!
The next step on the demonic stairway to heaven is the idea that we are progressing on the evolutionary scale and the we need to have a quantum leap in our evolution of conscience that we are divine. Since science with the law of entropy shows that every thing is breaking or winding down. Not improving as evolution would tell us. We need to know that we are not gods in our ultimate hierarchy of self actualization. “I Am”, many New Agers claim. Christ consciousness, is the set forth as the Jesus model was an evolved master who realized he was a god and so can you if you follow the path of enlightenment. This all harkens back to the original lie in the garden of Eden as the serpent spewed. “ye shall be like gods”. Genesis 3
It is the new NEO CON- Demonically channeled plans from hell bound participants in what very well could be the “strong delusion” the Lord will pour out on the world after the Rapture of the church. This is already far more popular in NA circles than you may believe in deed. This concept of a superman with ESP and highly evolved consciousness is promoted in the blockbuster movie “The Matrix”.
The lead character is “Neo” taken from the concept (lie) that he needed to wake up to the reality that he was a prisoner to the machine the “Architect” (aka God). By plugging into that knowledge they could evolve into what his potential was. He is a prototype of the Antichrist who if you recall at the end of the first movie after his resurrection calls the Architect and tells him “I am going to show them a world without You (God)” and does the superman thing. Neo Con, makes for good screen action, but such is the spirit of antichrist whom Neo represents as the saviour of mankind. It is a Gnostic inversion of the truth.
Neo a Prototype of Antichrist
As a Christian I have wondered what could the coming antichrist say that would make sense of the greatest event on the prophetic calendar, The Rapture of the Church… I will attempt to show that since New Agers went public in 1975 with “The Plan”. The spirits (demons) they are channeling with their ascended wisdom (evolution) is a plan or the idea set forth to account for the millions of Christians who will in a moment or the twinkling of the eye, disappear! The rest the coming anti christ will seek to crush as millions realize what is about to unfold on the world in The Great Tribulation scenario.
I think that one reasonable answer is the conditioning of the minds to accept the coming delusion that God will send on those who have not received the truth as outlined in 2 Thessalonians 2 Much of what is taught in New Age circles is that man is evolving, and all that implies is moving forward by dare I say, by Natural Selection. The cosmic consciousness will select those who are evolving and coming to godhood, and take out that old system of religious thought out. Literally out. It would be a global Columbine massacre. I have many quotes from New Agers since going public.
It must be said that the NA agenda has an absorption of all that is spiritual except the idea of monotheism as found in Christianity, Judaism, and the Moslem faiths. That is the core problem with them. The idea that their is only ONE god, no they believe that we are all gods and we just need to wake up to that. The idea is called many things, but the path to enlightenment is heavily used. They feel that this is what is holding us back from evolving and we must evolve or die.
Before I get into a host of quotes let’s look at what the God of the bible has to say to the prince of the power of the air and those who want to become gods as found in Ezekiel 28. I will make some comments in the text in orange as relating to New Age thought.
The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying, Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart [is] lifted up, and thou hast said, I [am] a God, I sit [in] the seat of God,
The Lord is speaking to a local situation at the time of the writing. The text I believe as shown in verse 13 shows the application goes to the spirits behind the scene. Note is verse 13 that the God speaks to the King of Tyrus as the anointed cherub that was in the garden of Eden. That was the serpent that ole devil. Note here in the first verse is the “Prince”‘…Princes are sons of Kings. This prince of Tyrus is the being judged for the same thing that the serpent sold Eve in the garden as “ye shall be gods.”
in the midst of the seas; yet thou [art] a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:
In the midst of the seas sounds like a reference to the beast that rises out of the sea possibly, in that this snapshot also shows as the Antichrist will claim that he is god. Daniel 9:27 11:36, Revelation 13.
Behold, thou [art] wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee:
This person will indeed be wise, but that wisdom will be corrupted. The old saying is that in every lie is a nugget of truth holds here. This person will be wiser than Daniel! The antichrist will indeed be very shrewd, very!
With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:
By his understanding of world economies with Satanic power this person will accumulate massive riches and thus have unparalleled influence in the world scene. He will appear as the ultimate answer man. A superman for fallen economies who will implement the Mark of the Beast and further his agenda.
By thy great wisdom [and] by thy traffick hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:
Pride goeth before a fall. This kind of pride is self willed and self gratifying. Satanic.
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God;
This pride now swells to the point this person actually believes they are god’s!
Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.
God will judge this man known as the Antichrist: The superman for the human race and shall die a gruesome death.
They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of [them that are] slain in the midst of the seas.
God will bring this future superman down to Hell as God mocks this persons claim to be the god of gods as New Agers promote.
Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I [am] God? but thou [shalt be] a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
God actually mocks this individual here by slaying him. The arrogance that teachers like New Age teacher Tolles “That their is no death” is complete foolishness. This thinking has been around for a long time. My question is if all these ascended masters and little wanna be gods are god. Why do you die. Life is not a video game. No replay, no purging of bad Karma.
This judgement follows the antichrist spirit to the source in vs.12-19 shows it is none other than the father of lies who has corrupted his wisdom and defiled himself. The source of this lie is Satan himself. The father of lies. Read on.
Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
God gives us the source of the angelic wisdom that has entered into rebellion in the heavens. Sounds a bit like what the angels that Alice Bailey spoke with, hmmm. Demons!
Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone [was] thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
God speaks to the King of Tyrus, but says that he was in Eden the garden of God. Only four beings are recorded being in the garden of Eden. Adam & Eve, Satan, and God. This text pierces the present day this was penned to the ancient source of this conflict.
Thou [art] the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee [so]: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
God further opens this picture to indicate this demonic power that fills the antichrist is from Lucifer the anointed cherub. Very powerful and corrupted wisdom, but never the less wiser than man.
Thou [wast] perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.
God shows that Lucifer was perfect in his ways as the light bearer (Isaiah 14), but falls when he wants to become like God and become a fallen one Satan, which means slanderer.
By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.
Lucifer is the serpent liar of the garden of Eden. He truly is wise, but he uses that wisdom in perversion of truth to draw people away by making merchandise of all kinds of false belief systems. Ever notice how all these so called metaphysical teachings come with neat packages and courses that cost many many dollars for the people pushing this stuff.
Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.
Lucifer as an angel of light deceives multitudes by appearing as an angel of light. This is the same for Islam, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, Mary apparitions and countless other lies had their start by lying spirits.
It says in 1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that [spirit] of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
I saw in a dream hell and those who where deceived where in a lake of fire, some up to their ankles, some waste high struggling and screaming for relief, but their was none. Then I saw those who did the devils work who where burning on the inside like coals. I could see their organs burning and the blinding expression of torment. The stakes could not be higher! Lucifer that fallen one has brought the lie that man is evolving into a god is taking countless millions to hell. You need to know that Jesus took our sin tasted death and went to hell on our behalf so we would not have to. That is love! That serpent of perverse wisdom is the old devil who bates the hook of hell with many enticements.
All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never [shalt] thou [be] any more
New Ager Quotes on Evolution
The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) was co-founded in 1973 by former astronaut Edgar Mitchell and industrialist Paul N. Temple to encourage and conduct research and education programs on mind-body relationships for the purpose of expanding “human possibility by investigating aspects of reality—mind, consciousness, and spirit.” Institute programs include research in what they call “extended human capacities,” “integral health and healing,” and “emerging worldviews”. This includes research into spiritual energy, meditation, consciousness, alternative healing, spirituality, human potential, psychic abilities and life after death, among others.
This author is an unabashed pre trib rapture view. I have much to say on that subject soon. However I do see a lie on the horizon and what I think maybe “The Lie” that will be perpetrated by Satan when the Antichrist is revealed. The Apostle Paul reminds the church at Thessalonica that while he was there (for only 2 weeks) he taught them the doctrine of the rapture (harpazo), and reminds them as some where teaching that the day of the Lord was at hand.
[Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 2Th 2 vs.9-11
That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive...Ephesians 4:14
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. Romans 1:25
I want to go slowly and I have loaded up this article with links from New Age sources, and other ministries. In the eons of time, Satan from the curse of the garden has been at war with God. God declared it not the serpent. The divine plan of evolution is found in Genesis 3
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Ye shall be as gods… I’ll say it again. It is the oldest lie and the original lie, that man is divine and that we just need to know that we are divine. At the heart of all New Age doctrine though there be many varieties and flavor of the month, it is that we need to know that we are divine. This hoax is usually sold to the masses in a myriad of books, by the Dali Lama, Masters, Gurus, Oprah, and always needs to be purchased. It is sold as hidden wisdom. This hidden wisdom which has enough truth to bait the unsuspecting customer into a snare through coveting which is idolatry. That also is a lie. One form is Gnosticism, which is hidden knowledge.
a prominent heretical movement of the 2nd-century Christian Church, partly of pre-Christian origin. Gnostic doctrine taught that the world was created and ruled by a lesser divinity, the demiurge, and that Christ was an emissary of the remote supreme divine being, esoteric knowledge (gnosis) of whom enabled the redemption of the human spirit.
Excerpt By Pastor Joe Schimmel
Purposeful deception is needed among leading Satanist to enslave those who they recruit as unscrupulous and unsuspecting pawns who feel more comfortable believing Satan is a symbol for force. Few Satanists realize the evil intentions among the inner core of Satanists and how they view lower initiates as mere puppets to be used and later discarded…
Sadly, while the leaders among Satanists realize that Satan is for real, many who swell the ranks of their churches have been duped into believing that they are in some nature religion. They are taught that either a real Satan does not exist or that hell will not be all that hot. This of coarse is sheer non-sense! Anton LaVey himself was severely deceived as he stated in his Satanic Bible that he would reign with Satan in hell. Anton now realizes he was the most deceived of all. The Scriptures are clear that Hell was created as a place of torment for Satan and his angels. (Matt 25:40-43) Moreover God’s Word declares that Satan will be stripped of his power and rendered “weak” and “covered with worms”. Satan will be rendered one of the weakest and most pathetic beings is the universe, an object of ridicule and scorn by those who were deceived by him. Those who have been deceived by him will marvel that this once powerful fallen angel has been rendered powerless and will mock him as a “carcass trodden under foot” in their torment. (Isaiah 14:9-19) So even leaders in the church of Satan who are deceiving their initiates are themselves deceived, believing that they will have some place of power in Hell. As the apostle Paul prophesied:
“Evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.” (2 Timothy 3:13) Good Fight Ministries – Truth About Satanic Cults
The Plan for the New Age
According to some of the major architects of the New Age movement, this “Plan” can be traced back to the fall of Lucifer and his angels from heaven. Alice Bailey wrote that the revolt of the angels against God was part of “the divine plan of evolution,” for by«it the fallen angels “descended from their sinless and free state of existence in order to develop full divine awareness on earth,” [Alice Bailey, The Externalization of the Hierarchy (New York: Lucis Publishing Company, 1957), p. 118].
In this total reversal of Christian theology, the Fall of man was really an ascent to knowledge, for by it man’s “eyes were opened” to good and evil [This is also the view of the feminist theologians of the Re-imagining movement, who honor Eve for having partaken of the forbidden fruit].
Thus, wrote Helen Blavatsky: “It is but natural … to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the ‘Harbinger of Light,’ bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of the automaton created by Jehovah…. Indeed, [mankind] was taught wisdom and the hidden knowledge by the ‘Fallen Angel,’ “ [Blavatsky, The Secret Doctrine, vol. 2 (Wheaton, Illinois: The Theosophical Publishing House, 1888; revised ed. 1970), pp. 243, 513].
As man’s “benefactor,” Lucifer continues to assist man’s evolution. In the words of David Spangler, a disciple of the writings of Blavatsky and Bailey, Lucifer is “the angel of man’s evolution,” [David Spangler, Reflections on the Christ (Scotland: Findhorn Community Press, 1978), p. 37].
Within New Age esoteric societies it is taught that, for the furtherance of “The Plan,” mass “planetary initiations” will occur. According to Benjamin Creme—another follower of Blavatsky and Bailey—”revitalized” Christian churches and Masonic lodges will be used for the purpose of giving these initiations. And as we have seen, David Spangler has stated that these initiations will be “Luciferic” at their esoteric core. Reiterating the teachings of Alice Bailey, who “channeled” them from a discarnate entity called “Djwhal Khul,” Spangler writes:
“Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness as we move into the New Age … each of us is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic initiation…. Lucifer comes to give us the final … Luciferic initiations … that many people in the days ahead will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age,” [David Spangler, Reflections on the Christ (Scotland: Findhorn Community Press, 1978), pp. 40, 44] Orthodox Christian: THE PLAN FOR THE NEW AGE
I want to bring out a simple factoid here if any one has children or has observed them. They are not devine! They are born little bundles of sin. We don’t have to teach them to be bad they just are. Case in point we are all born into sin. Still born spiritually if you will. That is why Jesus told Nicodemus that “Ye need to be born again…” When Adam and Eve sinned against God they died instantly (spiritually). Then they where knew they where naked. It is sin that strips us of our relationship with the true God. The fruit of knowledge (currupt) is from the wise serpent. The father of lies twists the truth and with his deadly venom poisions wisdom and enslaves mankind all the time by saying “You shall be wise…You shall be like gods…Free yourself…”
According to Christian teachings, the normal collective state of humanity is one of “original sin.” Sin is a word that has been greatly misunderstood and misinterpreted. Literally translated from the ancient Greek in which the New Testament was written, to sin means to miss the mark, as an archer who misses the target, so to sin means to miss the point of human existence. It means to live unskilfully, blindly, and thus to suffer and cause suffering. Again, the term, stripped of its cultural baggage and misinterpretations, points to the dysfunction inherent in the human condition.
Eckhart Tolle and A New Earth – Is He Right About What’s Wrong? « Proleptic Life Excellent articles on Tolles at the above link…
Returning to the word Tolle used. Did he accurately say what that word means in the New Testament? We don’t have to guess. That word is used 175 times and a little effort will produce a decent understanding of “sin.” Here are a few of the ways that word is used:
Matthew 1:21 She shall bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.
Matthew 3:6 (They) were baptized by him in the Jordan, confessing their sins.
John 8:11 Go and sin no more.
1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.
Acts 3:19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out…
John 1:29 Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.
I want to get at is the function of the biblical sense of Conscience as I have provided at the bottom of this article is the entymololgy of the word: Conscince. In short it means Con (with) science (knowledge). We have been given an internal moral compass that people like Tolles, Darwin, Dawkins and a myriad of people who do not want to answer to thier own conscience to a Holy and righteous God. That would not be good. Why…you ask! Because their conscience is defiled and no longer functions so they build entire thought systems to pacify the lusts and natural sinful desires of our hearts.
Jeremiah called it like this: “The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17
For there is no respect of persons with God.
For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; For not the hearers of the law [are] just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and [their] thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)
In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel. Romans 2:11-16
What’s at stake in this evolution for the gainsayers with unruly, vain talkers and deceivers.
Here is a quote from the once atheist and Oxford University professor, C.S. Lewis:
I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him; “I am ready to accept Jesus a s a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.” That is the one things we must not say. A man who is merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic, on the level with a man who says He is a poached egg, or else He would be the devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was and is the Son of God or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.
Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:
Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake… This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith; Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. Unto the pure all things [are] pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving [is] nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled. They profess that they know God; but in works they deny [him], being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward. BLB (KJV) 2Cr 1
c.1225, from O.Fr. conscience, from L. conscientia “knowledge within oneself, a moral sense,” prp. of conscire “be mutually aware,” from com- “with” + scire “to know.” Probably a loan-translation of Gk. syneidesis. Sometimes nativized in O.E./M.E. as inwit. Rus. also uses a loan-translation, so-vest, “conscience,” lit. “with-knowledge.” Conscientious objector first recorded 1916.
Con”science\, n. [F. conscience, fr. L. conscientia, fr. consciens, p. pr. of conscire to know, to be conscious; con- + scire to know. See Science.]
1. Knowledge of one’s own thoughts or actions; consciousness. [Obs.]
The sweetest cordial we receive, at last, Is conscience of our virtuous actions past. –Denham.
2. The faculty, power, or inward principle which decides as to the character of one’s own actions, purposes, and affections, warning against and condemning that which is wrong, and approving and prompting to that which is right; the moral faculty passing judgment on one’s self; the moral sense.
To Tolle Jesus is not God – at least not in the sense understood by orthodox Christianity. Tolle cannot think of Jesus as God in that way because to him God is not a personal being. God is an essence, a presence and consciousness that has become unconscious. We are all god, we are all the I Am. God is in everything and everyone and everyone and everything possesses this “being.” God is not a person to Tolle. God is not the Holy, Holy, Holy divine Lord before Whom we all must stand and give an account. Since Tolle’s view of God is distorted his view of Jesus must also be distorted.
Two things I find it unfortunate and tragic about this: First, that Tolle would use Jesus to sell his Eastern mysticism. I can’t find any other reason why he would need to even mention Jesus in A New Earth. As I stated in another comment on another post, I would not have given this book or Tolle any attention had he kept Jesus and the Bible out of it. There are a lot of books on Eastern mysticism, Hinduism, etc. filling bookstores and I never have mentioned one. I suspect Tolle uses Jesus to make what he is saying seem pallitable to Westerners, to Christians, to church people. Second, I find it really tragic that people are not more discerning when encountering this sort of thing. I find a number of people don’t seem to recognize the difference between Tolle’s view of Christ, God, salvation, human nature and eternity and the historical orthodox view.“Eckhart Tolle, Who do you say that I Am?” – Jesus- « Proleptic Life
Darwin on conscience:
At the moment of action, man will no doubt be apt to follow the strongest impulse; and though this may occasionally prompt him to the noblest deeds, it willmore commonly lead him to gratify his own dsires at the expense of other men. But after their gratification when past and weaker impressions are judged by the ever-enduring social instinct, and by his deep regard for the good opinion of his fellows, retribution will surely come. He will then feel remorse, repentance, regret, or shame; . . . . . He will consequently resolve more or less firmly to act differently for the future; and this is conscience; for conscience looks backwards, and serves as a guide for the future. (op. cit., ch. 4)
Well Dr. Chuck Darwin got the impulse and gratification of desires right…See man at his heart is wicked. That wickedness is our ole sin nature we recieved from the fall in the garden of Eden.

The heart [is] deceitful above all [things], and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jeremiah 17:9

This is my favoriate verse: His word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones! The living word in our heart is our only hope!
H. P. Blavatsky
“Theosophy” comes from the Greek “Theos” and “sophia” meaning literally “Divine Knowledge”. It is a body of knowledge – accumulated since time immemorial – that answers the great questions of life – Who am I, Where am I going, What am I doing here, What is the nature of the soul, What is the origin of the universe and What can be said about the nature of divinity. Blavatsky Net Foundation
We reincarnate into successive lives. Once we have reached the human level we do not regress back into animal forms.
The law of karma acts over our successive lives to ensure justice. (We don’t get away with it.) We are the cause of every joy and pain in our own life.
A law of cycles provides fundamental structure at all levels. Two examples are our pattern of reincarnation, and the continuing “lives” of the universe as it appears, then returns to its source.
Evolution applies on a grand scale to all of life.
Soul gets involved in this world of matter. It experiences and learns. Soul then works its way back in a long pilgrimage to its primal source. This again follows a cyclic pattern.
This evolution achieves experience, self-awareness, and ever increasing perfection. Evolution occurs on the physical, mental, and spiritual planes.
“Survival of the fittest” along with gradual accumulation of small beneficial changes does not explain the “origin of the species”. The origin of the species is due to intelligent design.
Humanity has experienced significant evolution in long periods on the continents (not islands) of Atlantis and Lemuria.
There is a seven fold constitution of man ranging from the physical plane to the purely spiritual plane.
Thoughts are tangible objects on higher planes. Every thought and action has its effect on us and on our surroundings and has a karmic consequence.
The three higher planes of this constitution form the “higher self” and that is what reincarnates from life to life and accumulates the experience, the lessons, the virtues. The lower planes form the “lower self” and are the vehicle used by the higher self while it is living in this active testing ground of incarnate life.
THEOSOPHY IN THE CHRISTIAN BIBLE
The doctrine of reincarnation is taught in the Christian Bible, that is, that you will be born over and over again in this world according to your destiny, to follow the effects of causes you yourself have put in motion in whatever life. Where is that found? In the mouth of Jesus; and certainly if Jesus, the founder of Christianity, has stated this, has any man or any body of men, has any person any right to say that it is not true? I deny their right, and I say that Christianity has been deprived by theologians of a doctrine which Jesus himself declared, when reincarnation is taken away from it. We say that the doctrine is in the Gospels….
And if we take this view we know what he meant when he said to Nicodemus that a man must be born again. He meant not only the regeneration of the soul, but reborn into the body again; that is, that man is a soul who comes into a house to live life after life, and he must go from house to house until he has learned the whole architecture of human life and is able to build a perfect house.

THE CHRISTIAN SCHEME
God: Where? Who? What?
Now with regard to other invisible Beings, some of whom are still higher, and others far lower on the scale of divine evolution. To the latter we will have nothing to say; the former will have nothing to say to us: for we are as good as non-existent for them. The homogenous can take no cognizance of the heterogeneous; and unless we learn to shuffle off our mortal coil and commune with them “spirit to spirit,” we can hardly hope to recognize their true nature. Moreover, every true Theosophist holds that the divine Higher Self of every mortal man is of the same essence as the essence of these Gods…
Over the whole face of the earth, from the North to the South Pole, from the frozen gulfs of Northland to the torrid planes of Southern India, from Central America to Greece and Chaldea, the Solar Fire, as the symbol of divine Creative Power, of Life and Love, was worshipped. The union of the Sun (male element) with Earth and the Water (matter, the female element) was celebrated in the temples of the whole Universe. If Pagans had a feast commemorative of this union-which they celebrated nine months ere the Winter Solstice, when Isis was said to have conceived-so have the Roman Catholic Christians. Blavatsky text
THE CHRISTIAN SCHEME
Wisdom, the first emanation of En-Soph; the Protogonos, the Hypostasis; the Adam Kadmon of the kabalist, the Brahma of the Hindu; the Logos of Plato, and the “Beginning” of St. John is the Rasit of the Book of Genesis. If rightly interpreted it overturns, as we have remarked, the whole elaborate system of Christian theology, for it proves that behind the creative Deity, there was a higher god: a planner, an architect; and that the former was but His executive agent-a simple power!
They persecuted the Gnostics, murdered the philosophers, and burned the kabalists and the masons; and when the day of the great reckoning arrives, and the light shines in darkness, what will they have to offer in the place of the departed, expired religion? What will they answer, these pretended monotheists, these worshippers and pseudo-servants of the one living God, to their Creator? How will they account for this long persecution of them who were the true followers of the Grand Megalistor, the supreme great master of the Rosicrucians, the first of masons? “For he is the Builder and Architect of the Temple of the universe; He is the Verbum Scipienti.”3 Blavatsky text
THE OCCULT NATURE OF THE SEALS EXPLAINED
Quote from “The Secret Teachings of All Ages”, pgs XC and XCI –
“European mysticism was not dead at the time the United States of America was founded. The hand of the mysteries controlled in the establishment of the new government, for the signature of the mysteries may still be seen on the Great Seal of the United States of America. Careful analysis of the seal discloses a mass of occult and masonic symbols chief among them, the so-called American eagle. …..the American eagle upon the Great Seal is but a conventionalised phoenix….” End quote. Emphasis added.
Now, what is a phoenix? It is a mystical bird that rises from man’s first attempt to set up a similar system of One World Order, namely ‘the Tower of Babel’.
2Referring to the New World Order, the ‘Weekend Australian’ newspaper, 1st September 1990, printed the large headline – ‘How to make our tower of Babel work properly’.
