PHALLUS WORSHIP &
THE NEW CHARISMATICS
by: S.R. Shearer
Fascination with the phallus [i.e., the erect male sexual organ (penis)
as it appears just prior to penetration of the female vagina] was common
in the ancient world. Indeed, "penis worship" is the basis of nearly
all pagan worship - even today - and is especially associated with concepts
of male domination and male aggression.
Sadly, this disgusting phenomenon is making an astonishing comeback
- and not simply in pagan circles, but in evangelical circles as well.
Take, for example, Robert Hicks, a well-known speaker and teacher in
the Promise Keepers movement, an ecumenical mens movement that
has been sweeping the country and bringing together Catholics and evangelicals
for the ostensible purpose of strengthening the country by re-establishing
male "headship" in the "... family, community and nation."
Hicks suggests that Jesus was a "phallic kind of guy"
- i.e. that He was stimulated sexually and that He possessed an aggressive
sex drive. Hicks says, "... (while) it was never recorded that
Jesus had sexual relations with a woman ... if temptation means anything,
it means Christ was tempted in every way as we are ..."
(p. 181, emphasis in original)
Such a statement, of course, is blasphemous - but it gives some idea
as to how widespread this kind of thinking (i.e., the desire
to re-establish male domination) has become - and indicates
a growing (and very ugly) reaction in many otherwise "mainstream"
segments of our society (and not just "Christian" ones) against
the radical feminism countenanced by liberals over the past
twenty years (phallus worship celebrates the sex act as an act
of male domination - and not just domination, but aggressive
and even violent domination).
The teaching on the phallus has become especially popular in certain
"New Charismatic" circles - especially those circles associated with
"Christian psychology." (See Robert Hicks, The Masculine Journey
, Understanding the Six Stages of Manhood and The Masculine Journey
Study Guide, Colorado Springs: The Navpress Books, 1993.)
In the light this, it might be fair to ask, "What does all this mean?"
- if, as Robertson suggests, des Mousseaux was right - that phallus
worship is associated with the devil and that those who practise it
are in league with the Antichrist, then what does this say about himself
in light of the fact that Robertson supports the Promise Keepers? What
Robertson appears to be doing is condemning himself and his supporters
as well - after all, the "New Charismatics" constitute his core constituency
and they, apparently, are all "into" (or at least countenance ) phallus

eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR
HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN"
WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank"
insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned
- a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY
trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN
rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners
in the abject poverty that American corporations have
imposed on the peoples and nations the American military
machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE
THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME
OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE." [Please see our articles,
