The Gnostic Empire Strikes Back


By Reverend Mark Hunnemann

If you desire to serve Christ effectively in our generation, you MUST understand the essence of New Age thought. I've long known about New Age, but my studies in the paranormal have led me to a profound conviction that our planet is under terrible assault. December 7th was my mom's birthday, but we all know it as the day in 1941 "as a day of infamy." There were certain indicators that a Japanese attack was imminent but they were ignored...2,400 people died. There are much clearer indicators that ancient gnosticism is experiencing a global resurgence but they, too, are being ignored by most Christians. This attack is on the heart and soul of western civilization, and millions of casualties (eternal in nature) have already been sustained.

It is hard to believe that, given all of our modern advances, that we would fall prey to a mythological system which seemed to have gone into the dust-bin of history 1,500 years ago. Nevertheless these two movements resemble one another like two Siamese cats, sometimes even to the smallest detail. We don't wrestle primarily with flesh and blood but against the infernal general himself and his diabolical army; no wonder there is such similarity--the same massive evil intelligence is behind both. Diabolical influence on the earth in general, and human culture in particular, is Satan's standard operating procedure. We have this mistaken notion that demons sole focus is on individual temptation, accusation, and so on. Big mistake: they follow, and sometimes help create, the contours of human culture--national and international.  I have shied away from New Age conspiracy theories in the past because I knew it was beyond human capability to orchestrate such an elaborate global scheme. But I now realize there is an intelligence. (god of this world) capable of pulling it off--all played out on the space-time continuum on earth, but empowered and orchestrated in the paranormal realm.Let us now review the specific similarities between New Age and it's pagan, gnostic predecessor.

Cosmology: let us worship the great green one.This is where the New Age seems to have progressed far beyond the gnostic rejection of the material world. The goddess Gaia or Mother Earth (the bible says that God is our Father, but the earth is not our mother) gives to the universe its basic unity. We have now an earth goddess of witchcraft who is one with the universe, but not distinct from it. Remember how central Gen. 1-3 is to biblical theology...well all of that is being denied or inverted.So, like gnosticism, there is no given creational reality to which creatures must conform.Humans are inherently divine, and we are made up of divine energy, which allows us to be be co-creators. The idea is pantheism, with reincarnation as a result.Sounding like a gnostic master of old, Shirley MacLaine declares, "Birth into the physical is....a limitation of the spirit, and death of the physical is the return of the spirit to its proper domain."

Redemption: mind over matter, female over male. In Aquarian eschatology (end times) the ultimate incarnation of the antichrist may well be a woman.... As with the gnostics, contemporary New Age thinking sees the female principle as holding the keys to salvation. Many, including in the church, are calling for a return to goddess spirituality because of the alleged destructiveness of the male, patriarchal God of the bible. Much of radical feminism, which is largely responsible for the murder of over 50 million.babies since Roe, is borne along by the myth of the woman as the savior. They look to a mythical past (because it never happened) when there was comprehensive peace due to female dominance. The Jewish feminist theologian Rita Gross advocates the borrowing of Hindu traditions in order to effect the "the second coming of the goddess". (the bible is clear about role distinctions in the church, based on God's creation) As with gnostics, New Age teaching is intent on turning Gen.1-3 on its head.The Creator God and Adam were fools, and Eve is enlightened by Lucifer--who is emerging as the true spiritual leader under the New Age umbrella or rainbow.

Christology: Christ, a spiritual state and not a person. Schucman's "A Course in Miracles"  reveals that we are Christ's equals...being already perfect like Him. This is very similar to the gnostic gospel of Thomas where Jesus reveals to Thomas that he is not his master but His equal--twin brother. All we have to do is tap into this Christ consciousness. In New Age thinking, as with gnostics, the historical person and work of Jesus are superfluous.Christ is our higher self. If Irenaeus were alive today, he would certainly condemn New Age Christology as "an abyss of madness and of blasphemy against Christ."

Theology: "I am God in light." As with gnosticism, we all are divine. There is no separate Creator God. We are made of God energy, which means that God is impersonal and unknowable."God" is simply a term used to designate the cosmic energy that makes the universe turn. (This is precisely the lie that Satan enticed Adam and Eve with...becoming as gods) This idolatry has consequnces in sexuality (Rom.1:18-32)

Sexuality: the new androgynous humanity Both gnosticsim and New Age are monistic--they erase distinctions (like male and female, right and wrong, Creator and creation) and the result is that the model human is a perfect mix of feminine and masculine. The distinction between male and female is obliterated, and there logically follows the sexual perversion as seen in New Age ethics.The militant gay rights movement is indicative of this slide into darkness and societal chaos. Sexual perversion is notorious for bringing down civilizations. What was the most noble form of sexuality in ancient Greece...pedophilia. NAMBLA is now seeking to be recognized as part of the democratic ideal. We are playing with fire here and everybody is going to get burned.

Techniques for self-knowledge: going within via a passage to India As in gnosticism, New Age consciousness raising needs "spiritual technology." Instead of Jesus's historical ascension into heaven, the New Age speaks of how various techniques can help our souls or consciousness ascend into higher vibrational levels. The list of techniques used for self-realization and healing are endless. The promise of self-realization through self-knowledge is to be had through meditation.There is a growing sense of union with the universal divine. But, again, this is the old lie of the Devil. Since we cannot become like God, such procedures inevitably leads to the loss of any true identity or even possession.

The bottom line  There is an astounding similarity between the historical and theological parallels in gnostic and New Age thinking, which suggests a common generating source--Satan. All of these diverse elements that come under the New Age rainbow, are designed to be there.In its planetary vision and one-world philosophy, the New Age has far exceeded gnosticism. The gnostic empire is striking back after 1,500 years with renewed and added force. Satan is repeating himself in human history, and as Christians we need to recognize what is going on. This bottom line should alert Christians to take the New Age with utmost seriousness. Every believer needs to understand what is happening so that they don't get caught in one of its many traps, and to rethink their faith and witness in light of this pernicious heresy.This is not just another passing fad...I think this is Satan's last stand.

I am currently in the midst of the darkest nexus of supernatural evil I have ever encountered. The person I am helping has a husband who is a high ranking UN official--he is also possessed  She texted me tonight because, after picking him up from work, they both heard two very loud growls in their car, and they were petrified. Later tonight I read a personal message on Facebook which was threatening: "I have one thing to say--close your church or it will be closed for you." ...based on the Satanic symbols on her page, it would seem she is summoning demons against me. I will not live re-actively -all curses have been trumped by the blood of the Lamb and been declared so... I replied that I currently did not pastor a church, and that Jesus loved her and can liberate her from darkness--I was there if she ever wanted to talk. Love is the final apologetic to those caught in New-Age/occultic bondage.

By the blood of the Lamb, we WILL be victorious. However, it is up to us to have the compassion to understand Satan's schemes and warn others of it.  To God alone be the glory!

SPEAKING OF FRAUDS......

You have not pastored a churched since 1999. You were only there for ONE year.
The church you list as yours:
"Christ The King Ar Presbyterian Church"

6510 Old Oak Ridge Rd
Greensboro, NC 27410 336-665-9119

Is actually:

Northwest Church Of Christ is located at the address 6510 Old Oak Ridge Rd in Greensboro, North Carolina 27410.

They can be contacted via phone at (336) 605-0810 for hours and directions.

So, you hate Gays, Women, Jews, Muslims...and Reality Television Stars.

In logic, this is known as ad hominem (abusive) fallacy. You do not interact with my argument at all. I was the pastor at Christ the King for 10..TEN..years. I do not claim to be a pastor of a church now...it is always stated in PAST tense. I am good standing in my denomination. I do not HATE any of those people. I hate what they do...just as God does. I know and love many of these folks. Stop your shallow, irrelvant arguments

Rev Mark Hunnemann said...

Repent and believe on Jesus and you can be liberated from the demonic blinding you..attacking me and not interacting with my argument

Amen Reverand :D

Fred Brimstone said...

I do feel that it is obligatory to remind Rev. Hunnemann that certain Christian denominations can be rather "militant" as well.

I don't like seeing kids holding signs that read "God hates fags"
(Westboro Baptist Church). I realize you do not condone this rhetoric either, my point is that I don't feel that condemnation is the way. "Love all and let God do the judging" is my credo BUT...I for one DO hate NAMBLA members with a passion.

F.B.

I'm not attacking you.
I'm exposing a fraud.
That IS what this blog is for, isn't it?

So, if you're not an active Pastor, then you're not really REVEREND Mark.

You're just Mark.

PS: I did some internet searching.. You're buddy Michael Frisbee- was ordained by the "Universal Light Church."

Just for fun, I registered my dog, Sparky.

So, please call him REVEREND SPARKY. And REPENT to almighty DOG.

Blog on, Brother.. Blog on.

Oh, and before I forget..did you ask your daughter to repent for her illegitimate son?

Let's hear your thoughts on fornication.` What does Deuteronomy say about that?

HATER!

Billy Vanderbilt said...

To the Anonymous person. Identify yourself if you are going to slam a man of God. How dare you attack Rev. Mark. When you are ordained you are ordained for life. If you had any understanding of that you would know. Your attempt to disrail Rev. Marks post will not stop him. Your attacks on his personal life is out of line. Have you ever heard of Grace? The Frisbee's of this world are every where and including satan. I am proud to stand united with Rev Mark and will defend him with every once I have. Hate will get you know where. As Christians we are called to love even our enemies. If you claim to a Christian lay down your weapons.

Amen brother!

Another LIE exposed.

Mark, your name doesn't appear anywhere on this site:

Though you take credit for it on your website.

Billy Vanderbilt said...

Anonymous you are a stalker with no life it appears. I would suggest you ask God for forgiveness. As Christians we will pray for you. I know Rev Mark already has. Find something else to do like reading the Holy Bible.

Stephen Piersall said...

I too stand with Reverend Mark. Just to come out an attack a man of God is low class. I see all the bickering and name calling and attacks all the time on here, but sometimes it can go just too far. AND this has gone too far! As for Legion, I know what that means as a Demonologists. A Deliverance is in order for those willing to serve God and not the evil one. Jesus taught us to respect, love, and forgive. We all can make our world a better place if we will just follow the straight and narrow path God has intended for us. Attacking someone's credibility as "Anonymous" shows only that you are a bully and hide behind the computer screen afraid to show your face. I stand for God, Mark, Billy and anyone else who is a Christian. Don't let the legal rights you have with the demonic rule your life, and bow down before God and confess your sinful ways and after you truly repent you will feel the love and freedom God. Let's all act as identifiable responsible adults, and quit the childish behavior. Kirby, Is there anyway to moderate comments and just delete all that come across as "Anonymous"? But then again, as "Legion" you still can hide behind the keyboard. May God's truth find you all out who stoop this low.

Fred Brimstone said...

I agree with the comment moderation suggestion. If someone wishes to debate the specific subject matter outlined in this blog that's fine but this is obviously an extremely personal attack by someone with a vendetta. The comments about his family are highly inappropriate and the person making them seems to be emotionally disturbed IMO.

there is much hate out there if you do not buy into all the new age crap if you speak of GOD today the demons do attack

CHRISTIANS ARE EVIL.
Jesus wasn't.

Read the Bible? Are you KIDDING ME?

A conservative estimate puts the total number of brutal deaths in the 20 th century at more than 250 million. Of these, Muslims are responsible for less than 10 million deaths. Christians, or those coming from Christian backgrounds account for more than 200 million of these! The greatest death totals come from World War I (about 20 million, at least 90 % of which were inflicted by “Christians”) and World War II ( 90 million, at least 50% of which were inflicted by “Christians,” the majority of the rest occurring in the Far East). Given this grim history, it appears that we Europeans must all come to grips with the fact that Islamic civilization has actually been incomparably less brutal than Christian civilization. Did the Holocaust of over 6 million Jews occur out of the background of a Muslim Civilization?

Because, JESUS IS A JEW.

So don't tell me that all of you Lay-Ministers and self-proclaimed demonolgists are the ONLY ones who are capable of performing a Deliverance.

Jesus performed exorcisms.

He was a Jew. So, You're wrong.

Billy Vanderbilt said...

The only evil I see is you. You are being led astray by demonic thinking. Like I said before we are praying for you. You speak of the abyss. Repent before you find yourself in the abyss. I would suggest you read the Bible before you start talking about Jesus. You don't really have a clue do you. You are not proving anything here except you know nothing in which you are talking about. Go get help or better yet a deliverance.

Billy, how old are you?

Let's get one thing straight.

If you tell me to repent ONE MORE TIME, I will charge you with a hate crime.

Rev Mark Hunnemann said...

DEAR ANONYMOUS
First, you lie regarding my tenure at CTK--and don't apologize when corrected--and then you relentlessly press the personal attack. Mentioning my daughter and grandson accomplished what, in your eyes?
I have learned that reasoned persuasion does not work with folks like you who are full of hate, and minds darkened by demons.
Normally I would not respond but you have stated things which impugn my integrity/credibility. I was on the ADVISORY BOARD...not the Founding Board ,for the International Civil Rights Museum....that is why my name is not listed.
I am going to contact my attorney to discuss possible ramifications of your public lying about me---and others, who make a stand for truth. Before you accuse--get the facts straight.

Billy Vanderbilt said...

Amen Mark!!!! Hate crime?????? Bring it on!!!!

Christian Solider said...

REPENT ANONOMOYUS COWARD, Jesus will forgive you beg God to see you for the sinner you are and REPENT, beg his most holy forgivness and he will cast-out the demon who whispers in your ear and causes you to be consumed with hate

May God have mercy on your soul and bring you back to his flock, lost one you have our prayers
