How Witchcraft Became A Brand

From Saint Michaels Ministry: As statistical studies continue to indicate that Millennials are leaving Christianity, it would seem that they are not embracing atheism, but rather some are turning to other potentially dangerous spiritual paths. 


How Witchcraft Became A Brand

There are many simple rituals practised in the house that Katie Karpetz shares with her husband in Edmonton, Alberta, from yoga to herbalism to candle magic. In the morning, she often waits for inspiration to strike before posting a photo or found image to her Instagram feed, and the mood captured will go on to determine her activities for the day.

Running her online store, The Witchery, from her home is a mixture Continue reading

7 Ways to Fend Off the Devil, From an Experienced Exorcist

Everything you need to know to protect yourself from demonic attack
By Wesley Baines, excerpted from Beliefnet.com

Demon.

The very name causes many of us an instant jolt of panic. Personified evil is an incomprehensible thing, and what we cannot understand, we fear.

These spiritual entities are, according to Christian tradition, angels that were cast out of heaven after following their leader, Satan, in rebellion against God. Because of their transgressions, they now Continue reading

Spiritual Hygiene

In the book The Rite, author Matt Baglio tells the story of one Roman Catholic Priest and his journey to Rome to learn to be an Exorcist. In the book we find that at that time the course was primarily a lecture course and I assume it still is—not being Roman Catholic I have no way of knowing if there have been any changes in the course syllabus—and any practical experience Father Gary Thomas received was through observing practicing exorcists in the greater metropolitan area of Rome. While we in the west have come to believe that all exorcisms resemble the one portrayed in the movie The Exorcist, most real exorcisms take Continue reading

By BILL SHERMAN World Religion Writer for Tulsa World

“We see a variety of (demonic) manifestations, but not for long,” said John Heim, a volunteer minister who is also a Tulsa air traffic controller.

How to Rid Yourself of Religious Spirits

KIMBERLY DANIELS for Charisma News

[Editors Note: especially in Charismatic Protestant circles, Spirits or in the case of this article, Religious Spirits, are those entities simply known as demons in other branches of Christianity.  For the uninitiated, the title above does not mean to rid oneself of religion and become an atheist but rather to exorcise those demons that prevent you from a full relationship with the Lord and his Holy Church or those demons that work through you to destroy the spirituality of others.]

How to recognize and get rid of religious spirits in your life

A family once brought a woman to our church on Steele Street and Blue Avenue in Jacksonville, Florida, who needed deliverance. We did not have deliverance teams in the church at that time; only my husband, Ardell, and I did the ministry.

This woman had come from a mental hospital in South Florida. As God is my witness, when I pulled up to the church, she was sitting in a car—and it literally was rocking. As she stepped out, the demons spoke through her.

“Kim cannot cast me out!” they shouted. “Benny Hinn cannot even cast me out! You have never met this demon!”

We took her downstairs to the basement of the church, where the woman paced back and forth, speaking in demonic voices and Continue reading

Obsession with the Paranormal can lead to unwanted results

When one reviews the statistics that posit an increasing number of those that do not believe in anything to do with religion, a growing demographic of secular, atheistic individuals that deny the existence of the spiritual realm; one cannot help but find a conundrum at Continue reading
