Infiltration of the Catholic Church

This is the text from my YouTube clip "Catholic Infiltration"

I will tell you the complete story now. It was on a Saturday afternoon in 1989 (early October as I remember) when I went to Villawood, the post office (at the time it was located at Woodville Road) was a known meet up place for Satanists. As I arrived at the post office on Woodville Road, I encountered two Satanists I knew (Vijay and Jerrum) who were being spoken to by an older man. I just assumed that he was asking them for directions, or was trying to get change for the phone boxes or just knew them in general. Vijay and Jerrum were aged about 18 or 19 and the older man would have been about 60, the older man had the command of the conversation. Vijay nodded his head in my direction and the talking stopped. Jerrum looked over at me and then turned to the man and said "he is one of us". I was then motioned to move in closer and the conversation resumed with the man asking us if we looked at infiltrating the Catholic church orders or other churches through getting into their ministries, but the Catholic church was the prime target because if the Catholic church falls then so will Christianity. Although he spoke to us as a group he seemed to be speaking to each one of us individually, it was almost hypnotic. (He was asking us and yet at the same time telling us)

Jerrum, Vijay and I were not of the wannabe tough guys you generally find in groups of 'devil worshipers'. No, we were of the 'occult set' and had become somewhat separate from the others. I suppose you could say it was a type of elitism, not something we had aspired to but something we fell into by default because of our dedication and studying of the occult. It was the man who told us we should infiltrate the church and told us if we do then we were to pervert theology, rituals and prayers. 

How was this to be done? Answer - by having language reinterpreted like having words, sentences and phrases redefined. I will give you this example, if 'person A' went up to 'person B' and said "I came out today" what would be the first thing to go through 'person Bs' mind? Or anyones' mind for that matter? Even if the sentence was not completed the first thought would be this person was declaring themselves to be a homosexual. The constant redefining and corruption of words, sentences, and phrases in a church service context with the likes of prayers during Mass would render them void.

This would happen because each parishioner would be in a situation of not knowing what they were specifically saying. If they were saying one word and having a guess or just making up what it was supposed to mean it would seem 'uncertain and not definite'. To have strings of these words in the sentences of hymns and prayers would cause doubt. Doubt in what they were saying, doubt in what they were singing, doubt in what they were thinking while they were doing both, which leads to doubt why they are there. If the purpose of going to church is to praise and honour God then doubt within church services will lead to doubt over what they are praising and honouring and thus doubt in God. Doubt is a powerful weapon which leaves no fingerprints as to where it came from and who was behind it.

That was the first and most important priority if we were to infiltrate the church, but there was another 'lesser' priority. That was to alienate future generations of Christians; the target was the children and minors. We were to 'interfere' with them, within about 2 seconds I went from confusion to knowing what he meant by interfere. He didn't say to establish relationships with them which would further lead to sexual activity, neither did he say to rape them but we were to abuse them. It wouldn't be purely for our sexual enjoyment, it would be to make them resentful and drive them away from the church. They would blame God, Jesus, all the priests and nuns, the parishioners, church employees, and the church as a whole for allowing the abuse to happen.

In all honesty the idea of molesting children did not at all appeal to me, but this is a war, an insurgency. At the age of 20 I had a sexual desire for older women, not younger ones. I asked what age are we looking at here? I was thinking that these girls might be wards of the state under church care or orphans or something similar. My face felt like it had been painted with plaster and had dried, it felt like stone. 

The man said "15", I assumed he we gauging us for a reaction but I couldn't tell because he wore a large pair of dark glasses that were near black. He then went to "14", I stood there thinking maybe... I had heard of 14 year olds being sexually active but it did not appeal to me. Then "13", I thought 'maybe' if the girl is quite physically developed. Then "10", I thought 'maybe if I was 15 I would'. As he was saying the ages in a quick sequence I gave a sideways glance to see Jerrum and Vijay. Their faces looked like stone like those faces on Easter Island and I suppose mine did too, it certainly felt like it. The next age stunned me, "5". It didn't stun me as to leave me in shock or want to run off, it was more of a case of 'Really? Is this necessary? Are we required to do that?

Jerrum then asked wouldn't fucking these kids cause obvious damage and leave marks? The man replied in a light handed manner; "No, no, no, you don't have to fuck them. You do things like make them suck your cock, you stick your fingers into them, you slap them in the face with your dick". He then went on to say that both boys and girls were to be targeted and then added "I like 7 year olds". Then there was a short pause and then he said in a jovial manner he was going home to do some housework, prepare ingredients for dinner and watch TV. He then walked off out of sight. Jerrum, Vijay and I still had stone faces; we didn't speak and walked off in separate directions. My stone face lasted till I got home; I can't accurately describe the feeling. It was like I was in the army as a corporal and had been spoken to by a general about a secret mission. But I was in an army and I was one of Satans' faithful soldiers and I had been told operational secrets by an elder.

The next day I returned to Villawood outside the post office at the same time, Vijay and Jerrum showed up as well within minutes of me arriving there. There was no "umm umm about yesterday ..umm what the..?" We knew what our obligations were because we are faithful servants of the Satan and his kingdom, we knew our aims and we knew we were to do everything to achieve them. This is a war and all tactics are fair, we have to win regardless of what we have to do because if we lose, we lose eternally. I imagine jihadi suicide bombers have the same mindset and I suppose Christian fanatics would be similar in that they know that on Judgment Day they will have to justify their life to God and explain what they did and didn't do and why. We were theistic Satanists not atheist goths in a role playing game.

There is a satanic etiquette in that you don't ask personal questions unless you have been invited to. 

The man who spoke to us yesterday never introduced himself to me at all, it was Jerrums' introducing me to him by saying "he is one of us" that was the 'all clear' to resume the conversation. No names were exchanged, while you might find this weird you have to look at it from a security point of view. 

If I were to be disgusted by what I had heard yesterday and decided to be 'a good moral upright citizen' and go to the police, well what could I tell them? No name, no address, no phone number and I couldn't give a proper description because he wore large dark glasses and a hat. You might say you could dob in Jerrum and Vijay. No, because I strongly doubt that Jerrum and Vijay were their actual names. In fact all those of the creed use nicknames that they either chose for themselves or were given to them by others. Real names are never used in case of someone finding Jesus and confessing all.

It was Jerrum who knew this man (extent unknown), and this man had been involved in Satanism for decades. I asked was he a priest, I was told he was involved in the church. No church was mentioned and neither was the position he held in the church and I didn't ask. I didn't ask any further questions regarding the man; if Jerrum knew him then all was alright as far as I'm concerned. There was a conversation regarding the pedophilia, Jerrum gave an overview of it in more detail. The pedophilia is part of a campaign to destroy the Catholic Church, it is part of a campaign that began in 1920 in Ireland. Ireland was in a near lawless state with the Irish Free State fighting the IRA and with skirmishes with the British by both. The Catholic Church was left alone by all sides and Satanists went into Ireland as priests or trainee priests because a priest from Ireland was usually welcomed by any country. The Irish Free State was a springboard to America and Northern Ireland was a springboard to England and throughout the British Empire; there does seem to be a level of organisation and co-ordination involved. It seemed to me that Jerrum was getting intimate knowledge of this from the man, but then again I don't know who else he had contact with and I didn't ask. 

But it went further, I was then told if you got into the priesthood you were not really expected to be in for more than 10 years as that was sufficient time to do damage and make an unblemished exit. A way to do this was to listen in on parishioner rumours about suspected perverts and encourage the perverts to work within the church community. But another way to find and use perverts was by the confessional, you would have pedophiles confessing their perversions and crimes. You would have them in a compromised position, and then you offer them a way to seek forgiveness by fighting their urges. You would have them working with children and the result would be obvious. The word gets around among the perverts and you have constant waves of molesters making their way to the church. Have we not had this revealed to us in recent times? You may have a rope and a pitchfork and want to rally up a mob to deal with satanic infiltrators in the Catholic Church and indeed all churches and all religions. But the sad fact is (well I suspect) that most, if not all of them have bailed out already. The perverts causing damage within the church community are most probably not Satanists, they are just perverts.

Part5 Healing Prayer


Healing Prayer
One's concept of God determines his method of approaching God, that is, the form of prayer. Believ­ing God to be a sort of enlarged human being or person, mysterious, arbitrary, and changeable, one would petition God for special fa­vors. But God as Principle is not reached in that manner. You do not ask favors of a principle. Would anyone implore the principle of mathematics, "Please solve this problem"? No, the principle is reached, understood, and demon­strated through understanding and applying the rule which expresses it. God is the divine Principle of His spiritual universe. His mani­festation is Christ, expressed in Godlike thinking and living. Every Godlike thought, word, or deed brings one into closer communion with the divine source or Principle, and that is the purpose and effect of true prayer.
A Christian Scientist awakened one morning to find herself under a spell of sickness. She was far from home and faced a heavy schedule of duties for the day. It seemed impossible to get up and get started. She lay there and began to turn to Christian Science for help. A passage from the textbook came to her (p. 390), "It is our ignorance of God, the divine Principle, which produces apparent discord, and the right understanding of Him restores harmony." Here, she realized, was both the cause of the trouble and its cure. Reaching out in thought with a sincere desire to understand God better, she saw that she had al­lowed erroneous thoughts to enter consciousness, and these seemed to hide God's presence from her. She had allowed herself to become irri­tated, upset, unhappy, and resent­ful, and she recognized the need to be healed of such wrong thinking. She studied the Bible and Science and Health and accepted the truths she found there. The mental picture of an irritated, resentful mor­tal disappeared in the light of the truth that man is the spiritual and perfect child of God. Her thinking became spiritually clear, and she was healed. All symptoms of physical disease disappeared. She was able to arise and carry out the duties of the day in perfect free­dom. She proved that it was igno­rance of God – ignoring God – which had produced the discord, and the right understanding of Him had indeed restored her natural harmony.

How to Pray
There are many ways to pray; do not think to confine prayer to a fixed form or formula. Deep, hon­est, spiritual desire is effective prayer, bringing one into the consciousness of God's ways. To adore the divine Being is effective prayer; through it the beliefs of evil disappear from consciousness. To recognize, acknowledge, and be grateful to God for blessings is ef­fective prayer; it opens the door to higher spiritual attainments. Obe­dience to God's revealed require­ments is prayer; the struggle to be and do good is prayer; the practice of humility, the striving for holi­ness, the abiding steadfast in hope and faith, patient improvement of our present talents, continued serv­ice to divine Love – these are all forms of true prayer because they all bring us closer to God. The highest prayer is an abiding reali­zation of God's allness and man's forever oneness with his divine Principle, as when Jesus declared, "I and my Father are one" (John 10:30).

Prayer for the World
There must be inspiration in prayer. There must be honest ex­pectancy of good. Repentance must accompany prayer, and re­form must follow. Self-justification has no place in Christian prayer; self-righteousness closes the door to the divine presence. True prayer starts with God, takes in the spiritual nature of man and the universe, and ends with God. It proceeds from the general to the particular. One is healed or saved when be recognizes that all are healed and saved. "The Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends" (Job 42:10). Prayer for others is expan­sive; it lifts thought above self; praying for oneself first and exclu­sively may darken thought and retard healing.   The beloved Founder of Christian Science made it a rule to pray daily for all man­kind. Could anyone so conscious of humanity's need and so sure of God's power to supply it do less? Not only did she pray for the whole world, but she also declared, "I also have faith that my prayer availeth" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 220). If all Christians and all Christian Scientists will pray as Jesus prayed and taught, if they will pray earnestly and devotedly in the light of the understanding of the true nature of God, and if they will let their lives attest their fidel­ity to God's ways, the millennium, my friends, may prove to be not so far off as generally believed.

New Heaven and Earth
My friends, the present age is a glorious one! Matter is definitely on the way out. Our inspired Leader declares, "We live in an age of Love's divine adventure to be All-in-all" (Miscellany, p. 158). As divine Love is understood as All-in-all, sickness, sin, and death will diminish and finally disap­pear. Christian Science extends to all men the invitation and oppor­tunity to join in this divine adven­ture, to find God to be what He really is: a present and practical help in all things, every man's first, last, and only real friend. Di­vine Science will lift you above the grossness and cruelty of atheism; its light will dispel the doubts and uncertainties of agnosticism; its spiritual power will destroy the idols of human will, physical health laws, material beliefs about God and the universe, and ignorance and superstition in religion. Here is the promise of Christian Science for the future (Science and Health, p. 568): "For victory over a single sin, we give thanks and magnify the Lord of Hosts. What shall we say of the mighty conquest over all sin? A louder song, sweeter than has ever before reached high heaven, now rises clearer and nearer to the great heart of Christ; for the accuser is not there, and Love sends forth her primal and everlasting strain."

Part4 Idolatry


Toward the end of the first cen­tury the first epistle of John was written to combat the growing menace of Gnosticism. This little book is outstanding in all Christian literature for its teachings of love and purity and fellowship with God. The letter ends with the simple counsel, "Little children, keep yourselves from idols." Obviously the idols John meant were the false teachings against which he had been warning them.

Idolatry may be the worship of material objects; it may be the worship of some manifestation of God in place of God Himself; or it may be the worship of a false conception of God in place of the true. The idols of modern civilization are different from the idols of an­cient paganism, and Christian idols may be more deceptive than heathen. One form of idol worship is the adulation of the human per­sonality. A human being may ex­press a high quality of spiritual goodness – or godliness – but he is not the creator of that goodness. Jesus, the Master, declared, "I can of mine own self do nothing" (John 5:30); "The Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works" (John 14:10).

Jesus and Christ
Jesus was not understood by many of the people of his time, especially his enemies. It is important to understand the dual na­ture of Christ Jesus, otherwise some of his statements about him­self seem contradictory and hard to understand. Christian Science dis­pels the mystery. It points out that Jesus was the name of the human man who was born, brought up, carried out his mission, and at last disappeared to material sense. The name was common among Hebrew boys and men.

But this man Jesus was different from all other men who have ever walked the earth. To state it sim­ply, he knew more about God than any man before or since; he lived what he knew, and he proved the practical power of spiritual under­standing in overcoming every type of human trouble – sin, danger, dis­ease, and even death itself. His friends and associates soon began to perceive that here, right in their midst, was a truly Godlike character. While it reached its highest expression in and through the man Jesus, it was not for him exclu­sively. Others began to share the divine understanding; their lives, too, became imbued and inspired with the divine nature, enabling them also to do great works of healing. For centuries the Jewish people had expected some such manifestation of godliness among them; earlier writers foretold its appearing as the Messiah, the Christ, the Coming One, Immanuel, or God with us. So when Jesus began to teach and heal, many de­vout Jews recognized that he was indeed bringing what they had been waiting for.

Christ, as defined in Science and Health (p. 583), is "The divine manifestation of God, which comes to the flesh to destroy incarnate error." Jesus' work, in revealing the power and presence of God on earth, was incomparable. He stands alone. So the word Christ was attached to him as a title. It stands for the Godlike nature which animated him, and must not be confused with Jesus as the name of the human person.

Dual Nature
Keeping in mind this dual na­ture, we see how inaccurate it is to say that Christ was born on Christ­mas Day, or that Christ was cruci­fied and died. It was Jesus who was born and later crucified and rose from the dead; the Christ, or true spiritual nature, was quite un­touched by these material changes, just as the quantity two remains unchanged when you erase the fig­ure 2 from the blackboard. 

The quantity two is a mental concep­tion; the figure 2 is a material symbol. The symbol is subject to change or erasure; the quantity is always the same because it is a mental conception.
Sometimes Jesus spoke of him­self as the son of man, meaning Jesus the son of Mary. At other times he called himself the Son of God, referring to the Christ or spiritual manifestation of God. Some of his later followers became con­fused on this point. He had said, "I and my Father are one" (John 10:30). 

Mrs. Eddy, in the text­book, explains that this means one in quality, not in quantity, "as a drop of water is one with the ocean" or "a "ray of light one with the sun" (see Science and Health 361:15-17). 

But the early Christians fell into the same error of which the Jews accused Jesus, the error of believing the man Jesus to be equal with God. After three hundred years it was definitely declared to be the creed of the Christian church that Jesus was God. This led to the idolatrous worship of the human personality and praying to Jesus as God.

One Mind versus Minds Many
The bedrock of true religion is the First Commandment – one God, infinite and good. One God means one Mind. Human belief would di­vide the one infinite Mind into many finite minds, distribute one to each person, encase it in a body of flesh, separate it completely from the one supreme intelligence, and let it go on from there operat­ing strictly on its own, progressing or retrogressing in good or evil, as the case might be, according to whatever standard or rule it sets up for itself.

The belief of a mind and reality apart from God is the one basic error. This error is responsible for all the troubles of mankind. The belief is that there are many minds, one to each person. Each so-called human mind turns in upon itself, tries to prove itself self-sufficient, develops its own will, and takes pride in its achievements. It calls itself "I" – spelled with a capital letter. This human egotism swells into a great seeming, and yet it is basically unreal and erroneous. The call of Christian Science is to un­cover this falsity, denounce it and cast it out, and return to the sim­ple basic facts as set forth in the First Commandment of Moses and demonstrated by Jesus the Christ with great power and signs follow­ing: one God, one Mind, one Prin­ciple, infinite, good, present, understandable, and demonstrable. The reflection or expression of the true God is seen in the real man and universe.

Spiritual Leadership
Mrs. Eddy's discovery of Chris­tian Science was the revelation to her of the truth of God and man: one Mind expressing itself in an infinitude of spiritual ideas. It in­cluded the uncovering of the claims of evil: many minds, knowing both evil and good, and the belief that there is real substance-matter out­side the infinitude of Spirit. Fi­nally, it included the demonstra­tion that the understanding of these facts will cure disease, dis­pel sin, and harmonize human existence.

The Discoverer of Christian Science is also the Founder of our church. The members of this church are governed by the divinely inspired rules in the Church Manual. The purpose of this organization is to restore to Christianity the lost element of healing; to heal and transform, but not to deify the human personality. Having seen how the worship of human personality had entered the early Christian church as a great mental and moral cloud, depriving Christians of spiritual understand­ing and power to heal, she resolved to keep it out of Christian Science. She declares: "Person is not in the question of Christian Science. Principle, instead of person, is next to our hearts, on our lips, and in our lives" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 135). 

She consistently exhorted her followers not to pursue her personality but to find her in her writings. While she demanded strictly that her place as Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science and author of its textbook should be recognized and acknowledged, this was not because of any desire for personal glory but because she understood that mortal mind would make its attack upon her discovery by first trying to discredit her as the discoverer. The discovery must stand because it is true; the dis­coverer must be acknowledged be­cause she was God's instrument.

Mrs. Eddy is no longer with us in person, but her revelation of man as the perfect expression of God remains to lead her followers on to clearer vision and unerring demonstration. There are no personal leaders in Christian Science churches, but there is no lack of leadership. The revealed Principle and rule of true being is studied and obeyed by students of Chris­tian Science and so provides spirit­ual leadership for all the churches and their members, leadership that is wise, positive, and effective. 

stranger going to a Christian Sci­ence church need have no concern as to whether or not he is getting in with the right people; he is get­ting in with the right Principle. He need not wonder who runs the church, for the true Church is spiritual, and Christian Scientists work to understand God's govern­ment and submit to it. "Again I repeat, person is not in the ques­tion of Christian Science" (Mis­cellaneous Writings, p. 135).

Part3 Consciousness Basic


Consciousness Basic
The primary fact of individual existence is consciousness, or awareness. This fact is self-evident but much overlooked; yet all ques­tions of life and God must be worked out in consciousness. In the realm of one's awareness dwell all the issues of being. But materialism claims there is something outside of consciousness, a realm of mindlessness, real, fixed, and unaffected by thinking, named matter. How and where does the materialist know this? Why, in his thinking! And intelligent thinking, my friends, is a flat con­tradiction of the claim of mind­lessness or matter! Consciousness is the basic reality, and no expla­nation is valid which loses sight of that fact.

Human life is entirely mental. That primary fact should be ob­vious to all. If this is a new con­cept to you, you only need to work with it to find it true. A person is rich or poor, sick or well, merry or gloomy, only as he believes himself to be. A young engineer was greatly helped and enlightened when he learned, through his study of Christian Science, that his pro­fession was essentially a mental one. 

He had supposed engineering was material because it dealt with steel, wood, concrete, and so on. But be came to see that an engineer deals with those things in thought, and he is a good engineer in the measure that he has good, sound, useful thoughts on the subject. This is true of every human voca­tion; whether you are a cook, a carpenter, musician, farmer, clerk, or storekeeper, your work is pri­marily mental. As you accustom yourself to this fact you will be ready for the next step, which is to learn that in the mental realm all true reality is spiritual and good, proceeding from the one infinite, divine Mind or Spirit. Thus we prove the statement in Science and Health (p. 269), 
"Metaphysics re­solves things into thoughts, and exchanges the objects of sense for the ideas of Soul."

If you believe your universe to be material, that is, outside of con­sciousness, the Christian ideal of God will remain a mystery to you. But when you see that your daily life is a call to mental dominion, if you have accepted the challenge to master yourself, if you are men­tally beset with suggestions of fear, pride, jealousy, and covetousness, if material remedies have failed to heal the body, if you long for moral strength and mental freedom, then you can begin right now to learn the truth about your mental uni­verse, to learn that there is one real Mind, universal, ever present, and divine; that it is creator, king, and ruler in the mental realm; that this divine Mind is your Mind here and now, and that your present understanding of this divine father brings you wisdom, inspiration, freedom, strength, and such a deeply entrenched peace that the storms of earth batter your ram­parts quite in vain.

God Acknowledged
Is it not clear to us, then, that there is a God, since there is something outside ourselves which moves us to good thoughts and deeds? And since God is inescapable, is it not the path of practical common sense to find out about God so that our relations with Him are on an intelligent footing?
Let us have an end of denying the obvious, of doubting things plainly seen and easily understood. Man is alive, he knows he is alive, and since he did not himself create the existence in which he finds himself he must be the result of the working of a higher power, a pri­mal intelligence, Life, or Mind. 

This primal intelligence or power cannot be matter, because matter is by definition mindless. The re­sults of scientific reasoning are here seen to coincide with primi­tive Christian teaching, for Jesus declared, "It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing" (John 6:63). So it is the divine Spirit, Mind, or Soul, which Jesus understood, demonstrated, and taught, which is now revealed in Christian Science as the true God.

"Salvation" is a fine old word which has lost some of its practical usefulness through taking on cer­tain specialized theological conno­tations. A dictionary tells us that salvation refers to being saved. From what do people need to be saved? Obviously, from sickness, danger, poverty, sin, and death. And when do they need to be saved? Well, right now, of course. So the same dictionary gives the Christian Science definition of "sal­vation" from Science and Health as, "Life, Truth, and Love understood and demonstrated as supreme over all; sin, sickness, and death destroyed" (Webster – later editions).

Note how the concept of salva­tion is colored by the concept of God that goes along with it. The belief of a God afar off, living up in the sky perhaps, who is to be met only after death (if at all), logically leads to the belief of sal­vation hereafter, the corollary of which is suffering and trouble in the present. On the other hand, the revelation of the true character of God as ever-present good, all-pervading divine Spirit and power, awakens thought to understand the powerlessness of sin and disease and to the present demonstration of eternal, harmonious Life.

Salvation is individual. There is no mass consciousness. Nations are saved as people are saved. Per­haps someone says, "There are many millions of people in the world, and if they have all got to be converted one by one it is going to take a long time." But the job is not so big as it seems, for it is not a case of converting millions but of saving only one – number one, in every case. If you and I will but take care of number one we may be amazed at the results. Have you ever exchanged your opinion about something for a better one and discovered to your surprise that many others feel the same about it as you now do?

A young man, new in the study of Christian Science, began to wish to be healed of smoking and drink­ing; but as his thoughts traveled down the vista of the future he saw himself attending social and busi­ness gatherings where everyone but he smoked and drank and had a good time! "No," he thought, "that would be too lonesome for happiness." But before long the desire for purity and freedom car­ried the day; with the help of a Christian Science practitioner he was healed of those enslaving ap­petites. To his surprise he found that there are large numbers of nonsmokers and nondrinkers, a great and glorious company of those who did not bow the knee to these twin idols of self-indulgence, and he was not at all lonesome in his newly won freedom.

Part2 Militant Atheism


Militant Atheism
One of the chief devils – or evils – at large in the world today is militant atheism, presenting itself as a philosophy or teaching suitable as a foundation for government and society, and organized to prop­agate itself and destroy religion. It is improbable that the propa­ganda of organized militant athe­ism has impressed itself to any great extent upon the minds of my listeners in this audience, but the very prominence which the teach­ing claims to occupy in world thought furnishes us a useful chal­lenge to examine our own beliefs and conclusions and to find and eliminate from our own lives any lurking elements of atheism or its wretched relations, agnosticism and idolatry. 

The atheistic individual claims there is no God; the agnostic says there may be a God, but you cannot know Him for sure; the idolater entertains false concepts of God and worships falsity in the name of truth. Christian Science comes to all types of human think­ing, as the Apostle Paul once went before the citizens of Athens, bear­ing the same God-inspired mes­sage, "Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you" (Acts 17:23).

A great many people do not need to be convinced that there is a God; to others the fact of a Su­preme Being is not so apparent – they wish to be shown. Such an attitude is permissible; it may even be commendable when honestly held. But how is the nonbeliever to be convinced of the reality of God? How is the doubter or skep­tic to be enlightened?

Learning of God
In considering the question how mortals may learn of God, suppose we ask: "How do we learn any­thing? 
How does a practical and successful individual arrive at re­liable conclusions in whatever ac­tivity he engages?" Mrs. Eddy writes in the textbook (p. 199), "The devotion of thought to an honest achievement makes the achievement possible." Successful results in business, advances in sci­entific discovery, improvements in government, in society, and in indi­vidual well-being, these all come about through the exercise of in­telligent thought, through observa­tion, reason, experience, revelation, and proof. 

May we not, then, ex­pect to achieve right conclusions in matters of religion by the same practical process? Is not true in­telligence able to penetrate the vast realm of spiritual knowledge and to reveal God's nature and man's relation to Him? Is knowl­edge of material things to become more and more important while at the same time we are limited to blind belief, speculation, and chance in the far more important matters of holiness, eternal salva­tion, and God's kingdom on earth?

One recognizes the truth of a new idea by its consistency with other ideas which he already knows, and has proved, to be true. So one may learn to know the true God as the divine origin and Prin­ciple of the spiritual good which he already claims and practices. Universe and Creator
In our efforts to discover the na­ture or character of God as the creator and ruler of the universe, let us consider first the nature of the universe we are trying to ac­count for. Suppose one looks about him and notes the earth, sky, and people, and says to him­self: "Here I am, a corporeal mor­tal, living in a material body, sub­ject to material conditions, and dependent upon them to preserve me. 

Where did it all start? Who or what is responsible?" Conceiving the universe to be material, he is obliged to find a material cause for it, and such material cause must be held responsible for all the disas­ters to which the material world seems subject – earthquake, fam­ines, disease, cruelty, and death. Such a concept of primal cause or God is blindly worshiped by pagans through rituals designed to placate His vengeance. This is pantheism, the opposite of Christianity.

But, instead of starting with earth, sky, and people, suppose one considers the charity and love which he feels in his heart, the wisdom and intelligence he sees expressed around him, the hope, faith, joy, and courage so vital to human life, so present and real to him who appreciates them. Now let him ask himself: "Where do these things originate? How is it that men are capable of such grand and noble ideals? What is it that will cause people to turn away wrath with gentleness, meet hatred with love, sacrifice themselves to help others, and face danger with confidence?" The only way to ac­count for these spiritual higher manifestations is to attribute them to a primal spiritual cause; so here we have the Christian or true con­cept of God as pure Spirit, the all-knowing divine Mind, the origin of all spiritual reality.

Belief and Conduct
We have, in our society today, a large number of men and women who seldom go to church; they make no profession of religion. If you were to ask them about God or the things of God they would probably say, "I don't know." And yet these people are honest in business; they are good citizens and good neighbors; they are intelligent and worthy. Why do they reject reli­gion? One reason is that while they conduct their daily lives and achieve whatever success comes to them through reason and intelli­gence, if they go to church on Sun­day it seems to them they are asked to put aside reason and intel­ligence and blindly believe with­out understanding what they are told about God. Their honesty makes them rebel against such in­consistency; so they let the religion go. 

Many people of this sort have found the Christian Science expla­nations of God, man, and universe completely satisfying and convincing, for human reason rightly di­rected and divine revelation are here seen to coincide. Such people who have turned to Christian Science find no conflict between their everyday duties and their service to God. On the contrary, they un­derstand and prove that the teach­ings of pure Christianity, revealed and demonstrated today in Chris­tian Science, are entirely practical and able to meet legitimate human needs in matters of health and work and in dealings with other men.

Christian Science: Its Triumph Over Atheism and Idolatry - 1958

It has been a while since I've posted, but I will post this even though Christian Science does not believe in the existance of Satan per se; it does believe in the evil of atheism and opposes it.
Atheism is in deed evil and is used in the service of Moloch.


Christian Science: Its Triumph Over Atheism and Idolatry - 1958

Robert S. Van Atta, C.S., of Rochester, New York
Member of the Board of Lectureship of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts

The free world can triumph over aggressive atheism by living the teachings of Christ Jesus more 

honestly, Robert S. Van Atta of Rochester, New York, told an aud­ience here Tuesday evening, Nov. 4th.
He said that the questions fac­ing modern thinkers demand an­swers which go far beyond the confines of human wisdom, that the spiritual understanding of God, and man's relation to Him – put into daily practice – is "the world's hope for freedom from uncertainty, terror and ignorance." The impact of such understanding on world thinking should never be underestimated, he added.
Currently on an extended tour as a member of the Christian Sci­ence Board of Lectureship, Mr. Van Atta spoke under the auspices of First Church of Christ, Scien­tist in their Church edifice at Spring Lane and Engle street. The lecturer was introduced by Mrs. Lorena Oberman of Tenafly, a former Reader in a Christian Sci­ence branch church.
The lecturer spoke substantially as follows:

The broadcast powers of evil, so conspicuous today, are challenging the forces of Christianity in a bid for final supremacy. We live in the midst of a mighty revolution. The complacency of the nineteenth century has been succeeded by the turmoil of the twentieth. Long-established values in morals and ethics have been discarded; widely accepted religious beliefs have been abandoned; physical science and medicine are being revolutionized; government, business, and matrimony are dragging their anchors.
These great changes are felt all over the world; they affect the life of every individual. There are none so lowly as to escape, none so re­mote as not to feel the turbulence of these times. In isolated corners of Africa – no longer the dark and unenlightened continent it used to be called – across the vast stretches of Asia, in the skyscrapers of American business and the centu­ries-old capitals of Europe, every­where there is disturbance, discon­tent, and turmoil.

Jesus' Remedy
Christ Jesus foresaw this violent upheaval in human affairs. He spoke of strife and warfare between nations, of hatred and infi­delity between men; he foretold famine, pestilence, and disaster; be warned that iniquity would abound and the love of many wax cold; false prophets would arise showing great signs and wonders, so as to deceive, if possible, the very elect. But in his great wisdom and love for mankind he also pointed out the protective action his followers are to take when this deluge threat­ens to engulf the world: "When these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh" (Luke 21:28).

The fact is that the rule for protection from all danger and the remedy for every evil situation have been available to the world for many centuries through the inspired Word of the Bible, and particularly through the teaching and example of Christ Jesus. Why, then, have men not used the remedy and prevented the evils? Be­cause the Bible teachings have not been interpreted and understood in their spiritual import. Surely so great a teacher as Jesus would not mean that we could expect protection and redemption merely by lift­ing up our heads literally. He must have referred to the need for lifting up our thinking to a higher spiritual and moral plane in order to understand God's power to redeem men from the famines of material sense, the pestilences of immorality, and the earth-shaking impact of revolutionary changes in human society.

"The People's Idea of God"
First of all, the need is to know God. Human life is the expression of the human beliefs about God. 

Someone has written, "The gods men worship write their names on their foreheads." Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, explains this action of human belief throughout her writings. Many years ago she delivered a sermon in Boston enti­tled, "The People's Idea of God; Its Effect on Health and Christianity." The very title is thought-provoking, and in the sermon this theme is developed and explained with great variety of treatment and in beauti­ful and dynamic prose. Near the end she states, "Thus it is that our ideas of divinity form our models of humanity" (The People's Idea of God, p. 14). In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the Christian Science textbook, she writes (p. 94), "The eastern empires and nations owe their false government to the misconceptions of Deity there prevalent." Of her­self she declares that her illnesses before she discovered Christian Science were due to the misinter­pretation of God's Word taught her in childhood (see Miscellaneous Writings 169:6-10).

Referring further to Mrs. Eddy's sermon, we read (The People's Idea of God, pp. 6, 7), "Periods and peoples are characterized by their highest or their lowest ideals, by their God and their devil." The present period and its peoples have been wonderfully blessed by the revelation of the true nature of Deity through the discovery of Christian Science. This teaching comes to the world as the "Com­forter" promised by Christ Jesus, which will lead mankind into all truth. It reveals God as infinite Love, never hateful or revengeful; as divine Mind or intelligence, con­ceiving or creating all that is real and good and nothing that is evil; as perfect Principle, not a change­able person; as self-existent and self-sustaining Life, not subject to disease or death: as all-inclusive Truth, whose light dispels error; as all-pervading Spirit excluding matter as unreal; as the one infi­nite Soul, unconfined in space, the life-giving center of all creation as the divine Father and Mother of man and the universe, always pres­ent to guide, guard, protect, and preserve His children.

The impact of these higher ideas of God upon the minds of men has been tremendous! The spiritual and perfect ideal of God and man, revealed to human consciousness, has healed all types of disease, re­formed sinners, lessened the expec­tation of death, and increased longevity. It has also stirred up latent beliefs in evil and brought them to the surface to be destroyed, as a muddy river bed is stirred to purify the stream. Thus we find the present age is characterized, not only by the higher idea of God, but also by more aggressive and subtle forms of evil.
