Satan Worship in India Worries Christians

leave a comment »

So it should.

Christian groups in India’s northeastern state of Nagaland are working to quell the rapid growth of Satanism after reports that thousands of teenagers from churches had taken up devil worship in recent months.

The Vatican’s Fides news agency recently reported that more than 3,000 young “worshipers of Satan” have been identified in Nagaland’s capital of Kohima alone.

The actual strength of Satan worshippers is difficult to determine, but such groups also exist in Nagaland’s largest city of Dimapur, and they are using social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter to expand their network…

“Some of the Christian youth who have renounced Satan worship have told us that they would be called for services after midnight at the Kohima War Cemetery and other locations, and asked to wear black T-shirts and be called by their new nicknames,” Longkumer said.

Longkumer said he has seen membership forms for a group calling itself the Black Bulls and inviting youngsters to become part of devil worship…

Sandy Hook Gunman Adam Lanza Worshiped the Devil

with 6 comments

The Sandy Hook gunman worshiped the devil and  had an online page dedicated to Satan, a former classmate revealed, as his  childhood barber recalls Adam Lanza never spoke and would stare at the floor  every time he had his hair cut.

Lanza’s worshiping page had the word ‘Devil’  written in red, Gothic-style letters against a black background, Trevor L. Todd  told The National Enquirer, something which he said was ‘weird’ and ‘gave him  the chills’.

The FBI are trying to piece together his  smashed up hard drive to see if his online footprint will reveal any motive for  the killing, but they strongly believe he made use of devil-worshiping and  suicide sites and boasted of his murder plans on message forums…

Devilish ‘Energy Drink’ Blasphemes the Mass

with one comment

In Poland, where things seem to have gotten way bad.

Edit: We got this from an organizer at Polish Facebook group Satanizm nie przejdzie – bojkot produktów Agros Nova, to ban satanic advertisement of an energy drink and its insult to the Mass in Poland of all places. It just goes to show you that things are getting bad all over.

Catholics, Christians, all believers in God! Poland is under an assault of corporate-sponsored satanism in the form of the “Demon Energy Drink” advertisement campaign. Our young are being corrupted with praises of demonic values and occult symbolism. We have to put an end to it! Our page promotes a boycott of all the grocery products of Agros-Nova, a company that makes “Demon Energy Drink” in Poland. The more likes we have, the bigger chance we have to be successful. I urge you to add your “like” to this page [called “Satanism shall not pass – boycott of Agros Nova products“], even if you are not from Poland. This is very important! Satan is attacking the last major Catholic country in Europe. We need to stand up and defend it!

Contact information, here.

We live in dark and evil days…

Satanism through the Ages

leave a comment »

The term Satanism represents a broad range of religions, world views, and literature that all look favourably on Satan or similar rebellious figures.

The Telegraph (UK) reports on the worship of this fiend:

Satan first appeared in the Hebrew Bible as an angel who challenged the religious faith of humans. In the Book of Job he is called “the Satan” (“the accuser”) and acted as the prosecutor in God’s court.

A character named Satan was described as the cosmic enemy of the Lord and tempter of Jesus within many of the Gospels of early Christians. He is the bringer of Armageddon and Apocalypse as featured within the Book of Revelation.

Christians and Muslims have portrayed Satan as an evil competitor to humans and Jesus, characterised as a fallen angel or demon ruling the Underworld.

The Christian church’s tendency to label all those who did not agree with it as agents of evil led to the persecution of numerous non-Christian groups, leading to the Crusades and witch-hunts and the Inquisition. It would also eventually lead to the destruction of many indigenous cultures, such as the Mayan civilisation, in the name of Christ.

Famous satanists over the ages include Gilles de Rais, a 15th century French nobleman, was tried and executed for the murders of hundreds of children in quasi-Satanic rituals.

The late 17th century campaign against alleged satanism known as the Poison Affair under Louis XIV, involved accusations of widespread poisonings, infanticide and forgery committed by an alleged satanic social network.

Modern Satanist groups fall into two major trends: Theistic Satanism, which venerates Satan as a supernatural deity, and Atheistic Satanism, which regards Satan as symbolic of purely certain human traits.

The Church of Satan, established in San Francisco in 1966, preaches the Nine Satanic Statements, which include “Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence”, “Satan represents vengeance instead of turning the other cheek” and “Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification”.

In 2004, the Royal Navy approved its first ever Satanist, despite opposition from Christians.

There is now a growing movement of theistic Satanists, who believe in and revere Satan as a deity.

One is the Temple of Set, which identifies the Christian Satan with the ancient Egyptian god Set.

In the 1980s, there were a series of alleged cases of Satanic ritual abuse in the United States, leading to moral panic but only a tiny number of crimes were recorded.

Those who walk in the light have no business with those who adore this murder, walk in darkness and dabble in the occult.

Man Dumps 'demon' Wife

leave a comment »

Wicked and exactly why the world needs the illuminating light of the Christian faith:

Kuala Lumpur – A Malaysian man abandoned his wife after a temple medium convinced him that she was a demon who wanted to kill him.

The Star newspaper on Thursday quoted the wife, who gave her name as Loh, as saying that her factory manager husband now wants a divorce and also refuses to meet their two teenage children for fear his wife will use them to kill him.

“The medium told my husband I had been casting spells on him for the past 15 years,” Loh was quoted as telling a news conference in Kuala Lumpur.

“He refused to eat or drink at home because he thought I poisoned the food.”

Loh said the medium was heavily in debt and likely taking advantage of her husband, who had withdrawn their children’s savings before deserting the family.

Malaysians often seek spiritual aid from an assortment of faith healers, mediums and witch doctors to solve personal problems and work issues…
