New religions

Updated on November 2, 2010

Religions today

A wave unlike any other

There is a wave flowing around the world, a wave unlike we have ever seen. Wicca and paganism. Why is paganism and Wicca so popular? They serve gods which are so vastly diferent from the Christian God. Some people involved in it don’t even realise the evil they serve, and they won’t until they move up in the ranks of those cults. There was a time when people who belonged to these cults would have kept their involvement secret, but not anymore. They flaunt it as if it is an acceptable mainstream religion; then again, perhaps it has become just that.
It was only two years ago when I was doing research on the topic of pagan rituals like hallowe'en, at that time I could not find too many sites pertaining to those beliefs; however, things have changed. Now one can find websites by the hundreds or more, to sites for paganism, Wicca and even Satanism.
These sites do not outnumber Christian sites yet as I write this, but it also would not surprise me if a time came when they will.
I do not know, nor can I understand what the fascination is with the occult, and quite frankly nor do I want to know.
What one must understand is that God is real, Jesus Christ is real; and when a person dies, there is only one of two places he/she will go, either to Heaven or to Hell.
This is not hatred, it is scriptual. The only way to eternal salvation and Heaven is through Jesus Christ, to accept Him as your personal Saviour. Again, not hatred but written in the bible, it is scriptual.
The problem is that the leaders of pagan/wiccan and even satanic cults will lie to people; after all, they serve the prince of lies, telling them that they will have powers, love, acceptance etc. What they don’t tell the people is the whole truth. Yes, they will accept and love the newcomers, they will even teach them satanic spells, but they will not tell them that when they die they will not go to Heaven, but to hades instead for eternity; yes, Hell is real and it ain’t no party.
There are many people who once were a part of those cults and have left, those people are now writing books and speaking to others about their involvement, and about what they were told to do during their time there. They are out warning people to stay away from those cults.
This insidious wave must be stopped, and people must be told the truth about these cults. How do we do this? There are two ways, and those ways are prayer and education. Some people will read this and laugh, and others will take it seriously, as it should be. Some will get offended because they do not understand, but this is truth, and it must be spoken.
Something to think about.

This hub  is not posted so we can argue or debate the Bible or the word of God, as Gods word is not debateable. This hub is just for the purpose of educating and teaching about Gods word, as His word has and will withstand the test of time.

Here are some scriptures for you to read:

“We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
—Romans 5:1

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
—John 3:16

"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
—John 10:10

“But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.”
—Isaiah 59:2

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
—Romans 3:23

"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
—Romans 6:23 (NIV)

"Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me."
—John 14:6

"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
—Romans 5:8

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me.”
—Revelation 3:20

"That if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
—Romans 10:9

"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God."
—John 1:12

      Thanks for the reply, I do distinguish between people and behaviour and people and religions. There are many religions which have people who do nasty things. I get that. I agree we aought to pray for a better future and for good things for our children,

      Thanks again.

      I appreciate you clarifying that about not all wiccans were evil. That is why i was getting so upset about it. We will never agree with each other 100%. i to pray for man kind to become better ,as well as our earth and all living things. This is my biggest prayer as well as my children to be, healthy, and happy. even before myself. These 2 prayers i say daily! blessings to you and your family.

      I did not say ALL wiccans are evil, Evil is everywhere and it is instigated by Satan who is real and who does try to prevent the truth from getting to people. I also believe that there is One God, His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit and I do believe that Jesus Christ IS the ONLY way to eternal salvation. This is not a falacy, it is a Fact. This is what I believ. I understand you believe differently and my prayer is that all people will comne to Christ and be saved so that they all can have eternal salvation. This is what I pray for. God Bless you.

      i dont expect anything. no arguing either that is for kids. but you keep deleting my comments when all they are is that. Evil is everywhere. You have that in ALL RELIGIONS, but the way you say it is like all wiccans are evil and that is not true. That would be like me saying al lchristans are stupid, which they are not but you can not put us all in one group.

      Oh my gosh 4elements, LOL, I am not going to get into this with you. You are just trying to be an instegator trying to start a ridiculous argument. I have done a great deal of research on this as well as have spoken to many ex wiccans and practicing wiccans. But you don't care about me listening to them or haveing spokebn to them, and yet you expcet me to listen to you. Also, I an an ordained minister who does know the word of God, the one and only living God the creator of Heaven and earth who is real. Just because you do not believ in Him does not mean He is not real.

      Anyhow, like I said before, enough is enough. And before you say anything else, I will delete anyones comments which are only for the purpose of starting nonsense.

      You make a very good point Thomas. I ask myself the same questions all the time. What is this obsession with evil that people have today? Could it be the new movies with all their special effects disguising evil as good that bring so much fascination? If you notice these movies involve teens and are targeting the youth.

      When did God become bad and evil become good? Why is Christianity being portrayed as a cult and the cults and New Age beliefs portrayed as the right path to follow? Satan rules the air and the airways is his domain, and this is how he reaches out to the weak and the young.

      Many are lured and seduced into the New Age beliefs and cults because people are all about self-gratification and they live in a world where they are the center of their own universe. They want things fast, and they want everything that glitters and gives them power and fame, so they are seduced by this evil that surrounds them. And many are lied to and pulled into these beliefs because it is more acceptable now to be a “witch” and enjoy the “temporary” powers that Satan gives them; it’s like a drug, once you tasted it, you want more— then you crash. They will not listen and they will not see because they are blinded by the enemy. Unless they get out of it, Satan will destroy them in the end. Thanks for your words of wisdom.
