How and why some people end up in the worst form of witchcraft
You're probably wondering that nobody in their right mind would end up in Satanism, the worst form of witchcraft. Why would someone end up worshiping Satan and pursuing to fulfill normal human desires in evil ways. You probably are saying only insane people can do that.
The answer is yes – only insane people can do that. The only problem is that this is not insanity of the mind. This is insanity of the conscience. Some may include the smartest of people in the world yet their conscience can be damaged from functioning normally. My book, Breaking Spiritual Strongholds and Healing the Wounded Spirit: Dealing with Root Causes , has more detailed info on this topic. Please see chapter 4, “Deception, the No. 1 Doorway for Spiritual Wounds.”
It does not just happen overnight that the conscience becomes dead or seared (burnt) as the bible puts it. It starts from ignoring the little things that trigger the conscience to ring a moral alarm on what's good and what's evil. Then a person grows to ignoring the moral alarm on bigger matters.
This is how Satan works in people. He comes to tempt them at their level. His ultimate goal is for them to grow from committing one level of sin to another. Behind each sin he puts a carrot or something desirable. And the best place to make people to graduate from one abomination to another is in the occult. Occult groups that are in Satanism start their recruits at low ranks. They even appear as good, community oriented, and people centered.
As a new recruit grows in fulfilling his newly found faith he/she realizes that he's way below in ranks compared to some. The ranks are very rewarding of all the human desires: power, wealth, status, influence, respect, protection, you name it. This is particularly so in Satanism occult groups. White witchcraft groups are child's play compared to groups in Satanism. Even black witchcraft groups in category one are child's play compared to groups in Satanism.
The new recruit in the occult realizes that at it each level you learn new secrets that help in fulfilling desired matters. The only thing he does not realize is that at each level he is slowly losing his conscience. He's so caught up with his self-centered pursuits that he ignores the inner promptings from the conscience. As my other book on Christian healing points out from the bible, a conscience is a moral compass God gave to all humanity. Thus all people, including unbelievers, have a conscience.
The bible says about unbelievers (Gentiles), “Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law, since they show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness , and their thoughts now accusing, now even defending them,” Romans 2:14-15 (emphasis added).
This sidelining of the conscience and justification for the desired matter happens even in normal life that has northing to do with being in the occult. Any of us who may have fallen to one sin or another did so by sidelining of the conscience and making the desired matter more important than obeying the conscience. In street language people say, “I couldn't resist the temptation.”
People in occult groups at the level of Satanism (sub-category two of black witchcraft) are tempted with many rewarding goodies as they move up the ladder. Their temptation by Satan can be compared to the temptation Jesus experienced in the wilderness. The only difference is that Jesus resisted Satan's temptation. In the third and final temptation the bible says:
“The devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. ‘All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me.'”
“Jesus said to him, ‘Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only,'” Matthew 4:8-11.
Satan seeks worship since he wants to be like God. In order to be able to receive this worship he promises people in the occult “kingdoms of the world and their splendor.” He promises goodies that appeal to our senses and desires. The goodies don't come cheap. In return he requires obedience to what he wants the people to do before being rewarded.
In other ways there is a sacrifice to Satan before receiving his rewards. This sacrifice people have to make is serving or worshiping him. People in occult groups at the level of Satanism (sub-category two of black witchcraft) are the most available and willing to follow all that is required before receiving rewards they want. We can see it from how much wealth, power, status and influence they command in this world. The earthly splendor people in Satanism have is far beyond all other occult groups (religious cults, white witchcraft, and sub-category one of black witchcraft).
A lot of insane and bizarre incidences that we only get to hear of in the media once the culprits get caught are part of Satanic rituals. These include general incest (sexual intercourse between family members), child-molestation incest (by a parent on his own juvenile child), general child-molestation, sodomy rituals, spousal swapping rituals, and so on.
Some marks that leave clues of occult connections are the people themselves. Culprits who seem to commit occult related rituals are people who lead normal lives socially and career wise- at least on the outward. I believe the massive child-molestation offenses that were revealed to have been going on in the Catholic Church were occult related rituals. People from satanic occult groups managed to infiltrate the Catholic Church where they had easier access to children who served as altar-boys.
Think about it: why would a priest who believes in God, fears God, knows what the Bible says about children, want to go out and fulfill his sexual urges on children, even children of his own sexual orientation? He's not broke to not afford to go to someplace in a disguised manner and find some willing grown-up prostitutes to fulfill his sexual desperations. Then if he got caught it would be a small news story about a celibate priest on heat. And the congregation would probably take him back.
Thus it's not that he was so desperate to fulfill his sexual urges but that he's from an occult group where sexual rituals on children is on its menu of rituals. He was not a Christian at any point he was claiming to be one while being a priest.
