Kaio: Severe Deception Within a Christian Magazine for Teens


I saw this magazine at a Christian bookstore and acquired a copy. Every now and then I take a look  as to the latest popular trends, and books and what is happening in the Christian world. Your local Christian bookstore can be such a place to see what is happening, but seriously outside of some classics and purchasing a KJV Bible or two they may happen to have buried underneath "The Message" and NIV Bibles, do not expect it to be a place of truth. Now I understand a Christian author wanting to educate teens on some of these heavy issues. This is the month of October where we are having that ungodly holiday of Halloween put before us in a variety of places. Educating young people about what they see in media and elsewhere is a good idea, problem is when false ideas are delivered instead. The name of this magazine as you can see above is called "kaio" with a torch "i" in the title. Remember what I have said about torches as a symbol? That's a topic for another article.

"the torches represent the occult arts and sciences, the doctrines and dogmas by the light of which Truth is made visible." [Hall, Freemasonry of the Ancient Egyptians to Which Is Added an Interpretation of the Crata Repoa Initiation Rite , Los Angeles, The Philosophers Press, 1937, p. 122; Emphasis added] [link]
This booklet was published by a group called Focus Press and the editor's name is Joe Wells, he authors some of the articles while there are guest writers. In the introduction Joe Wells writes, "some may see the cover this issue and think we are throwing our support behind Halloween however this is not the case". He continues on writing that he wants to cover what the Word of God says about all these issues.

What I found in this booklet was more deception and serious misleading when it comes to spiritual warfare and the occult. You will see some articles that are far worse then others.  The magazine has 8 main articles in it, I won't be covering all of them, but they are mostly to deal with "Halloween" and occult themed topics.

"Our Obsession with Horror" by Adam Faughn

The first article called "Our Obsession with Horror", already brings in compromise. While they point out that entertainment is getting "harder, gorier and more intense", telling Christian young people, "So the next time you go out for a good scare, be careful. Don't get drawn into the obsession for more gore, more blood or darker themes" seems like a double message. What is a "good scare", and why should Christians have anything to do with that?

This point is repeated twice: "Enjoy a good scare, but never compromise your Christian principles." Why not tell the young people to avoid seeking horror entertainment AT ALL? This tells teens that seeking after frightening entertainment is OK as long as it's NOT TOO BAD. What a horrible message.

"Zombie Apocalypse" by Steven Schinnerer

Here was one article, on Zombies. On this blog I have questioned the constant zombie meme, wondering if it is a way to dehumanize people and help bring in more fear via the new world order. They even mention that Centers for Disease Control article that mentions zombies from some months back. They quote an atheistic zombie movie director and are correct about some of the wickedness in this "entertainment". Something really bothered me in this article, it is so blasphemous I hate even typing it. Here they seriously try to equate "jesus" to a zombie, maybe they thought this was being cool and clever, but you will see what I mean:

"By the way, there is an awesome story in the Bible about a man that was brutally murdered and came back to life because He was something more then just a natural human being. He came from a realm that none of us have ever seen, and to top it all off, He is going to come back to get you. Jesus Christ is the only true story of a man who was died and was raised from the dead, never to die again."

Do you notice some of the language here....remember the subtle use of language is used to deceive all over the place. When they say Jesus was murdered, this ignores the truth which is that Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. Such a sentence denies the power of God. This oddly reminded me of the Catholic church in that they will refer to "jesus" as a "Victim". "Realm" also is a disturbing word, it's not in the Bible ever as representative of heaven, but used to refer to a few earthly kingdoms. Also why on earth did they write the sentence, "He is going to come back to get you" in an article about zombies? A double-meaning there seems intended such as "GET YOU" in a negative fashion!

1 John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

Vampires: Fact or Fiction? by Brett Petrillo




I believe there is vampirism related to possession,leading people into the most debauched desires and acts, and those who read Ann Rice novels and do role playing and worse who get deep into occult culture who want to replicate in real life what they read. Yes in the deep recesses of goth subculture and other occult places there are those who desire to "live" as vampires even going as far to get their teeth sharpened to look like fangs or implants, and who want to drink blood. Our society has grown that sick. Just look at our culture and how many vampire books they push at the teens, it's nauseating. The article of course emphasizes the fictional aspects of vampires.

The article admits that some people believe vampires are exist, but one of thing that bothers me about this article, is the emphasis on Lilith which is a character that comes out of Jewish mysticism and the Kabbalah. I mean why inform the teens about extra-biblical myths and legends that will only bring misdirected curiosity? I can understand some warnings but it seems in this case, the teens would ask who is Lilith and go searching for literature that would tell them. Lilith is very emphasized in mystical and the occult world. Even Wiccan books never fail to mention her.

"....They claim Adam had a wife before Eve named Lilith, who was rejected by Adama and later gained the demonic power to turn people into vampires. They go on to say that after Cain killed Abel and was banished, he found Lilith and she taught him about the "power of blood" and through them vampires were born."

"Ghosts: Fact or Fiction? By Chad Stafco  



The ghosts article read kind of odd, it points out the movie Ghost Busters, which they call silly and ridiculous, actually those movies were full of occult programming but I can understand not getting into all that with the teens, but why write this?


"So we have a book--that is, the Bible-that addresses all things spiritual and yet it says nothing about the existence of ghosts in the lives of people today. There are unquestionably strange sounds and odd things we experience at times perhaps without a logical explanation. However since the Bible is without error and it mentions nothing about ghosts, logic then tell us that those ghosts stories, movies and television programs are fictional, not factual"

What is the point here, to tell the young people, spirits don't exist? Why does the Bible then warn about familiar spirits? I wrote an article on "ghost-hunting", "Seeking after Familiar Spirits in Ghost Hunting and Paranormal Societies". Remember in that article I pointed out that ghosts are not spirits of  "dead people" but evil spirits seeking to deceive. "Ghosts" do exist, spirits do exist! When they tell young people almost as if an atheist wrote this article, that "ghosts", aka "spirits are all fictional, it is a bit disturbing.

 Deuteronomy 18:11 - Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

At the end of the article is an odd "Editor's Note" [Pay attention to this as it comes up again in another article]

"Editor's Note: While we understand there isn't a particular Scripture that explicitly says ghosts don't exist today, by studying the issue, it is a logical inference that they do not."
Tell me what you think? You think those warnings about familiar spirits still apply TODAY that are written in the Bible? Sure they do! One way people can be led to unbelief is telling them that spiritual beings, even those of evil origins do not really exist.

"Demons: Fact or Fiction?" by Justin Morton 
   
Ok this is the most misleading article of them all and you will see why. In this article, they mention the movie, The Exorcist, they admit a few truths, that demons were spiritual beings, and did not have bodies, seeking after human bodies.  Of course we know in the Bible they possessed even the bodies of animals--pigs. The article is correct that demons could speak [can speak] and came under the authority of Jesus Christ. The most disturbing part of this article? Telling the teens that demon possession no longer exists today!

What led them to this conclusion? This is tied to false dispensationalist beliefs that tell Christians that there are no more demons today. The author quotes Wayne Jackson, who states "If that is the case that miraculous powers have been removed from the church's possession, including the ability to cast out demons, does it stand to reason that God would allow demons to supernaturally asault people today, thus granting Satan an undue advantage over the human family? {Reasons and Revelation, Vol. 18, No. 4}"

Are they serious, they actually believe there are no people who become possessed today? They believe there is no more casting out of demons TODAY?  That there is no more need for Christians to cast out demons or rebuke spirits in Jesus's name? This is more of the spiritual hand-tying one sees in the false apostate church and now it has been taken to an extreme never seen before.  Almost like pseudo-agnostics, they tell us demons are only something in the past and no longer really truly exist. So what does this article say in a previous and shocking paragraph? Read below:


"Demon possession still occurs today--Fiction. I know you may feel like your teachers or people you are not particularly fond of are demon possessed. I assure you that they are not! God allowed demon possession to occur in order for Jesus to build His authority and prove it was from God."
How could someone who has any spiritual truths think that there is no possession today, even the Catholics admit, that there is possession though they obviously use their own false rituals in exorcisms. There are religions such as Voodoo where they DIRECTLY seek possession and endless documentaries and more that show the results. Even when we read more and more stories of cannibals and crazed people that commit acts so vile in the news, possession explains this stuff, the drugs used open the person up to demons.

Notice something there, where they write God allowed demon possession to occur as if God was the author of evil, rather then Satan? This was hugely disturbing. I found myself thinking what a way to deceive people telling them that spiritual warfare no longer exists for today. Demons are real and still present on this earth, and every true blue believing Christian knows it. The article sums up:
"God would not allow people today to be possessed by demons if there were no way for them to be cast out. So the next time you are flipping through channels late at night and see a movie about demons, remember what's fact and what's fiction" 
This article too had one of those weird Editor Notes at the end of it:
  "Editor's Note: While we understand there isn't a particular Scripture that explicitly says demons don't have the same powers today, by studying the issue, it is a logical inference that they do not.
Wow they sure have a lot of LOGICAL INFERENCES that are NOT BIBLICALLY BASED.

What a way to confuse people! There is no consistency here whatsoever. So these warnings of Jesus supposedly do not apply to TODAY? They are so wrong and I believe seeking to deceive.

Matt 12: 42 The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here. 43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

So this article to me was the most disturbing, denying spiritual realities, denying Jesus's words and warnings. Seeking to say that biblical warnings only apply to the "past". What some call cessationism taking it to a huge extreme. What purpose is there in telling teens, that there is no demonic possession today? Of course a Christian has all power through Jesus Christ to rebuke demons, but this article does not inform young people how to stand against them, but just tells them, demons have no power, and seriously infers they "do not exist". We know as the world goes further into evil, this is definitely a set up for Christian teens to remain powerless in the face of the luciferian new world order and demonic infestations. Telling them essentially demons don't exist and are no problem TODAY sets them up for massive deception. So wonder when their favorite "Christian" rock band flashes pentagrams and other occult symbols, they think nothing of it!

"Witches: Fact or Fiction?" By Joe Wells




 The witches article is just as bad. Here the emphasis is to tell you that witches "aren't real" and yes while there are fictional green faced witches in literature, movies and elsewhere there are plenty of real ones. The article admits that the Bible speaks of witches in 1 Samuel. They also point out how the Bible speaks of "mediums and necromancers". They are right about the fact of there being no witches flyng around on brooms with a cat riding shotgun, but even here many fail to realize that the picture of a witch flying on a broom is really a symbol of the astral travel that witches undertake and that animal familiars as well as spirit guides are sought in witchcraft.

They are right that many of today's modern Wiccans find some portrayals of witches as offensive. But here too, this article takes a dive towards deception:

"There are some today with certain pagan belief systems (ex. Wicca} that are convinced they have the ability to cast spells, mix potions, and even talk with those in the "spirit world". Their worships are very ritualistic and dark with chants and dances; however the FACT of the matter is these witches have zero powers today, other than the power to influence individuals to believe false teachings. There are no green noses and hats. The brooms won't fly and there is no talking to those in the spirit world"  



As people know on this blog, I have admitted my own time in the occult and UU church as well as the Catholic church prior to salvation. Remember in the UU church there is a pagan contingent, yes the Unitarian Universalist Association has witches within it. The above article sickens me because it is so uninformed. With Wicca, while with that one I dabbled, I did not go too deep, the line I would not cross and was unable to cross was the calling up of what witches refer to as "spirit guides" [aka demons] to do one's bidding.  I felt extremely wary so simply did not cross that line.

Remember in false pagan religions and the UU church there is overlap, there were many New Agers who sought after spirit guides as well within that church. Even the Theosophists have their Ascended Masters. [I never sought after one of those either though I certainly read up on it] Today I am glad that I stayed away from that stuff. Think about someone who would tell you that those in the occult, do not talk to anyone in the "spirit world". Where do they think the power derived for those in the occult is derived but via the demons? I do not want to link to this Wiccan occult website, but here is an example I randomly took off the web:
"One of the first steps in entering any of the Pagan religions, including Wicca, is to find your spirit guide and make contact with him or her. Your spirit guide is frequently your first (or one of your first) spiritual entity you work with.
  [snip] Most choose to not reincarnate and help people from the spiritual planes as a spirit guide. They are assigned to a soul to aid them and guide them in their life toward wisdom and enlightenment. They follow the soul from lifetime to lifetime, so your spirit guides have been with you through many past lives and will still be with you in future lives. 
It is common to have more than one spirit guide. From what my spirit guide told me about it, a new spirit guide is in an apprenticeship program, where they guide someone (or more commonly a few people) under the supervision and guidance of a more experienced senior spirit guide. As a result, it is common to have a junior spirit guide and a senior spirit guide. You normally will talk with the junior spirit guide most of the time. The work of hypnotherapist Dr. Michael Newton also agrees with what my spirit guide told me, so I highly recommend reading his books Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls to learn more about spirit guides and what it is like between lifetimes."
Spirit guides and TALKING TO SPIRITS, is a core component of witchcraft.

Now these folks take the pseduo agnostic stance even here, remember one of Satan's ways of deception has been to convince the atheists and agnostics of the world that he does not exist so when Joe Wells writes "there is no talking to those in the spirit world", he is WRONG.

I knew witches and others in pagan religions who did share their dealings with the spirit world. I do not think these people were all hallucinating or making things up. Even with the sentence of saying, that "witches have zero powers" today, is also misleading. What do you think leads people into the occult but the quest for power? Remember there is a difference between a young person who reads a few witchcraft books and tries a few spells and those who have moved up the ranks into the higher levels in the occult.

As Christians we do have all power through Jesus Christ to rebuke false spirits, witchcraft and worse, but here too they tell the teens, no need for spiritual warfare, all those witches are just role-playing a "fantasy". Even here they make a convoluted statement regarding this, because obviously the Bible does warn of witches, Joe Wells writes "They only had power for a time and when miracles ceased, it appears their abilities did as well"

Deu 18:10 There shall not be found among you [any one] that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, [or] that useth divination, [or] an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 

This too is more spiritual hand-tying and telling young people falsehoods that in my opinion with all the pseudo-agnosticism regarding spiritual things will lead them to more unbelief. For others, it will simply confuse them regarding spiritual warfare telling them there is simply NO NEED, and definitely we can see where that has led the entire church as a whole. So in this booklet I saw many disturbing messages and misleading ones too. The odd repeating of these things don't really exist [today] even though they are warned of in the Bible was quite disturbing. The back cover of the book, says "Truth is Under Attack. Are You Ready?" I find myself thinking it sure is!


As far as Focus Press goes, there is a website online for them, they publish a magazine called "Think". This is an odd cover with an "O" in the middle of the masonic compass and square.


Joe Wells says he is the director of youth and culture for Focus Press in this video. Anyhow tell me what you think regarding this booklet. As we know there is a concentrated effort to deceive young people in the church, and this can range from overt to subtle. Of course I think telling young people, demons aren't really around today, is pretty OVERT.

There's obviously no ghosts, since the dead are in heaven or hell. But there are demons, and they will imitate the dead if a person will allow themselves to be deceived by that.

And yes, the "zombie" thing is getting worse and worse. Now it's a medical condition? The world is getting sicker, which is why the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only remedy.

"Editor's Note: While we understand there isn't a particular Scripture that explicitly says ghosts don't exist today, by studying the issue, it is a logical inference that they do not."

The only thing that I can think of that they might have meant, is that ghosts as people think of them do not exist, and they do not. People cannot come back from the dead and haunt you, or communicate with you. Most people assume that that is what a ghost is. They are not realizing that ghosts are satanic spirits impersonating dead people. Along with their impersonating aliens and maybe even creatures like bigfoot. Or even showing up as strange creatures such as mothman. In the past, appearing as faries, trolls, leprechauns, etc. etc. Satanic forces love to play mind games.

I also believe that demons still roam the world. Altho, I do have trouble deciding on the activities of demons and fallen angels, since I believe them to be different beings. Who does what? And what are the differences between the two?

As far as witches not having real power. Some might not. But there are those that certainly do. They fiddle around with the occult and sometimes they get "powers" not realizing that they come from satan. They think that it is "white magic", when all magic comes from satan. It's all bad. Wiccans are full of it. They are ignorant of who their real master is. Yet that think that christians are ignorant when they say that wiccans worship the devil. It ALL goes back to the devil whether they deny him or not.

I made sure to go back and write in that one article about Ghost-hunting that I believe ghosts are not the spirits of dead people but evil spirits seeking to deceive. One of the main reasons I believe for the warnings against familiar spirits in the Bible. Yes the world is getting sicker and sicker. They have sought to medicalize even the vampire saying the desire for blood is based in a medical condition...

"Porphyria: (poor-fear-E-a)
An acute medical condition which has been postulated by some scholars to have inspired the vampire myths of the past. Sufferers of porphyria have pale, flaky skin and are very sensitive to sunlight. Their gums often recede excessively, giving their teeth an elongated and possibly fang-like appearance. Porphyria is caused by a deficiency in the enzyme which helps produce heme, a constituent of the blood which helps carry oxygen through the body. Dr. David Dolphin was the first to suggest that porphyria was the inspiration for at least some of the Mediaeval vampire myths, contending that some of the sufferers may have been driven to drinking blood in order to relieve their symptoms. As a result, the condition has come to be known in modern times as "the Vampire Disease". This appellation is very misleading, however, as porphyria only superficially resembles the vampirism of folklore and there is no supporting evidence to Dr. Dolphin's assertion that porphyria sufferers have been driven to drinking blood by their disease"

I agree that the gospel of Jesus Christ is the only remedy.

Bible Believer said...

I probably would have considered taking their meaning as that, that ghosts, of dead people do not exist, but that is not explained in the way that ghosts are really demons. Followed up by the article in the same booklet that denies that demons exist in today's world, what are ghosts then? It's inconsistent and them saying ghosts simply do not exist, leads people to doubt realities of the spirit world, more along the atheist/agnostic/materialism/skeptic's denying of the total existence of the spirit world.
You are right that ghosts are satanic spirits impersonating the dead, I put a reminder in the article for those new to this blog, that is what is happening but they do not tell the teens this, just that the ghosts seemingly do not exist or simply are "figments" of the imagination.

I too believe the demons have shown under many guises, in the past and present too as fairies, elves, water sprites, leprechauns, mothman, and gnomes. Even other parts of the world they speak of endless spirits showing up. Those gnome commercials with the gnome selling hotel reservations are not so innocent. They show up as "aliens" too in our modern culture. Yep the mind games and lies are the focus.

Bible Believer said...

I haven't studied the difference between demons and fallen angels, I guess I see the difference between demons and the fallen angels, is that the fallen angels are a higher level and the demons are their foot soldiers carrying out their will. With demonology or even what they will advertise as Christian "deliverance" stuff be very discerning, I have seen even "deliverance" books, where the person who wrote it filled the book with endless demon names to "warn" of them and I cast that one aside pretty quickly. This wasn't a book written by Dizdar, but I'm kind of referring to Russ Dizdar territory here.

There are witches who are wannabes. Teen witches, dabblers, UUs who read Starhawk books, and then those who are much deeper into the occult system. Knowing Satanists I believe outrank the witches, the difference between knowing deceivers and servants of Lucifer and the people who are fooled by the Gaia, goddess/nature worship, crystals, New Age teachings, and Llewellyn books. There are witches and higher level occultists with power out there. I believe the lower level ones do encounter some power but do not recognize the source while the higher levels ones do know, sort of like the 33rd Masons who know who they really worship as opposed to the guy who goes to the Lodge, and while he finds the secret rituals "odd and strange" never realizes their deeper meaning. It all leads to Satan, so called white magic and black magic too.

Obviously if one is in false religions, demons abound, but knowing and willful contact and seeking after a spirit [demon] to interact with [beyond even teen forays with Ouija boards] does take things to a different level.

I do think most of the pagans, Wiccans, Celtic Pagans, New Agers, etc you encounter, are low level ones, who have been fooled by the world and the lies out there. But the others exist as well.

Yes they do say Christians are ignorant for saying Wiccans worship the devil and that is where the power for witchcraft comes from. It all goes back to Satan.

Well just by your follow up to his magazine it is clear of the intended deception to young people. I just came home from work from a job I have only been at for over a month and was thinking how blessed I am to be awakened to such things. I have only been a Christian for 5 1/2 yrs and this year the Lord has opened my eyes to so much that I was not learning or seeing in the church. There is a young lady where I work, a professed satanist, atheists, gays etc. and I am feeling like I am being put into full battle. God had me out of the work force for 4 yrs. doing some deep healing in me and now going back out there I am just shocked how dark things are, how blinded people are. Halloween is now coming and the push for people to dress up is incredible. I've asked before but where can I find chat with you or others that God has removed from the church system. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed especially seeing this young lady at work reading the freemasonary book with the GAOTU on the cover.

Thank you, Bible Believer, for exposing Kaio magazine's agenda to subvert Christian teens from the right way of the Lord.

The editor/writers for Kaio make it clear they expect the teen reader to attend horror movies so they can partake of a "good scare":

"So the next time you go out for a good scare, be careful. Don't get drawn into the obsession for more gore, more blood or darker themes."

The lies presented to the teen reader are directly opposed to the Bible: (1) (Christian) teens go to horror movies (2) they should be careful of something while they enjoy horror films (3) the "something" that teens should be careful of are the obsession for "more gore", "more blood", or darker themes.

The message Kaio is presenting to Christian teens is as follows: Horror movies are fine as long as one is careful of one's obsession for even more demonicly-themed content than one has previously been exposed to.

This article makes it easy for Christian teens to rationalize the serious sin of opening themselves up to demonic affliction by attending horror movies. Kaio wants Christian teens to embrace (rather than cast down) vain imaginations that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God.

The evil subversive message to Christian teens is obvious: Open yourselves up to the spirit of fear! It's fun to have a good scare!

Kaio of course does not mention that God (of the Bible) does not give us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind. They do not tell the teen readers the truth: fear-- in the context of a horror film-- ALWAYS comes from Satan and his demons.

There is no such thing as "good sin" (good horror movie viewing) but that's what Kaio is conditioning teens to think-- and all under a so-called Christian guise.

Another quote from Kaio's horror-moving promoting magazine article for teens:

"Enjoy a good scare, but never compromise your Christian principles."

Kaio hopes to subvert teens from Christian families to believe that they may fill their minds with images of evil such as gore, blood, murder, and demons without compromising Christian principles. (The truth is that it is impossible to fellowship with Satan in the form of horror movies without throwing out Christian/biblical principles!)

To those reading this who love Jesus Christ in sincerity, please let us not be simple. God's people must not allow our precious teenagers to be taught by anyone who has the money to publish a magazine. Prove all things.

I cant believe this Christian authors are justifying young believers to open "doors" to the demonic realm. Wow Jesus said it correct

And again he said, Whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.

Lisa Ruby said...

JL wrote: "I cant believe this Christian authors are justifying young believers to open "doors" to the demonic realm."

Christian authors won't teach young believers to open doors to the demonic realm.

Witches who pose as Christians are the ones who encourage Chritians to give place to the devil -- and they get away with it because God's people have been conditioned to know their brother/sister by their profession instead of by their fruit.

Lisa Ruby said...

Speaking of the things witches do to lead Christians astray, take a look at the cover of Joe Wells' book, Absolutely.

Compare the wands Joe Wells' used to "mark" his book with these cartoon wands. They are the same!

(Wands are used in magick.)

Hi Leahlive,

Yes I think this is intended deception.

I am glad God is showing you things too, I praise Him everyday for showing me things as well, and nope they will not talk about this stuff in the churches.

I know the workplace can be tough especially if you are working with those who reject God. I would witness as much as you can , and and follow the biblical mandate of trying to live in peace with all men, but yes it can be hard. I think things have grown far more dark even over 4 years, even doing this blog over the time [2 and half years], very rapid changes on some fronts.

You can email me at biblebeliever2@gmail.com

I know finding others removed from the church system is not always easy. Even there, one has to be careful of the Emergent network infiltrating home churches.

She read a pro-freemasonry book that was pro-NWO? LOL that would have been an interesting conversation for me. I would say something to her.

I told these folks I know who incorporated that symbol into art work, that it was a sign for the new world order and of evil, and explained. They do accept evil within the world as happening but are not Christian. It gave me an avenue to witness to them.

Bible Believer said...

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for your comments too.

There is no such thing as a good horror movie of a "good scare". I ask what is good about being scared? There is nothing positive about it.

That line was meant to basically tell the teens, they can go to horror movies as long as they "are not too bad". Well they are getting worse and one thing I've noticed from all these TV commercials I have to end up turning off while watching other shows, is POSSESSION is big now in the horror movies. It is sick. A lot of those movies aren't as blood splattered as their other disgusting movies, but just as evil. So think about that, some of those teens would think well we were told to avoid the "gorey" and the "bloody" but this movie with the possessed person with green eyes chasing everyone around isn't so bad.
So yes, that message leaves a teen open to exploring "good scares" and horror movies that are supposedly "not so bad".

It definitely leads to a rationalization, the teen would say "hey I read Kaio magazine, this horror movie is not so bad, I can watch it!", even though it is full of demon possessed people and other evil messages.

So you are right, it tells them "Have a good scare", open yourself up to fear!

So yes this is definite false messages to get the teens to compromise and embrace things they should have nothing to do with.

I agree with you too, about those who present themselves as "Christians" who are out to deceive.

Lisa, I took a look at that book absolutely, by the way, there was another markers of FIVE on the booklet 5 spheres on the back--I forget what they call those things on strings that they clank around....

and yes he has those 5 wands with stars on them.

Last night my husband and daughter were flipping channels. Heard horrible screaming and went to check it out. Demon possession was going on and I told them to change the channel. Husband said, "It's the Family channel!". Well, family channel and/or G-rated really doesn't mean anything anymore.

I am so disgusted and saddened by the horrible programming on family channels, Disney channels, and entertainment in general. I agree, demon possession seems to be at the forefront lately.

I know some people really into the zombie apocalypse stuff. We're also having a zombie walk music and arts faire coming to our town.


I knew the regular bookstore kids section was like a sea of occult stuff. Looks like the 'Christian' bookstores are catching up.

If there was ever a time to be in prayer and in the Word, I believe it's now.

I agree. I have seen several articles in so-called christian magazines, that try to persuade people to read C.S. Lewis and Tolkien, and some even to read Harry Potter books. I don't know how those authors became popular in main stream Christianity, but it is just indicative of what is wrong with consumerism in religion.

I believe that if Jesus were walking the earth now, he would be driving out these people from the Churches. For they try to sell spirituality- making people think that they can be more spiritual by following how-to books, or by listening to certain music on their iPod.

Anyone who tries to make money off of fellow Christians, is immediately suspect in my book.

Bible Believer wrote: "Lisa, I took a look at that book absolutely, by the way, there was another markers of FIVE on the booklet 5 spheres on the back--I forget what they call those things on strings that they clank around...."

Yes, occultists regard 5 as the number of death.

Considering the lies Joe Wells promotes in his falsely-named "Christian" teen magazine, the kind of death he is promoting is spiritual death!

Yes Lisa you are correct. They are witches posing as christians.

And to Barb, you are also correct, rated G is the new PG, just as rated R is the New NC17

Demons are very much real, and they can attack those who are watching such horror movies, no matter if they are Christian or not! My kids have SEEN the demons come out of the viewing screen, to attack those watching it! C.S.Lewis and his Narnia Chronicles was one of the first ones my kids noticed. During the movie, the producers actually had the witch perform an actual spell while taping. This spell caused demons to be released into the viewing audience, and then out into the world. Philippians 4:8 says "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." This needs to be remembered when looking at such worldly things...

I'd like to point out that the 'O' you mentioned was portrayed in between the masonic 'square and compass' on the cover of 'think' magazine is actually a 'G'. From my reading up on the matter, it stands for 'god' or the 'Grand Architect' i.e the twisted, masonic version of God as the 'Grand Architect'.
