Debunking Dizdar’s “The Black Awakening”:
“The New McCarthyism of the Christian Conspiracy Fringe” or “Does the Bible Justify the Means? Dizdar, Discord, & Division in the Body of Christ”
Since the inception of the internet the world has changed at a frantic pace, allowing for people to connect and receive information with an ease before unseen. And this includes not just good information, but bad, not just truth, but lies, and also the ability for people of a conspiratorial mindset (Christian or non) to find each other in ways that previously were difficult. This has allowed for people to easily network or rally behind causes, but also for internet-based teachers to arise, some good and some bad. What formerly would have been isolated teachers many would never have heard of, now have the potential through the web to gather followings of large numbers of people, and teach them their opinions; this also has a good and bad side. It’s easy to become trendy, easy to go unchallenged, easy to become popular, and easy for the public to be misled and mistaught. Ideas spread like wildfire among internet communities, and among Christians, there are no fixed overseers to regulate and speak against false teachings, raised out of the body or otherwise, and in fact many do not attend a local fellowship either where a pastor might correct false teachings. Of those who do attend church, among the Christian conspiracy online community, many would not share some of the ideas they learn online with their local pastor or elders for review, as in many churches the fear of ostracization for strange ideas is a real one. And this is the online jungle of the Christian fringe community, an unregulated anarchy where anyone may teach and have their opinion, without any real accountability to anyone but God.
This is the world I partake in freely, and have for a number of years, my friends are here, and I have made enemies also. Truth is a relative concept in the Christian fringe online community, juggling topics of conspiracy, prophecy, spiritual warfare, and the paranormal. I exist in this world in ministry, and have seen good come out of it. Ideas in the online Christian fringe do not stay there, but spread into local churches. This in itself is not a bad thing, it is an experimental ministerial laboratory that produces new Biblical teachings relevant for keeping up with the times, and the culture of the lost, which local churches can benefit from receiving and considering for application in the local body. The internet can allow for small ministries to help many people who might not otherwise be reached by local churches. In itself the online Christian community is not a bad thing.
Unfortunately there is a dark side to it also. People who are in a local body, or who may otherwise not be in fellowship locally, both have a tendency to rally behind certain teachers, and believe their claims whatever they may be, without discernment. Popularity can be based on sensationalism, personality, and too often unverifiable qualifications, self-appointed expertise, or rumors; without knowing these teachers or people personally. It’s certain that recommendations from those who seem prominent, and desire for acceptance on online forums etc., can lead to peer pressure, following the example of those deemed prominent, which all factors heavily into what people are prone to believe. This is in contrast to comparing teachings against the Bible and leaning on more mature Christians for guidance and balance in what they choose to believe, or reject as false.
With the internet the world has changed in such a way that a teaching coming from one man who is prominent online, can now quickly spread to 1000s of Christians in an afternoon, be accepted as truth and reality, and almost just as quickly, be proliferated to 1000s more in larger online communities. And of these Christians who are in local fellowships, whether it be after weeks or months or years, this teaching has been empowered through the internet to spread into local fellowships across the country. It could be spread to only a handful of people in the church, or permeate through to entire church, even the pastor. This is the present state of affairs in the Christian church, and it is a two-edged sword. Whereas good teachings have the potential to edify the church across the country or across the globe, false teachings equally have a chance to spread. False teachings often spread with more potency due to their false nature, as they are designed by the enemy to infiltrate local bodies, with the potential for great harm.
The internet sprang into popularity around 1994, and the cyber-population has been growing ever since, so that now 18 years later, 2.2 billion people, a third of the Earth’s population, use the internet for it’s various services. The numbers of the online Christian fringe are unknown, but what is for certain is that for 18 years these numbers have grown. For 18 years in this online Christian community there have been no set shepherds to guard against false Christian teachings, false Christian prophecy, and for 18 years it has been a free-for-all, with the barest of self-regulation arising from internally. Make no mistake that for 18 years the Christian fringe community has been and is a conglomeration of true and false teachings, true and false prophecy, despite it collectively being composed of Christians. What complicates matters is that most of those of prominence, teachers and prophets in the online Christian fringe community, have both good and false teachings, true and false prophecy, good works and ministries which do help many people, and preach the gospel, despite what they do wrong. As such, there has almost become an unspoken rule online that to criticize or speak up against other Christians in this community is forbidden, whether their teachings or prophecies, or their ministry practices that are set as an example for others, as to publicly criticize could hinder the spread of the gospel, reduce someone’s effectiveness, and so is thought unloving. Also fellowship is an issue, as harmony is maintained through tolerance, and fear of retaliation, as in this community with no accountability there is also a risk of ostracization, being blacklisted, being slandered, openly criticized with ad hominem attacks, etc. The net result is relativism, ignoring biblical admonishments, and mass numbers of Christians are being led astray into false teaching, false prophecy, with all the harm that can entail to them or others, too often resulting in spiritual oppression.
When these false teachings and false prophecy trickle into local Christian fellowships the results can vary, perhaps only affecting a few people who hold some false beliefs that are mostly harmless. But other false teachings and false prophecy, if entered into a local fellowship and left unchecked, are potentially more harmful. They can lead to unloving un-Christ-like attitudes permeating the Body, causing serious divisions, discord, disunity, and even spiritual oppression and hatred. In worst case scenarios this could potentially result in criminal or illegal behavior, and even violence – as the further people wander from the truth, and more spiritual oppression they come under, and the greater their number, the more likely it is they may stop behaving as Christians and develop cultic or worldly behaviors and standards for conduct.
Having been in the online Christian fringe community for several years, I would currently say they are 3 main teachings to be aware of and guarded against, which are potentially the most destructive to a local Christian fellowship:
This has resulted in one abductee, who believed she was a nephilim/hybrid, being told by a pastor that she could not be saved in Jesus Christ, denied the Gospel, was eternally damned, because of her supposed nephilim bloodline. She was a multi-generational abductee whose mother told her that her father was an alien. This has also resulted in that a Christian who is a former abductee, set free from the experience in his life, was ostracized in local fellowship, by the very person who helped lead him to Christ, labeled as a nephilim/hybrid, due to peculiarities in his behavior that in fact were the result of mild autism. The fruit of this false teaching is fear, paranoia, and prejudice, even hatred, against those who become labeled as Modern nephilim/hybrids. Another bad fruit is biblically unsound teaching and denial of the Gospel to the lost.
This targeting of vulnerable lost people in need of help and outreach, and the targeting of Christians to be treated prejudicially within local fellowships, all began with a false prophetic teaching of a “return of the nephilim” in the 1990s. Another result of this teaching over the last 20 years is or growing numbers of reports have sprung up of people having paranormal experiences of seeing or being attacked by “nephilim/hybrids”, and this phenomena has become it’s own subcategory of the paranormal, right alongside “alien abduction”, “bigfoot”, “ghosts”, “fairies”, etc. However, it seems to mainly be Christians who are experience paranormal encounters with “Modern nephilim hybrids”.
The false prophecy teachings surrounding this topic have also grown more elaborate and popular over the past 20 years, straying further away from biblical truth, objective proof or evidence, and what is known of science, to become solely based on the reports of those who have paranormal experiences, which are known to be deceptive and often illusionary experiences caused by fallen angels. An incorrect biblical understanding of “alien abduction” coupled with a “return of the nephilim” has resulted in a false prophecy teaching, which through gaining popularity, has resulted in the enemy providing paranormal attacks which can serve as “testimonial evidence” to the reality of “modern nephilim hybrids”. This in turn has made “alien abductees” and other similar victims to become targets of prejudicial treatment from Christians. The ultimate sad irony in this is that the online Christian fringe originally set out to help “alien abductees” who the local church was not helping, often dismissing them as crazy, rather than presenting them with biblical answers and help with spiritual warfare. But now “alien abductees” who need help from Christians, have been turned against, and have become targets for prejudice and ostracization by many in the online Christian fringe, as well as local churches corrupted with these false teachings. Now the danger is that a local church, through corruption from the online Christian fringe, instead of dismissing abductees as crazy, are taking them entirely seriously, but in the perverted context of these false teachings, are labeling “alien abductees” themselves as a flesh and blood enemy, as a nephilim/hybrid.
For Christians unaffected by these false teachings, the paranormal experiences and resulting delusions present in an alien abductee are just part-and-parcel of why and how an alien abductee (or other deceived victim) needs to be reached out to with the love of Jesus Christ, the truth of the Bible, and the freedom they can receive through spiritual warfare in the Lord’s mercy and compassion.
But for Christians affected by these false teachings, the paranormal experiences and resulting delusions (of claiming to be a hybrid, as is prevalent) present in an alien abductee have been turned into reasons to reject, fear, ostracize, and otherwise treat with prejudice a lost person who needs help and salvation. Worse still, is that other Christians, brothers and sisters in Christ, who happen to be former abductees, are also being targeted with the same fear, rejection, ostracization, and prejudice. When these false teachings infiltrate a local church, it has the potential to cause harm to members of the body and the church as a whole, through divisions, discord, and disunity. Belief in these false teachings, precipitates and is seen to result in paranormal experiences. False unbiblical beliefs can allow legal grounds for spiritual attacks, and this is precisely what is being witnessed. These beliefs can cause spiritual oppression on those whose beliefs are infected with these false teachings.
In worst case scenarios these false beliefs could potentially result in criminal or illegal behavior, such as the legal discrimination one abductee experienced, mainly based on symptoms of his autism, against him as someone with a developmental disability. There is talk even of violence against nephilim/hybrids in the online Christian fringe, of killing them, and thoughts or plans along these lines could easily spread into a local fellowship with disastrous results, even in brother betraying brother unto death. Paranoia (biblically seen as a symptom of known demonization) often accompanies and is seen in those holding these false beliefs, and is another risk factor for potential violence.
The bottom line fallacy of this false nephilim/hybrid teaching is ignorance of the truth of the Bible, that “we wrestle not against flesh and blood” (Eph 6:12) and ignorance that Satan’s devices always try, through deception and false beliefs, to circumvent this Biblical reality. Rather than seeing alien abductees and other victims as victims, the result of the nephilim/hybrid teaching is that Christians come to see other Christians as “flesh and blood” enemies. The victims are not given help, love, and compassion, but rather become “flesh and blood” enemies to wrestle against, but this is not the truth of Biblical reality. Furthermore, the message is one of fear and prejudice, rejection and hate of one’s enemies, rather than the clear command of Jesus Christ to “love your enemies”, “treat others as you would want to be treated” and ‘love the brethren as I have loved you’.
True Christian maturity is born out of obedience to the commandment to love. Receiving this message of prejudice and hate can cause stunted growth and maturity, and this has great potential to harm and divide local Christian fellowships, even where Christians who are former abductees are not present. This teaching requires the acceptance of the principle or mindset that there are acceptable exceptions to obedience to the command of Jesus Christ to love. As such this nephilim/hybrid false teaching results in a mindset that has great potential to expand into finding other acceptable exceptions to not love, esp. the brethren in Christ, in disobedience to the direct command of Jesus Christ.
(Note: Though conjecture, with the currently increasing secular belief in alien visitation, and growing numbers of alien abductees, it is possible that if the alien/UFO deception does play a role in end times events, these numbers will continue to increase, as the belief in aliens/UFOs can contribute to the spiritual legal grounds allowing for the paranormal alien abduction experience. Though based on conjecture, it is possible that the number of former alien abductees who are Christians will increase, and that this false nephilim/hybrid teaching could become a much more widespread problem for local Christian fellowships, as more Christians who are former abductees become part of local fellowships.)
[Part 2] MPD/SRA Infiltrators – other people are being labeled as deceptive and dangerous demoniacs who secretly serve Satan, whilst maintaining a more normal usual public personality. Some of these people are the worst victims out of those previously mentioned, being childhood SRA/RA victims who report having multiple personalities. But also falling into this category are others, including those who claim to have Multiple Personality Disorder, or Dissociative Identity Disorder.
Drawing from secular psychology, these people are believed to have developed multiple personalities from a splitting of the soul into fragments in childhood, and that this is a natural result of undergoing severe abuse. Some of these personalities, which are said to be a natural part of the person’s own fragmented soul, are thought to be demonized, and remain hidden most of the time, but could theoretically get into control of the person at any time. Severe childhood abuse resulting in development of these personalities is usually an essential part of secular understanding of the condition.
While there is no doubt that there are *some* people who report symptoms which fit the description of this model, there is question within the Christian research community specializing in “MPD” as to just what a correct model should look like of understanding the condition. Research in this field is still developing and the process of learning how to help these people is still uncertain. Treatment methodologies combining therapy and deliverance ministry do vary, as do models for understanding what “MPD” is. The Christian research on this topic, maintaining demonization is usually present, is distinct from the secular research community, which formally holds no such belief.
There is controversy about SRA and MPD, as some people have reported developing “false memories” of SRA, sometimes under hypnosis, later realizing they were false, even after making harmful accusations against family which were denied by the family. On the other hand, there are also reports of “repressed memories” of extreme childhood abuse later re-surfacing in adulthood, which are verifiable with objective evidence, even enough to hold up in court. There have been cases where people seem to have only developed “MPD” after they were suggestively exposed to the diagnosis in adulthood, from Christian or secular sources, sometimes related to hypnosis. Some memories of those who claim “MPD” and SRA are clearly paranormal experiences, involving demonic or reptilian (alien) creatures. In a survey of over 1000 survivors of SRA, Mind Control, and other extreme abuse, the reported experiences included: 38% marriage to Satan, 6% UFO abduction, 24% children surveyed mentioned aliens, 21-24% children reported they were taken right out of school for mind control, and then returned to the classroom (same is reported with alien abductions), 21% mind control training to develop psychic powers (similar in alien abduction) and 15% time travel in the experiences (abductees report this also). And 53% report demon possession in their experiences. Many cases are obviously paranormal in nature, and similar to alien abduction, involving aliens or UFOs. But on the other hand, there are real Satanic cult groups, and so natural (not paranormal) SRA is also possible. Also MPD is reported to have developed in cases in which the extreme abuse was from family, natural and not paranormal in origin, and SRA/RA was not involved.
The net result is that there are several options possible for anyone who remembers SRA or similar experiences: it may have been real people, it may have been paranormal, it may be “false memories” developed from hypnosis or suggestibility, it may be “repressed memories” of actual events, whether caused by real people, or purely paranormal events in origin.
There are several possibilities for those who claim they have “MPD”; they may have it from childhood, they may have developed “MPD” as an adult after being exposed to the suggestion of having MPD, such as from hypnosis, or otherwise, or they may not have it at all. Those with MPD do not necessarily have to have had SRA or similar experiences in their background. People who claim to have MPD may have it, or may not, but even if they do, there are still major questions in the Christian research field just as to what MPD actually is, what causes it, how it works, how much of it is demonic, and how to effectively treat or cure it.
Despite the overlap of SRA with MPD, not all people with MPD have experienced SRA or similar experiences with an overtly inherent demonic aspect. Bottom line, the many variables and various possibilities with individuals who claim MPD *or* SRA necessitate individualized evaluation and help particular to their specific situation. Making broad generalizations would inherently be fraught with peril as to accuracy.
On this backdrop, the teachings of a man named Russ Dizdar have gained popularity and been accepted as authoritative among the online Christian fringe community. Dizdar has worked helping those with SRA/MPD to receive deliverance, him having a deliverance ministry. He offers online teachings for how to do deliverance and on spiritual warfare. These teachings are not very questionable, and as to teaching spiritual warfare and deliverance, it seems to have a solid biblical basis and be helpful to the general population.
However, as told in his book, at some point he self-admittedly began to listen to those he worked with who have SRA/MPD, who he knew were actively manifesting demons, or demonized personalities. The demonized personalities, or demons speaking through these people, started giving Dizdar information on present-day reality, and a plan of future destruction and chaos, to be implemented by those with SRA/MPD, which he calls “The Black Awakening”. The description of the future that he was given is that, besides those who actually do have SRA/MPD, that also many normal people also have SRA/MPD and do not realize it, but in fact have hidden demonized personalities which have been trained to kill, and that at a future point mass murder and mayhem will take place as these people are activated by demonic forces, to kill everyone. These people could be anyone, such as friends, family, church members, or co-workers. Additionally, that present reality is these people in large numbers are up to no good, and infiltrating the Christian church. Dizdar believed this information about the future told to him by those actively manifesting demons. At this point Dizdar started to teach and spread false prophecy, a tale about the future, given to him by manifested demons or demonized personalities. Knowing that the Bible teaches that demons are liars, and that we should be wary against false prophecy, these prophecies should not have been believed, and the information about present reality also should have not been believed.
A contributing factor may have simply been the immersion in working with so many victims of SRA/MPD. Hearing similar stories from several demonized personalities, or demons manifesting, in multiple SRA/MPD victims, drawing from their similar experiences (including paranormal ones), could have made the information seem more believable. But of course if this standard was used in other fields of paranormal research, then we would have to believe in 1000s of alien races visiting the Earth and abducting people, time-travel, ghosts, elves, fairies, etc. When a paranormal-related topic, one which involves the presence of demons or fallen angels, is your field of ministry, and you hear many victims’ stories, and the topic surrounds and permeates your life, it is easy to develop a skewed perception of reality. If you are not very careful to stick to biblical truth and maintain a guard up against deception, it can be easy to have your niche bubble of perception expand to seem to cover all of reality.
Another contributing factor may have been Russ being physically attacked by a demon manifesting in an SRA/MPD victim, resulting in injury, and also receiving threats against his family from victims of SRA/MPD, which are things that could compromise anyone’s objectivity and emotions towards their clientele. There is fear and paranoia prevalent in Russ’ book… as he shares what he imagines of future survivalist scenarios of hiding out with guns, unable to trust but a select proven few, in danger of friends, neighbors, and co-workers revealing themselves to be SRA/MPD “Supersoldiers” as they spontaneously drop their masks, show their formerly hidden demonized personalities, as they start hunting people down in the streets… this all could be taken as evidence of a compromised objectivity and emotional state, in result from traumatization from personal attack and injury, amidst an atmosphere of threats of more of the same. In practicing spiritual warfare, trauma, such as being violently attacked, in itself can become a focal point for demonic oppression on the victim, if the event is not processed in a Godly and biblical way, fully forgiving the attacker and letting go of the past experience. This can be a difficult thing to do while still seeming to be immersed in a threat that seems to be ongoing, with similar possibilities for real dangers in the present. It is easy for fear, paranoia, extremism, and even anger, bitterness or hatred, to set in if judgment has been clouded through personal injury and threats, resulting in compromised objectivity and emotional state.
Dizdar has tried to help SRA/MPD victims and teach and encourage others to do the same, and no doubt has helped many people in his ministry. But it is also clear that his teachings have been corrupted with false prophecy, information about present reality and the future, that was received from demons. Unfortunately this has also resulted in many in the online Christian fringe community having a skewed perception of present reality and beliefs about the future, as well as having developed a distorted perception of SRA and MPD, and demonization.
The numbers that Dizdar teaches are problematic, as according to his online radio show his current figure is 10 million people who have SRA and MPD and are demoniac infiltrators. As the
A survey of more objective medical research (from the late 80s) shows a consensus of only 25-50% of MPD patients reporting SRA, which would be indicative that there were and are alternate valid and more prevalent causes for MPD than just SRA. Those alternate causes behind 50-75% of MPD cases have not simply ceased to exist since the 80s, and likely are still prevalent causes. Research as recent as 2002 only indicates .01-1% of the population to have MPD in the general population. At 1% this roughly would figure to only 1 out of 100 people having MPD, and 1 out of 200-400 having both MPD and SRA. If that still seems a startlingly high figure, keep in mind the minimum figure is 1 out of 10,000 people having MPD, which would mean only 1 out of 20,000 to 40,000 people both have MPD and have experienced SRA. These figures also mean, regardless of the prevalence of MPD in the general population, that the majority of people with MPD (50-75%) have not experienced SRA, and so it is not fair to assume that a person who has MPD has been a victim of SRA. As such Dizdar’s figures of 1 out of 30 people being SRA/MPD demoniacs are greatly exaggerated, inaccurate, and sensationalistic. These teachings are encouraging unfounded prejudice against those with MPD. The difference between the worldview of a person who believes 1/30 people are secretly SRA/MPD demoniacs waiting to kill them, and the worldview of a person who believes 1/20,000-1/40,000 people have MPD and are victims of SRA, cannot be understated. A divergence in belief that is this far from actual reality is delusional, and likely to cause spiritual harm and other more psychological harm in those who believe this delusion. The divergence of Dizdar’s numbers from the numbers of the objective medical research field clearly indicate these teachings to be false.
As such it is convenient that a key component of Dizdar’s teachings is that most of these people are undiagnosed and unaware that they have SRA/MPD, unaware they are demonized, and most of the time they seem like normal people – that co-workers, friends, family, and church members which you know could be the 1/30, but no one knows who. Their existence is claimed, but there is no proof, and of course the objective medical research field has no way to count their numbers. This is an argument from absence that requires believers of Dizdar to make a leap of faith, to believe these people exist although there is no proof of their existence. If believed, this line of thinking is a breeding ground for paranoia, trying to discern who around you that you know, may be 1 of the 30. The impetus to figure out whom, is that someday these people will spontaneously snap, and start killing everyone around them. But far worse, is that in the meantime these people are portrayed by Dizdar not as victims of abuse, but themselves to be Satanists or occultists, who appear to be normal Christians, but who are infiltrating local churches and doing horrendously evil and sick things – things which would be considered disgusting, immoral, and criminal. He portrays them capable of things too repugnant for many people to think of or normally consider. It is shocking.
Dizdar’s teachings actually warn Christians to be on the lookout for SRA/MPD demoniacs infiltrating their local churches, convincingly pretending to be Christian, and doing horrible and sinful things. The picture he paints of these SRA/MPD demoniac infiltrators is so evil and untrustworthy, it is beyond shocking. The shock value of these teachings must not be underestimated. It generates both shock and fear to have a man confidently assert, with frightening personal testimony, that people you know who seem normal could be killers, even your friends, family, co-workers, or Christians you fellowship with at your church. Dizdar confidently claims to have found them in many churches himself, setting the example for being on the look out for them. He also emphasizes how skilled they are at appearing to be normal Christians, how well they are able to become part of a local fellowship, eager to help, they move of the ranks of service, aiming to develop a position in the church of acceptance and belonging.
The idea that you could already be friends with or know a person like this, who could already presently be doing some of the horrendously sick things that Dizdar describes, in your own church, unbeknownst to anyone, is a shocking and frightening belief to entertain. It is well known, in studies of brainwashing and changing beliefs, that Shock coupled with Fear serves to disorient people, opening them up to questioning their usual view of reality, opening them up to accepting new beliefs, in order to be wary of a newly perceived threat, and this also often tempts people to compromise morally in order to protect themselves from that perceived threat. Dizdar’s teachings do manage to produce precisely this effect.
In result, it is perhaps not surprising that No leeway or consideration is given for if these people profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, nor does it matter if their behavior is fine, if their profession of faith is sincere, nor does it matter if no one has any evidence that they have done anything wrong. Of course those most easily labeled as such are those who in fact disclose any present or past experience of demonization, MPD, other dissociative problems, SRA, ritual abuse, or other severe and unusual abuse. If a person discloses these things and is seeking help and healing from their past, this unfortunately is portrayed as all the more proof positive that the person is secretly an SRA/MPD demoniac infiltrator. But of course the accusation of being an SRA/MPD demoniac infiltrator does not necessarily stop there, but can includes other people, as the paranoia of these beliefs leads believers to thinking anyone, (especially those who have a past, are awkward, odd, or new, but also just those who for a reason come on the radar of those out the look out for these infiltrators) could also be SRA/MPD demoniac infiltrators. The criteria for detection is wide open, as Dizdar teaches most of these people seem normal, and do not even realize there is anything wrong with them. And this brings us to the crux of the problem, of these teachings of the online Christian fringe community potentially harming local Christian churches.
[Part 3] So that you may better understand the attitude Dizdar promotes Christians of the online fringe community to have towards these people, including those who are self-admittedly already severely abused and hurting, and including those who are in fact Christians, I will quote sparingly from his book, “The Black Awakening”.
“Most of the ‘warrior’ sub personalities are down inside, sealed and asleep. They with the outside elite are waiting for the pre planned and programmed call. this activation is coming…This sleeping army charged with the demonic hate [and revenge] desires bloodshed and will glory in the mass chaos/revolt of their black awakening.” pg. 231
Note that the drive for identifying these people is tied to Dizdar’s false prophetic teachings, expecting a future mass murder scenario to come at the flip of a switch.
“Training also includes… how to infiltrate churches… Though the upfront person in a chosen one may seem docile, weak, and unassuming, don’t be fooled for a moment. It is just the mask that hides dozens of highly trained, programmed, empowered sub personalities… the trained empowered sub personalities are always watching. They are co-conscious and looking through the physical eyes of the body they are in… They are trained to be aware and their demons enable that awareness also… assignment… fake being Christian and bring compromise to the people there… infiltrating a church and bring harm. Seeking to destroy a Christian ministry center… find victims for satanic rituals” pg. 308-311
Note that the actual verifiable behavior of the person in question is taught to be irrelevant, so that no matter how mild the person is, they are still assumed to be guilty of evil actions. Demonic spirits are said to be present, which Dizdar emphasizes should be who you keep in mind that you are really talking to – pushing a relationship with the actual person to the side – even if they seem to be a Christian. As these people are said to “fake” being Christian, the teaching here is one of distrusting that other Christians are even saved. The potential here for these teachings to isolate Christians from sincere relationships with other Christians, and divide the Body of Christ in fellowship, is great. These teachings do not stop with encouraging fear of a future mass killing spree, instead vilifying these Christians to presently be so evil or corrupted as to be totally untrustworthy, easy to fear and hate:
“They my dear reader friends are made to be antichrist’s warriors who have no conscience left within them [that's what programming is for].” pg. 232
“There are some chosen ones who have alters who are programmed and trained to seem just like a Christian and be involved in a church… sabotage and harm…” pg. 326
“Chosen ones are trained to join a church and begin climbing the ladder of relationships and service. They may even volunteer or seek a job in the group. They want to be a part and will seek the inner workings of the church/group… The chosen one may have come to the church because they were in need or crisis. It may be that they came because they were referred. At first they may seem to just be a sad victim in need of sympathy and support… There are multiples highly trained in infiltration. They know what they are doing and are fully engaged in seeking to harm the church.” pg. 359-360
“By the time some churches and ministries realize a chosen one is among them great harm has occurred. A child in the nursery may have been violated, youth may have been led astray and or rituals may have been done in the church sanctuary. Church members may have experiences strange illnesses… gossip… spells…demonized objects… THEY WILL BEFRIEND YOU… They will like what you like and be interested in what you’re interested in… only to illicit your feelings of friendship and openness… will give you time, sacrificial service and gifts… want to help you… bring food… but they may have ‘fluid’ in them from ritual working…” pg. 361-362
Effectively Dizdar’s teachings against these people leave no room for them to be trusted, regardless of their efforts or good works, regardless of them professing Christ as their Lord and Savior, regardless of no evidence or proof of wrongdoing. Dizdar’s teachings effectively make church participation, service in the Body, the need and asking for help, and even seeking friendship, to all be evil acts that can serve as proof (to the paranoid mind) that a person is vile, without a conscience.
The things that these teachings accuse these people of doing, for believers in these teachings, make normal church interactions difficult to withstand. By that I mean that believers in these teachings have a weight and burden on them of concern, over whether a suspect can safely be trusted to volunteer at the church, be left alone in the church, work in the nursery, participate in potlucks, give gifts, etc. Additionally, those of the Christian conspiracy fringe who believe these teachings may feel burdened to warn others, but fearful that their own appearance of normalcy within a church body may be upset by sharing their concerns with leaders. Though it is also possible they may convince leadership who knows little of these matters that their expertise, based off Dizdar’s teachings, should be trusted. In result this could start a campaign of distrust and dislike against a targeted Christian accused of or thought to be a SRA/MPD demoniac infiltrator, even as being a “fake Christian”. The actions Dizdar accuses these people of committing are as such to cause a situation of paranoia and moral panic within a local Christian church, thus this paper’s title, “The New McCarthyism of the Christian Conspiracy Fringe”. If these teachings spread into a local Christian fellowship from the online Christian fringe community, the results could be spiritually devastating both to the accusers, and those who stand accused.
As for a Christian so accused, even if they have experienced SRA or some other form of severe abuse, whether they have MPD, or just think they might, or do not, whether they have demonic oppression, or not: the effects of being targeted as such are sure to have detrimental consequences, which could be all the more dire in the case of someone who actually has been a victim of severe abuse, is in need of healing, or is already suffering from some level of demonic oppression. Those who are already hurting, if confronted with open accusations and rejection, will only be hurt worse, and become wary of other Christians and church participation. Alternately, exclusion and dislike shown in a more silent manner, without open accusation, will likely also eventually build up so as to be noted by the person, and can have an equally detrimental and hurtful effect, producing the same result.
Besides this, there is the issue of if demonic oppression actually is present in the accused as a result of past severe abuse. It is well-documented in the study of Spiritual Warfare that abuse in the past which has not properly been dealt with God’s way, with forgiveness, can result in demonic oppression. Abused people who are under demonic oppression as a result of severe past abuse often have the problem of not having learned how to receive God’s grace into their heart about the past situation, and have not learned how to fully forgive and have freedom from the past abuse they suffered. It is also possible that some people with a past of severe abuse may have more severe problems with demonic oppression, and some lack of self-control in their behaviors through demonic interference. In any case, what Dizdar teaches is that they should be treated with prejudice, resulting in: rejection, exclusion, distrust, accusations, dislike, fear, and otherwise hateful actions of mistreatment. This could worsen the oppression the person already is experiencing – adding additional mistreatment that requires forgiveness, onto person who already suffers oppression from past abuse, that they do not know how to be set free from. In other words, further mistreating or abusing a person who is already under demonic oppression from being abused, will only serve to increase the demonic oppression on that person. In effect further mistreatment and hurt, further abuse, is the antithesis of the help and love these hurting and/or oppressed people need to heal and be set free in Jesus Christ.
Ironically, the behaviors Dizdar advocates of fear and paranoia, assuming the worst, resulting in rejection and mistreatment of people who are oppressed from severe past abuse, actually serve to increase demonic oppression and potential demonic influence over the behavior of that person. It is very ironic that Dizdar’s teachings are likely to effect worsening of demonization on these people, through additional abuse, rather than help them to heal and be set free from their past.
In his book Dizdar himself sets the example for those who follow his teachings. Summarily, he gives a story of a woman with MPD, who had a background of severe abuse, who seemed to be suffering from demonic oppression, who joined his local Church fellowship. She tried to fit into the church and get involved in normal ways, seeking acceptance. In response he took action to warn others in the church about her, even taking it to leadership, and essentially described himself starting a smear campaign of fear and distrust against her. This seems to be while he was co-currently counseling her, and she was looking to him for help in healing. Dizdar unashamedly sets the example in his book of violating client-counselor confidentiality, turning people against his client so as to interfere with her ability to be accepted in a local Church. No evidence is presented in the book to justify Dizdar’s mistreatment of this woman based on something she had actually done as yet in this local Church, rather she was mistreated based on a prejudiced stereotype provided by Dizdar to his local church.
It is not hard to imagine how this woman must have felt, to be trusting this man’s expertise, confiding in him, looking to him for help for serious problems, and to have her trust betrayed, him encouraging prejudicial treatment against her, and rejection of her in the Christian community, even by pastors and other leadership. It is not hard to imagine how she must have felt, as any human being would likely feel hurt and angry at being mistreated in this prejudicial way – hurt that only could be compounded by factors of the betrayal of trust and lack of love involved. As someone who had suffered sever abuse in her past, it also seems quite possible that this intimidating level of prejudice against her could have been frightening.
Dizdar seems hardened against empathizing with the hurt he caused this woman, and oblivious to his own wrongdoing, in such a way that he openly and unashamedly shows extremely set prejudicial thinking. His teachings truly encourage others to adopt this same mindset of prejudice, and to believe that this sort of immoral behavior is completely warranted and justified against these people, advocating viewing them and treating them as one would an enemy. Much as was seen in point #2 of those thought to be “nephilim hybrids”, the clear strategy here is again to label other people as the “flesh and blood” enemy, whereas the Bible clearly teaches “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood”.
But in mistreating this woman, who had trusted him and turned to him for help as a Christian, Dizdar did in fact treat her as an enemy. Any normal person who was mistreated with prejudice in this way could be expected to feel hurt and angry. Any normal person would have to forgive and overcome temptation to act on that anger. Unfortunately in this case, the woman in question was under demonic oppression, and Dizdar knew she needed help. It is no surprise, and perhaps should have been no surprise to Dizdar, that his behavior towards her resulted in a loss of self-control and an angry outburst from her towards him, in reaction to his behavior towards her. However, in his book Dizdar sees no fault with his own actions, and unbelievably, seems totally blind to how his own wrongdoing precipitated an angry outburst from her, as might be expected from anybody placed into that kind of situation.
Same as anyone would likely feel – who had a smear campaign brought against them within a local church, accused of horrible things without proof, rejected by a community they had sought love and acceptance in, trust violated, generally treated with total prejudice, and hatred, and likely irreparable damage having been done, and all this without evidence of wrongdoing – this woman was angry. She had been treated with hatred, and responded in kind, no doubt under demonic oppression, she lost control. Dizdar describes her outburst of anger was to arrive at his office and to throw a bayonet at him, which thankfully missed him. No one was hurt, but this is a serious matter of violence, and I won’t downplay that. However, I also will not accept the event as Dizdar portrays it in his book – as proof positive evidence that his actions against this vulnerable woman were justified. He attempts to have this event serve to prove that she was evil and dangerous, and so his betrayal of her trust, mistreatment of her, and smear campaign against her, was all warranted and justified by her later actions.
I disagree. Realistically speaking, anyone who was mistreated in such a hurtful way as to permanently ruin their acceptance within a church, betrayed by someone they had trusted and looked to for help, even looked to pastorally, looked to for hope about already-present serious problems, could be expected to be very hurt and angry. There is also a possibility that she may have been frightened, and this precipitated her actions, more so than anger. Being treated with prejudice and hatred, especially by a large group of people, can be a frightening thing for anyone, but especially for someone who has suffered severe abuse in their past. Also, within the context of a relationship of trust, such as a client-counselor, a pastor, or even a friendship, the abuse of that trust with betrayal can be frightening, including in the mass example of an entire church.
What Dizdar did to this woman with MPD was horrendously malicious, and the same as if she had been any other person, her feelings of anger and hurt, were a normal (if not spiritually mature) reaction to being abused, spiritually abused, in this way. There really is no question that her outburst of anger was a reaction to what Dizdar had done to her. That she had a reaction is not surprising. Rather, the key issue of controversy is that in fact she lacked the self-control to refrain from having a violent and dangerous outburst. But as she went to Dizdar seeking help for healing, there should have been no expectation that she was a spiritually mature enough Christian as to be able to overcome such a huge temptation to not get angry or retaliate in reaction to this clear case of hate-filled and prejudiced-based abuse of trust. This abuse, spiritual abuse, only would have strengthened any demonic power over her behavior. Prevention could have easily helped this event to have not occurred, such as if Dizdar had not spiritually abused her with malicious, hateful, and prejudicial treatment within the local Body of Christ.
Instead of a these people receiving love and acceptance in a local Christian fellowship, able to start over with a new life in Christ, become a productive member of the Body, participate in fellowship, make friends, be accepted at social functions, and replace their dark pasts with a bright and changed life in Christ – instead Dizdar’s teachings advocate that their pasts should follow them the rest of their lives into a church fellowship, meeting fear and accusations from fellow Christians (or a worse anti-evangelism effect if they are not yet saved in Christ). Dizdar’s teachings encourage prejudice, fear, dislike, rejection, and hate, advocating an environment in which the most hurt in need of help and healing cannot find sincere love, acceptance, and the freedom in Christ to be set free from past abuse they suffered. These teachings advocate a mentality against these people that places them in a holding pattern of forever being locked into their past, defined by it, judged by it as untrustworthy and unacceptable, on the basis of past abuse done to them which was not their own doing, and/or oppression they likely had little choice in acquiring, from severe abuse in childhood. And the result, the bad fruit of this, is only the potential (likely) worsening of the demonic oppression on the person, instead of receiving freedom in Christ from bondage.
Dizdar’s teachings, through shock and fear, affect moral compromise, and a change and hardening of heart in believers of his teachings, same as is demonstrable in his own actions in the actual example he sets for others. The result is not treating others as you would want to be treated, but rather with prejudice, and mistreatment that shows not love, but hate. Morals are compromised, client confidentiality is betrayed, assumptions of guilt are made without proof, accusations are founded on prejudice, and all of these “means” are exampled to be justified by the “ends” of preventing potential harm. However, as shown, these means of mistreatment cause, not potential, but actual harm to the accused. This in turn serves to cause and create more harm, even violence from the accused, which is then claimed as justifying the means of prejudice and mistreatment in the first place. To break out of this destructive cycle we must ask “Does the Bible justify the means?” and the answer is a resounding No.
Prejudice, fear, paranoia, accusations, partiality, rejection, slander, false witness, betrayal of trust in a relationship, abuse… these are not of the Bible. This is not moral or biblical treatment of other Christians or any other people. This is not part of “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” or “Love your neighbor as yourself” or ‘Love one another, as I have loved you’ in the case of Christians. The “means” DO NOT justify themselves, in the light of Biblical truth, and so the “ends” cannot be justified either.
[Part 4] Difficult as it is to find objective medical research on this, there is indication that the stereotype of thinking those with SRA backgrounds are all dangerous, or even that the majority are dangerous, is also unjustifiable. The impression from Dizdar’s book is that all SRA victims are dangerous, but the one research study I found which covered this did not bear this stereotype out. Some may be, under particular circumstances, but the vast majority are not. The research bore out the opposite of Dizdar’s claims and prejudice. Before getting to those figures, I would like to put them in an accurate perspective.
The mental health field, including therapists and social workers, of those working with mentally ill people of whatever sort (who some Christians would argue generally have some level of demonic oppression, across the variety of mental illnesses) does carry some risk. One study of 1129 social workers found that 50% had received a threat, 25% had experienced property damage, and 24% had experienced physical attack from a client. Another study of 178 counselors at a counseling center, found that 64% had experienced some sort of harassing behavior from a client. Additionally, 5.6% had been stalked by a client or former client, and 8% had had a family member stalked, and 10% had someone they supervised stalked by a client or former client. In a third study on prediction of violence based on how well therapy is going, it is generally estimated that on average there is an 8-12% chance of an act of physical assault from a client, based on factors of the level of need for treatment, if treatment is not effective, and adherence to treatment. These statistics cover the mental health field in general, including clients experiencing a variety of mental health conditions (and possibly levels of demonic oppression).
Now let’s compare this to research on SRA. This is not research on MPD, and the overlap is unknown. So just on SRA, around 225 therapists were asked if victims of (SRA) Ritual Abuse or Mind Control abuse had threatened or harmed them. The results were that 35% of therapists had been threatened by an RA/MC victim while in therapy, and 7% had been threatened after by an RA/MC victim after therapy had ceased. This is contrasted with being “harmed” by a client, and the results were 7% of therapists reported harm from an RA/MC victim during therapy, and 4% reported harm from an RA/MC victim after therapy had ceased. The percentages seen with RA/MC victims and their therapists are lower percentages than in comparison to the general mental health field of therapists and their clients. For the general mental health field, threats are seen to be 50%, but with RA/MC victims threats are 35%. For the general mental health field, violent attacks are 24%, but for RA/MC victims the highest rate that can be assumed is 7%. As to stalking (defining that as after therapy has ceased) the general mental health field is 5.6-10%, and for RA/MC victims the stalking rate is 7%, which is right at the same as average ((5.6+8+10)/3) of 7.9%, or actually it is just below average. Of course these figures are just estimates and statistics. But nevertheless, more objective medical research of the mental health field, compared to research on RA/MC in particular, supports the exact opposite of what Dizdar claims. http://extreme-abuse-survey.net/survey.php?en=b
What can be supported by more objective research is not that all SRA victims are dangerous, or that the majority are, but rather the minority of about 7% are dangerous, and about 35% can be threatening. Compared to the average client in the mental health field, SRA victims are less likely to make threats than average (35% vs. 50%) and at this, that is still only 35% of SRA victims, which is clearly the minority of SRA victims and not the majority of them. More importantly, compared to the average client in the mental health field, SRA victims are less likely to cause harm than average (7% vs. 24%) and at this, that is a whopping 93% of SRA victims who have not caused harm, the overwhelming majority of them. And as to stalking, SRA victims seem no more likely to stalk therapists than other people, and are no more dangerous than average. In fact everything indicates that SRA victims are less dangerous than the average client in the mental health field. There is simply no support in this more objective research for Dizdar’s claims that SRA victims should be singled out as more dangerous than your average person with mental health issues, and in fact the opposite appears to be true. Additionally, the stereotype that all SRA victims are dangerous appears to be unfounded. Prejudice is never justifiable or right, but in this case it seems to be especially inaccurate.
Working from earlier figures of 1/20,000-1/40,000 up to 1/200-1/400 of the general population who may have MPD and also have SRA, it would seem likely that only 35% of these people would make threats, and 7% are likely to cause harm. That is about 1/60,000-1/120,000 to 1/600-1/1,200 people who are SRA/MPD and are likely to make threats. But at 7% likely to cause harm, that is only 1/280,000-1/560,000 up to 1/2,800-1/5,600 people who are SRA/MPD and are likely to cause harm. Put this in perspective, with the population of a major city like
But even so, what about the 7% minority of SRA victims who might cause harm and are dangerous, or the 35% minority of SRA victims who may make upsetting threats? What about any SRA/MPD victims who do exist out there and who in fact are dangerous?
Even if these people are “fake” Christians and everything that Dizdar claims them to be, Jesus Christ’s clear instructions to Christians about “enemies” and “evil people” leave no room for prejudice and hateful treatment.
Matt 5:38-44 “Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have [thy] cloke also. And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you”
Luke 6:27-38 “But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
And unto him that smiteth thee on the [one] cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not [to take thy] coat also. Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask [them] not again. And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise. For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
And if ye lend [to them] of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again. But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and [to] the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”
Mar 11:25-26 “And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
Romans 12:14-21 “Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. [Be] of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but [rather] give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance [is] mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Rom 13:8-12 “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if [there be] any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love [is] the fulfilling of the law. And that, knowing the time, that now [it is] high time to awake out of sleep: for now [is] our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.”
Regardless of anything, no man has the right, even a man experienced with working with victims of SRA who have MPD, to presume the prerogative that his teachings can supersede God’s law of love. It is not up to him to decide whether he or others should obey it or not. No one has the right to make excuses for why they should not have to obey the law of love in regards to a person, even if that person is an SRA/MPD demoniac. We are commanded to “love your neighbor as yourself”, and the actions of every person will be judged by this standard. But especially as there is great risk and temptation in these teachings for Christians to mistreat Christian brethren, with prejudice and without love:
James 2:1-9, 4:11-12 “My brethren, do not hold your faith in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ with an attitude of personal favoritism. For if a man comes into your assembly with a gold ring and dressed in fine clothes, and there also comes in a poor man in dirty clothes, and you pay special attention to the one who is wearing the fine clothes, and say, “You sit here in a good place,” and you say to the poor man, “You stand over there, or sit down by my footstool,” have you not made distinctions among yourselves, and become judges with evil motives? Listen, my beloved brethren: did not God choose the poor of this world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom which He promised to those who love Him? But you have dishonored the poor man. Is it not the rich who oppress you and personally drag you into court? Do they not blaspheme the fair name by which you have been called? If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law according to the Scripture, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF,” you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors. …Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?”
Is prejudice patient and kind, or is it impatient and mean? Does a smear campaign serve the longterm benefit of the accused, or is it arrogant and acting unbecomingly towards the accused? Does fear and distrust keep a record of wrongs, or not? Does rejection from prejudice mean bearing, believing, hoping, and remaining through all things, or not?
1 Cor 4:1-8a “Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.”
1 John 4:18-21 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. We love, because He first loved us. If someone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for the one who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from Him, that the one who loves God should love his brother also.”
Christians cannot fear these people, Christians, and be loving them at the same time. Dizdar’s teachings are encouraging Christians fear, prejudice, paranoia, and hate, even hatred towards other Christians, which show these teachings are false and unbiblical.
Moving on, the next problem with the impact of these teachings on those in the Christian conspiracy fringe community is the possibility of not just those who with particular backgrounds in a local Christian church being targeted as accusable of being SRA/MPD infiltrators. Anyone could be targeted according to these teachings, from infrequent attendees, to established members, even up to the church staff and leadership.
“There are many chosen ones who have been placed in churches who are just quiet and come off and on. Their sub personalities know the sleeper assassin may be waiting for the ultimate call. When this trigger is given they are to find and kill leaders, cause mayhem and may bomb or burn the building. This is the ultimate goal of having hundreds of thousands of intact sleeper-chosen ones planted in the Body of Christ. I have found them in many churches… THEY ARE ALREADY AMONG YOU” pg. 365-366
“There are in my estimation hundreds of thousands of intact chosen ones who are placed in churches everywhere. they [or at least the presenting host] don’t know they are there to wait for the call. Chosen ones who are sleepers have deep inside of them the programmed sub personalities that are demonized and fierce.” pg. 487
” THEY ARE EVERYWHERE I have met SRA/MPD victims ‘chosen ones’… Remember there may have been up to 10 million of them and many more are being forged as you read!” pg. 453
According to Dizdar, these SRA/MPD infiltrators have been targeting churches for infiltration for some time, and many are already in place, though many do not even know they have SRA/MPD. They seem to be totally normal people, they make efforts to fit in, to serve and help, and then move up the ranks in local churches, aiming for the inner workings of the church. Dizdar claims they are already placed in many churches, but people are unaware of their presence. As such they could be anyone in a church, regular attendees or volunteers that have been there for years, even deacons or deaconesses, elders, associate pastors, or the senior pastor. This plan of infiltration has supposedly been taking place for decades, so there really are few limits on who could be accused.
These false teachings literally have the potential to tear a church apart, if suspicions against key church members or church leadership are raised. And that is besides these teachings having the potential to tear apart the life of an individual Christian.
There is potentially further harm to those who believe these teachings, and from them. The capacity to be able to harden your heart against another person, even another Christian, is something which is hard to limit in its growth potential. If someone is capable of prejudice and acting hateful to one person or group, even a Christian, then they have developed a capacity for prejudice and hatred which can spread to be targeted at other people or groups. This works in opposition to their spiritual growth and maturity as a Christian. A Christian who believes these teachings might develop a capacity for fear, prejudice, and hateful actions only towards one person or group of people, but once this capacity is developed inside that Christian, it can and will spread if at all possible, to hateful actions towards other people also, even additional other Christians, because prejudice is of our real spiritual enemy. For Christians to participate in false accusations, slander, prejudicial treatment, is all sin and can make them come to bear a burden spiritually, blinded by justifying their sin, develop a stronghold. The apathy and lack of empathy involved, to be cold towards how they would feel if treated that way by others, once learned, is too easily practiced again, whether with the lost or with other Christians.
[Part 5] Another problem is the way that Dizdar instructs Christians who are followers of his teachings to act, if they want to try to work with or help those with MPD, that being despite the fear and prejudice he teaches against them.
“If you meet a multiple they may not show or tell you much, at least not at first. Most of them are ‘intact’ and don’t even know they are multiple much less a satanic supersoldier [chosen one]. If you start to work with one or try to help them don’t start with ‘you’re a satanic chosen one who is going to kill many…’. If they have no idea what is inside they may just fall apart. Start with where they are.” pg. 453
There are numerous problems here. In the context of paranoia and being on the lookout for those with MPD, Dizdar first speaks to his followers as if they are qualified to determine, or assume, whether someone has MPD or not. Dizdar states many of those with MPD do not know they have MPD, so do not disclose it, and as such the implication is that the readers perhaps can figure it out. But many of the Christians reading his book are laymen who are not qualified to diagnose MPD, and are inexperienced with what it looks like. Encouraging the readers to think they can suddenly be qualified to tell, assume whether someone has MPD or not, is encouraging the readers to be ridiculously arrogant and presumptive, and dangerously so.
As covered earlier, a portion of those with MPD have seemed to acquire the condition (or claim to have it) after being exposed to the suggestion that they might have MPD, whether through hypnosis or the power of suggestion otherwise. To encourage the readers, who are already taught paranoia, to think they can determine who might have MPD, is just one step away from the readers starting to suggest to a troubled person that their problem is MPD. If a reader suggests to a troubled person that they might have MPD, there is some real chance that person might start to believe this suggestion, internalize this belief, and begin to develop symptoms of MPD where symptoms were not previously present. It is downright irresponsible to suggest to troubled people that they might have MPD, seeing as the medical research shows some cases of MPD only developed after suggestion of MPD.
Worse than this is Dizdar’s prejudicial thinking, in that he clearly believes that those with MPD are (95%) ‘Satanic Supersoldiers’, and encourages his followers to assume the same when they meet anyone with MPD. But as covered, only 25-50% of those with MPD are also SRA, and a more realistic figure of those with MPD and SRA who are likely to cause harm is only 1.8-3.6%. What is worse than taking a trouble person and suggesting to them that their problem is MPD, is taking someone with MPD and suggesting to them that they are a ‘Satanic Supersoldier’, or even have SRA in their past. Dizdar states not to Start with telling them that they are ‘Satanic Supersoldiers’, but the clear encouragement to his readers is to Eventually work up to telling those with MPD that they are Satanic Supersoldiers. This is very dangerous, as people with MPD can be very suggestible and too easily go along with the opinion of someone they perceive themselves to depend upon. This is as they usually have suffered severe abuse from someone they were dependent upon, and have learned to be malleable so as to not upset the abuser, risking danger of abuse.
Readers who might try to work with or help someone with MPD will be placing themselves into a role of trust with the person with MPD, who would be looking to the reader for help and answers. As that relationship of trust develops, Russ encourages the reader (now a counselor) to gradually work up to convincing the person with MPD (now a client) that they are a Satanic Supersoldier, in the arrogance of the surety of his 95% MPD and SRA/MC overlap rate. This is absolutely irresponsible. It subjects suggestible people with MPD to potentially being brainwashed through the power of suggestion of a trusted counselor, to think that they have had SRA (when 50-75% have not) or themselves are dangerous (when likely 96-98% are not). As covered, “false memories” are possible of SRA, and the suggestion of SRA could easily lead to someone with MPD developing false memories of SRA who previously had none. Worse, insomuch as MPD can itself seem to develop through suggestion, and has been shown to develop in therapeutic settings from the suggestion of a therapist, this includes the case of specific personalities in the course of MPD developed after suggestion. What Dizdar is encouraging readers (counselors) to do potentially allows for those with MPD to “find” (in truth develop) new personalities, which are developed or invented as a result of suggestion. Thus a new personality could be ‘found’ (develop) and makes some effort to show they are a ‘Satanic Supersoldier’, along with newly ‘found’ false memories of SRA.
Coupled with these problems are the problems of demonic oppression and abuse which were previously mentioned. Abuse and mistreatment, if not dealt with properly in the context of spiritual warfare principles, can become legal grounds for demonic oppression. Anyone (whether MPD, SRA, abused in the past, or not) could come under demonic oppression from being abused. People mistreated according to Dizdar’s prejudiced advise and example, even a normal person who was wrongly accused of being a ‘Satanic Supersoldier’ and treated with prejudice, paranoia, accusations, rejection, etc. by other people in a community, could come under demonic oppression in result of abuse and mistreatment, even without a history of past abuse. These teachings are potentially a recipe for disaster that could take a normal person and put them through abuse and mistreatment which could easily cause demonic oppression, where none was prior. But in the case of those who are already under demonic oppression from past abuse which has not been dealt with properly (likely due to not knowing how to deal with it properly) these teachings have the potential to cause worsened demonic oppression, if the person is further abused or mistreated as a result of Dizdar’s prejudiced teachings. The example he sets of violating counselor-client confidentiality, mistreating his client, and everything else he teaches of paranoia, prejudice and fear against those with MPD or SRA backgrounds…. Generally does not bode well for those his readers might work with should they try to work with or help those with MPD.
It is possible that a vulnerable person could become convinced by a reader of Dizdar, through suggestion, first of having MPD, then developing the symptoms, then of having SRA memories, ‘finding’ them, then of having a Satanic Supersoldier personality, and it displaying, then through prejudice, abuse and mistreatment from the reader (and/or a local Christian community) to then have any demonic oppression on them be worsened from abuse. There is all the potential in Dizdar’s teachings for pseudo-Satanic-Supersoldiers to be created and demonized from a normal person who is simply suggestible… and for innocent people to be hurt, simply from being undiscerning.
In fact, this scenario is not unprecedented. At least one pastor named Doug Riggs, after he developed an interest in MPD and SRA, had half of his congregation seem to ‘come down with a case’ of MPD and SRA, like half his congregation had caught the flu. Riggs was pastorally counseling several members of his congregation prior to these MPD/SRA cases being ‘identified’, and some reports from former members of the church that SRA and MPD were taught on in larger meetings at the church as well. We can know this was not a problem of a local Satanic group, as church members from different states and backgrounds started remembering the same key figure, one member’s father, in their childhood SRA memories, despite having been raised in different states, having met at this church, and their presence at this church together being largely coincidental. Arguably some (even many or all) of these cases of MPD, and SRA memories, developed as a result of suggestibility from trusting a counselor/pastor who had MPD and SRA on the brain. Accusations were made against family members who protested their innocence, and church members isolated themselves from their families, which tore families apart. At least one woman involved with Riggs later claimed her grown son to be a ‘nephilim hybrid’, raising the question of his humanity and potential to be saved.
As such, it is not an unrealistic exaggeration whatsoever to think that the incremental confusion passed onto a normal person through suggestion, from a reader and believer of Dizdar’s teachings, could result in that normal person developing MPD, SRA memories, a ‘Satanic Supersolider’ personality, being abused or mistreated by a reader/follower of Dizdar, and coming under very real demonic oppression from abuse (if nothing else).
While more objective medical research does not support Dizdar’s numbers, claims, paranoia or prejudice, it does support something else. It is alarming to see there realistically is potential for Dizdar’s claims to create the presence of SRA/MPD demoniacs, even close in their self-description to those he is prejudiced towards and teaches paranoia about. It is like a self-fulfilling prophecy, in which belief in what Dizdar teaches can actually lead to seeing pieces of it seem to happen, in part, something similar. This teaching has the potential through suggestion to cause the very problems it purports to be reporting on presently, which are presently not backed by more objective numbers. As such the bad fruit of this teaching is potentially irresponsibly causing the problems, potentially increasing the numbers of MPD/SRA demoniac cases out there, and the level of demonic oppression on these people.
It is very much like a self-fulfilling prophecy, and it all revolves around a false prophecy teaching which Dizdar received from demons, the prophecy of the Black Awakening, of SRA/MPD demoniacs infiltrating the church and later going on a mass killing spree. This information about the present and future should not have been trusted, as it came from demons. While more objective research simply cannot support this reality and future prophecy, what is truly disturbing is that these teachings of false prophecy, if believed and spread, could lead into events like this in the future. However the scope of the fulfillment of these prophecies seems to be limited to believers in Dizdar’s teachings, or those with MPD who are within the bubble of influence of his teachings and false prophecy. While there is nothing to indicate a Black Awakening happening on a large scale worldwide as demons claimed to Dizdar, there is some chance that in the bubble of Dizdar’s sphere of influence, of those who believe in the prophecy, those believers with MPD could become violent, at the time of a crisis, through the power of suggestion, already believing from these false prophetic teachings, that this is what they will do. Dizdar’s false prophecies and teachings are a very dangerous belief system, for anyone to entertain belief in, but especially for vulnerable or suggestible people, especially those who are MPD, or believe that they are MPD, or are open to thinking they could be.
These teachings seem to do more to recruit those with MPD (or normal people) towards becoming oppressed and violent, and more towards teaching Christians fear, paranoia and prejudice, hard-heartedness, and how to mishandle and mistreat these people, furthering the problems, then these teachings do towards actually helping those with MPD, or helping Christians to help them following biblical standards. This bad fruit is as might be expected in false prophecy and teachings which originally were derived from demons. The truth is that people who do not reject, but believe these false teachings and false prophecy open themselves up to delusion, beliefs straying from actual reality, and could spiritually be opening themselves up to demonic oppression solely as a result of getting inside the web of these false prophecy teachings, deceived in believing a false prophet. There seems to be demonic assaults which surround these teachings and draw people into belief in them. Both sides of this dichotomy, those who are vulnerable and those who are not vulnerable to believing they have MPD, seem to be targeted by demonic attacks, and tempted to morally compromise Christian standards for behavior, such as to love.
We’ve covered the possibility of a small percentage of the small number of those with MPD becoming violent in a crisis situation, even perhaps as a result of a suggestion they will do so, from coming under the influence of this false prophecy of a Black Awakening. But what is just as concerning, or more concerning, and potentially more dangerous in violence because of the greater numbers involved, is the possibility of Christian believers in the Black Awakening false prophecy, paranoid Christians on the lookout for hidden Satanic Supersoldiers, coming to hurt an innocent person who poses no real threat to them, an innocent person who is suspected of being a Satanic Supersoldier. There are far greater numbers of Christians who might fall on this side of this dichotomy of fearing and being paranoid of hidden Satanic Supersoldiers, who might come to use violence against a suspect in their midst, or nearby, should a crisis situation arise, before that suspect has or even could do anything to hurt anyone. These people are paranoid, fearful of life-or-death situations and deadly violence coming from the suspected or accused, and are taught to have hearts hardened against the suspected or accused, to not treat them as they would want to be treated. Essentially, if a crisis situation were to arise, it is possible a paranoid follower of Dizdar might jump to violence against an accused or suspected Satanic Supersoldier first, out of fear of an attack that has not happened yet, and might not even be coming in the first place, even preemptively striking someone innocent and harmless. It is the followers of Dizdar with paranoia that might be those more likely to be violent in a crisis, and in larger numbers than those suspected to be Satanic Supersoldiers. The Bible describes paranoia to associated with demonic oppression, as we read in John 7:20-21 “Jesus said, “Did not Moses give you the law, and [yet] none of you keepeth the law? Why go ye about to kill me?” “The people answered and said, Thou hast a demon: who goeth about to kill thee?””
Though in error in this instance, people in Jesus’ day clearly associated paranoia, thinking people were out to get you, as being a result of demonization, of being under the influence of the enemy. Again, There seems to be demonic assaults which surround these teachings and draw people into belief in them. Both sides of this dichotomy, those who are vulnerable and those who are not vulnerable to believing they have MPD, seem to be targeted by demonic attacks, and tempted to morally compromise Christian standards for behavior, such as to love.
While we might like to believe that no true Christians would harm or murder an innocent person in cold blood, out of fear, paranoia, or hatred… all we have to do is look at history to see example after example of those who called themselves Christians persecuting those different than them, to prove that in fact the church all throughout history has been waging an internal battle between those who call themselves Christians, and those who actually act like them by practicing the love and nonviolence Jesus Christ exampled. The church in the present time is still in the same battle, Pharisees exist today also within the church. The great danger in these teachings is the church being corrupted from the inside out, Pharisees without love tempting others to follow them. It is not just possible, but even likely that in certain situations of crisis, out of fear of a Black Awakening of supposed Satanic Supersoldiers, that Christian followers of Dizdar’s teachings might panic, and in paranoia turn on those innocent of any actual crime, and harm or kill them “preemptively”. This could be violence against innocent non-Christians who for whatever reason are suspected of being Satanic Supersoldiers… or this could be violence against other Christians, also innocent. In a crisis situation, it is not just possible but even likely that a paranoid Christian, engulfed in Dizdar’s teachings, might preemptively strike out against a threat that’s not even there, though in paranoia they perceive it to be, shooting a ghost of their own imagination, but wounding a real and innocent person.
In certain Christians, there is already a level of ignorance and prejudice, against those who are different, and unfortunately too often more judgmentalism than outreach to those who look different, act different, or believe differently. The last thing that is needed is for current levels of fear or prejudice to be raised to panicked proportions out of fearing for their lives. When Christians persecute those in the secular world, it gives all Christians a bad name, and hurts evangelism, besides being unbiblical conduct. It also generates backlash. Should something tragic along these lines happen, and an innocent secular person was killed by a paranoid Christian, murdered with no real provocation in reality, the secular backlash against Christians could be enormous. The last thing the church needs is for the world to have an excuse to label evangelical Christians who believing in literal prophecy fulfillment, as dangerous and violent extremists. These teachings truly are dangerous, both spiritually, and even potentially physically, to those on both sides of the dichotomy of anyone who comes under the influence of believing this false prophecy, and also potentially to innocent bystanders, and in backlash to the church at large. These teachings are potently dangerous if large numbers of Christians come to believe them, become paranoid against Satanic Supersoldiers, and in a time of crisis generate violence from Christians against innocent bystanders, and in result cause a backlash of persecution against the whole Christian church. My concern isn’t those with MPD, but rather those without MPD who believe these teachings, who exist in larger numbers, and seem more likely in paranoia to become violent, and on a larger scale.
If false teachings/prophecy were drugs, and Serpent’s Seed was alcohol, and Modern Nephilim Hybrid teachings were marijuana, then Dizdar’s teachings on SRA/MPD and of the Black Awakening would be the heroin of false prophecy and false teachings that are currently circulating and spreading out there in the online Christian conspiracy fringe. Unlike the others, it’s powerful, it’s easy to get hooked on jut a little, and to OD and die on just a little of this (spiritually speaking), and it gets people hooked long-term. The impact this can have in a person’s life can be powerful and powerfully detrimental.
Dizdar, who is deceived, tries to fit these false prophecies into the Bible, citing Rev 19:19, saying these SRA/MPD demoniac infiltrators are the armies of the antichrist, who in their “Black Awakening” or global spontaneous mass murder killing spree, will help usher in the rise of the antichrist to power. But these prophecies were received by demons and are false. But if this fits anywhere in prophecy, it would be that this coldness towards another person is the core of what Jesus Christ prophesied would happen in the last days:
“And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” -Matt 24:10-13
