The Plague of Paganism
« on: August 27, 2013, 01:03:54 AM »
Paganism is sweeping the planet, and is taking the place of Christianity in a lot of countries.  Whether it’s called the enlightenment, atheism, communism, free-thinking, Wicca, or whatever, modern paganism is a philosophy that replaces a belief in the Almighty with a belief in the greatness of man, or the power of sorcery.  Human philosophy and “what feels right” now replaces the good news of the gospel.  The proud charismatic articulators of all of this mind-candy espouse their own personal opinions of how they see the world, and then they pass it off as fact.

In the old days, these people were known as sophists – people who talked a lot and sounded great, but who never really said anything concrete.  This kind of thinking is like reversing the batteries in a flashlight; that is, making the positive end the negative end, which results in no light coming out.  The dark results of all of this are plain to see in today’s world. The pagans among us are all worried about saving mother earth from this, that, and the other.  They fail to realize that the earth was destroyed by God the first time (the great flood) because the people turned away from God, and toward sin.  The world will come to an end the second time for the exact same reason - the turning away from God (paganism) and toward sin.  The very thing the pagans don't want to happen, they will actually cause!!

Just look at what godless communism and atheism did to the people in the Soviet Union and Cuba. Thousands of people died trying to escape those lands, and millions more were executed by their own leaders in those countries.  Many more were imprisoned and put on drugs in psychiatric wards for not going along with communism. Churches were destroyed and turned into warehouses and museums. The populace turned to drinking vodka by the barrel to cope with this way of life.  Needless wars in foreign countries were started, so that this horrible way of life could be exported to the dumb masses.

Wicca is nothing more than modern day witchcraft.  The Catechism of the Catholic Church, which does not warn against things that are not real, has this to say about the occult:

2117 - All practices of magic or sorcery, by which one attempts to tame occult powers, so as to place them at one's service and have a supernatural power over others - even if this were for the sake of restoring their health - are gravely contrary to the virtue of religion. These practices are even more to be condemned when accompanied by the intention of harming someone, or when they have recourse to the intervention of demons. Wearing charms is also reprehensible. Spiritism often implies divination or magical practices; the Church for her part warns the faithful against it. Recourse to so-called traditional cures does not justify either the invocation of evil powers or the exploitation of another's credulity.

The modern world has embraced these 4 tenets of paganism big time. We now have in a lot of countries an acceptance of pornography as being normal, right, and good. This has led to a casual attitude of unlimited recreational sex.  We also have abortion and euthanasia in a lot of countries, which is human sacrifice by the millions.  And there is certainly a trend now to treat nature and the planet with a lot more respect (some might say worship) than God. And while "potions" may seem an outdated word for the 21rst century, the word "drugs" is not.  How many people have ruined their lives and others' by consuming strange substances that either altered their mind or altered their body?

This belief system is one that is being embraced by millions the world over.  And does any sane person believe that the world today is better off?  The insane leaders of North Korea and Iran now have long range missiles and nuclear weapons. Radical Islam wants to destroy Israel and America.  Abortion is killing millions of future scientists, world leaders, and problem solvers.  So-called “homosexual marriage” is being accepted the world over, along with the ghoulish embryonic stem cell research.    No, it is a VERY dark world we live in, where evil is seen as good, and good is seen as evil (Isaiah 5:20).  Satan’s words to Adam and Eve that they will be able to distinguish right from wrong like God (Genesis 3:5) are now being proven to be yet another of his lies, because good people who listen to false prophets today cannot distinguish between right and wrong, and more often than not, choose the wrong.

The so-called “enlightenment” was a period in Europe which started the French Revolution. While science can be a good thing (science almost blew up the planet during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962), the result of the French Revolution (Liberty, Equality, Fraternity) resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Catholics (not so much liberty, equality, and fraternity for them!).  Why?  Because they refused to knuckle under the hammer of Robespierre and other “enlightened” French leaders who hated Jesus Christ and His church.  The effects of “the enlightenment” are still being felt today. Every time you hear someone badmouth The Church that Jesus Christ started as being out of date with the times, for not having women priests, for not embracing homosexuality as being wonderful, as well as touting science as being the solution to all of our problems, think “the enlightenment”.  In reality, “the enlightenment” was really the dark ages, because it was the beginning of the replacement of faith in Jesus Christ with the mind of man.

The French Revolution, however, was a walk in the park concerning the destruction of Christians.  Over one hundred years later, Lenin and Stalin in Russia took this enlightenment to the next level, not only destroying Christians and churches, but trying to erase all religion in their countries as well as a lot of neighboring countries.  And what’s next?  God help us all.
