As we passed one of the girls stretched out her hand toward our car in a dubious gesture and said something. It might have been nothing at all, but it gave me a very uncomfortable feeling. I shared the incident with my son later and he said, “Oh, yeah! satanic worship and cults have become a real big deal around here.” Personally, this is frightening!
What of demons? What power do they have? Obviously, if they can enter a body and torment, there is evidence of some type of power. There are those in our world today who actually have web sites that tell our children satan is good and the giver of knowledge. 1 Others insist satanic cults are all myths. 2 While others provide proof, horrible, unspeakable behaviors occur within the framework of worshipping satan.3 What frightens me, is knowing there is are actual “official” satanic worship websites. This means our children have immediate access to something vile and evil.
When I was in college there was a young woman who indeed believed in the “dark side.” She shared in a variety of instances, especially when it came time for group presentation, that she was informed and involved in this kind of practice. What frightened me then, is her involvement also with girl scouts. She was a leader! I contend there is extreme likelihood she shared, even if inadvertently, with the young people she lead, her support of the dark side.
What’s as frightening, is the suggestion that many of our country’s leaders are so wrapped up in greed and power, there is an underlying of “cult-ship” which defies imagination. Even back in 1913 Woodrow Wilson made this comment: “Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” ― Woodrow Wilson, The New Freedom 4
I suggest things have worsened a great deal since the Wilson era. Are we as a country being deceived by a satanic power which will ultimately rule our nation? Is this the “New World Religion” which is on the tip of many people’s tongues? Is this why God has been removed from schools, the political arena and why some would say our world is on the cusp of World War III?
I challenge you to consider where you stand on satanic cults. Are they imagined or real? Are they a threat to our world as we know it? Do you believe satanic worship may influence our political leaders? How would you respond if your child came home from school and announced he/she had just joined a satanic cult….or even.... that their leader or a teacher was sharing their experiences from a satanic perspective?
