GOD.OF.THIS.EVIL.AGE. JEFF.IN V-4 N-9 65-0801M
129 Knowledge and civilization, and true Christianity has nothing in common. Civilization and true Christianity has not one thing in common. Civilization is by knowledge. We all know that. And knowledge is from Eden, proved it by what he preached in Eden, and knowledge causes death. Is that right? What caused death in the garden of Eden? Knowledge. Well, it can't be of God, so it's of the devil. Whew, was that a good one. Knowledge, science, education, is the greatest hindrance that God ever had. It is of the devil. I'll get some letters on that I know. I'm waiting for them.
130 Look what culture's got us into now. See? Look what it's done. Where we at? We've leaned to those things through our own understanding by our science. You say, "What about God, you think He's ignorance?" Oh, no. God will set up his own kind of civilization on earth when He takes it over. This is Satan's world; he's god now of his worldly scientific knowledge. But God will set His own kind of civilization up. It won't be a civilization like this; you just remember that. It won't be the kind of civilization we got today. No, no. It will be according to His Word and His purpose. For the god of this present evil age will be destroyed and his kingdom with him.
CHRIST.REVEALED.IN.HIS.OWN.WORD. JEFF.IN V-4 N-10 65-0822M
§ 83 I told you the other day; I say it again; that even civilization itself today is absolutely contrary to God. Civilization is contrary to God. Education is a million miles from Him. Science is a million miles. Science and education is trying to disprove God (See?) through theological seminaries, and schools, and rooms of science, and so forth.

§ 31 – 32 Civilization brings sin, always. When man begin to multiply upon the face of the earth, violence set in and God destroyed the world. Sin came by civilization, so your intellectuals will never get you back in fellowship with God. That's hard statement, but let me say this with all tolerance and not trying to support my ignorance, but I think the worse enemy that Jesus Christ ever had was education. Educate the world, you get a bunch of educated heathens and you can't do nothing with them.
SATAN'S.EDEN. JEFF.IN V-2 N-20 65-0829
76 – 78 Now, Satan, this deceiver, as spoke of in Matthew 24:24 with so much deceit. Now, we find that by his gospel program of knowledge: better education, higher ethics, civilization, and so forth, has bewitched the people that wants to serve God into believing his lie. Eve did not want to do that, but he showed her how it was more wisdom in it. She didn't know. She wanted to know. She didn't understand, but she wanted to understand. And God told her not to try to understand. How can I understand any of these things? I cannot understand them. I believe them. I don't have to understand them. God is faith and not understanding. We just believe what He said.
SATAN'S.EDEN. JEFF.IN V-2 N-20 65-0829
127-129 Then, Satan got Eve to listen to his gospel of theology, the gospel of knowledge, higher schooling, higher ethics, better civilization, higher education, and so forth, Then when he got the--her to stop and listen to him a minute (to his reasoning, which we are commanded to cast down) when he got her to listen to it... "Now, looky here. The church is so and so. It's been established for so long, that we're one of the oldest churches in the country. The mayor of the city goes..." No, I don't care what it is. See? If it's against God's Word, be against it. That's your enemy. Anything that's against the Word is your enemy. Everything that's for the Word is your brother. He's a part of you.

89 – 90 Now, keep the church in mind. She's kissing, and slopping, and mixing around in everything else but the Word. Let the devil, and education, and scientific searches, and so forth... When scientific education and everything is absolutely contrary to God. The whole system of civilization that we have now, is absolutely antichrist; educational system is antichrist; civilization is antichrist. It's against God. You say against civilization? God will have a civilization one of these days that won't have any death associated into it. This modern civilization come by Satan. I'll prove that to you, if the Lord willing tonight, out of the Bible. All these things are of Satan. Our new civilization will have none of this in it.
RAPTURE.THE. YUMA.AZ V-5 N-14 65-1204
52 Education, and the educational system, science, and civilization is of the devil. It's the devil's civilization. The Bible said so. And our civilization that's coming on will have nothing to do with this civilization at all. It's nothing of it at all. It'll be a different civilization. Into this civilization and this scientific world we got... More science--scientific we get, further we go into death, things, traps to kill, and everything. In that new civilization there'll be no death, no sickness, sorrow, or no pain. See? There won't be none in there. So this civilization will have to be destroyed, because it's of the devil.
