The Occult Experience (1985) documentary paganism witchcraft satanism religions of evil
In case you haven't worked it out yet: from the Constantine 'conversion' and Normans on most of what is presented to the public over the centuries as christian is run by atheist Luciferians. US Naval Intelligence vet Bill Cooper nailed it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJSGnT-j4QE Come on, wake up the old grey matter a bit and show it on the telly followed by a decent discussion programme.... but then that might defeat the objective of today's TV control freak manager cowards - former Tory party chairman running the BBC - what a sicko joke! Narrator: If the devil lives anywhere, it could be in San Francisco. Narrator: There is a gap between what we know and what we feel. Many feel the occult can bridge that gap. It can take us beyond ourselves, to the infinite. Some religions and sects enthusiastically embrace occultism as an integral esoteric aspect of mystical religious experience. This attitude is common within Wicca and many other neopagan religions. Some other religious denominations disapprove of occultism in most or all forms. They may view the occult as being anything supernatural or paranormal which is not achieved by or through God (as defined by those religious denominations), and is therefore the work of an opposing and malevolent entity. The word has negative connotations for many people, and while certain practices considered by some to be "occult" are also found within mainstream religions, in this context the term "occult" is rarely used and is sometimes substituted with "esoteric". OCCULTISM has its basis in a religious way of thinking, the roots of which stretch back into antiquity and which may be described as the Western esoteric tradition. Its principal ingredients have been identified as Gnosticism, the Hermetic treatises on alchemy and magic, Neo-Platonism, and the Kabbalah, all originating in the eastern Mediterranean area during the first few centuries AD. The following article has been written from a variety of different sources. These include: My own former experience with Witchcraft and occultism in general prior to my conversion to Christ, reading various Pagan and Wiccan literature, having Pagan and Wiccan friends, and having numerous email, message board, and chat room dialogues with those in the Pagan communities. This article will seek to identify, and assess, issues relevant to both Pagans and Christians alike, in a fair and balanced manner. Ecology Pagans of all persuasions revere nature. In fact, many individuals are attracted to Paganism as a direct result of a connection that they feel with the world around them and the beauty of the world they see. This reverence for nature leads many Pagans to the conclusion that the world itself must be divine. ""Our religion is about the sacredness of this life on this Earth, here and now. We are "Nature worshipers" so Nature is a sacred study for us. To paraphrase, we want to see Her more clearly, love Her more dearly, and follow her more nearly. Any ecological study, any bird watching, or other such activities, help us to understand Mother Gaia." (Chas S. Clifton (ed.), Modern Rites of Passage: Witchcraft Today, Book Two, 1994, p. 99). Many Christians could probably be more involved in the preservation of the planet in which we live. This, in and of itself is indeed a noble cause. Christians also recognize the beauty in the world around them, but stop short of seeing it as divine in some way. The Bible speaks of the wonder of the created realm in which we live, but goes on to reveal that this has been put in place so that people would go further and reach out for the Person who created it: "...that which is know about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood by what has been made, so that they are without excuse." (Romans 1:19-20) I cannot help but feel that Pagans and Wiccans look at the world around them, see the work of God, but then stop short of going further and looking for the Creator, and instead look to the creation itself. This is somewhat like commending a sculpture rather than the one who sculptured it. The Bible also comments on this by stating the following: "...they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator..." (Romans 1:25) The Church Many Pagans and Wiccans feel that they have been treated badly by the Church throughout history. There is certainly much truth in such a view. At times, the established Church has treated witches in terrible ways. However, a lot of Wiccans may not know that it wasn't just the witches who were persecuted. Another group also suffered. Who were they? True Christian believers! At various times throughout Christian history, evil and unregenerate men have infiltrated the established Church and caused it to fall into apostasy.

REAL Witchcraft: Myth and Reality - Witches, Occult Paranormal Documentary
REAL Witchcraft: Myth and Reality - Witches, Occult Paranormal Documentary Witchcraft (also called witchery or spellcraft) is the use of magical faculties, most commonly for religious, divinatory or medicinal purposes. This may take many forms depending on cultural context. The belief in and the practise of magic has been present since the earliest human cultures and continues to have an important religious and medicinal role in many cultures today. "Magic is central not only in 'primitive' societies but in 'high cultural' societies as well..." The concept of witchcraft as harmful is often treated as a cultural ideology providing a scapegoat for human misfortune. This was particularly the case in Early Modern Europe where witchcraft came to be seen as part of a vast diabolical conspiracy of individuals in league with the Devil undermining Christianity, eventually leading to large-scale witch-hunts, especially in Protestant Europe. Witch hunts continue to this day with tragic consequences. Since the mid-20th century Witchcraft has become the designation of a branch of contemporary Paganism, it is most notably practised in the Wiccan traditions, some of whom claim to practice a revival of pre-Abrahamic spirituality.

The possibility exists that the Freemasons could be accused of paganism because of their consistent references to the Historical or ancient world. In some ways, this is unfair to them because many of the early teachings of Christianity were based on the concepts of Plato and Aristotle. Both known to be Pagans. There are many other celebrations observed by Christianity that the Freemasons stipulate resort to paganism as well.

In respect to the secrecy of the Masonry, it has been a topic of much debate for years. The masons stipulate their secrecy is only in regards to their rituals. They state that their secrecy has been misconstrued as privacy. It refers to being just like any other organization or club. The argument against this that the majority of other common organizations don't use a secret knock for entry.

When arguments are raised about blood oaths and rituals regarding penalties for breaking the secrecy the Masons maintain that is allegorical when it comes to being in their rituals. It's meant to make the onlooker feel guilty if they are guilty of the any allegations.

It's difficult for an innocent individual who is naïve as to the arguments of the Freemasons versus the anti Mason to know who to believe. The Freemasons rely heavily on the point that there are having been many reputable government officials and men of importance that were good standing members of the masonry. It is up to the individual to determine just how much credence that holds.

The Masons will discreetly point out how they support a large number of charities. Then the counter argument against this is that organized crime has supported charities as well as so have renowned bike gangs.

One of the most controversial arguments amongst the Freemasons and the anti Mason is what is know as Occam's razor. This centers around the various teachings supposedly of devil worship amongst the higher degrees of the Mason, most around the 32 and 33rd degrees.

Freemasons stipulate they have far more proof to show they are not Satan worshippers or some sinister cult compared to the proofs of the anti Freemasons. The Freemasons believe the anti masons target non-informed public to present their case to and this is why they are believable. They use a reference or equations as to how lawyers will try to select an uninformed jury. Of course, a uniformed jury is a necessity. They must be unbiased to present a fair trial. Therefore, this equation does not make sense.

The Freemason will make the allegation that the anti Masons use the very same tactics that they accuse the Freemasons of when it comes to presenting proofs and materials. Often doing it in secrecy.

The slinging back and forth between the Freemasons and anti Freemasons has been going on for years. There is certainly nothing in the near future that gives any indication that this matter will become solved and finally put to rest. It is also evident that the Freemasons are a strong organized group that shows no signs of faltering in membership being, as they don't actively recruit.
