Witchcraft, Demonism, Spiritism, Craft, Sorcery and Occultism
"and through his policy also he (antichrist) shall cause craft to prosper in his hand." Daniel 8: 25

As our school curriculums become more and more awash in occultism--- complete with wizardry, magic and curses--- it is imperative that our knowledge in the spiritual realm advance to that of a PHD. (Professing Holy Discernment). Each one of us needs to ask the Lord each day to be able to discern when something is of an evil spirit, even though it be dressed up as "harmless". Are the Harry Potter books" harmless" ? Not if they are teaching our children to engage in wizardry and magic , and thus opening the door to witchcraft and occultism.

There are many who are enlightening us all to the deviousness and subtlety within school curriculums, which for the most part today have become schools of indoctrination and propaganda (replete with the force of peer-pressure to engage in what the Bible terms "abominations".)

Berit Kjos has studied the many ramifications of corrupted-education, and how it impacts all of society.
Here are her enlightenong articles at
www.crossroad.to/text/articles.html

As one reads the incriminating evidence, one begins to realize how much we are all being tainted by the liberal agenda being put forth in our school systems (and greatly funded by our tax dollars)
For the Born-Again Christian, this amounts to
taxation without representation. Our Judeo-Christian value system is being trodden under blatantly by the powers that be (PTB) , who must stomp on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in order to take our freedoms away.

For those of us who would like to learn what we can do about all the spiritism coming against our children, neighborhoods, community and media, we have compiled a list of references "for such a time as this".

We know that Satan's time is short to do his evil work before Our Lord's return. We are told that in the Book of Revelation 12:12...
"Woe to the inhabitors of the earth and of the sea ! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time."
It is in that very same chapter of Revelation that Satan's many names are mentioned:
"another wonder, great red dragon, that old serpent, the Devil, Satan, the accuser of our brethren".

Satan is also called "an angel of light " for he masquerades so very well as being religious....

" For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."
2 Corinthians 11:13,14.

These being the Last Days, we are told that the False Messiah will "cause craft to prosper" Daniel 8:25 .
We need therefore to put on the whole armor of God.
"Putting on the Whole Armor" by Berit Kjos www.crossroad.to/text/articles/armorofgod.html

BLOOD - COVERING
That Armor is having the Word of God abiding in us, which teaches us
to cover ourselves under the Blood of Jesus Christ for protection. It teaches us to abhor and refrain from all evil;
and that if we flee Satan, he will flee from us. James 4:7.
Without that Word of God, we perish for lack of knowledge" Hosea 4:6

Drugs : Anti- depressants and suicides
" Patients on some popular antidepressants should be closely monitored for warning signs of suicide, the government warned Monday in asking the makers of 10 drugs to add the caution to their labels
The drugs of concern are all newer-generation antidepressants:
Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, Effexor, Celexa, Remeron, Lexapro, Luvox, Serzone and Wellbutrin.
Most are known to affect the brain chemical serotonin. "

Depression occurs in up to 10 percent of youth, and 1, 883 10-to19-year-olds killed themselves in 2001.
Some 1.8 million teenagers attempted suicide that year, a quarter of them requiring medical attention, according to Columbia University scientists who are helping the FDA's probe.

In 2002, almost 11 million prescriptions were dispensed to patients under 18 for SSRIs and other newer antidepressants, to treat depression and a host of other conditions, FDA said. "http://apnews.myway.com/article/20040322/D81FJ3UG0.html

But skeptics say it's not spirituality or magic that makes alternative therapies work, but the placebo effect.
''The hospitals are integrating it
because it pays,'' said Pat Linse, co-founder of the Skeptics Society in California. ''You don't find 'alternative chemistry' or 'alternative physics,
...... ' just '
alternative medicine.'''

3. MEDITATION
New Age? The
similarities between centering prayer and Transcendental Meditation are striking.

"As an ex-TM mediator," says Fr. Finbarr Flanagan, O.F.M., "I find it hard to see any differences between centering prayer and Transcendental Meditation."
Frs. Keating, Menninger, and Pennington authored centering prayer at a time when St. Joseph Abbey had received several retreats involving Eastern religions, including Transcendental Meditation.
I cited Fr. Pennington’s praise for the Hindu guru and author of Transcendental Meditation. This involvement in eclecticism has continued. Fr. Pennington has not just attended an e.s.t (Erhard Sensitivity Training) session but has served on its board.
Frs. Keating and Pennington gave endorsements, appearing on the dust jacket, for
"Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey in Christian Hermeticism."
The tarot is a deck of cards used in fortune telling. Fr. Keating calls the book "the greatest contribution to date toward the rediscovery and renewal of the Christian contemplative tradition." Fr. Pennington says it is "without doubt the most extraordinary work I have ever read." Amity House, the publisher, is heavily New Age. The Library of Congress has classified the book under "occult sciences" and "cartomancy."

SUICIDE: 3 teenagers jump to their deaths after meddling with the occult
15 die (in year's total) for involvement with Satanism and the occult
Aug. 28-2001 The TIMES UK


From World Affairs Brief : www.joelskousen.com Nov. 1, 2002

MOOD-ALTERING ANTI-DEPRESSION DRUGS HAVE POWERFUL WITHDRAWAL EFFECTS

Troubling evidence is beginning to mount against America’s most popular anti-depression drugs (Prozac, Paxil, Zoloft, etc.). Specifically, the growing number of cases of suicide taking place in the wake of withdrawal from these drugs has led to increased doubts about doctors’ assurances they are safe. Horror stories are mounting about the inability of certain patients to even stop taking these drugs due to powerful side effects – some of them life-threatening, or emotionally debilitating.

In the October 20, 2002 NY Post article, "Darker Side to the 9/11 ‘Wonder Pill’" Susan Edelman writes, "that grieving 9/11 widows who had been prescribed Paxil experienced severe withdrawal symptoms and ncharacteristic suicidal urges when they attempted to stop taking the drug. GlaxoSmithKline insists Paxil is non-habit forming, but some former Paxil users say they went through hell when they quit popping the pills. ‘When I stopped taking it, I got so sick I couldn't function. It was like temporary insanity,’ said Ann Cantera, of Sayville, R.I., who began taking Paxil for pre-menstrual depression. ‘I was crying and crying and crying, and consumed with suicidal thoughts.’"

Beth Hawkins, in an October 16 article in the alternative weekly, City Pages, reported, "In 1993, five months after Paxil went on the market in the United States, a study presented at the American Psychiatric Association's annual meeting found that up to 42 percent of individuals suffered withdrawal symptoms when they stopped taking the drug. ... Since 1994 some 16 studies found ‘withdrawal syndrome’ in up to half of individuals attempting to quit taking SSRIs [Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors]; all the studies noted that the problem was the worst with Paxil. In an Australian study, Paxil caused withdrawal three times as often as Zoloft and four times as often as Prozac. The second-highest rate of withdrawal is reported with another SSRI with a short half-life, Luvox."

If you have family or friends taking these drugs (most patients taking such drugs do so for long periods of time), encourage them to quit, but emphasize that they must taper off on the dosage very slowly and be constantly monitored for suicidal depression. Effective, long-term management of depression can be accomplished by helping people develop higher self-control skills and learn to recognize the small promptings of conscience that help guide a person out of self-defeating behavior. Two effective principles of following conscience are appropriate for all ages:

1) Don’t do anything you feel nervous about (as to the correctness).

2) Always force yourself to do what you know you should do – especially when you don’t feel like it.

Everyone should memorize these two principles. The first teaches people to be sensitive to the messages that come from conscience warning of danger, or of bad decisions. Avoiding mistakes in life keeps the feelings of depression that can follow failure at a minimum. The second helps people come out of depression better than any other piece of advice I know. All successful people must learn to quit moping about problems and get up quickly and do what they know they should be doing at any given moment. Depression is hard to maintain when one is busy and active.

It’s not easy, but learning to change and control self-defeating behavior is the only long term solution for combating depression. Sadly, years of parental tolerance of bad behavior and bad attitudes of their children (influenced by music, movies and peers) leads to chronic loss of self-esteem and depression in many individuals. Yes, sometimes chemical imbalance is present – but it’s not the root cause; it’s merely the result of chronically and persistently inculcating these damaging bad attitudes. Drugs are not, therefore, the solution; they only suppress the symptoms temporarily. Prevention via good discipline is the best approach, and redeveloping strong discipline and sensitivity to conscience is the key to recovery after a problem develops.

First School for witches and wizards opens up in Austria [the Sorcerer's apprentice] Sept. 2002
Students can take a six-semester course, including learning to make potions and cast spells, ending in a "sorcerers' diploma."
The school is located in the mountains of Klagenfurt in southern Austria.
The school caters for three classes of students. This year up to 15 sorcerers' apprentices will be taught astrology, magic, history of magic, meditation and divination and later put their theoretical studies into practice: preparing potions, making talismans and performing rituals.
Etymologically, 'witch' means someone who is on the border between our world and the beyond," he added, saying the aim of the courses was "to restore contact with nature, which has been lost by our society."
