This episode of Pneumatikos will explore the explosive growth of nihilism in post-western culture. What is, is right is the mantra of post-western nihilism. The content of western culture has been expertly removed without alarm or even feeble protest from the bewildered masses. People have been so manipulated by unrelenting pseudo gamesmanship that they are exhausted, bewildered, and wounded without relief. Traumatic wounding is the perfect vehicle for the introduction of greater trauma. People have been persuaded to compromise, truncate or give up their faith, and to be more receptive to other "beliefs." Empty morally vapid jargon rules the day. Perversity has been normalized as the official post-western social construct with nihilism as its consort. The Word of God is desperately needed in these desperate times.
Word Origin and History for nihilism =
1817, "the doctrine of negation" (in reference to religion or morals), fromGerman Nihilismus, from Latin nihil "nothing at all", coined byGerman philosopher Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi (1743-1819).
In philosophy,an extreme form of skepticism (1836). The political sense was first usedby German journalist Joseph von Görres (17761848). Turgenev used theRussian form of the word ( nigilizm) in "Fathers and Children" (1862) andclaimed to have invented it. With a capital N-, it refers to the Russianrevolutionary anarchism of the period 1860-1917, supposedly so calledbecause "nothing" that then existed found favor in their eyes.
Nihilism is the total rejection of established laws and institutions, total and absolute destructiveness,
especially toward the world atlarge and including oneself:
Nihilism from the Latin nihil, nothing) is a philosophical doctrine that suggests the negation of one or more putatively meaningful aspects of life. Most commonly, nihilism is presented in the form of existential nihilism, which argues that life is without objective meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value. Moral nihilists assert that morality does not inherently exist, and that any established moral values are abstractly contrived. Nihilism can also take epistemological or ontological/metaphysical forms, meaning respectively that, in some aspect, knowledge is not possible, or that reality does not actually exist.
Political nihilism, a branch of nihilism, follows the characteristic nihilist's rejection of non-rationalized or non-proven assertions; in this case the necessity of the most fundamental social and political structures, such as government, family, and law. An influential analysis of political nihilism is presented by Leo Strauss.
This episode of A Sound Heart will explore the crisis of faith in the west. Yes, we have the power elite who believe in Mars, Venus, and maybe Mammon (god of money), but little else. There is also the evil joy in manipulating the masses with sadistic lies and half-truths. Plundering the lives of the powerless is sport for the local self-appointed gods. However, the God above the god of this age is causing this present age to pass away. The God above the god(s) of this age will one day expose the darkness of this present age to his light. There is no political dialectic in the real world. Only in the minds of the hopelessly self-important ones.
We can save the west only if we return to God. We can save what is left of this culture if we collectively confess that we have sinned against God. Perhaps we have gone too far in our collective pride to pray for our lives! Darkness is never passive it is an active principle in the Word of God. Darkness is not racist or prejudiced. It is an active fire that eats everyone in its path. It thrives on pride that forgets to worship God and bow before his authority.
The west cannot afford to continue the game of think tank games. The west cannot continue the great lie of the elite. The manipulation of people for power politics will ultimately fail. Legal fiat is bulit upon a platform that is fading away because God has been scolded for being God , and dismissed as a needless fiction. Western nihilism and legal fiat are themselves amusing fictions. The ethos of biblical realism is gone, and those who have invested in the great lie will be visited with the consequences of their decisions.

This episode of Pneumatkos will explore the necessity of the biblical message. The world is in deep crisis. Wisdom has vanished and empty banal rhetoric has replaced truth. Manipulated viewpoint dominates the world, and the only one who offers sanity and wholeness is Theos. The world has played the game of Faust and sold its soul to the one who shatters souls. Biblical hope is founded upon the character of God.
