Paul's Passing Thoughts

Ever heard of the 97 Theses? And is There Anything More Brainwashed than a Protestant?

ppt-jpeg4Funny how the Protestants of Western culture fancy themselves as being grounded in objective scholarship. Because of our supposed acute intellect that enables the Bible to kiss logic, light shines from darkness wherever the world is blessed with our storied missionaries proclaiming the “gaaaaassspul.”

Yes, we are supposedly soooo unlike those mystical misfits found in Eastern culture and third world countries. And this is such a lie; perhaps the biggest ever perpetrated on mankind in all of human history. Few Protestants have a clue what the Reformation was really about, and the churches have deliberately rewritten church history to keep parishioners in the dark. Arguably, Protestantism is the most pathetic super-cult ever conceived because its participants don’t even know what their faith really teaches; at least good Hindus have an accurate mental grasp on their religious tenets. The same can be said for those pesky Islamic extremists that we despise.

Point in case: most Protestants haven’t even heard of the documents that really formed the foundation of the Protestant Reformation. We have been deliberately conditioned to believe that Martin Luther’s 95 Theses and the 5 Solas form the doctrinal foundation of the Reformation. It’s deliberate deception.

It supposedly goes without saying that the Reformation was a logical and objective return to the authority of Scripture; ie., “Sola Scriptura,” etc. This is all a steroidal outrageous lie; the exact opposite is true. The Reformation was sparked as a pushback against the Catholic Church’s move towards logical theology. In other words, the Catholic Church was founded on Augustinian Platonic (Gnostic) principles, but in the 13th century, it began moving more towards theological tenets based on logic and objectivism. And Martin Luther would have none of it.

Let me sort of simplify this as much as I can. It is the difference between two schools; one states that man cannot know reality, and the other states that he can. The former one draws a strict dichotomy between the material realm and the invisible realm. In this one; that is, the former, the material realm is an illusion, or subjective. Human experience cannot yield knowledge, and empiricism is a lie or useless epistemology. This usually yields some form of theology that deems all things material as evil/knowable and all things invisible as good/unknowable. In other words, man can ONLY know the material/evil world. I contend that this religion was first introduced in the garden as the “knowledge of good and evil.” I contend that in the creation account God was emphatic that His creation is “good” for this very reason; He knew what was coming.

Part and parcel with this philosophy that has dominated human history is the caste system. Caste systems advocate a knowledge strata that demands rulership over the world for the sake of the collective good. Some force or god from the invisible realm preordains wisemen who aid mankind in making the best of existence in the evil material world. These are Plato’s philosopher kings, and the Catholic Church was structured accordingly. Monks were the ones that separated themselves from the world as much as possible to obtain wisdom from the invisible realm, and then passed their edicts on to the popes for implementation. Usually by force.

The Catholic Church started moving away from this philosophy and more towards the philosophy of Aristotle who believed that the material world is a valid reality.

THIS ALONE IS WHAT SPARKED THE REFORMATION. The rest is a lie dressed in biblical garb.

Far obscured from seminaries and the churches is true knowledge concerning the foundational Reformation documents written by Martin Luther in 1517 and 1518. The two primary documents that form the foundation of the Reformation are the Heidelberg Disputation, and the 97 Theses also known as “Disputations Against Scholastic Theology.” This was 97 disputations against…get this…the use of logic and reason in theology. In fact, the 97 Theses were written one month before the 95 Theses. Also, it is commonly thought that the Heidelberg Disputation, penned 6 months after the 95 Theses, only contains 28 theological theses. No, it contains 12 that are philosophical for a total of 40. In both cases concerning these foundational documents, the major theme is Plato versus Aristotle. This is irrefutable.

And the ignorance of Protestants is no accident—it’s deliberate. What we are seeing today in the New Calvinist movement is a return to Protestantism’s Platonic/Gnostic roots. In a shocking display of blatant deception, New Calvinist leaders claim that hordes of people are being drawn to the movement because they desire a more intellectual faith.

The fact is that it appears intellectual while denying all logic and reason in matters of faith. Perhaps the best example of how this functions is the New Calvinist claim that “Christians” are still “sinners” while the Bible uses that word exclusively for the unregenerate at least 70 times. Words, being objective and meaning things, don’t really mean anything. Truth comes from whatever the philosopher kings say they mean.

Regardless of these modern Reformers claiming a more logical faith, the opposite is true…and they know it.
