Paganism has taken over the world. This is not surprising as the bible clearly states in the end times people will turn away from the one true living God to worship other gods.
From a Christian viewpoint, pagans are generally characterized as those who are caught up in any spiritual ceremony, act, or practice that is not distinctly Christian.Others define the term paganism as any religion outside of Christianity, judaism and islam....whereas some argue that a pagan is anyone with no religion at all.Someone who claims to be spiritual.
Pagan comes from the Latin word paganus, which means “country dweller”; paganism can refer to polytheism or the worship of more than one god, such as in ancient Rome. All pagans no matter what they name their gods have one thing in common they have a sun god + and moon god.
These modern “pagan” practices are actually similar to their ancient counterparts in that they rely heavily on hedonism—indulges in worldly delights and material possessions; sensual gratification and self-indulgence and the pursuit of happiness and pleasure to the exclusion of everything else. In ancient times, sexual ceremonies were a major part of pagan religions. The Old Testament references these perverted religions in such passages as Deuteronomy 23:17, Amos 2:7–8, and Isaiah 57:7–8.
Though they are numerous and varied in their practices and beliefs, pagans do hold to some similar beliefs. For example:
- The worship of rocks, crystals, nature , ocean , plant's ( appreciate nature do not worship it, worship the creator. )
- Everyone is considered to be part of this Mother Earth.
- The use of crystals and charms to manipulate " energy" people and things for “good” ( false light ) or evil
- black magic, or white magic ( all powered by satan)
- Divinity reveals itself in every facet of the world.
- Every being, man and animal, is a derivative of the Divine. As such, all are gods and goddess.
- Most pagan religions do not have messiahs.
- Doctrine is superseded by morals and one’s own responsibility.
- Solar and lunar cycles are significant in pagan worship.
Any form of paganism is false doctrine. Paul addressed this perversion of the truth in his letter to the believers in Rome (Romans 1:22–27). The people Paul described were worldly and materialistic, worshiping created things rather than the Creator. They worshiped trees, animals, and rocks, going so far as to abuse their bodies in deviant sexual practices to revel in their passions. Paul then goes on to tell us why they did this and the end result:
“Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done” (Romans 1:28).
In spite of common assumptions, most pagan worshipers claim they don’t believe in Satan. However, the source of all their influence comes from Satan. Though they will deny it. Paul tells us plainly how Satan works in the lives of people without God, through his power, his signs, his deceit, and his lies:
“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness” (2 Thessalonians 2:9–12).
The truth is Satan is real and alive and the evidence is in these pagan practices. This was not only clear in the times of the first-century church, but also in today’s postmodern world. To the faithful believers who know the Lord, pagan worship is what it appears to be—the power and deceit of the prince of this world, Satan (1 John 5:19), who “prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8).
With this in mind, paganism should be avoided.
All these pagan religions from Babylon, Egypt, Greece, Rome, Nordic, Hindu, Roman Catholic's, Luciferian, Wicca, New Age, Aztec ....etc the list goes on all have one thing in common they worship a a sun god + moon god. The source behind these false gods is always satan.
Pagans almost always deny this because they refuse to turn from their wicked ways because they have issues with control. They rather believe the lie instead of the truth so that they can manipulate things for their will, instead of the will of God. However witchcraft, voodoo, wicca, Santeria...whatever it is. It never works.
All of these religions also have something else in common they are all performers of witchcraft.
What is witchcraft? And why is it so problematic to your soul, life purpose, destiny and the book God wrote for your life?
Witchcraft, is a form of control, rebellion and evil. 1 Samuel 15:23 tells us that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft and stubbornness as idolatry.
To put this in more simple terms anything that you are praying for or doing that is against the will of God and against the free will of another human being is witchcraft. And I pray all witchcraft will go back to the sender's in Jesus name amen.
It is like you are trying to be God or control and make another humans being obey you. That would be witchcraft. Especially when you have no legal rights to whatever it is that you want. Stubbornness as idolatry means when you put your own wishes and opinions above what God the creator of everything wants. That means you are idolizing your own opinions and not taking into consideration what God's plan for their life is.
There is only one God, Jesus Christ is God in the flesh, the Holy Spirit is the one that dwells in believers Christians do not worship or pray to Mary. Roman Catholicism is also another huge deception, and what many do not understand is Catholics and christianity are very deferent. True christianity is not a religion it's a relationship with God. You only need God the father, God the Holy Spirit and God the son Jesus Christ . God doesn’t have a physical body so he sent Jesus Christ , the Holy Spirit is the spirit that dwells in believers of Jesus Christ, it is also the spirit that keeps believers from being deceived by Satan , his demons and his witches and workers of evil, inequality and inequity.
