The Age of Kali

THE AGE OF KALI
Corruption is in the world through lust says the Apostle Peter (2Pet. 1:4); lust for wealth, lust for power, lust for fame, lust for knowledge, and above all, the lust of sexual desire, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes (1 Jn. 2:16).
We live in the age of Kali, when sexual sin abounds. Modesty, Chastity, Virginity, and Purity have all but been banished from the western world. Immodesty, sensuality, nudity, and promiscuity are in the ascendant; bikinis, bare legs, bare arms, bare mid-rifts, bosoms and cleavages, low tops, tight trousers, short skirts, and tattoos give ample witness to the new paganism. One doesn’t need strip clubs, and peepshows, and porn mags, and adult films, because sensuality pervades the culture; in the media, in the schools and universities, in the work-place, on the streets, in parks, on beaches. And this easily wanders into our thoughts, and dreams, without us consciously desiring it, giving the Devil his opportunity.
Sex is widely promoted by the media, and schools too have their compulsory “sex education”. “Sex is the mysticism of a materialist society” as Muggeridge acutely observed. We must all ensure that we have “good sex” and very importantly “healthy sex”, and lots of sex, even apparently well into our 70’s (Octogenarian sex anyone?). Because without a fully developed sex life we can’t be properly integrated human beings. So it goes.
But this is an illusion. For the age of Kali is the age of illusion. She performs the dance of death, which brings destruction and chaos. She is the dark one who wears her necklace and belt of shrunken severed heads. The problem with sexual desire outside its proper God-given context of marriage and the procreation of children is that it is essentially selfish; it is only, at the end of the day, about self-gratification, and all too easily unleashes the darker side of human nature (Alas the Marquis de Sade was an honest man.)
It is precisely because of the breakdown of the Christian moral order that the “permissive society” has come about. The Christian clergy are, by and large, indifferent to this. Indeed, through their cowardice they have contributed considerably to its success. And so there abounds fornication, marital breakdown and divorce, pornography and erotica, homosexualism, transgenderism (a form of transvestitism), contraception, abortion, “in vitro fertilization”, paedophilia and rape. This is the dismal reality of the “permissive society”, the illusion of sexual freedom. And if people are currently ending up in prison for under-age sex and paedophilia, know for certain that one day in the not too distant future it’ll be perfectly legal and totally acceptable. Already the LGBT are hard at work lobbying for “man-boy” love. Hey, sex is good for children, don’t you know, as long as it’s with “a responsible caring adult”. I tell you it’s coming our way. Yet do Christians take a stand when the LGBT are invited into Church schools, Catholic and Anglican? Do they make any meaningful challenge to the sexualisation of children through “sex education classes”? In a word, No! Courage and moral conviction are at an all-time low. The record of bishops here is just as abysmal as the record of bishops in Nazi Germany, both Catholic and Protestant, when faced with the moral challenge. Generally, silence and acquiescence. Apart from their role as bureaucrats (their primary concern) they are effectively useless. “Put not your trust in princes….for there is no help in them (p.145: v 2)
The flesh lusts against the Spirit, says St. Paul (Gal 5:17), and both are contrary to each other. The lusts and desires of the flesh, and the fulfilling thereof, make us children of wrath (Eph. 2: 3). Two laws are at war within us, says the Apostle; the law of God and the law of sin. Only God’s grace through the Crucified One can deliver us from the law of sin; and the Virgin Mary’s prayers. For it is the Age of Mary, when those who would fight for purity must seek refuge with, and fight with Mary.
The Devil is the original “cross-dresser”, He is Kali, the Dark One, who leads souls to their doom, as she performs her naked, or near naked dance, which is the dance of death.
Sensuality and selfish desire will become more and more demonic, and will wreak awful havoc in human life, riding tandem with the industrial genocide of babies in the womb, “abortion”. People will become increasingly dehumanized through “sex, drugs, rock’n’roll” and media pulp, thereby releasing a veritable tsunami of supernatural evil. The world will be infested with demons, and all forms of sin against God and human life will characterize society and will be tolerated and practiced as being the most normal thing in the world, stimulating the vilest passions and unleashing a barrage of crime never before experienced. The holy estate of marriage will virtually cease to exist. For this is precisely the Devil’s aim: the destruction of marriage and the family through fornication, divorce, homosexualism, contraception, IVF and abortion. The State will take over all aspects of life, from the “production” and indoctrination of children, to the definition of morality and truth, to the euthanasing of the old, the sick, and the “non-productive”. Aided by a Devil pleasing feminist movement, the LGBT, a cultural Neo-Marxism, and a degenerate Christianity, the State will replace the family and will set itself up in the place of God. Fornication, which embraces all forms of sexual sin, will lead, as it always has done, to idolatry.
The world has heard the Gospel and refused it. It has returned to its own vomit, the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire (2Pet. 2: 22). The Christian churches in the West have lost or are losing the faith once delivered to the saints (Jude 3). They are the Church of Laodicea in St. John’ vision (Rev 3: 14-22): spiritually blind, bankrupt, naked, and lukewarm. They will be spat out of Christ’s mouth unless they repent, return to zeal and “buy white garments” (rediscover their purity). The recent decision by the Church of Scotland to endorse sodomite and lesbian clergy reveals the desperate state of things. Other churches, including the Roman Church, are going or have gone the same way. The phallus has replaced the Cross, the flesh has triumphed over the spirit. Soon enough, the Abomination of Desolation, the ultimate blasphemy, will be set up in the midst of so-called Christian congregations who, knowingly or unknowingly, will engage in explicit worship of Satan; all in the name of “dialogue”, or “aggiornamento”, or “diversity” or “pluralism” or “development of doctrine”, or “ a new anthropology” (The Roman Catholic Bishop of Northampton’s recent nonsense) and other such slogans. Indeed, the age of Kali is the age of illusion.
What can true Christians do against all this? 1) Hold fast to the Holy Scriptures as the infallible Word of God. 2) Pray the Psalms and the Rosary daily. 3) Fast regularly and live simply. 4) Stop watching T.V. (I don’t say films, because some films are good, but be discriminating!). 5) Take responsibility for their own faith, instead of relying on the clergy. 6)“Be sober, be vigilant, because the Devil prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for whom he may devour” (1Peter 5: v.8). And above all 7) “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world…..For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world” (1 Jn 2: 15-16)
“Whosoever is a friend of the world is the enemy of God” (James 4: v.4)
