Ritualistic Abuse: Fruit of Neo-PaganismPremium Content

The manifestation of Neo-Paganism (e.g., nature worship, self-worship, Satan worship) in many world cultures today has brought with it the ghastly phenomenon of ritualistic abuse. Ritualistic abuse, a term almost unheard of in some ministerial circles, is the lawless mistreatment of persons against their will during or as a result of pagan religious rites or exercises. Ritualistic abuse occurs in either cultic or occultic (secret worship) ceremonies. God declares ritualistic abuse to be sin and reveals in Deuteronomy 18:10: "There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire [ritualistic abuse], or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer.…"

Difficult Biblical Passages for Jehovah's Witnesses

1. 1 John 5:1 - Teaches that ALL who believe in Jesus are born again--not just a sub group (i.e., the "144,000")

3. Isaiah 6 in relationship to John 12, proving the deity of Christ. See Isaiah 6 on this web site.

4. James 1:27 - Pure and undefiled religion to visit orphans and widows. JWs completely neglect works of mercy, instead spending all of their organization's resources on spreading their ideas.

God will never allow himself to be degraded to the point of being summoned to cast a spell or to levitate an object. I can promise you that will never happen. So, right away, you can rule out most "magic" as being of the devil.

What does New Age mean?

What does New Age mean?

The New Age movement believes that mankind is at the brink of entering a "new age" which people must evolve toward, both mentally and spiritually. New Age proponents proclaim that the good in all people is actually their gods within them, lying dormant, awaiting their spiritual awakening.
