SATANISM ON THE INCREASE
The rapid growth of Satan worship and similarly related cults has many
people worried. Law enforcement agencies, clergy, and even animal-rights
activists are dealing with a problem that grows almost daily.
An article in the Kansas City Star recently told of the violence of these
groups in this area. Police are consulting theologians to learn more of
Satan, his powers and the manner in which he is worshipped.
Ceremonial meetings occur which range from sexual orgies to sacrifices of
animals and humans. One officer estimates that nationally as many as 50,000
children and young people who have been kidnapped or have run away and taken
to the streets have been killed by satanic cults.
Another officer reported evidence that some women become pregnant for the
sole purpose of having a baby to sacrifice. Local caves and deserted houses
reveal blood and satanic symbols.
One group, Santeria, from Cuba is active in south Florida and has as many as
60,000 people involved in worship. This worship includes rituals of animal
sacrifice which has angered animal-rights activists in the area.
I don’t share these facts for shock value, but to warn you and your family
that we are faced with an enemy who is against God and God’s people.
Let us be clothed continually with God’s spiritual armor. Please take time
to read Ephesians 6:10-20.
