The New Atlantis:
Sin for Salvation
The world is a system of control. At all times, the world rulers seek to impose their will on the ordinary people through laws, rules, commandments, regulations, codes of conduct, orders, hierarchies, “legitimate” authority. If necessary, they will use force to uphold their laws, but that involves expense, trouble and potential dangers, so they desire instead that the people should internalise their panoply of control and obey it robotically. That way, the rulers enjoy all of the benefits of control without having to expend time and effort enforcing it. They are free to indulge themselves and take maximum advantage of the subjugated people. Their task, then, is to work out how to manipulate people into internalising the masters’ rules of the game so that they don their chains voluntarily. They have become grand masters at making the puppets dance.
So, if the people want to be free, what must they do? They have to shed the masters’ matrix of control – the laws that have been brainwashed into them from birth and the rules that are drilled into them every day – and then they will be able to see through the nexus of tyranny that the rulers have created to trap them.
When the people, en masse, no longer obey the laws of the controllers then the controllers have lost. Even with the army and police on their side, the controllers do not have sufficient resources to quell mass uprisings. That is their greatest fear. So, the princes of the world have become experts in “legitimising” their system of control. If the people buy into it then the controllers have won. In the West, “democracy”, religion and capitalism are the main tools to control the masses. In a democracy, the people vote for the system of control that’s imposed on them, so they have become accomplices in it and have no right to object. They are as culpable for the laws as the lawmakers themselves, or so the democratic logic goes. (In fact, casting a vote has nothing in common with lawmaking). With religion, “God” imposes commandments and everyone is obliged to obey the divine will or suffer the consequences: eternal damnation (i.e. this system seeks to terrify people into submission). As for capitalism, that’s designed to make people obsessed with consumerism, status and materialism; to keep the rats in the race, stuck forever in the rat trap.
The Gnostic teaching of “Sin for Salvation” is the antidote to all systems of control. Sin for Salvation is about defying the control matrix of the oppressors. Sin for Salvation breaks the brainwashing of the Power Elite.

The Antidote to the Control Matrix
It’s easy to participate in the system of the controllers. Most people do it every day in every part of their lives. It takes effort and courage to break out.
The ancient Gnostics adopted two strategies for dealing with the controlling world of the Demiurge: ascetism or licentiousness. The ascetic approach was to withdraw from the world. They ate and drank little, needed little money, didn’t have conventional homes or jobs, avoided contact with members of the mainstream religions. They took themselves “off the grid”, so to speak. You can’t be controlled by a system in which you don’t participate.
The licentious approach is “Sin for Salvation” – deliberately breaking the rules of the controllers, purposely misusing and abusing the laws of the Demiurge. With this approach, you lose all fear of the controllers’ system.
The great Gnostic thinker Carpocrates was the main advocate of Sin for Salvation. Since the princes of the world were the servants of Satan then the disciples of Carprocrates felt no necessity to obey their rules. They mocked the restrictions imposed on Christians and Jews. In turn, they were accused of doing whatever is “irreligious and impious” and for holding that good and bad are matters of human opinion.
Carpocrates actively encouraged the stoking of the forbidden fires of desire, so as to reduce them to ashes. His disciples rejected marriage and private property and engaged in sex orgies and magic rituals. Carpocrates, making use of the secret Gospel of Mark, introduced mind-altering, ecstatic rituals designed to put disciples in the right mind to attain higher realities. The Carpocratians sought xenophrenic (strange-minded) states. Wallow in sensuality in order to attain perfection, Carpocrates preached. Once a man has received gnosis he can no longer sin. If he has become God, he is quite incapable of sinning.
Encratism is the practice of sexual restraint in erotic situations to increase the possibility of ecstatic states and gnosis. It is sex without the climax. The initiate was allowed sexual intimacy with a member of the opposite sex, but not consummation. The idea was to subject the initiate to maximum temptation, the prospect of the greatest pleasure, yet to require the initiate to resist, just as he should resist all of the temptations and seductions of the Demiurge’s world. If a male initiate penetrated a female partner, he was to deny himself orgasm.
Peccatism (from the Latin peccatum: sin) is the doctrine that sin should be indulged and is the basis of Sin for Salvation. There is a limited stock of sins, and these should be progressively exhausted. The law of the Demiurge should be undermined by intentional excess.
Carpocratians considered that souls had been tempted into Satan’s evil material world by the prospect of carnal delights and worldly pleasures. Only by sinning – by over-indulging in these temptations, by exploring them in every conceivable way – could the soul be sated and purged of all further interest. Only when the soul had grown weary of the superficial pleasures offered by Satan’s world could it resume a spiritual state sufficient to allow it to be admitted to the realm of light. You should experience everything that life has to offer so that you might grow weary of it, and be released from its spell.
Gnostic sects were regularly condemned for being licentious, immoral, and celebrating crime and vice. Gnostics were regarded as libertines, outlaws, and rebels. They were described as “antinomians” – those against the established law.
The Gnostic leader Basilides declared: “The perpetration of any voluptuous act whatever is a matter of indifference.”
A group of Gnostics called Borborites – the “filthy ones” – were alleged to wallow in moral and physical filth, to smear themselves with menstrual blood, semen, faeces and even afterbirth.
Prohibition A features a Sin for Salvation nightclub in Manhattan. The Millionaires’ Death Club features a Sin for Salvation ceremony involving a miraculous drug called NexS. The Last Bling King describes a complete rejection of all the values and rules of the Power Elite.
A famous anarchist slogan – “God is Evil” – is pure Gnosticism. To realise that the creator of this corrupt, malevolent world is the opposite of the “perfect” being that Christians, Jews and Muslims proclaim as the creator is the first step in the process of personal and public liberation. We have had three and a half thousand years of Judaism, two thousand years of Christianity and fourteen hundred years of Islam. Is the world a good place? Is it just and fair? Do people treat each other well? If these religions haven’t achieved a good world by now, why would anyone think they’re ever going to achieve it? So only stupid or wicked people would continue to follow these failed religions. The reason for their failure could scarcely be more obvious – they are Satanic religions reflecting the mind of the world’s malign creator. They are not designed to effect a good world, but the opposite.
And once you realise that the God of this world is a false God whose deluded supporters trumpet him as true, you will just as quickly realise that all of the earthly institutions that hold themselves up as exemplars of the “good” are equally false. Kings and queens, presidents and prime ministers, popes, priests, rabbis and imams, “democracy” and “freedom”, free market capitalism…everything you have been told is true is false, just as the creator is not God but Satan.
The Gnostic message is about waking people up and making them see the truth of this world. Sin for Salvation, where a person consciously and deliberately flouts the conventions and rules of this godforsaken earth, is a primary means of liberation, of experiencing a visceral release from the controllers of this false world. “Sin” is their definition, not God’s. Never believe their definitions.
It’s up to you, not them, to determine good and evil, and what you come up with will reflect whether you are a good or bad person. Many of the insanely greedy captains of Wall Street are practising Jews and Christians. Doesn’t that say all you need to know about Judaism and Christianity? These are religions of greed and selfishness, which is why they attract greedy and selfish people. Illumination is the religion that provides the antidote.
One of the primary aims of Illumination is to eliminate the scope for greed by establishing an economic system where the wealth of everyone falls within a narrow range. At the moment, the wealthiest people in the world are hundreds of millions of times richer than the poorest. Imagine a world where the richest man was no more than twenty times wealthier than the poorest: a moral world, a just world, a more equal world, a world where the rich would not have disproportionate power and could not trample over the weak. They – the controllers of the world – will do everything to sabotage this religion. They have worked for millennia to stamp out Illumination and the Illuminati, but we are still here and our day will come when good people realise they have been the victims of a grotesque Satanic con perpetrated by the likes of Moses, Jesus and Mohammed.
The Gnostic sage Marcion preached that the Old Testament was nothing but a sickening catalogue of the Demiurge’s hatred, violence and crimes against humanity. It’s remarkable that a book so evil could ever have been considered “good”. The Jehovah that appears in the Old Testament is a deranged, psychotic tyrant wallowing in human misery and inflicting as much pain as he can contrive.
Sin for Salvation is the road to redemption. It opens your eyes to the truth. Reject the Old World Order’s system of control. Find your own paths through life. An experiment in Europe showed that people drive better when traffic lights (systems of control) are removed. So it is with sin. People will be more moral when all the codes of morality are turned off and people are able to use their own judgement to decide what is right and wrong.
Usually, the sexual aspect of Sin for Salvation is emphasised, as it is here, but in fact Sin for Salvation applies to everything. It’s a mindset. It’s about not buying into the laws and attitudes of those who would control you. It’s about having an open mind about what “sin” actually is. It’s about not automatically subscribing to someone else’s conception of sin. There are many sins in this world – such as the infinite greed of Wall Street bankers and their ilk – that are held up as virtues and qualities to be emulated. Always be on the lookout for sins that masquerade as goodness. Always be on the lookout for healthy activities that are condemned as sinful.
The captains of Wall Street break no laws when they bury their snouts in the money trough – because they themselves constructed the laws. But we all know that these people are morally wrong. We all know they should be stopped. So why aren’t we doing something? The law is not there to protect us but to prevent us from acting against them.
Arthur Rimbaud, the radical and extraordinary 19th Century French poet, came into contact with the French chapter of the Illuminati and they inspired him to seek his higher self.
Rimbaud famously said, “The poet becomes a seer through a long, immense, and reasoned derangement of all the senses.” “…[he becomes] the great invalid, the great criminal, the great damned – and the supreme Sage!”
Rimbaud was one of the least conventional men in history. He paid no heed at all to the controllers.
The Marquis de Sade, Baudelaire, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Aleister Crowley, Antonin Artaud, William Blake are all other good examples of people who rejected the conventions of society. They are role models for those seeking freedom from the control matrix. Postmodernism: deconstruction, the death of the grand narrative, the death of the author, the death of art, the death of God, the death of the real, hyperreality, the “other”, “excluded histories” – it all helps to challenge the dominance of the prevailing control narrative. Everyone should become a postmodernist.
Hieronymus Bosch’s famous painting The Garden of Earthly Delights is a symbolic depiction of a Sin for Salvation ceremony.
The Illuminati promote the two Gnostic paths: asceticism and licentiousness. Some members favour one over the other; some alternate between the two. Which do you prefer?
So, it’s up to you. Find the ways that allow you to escape the control matrix of the Old World Order. Embrace transgression: it’s only a label. Practise sex magic if that’s what you like. Participate in Dionysian rites. The OWO have always hated unrestrained sexual activity because of its power to disrupt networks of control. We live in a highly sexualised society and yet it’s “capitalist” sex – used for making money – rather than true, raw, passionate sex. In fact, the OWO want to swamp us with images of sex that make us part with our money, but they don’t want us to actually have sex, or rather they want us to have sex within the narrow confines of “family and religion”. It’s all part of their control system.
Arguably, we have never lived in a more repressed and Puritanical society. Baudrillard said that Disneyland was built to conceal the fact that the whole of America is now an infantilised fantasy world. In the case of sex, sexual imagery is deployed everywhere to conceal the fact that humanity has never been more anti-sex. How is it possible to have sex “scandals” in a world so apparently awash with sex and with such an allegedly liberal attitude towards sex? In ancient Greece and Rome, orgies, pornography and promiscuity were taken for granted. Many cultures throughout history, especially those concerned with liberation, have embraced extreme sexuality. In the 1960s, hippies told everyone to make love, not war. Where are the hippies now? We certainly know where the wars are. The control matrix loves war and hates sex. The hippies are now the generals. Isn’t that the way the world works?
“Thou Shalt Not,” the controllers say.
“Thou Shalt, Thou Shalt, Thou Shalt, Thou Shalt, Thou Shalt,” we say.
Reject their Mind Control.
Their sins are false.
