Beware the Occult

Posted on July 28, 2011 at 9:11 AM Comments comments ()

Some people think that playing around with ouija boards and tarot cards and horoscopes is all harmless fun. But it isn't. God hates those things, because people who get involved with these things can be pulled into them, and then the person starts to place his trust in them, instead of HIM.

The movie "The Exorcist" was based on a true story of a young boy and his aunt, who taught him to contact the dead spirits through a ouija board. But they aren't dead spirits - they are demons masquerading as dead humans.   A Ouija board is a demonic gateway, as is all occultic practice. The Bible condemns these things over and over again, both in the Old Testament AND the New Testament. So if you are reading your daily horoscope, or consulting fortune tellers to gain hidden knowledge about the future or someone you know, go to confession and get rid of these practices, ASAP.  

Once you do these occultic things, the demons have a right to attach themselves to you and your life, because you told God that you don't really trust in Him by doing these things.  Start saying your rosary EVERY day instead of consulting the "spirits" to gain arcane knowledge.  Mary is the terror of demons, and she will chase them away for you....

An excellent article on the dangers of playing around with the occult can be found HERE .

Revelation 21:8: But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, as for murderers, fornicators, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their lot shall be in the lake that burns with fire and sulphur, which is the second death."
