|"Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like..."
|"Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."
The seduction is virtually complete. Christianity’s top leaders have now gone over to the devil’s side. Many today openly endorse and embrace witchcraft, magic, and other devilish arts and devices. Most others, by their marked silence, are now acquiescing and joining in on this ghoulish, latter days conspiracy.
I make this accusation boldly and without reservation. Moreover, I have seen this evil day coming for
many years. I have preached about it, warned of it, and lamented it. Now, it is here. Today’s strong delusion of satanic witchcraft has a fatal, claw-like grasp upon the very heart and soul of stained and rebellious Christianity.
|Newsweek's cover touted Harry Potter, and Christianity Today magazine called Harry Potter books "wonderful." Note the "lightning bolt" on Harry Potter's forehead.
Hated and Reviled for My Faith
Fifteen years ago, my books, Dark Secrets of the New Age, Ravaged by the New Age, and others exposed the cancer-like growth of New Age occultism within the Christian community. Although these books enjoyed a wide reading, their exposures caused me to become one of the most hated, reviled, and rejected men in the entire Christian world.
I thank God, however, that a tiny remnant of true believers have, through the years, stood by me, encouraging me in my struggle to contend for the faith once delivered to the saints (Jude, vs. 4).
C.S. Lewis Exposed as Pagan Mythologist
In 1987, as one of only a few lone voices in the wilderness, I warned the Christian world of the insidious, unscriptural, satanic, and magical messages and images contained in the books of famous "Christian" author, C.S. Lewis. I wrote particularly of Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia series for kids and adults, demonstrating how these works were from the very pit of hell.
And though British author C.S. Lewis was one of the most quoted, admired, and beloved of all "Christian" writers and teachers, I demonstrated that Lewis’ own personal and doctrinal life was stigmatized by pagan beliefs, mythological imagery, sexual kinkiness, and adultery.
I showed also C.S. Lewis’ mixture and confusion of Hindu and Greek gods with Christian heroes. In one instance, C.S. Lewis even equated Jesus Christ with the ancient Greek sun god Apollo, the son of the mythological Zeus.
C.S. Lewis was most fond of expressing a belief in Jesus, followed by a clarifying exclamation, "Jesus was the fulfillment of myth." According to Lewis, Jesus deserved worship because he was, "the myth that had come true."
As I pointed out in my book, Ravaged by the New Age, Lewis also taught in his novels, the Chronicles of Narnia series, that all service done by a person on behalf of Lucifer and the dark side was, in fact, also credited by God as service to him!
In Lewis’ nonfiction writings, we discover his belief in evolution, in the Catholic version of Mary, and in the odd notion that in our "next lives," Christians may just become planets, stars, or other heavenly objects.
Moreover, Lewis believed the Bible to be flawed, and suggested that Jesus was an ignorant prophet, regrettably tied to the Jewish messianic myth. Lewis further suggested that Jesus’ prophecies had failed to come to pass.
Nevertheless, all these thing being so, the fantasy books of C.S. Lewis have for decades been super sellers in both Christian and New Age occult bookstores. For my efforts in warning Christian parents to keep Lewis’ wicked and foul books far from their kids, many a Christian bookstore owner and manager responded by angrily pulling Texe Marrs’ books off their shelves and banning them forever from their premises.
Pottermania Invades Christian Homes
Now come the Harry Potter witchcraft books by yet another British author. Ms. J.K. Rowling. The plots of these books are centered around the witchcraft and magical exploits of a young boy, Harry, who goes off to learn his craft at an academy of witchcraft and wizardry after his sorcerer parents are murdered by another sorcerer. As each book is released in this New York Times bestseller series, we find the content and theme growing darker and more involved in the deep things of Satan.
Millions of copies of these Harry Potter books are selling like hotcakes—and Christian children and parents are leading the pack in lusting after them. And why not? These kids have been fed the soul-darkening fantasies of occultist C.S. Lewis, and they have been dumbed down sufficiently by ecumenical pastors and charismatic Word of Faith evangelists. Their hearts and minds are already stained by the filth and degradation viewed daily on TV and by the polluted music and rotten doctrines spouted in their upside-down, pseudo-Christian churches.
So debased have the minds of our children become, they are prone to believe that the 60’s Woodstock was a Christian rock festival and that Roman Emperor Nero’s wild sexual orgies were, historically, just one more example of a variety of entertaining and flesh-thrilling experiences available to us today.
A Christian Book Burning?
It was, of course, the apostle Paul who lashed out at the pagan lifestyle and practices rampant in society during the early Christian era. In the book of Acts, we find the encouraging statement that many new Christians who had previously "used curious arts"—that is, sorcery, witchcraft, and magic—"brought their books together and burned them before all men..."(Acts 19:19).
Imagine! These Christians took books much like C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia and Rowlings’ Harry Potter volumes and had a big, public, book burning!
And what was the end result of such incredibly bold behavior? The very next verse in the book of Acts reveals exactly what next happened:
|"So mightily grew the Word of God and prevailed."
Please read that inspiring statement again and think about the consequences. The Christians brought out their magical and witchcraft books and publicly burned them, and "So mightily grew the Word of God and prevailed."
Now, consider today’s results. In our 21st century society, Christians flock to the bookstores to obtain works of the curious arts. Thus, the Word of God is declared null and void in their lives, their children’s souls are turned over to Satan, and their tainted churches, hopelessly adrift in a sea of filthiness and uncleanness, cannot possibly prevail.
But where are God’s watchmen—the men whom, we are told by the Christian media, the Lord has called to guide us forward into this luminous New Age of 21st century spiritualism? They are lying right in bed with the sorceress and are eagerly obeying the serpent. These men, with their pitch-black hearts, are literally embracing Satan’s works and promoting them for all they are worth. Our own "Christian" leadership is insuring that America is cursed by God!
Colson and Others Endorse Witchcraft Themes
You say you don’t believe me? Well, then, what about Charles Colson, he who is so beloved by the Southern Baptists, by the Catholics, by the Episcopals, by all the Christian world? On his daily Breakpoint radio program, Colson recently advised parents to disregard the naysayers. The Harry Potter books are fine examples of good Christian-oriented literature, said the smooth, silver-tongued Colson. They are, he smugly added, highly recommended.
If that were not enough, we also have James Dobson’s Focus on the Family recommending the Harry Potter books as wholesome. Next, the editors of Christianity Today, the magazine founded by Billy Graham, chimed in, calling the Harry Potter series a "Book of Virtues with a preadolescent funnybone." The magazine also praised the books as "wonderful examples of compassion, loyalty, courage, friendship, and even self-sacrifice."
These gushing recommendations were made in spite of the blatant and clear witchcraft prevalent in the Harry Potter books. In one scene in the novels, we find a professor whose leg is mangled by a three-headed dog. In another, a mysterious figure drinks blood from a unicorn carcass. In the books we see young Harry lying, breaking rules, making fun of and mocking adults, and seeking revenge. To defeat his foes, Harry uses magic and witchcraft rituals and methods. On his forehead, notably, is the rune symbol of the satanic lightning bolt.
Nevertheless, in response to Christians who write to him complaining, Christian celebrity leader Charles Colson, head of Prison Fellowship, insists that the magic in the Potter books is not really occultic, just "inventive."
White vs. Black Witchcraft
Other Christian leaders try to whitewash their failure to condemn these satanic novels by attempting to portray Harry’s magic as "White Witchcraft," which they say is "good magic," versus "Black Witchcraft", which is "evil magic."
But in his Satanic Bible, the late Anton LaVey, High Priest of the Church of Satan, scoffed at such a distinction. "There is no difference in Satanism," sneered LaVey, "between white and black witchcraft or magic."
While the jaded and spiritually bankrupt Christian establishment either promotes the idea of "good magic" and "white witchcraft" or is altogether silent, the true Christian remnant is fighting these evil books. Parents in 28 states have sought to have the Harry Potter books banned at public school libraries.
Yet, few dare mention the fact that the C.S. Lewis books—which are even more vile and more blatantly occultic—continue to be sold in Christian bookstores, endorsed by Hank Hanegraaff, Chuck Colson, Billy Graham, and other leaders, and quoted each Sunday in dozens of "conservative" Southern Baptist and other churches!
This phenomenon is only one striking example of the witchcraft explosion that has erupted and is now ravaging the Christian establishment. In the Intelligence Examiner exclusive offered in this month’s Power of Prophecy newsletter, I document this widespread occultic invasion.
You will see, for example, how Lucifer is now exalted by some pastors as a "good angel," how the goddess "Sophia" is replacing Jesus Christ in some large churches, how scholars are denying and debunking the very words of Jesus, how the lure of sexual intercourse "entertainment" is being used to entice people to come to church to see sexually oriented theater productions, how Charismatic big-wigs have been recruited by the Vatican’s Knights of Malta secret society, how faith healer Benny Hinn has been caught on camera encouraging gospel singer Steve Brock to smoke a water pipe, how famous TBN preacher and bestselling author T.D. Jakes has betrayed the true faith by endorsing for President an avid abortionist/homosexual activist, Vice President Al Gore, how Pat Robertson’s Masonic connections were made manifest...and on and on.
You’ll also discover the horrible facts about actual, so-called underground "Christian" churches in the U.S.A. and Great Britain now performing unholy satanic black masses, with naked women draped over altars.
The horrors are only beginning and will escalate until Jesus returns. Until He does, let us expose the evildoers (Ephesians 5:11) and let us take courage knowing that God is still on the throne. He sees, He knows, and His judgement is swift and certain. I thus say to the wicked who seek to despoil Christianity: "You will not succeed. The remnant shall remain, a righteous, blood-bought church without spot or wrinkle. Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!"
