Sunday Devotional: Blessed are you when people hate you

Luke 6:17, 20, 22-23, 26-28

Jesus came down with the twelve….
And raising his eyes toward his disciples he said:
“…Blessed are you when people hate you,
and when they exclude and insult you,
and denounce your name as evil
on account of the Son of Man.
Rejoice and leap for joy on that day!
Behold, your reward will be great in heaven.
For their ancestors treated the prophets in the same way….
Woe to you when all speak well of you,
for their ancestors treated the false prophets in this way.
But to you who hear I say,
love your enemies,
do good to those who hate you,
bless those who curse you,
pray for those who mistreat you.”

On June 28, 2006, then-Senator Barack Obama famously proclaimed, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation”.

Eight years of his presidency only worked to further de-Christianize America, seen most vividly among the young in the graph below (source: Washington Post).

In 2014, 82% of Americans 65 and older, but only 57% of Americans 18-29 identified themselves as Christians. Younger Americans increasingly identify themselves as religiously unaffiliated: 34% of those ages 18-29  vs. 11% of those 65 and older. As recently as the 1990s, less than 1 in 10 Americans claimed no religious affiliation. By 2014, the religiously unaffiliated increased to 22% of the U.S. population. According to Robert P. Jones, author of The End of White Christian America, by 2051, if current trends continue, religiously unaffiliated Americans could comprise as large a percentage of the population as all Protestants combined — a thought that would have been unimaginable just a few decades ago.

Nature abhors a vacuum.

What the graph and Jones fail to address is that, as Americans increasingly become religiously unaffiliated, witchcraft and satanism are surging:

As Christianity wanes, come the concomitant discriminaton against and persecution of Christians: bakers, teachers, Salvation Army bell-ringers. The homosexual director of Disney’s “Beauty and Beast” declared wanting to rip the Bible to pieces. Sen. Bernie Sanders actually said faithful Christians are racist bigots, unfit for public office. In fact, a 2017 report confirmed that the U.S. government’s hostility toward Christianity spiked under President Obama.

So we shouldn’t be surprised that we are hated and abused, for “If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you.” (John 15:18)

For that hatred, we are told to “rejoice and leap for joy”. As Jeremiah 17:7-8 says:

Thus says the LORD:
Blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD,
whose hope is the LORD.
He is like a tree planted beside the waters
that stretches out its roots to the stream:
it fears not the heat when it comes;
its leaves stay green;
in the year of drought it shows no distress,
but still bears fruit.

Be strong!

May the peace and love of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you,

Tom Brady attributes his Super Bowl wins to ‘rituals’ performed by his witch wife

Tom Brady, 41, the New England Patriots quarterback, has won a phenomenal six Super Bowls, the most of any football player ever.

Last Thursday, February 11, during a shave for charity event at Gillette’s World Shaving Headquarters in Boston, Brady said he attributes his Super Bowl wins to the pre-game “rituals” performed by his wife, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen, 38, a self-described witch.

CBS Boston reports that as he had his playoff beard shaved off for charity, Brady told the audience, who intermittently laughed uproariously because, you know, witchcraft is just so darn funny:

“I’ve learned a lot from my wife over the years. She’s so about the power of intention, you know, and believing things that are really going to happen. And she always makes a little altar for me at the game because she just wills it so much.

So she put together a little altar for me that I could bring with pictures of my kids, and I have these little special stones and healing stones and protection stones and she has me wear a necklace and take these drops she makes. I say all these mantras.

I stopped questioning her a long time ago. I did. I just shut up and listened. And at first I thought this is kind of crazy. And then, about four years ago, we were playing the Seahawks and she said, ‘You better listen to me, this is your year, but this is all the things you’re going to have to do to win.’ And I did all those things, and by God, you know, it worked.

And then in 2016, it was about early January, she said, “You know how much I love you, but this is not gonna be your year.’ I said, “What does 60 look like?” She said, “60 is going to be your year.’ So it was early January this year, I said, asking, ‘Babe, do we have a chance?” She said, ‘Yeah, but you’re going to have to do a lot of work, and you’re really going to have to listen to me.’ So, man, I listen to her. Right after the game, she said, ‘See, I did a lot of work.’ She said, ‘You’re lucky you married a witch – I’m just a good witch.'”

You can listen to Brady for yourself by going to the CBS Boston video.

Raised a Catholic, Brady and Bündchen married on February 26, 2009, in a small Catholic ceremony in Santa Monica, California. Brady’s health regimen includes Transcendental Meditation and yoga.

Prominent Democrats dress up as the Devil

In an email, a reader of FOTM castigated me for referring to Democrats as “Demonrats” because, he claims, my doing so undermines my “credibility”.

Credibility? What a joke, coming from this reader who, several months ago, in a bid to elicit my sympathy, claimed to be “dying” from brain cancer, but no doctor had actually diagnosed him as such.

I don’t use words lightly. Democrats, by their stance on abortion — which, in the state of New York, is now legal abortion up to the moment of birth — and other issues, in fact are demonic.

This post — on the curious penchant of prominent Democrats to dress themselves up as the Devil — provides yet another example of why I call them Demonrats.

From Wikipedia:

August Belmont Sr. (December 8, 1813 – November 24, 1890) was a German Jewish-American politician, financier, foreign diplomat, and party chairman of the Democratic National Committee during the 1860s, and later a horse-breeder and racehorse owner….

Belmont was born with the name Isaac Belmont to a Jewish family in Alzey, in the Grand Duchy of Hesse, in Germany on December 8, 1813….

He attended The Philanthropin, a Jewish school, until he began his first job as an apprentice to the Rothschild banking firm in Frankfurt….

Belmont threw lavish balls and dinner parties, receiving mixed reviews from New York’s high society. He was an avid sportsman, and the famed Belmont Stakes thoroughbred horse race is named in his honor.

On August 11, 1848, a grand social event of New York’s high society — the Fancy Dress Ball — took place in Saratoga Springs, New York. The name reflects the presence of mineral springs in the area, which has made Saratoga a popular resort destination for over 200 years. Today, Saratoga Springs is ranked 10th in the list of the top 10 places to live in New York State for 2014, according to the national online real estate brokerage Movoto.

Back to the Fancy Dress Ball of 1848.

It was reported, admiringly, that one of the “richest” dresses in the Ball was that of August Belmont, who would be Chair of the Democratic National Committee. From the New York Herald, August 14, 1848, p. 2:

Mr. Auguste Belmont, agent of Messrs. Rothschilds, chose the character of Le Diable Boiteux. The costume was composed of the richest red and black velvet, decorated and trimmed with demons and fantastical figures. It was looked upon as one of the richest dresses in the room, and said to have cost two hundred dollars. The character was well sustained.

In 2019 dollars, $200 in 1848 is the equivalent of $6,250 today, according to Inflation Calculator.

Le Diable Boiteux (The Devil Upon Two Sticks) is a 1707 novel, set in Madrid, by French writer Alain-René Lesage about Asmodeus, the king of demons, whom  Renaissance Christians called the King of the Nine Hells. Asmodeus also is referred to as one of the seven princes of Hell.

That means August Belmont dressed himself as Asmodeus, a king of demons.

Below is a screenshot of the New York Herald article, pp. 1-2:

Fast forward 171 years to today.

Beto O’Rourke, 46, is one of the new darlings of the Democrat Party.

A former 3-term representative for Texas’s 16th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives, O’Rourke narrowly lost the 2018 Texas Senate race to Republican incumbent Ted Cruz.

On January 24, 2019, Mike Adams of Natural News reports that:

Celebrated left-wing political candidate Beto O’Rourke has been caught on video wearing a “Devil goat” costume complete with what appear to be horns or ears as part of a bizarre mask and a freakish one-piece costume. He sported this outfit while performing on stage, raising questions about his ties to Satan worship.

The media is now desperately trying to spin the emerging video as a comedy band gimmick, claiming the mask is a “sheep” mask, not the symbol of Baphomet, which is tied to Satanism and the occult.

Here’s a screenshot from the video of O’Rourke in the Baphomet costume:

The Baphomet was first drawn and popularized in 1854 by occultist Eliphas Lévi in his book, Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie (Dogmas and Rituals of High Magic) — a winged, horned, androgynous, humanoid goat with breasts and phallus. (See “The Devil is transgender”)

Levi called his image the Baphomet — “The Sabbatic Goat” and “The Goat of Mendes.” Lévi’s Baphomet is the source of the Rider-Waite Tarot image of the Devil. The Baphomet goat, together with the downward-pointed pentagram, was adopted as the official symbol (the Sigil of Baphomet) of the Church of Satan and continues to be used among Satanists. (Wikipedia)

And lest we forget, there’s also this rumored pic of Obama dressed as the Baphomet:

Now ask yourself this:

Why would anyone choose to dress him/herself up as the Devil?

Actor Christian Bale thanks Satan at 2019 Golden Globes

During the Golden Globes last Sunday night, actor Christian Bale was awarded Best Actor in a musical or comedy motion picture for his role in Vice, the movie about former VP Dick Cheney which National Review calls an “anti-Bush” “anti-Conservative vitriol”.

In his acceptance speech, Bale, who sported a goatee like a caricature of Mephistopheles, thanked Satan.

He said (o:30 mark): “Thank you, Satan, for giving me inspiration on how to play this role.”

Gateway Pundit reminds us of this video of Bale raging, thrashing, and abusing the director of photography on the set of Terminator Salvation in July 2008.

Comments on YouTube say the video is a re-enactment of an actual Bale audio, which is why in the video re-enactment, the face of the actor playing Bale is blurred.

After the audio of Bale’s foul-mouthed tirade at Terminator Salvation director of photography Shane Hurlbut was released onto the internet, Bale spoke to Los Angeles radio station KROQ. He apologized for his rant, calling it “inexcusable” and said he had “acted like a punk”: “I was out of order beyond belief. I make no excuses for it.” (The Guardian)

Sunday Devotional: Do not be amazed if the world hates you

1 John 3:1-3, 6-8, 10, 13, 19-24

See what love the Father has bestowed on us
that we may be called the children of God.
And so we are.
The reason the world does not know us
is that it did not know him.
Beloved, we are God’s children now;
what we shall be has not yet been revealed.
We do know that when it is revealed
we shall be like him,
for we shall see him as he is.
Everyone who has this hope based on him
makes himself pure, as he is pure….
No one who remains in him sins;
no one who sins has seen him or known him.
Children, let no one deceive you.
The person who acts in righteousness is righteous,
just as he is righteous.
Whoever sins belongs to the devil,
because the devil has sinned from the beginning.
Indeed, the Son of God was revealed
to destroy the works of the devil….
In this way,
the children of God and the children of the devil are made plain;
no one who fails to act in righteousness belongs to God,
nor anyone who does not love his brother….
Do not be amazed, [then,] brothers, if the world hates you….
[Now] this is how we shall know that we belong to the truth
and reassure our hearts before him in whatever our hearts condemn,
for God is greater than our hearts and knows everything.
Beloved, if our hearts do not condemn us,
we have confidence in God and receive from him whatever we ask,
because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.
And his commandment is this:
we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ,
and love one another just as he commanded us.
Those who keep his commandments remain in him,
and he in them,
and the way we know that he remains in us
is from the Spirit he gave us.

Five days ago, we celebrated the Nativity of Jesus the Christ.

This Sunday’s reading from 1 John 3 is rich with joy, mystery, instruction, and warning.

We are joyful that we are the children of God, and intrigued by the promise that “what we shall be has not yet been revealed” and that when our time comes, we shall see God “as he is”.

How awesome is that!

But we are reminded that for this to happen, we must be pure, “belong to the truth” and keep His commandments, because “No one who remains in him sins”.

It is in so doing that we are true “children of God,” instead of “children of the devil”. But it is also precisely because we are “children of God” that we are hated by the world, which should neither surprise nor dishearten us, for being the object of the fallen world’s hatred and abuse means we are on the right path.

And so, the battle lines are drawn.

It isn’t and won’t be easy. We are and will be reviled and scorned, not because we’ve done something wrong, but precisely because we fight for truth instead of lies, good instead of evil.

And when our hopes are dashed and our spirits deflated, just remember this promise:

Beloved, we are God’s children now;
what we shall be has not yet been revealed.
We do know that when it is revealed
we shall be like him,
for we shall see him as he is.”

May the joy and peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you,

Satanism comes to North Carolina State University as a student club

William Nardi reports for The College Fix, Dec. 24, 2018, that a new student club, Satanic Students at NC State, just completed its inaugural semester at North Carolina State University (NCSU), a taxpayer-funded public university.

According to the satanic club’s website:

The mission of Satanic Students at NC State University is to 1) encourage benevolence and empathy among all people, 2) reject tyrannical authority, 3) advocate scientific examination of the universe and our place in it, 4) promote morality and justice based on rational, humanistic values, and 5) be directed by the human conscience to undertake noble pursuits guided by the individual will.

According to Technician, the official student newspaper of NC State University, a recent slide presentation at a Satanic Students meeting denied that the club worships Satan because “Satan doesn’t exist”.

That doesn’t make any sense. If the Satanic Students at NC State believe Satan doesn’t exist, then why call the club “Satanic”?

The satanic club’s founder and president is Peter Aker, a third-year studying chemical engineering. He said the purpose of the club is not to be inflammatory or to promote any particular system of beliefs, but that “Satanism is more of a philosophy and ideology, and not so much a religion. We don’t believe in a literal Satan. Instead, we use its philosophy and the symbology behind it to form our opinions on the way the world should go.”

Aker claims his club has “the same amount of validity” as other religious groups on campus, but has a better message — “It’s more modern. It’s less restrictive and puritan. We don’t preach that you’re going to go to Hell if you do bad things … What matters is what you do here, while you’re alive.”

In other words, it’s the same old Aleister Crowleyism — Do As Thou Will.

Aker admitted that his club’s five-part mission statement is based loosely off of the seven tenets of The Satanic Temple, which Aker lauds for advocating topics such as women’s reproductive rights that was promoted by several of the temple’s chapters as “Menstruatin’ With Satan,” in which feminine health care products were collected and redistributed to communities in need.

Alec Nabinger, a fourth-year student studying sustainable materials and technology, described some of Satanic Students’ principles to which he was drawn when he joined the club: “It’s more of just, the Satanic ideals of bodily autonomy, knowledge through science, accountability.”

Aker said the club has 8 members.

A 2017 column in Crisis Magazine addressed the rise of “Satanism” groups in America (Breitbart):

The real issue is all about the mainstreaming of Satanism in America. Much as the same-sex ‘marriage’ debate was about acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle, so also Satanic groups seek social acceptance. Indeed, this is what the Satanists themselves declare. For them, it has nothing to do with religious practices. Many of them even allege they have none. They simply want to mainstream Satanism so that it will be viewed as normal.

DEMENTED: Mom sings lullaby before aborting baby

Video NSFW due to some language.

A very disturbing video from the Michael Anderson Show. From his description:

“This video shows an activist group called “Ohio Religious Coalition for Reproductive Rights” hosting a pro-abortion rally titled, “Holy Ground: Blessing the Sacred Space of Decision” at Your Choice Healthcare, a non-surgical abortion facility. The event consisted of calling on “God” (Satan or some sh*t to be honest) to bless abortions while praising those who perform the procedure,“We want to show there are people of faith who support bodily rights” said Elaina Ramsey, executive director of the organization. The group also plans to conduct these ceremonies at the six other abortion clinics in Ohio over the next year, according to The Columbus Dispatch.”

Woman starts speaking at 3:15 mark.

Sunday Devotional: The Son of Man

Daniel 7:13-14

As the visions during the night continued, I saw
one like a Son of man coming,
on the clouds of heaven;
when he reached the Ancient One
and was presented before him,
the one like a Son of man received dominion, glory, and kingship;
all peoples, nations, and languages serve him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion
that shall not be taken away,
his kingship shall not be destroyed.

I once took a graduate course in modern Christology from an esteemed theological school.

One thing that baffled me was why Jesus referred to Himself as the “Son of man” instead of who He is, the Son of God. In fact, Jesus referred to Himself as the “Son of man” some 84 times in the New Testament. An example is Matthew 9:6:

But that ye may know that
the Son of man
hath power on earth to forgive sins

So I asked the professor, a scholar and Catholic priest, who, uncharacteristically, said he didn’t know.

But the answer is in the passage above from the Book of Daniel, chapter 7.

Jesus referred to Himself as the “Son of man” to indicate that He is precisely the eschatological figure that the Old Testament had prophesied to come at the end of time, who has “everlasting” “dominion” and “kingship” over “all peoples, nations and languages”.

John 18:36-37

Jesus answered, “My kingdom does not belong to this world.
If my kingdom did belong to this world,
my attendants would be fighting
to keep me from being handed over to the Jews.
But as it is, my kingdom is not here.”
So Pilate said to him, “Then you are a king?”
Jesus answered, “You say I am a king.
For this I was born and for this I came into the world,
to testify to the truth.
Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.”

Daniel 7 is but one instance in the Old Testament‘s foretelling of the incarnation, persecution, mocking, and death-by-crucifixion of Jesus, the Son of God. Other instances include Wisdom 2:12, 17-20; Isaiah 7:14; Numbers 27:14; Micah 5:2; Jeremiah 23:5; Zechariah 11:12; and Psalm 22:1, 16, 18.

As St. John wrote in Revelation 1:5-8:

Jesus Christ is the faithful witness,
the firstborn of the dead and ruler of the kings of the earth.
To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,
who has made us into a kingdom, priests for his God and Father,
to him be glory and power forever and ever. Amen.
Behold, he is coming amid the clouds,
and every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him.
All the peoples of the earth will lament him.
Yes. Amen.

“I am the Alpha and the Omega, ” says the Lord God,
“the one who is and who was and who is to come, the almighty.”

But the learned Hebrew scribes and rabbis simply refused to acknowledge that Jesus is the “Son of man” whom their Torah (Old Testament) amply foretold. Not only did they reject Jesus as the Christ, they drove Him out of town, tried to throw Him off a cliff (Luke 4:29), and eventually used proxies to kill Him, who committed no crime, by the most tortuous and cruelest form of execution that the Romans reserved for the worst criminals.

If that isn’t an overreaction on a demonic scale, I don’t know what is.

Note: In psychology, overreaction is defined as a response that is more strongly, over emotional, violent and exaggerated than is necessary or appropriate. Being exaggerated and off-the-scale, overreaction is an irrational response to a stimulus, which points to some underlying dynamics within the individual’s psychology.

No wonder He called them the spawn of Satan.

Jesus, I love You with my whole heart, my whole soul, my whole mind, and with all my strength.

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Witch population doubles as millennials cast off Christianity

Satanists at Trump inauguration protest, DC

From NY Post: If you were interested in witchcraft in 1692, you probably would have been jailed or burned at the stake. If you’re interested in witchcraft in 2018, you are probably an Instagram influencer.

From crystal subscription boxes to astrologist-created lip balm, the metaphysical has gone mainstream. Millennials today know more about chakras than your kooky New Age aunt. That’s why it’s no surprise that the generation that is blamed for killing everything is actually bringing popularity to centuries-old practices.

According to the Pew Research Center, about 1.5 million Americans identify as Wiccan or pagan. A decade ago, that number was closer to 700,000. Presbyterians, by comparison, have about 1.4 million votaries.

So why has witch popularity doubled? Perhaps it’s because millennials were raised on Harry Potter? Or maybe it’s because of the rise in popularity of yoga and meditation, researchers suggest.

Regardless, millennials have embraced astrology and the supernatural, even if they aren’t quite sure why. In fact, Stella Bugbee, editor-in-chief and president of the Cut, told the Atlantic that their horoscope content traffic increased 150 percent from 2016 to 2017.

In the same article, Lucie Greene, worldwide director of J. Walter Thompson’s innovation group, which looks at cultural trends, said that over the past few years, New Age practices have “very much geared toward a millennial and young Gen X quotient.”

It’s important to note, however, that while most Wiccans are pagans, all pagans are not necessarily Wiccans. All “witches” also aren’t necessarily “Wiccan.” Confused? Us too.

“Pagan” is an umbrella term that includes a number of different spiritual beliefs, often lumped in with “primitive beliefs,” which was used to describe people from rural areas who had not adopted Christianity. “Wicca” is a religion that “affirms the existence of supernatural power,” according to Merriam-Webster. The term “Wiccan” didn’t enter the mainstream until the late 1950s.

Meanwhile, social media has made it easy for witches of all kinds to bring their practices out into the light, because let’s face it, shiny things like crystals make prime social content.

Influencers like Hoodwitch bring “everyday magic for the modern mystic” to your Instagram feed daily. Moreover, there are more than 2 million posts on the app with the hashtag #witchesofinstagram. Still, it’s not just millennials embracing technology to spread the sorcery. Laurie Cabot, the “Original Witch of Salem,” shares daily spells and insight on Twitter. Cabot was bestowed that title by the then-governor of Massachusetts, Michael Dukakis, in 1977.

Now, it’s not clear if today’s witches are actually practicing spells (they are, see below) and attending new moon meditations or if they’re just capitalist crones scooping up all the witch kitsch. Regardless, it all looks good on Instagram, and when it comes to millennials, that’s the whole point.
