Before Eliot Spitzer apparently became motivated to destroy his own credibility, he said, “I don’t care about motivation. I care about credibility.”

The former governor of New York made a great point … even as scandal later tainted his reputation. His comment on credibility, however, is spot on.

I thought of it recently as I finished reading an amazing book, “Forbidden Gates: How Genetics, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Synthetic Biology, Nanotechnology and Human Enhancement Herald the Dawn of Techno-Dimensional Spiritual Warfare.”

OK, don’t hate on the subtitle, because it’s necessary to convey just what this landmark book is about. In fact, I believe this is one of those game-changer books that can inform the laity about what is really going on in our world.

A side note: The authors of this book, Tom and Nita Horn, are cutting-edge publishers, who have purposed to serve as whistleblowers regarding certain subjects. Only days ago, their home burned to the ground, and Tom lost valuable research materials.

If the biblical statements about the spirit world are true, we must acknowledge that there are beings that wish us harm. In today’s world, secularists, New Agers and even some Christians believe in the existence of extraterrestrials. Is it such a stretch to believe in the reality of the dark powers outlined in the Bible?

Tom and Nita Horn have spent years researching how technology is being used by powerful forces to alter our world. Already we see television programs like “Being Human” (in which young people are vampires, werewolves and ghosts) and supernatural elements have been a focus of film for decades. I cite these examples in an attempt to help you see that “Forbidden Gates” should be given a wide hearing, since while its critics would say it strains credibility … their own worldviews are at least as fantastic.

In any event, “Forbidden Gates” is one of the most challenging, engrossing books I’ve read in some time. I happen to think the authors are on to something.

Something big.

The Bible describes early on a world so corrupt, God decided to virtually remake it. We learn of beings so evil, they had to be destroyed. Could we be seeing a repeat in our day?

“Forbidden Gates” offers a plethora of topics that will blow your mind:

  • brain-machine interfacing
  • transhumanism
  • possession
  • the return of “the days of Noah”
  • machine intelligence

As the Horns point out, technology is now redefining what it means to be human. And, lest we still think this is fantasy stuff, consider the efforts in cloning.

On the day I finished reading “Forbidden Gates,” the news surfaced that scientists are prepared to produce a woolly mammoth, a creature not seen in our world in several thousand years. No, those who are skeptical are simply sticking their heads in the sand.

Let me tell you something: This book is so extraordinarily fascinating and readable, you’ll be hard-pressed to put it down. However, perhaps my favorite chapter was Chapter Five: “Daimonians Inside the Church.” Here the authors put their decades of experience inside denominational quarters to good use.

The authors make bold statements, alleging that dark forces exist “today from the lowest to the highest levels of denominational establishment among institutional members who are possessed (whether they perceive it as such or not) by Luciferian ambition.”

Not only do the authors shine a spotlight on “secular” change agents who are bringing diabolical elements into society, they are not shy about exposing church heretics and apostates who are advancing the kingdom of darkness.

It is in the realm of technology melded with humans, however, that “Forbidden Gates” really shines. From the shadowy work at the National Institute of Health, to the work in military neurobiology, artificial intelligence research and cybernetics, we can see clearly that History Channel specials on such incidents as the Philadelphia Experiment were not, after all, the stuff of science fiction.

We also learn from this book that these diabolical technological initiatives aren’t always pursued in the dark. For example, in 2005, former secretary of Health and Human Services, Tommy Thompson, “forged a lucrative partnership with VeriChip Corp. and began encouraging Americans ‘to get chipped’ so that their medical records would be ‘inside them’ in case of emergencies.”

One doesn’t have to think too hard to realize what such technology will lead to, if one puts any stock into the biblical reality of an end-times international leader.

Look, let’s be clear: Skepticism about such matters doesn’t render them untrue. In fact, it is almost amusing that many in media, politics and entertainment would consider “Forbidden Gates” fantasy, while at the same time embracing wholeheartedly their own fantasies of travelers from other planets.

Tom and Nita Horn have resolved to be on the frontlines of reporting uncomfortable news. For that, we owe them a debt of gratitude.

Put “Forbidden Gates” into as many hands as you possibly can. The authors are motivated by a sincere desire to help us. And they are credible.
