Why does the world raise up certain men in various fields? Why does the world raise up authority figures? Why does the world highly esteem certain man-created authorities such as psychiatry and education? The answer is: the world is an enemy of God.
Henry James – (h/t:F) Every time the world raises up a man, the Christian must ask himself “For what reason?”
Short of an act of God Almighty, the world does not give its coin (fame, power, money) away lightly. It does not bestow its gifts on those who are unfriendly.
“…know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
So it is with “men of letters,” the literary world.
The world can bestow its favors on any it chooses. It will only choose those friendly with the world AND it will choose those who help it further its antichrist agenda.
Henry James fit this description.
So again, the question concerning Henry James: why did the world choose to raise him up?
To the reader who is tempted to answer “Talent”: don’t be naive.
Talent is never the primary consideration when discussing who the world chooses to raise up.
A thorough look back over those the world chose to elevate in the literary field shows a great many who possess mediocre talent at best.
Oh, there are a few obviously-talented ones (Twain and Bierce come to mind), but on the whole, American letters has largely been a dung heap of mediocrity.
Only in the false reality which has been presented to the masses as “history” and “literary history” are such as the James Brothers anything other than quickly-forgotten footnotes.

MORE ON HENRY JAMES and WILLIAM JAMES
The world loves its own.
A few days ago [End Times Prophecy Headlines: November 1-2, 2014], a discussion was started on novelist William James, the matter of those who the world raises up and a few other side issues.
It was promised in the comments to return soon to this topic. Time limitations prevent us from addressing these items as thoroughly as wished, but here’s a few chewable bits until our time constraints loosen
Henry James – [h/t:F] and his brother William, who the world also raised up) grew up in the household of their father, a semi-famous Swedenborgian theologian. This “theology” developed from the writings of Swedish scientist/theologian, Emanuel Swedenborg. Swedenborg claimed to have received new revelations from Jesus through a series of continuous visions over the course of twenty-five years.
The Swedenborgians took these new revelations as canon, in direct contradiction of the Bible.
What were some of the revelations Swedenborg’s “Jesus” told him?
Well, Swedenborg predicted that God was going to replace the Christian Church with a New Church which would worship God in the one person of Jesus Christ. Like other false religions and cults, Swedenborgianism was all about making a lost person a better person, not saving him through the once-for-all sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
Actually, since Swedenborgianism is a “many paths” cult, the blood of Jesus holds no particular significance for them.
All totally unbiblical, but what’s to be expected from a person (Swedenborg) many doubted was even a Christian. [NOTE: This source is a mixed bag, particularly its praise of Watchman Nee.]
So the James boys grew up in a wealthy home surrounded by antichrist teaching of a fairly-famous father (who had his own otherworldly “visitations.“. The philosophy of their early home life came out more prominently perhaps in the writings of William James (who combined science and theology and “metaphysics.”)
But Henry was an apt student as well.
Both of the James brothers engaged in doing the world’s bidding: William, more overtly; Henry, through a sort of sniping subversion.
And that’s all the time for this particular subject, which is a continuation of the theme “The world raises up those who will do it’s bidding and the bidding of its prince.”
The secondary theme of “The world raises up those who will do it’s bidding and the bidding of its prince regardless of other talents.” will be addressed when time permits.
Hopefully sooner than later.
THERE is still yet a little time left to change direction (repent).

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
