Modern Idol Worship

The first portion of this post is based on the Parshas HaShavua sermon of Rabbi Baruch Frankel, Aish HaTorah of Greater Washington, Shabbos August 24, 2019.

Idol worship refers to the attempt to MANIPULATE the world according to our will.
Idol worship in ancient times meant worshiping the sun, moon, stars, trees, statues, etc.
According to the rabbi, idol worship indeed produced the desired effect.

In a drought, the ancients knew how to cast a spell to make rain.

God warned the people not to indulge in idol worship, even though it worked.

The following portion of this blog is not based on Rabbi Frankel's remarks. 

The rabbi did not speculate about this but clearly idol worship continues to this day.

In the rudimentary form you see all the symbols we talk about here. We don’t need to go over them but they’re pervasive.

These symbols produce the desired effect in several ways.

One is that people pool their energy to create an egregore (collective projection) that serves their will in a manner that resembles a being with Godlike power.

Another is that they traumatize/kill innocents to release their terror chemicals. That becomes a force which they release into the demonic realm.

(They try to use the demons for their own ends.)

A third is that they flaunt the symbols and demand displays of obeisance using the symbols so that they can exercise ordinary intimidation.

But modern idol worship is primarily not Satanic. It is the worship of medical technology.

Medical technology (think broadly - genetic experiments, control of food, mind control) - produces controlled humans.

Control the humans, control what the humans do, control the world.

Manipulate the world to make it the way you want.

“Philanthropy” is another means of mass manipulation.

Using this line of thinking it becomes pretty easy to tell who is God-fearing (faith-driven) and who is an idol worshiper.

And in fact, many people can be “neutral” here, because they just aren’t either.

Just something to think about.
