Revivals Pt 13: Social Justice Pt 1 – Activism & the Origins of Social Justice

I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (Isa 14:14)

Since the garden, satan has always purposed to be god of this world. He has aspired to destroy faith in the true God and replace Him on the throne of heaven to rule over God’s creation. God sent the great flood to destroy the evil world system satan managed to establish in the days of Noah, and throughout the centuries the evil one has relentlessly worked to rebuild it. The Philosopher Plato and occultists refer to it as “Atlantis,” more an ideal than a physical location, where,

“…the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and… every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually..” (Gen. 6:6).

Jesus prophesied that the days before the end of the world would be “as the days of Noah,” (Matt 24:37-39) and asked rhetorically if there would be faith on the earth in that final day when He returned (Lk. 18:8).

Many people, especially Christians see the biblical significance of the exponential advance of evil in the world today. But through twisted scripture and meticulously planted narratives there is division and confusion over how to interpret the times. (Rev. 12:15)

We’ve been looking at some of the revivalists of the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries and how they brought doctrines that returned Protestantism to (Mystery School) Roman Catholicism. The Catholic Church has advocated for Social Justice since officially embracing the concept in the 19th century. The last two Popes especially, Bendict XVI and Francis (named for the socially concerned Francis of Assisi) have repeatedly called for the carnal aspirations of the “common good” and help for the poor.

Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh [carnality] that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him… I pray for them: I pray not for the world [kosmos / orderly arrangement], but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine… They are not of the world [kosmos / orderly arrangement], even as I am not of the world. (Jn. 17:1-2, 9, 16)

This world is not our home.

In the next three articles I’m going to be looking at the integral role of prophetic timelines, Social Justice and the 19th-20th century Social Gospel in the development of satan’s aspired, carnal world empire (which will fail, Rev. 20:10).

My Activist Days

When I worked with GeoengineeringWatch (in my activist days) I was told by my fellow activists that once we reached “critical mass” in awareness that it would be impossible for them to continue spraying aerosols into the skies to modify the weather amidst a host of other agendas.

Well, that’s bogus.

Even though much of the public is now aware of weather modification there’s no end in sight. In fact, extreme weather, fires, floods and unnatural disasters (tornadoes! 😶) are increasing in frequency and intensity. How did Geoengineering awareness help the victims in Paradise, Australia, and more recently, what about the victims of the Lahaina “Wildfire?”

In my early years researching the who and why of “geoengineering,” I discovered the satanic beliefs of the elite controllers behind it all and learned that REBELLION was exactly what they wanted.

Well, the Bible calls rebellion a sin.

For rebellion is like the sin of divination, (1 Sam 15:23)

Barrabas was leading a rebellion.

When my questions were dismissed until I was finally silenced (they locked me out of the site) I realized I’d been an unwitting part of a “Controlled Opposition” movement.

*Life lesson: MOVEMENTS are controlled through a method known as the Principle of Opposites/ Hegelian Dialectic/ Problem-Reaction-Solution.

The Principle of Opposites

As I was sat listening to a sermon in a 501c3 Mega Church recently, I was struck by the speaker’s unconditional support of a particular warmongering atheistic nation, and blind eye turned to their Palestinian victims, many of whom are Christians. To be fair, there are a lot of very nice Christian people at that church. The music is professional, the staff sincere and many of the messages are even inspiring once you sift out the Zionism. But it struck me how the support of one people-group and blind eye turned toward another was no different than what happened in Hitler’s Reichskirche.

People today ask where the German church’s love for their Jewish neighbors was but they dismiss the (Zionist) church’s complete lack of love for the Palestinians. In the 1800s, men with black skin had been systematically dehumanized by one group, many claiming to be Christian, then were rescued by another group who were also professing Christians. And see, that’s a chief problem with the concept of Social Justice; that he god of this world, working through his hidden system of “social engineers,” dehumanizes, victimizes and exalts whoever serves his purpose at the time. The Hegelian dialectic, or Principle of Polarity or Opposites (also see Plato) is an integral part of occult religion. It is used to divide and steer public thought in a desired direction, and tragically, many undiscerning Christians go right along.

Do We Do Nothing?

We can look to Jesus as the role model for true Social Justice, as He lived in one of history’s most corrupt and unjust societies. Many of the people who followed Him hoped He would bring about the social change they were yearning for (Jn 6:15), but He never told people to protest or fight for social action. That’s because Jesus didn’t come to end poverty and injustice in this world. He came to destroy sin’s hold over mankind (Rom 4:25). That contrast was clearly demonstrated when the people were offered the choice between Jesus and Barrabas.

To be clear, scripture does tell us to help the poor and afflicted, orphans and widows.

“The righteous care about justice for the poor, but the wicked have no such concern” (Proverbs 29:7)

But when Jesus fed the multitudes bread and fish, He then taught them that their true needs were spiritual, and that He was the Bread of (spiritual) Life.

Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. (John 6:32)

Jesus saw the people’s earthly need and met it but did so with the singular purpose of revealing who He was and where true life is found.

The Revivalists were proponents of Social Justice establishing America as a “City on a Hill,” a light to the world in regard to equality and freedom in the name of Christianity. But is it?

Social Justice and the Social Gospel

Christians tend to see Social Justice as a Christian concept. That’s due in part to the prevalence of the Social Gospel in our culture. So, to start out, we need to distinguish between Social Justice and the Social Gospel,  two ideas that often intertwine blurring some important lines. Here are basic definitions:

Social Justice is a broad concept that can be secular or religious. On the secular side, it’s rooted in human rights and ethics. On the religious side it’s based on religious teachings or moral principles.

The Social Gospel is a Christian movement that arose in America during the 19th and 20th centuries. Taking the formal step of embracing and titling Social Justice as a Christian concept, it represents the idea of fixing social problems, reforming society in the name of Christianity. It involves promoting Christian values, teaching that Christianity should not only focus on personal salvation but also address societal injustice. 

The Social Gospel grew out of the secular idea of Social Justice. But as we’ll see, Social Justice is not secular at all.

The Revivalists championed Social Justice and aided in the development of the Social Gospel.

I’ll be going into the Social Gospel in part 2. In this part I’ll look at the origins of the concept of Social Justice.

The Origins of Social Justice

Modern ideas about Social Justice originated with the Greek Philosophers, men who were well versed in Mystery School thought.

Philosophy’s Occult Origins

Universities present philosophical ideas as being purely cerebral. This empirical deception has aided the idea that blending Philosophy with Christianity has produced a more intelligent Christianity, when in reality it furthered the blending one religion with another (Rev 17:5).

I’m not saying we shouldn’t study to shew ourselves approved unto God (2 Tim 2:15a), but we need think critically about what we learn and hold it against the authority of God’s Word, showing ourselves to be workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Tim 2:15b). Because, while Greek Philosophers formally dismissed religious thought, they often cited and expounded on Mystery School ideas. (ie. Plato’s “condition of the soul”). Here, look; this is from Bianca Dinkelaar’s research paper “Plato and the Language of Mysteries:”

“Despite Plato’s repeated criticism of both [myth] and mystery cults, Orphism/Pythagoreanism and the Eleusinian Mysteries feature frequently in his dialogues

Plato employs motifs and language associated with these cults… Plato has simply borrowed from religion what he could not achieve with philosophy alone: emotional appeal… Plato appears both to endorse and to disapprove of mystery cults, and… makes use of an established set of doctrines and linguistic registers to promote his own philosophical positions.” – Plato and the Language of Mysteries, Bianca M. Dinkelaar, University of Oxford, Faculty of Classics

Researcher David Livingstone echoes Dinkelaar’s findings.

“Scholars have entirely failed to recognize the presence of Kabbalistic doctrines in Plato because of their ignorance of the cult of the Magi. It was Franz Cumont, who established that the Greeks came into contact with “Magi”, called Magusseans, who in turn, were influenced by Babylonian doctrines.” – David Livingstone

Aristotle, as we know, was a student of Plato.

The Blending of Philosophical Social Justice with Christianity

Inspired by Aristotle’s writings, Mystic Roman Catholic Monk Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) brought Social Justice to Roman Catholicism.

Mystic Roman Catholic Monk Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274)

“Aristotle’s view of justice greatly influenced the medieval Christian philosopher St. Thomas Aquinas, who followed Aristotle in holding that the purpose of political authority is to promote the good of the community and that in a just society benefits would be distributed by social rank, with “more prominent” community members receiving correspondingly greater benefits. Aquinas’s philosophy and theology became official doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church in the 16th century, and his vision of justice eventually inspired the measured social reforms advocated by the church in the late 19th and early 20th centuries… –

You see the early blending of Christianity with Philosophy described here in Wikipedia’s definition of Social Justice.

“Social justice is justice in relation to a fair balance in the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society where individuals’ rights are recognized and protected… While concepts of social justice can be found in classical and Christian philosophical sources, from Plato and Aristotle to Augustine of Hippo[*] and Thomas Aquinas, the term social justice finds its earliest uses in the late 18th century…

Key in the development of the Social Gospel was Italian Jesuit scholar Luigi Taparelli (1793 – 1862). Inspired by Aquinas, Taparelli coined the term Social Justice in the 1840s.

Cheerful looking fellow…

“Luigi Taparelli SJ was an Italian JESUIT scholar of the Society of Jesus and counter-revolutionary who coined the term social justice…” Wikipedia

In the coining and definition of the term in the natural law social scientific treatise of Luigi Taparelli, in the early 1840s[👈]… Taparelli established the natural law principle that corresponded to the evangelical principle of brotherly love—i.e. social justice reflects the duty one has to one’s other self in the interdependent abstract unity of the human person in society…”  – Wikipedia

Inspired by Aquinas, Taparelli propounded a conservative vision of justice that legitimates aristocratic rule by grounding it in supposedly natural inequalities between individuals. Later in the 19th century, justice became a central theme of Roman Catholic social teaching…” –

“It is one of the ironies of history that the quintessentially “liberal” idea of “social justice,” as it was to become (in American terminology), should have been originated by an ardent conservative… Taparelli ….”  –

A quick reminder of who the Jesuits are.

Meme by Matt Procella

Here’s an excerpt from the Jesuit Oath.

“My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a Reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among the Protestants, generally to be a Protestant; and obtaining their confidence to seek even to preach from their pulpits and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and to descend so low as to become a Jew among the Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope.” – The Society of Jesus (Jesuits) Complete Oath of Extreme Induction (also here: Jesuit Oath)

And the distinctly Talmudic spirit to the oath.

“I do further promise and declare that I will, when opportunity presents, make and wage relentless war, secretly and openly, against all heretics, Protestants and Masons, as I am directed to do, to extirpate them from the face of the whole earth; and that I will spare neither age, sex nor condition, and that will hang, burn, waste, boil, flay, strangle, and bury alive these infamous heretics; rip up the stomachs and wombs of their women, and crush their infants’ heads against the walls in order to annihilate their execrable race. That when the same cannot be done openly I will secretly use the poisonous cup, the strangulation cord, the steel of the poniard, or the leaden bullet, regardless of the honour, rank, dignity or authority of the persons, whatever may be their condition in life, either public or private, as I at any time may be directed so to do by any agents of the Pope or Superior of the Brotherhood of the Holy Father of the Society of Jesus.” The Society of Jesus (Jesuits) Complete Oath of Extreme Induction

And No, They Do Not Mix

Many discerning ministries have argued the incompatibility of 19th-20th century Social Justice movements with Christianity.

The architects of Social Justice ideology were atheists and social revolutionaries, including the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937), the French postmodern philosopher Michel Foucault (1926-1984), and the Frankfurt School social theorist Herbert Marcuse (1898-1979). Because their starting point was secular atheism, ideological Social Justice and biblical Christianity are distinct and incompatible worldviews. They are opposed in their understanding of reality, power, authority, human identity, morality, epistemology and much more.” –

The echoes of these movements have shaped modern thought, having become so embedded into common language that they’re part of our modern worldview.

(Orthodox) Fr. Stephen Freeman of the website Ancient Faith offers these thoughts.

“In the first half of the 19th century, powerful religious movements swept away the institution of slavery (with a Civil War to boot in America) and began to lay the foundations for the prohibition of alcohol and women’s suffrage. The success of the first issue fed the imaginations of those who dreamed of the marriage of the Christian gospel and modern technology. As various Christian revivalist movements arose, so too did the notion of a progress towards the Kingdom of God

But, in truth, we have never had such control of the world that we could “build it” or permanently “change” it. We only live here – we do not own the place.” – Stephen Freeman, Ancient Faith Ministries, We Will Not Make the World a Better Place.

Scripture contains no promise that life on this earth will get better, nor are we directed to work toward that end; rather, it tells us that our hope is not found in this world at all.

I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.” (Jn 16:33)

What is Truth?

The Philosophers reasoned their way to any conclusion – any “truth” they desired, their premise being the Mystery School teaching that man is his own god and can create his own truth.

But scripture says there is only One Truth.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me…” (Jn 14:6)

For no one can lay a foundation other than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.  (1 Cor 3:11)

Rather than recognizing the true source of evil in the world, Social Justice again brings the Mystery School teaching that man can make the fallen world better through human effort through human philosophies.

See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits1 of the world, and not according to Christ.  (Col 2:8).

In Summary

OK, to sum it up: Enlightenment Philosophers picked up Plato and Aristotle’s occult-inspired ideas; the Roman Catholic Church embraced Enlightenment thought; and Enlightenment thought was brought into Protestantism. In the 1800s, the Roman Catholic church placed a formal emphasis on Social Justice, and soon afterward the Social Gospel arose as a Protestant Christian intellectual movement.

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is widely regarded as one of America’s most important and original philosophical theologians.

In part two we’ll look at how these ideas were introduced into the church.
