Guest article by "Rich of Medford" (Rich Peterson) on "Global Warming" n/k/a "Climate Change"
I am presently in beautiful Roseburg, Oregon near Eugene and Cottage Grove where I also spoke a few years ago (2006). I'm speaking for a group of really nice people in Canyonville, Oregon, Lighted Way Ministries. I return to Michigan on Tuesday, April 22nd. Richard Peterson, known to most of us as "Rich of Medford" has prepared an article and kindly submitted it for publication here which I am more than honored to do. He would appreciate your "on topic" comments. So would I.
by Richard Peterson
Last month the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a report on the impacts of climate change. The message that civilization is on the brink of collapse ought to raise a sense of déjà vu in those familiar with the 1972 Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment materials, in part, because that is the IPCC’s template. The Stockholm Conference served to consolidate the environmental movement and provided it with a political voice.

From my archives: An important struggle for truth -- you now deserve to know
To my readers:
I've been computer archiving materials in my library and found this letter I sent to Huntington House on May 1, 1991 about a book based on untruths that was sensationalizing those in the Christian community needing honest information. I think the letter is basic to understanding many of the struggles I and others went through to get honest information on the New Age Movement out. It also shows the disinformation and profiteering attempts by others. Huntington House published Darrick Evenson's book NEW AGE MESSIAH IDENTIFIED under his pseudonym (false name) of "Troy Lawrence." Ministries such as Southwest Radio Church, Jack Van Impe, and many others sold the book in ignorance of Darrick Evenson's agenda. As this piece of correspondence tells much of the story, I thought I would publish the letter here in its entirety. I note that Darrick Evenson has since tried telling his own version of the events. Sandra Tanner wrote an important article about what transpired from her perspective. Even CRI (Christian Research Institute) did some reporting on Evenson's fraud.
Evenson [aka Troy Lawrence] is still at it as shown by this link.
This is an important part of the history of the struggle to properly expose the agenda of the New Age Movement and its accompanying religious apostasy. You deserve to know and for that reason, I am republishing it here. The letterhead is an old business address, one that I occupied in 1991.

I had no sooner finished the jury trial before Darrick Evenson called. He had called several times while the trial was in progress and had left phone numbers for various motels about the country and told me he was at libraries "doing research." He continually left messages pressing me for a decision on his manuscript. At the conclusion of the jury trial, which also ended in me contracting pneumonia, I was home one evening when I received a phone call from Darrick T. Evenson. Darrick said to me, "I know you can't endorse my manuscript and I know why. After much prayer, I have decided to withdraw the manuscript and abandon that project. Since I came to the Lord reading your book, I want to help you in anyway I can. Walter Martin unfairly attacked you and I have talked with Huntington House and they agree with me that it would be good to do a book about it."

My draft of words for tonight's event -- Socialism and the New Age Movement
Socialism and New Age beliefs are almost inextricably linked. Once folks are plugged into the New Age mindset, they come to view its components as religion -- a "New World Religion.A socialist economic system is based on the organizational precept of production for use, meaning the production of goods and services to directly satisfy economic demand and human needs where objects are valued based on their use-value or utility, as opposed to being structured upon the accumulation of capital and production for profit. In the traditional conception of a socialist economy, coordination, accounting and valuation would be performed in kind (using physical quantities), by a common physical magnitude, or by a direct measure of labor-time in place of financial calculation. Distribution of output is based on the principle of to each according to his contribution. The exact methods of resource allocation and valuation are the subject of debate within the broader socialist calculation debate.

Happy 2014 to all!
On the good side, today my alma mater, Michigan State University (part of my undergraduate education and now where my law school is established -- the former DCL now known as Michigan State University School of Law) WON THE ROSEBOWL! I'm not much of a sports fan, let alone football, but one can't help but get at least a little happy when their team wins.
Happy New Year to all!

Merry Christmas - Hope all survived the Ice Storm better than us
Given what happened to others, including the Tennessee - Arkansas tornados, we still can't complain. I am praying that God will spare us other extreme weather during this holiday season, especially for those traveling.
And, I am shamelessly praying that our power is soon restored. Hotels here are filled with refugees from the county to the north of ours which caught the ice storm far more severely than us -- and we caught it bad enough. A generous spirited client loaned us a generator which has warmed the house today along with the one lamp. I have Verizon 4 g portable internet which is what is enabling me to post now in our one lamp outlet along with the furnace connected. I had to make a rare use of my health club to take a badly needed shower and hair wash today. I'm not opening the deep freeze which hopefully will remain that during the power outage. Our turkey has been thawing since Saturday and is in the refrigerator which is not reconnected. I pray our power is restored as predicted, before 11:30 p.m. Christmas Eve.
At any rate, we are thankful for Jesus Christ and his birthing family enduring far more onerous and primitive conditions than those of which I complain today.
Merry Christmas to all and good night!

Javier Solana and Global Governance -- Back Again??!!
|Read the rest of the article by going to http://tinyurl.com/lddtlul Another link carrying it also is http://www.mareeg.com/globalizing-european-security/|
Well, I was really starting to suspect that Dr. Solana had decided that he was through with global politics, except in a professorial role. My "google alerts" brought this to my attention within the past 15 minutes of writing this to my readers. It appears to me from this and reading of his current roles in European Security organizations that he may have been carefully biding his time. He is suddenly making strong calls for "global governance" with a rearmed Europe being in a predominant role in his hoped for structures.
Now, I don't know what his motives are. It appears from my current perspective that Catherine Ashton may have been underestimated by those who may have perceived her job as a sinecure. Catherine Ashton has been given much credit for helping to achieve at least an interim international agreement with Iran over its nuclear development. That was a goal that had been elusive to Dr. Solana during his tenure which started with his representation of virtually the rest of the world to Iran which was announced by President George W. Bush on the rather auspicious date of June 6, 2006.
Catherine Ashton, it has been reported, has gone from "zero to hero." When she entered her job, it was not expected by her critics that she would long survive in the position. She retorted to them, "I'm a stayer, not a quitter." This past April Javier Solana was recently on a panel with the Brookings Institution relative to the Iranian nuclear crisis. He had lots of explanations as to why it fell through and expressed pessimism as to the efficacy of future negotiations with the Iranian foreign minister Jalili. Apparently Catherine Ashton had her successes with him and his successor. Many many former Solana aides (e.g. Robert Cooper) and applauders (e.g. the London Financial Times) have decided that now it appears that Catherine Ashton deserves the credit she was formerly and long denied.
I suspected that the "High Representative" position with the very high salary and combined military and foreign policy powers had been created for the benefit of Javier Solana who was expected to be the super-powerful European Union Foreign Minister prior to the referendum failures. Only after Solana announced he would retire and not seek the post did Ireland finally reluctant approve the Treaty. That was in 2009. Now 2014 is nigh and that will be the last year of Catherine Ashton's 5 year term. Does Javier Solana perhaps still want the job that had initially been created for him? Others who have aspired to jobs Mr. Solana wanted eventually went down to relative political obscurity. Witness Tony Blair and Joschka Fischer.
How will all of this sort out? I don't know, but watching it is sure fascinating.

Fascinating New Ager vs. New Ager debate occurring - Nuclear vs Anti-Nuclear
UPDATE: PRAYERS AND SUPPORT NEEDED FOR THE PHILIPPINES!!!!
"EARTHQUAKES IN DIVERS[E] PLACES AND UPON THE SEAS DISTRESS OF NATIONS"
There is a fascinating debate taking place on CNN tonight. It appears to feature many prominent New Agers debating each other on the Nuclear Power issue. I tend to agree more with the pro-nuclear than the anti-Nuclear elements. CNN tonight was playing the Sundance film of Pandora's Promise.
The pro-nuclear people claim it will reverse climate change. Of course, my readers know I am deeply skeptical about the human-caused climate change claims. However, it appears that there may be divisions in the New Age world between the "too many people" and "we must supply energy to the world's growing population" elements of the New Age Movement.
Ralph Nader and the Sierra Club are lined upon the side of "alternative energy", i.e. windpower, solar power, etc. Stewart Brand (Whole Earth Catalog), Newt Gingrich, and others are lined up on the "we need more nuclear power NOW side of the debate.
I must confess I found it refreshing to find New Agers of the obvious Environmental Movement division such as Amory Lovins, Helen Caldicott, Ralph Nader, the Sierra Club and others taken to task for propagandizing the world in general and USA in particular against nuclear power use.
My jury is still out on the nuclear safety issue. I tend to believe it may be necessary to supply necessary electricity and conveniences to struggling people in Third and Fourth World countries. I don't think "global warming" is a rationale. But I think those advocating for the need for expansion of nuclear power supplies may be correct. Even though the bulk of the debaters are New Agers, even a broken clock is right twice a day.
What do you think?

Major earthquake in Philippines; Economic earthquake in Washington -- the times, they appear apocalyptic
I don't know which faction I am angriest at: the "Affordable Health Care" with its forced contraception service payments being forced upon conscientious religious objectors and the fines for those unable to afford expensive health insurance (even those with same will have annual "donuts" of moneys that must be paid out of pocket first before insurance coverage kicks in) OR the TEA PARTY.
In my opinion, this may be a charade that inures to the benefit of the WORLD GOVERNMENT, Oooops, GLOBAL GOVERNANCE proponents.
Something ugly is brewing in the winds. I am hearing too much talk of "global currency reset." I have had panicked phone calls from clients re same and found plenty of discussion of same on the internet.
The slightly toned down G-20 websites are openly talking about a "TIME OF TRANSITION" or THE TRANSITION.
This ominous Washington possible default news has pushed to the back pages items that would otherwise be critical worldwide news: A devastating 7.2 earthquake in the Central Philippines. A devastating typhoon hit Japan the same day. Both happened yesterday. "Earthquakes in divers places" and/or "upon the seas distress of nations"?? Forgive me for even daring to think it!
This was the talk of what the New Agers hoped would happen to our government back in the early to later 1980s with "Harmonic Convergence," "Crystal Earth Papers," and Barbara Marx Hubbard's infamous THE BOOK OF CO-CREATION: THE BOOK OF REVELATION.
Jose Arguelles, a co-laborer with Barbara Marx Hubbard on creating events designed to CHANGE TIMES to a 13 month calendar died in Australia in 2011. The biographical books about his life tell us that he was raised a Lutheran but deeply immersed himself in the writings of Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and Alice Ann Bailey, inter alia, as an adult. He was the one who started the 2012 movement.
Since then all have been talking about EMERGENCE and THE SHIFT.
I don't know about the others. I pray I am wrong, but the events of October 2013 look like the long delayed events of the New Agers to me. Same sex marriages encouraged with additional leave days for military personnel entering into same?
I don't like to quote Theosophical writers such as Yeats, but for those who reject Book of Daniel, Book of Revelation plain warnings, how about Yeats' line: "WHAT STRANGE BEAST IS THIS, ITS HOUR COME ROUND AT LAST,SLOUCHES TOWARD BETHLEHEM WAITING TO BE BORN"??!!
This all looks apocalyptic to me. All ten virgins were sleeping. All ten virgins eventually woke up. Five had enough oil in their lamp to go meet their Lord, five did not.
Maybe it's high time to go "oil shopping."

Peggy Cuddy's Amazing New Age Movement Chart
Last week I interviewed Dennis Cuddy the second hour of my internet radio program. Dennis mentioned his mother Peggy who has been researching the New Age Movement for many years herself had developed a remarkable chart on the New Age Movement. Peggy Cuddy's independent research was one of the very first to be sent to my attention after my local work became nationally publicized in 1982. I had the pleasure of talking with Peggy Cuddy, Dennis' mother a few times. Dennis I have spoken with often and highly respect his work. Dennis sent me a copy of his mother's chart and I'm reproducing it here for you. Valuable work it is indeed! Enjoy! Click on the chart to enlarge them to full page. Feel free to reproduce them and pass them on to those in need of accurate information on the New Age Movement in its many stems and branches.

Matthew Fox Associates - MALIDOMA - EARTH RITUAL workshop this weekend September 13-15, 2013
Although both Randy England (Unicorn in the Sanctuary author) and I were both rudely challenged by Fr. Matt Pacwa's then defense of Matthew Fox who was subsequently excommunicated as a Roman Catholic priest in 1993 (about time!), Fox's New Age commitments were some of the deepest held in the Movement.
One of his associates was an African by the name of MALIDOMA. I learned this on my ongoing library review which now has included Matthew Fox's autobiographical work, CONFESSIONS OF A POST-DENOMINATIONAL PRIEST.
"Malidoma" had up until now largely escaped my radar. Thankfully, he had not escaped CARRIE TOMKO's. Carrie left our world on April 6, 2009, but her work lives on in her valuable archives. You may access them by going to http://www.carrietomko.blogspot.com.
Malidoma, an African promoting African style earth worship and paganism was once a professor at the University of Michigan, only approximately 40 miles from my home. My own work is archived there at the Bentley Historical Library.
The Promise Keepers Movement active in the 1990s and beyond drew heavily on the Men's Movement, a New Age operation largely shepherded by Robert Bly. Robert Bly worked closely, as did Matthew Fox, with Malidoma. Fox's autobiography CONFESSIONS opens with accounts of his conversations with Malidoma (pages 10-11, HarperSanFrancisco paperback edition, 1997)/
As that was then, I decided to see what was going with Malidoma now, and I found plenty.
This is from Carrie Tomko's accounts of this gang which includes Fox, Joanna Macy, John Seed, Earth Spirit Rising Council of Elders,
IMAGO AND CULTIVATING CONNECTIONS
are sponsoring the EarthSpirit Rising Conference once again.
2005 EarthSpirit Rising Conference comes to Cincinnati
Cultivating Connections and Imago are pleased to annouce that Cincinnati's own Xavier University will host EarthSpirit Rising: A Conference on Ecology, Spirituality, and Community. We live in a time of crisis-crisis of Earth, crisis of Spirit, and crisis of Community. Many of us have come to recognize that these crises are not separate, but interpenetrating dimensions that must be addressed as a whole. It is only through understanding the deep interconnections between Earth, Spirit, and Community that we will be able to transform this time of crisis into a time of hope.
EarthSpirit Rising 2005 explores the connections between ecology and spirituality through the lens of community. We recognize that without community and collective action our hope for a more ecologically sustainable and spiritually rich world will never be realized.
Matthew Fox and John Seed will be back again for encore performances. No mention of the Council of All Beings this time, though. Maybe they have decided to tone down the channeling. I wonder what Matthew Fox's "9 C's of Education" are? They have some ritual tucked into Malidoma Some presentation. They are going to talk about "Dagara cosmology"...as opposed to Catholic cosmology, one wonders?The organizers are described here. Notice down there on the bottom the Brueggeman Center for Dialogue at Xavier University? That magical word "dialogue" that exempts Catholic facilities from teaching the faith...Check out the "Conference Related Links". Foundation for Shamanic Studies???????????????They are offering a Youth Conference for ages 8-14. Wonder what sort of program is going to fall under "creative expressions"? Would you trust your kids to a bunch of conference organizers who provided a lesson in channeling called Council of All Beings at a previous EarthSpirit Rising Conference?They are having an EarthSpirit Rising Council of Earth Elders. The Earth Elders want to arrange the "transformation of human-earth relations." Did you know you can have relations with a planet? Stick with the nuns and they will guide you through "these times of great danger and great hope"...with the help of their "ally" gleaned from the Council of All Beings held at a previous EarthSpirit Rising Conference, perhaps.Look at the lineup for the "Experiential Sessions"! It would take an entire day to explore all of these presenters. I'm intrigued by the "Sacred Body, Sacred Community" presentation "inspired by nature mystics." It includes "chants and circle dances that create a deep, connecting, and healing experience of being fully in our bodies, connecting with each other in a deeply reverent way, and celebrating the mutual blessing that we are to one another and the rest of the Earth Community."
Looks like it is taking place in a Catholic University again.
It also looks like the nuns haven't shied away from sponsoring it.
IMAGO is an "earth centered" organization located near Cincinnati, Ohio. Undoubtedly, it has close links with another Catholic New Age organization that Ohioans turned me onto starting in 1982: Yup, just checked and Grailville's facebook page makes that close relationship clear!
This brings me to a main point of my concern with the New Age spiritualities, the Environmental Movement, etc., ad nauseum, where they are clearly headed is in no small part, mandatory Earth worship. This is a clear theological line that we dare not cross. The much maligned biblical Book of Revelation contains critical language in chapter 14:
6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
The message of this movement of which Matthew Fox (the theologian, not the actor by the same name) are such a prominent part is that we worship the earth, we worship the seas, we worship ourselves; we worship our our Ancestors (prominently advocated by Malidoma); we worship "the universe," we worship even Lucifer -- we worship everything and everybody but the Good Lord who created it.
The New Age Movement has many rabbit holes for us to wander down, but they all lead to potential ruin and desolation. There is no advantage -- either here or in the hereafter -- to abandon our Creator by worshipping all else and ourselves as "co-evolutionists."
This very weekend "Malidoma" is conducting a form of Earth Worship workshop which they call "Earth Ritual." My prescription? Be aware, but don't participate.
