Mainstreaming Evil

The recent dedication ceremony for the Gotthard Base Tunnel constructed through the Swiss Alps included an array of demonic symbology such as a goat man surrounded by dancers cavorting as if in praise and a descending angel in the form of a baby in a bold public display of the decadent slide of society away from Christianity towards open affiliation with satanic rituals.

The 35 mile long tunnel connecting the Swiss cities of Erstfeld and Bodio traverses a mountain range that divides northern and southern Europe, and is a marvelous feat of engineering requiring some 17 years of construction. The tunnel will allow for relief on the busy Rotterdam–Basel–Genoa corridor as freight is shifted from truck transit to rail transit. As the world’s longest and deepest traffic tunnel, the project cost exceeded $12 billion but is expected to cut transit time on the Zurich–Lugano–Milan route by over an hour.

Aside from the magnitude of engineering, timing, and cost required to complete such a project, these factors were overshadowed by the bizarre dedication ceremony staged for the tunnel’s opening. Workers marched robotically to a drumbeat as if in some fascist parade followed by dancers clad only in underwear cavorting about and culminating in two women locked in a lesbian embrace.

1This was followed by the bizarre spectacle of a fallen angel with a huge baby’s head descending over five workers ostensibly meant to represent the five workers who perished during construction. The workers appear to be worshiping the fallen angel as a representation of Lucifer and his worldly followers.

2The outside portion of the ceremony was conducted under the peculiar image of a circle of eyes watching over dancers bowing down to a goat man. This all-seeing-eye image evokes the Illuminati symbol of control and surveillance by elites desiring to control the planet.

3The most egregious and disturbing part of the ceremony involved the appearance of a man dressed as a horned goat surrounded by dancers cavorting about paying him homage as if in worship.

4As deviant and aberrant as this ceremony was, there are those ready to explain all of this away as nothing more than an artistic interpretation invoking regional themes and the inability of common people to understand modern interpretive dance. Austin Ruse attempted to do so in an article for Breitbart News where he dismissed cries of satanic worship with the justification that these were all representative of themes from local Swiss folklore. The goat man was meant to represent Krampus, Demon of the Alps, who, following Saint Nicholas as he wanders around the town giving out gifts and money, attempts to scare the children. The descending angel represented the five workers who died during tunnel construction, and the mask worn by the angel is taken from Swiss Christmas tradition, as are all the other masks worn during the ceremony.

Ruse brushes all of this away by claiming we’re too stupid to understand interpretive dance, these are all themes taken from Swiss Christmas traditions, and the entire ceremony was stupid and boring anyway. From this, we’re supposed to conclude that some over-the-top artists strayed a bit off the beaten path attempting to incorporate symbology taken from Swiss folklore and Christmas traditions to produce a weird dedication ceremony that shouldn’t be taken literally. The entire article reminds me of the husband whose wife comes home to discover him in bed with another woman only to hear the husband defiantly ask if she is going to believe him or her lying eyes. I’m always inclined to believe my lying eyes over anyone attempting to convince me that I’m not seeing what I am plainly seeing. And, what I’m plainly seeing is Lucifer descending from Heaven to become a satanic goat man being worshiped by his followers.

The New Testament repeatedly warns Christians of a demonic outpouring in the last days. We are keenly aware that the progressives employ incrementalism to advance their agenda and that their agenda consistently opposes Christianity, so it should come as no surprise that atheists and progressives would become bold enough to publicly display their evil intentions while having a convenient explanation of its misunderstood innocence at the ready when the inevitable backlash occurs. Over the past several years, these public display have been much more subtle and confined to hand gestures masquerading as some form of gang sign as if to imply the gesturer is on intimate terms with criminal gangs, or smaller symbols buried as portions of an overall broader theme. Christians who have pointed out these demonic symbols have been ridiculed as pious zealots seeing Satan behind every rock or unhip nerds unable to grasp the finer etiquette of the cool crowd.

These subtle public displays have been increasingly cropping up in larger venues such as Superbowl halftime shows, the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics, and in movies and concerts. The progressives have been incrementally introducing their evil to people on a large scale to gain acceptance of it in the mainstream. By the time people realize the true meaning behind the display of these demonic themes, they have become accepted and imitated on a wide scale. In the case of the Gotthard Base Tunnel dedication ceremony, the entire incident will be played off as an artistic overreach, as is currently being done, and buried in the next news cycle with the lingering effect that the next display will not seem as egregious as this one because it will be more subtle. The damage is done as people are already used to seeing the demonic goat man worshiped by cavorting dancers, so the shock value will be eroded substantially the next time it is encountered by the public. A commentator will inevitably compare the next controversial display to that of the Gotthard Base Tunnel dedication ceremony and opine that it is not nearly so bad, and the public will shrug its shoulders in agreement as they absorb another display of demonic symbology.

The Old Testament tends to compress the history of the Israelites in an effort to capture the essence of God’s struggle with His chosen people and their inability to conform to His will. Several times the Old Testament documents Israel turning from God and God visiting punishment upon the Israelites for their wickedness, but a cursory reading often leaves one thinking these were fairly rapid transitions. In fact, these transitions away from God occurred much like America’s transition has occurred – gradually through incrementalism. The Israelites gradually abandoned an invisible God imagining Him to be incapable of affecting their lives and, therefore, nonexistent. They turned to false gods like Baal who offered temptations of the flesh in the form of temple prostitutes and the secular humanist siren call of doing whatever made them feel good. Secular humanism is still alive and thriving today throughout our culture as its morality gradually erodes.

Worship of false gods would have begun as secret societies forced underground to avoid persecution from the righteous as a contamination of Jewish religion. As their popularity grew, these secret societies would gradually emerge from the shadows to more and more open expression until the righteous were left as a minority awaiting God’s punishment and enduring ridicule from the wicked. God would eventually turn His back on Israel and leave them to be devoured by their enemies as punishment for turning away from His providence.

It is inconceivable to many Americans that God could possibly turn His back on this great nation founded upon Judeo-Christian principles, but the Old Testament clearly reveals His ability to turn away from His chosen people when they fell away from Him. It is not only possible for God to turn away from America and leave us to the mercy of our enemies, but very probable that He will do so once we reach a point of no return. The book of Revelation clearly describes the increase in blatant satanic activity that precedes the coming of Christ. Revelation 12:12 warns “Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”

The Apostle Paul warned in Romans 1:21-23 “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.” Paul is stating that the Gentiles’ glory of God was not keeping pace with their knowledge of God, and they resorted to creating an image of God in a pathetic attempt to glorify Him that neither glorified nor honored God, but merely demonstrated their own foolishness for ignoring the truth plainly before them.

It is natural for purity to be diluted through corruption, and it takes a great effort to restore purity by excising the corruption. In the case of man, corruption and sin dilute his purity, but only God has the power to restore purity by forgiving man of his sin when implored by man to do so. Man must first believe that God exists and that only He has the power to extend forgiveness and restore purity through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ.

Those who persist in their atheism risk committing the unpardonable sin, that of rejecting the Holy Spirit as it knocks on the heart. Continued rejection of the Holy Spirit will cause the Holy Spirit to depart and leave that person to his own folly. In Matthew 12:31-32, Jesus said “Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.”

Christians are exhorted to study God’s Word so as to be able to distinguish between the truth and the numerous subtle and clever lies which will persist in the last days. Anticipating a backlash against their demonic display at the Gotthard Base Tunnel dedication ceremony, the progressives are offering a number of explanations to deceive people into not trusting what they plainly saw with their own eyes. Watch the videos online and decide for yourself whether this was just a poorly conceived artistic expression or a demonic display. Those grounded in Biblical truth will have no problem distinguishing the reality of this situation while those unwilling to believe in God will resist all evidence that points to Him.
