Illuminism Religiously

Illuminism Religiously
Thomas Allen

Illuminism is the material manifestation of Lucifer’s war against Christ Jesus and the God of the Christians. Being of Lucifer, Illuminism is extremely anti-Christian. Christ and the commandments of God are seen as preventing man from achieving his fullest potential. God hinders man’s progress and perfection; He is the great oppressor. Man can obtain salvation without Jesus. The only thing standing between man and utopia (Nirvana) is Christianity.

The essence of Illuminism is achieving salvation through knowledge. According to Still, “[I]lluminism is not just the knowledge gained from reading books, or receiving oral instruction, or even the secretive knowledge gained from initiation. Illuminism also involves a vivid flash of insight or understanding, regardless of what means are used to attain it.”[1] Still continues:
There are many ways to achieve illumination. The method most important to Illuminism is the mystical inspiration invoked by the performance of occult rituals. Illumination can be achieved by dancing to exhaustion to the rhythm of native drums. It can be brought on by sexual rituals, such as those practiced in Tantric Yoga. To the Satanists, it can be brought on by ritualistic sacrifice. Throughout history, mind-altering substances such as marijuana, hashish, peyote cactus, and LSD have been used to achieve paranormal mystical experience. In fact, the Greek word for sorcery is pharmakia from whence came the word pharmaceuticals.[2]
Illuminism’s theology is revealed today in Freemasonry, Liberal Protestantism, Catholic Modernism, Judaism, the Eastern religions, and the New Age sects. All these theologies are essentially Pantheism. Naturalism is the most common expression of Pantheism in the West.

Pantheism materializes God and makes God and the Universe one. God is merely the total of all that exists. The Universe is a great inclusive unity that devours God in that unity. Thus, the Universe becomes God, and nothing separate or distinct exists from this Universe God. The Universe becomes the sole reality. It deifies unregenerated man.

Pantheism rejects God’s personality. God is reduced to the forces and laws of nature. God is an energy, the life force or god-force, that flows through all living things — thus, man becomes God or, at least, part of God. It also rejects revelation. Religious truths come from nature, not from Divine revelation. A personal God does not exist in Pantheism. Furthermore, no person ever really dies. (Reincarnation is an integral part of the doctrines of many New Age sects.) Therefore, no one will ever face God’s personal judgment. Thus, Pantheism promises man that he is not accountable to a personal God.[3]

Because this god-force flowing through all mankind unifies man into one, Pantheism naturally leads to global unity under a one-world government and one-world religion. Such a unity will lead to a New World Order where all men will be enlightened with Illuminism. Then all mankind will have mystical powers to do what had previously been impossible.

Pantheism subordinates the individual to the collective. When an individual becomes merely a component of the masses, he ceases to be “an individual rational being, distinct and complete as to his nature and thereby in possession of inalienable rights. . . . [He loses] his dignity and integrity, lacks true individuality, and becomes an unfree, helpless mode of something else.”[4] He becomes disposable and has only what the illuministic priesthood condescends to grant him. To a Pantheist, humans are no more valuable than animals or plants.[5]

It subverts God-centered religion into man-centered religion (and ultimately into Lucifer-centered religion for Lucifer deceives man into believing that he, Lucifer, is the revealer of the secret knowledge of the Universe, which Pantheism identifies with God). Man as a collective, i.e., humanity as a whole, becomes God, and the Illuminists become the priesthood.

In the modern Western World, Pantheism manifests itself most commonly as secular humanism. Kirban defines humanism as “a system of thought or action that holds that man is capable of self-fulfillment, peace on earth, and right ethical conduct without recourse to God. Humanism therefore is the religion which defies man and dethrones God.”[6] Secular humanism has five basic doctrines: the irrelevance of Deity, the supremacy of “human reason,” the inevitability of progress, science as the guide to progress, and self-sufficiency of man.[7] Naturally, it rejects salvation through Christ Jesus, a final judgment by God, and the existence of heaven and hell. Secular humanists worship the creature, mankind (humankind for the politically correct), instead of the Creator.

Thus, man, being innately good, does not need salvation. Science will provide for the needs of man including molding man into a more uniform, and therefore, easier to manage, being. Government becomes the guardian angel that will guide man ever onward and upward — hence, totalitarianism. Through human reason, man can solve all his problems and progress and advance independently of any transcendent god; consequently, God is irrelevant, if not an obstacle. The principal Mystery cults, Pantheism, Gnosticism, and Hermetism mixed together form secular humanism.[8]

Secular humanism is built upon hatred. The old Soviet Union epitomized a secular humanist society. The government of the Soviet Union administered the world’s most humanistic state. Yet it murdered more than 66 million of its own citizens. Abortion, genetic engineering, cloning, and euthanasia have grown out of secular humanism.

Like Communism, secular humanism rejects the supernatural and divine revaluation. Both promote world government. Both want to control the schools and universities and to destroy Christianity. Public schools have become the churches of the secular humanists, which is why they hate anything Christian appearing in public schools.

The ultimate goal of secular humanism is to demoralize its adherers and fill them with existential despair. When confronted with life’s spiritual realities, the honest secular humanists lose their belief in the divinity of man. Pride often prevents them from turning to the true God, the God of the Christians, whom they have spent a lifetime denouncing or ignoring. So, most turn to mysticism, some non-rational philosophy, or simply go mad with despair.[9]

The other important branch of Pantheism today is occultism. While secular humanism takes materialism to the extreme, occultism often takes spiritualism to the extreme. Occultists are the spiritual followers of Lucifer. Most believe that Lucifer is the coequal of the God of the Christians and that he is superior to God’s Christ in that if he does not eventually defeat Christ, Christ will never defeat him. Occultists see the God of the Christians as the power of evil and Lucifer as the true God and the power of good — which is what the Jewish Cabala teaches.[10] By revealing secret knowledge to man, Lucifer becomes man’s savior. Nevertheless, most occultists reject a personal devil and the idea of hell: Eternal punishment cannot exist because no personal God who passes final judgment on individuals exists. Freeing man from a personal external God (the God of the Christians) Who demands obedience to His laws and Who will judge every person according to His Son Jesus, is the objective of all New Age religions. The goal of New Age religions, like the old Eastern religions of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Taoism, “is not to know God, but to be God.”[11] Thus, occultists seek salvation independent of God’s rule and authority.

Occultists seek power through hidden knowledge, which will lead to salvation. They practice manipulating the forces of nature through spiritual means, i.e., they practice magic. Magic may be divided into two branches: divining and operative. Divining magic includes aeromancy (fortune telling with wind or clouds), anthropomancy (fortune telling with entrails of human beings), astrology (fortune telling with planets), cartomancy (fortune telling with cards), hydromancy (fortune telling with liquids), oneiromancy (fortune telling with dreams), palmistry (fortune telling with marks on the palm), and pyromancy (fortune telling with fire). Operative magic includes alchemy (transmutation of base metals into precious metals), mesmerism (hypnotism), necromancy (conjuring the spirits of the dead), and theurgy (compelling a god or supernatural being to do or not do something).

A hybrid of secular humanism and occultism is spiritual humanism.[12] Man is by nature divine. He is God, an enlightened god-man and absolute sovereign. Thus, he is perfect and all-powerful. All that is needed to deify him fully is proper illumination. Then man will become a higher race of cosmic gods and will be able to manipulate the Universe to suit his will.

A chief difference between secular humanism and spiritual humanism is that secular humanism rejects the spiritual while spiritual humanism acknowledges and accepts the spiritual.[13]

Illuministic religions typically share two common features — the two assertions that Lucifer used to deceive Eve. First, no one will really die and face a final judgment of God. If the body dies, the person’s spirit and soul will return to inhabit another body — reincarnation, or his spirit and soul will migrate to some higher level of spiritual existence. Second, man has the right, power, and ability to become like God if not become God.[14]

Pantheism gives religious sanction to the collective doctrines and programs of Illuminism. All forms of Pantheism are illuministic. Consequently, Illuminists preach Pantheism and use it to advance Illuminism.

To conceal their intent to subvert Christianity into Pantheism, Illuminists nearly always cloak their theology in Christian jargon. They call their theology “Christianity” to gain an audience for their fraud. Without such deception, destroying the authority of the Christian Scriptures would be far more difficult, if not impossible. Considering the success that the Illuminists have achieved in destroying fundamental Christianity since Weishaupt introduced this tactic in the late eighteenth century, it has worked markedly well.

Man’s religions can be divided into two groups. One believes that man is innately bad, i.e., a self-centered, self-serving sinner; this is the religion of true Christianity. The other believes that man is innately good; this is the essence of Illuminism and most other religions. True Christians believe that man can never perfect himself, is incapable of pleasing God by his own works, and, therefore, needs a savior; Jesus, the Son of God, is this savior. Man cannot earn salvation; salvation is from God. Illuminism and the other religions believe that with knowledge, science, and education, man can perfect himself and save himself, if he is even in need of salvation. With his own works, man can save himself without the intervention of a savior. Man can become like God, if not God, by following the proper rituals and ceremonies or the teachings and examples of a holy teacher like Confucius, Buddha, or Mohammad.

From these two basic religious views come all men’s political, social, and economic principles. Thus, Christianity is incompatible with Illuminism in all its forms, including Communism, fascism, socialism, Zionism, globalism, multiracialism, multiculturalism, Freemasonry, Judaism, Islam, and New Age religions, which is why the Illuminists must destroy Christianity.

Illuminism Operationally

Illuminism Operationally
Thomas Allen

[Editor’s note: Footnotes in original are omitted.]

The ultimate goal of the Illuminists and their secret societies today is to achieve the dream of Nimrod. It is to establish a New World Order with one world government and one world religion. “[It is] not a popular movement but a conspiracy to impose on the people a system directly opposed to their real demands and aspirations. . . .”[1]

Lucifer is the spiritual head of this government and religion. (According to Albert Pike, the god of the Jews and Freemasons is Lucifer.[2]) The Illuminists are his ministers and priests. Other insiders involved in bringing about this Satanic paradise can be found among leaders of government, business, labor, academia, and religion.

To achieve their goals, Illuminists seek to destroy civilization and all legitimate authority of the family, Church (Christianity), and state (community, body politic) and replace it with a new authority. This new authority is the omnipotent, omnipresent government which the Illuminists control. Communist China, especially the rural areas, is a model of the Illuminists’ vision of the world and their New World Order. Another good model of the New World Order is North Korea where the ruling elite is well fed and lives in royal splendor and sumptuousness while the enslaved masses are dying from starvation, forced drills, and the monotony of never-ending propaganda. Palestine offers a picture of the transitional period — a relatively unarmed people (Palestinians) continuously terrorized by a powerful highly technological military force (Israel).

A basic principle of Illuminism is that an elite, the Illuminists, should rule mankind because they are the enlightened, illuminated, and chosen ones. As such, only they “are capable of ruling mankind in an orderly manner.”[3]

The Illuminists have advanced their cause through two apparently conflicting and contradicting ideologies: atomistic individualism and collectivism. Atomistic individualism seeks to destroy all authority. Collectivism seeks to place all authority in government. Atomistic individualism destroys existing legitimate authority, and collectivism fills the authority vacuum with all-powerful government.

The most potent weapon of the Illuminists is not the gun or dagger. It is sin — especially licentiousness, that is, assassination of the soul rather than the body. Every possible means is used to encourage, foster, and spread immorality. Sin must become habitual without escape.

Laws that proscribe or inhibit vice and immorality must be repealed or left unenforced. Thus, pornography, miscegenation, adultery, fornication, prostitution, and homosexual sex become acceptable. Public decency and virtue must be suppressed while immorality, especially sexual immorality, is promoted and protected. Licentiousness exceeding the worse of paganism must replace Christian virtue.[4]

Marriage is secularized and loses its holiness.[5] Divorce is encouraged and made easy. Although concurrent polygamy is not yet accepted, consecutive polygamy is.

Schools are to be used in the war to destroy the soul. Blasphemy and sexual immorality are to be taught and promoted. In the name of science, health, and sex education, pornography is pushed upon young formative minds. Thus, governmental control of schools is necessary (Illuminists control the government, which has nearly monopolistic control of education).

As women cannot be suppressed, the Illuminists have undertaken an exceedingly successful program to corrupt them. All distinction between the sexes is eliminated.[6] Schools have aided in this corruption process. Feminism is an important program for the corruption of women.

In their war to destroy the soul, Illuminists have stressed disrespect for the Lord’s Day. So successful have they been in commercializing and destroying the uniqueness of the Lord’s Day, it is hardly distinguishable from any other day.

Illuminists seek to degrade the arts and literature. Hideous and aberrant art, literature, drama, and music are promoted. Degenerated perversion replaces wholesomeness. Pornography and blasphemy are encouraged.[7]

Internationalism and globalism replace nationalism and patriotism.[8] To achieve this goal, government must be weakened by corruption. Consequently, Illuminists encourage and promote corruption, which is easy to do since most high level governmental officials are Illuminists, agents, dupes, sympathizers, fellow-travelers, or opportunists, to cause cynicism and distrust by the people, which leads to anarchy, a natural ally of Illuminism.

Illuminists seek to eliminate all social opposition to their subversive program. To accomplish this goal, they exaggerate and promote social and economic differences. Thus, they create suspicions, unrest, riots, and revolts among various groups. Multicultural and multiracial societies make the promotion of differences easy — thus, the promotion of multicultural and multiracial societies.

In 1919, allied forces in Germany found a document, Communist Rules for Revolution, that set out rules for subverting a country.[9] These rules are essentially identical to the illuministic program for gaining control of a country. The rules are:

1. Corrupt the youth and turn them from religion, i.e., Christianity. Substitute sex for religion. Destroy their independence and ruggedness.

2. Gain control of the media.

3. Focus people’s attention on athletics, pornography, entertainment, and other trivialities and away from politics and government.

4. Use unimportant controversial matters to divide people into hostile camps.

5. Ridicule and disdain natural leaders and, thereby, destroy people’s confidence in them.

6. Encourage governmental extravagance, destroy its credit, and create discontent with inflation.

7. Foster unnecessary strikes in vital industries. Cultivate riots and civil disorders and promote leniency toward such riots and disorders.

8. Destroy moral virtue, honesty, and temperance.

9. Restrict ownership of firearms and move toward confiscating all privately owned guns.

Illuminists have sought to remove from courts of justice, public assemblies, and public schools all Christian symbols. This endeavor has been extremely successful and is almost complete.
Christian symbols seldom appear on public property or in public assemblies. The few remnants of public recognition of God, Christ, or the Bible are rapidly being eradicated.

One objective of secret societies is to break family ties and prepare initiates to become adepts. With his hatred of the family and his desire to destroy it, Stalin encouraged his agents to promote its destruction. They were to advocate promiscuity, legalize abortion, easy divorce, and abolition of inheritance. Records of title, birth, and family history were to be destroyed.

Illuminists prefer and promote democratic government with political power concentrated in the central government, which they control. To dilute the power of the people to control their government, they promote indiscriminate universal suffrage. While preaching civil liberties, they promote government as the solver of all problems.

Illuminists seek to eradicate all national distinction. Therefore, they advocate a multiracial, multicultural society. (To organize effective opposition against the Illuminists is much more difficult, if not impossible, in such a society, which is another reason that Illuminists promote multiracialism and multiculturalism.)

They despise patriotism and “strongly organized rural communities settled permanently on the land.”[10] Thus, they adopt programs designed to drive people off the land and into the cities where they are easier to control.

Not only do Illuminists promote political democracy, they also promote social democracy. They seek to destroy all social classes. They despise a society organized on the basis of classes that are “bound together by common interest and mutual services.”[11] Thus, they undertake to reduce all mankind to slaves of the Illuminists. (An illuministic society consists of two classes: slaves and their illuministic masters. The slaves owe everything to their masters, but their masters owe nothing to the slaves.)

To summarize, the goals of Illuminism are:
(1) The destruction of Christianity; (2) The abolition of private property; (3) The abolition of inheritance; (4) The breakup of the family unit (i.e., the home, marriage, morality, and the proper education of children); (5) The destruction of patriotism: (6) The abolition of all ordered, national governments, and (7) The creation of a One World Government.[12]
To this list needs to be added the annihilation of the Aryan people.

Illuminists promote socialism not because it will lift up the working class or make people materially better — they know that it will not. They promote it because it is destructive. It destroys superiority, virtue, patriotism, nationalism, and, above all, true Christianity. It destroys beauty and nobleness in art and literature and makes evil good. Socialism destroys what makes man man.

For these same reasons, Illuminists support multiracial and multicultural societies. Multiracialism and multiculturalism are highly destructive. They also promote homosexualism, not because they care about homosexuals (most Illuminists who are not homosexuals are as repulsed by it as other people), but because it destroys society.

Underlying Illuminism, and what motivates most Illuminists, is hatred. They hate the nation-state and the Aryan race. (The God of the Christian is a God of segregation while Lucifer, the God of Illuminism, is a god of integration.) They hate moral restraints that the Christian religion places on individuals and associations. Furthermore, they despise technological progress because it raises the economic well-being of the common people, whom they loathe. Illuminists hate the Aryan race not only because it is the race created in the image of God: They also hate it because it is the race of Christianity and has done more to spread the word of God than any other people. It is also the race that has done the most to improve the living conditions of the common people throughout the world.

To achieve their goals, Illuminists follow the tactics laid down by Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Order of the Illuminati. They are:

1. Gain control of education and church leadership.

2. Express concern for humanity while making people indifferent to all other relationship.

3. Gain control of reviewers and booksellers and use them to promote illuministic writers.

4. Decry writers of notice who do not accord with illuministic plans.

5. Promise emancipation to women, and use them to control men.

6. Win support of the common people by pandering, at least temporarily, to their prejudices.

7. Gain control of the military academies, publishers, literary societies, and the like.

8. Secure control of the judiciary and the legal system to enact laws favorable to Illuminism and win favorable rulings in court.

9. Assist and promote fellow Illuminists, giving them preference to all others of equal merit.

10. Place people where they will do the most good for the advancement of Illuminism.

11. Surround people in authority who do not agree with the philosophy of Illuminism with Illuminists.

12. Remain in the background and work through front organizations.
