People Who Do Not Need to Read This Book:

Apostates


TOPICS: Culture/Society; News/Current Events; Philosophy
KEYWORDS: bookreview; christendom; deathofthewest; hope; perversion; religion; truth; westernculture
Whatever happened to Western civilization? Somehow, Christians have lost ground in every cultural area of leadership and influence in Europe and America since 1700. This is an indisputable fact. The remaining Christians search for an explanation. They want to know how it happened.

This is the story of the decline and fall of Western civilization. It is the story of uncommonly powerful men, unfathomably evil men. . . apostates.

Reader beware! This book faces head-on the spiritual forces that leveled a full-out attack on the Christian faith in the Western world. On the one hand, it is a story of demonic possession, insanity, suicide, mass-murder, adultery, homosexuality, cultural and social revolutions, and unbridled, maniacal apostasy. It is the story of apostasy on a massive scale. But it is also a story of hope and victory for the last men standing in the ashes of Western civilization. It will be a testimony to the inevitable triumph of Jesus Christ over the great men of renown who picked the wrong fight in the history of the West.

So, the author does not believe that chrstianity is objectively, universally true? He merely regards it as the ethno-cultural property of “western civilization?”

The corruption, depravity and violence prevalent in Western culture was predicted in Daniel, Ezekiel and Revelation. We are living in the End Times and the Lord is coming. Soon. Maranatha.

Solzhenitsyn wrote about it as well, he tried to warn us.

Kevin Swanson is a very conservative Presbyterian pastor. I’ve been listening to his radio broadcast and sermons for years. He definitely believes Christianity is objectively true.

I seem to recall another writer predicting the same, Judge Robert Bork's “Slouching Toward Gomorrah!”

And what does God have to do with a cathedral anyhow... the very picture on it suggests the sort of externalization of faith that has eventually led to its perishing.

Freud, the atheist, gets blamed for a lot.

I’m not sure Freud deserves all the credit for the chaos that is attributed to him. He created a set of atheistic parables (calling on Greek polytheisic mythology, ironically) for various common issues of human psychosexual maturation. To actually declare religious faith wrong was probably beyond Freud’s power. Ironically, the loss of religious faith made the whole issue of maturity less and less relevant. It’s God who wanted men to be mature. Now we have gaggles of immature men and nobody cares. They’re busy with bread and circuses.

And, I’d chide the church a bit for not having a better answer to Freud’s methods than catcalls. Christ is the Healer, isn’t He? Can’t heaven do things any better than the world (or hell) can? If Freud outstripped the church, maybe the church was too squeamish to realize the power of its “religion.”

Yes OPC (Othodox Presbyterian Church) - Reformed. Reformed means Reforming ourselves to the Word of God rather than reforming the Word to us.

The success of capitalism has allowed our government appear to be a very effective replacement for god.

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

...”An Expose of the Men Responsible for the Decline and Fall of Western Civilization...Sigmund Freud, the most destructive man in human history - destroyed the sense of individual conscience and guilt which has placed man on the road back to the jungle”.....

He did, indeed, form and perpetuate incredible false psychological theories which resulted in tragedy for some from false treatments. Women, who were probably simply suffering from common hormonal anxieties or other disorders, were common victims of Freud. Freud gathered great power onto himself and became very nasty to anyone who would question his theories. At one point, he used cocaine and promoted it for his patients. He is a fascinating study of how a charismatic charlatan took over the rational thought processes of a very important facet of medicine and, literally, the entire civilized world.

To actually declare religious faith wrong was probably beyond Freud’s power...I'm really thinking of Freud's influence at a much deeper level than merely his teachings about formal religion - he essentially taught (or at least is perceived as having taught) that individual morality and conscience was nor only wrong, but hurtful - that's the only excuse most of mankind, only a few steps above the law of the jungle much of the time anyway, needed - religion, formal morality, common sense, all those things which are supposed to help us as individuals rise above our base instincts, can be rationalized away when we have the excuse that to try to inhibit and sublimate our impulses likely will lead to terrible things like neurosis and even worse psychosis - this was the essential rationalization for the whole rapid deterioration of behavior and decline of morality we saw in the sixties - the churches did a lousy job of trying to hold up against the onslaught, but then so did a lot of authority figures from Dr. Spock to many of our politicians.....

If morality and conscience actually went away there would be no reason to want psychological healing. Why not rather celebrate having gone crazy? I think he actually was against shallow uses of these things. The church has given him more gratuitous catcalls than it has looked to its own knitting... and that is my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

I’d also like to point out that the founder of NARTH (go look it up) was a Freudian psychoanalyst, Dr. Charles Socarides. The church should have been taking this bull by the horns. It didn’t.

I think he actually was against shallow uses of these things...I think he was too - that's why I was careful to say that he was perceived to have taught - it's been a half century since I read it, but I think it was Freud's "Civilization and Its Discontents" where he talks abut the necessary moderation in the Super-ego's influence on the individual's functioning - he thought the conscience had been too strongly developed in too many people in his time, but still felt that conscience was necessary for people to live together in any sort of relationship of mutual benefit - unfortunately the latter part of this got lost in the translation of his teachings into the popular culture - the idea that we shouldn't be too restricted by our consciences and morality is probably just what a lot of first year psych student - college sophomores want to hear, and take away from Freud - my experience in church such as it was years ago wasn't that they were particularly critical of Freud - in fact I can remember some "intellectual" preachers who seemed to weave bits and pieces of his teachings into their sermons with apparent approval - but I certainly agree that most churches have spent too much time finding fault with other institutions and practices and not nearly enough "casting the moat from their own eyes" (I think that's the way it went)......
