''Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.''  (Jude 1:3)

Watching the opening ceremonies to the 2012 London Olympics, it was alarming (but not surprising) to see the amount of pagan saturation that could be poured into one event.  Granted, the Olympics themselves hail originally from pagan antiquity, beginning in the 8th century BC in Greece.  The games then were marked with celebratory pig sacrifices and prayers to their god Zeus.  The Olympic torch, which went forth before the games, was carried by the Vestal Virgins (of Roman antiquity), who cultivated the fire that they supposedly received from the Titan Prometheus, who stole it from Zeus to give mankind a chance at attaining godhood.

But out of all the truly disturbing and strange scenes in the opening ceremonies (giant baby anyone?) there was a tribute to the Beatles hit album, the ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club’ with a full on parade marching through the coliseum.  If you were to Google a picture of the Beatle’s album cover to the same name, aside from all the symbolic eastern mysticism scattered about, you’d see in the top left hand corner…one Aleister Crowley, once labeled the “wickedest man alive”.

Biblical Perspective

"And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many."  (Mark 13:5-6)

LA Marzulli recently pointed out in his blog something that I think gets missed by a lot of people.  In this verse by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse, Jesus stated that many would come either in the stead of, or claiming to be Him in the last days.  LA points out the prophetic importance of this particular verse, in that when Christ said it, He only had a handful of followers.  Yet we can see that MANY have come over the centuries either claiming to be Christ or claiming the same power and enlightenment that Jesus had.  This certainly explains why no one is claiming to be Mohammed. 

"For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.  Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.  Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears." (Acts 20:29-31)

The following examples are of demonically inspired apostates, who had and are still having a devastatingly corrupting influence on our culture to this day.  They began drawing disciples after themselves by presenting truth mixed with lies.  What’s interesting to see is how far they fell from what they believed at the beginning, to what they believed at the end of their lives. 

Historical

Helena Blavatsky (1831-1891), was the lead founder for Theosophy (which is a variation of Theravada Buddhism).  Her philosophical impact is still felt in at least 50 nations around the world and promotes the lie that when a person uncovers the truth that lies within them, salvation is attained and promulgated into the next life, which is the highest state one can hope to attain in Nirvana.  She was the lynchpin that influenced Alice Bailey (later Oprah) who would go on to corrupt many millions of people.

Alice Bailey, (1880-1949), after divorcing her husband for abuse (an Episcopalian priest), she discovered Madame Blavatsky’s teachings on Theosophy and subsequently descended into its demonic studies with the help of her Tibetan ascended master, Djwhal Khul.  Her ‘guide’ assisted her in founding the ‘Lucis Trust’, teachings on ‘Maitreya’, eugenics, and so much more…all of which encompasses the depth and width of the New Age teachings today.  Her influence has been felt by millions, and was even incorporated into the founding of the United Nations.

Aleister Crowley (1875 to 1947) was an outspoken libertine occultist and self proclaimed ‘Antichrist’.  He developed several forms of occultism, largely based off of Egyptian paganism such as ‘Thelema’ and the ‘Golden Dawn’.  It seems that his mixture of Near and Far East occultism, drug use, and sexual perversity were something that should be praised by the Beatles, who then influenced a generation, and ultimately the artistic orchestrators of the London Olympics.  I guess when Satan has a viewing television audience of 1 billion; you go for the gold and pour on the paganism.

Aside from the fact that the listed apostates above were all raised in Christian homes, they all moved west from Great Britain (at the zenith of its empirical power at the time) to the up and coming United States.  It’s as if Prometheus’s ‘torch of illumination’ was carried west to influence and corrupt the next up and coming empire, much as it had when declining Grecian paganism moved west to rising Roman power.  They also all lived during the same time as Israel was in the process of becoming a nation again.  Zionism began in earnest in the 1890s and found political fruition with the Balfour Declaration in 1917, before becoming a nation again in 1948.  Coincidence?

In our more recent past, we have some uniquely American false prophets and their tragic results: Jim Jones (900+ suicides), David Koresh (76 murder-suicides), and Marshall Applewhite (39 suicides) to name just a few.  These men were all brought up in Christian homes, and at some point, departed from the truth and began mixing scripture with their own doctrines of demons…which always ends up with tragic results.

But this isn’t a new thing, for men and women began introducing heresies and damning heresies into the Christian belief system from as far back as the 1st century.  I separate the two, because a heresy in and of itself may not be a damning (salvation) issue, but if left to fester unchallenged… always tend to grow like a virus and lead into some new variation of a damning heresy ultimately denying some salvational aspect of the Christian faith.  They always end up revolving around the same lie that Satan promised Eve in the beginning that she too could become like God.

Saint Lucifer

Aside from having the misfortune of being named Lucifer, there was a man named Lucifer Calaritanus, who was in 362 AD the Bishop of Cagliari.  There isn’t that much information about him, but apparently, he was vehemently opposed to Arianism…which is a good thing.  (Arianism denied the Triune nature of God and proposed that God the Father created God the Son).  In John Henry Blunt’s book ‘Dictionary of Sects, Heresies, Ecclesiastical Parties, and Schools of Thought’ (page 262), it list the ‘Luciferians’ (not to be mistaken for the modern day Satan worshippers) as:

“A schismatical party, followers of Lucifer, Bishop of Caralis (Cagliari) in Sardania, who in the year 362 separated from the Church, on the ground that Arian bishops and clergy, on their return to the Church, ought to be admitted only to lay communion, and that the Church which receives them into the clergy is contaminated, and her communion to be avoided.”

It appears that his condemnation as a heretic was not from God, but rather from the pre-Roman Catholic Church hierarchy, who in a spirit of apostate ecumenicalism, welcomed back the Arian priests.  This was during the Pergamos Age of the Church, when instead of the Church going out into the world; the world came into the Church.  (Pergamos in Greek means ‘mixed-marriage’).  It appears that his sin (according to the RCC) was in his zealousness in fighting this heresy; as he was accused of not mincing words about those who promoted Arianism. 

We are to contend for the faith, not because we like to argue, but because false doctrines have real and often tragic consequences as shown in the examples above.  These consequences not only result in tragedy in this life, but apart from the redemptive salvation by Jesus Christ, always results in eternal damnation in hell.  Were we to be like the good Bishop Lucifer, and defend and contend vigorously for the faith, the church scene might have a vastly different look these days.  Satan’s number one agenda is and always will be, to keep the unsaved…unsaved, and to keep the saved from being effective.

There was another man in the Scriptures besides the Apostle Paul who wasn’t afraid to mince words, and that was the half-brother of Jesus Christ, Jude...which brings me back full circle to how I even began to think about this topic.  Hey Jude, what say you?

"For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ…. But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves."

"Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.  These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever." (Jude 1:4, 10-13)
