Church Militant: In the wake of the (Amazon) Synod, all hell has broken loose. Tribulation and unrest of biblical magnitude have been unleashed on the earth. The timing is uncanny.


Unleashed: The Gates of Hell; The Power of Death.

In the months since the Synod, the advanced state of Western societal decay has been made utterly manifest. Violent mobs of anarchists and Marxists are swarming the streets of America’s urban cesspools to demand the annihilation of the nation as we know it, urging that the light of the “shining beacon on a hill” be forever extinguished in favor of a dictatorship of the proletariat.

Certain cities, such as the smoldering pile of communist ruin that is Portland, Oregon, have endured over two months (two months!) of successive nightly riots.

Revolt against God leads to strange and terrifying changes to society

It is becoming ever more evident that the greatest crisis in Western societies today is a crisis of religious and moral perceptions. In his highly acclaimed essay Revolt Against God: America’s Spiritual Despair, William Bennett argued that by most measures of civilised morality the United States had become an increasingly decadent society. He stated that the only way out of the moral and cultural quagmire was through a return to religion which would provide the basis for a rediscovery of virtue and moral vision. Bennett noted that social regression and exploding rates of crime in the United States were accompanied by “a disturbing reluctance in our time to talk seriously about matters spiritual and religious.” He added that perhaps all of this had something “to do with the modern sensibility’s profound discomfort with the language and the commandments of God.”

The moral failings of the West stem from a runaway pluralism which sees practically all beliefs and lifestyles as possessing equal moral value. Despite the many enigmas that punctuate its history, Western civilisation thrived on a consensus based on the Judeo-Christian vision whereby the vocation of the human person was seen as a call to freedom understood as the ability to carry out one’s duty towards God and neighbour.

The shape of the Western world today has been heavily influenced by certain intellectual currents which have sought to liberate human consciousness from all dependence upon God. In this setting, the human person is no longer recognised as a being made in the image and likeness of God, but is instead reduced to the status of an educated ape. In consequence of this reductionism, it is asserted that there is no created human nature that bespeaks an objective and universal moral law. As Solzhenitsyn pointed out in his famous Harvard address in 1978, it was this rebellion against God and the moral law that lay at the heart of the oppressive ideologies of recent centuries such as secular liberalism, communism and national socialism. Common to these ideologies is the belief that one can be good and virtuous without God.
