"Narnia," and "Dawn Treader" Are Leading Children and Adults into Witchcraft and Satanism...
"My children, you will make a concerted effort to take and purge from your schools the practice of the occult. Already, many of your children have entered into these secret societies without your knowledge, and they are propagating it throughout your country and the countries of the world."- Our Lady of the Roses, October 1, 1977
The story of a witch named Starhawk: "How Narnia Made Me a Witch"
C.S. Lewis's books helped bring me to the Goddess. For me, one of her names is Aslan.
When I was eight years old, the librarian at my elementary school handed me "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe." The book took me into a magic world, where animals talked and nature was shimmering with enchantment. I devoured the book and avidly read the rest of the series, over and over again. Narnia was my comfort when I was sick and my escape when life was boring and dreary.
The books made me aware that something was lacking in my daily routine of school and Hebrew school, of TV cartoons on Saturday mornings and games of handball in the apartment garage. I longed to step into another world, one that would be wilder, more fluid, and more infused with wonder than the decidedly unmagical San Fernando valley where I lived.
That longing began my own spiritual search. I had a strong Jewish upbringing, and many years of Jewish education. I read Bible stories in the original Hebrew, and learned the wisdom of my ancestors encoded in the Talmud. But there was a different kind of Mystery I sensed in the Narnia books, something that was less about study and prayer and more entwined with nature and wildness, freedom and courage.
I know "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" is seen as a Christian story, and certainly C.S. Lewis meant it that way. Sometime in my ninth or 10th reading of the book, I suddenly caught the echoes of Jesus’ story in Aslan’s sacrifice. Being Jewish, I was probably slow to grasp this, as the whole story of the crucifixion was alien territory to me. I was dismayed, and immediately felt guilty. Would Narnia have to go into the category of attractive but forbidden Christian things, like the beautiful carols I didn’t sing at school, or the Christmas trees I secretly desired? My mother would never have forbidden me to read the books any more than she would have stopped me from helping a friend to decorate a Christmas tree. It was my own sense of exclusion—that if the essence of this secret world was Christian, it could no longer be my secret world.
No, I swiftly decided; the Christian imagery was only one part of the book, after all, and subtle enough that possibly no one but I had made the connection. I could ignore it and continue loving the books and slipping between their covers into Narnia.
Grasping the book’s underlying symbolism didn’t make me a Christian. Perhaps it made me a writer: It was my first realization of the multiple layers of meaning that literature can convey. And "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" conveys more than Lewis may have intended.
Editor's comment: Starhawk is still a witch who travels and writes books promoting witchcraft. Please pray for her conversion and that she will tell of the evils of C.S. Lewis' and J.R.R. Tolkien's books and movies.
Narnia and Lord of the Rings are recommended reading on witchcraft web sites.
The Holy Bible
The Book of Deuteronomy 18:9-12
When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God shall give thee, beware lest thou have a mind to imitate the abominations of those nations.
Neither let there be found among you any one that shall expiate his son or daughter, making them to pass through the fire: or that consulteth soothsayers, or observeth dreams and omens, neither let there be any wizard,
Nor charmer, nor any one that consulteth pythonic spirits, or fortune tellers, or that seeketh the truth from the dead.
For the Lord abhorreth all these things, and for these abominations he will destroy them at thy coming.
The Book of Wisdom 4:12
"For the bewitching of vanity obscureth good things, and the wandering of concupiscence overturneth the innocent mind."
Background of C. S. Lewis...
Lewis' so-called conversion is described by one of his friends in Light on C. S. Lewis as having come about by thinking. On page 62 of that book it says, "It did not come by sudden intuition, or overwhelming vision, or even by the more usual path of conviction of sin calling for repentance and atonement. It came by taking thought and it added many cubits to his stature." It is not possible to be saved without recognizing the need to repent from sin, thus it is hardly surprising that Lewis' life showed no fruit unto righteousness.
In short, his "conversion" to Christianity was financially and socially good for him. These may be the only "reasons" for it, but we will learn more about what he actually believed concerning his conversion and salvation in general later in this article.
He was allegedly a bachelor for most of his life, but married Joy Davidman Gresham at age 58. She was supposedly converted partly due to Lewis' books. After meeting him in England, she returned to the U.S. where she was divorced from her husband. According to two of his friends, Gresham's husband divorced her on the grounds of desertion. She returned to England and made herself available to Lewis, who married her shortly thereafter.
C. S. Lewis' most famous books are perhaps the Chronicles of Narnia, his occult, fantasy books for children. In them he went to great lengths to glorify and promote many occult ideas. While some maintain that the spiritual idea behind the fantasy is the truth of scripture, the cold hard facts point in the completely opposite direction. He was introducing children to witchcraft through esoteric (hidden meanings) writings. Let's take a closer look.
First of all, it is necessary to get some background in order to see where C. S. Lewis was headed with his "fantasy" stories. Lewis was good friends with Charles Williams and J.R.R. Tolkien (author of the occultic Lord of the Rings Trilogy). All three were part of a group of writers called the "Inklings." Of this group, one friend felt that Williams, and maybe Tolkien, were the two that influenced Lewis' thinking the most. Williams, a professing Christian, was especially close to him and taught Lewis the "white witchcraft" delusion of being able to take someone's pain for them and suffer it in one's own body. They cast this "talent" in a Christian light, and Lewis later claimed to have this ability and to have used it on behalf of his wife.
As we look into these things we begin to understand why C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia are recommended by the makers of Dungeon's & Dragons and are (were) sold in occult bookstores. His imagery is designed to fool the Christian reader while at the same time "enlightening" those initiated in the occult, witchcraft and Luciferianism. Since Satan's religions are counterfeits of God's truth, it was, to some extent "easy" for Lewis to pull this off.
C.S. Lewis on the other hand, who wrote the books of Narnia, another fantasy world, used a Lion God (also a symbol for the "God" of the Illuminati - Satan/Lucifer). This Lion God he called Aslan, compared to the Brotherhood's "Asalam"
"There is a group in the United States and the world, a group that started many years ago, calling itself the Illuminati, coming from the word 'light bearer.' Naturally, My children, this light that they bear stands for Lucifer, and as such they have gone through the world secretly known as Luciferians. They have brought into your country, the United States, and your neighbor Canada, a group of witchcraft practices.
"Well have they laid their plan to destroy your children with drugs, using your school systems, your medias of communication, your newspapers, your televisions, your radios: every means of communication has been infiltrated by the members and submembers of the illuminati, a conglomeration of individuals and powers and principalities throughout the world, and banking systems.
"As you well know, My children, money has always been the root of all evil, and many have sold their souls to get to the head." - Our Lady, November 25, 1978

Tolkien, the Bible and the Illuminati
Similar to many occult Masters, Tolkien got the idea to his masterpiece after he had been wounded in the first World War. He didn't know from where he got the idea, it just "came to him" (discussed in the Swedish book "Sagan om Tolkien", by Åke Ohlmarks, Norstedts 1971). Many occultists have had the same experience - some strange power(s) just channeling through them. Also, Tolkien was a professor in Oxford, which is controlled by the Illuminati. Question: was Tolkien a part of the Brotherhood to some degree? Did he know the occult technology, or is everything just a coincidence? He himself said he used parts of the Beowulf saga and the old Icelandic myths to create his own epos, but that doesn't explain everything. Hopefully we will understand this better as we continue the discussion in this essay.
Was Tolkien an occult or a Christian writer?
"Sadly, many professing Christians via the lie that anything done by a 'Christian' is acceptable, have accepted the occult. Tolkien was defined to be a Christian. Satan then got acceptance for his evil occult series of Lord of the Rings by gullible people that believe anything done by a 'Christian' is acceptable..."
"...Satan has used Tolkien and his occult series in very successful attacks against both the lost and professing Christians. The devil succeeded in getting the occult accepted by both groups, the lost and professing Christians and Tolkiens [sic] demonic works played a major role in the process.
Tolkiens [sic] occult stories were first published in the 1950's. It is interesting to note that Tolkien took 12 years to write his occult stories and he released them in the 13th year. He was a true occultist and the devil was pleased and blessed his work!"
"John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892-1973) was a man of many contradictions. For example:
Back in 1969, he wrote a letter affirming that "the chief purpose of life, for any one of us, is to increase according to our capacity our knowledge of God by all the means we have, and to be moved by it to praise and thanks." Yet the primary focus of his life was his mythical Middle-earth, headed by a distant and impersonal "God" who might confuse rather than clarify the nature of the Biblical God.
In his personal letters (many are included in a book titled The Letters of J. R. R Tolkien), he expressed caution toward occult practices. But he equipped his team of mythical heroes -- the fellowship of the Ring -- with the pagan powers that God forbids. For example, "Gandalf [a helpful wizard] is able to wield potent magic... To do battle with the forces of darkness, Gandalf the Grey can call upon not only his spellcraft, but also his staff of power and the Elven sword Glamdring."
He affirmed his faith in the One God who created the universe. But his mythical God stopped creating before the work was finished, then turned the rest over to a group of lesser gods or "sub-creators." In other words, Tolkien invented a hierarchy of deities that defied the Biblical God's wise warnings concerning both real and imagined idolatry."
Personally, no matter what Tolkien's intentions were, I believe that the effect his epos created was an increased interest in the occult. I can speak from my own experience; after had read his books, I wanted to know more about magic and sorcery, and directly or indirectly, his work eventually led me to one of the occult secret societies, where I became a member. However, I finally realized how I was used there for evil purposes, and left.
Today we have Dan Brown and "The Da Vinci Code", which also has helped to increase the interest in the occult. Brown says he is neutral regarding whether the secret societies are benevolent or malign, but his books present them as mysterious, and working for humanity.
"Magic and ingenuity made two series top sellers for both adults and children [my emphasis]. After five books and three movies, interest in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books are still strong. Now a boxed set collects the first five books of the adventures of the boy in wizard school..."
Tolkien's books have had a great influence on people and they paved the road for other forms of occultism. Games like Dungeons and Dragons were heavily influenced by Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings". In addition, his books influenced a numerous of other authors to write similar stories, which boosted an interest in the occult and magic.
There is nothing esoteric about it; actually this is a typical phenomenon. The same thing happens in the occult music industry. The book- and music industries decide the future trend and start promoting it on a big scale, and they know exactly how to get people interested; how to do that is already thoroughly researched by them. As with everything else in big business, politics and banking, the trends are always set in the direction of creating a New World Order, whether the artist, writer, or common man is aware of it or not. Those two media - books and movies - are excellent tools for the Illuminati, because their message reaches millions of people at once. Therefore, the fantasy genre is an introduction to the acceptance of the occult, which has to be looked at in a broader perspective, as we rapidly are heading towards a global, occult Super state. The occult rock group, Led Zeppelin, also used Tolkien's fantasy world in a few of their songs; the best known are probably "Ramble on" "The Battle of Evermore".
Now, was Tolkien a Christian or an occult writer?
"Decades ago, when witchcraft and wizardry were hidden from public view, young "Middle-earth" visionaries had no real-life place to test the new suggestions. That has changed. Through books, local covens, the Internet and other available sources, seekers can easily find tutors and practices that turn wizardly fantasy into practical occult reality. This sobering fact makes our world today radically different from the times when Tolkien and his friends shared their stories with each other.
Tolkien himself denies any supposed allegorical link between his myth and Biblical truth, it's not fair to hold his stories accountable to that truth. Nor is it wise to continue claiming that they teach us God's truth. Those who do could easily be tempted to lower their guard, set aside discernment, internalize the fascinating suggestions and be drawn to occult images.
Occult Symbolism in the Lord of the Rings
One thing is certain; J.R.R. Tolkien was very fascinated by occult symbolism. His epos has an abundance of it. Let us pick a few examplesof Masonic Symbology that correlate well with Tolkien's own: The most striking (so far) is this one: "It is a certificate of membership in 'The Societas Rosicruciana' in Anglia founded in 1886 by a group of Freemasons." This is the 'Rosicrucian Society in England'. 'The Rungs of the Ladder' (1999) by Michael J. Stayt emphatically notes that this is not a Masonic order, but a Society of Freemasons. Here is an image of the certificate on the left, and a detail on the right. Greg has highlighted the fiery Crown and seven stars symbolism in color:
Regarding the nature of the Masonic Rosicrucian Society, Michael Stayt goes on to write:
"The qualification for membership is to be a Master Mason and a Christian. Perhaps even more important is the need to be interested in the deeper subjects surrounding Freemasonry and a willingness to study them. The Society was formed in 1865...Each of the First Order ceremonies covers a specific aspect of esoteric study and marks a specific stage in the personal development of the Frater (Brother) involved... The Society encourages study of all arcane and esoteric subjects, but from a theoretical rather than a practical standpoint. Time is devoted to the presentation of papers and members are exhorted to write and present papers. These may be on any non-Masonic subject, but examples might include:...astrology, astronomy, alchemy, theosophy...and especially the Kabbalah."
CONSPIRACY OF EVIL
"There is now a conspiracy of evil in your country, the United States. Recognize the meaning of Illuminati. It has been now interwoven with the churches of satan and the massive international organization of Wicca. They are now fighting My Son's Church. It is satan who guides them, for these people who have entered into the organization of Wicca and Illuminati, they are dead bodies and dead souls!
"You ask, My children, how this can be? Much that will take place now in the near future you will see and be astounded at. Remember, My children, that Lucifer has great power. However, his time is growing short, and realizing this he has accelerated his evil." - Our Lady of the Roses, December 7, 1977
Which is very interesting because there is an almost Gnostic flavor to this Christian Masonic area of study. It feels a lot like my Dark Star theory itself, in fact, where an unusual set of symbols can be found across a wide variety of religious, esoteric and mythological disciplines, requiring a wide net to be thrown. In the Rosicrucian certificate above, the Nibiruan [sic] symbols are elevated above the Sun, above the Zodiac and even above the Cross itself (much like the Talisman of Orpheus). It implies an extra-solar presence. They are also identical to Tolkien's symbolism.
This is a remarkable find, and I'm very grateful to Greg Jenner for passing this along."
Thus ends Mr. Andy Lloyd's comments.
I am constantly getting information from readers, and as I go along I will post what is relevant and interesting in this regard. This morning, on January 2, 2005, I got an email from a person who is an initiate in the A.'. A.'., which is a group of people who study Aleister Crowley's Magick and practice it, without being a member of a specific secret society. He told me that Tolkien indeed was an initiate for some time, but was excluded because of "incompetence" (in studying and practicing Magick?). This particular Crowley adept gave me the following comparison between some of the characters in the "Lord of the Rings" and the world today:
Frodo = aspirant
Gandalf = The Secret Chief of the A.'. A.'. (Aleister Crowley)
Saruman = Golden Dawn adept (Mathers, who was the Grand Master of the Order while Crowley was alive.)
Sauron = Choronzon
Aragorn = Spirit
Arwen = Body
The Ring = Magick powers
Volcano = Abyss
The Ring Wraiths = Initiate in the Black Brotherhood (The Illuminati)
In this aspect it is interesting to note that Frodo, the aspirant, after had completed his work, was fully accepted by the Brotherhood, was initiated and allowed to leave his old "ordinary, ignorant human [hobbit] life" and join the Illuminated Ones. This was symbolically done when Frodo left Middle-Earth together with Gandalf and the Elves at the end of "The Return of the King". Bilbo also left (was accepted into the Order) after he had shown that he could overcome his ego and be in control over the temptation from the "One Ring of Power". His final battle with the temptation from the Ring was in Rivendell, just before Frodo decided to go alone to Mordor. At that point Bilbo passed the requirements and were initiated into the Higher Order; became Illuminated.
Also, the comparison with Gandalf and Saruman is interesting, too. Aleister Crowley [1875-1947] and S.L. MacGregor Mathers [1854-1918] were friends at first, but became arch enemies eventually, when Crowley left the Golden Dawn and became the head of the OTO. Mathers never forgave him for bringing some of the "secret" knowledge out in the open, and the two magicians started a magic(k)al battle, which Crowley (Gandalf) won, and Mathers (Saruman) ended up as a broken man and eventually caved in mentally and physically, and died.
To me, contrary to the information I was given above, Aragorn is BODY and Arwen is SPIRIT. Arwen was half Elf and half human, which means she is "enlightened" and one of the "Old Race" (compared to the root races in Theosophy). When Aragorn became KING he symbolized the end of the Third Age (the "Old Order") and now became the first KING of the Fourth Age ("The New World Order"), the King of Man. By marrying Arwen he became "fulfilled". He was of the Illuminated Royal Bloodline, in direct line from Isildur (king Salomon). Arwen (Spirit) to me symbolizes the full circle, when the blue-blooded king of the Illuminati bloodline sits on the throne to rule over mankind, possessing secret knowledge through Arwen (Spirit).
The following is taken from Eric Barger's Take a Stand Ministries: http://www.ericbarger.com/lotr.c.c.2.htm
SIX MAJOR PROBLEMS WITH THE FANTASY OF J.R.R, TOLKIEN and C.S. LEWIS
1) The Identity of God - Tolkien wrote in a letter that the chief purpose of life is “to increase our knowledge of God,” but the idea of God contained in his writing is very different from the Biblical revelation of God. Dr. Ralph C. Wood, an expert on Tolkien's work, described Tolkien’s concept of God as “a remote supreme being who rules the universe through ‘lesser gods’ or ruling spirits, an idea much closer to Norse and Celtic mythology than the caring personal God of the Bible.” This concept is indeed evident in his stories.
Interesting as well is the fact that Tolkien was fluent in several languages including Latin, medieval Welsh, Anglo-Saxon, and Gothic, a form of ancient German. I don’t want to make too much of this, but could it be that in his obviously fertile mind, Tolkien simply mixed his study of the Dark Ages with the story of Christ where he produced a wizard hero with moral absolutes? Dr. Ralph Wood, the award-winning professor from Baylor and Wake Forest Universities and renowned expert on Tolkien agrees, stating: “Tolkien was caught on the cusp that joins two worlds: the traditional Christian world of angels and demons and dream-visions wherein the natural and the supernatural were inextricably interwoven, and the modern world where space and time have been radically relativized by scientific discovery, psychological exploration, and imaginative invention.”
He also invented several new languages, one of which he deemed “Elvish.” He was quoted as saying that the entire Rings came to him as a result of the new language he had created. Today there exists a society called the “The Elvish Linguistic Fellowship” dedicated to “the scholarly study of the invented languages of J.R.R. Tolkien.” One has to wonder if the same spiritual forces that skewed his view of God may also have filled his new-fangled vocabulary as well?
While Tolkien exhibited some strange and cultic ideas about who God is, Lewis affirmed the idea of Godhood for man (misquoting Psalm 82) in not one but two of his books: Beyond Personality (London: The Centenary Press, 1945), p.48 and Mere Christianity (New York: Macmillan Company, 1952), p.174-175. Though I didn’t find information that indicated that he was endeared to any other Mormon doctrine, I was particularly sensitive to his statements on this.
2) The Finished Creative Work of God – Tolkien affirmed his faith in the One God who created the universe. But his mythical God stopped creating before the work was finished, and then turned the rest over to a group of lesser gods or "sub-creators." In other words, Tolkien invented a hierarchy of deities that defied the Biblical God's wise warnings concerning both real and imagined idolatry. - (The Letters of J. R. R Tolkien, Humphrey Carpenter, editor (Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1981), page 284)
3) Tolkien taught reincarnation – Besides his extensive use of unbiblical themes such as elves, gnomes, dwarves and wizards and other creatures empowered with magical skills, he gave his elves the certainty of unconditional eternal life teaching overt reincarnation. Humans, on the other hand, are not afforded such in Tolkien’s fantasy. Their lives -- with rare exceptions -- must end with their physical death.
In "The Fellowship of the Rings" Gandalf falls into the depths of Moria and dies, just to reincarnate later, much wiser, from Gandalf the Grey to Gandalf the White. Here is Tolkien:
"Gandalf is not, of course, a human being (Man or Hobbit). There are naturally no precise modern terms to say what he was. I would venture to say that he was an incarnate 'angel'...
And now this:
"This incarnate "angel" wouldn't fit into the host of Biblical angels. But he could well fit in the hierarchy of "devas" or "angels" and ascended masters in the elaborate spiritual system called Theosophy or "Ancient Wisdom." Popularized by Madame Helena Blavatsky, this esoteric blend of Hinduism and Western occultism received its doctrines from "ascended masters" or spirit guides such as Djhwal Khul who channeled his messages to the medium Alice Bailey."
Instead of the Christian's hope of eternal life, Tolkien's world offers reincarnation -- but only for a select group. This popular notion defies the Scriptures that tell us that "it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment..." (Heb 9:27)
Concerned about this contradiction, the manager of a bookstore asked Tolkien if he might have "over-stepped the mark in metaphysical matters." Tolkien wrote this response, ”‘Reincarnation' may be bad theology (that surely, rather than metaphysics) as applied to Humanity... But I do not see how even in the Primary world any theologian or philosopher, unless very much better informed about the relation of spirit and body than I believe anyone to be, could deny the possibility of reincarnation as a mode of existence, prescribed for certain kinds of rational incarnate creatures.” (The Letters of J. R. R Tolkien, page 189)
Tolkien also overstepped the biblical mark by building ancestor worship into the storyline – one of the pagan world’s most revered practices.
4) Both Tolkien and Lewis endorsed drinking alcohol and smoking and did so in their personal lives – This may seem trivial to some but it should be pointed out. Lewis wrote these themes in his children’s books and also included swearing in the stories as well. Tolkien’s Rings includes characters engaged in smoking.
5) Both J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were initiated in the H.O.G.D. (The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn), which is a deeply occult, black magic secret society. - A high initiated witch related that both Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were initiated in the H.O.G.D. (The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn), which is a deeply occult, black magic secret society. (The "Order of the Golden Dawn" was primarily made up of mystical "Christians" and former followers of Madame Blavatsky the founder of the Theosophical Society that still adhered to Luciferianism.) During a discussion about Tolkien and his work, this male witch commented that "The Hobbit" and the rest of the Middle-Earth series was merely an elementary 'primer' for witchcraft. He was even a bit irritated at the lack of background knowledge about Tolkien among the people gathered. Later he added C.S. Lewis to the conversation as another well known literary figure who was initiated in the H.O.G.D. If this is true or not is hard to say, but it is interesting and well worth looking further into. However, there are more indications that both Tolkien and Lewis had Golden Dawn connections. Charles Williams was a friend of Lewis and Tolkien and also a member of the H.O.G.D. Williams along with Tolkien and Lewis, were members of a close knit Oxford reading group known as “The Inklings.” This is almost certainly where Lewis arrived at his extra-biblical ideas concerning the Holy Grail and other mid-evil myths.
6) Occult Desensitization – If it happened to Tolkien and Lewis then it could happen to us. I have pointed out consistently for several years that the Harry Potter books were conditioning unsuspecting minds worldwide to accept the occult as normal. It isn’t that every reader of the Potter or Rings series is going to somehow automatically become a witch or sorcerer. The concern is that many will be endeared to these satanic ideas because of the psychological alliances they have made with the characters they’ve read about and cheered for through the pages of the books or on the silver screen.
If the mind lives for any substantial amount of time in the fantasy realm of the occult, sorcery and witchcraft, there is certainly a possibility that when facing the same occultism in real life that our human response will not be one that immediately opposes it. It is obvious that rather than rejecting the occult, what is happening is that entire generations are increasingly reacting in a positive fashion to its practices and practitioners. Smaller, yet more tragic are the numbers from this group who are not just favorably reading about Satan’s playground of sorcery and spells but are instead desirous to actually participate in it! Our response as Christians is to understand that the occult – the same practices promoted by Tolkien’s heroes – is repulsive in the site of God. He condemns such in no uncertain terms with the use of the word “abomination” three times in Deuteronomy 18:9-12. The Hebrew word here is the strongest condemnatory language used in the entire Bible on any issue! Dare we react in any other way? We had better call evil “evil” and never confuse it for “good.”
TWO POINTS IN SUMMARY
- First, though Lewis and Tolkien may have been Christians and though their works may be endorsed by many fine evangelicals, this does NOT necessarily place God’s stamp of approval on ALL they may have written. These men may have written some good works in the minds of some, but the use of “white vs. black magick” imagery in their fantasies is totally out of sync with Biblical truth.
- Second, as I close, I want to reiterate a previous point that in the day when these two men were composing their fantasies, witchcraft and the occult had not risen to such a prominent place of respectability that it has today. Again, this in no way excuses Lewis or Tolkien but does explain why their stories may have gone for so long without much consternation in Christian circles. Now we know better. Remember also that in the 1940s relative standards of morals had not become the norm for the culture. It is indeed a different day today. Because of that, we must react differently to fiction which offers the answer to overcome one evil (“black” magick) with merely a different dose of the same poison (“white” magick). Both are just as deadly and will surely take their toll unless recognized for the satanic tool which they are.
Though the Scripture tells us, “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. From all appearance of evil refrain yourselves.” (I Thessalonians 5:21-22), we should rightfully be troubled by the lack of biblical thinking reflected in the worldview of many in the church today. Many Christians seem resolved to allow their feelings, culture and emotions to rule the entertainment choices that they make. The result is that some have allowed God’s scriptural principles to take a back seat when making critical decisions about what to allow into their hearts and minds. As I have ministered on these issues over the last two decades, I have often wondered what part of this passage from I Thessalonians it is that so many Christians seem not to understand? Where is the biblical worldview and spiritual discernment that scripture clearly demands from followers of Christ? Tragically, it may be nearly nonexistent, for George Barna has reported that only 9% of born-again adults actually hold a biblical worldview! This fact should shock us all.
Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter are not the real problem, but merely a symptom. It is the lack of critical biblically-based thinking that is the problem. My prayer is that in every choice you make you’ll allow the Scripture to solely and completely guide you. The only way this will be possible though is for each of us to feast on it daily, making it a lamp and light to guide our paths, that we might not transgress against the God of the universe. If we’ll follow this rule we’ll receive His richest and fullest blessings on our lives, families and homes.
These prophecies came from Jesus, Mary, and the saints to Veronica Lueken at Bayside, NY, from 1968 to 1995:
There is no such group as a good witch...
"They [children] must not join occult groupings. There is no such group as a good witch or a bad witch. My children, they all are under the rule of satan!" - Our Lady of the Roses, August 14, 1979
Sorcery and Mind - Control...
Our Lady - "My child and My children, the greatest anguish of heart that We suffer now is because of the sorcery that has come into the lives of many of your children. We call this sorcery, My children, because there has been a combination of the practice of the occult, witchcraft, with drugs. The minds of your children are being destroyed and distorted by the use of mind - controlling agents from hell. And I say from hell, My children, because it is a diabolical plan of satan to control the minds of your children.
"O parents, if I could only allow you to see into your near future - and I say near, because your near future is not counted by years but months now.
"You will find that sin is truly insanity. Children shall rise up against their parents and put them to death. Murder shall be rampant in your streets, My children. And why? Because you have now set up another god to worship, a god of materialism and atheism." (10-6-77)
No goodness in witchcraft...
Our Lady - "Now, My child, you will listen well and repeat.
"The practice of sorcery and witchcraft has become widespread in your country and many nations upon earth. There is no goodness in witchcraft, for it is directed by satan, the master of deceit.
"My children, there are only two forces now upon earth - good and evil, light and darkness. You are now being tested, and you must now make your choice. Which side shall you join - the road that leads to eternal damnation, the road of darkness of spirit, or will you walk the road to Heaven, the road filled with light?" (11-1-77)
Powers of witchcraft not to be tested...
Our Lady - "Your children are being debased and defiled through sorcery, drugs, and indoctrinated through your schools. The powers of witchcraft must not be tested, for forces are now loosed upon your earth. The supernatural must be recognized, for it is evident that too few are preparing themselves for these days you are living in." (11-1-77)
Witchcraft is diabolical...
Jesus - "He will promote in mankind a form of insanity, for sin is insanity. Man will descend to the level of the animal, degrading his body, committing murder, extermination of the elderly, extermination of the ill, destruction of the youth. Sorcery, drugs, witchcraft, My children. And don't laugh now: the snickers will be your downfall. Witchcraft is here now upon earth. It is no farce; it is no story; it is a fact. For it is diabolical and the coming force of demons." (2-10-78)
Purge from your schools the practice of the occult...
Our Lady - "My children, you will make a concerted effort to take and purge from your schools the practice of the occult.

Crucifix to guard entrances to home…
Jesus - "I must reveal, My children, to the world again, that you are to keep a crucifix on your front door and your back door. All entrances to your home must be guarded by the crucifix. There has not been one home on Long Island that had a crucifix on its door that did fall to any evil. I do not speak of the trees, My child; I speak of mankind. You did not know a major disaster as has happened, My children, in Mexico. You see, My child, I set you down in that area to bring the word to mankind, and it was through these words that many listened and the passed through the horrible experience of a hurricane." (10-5-85)

Jesus - "I bless you, My children, and I diffuse among you the graces for conversion and cure. Keep the sacramentals that have been given to you through the ages of your world's time. They have been given for reason. Do not cast them aside, for when you do thus you will cast aside your protection against satan and his agents who are loose now in full battle upon earth." (2-10-73)
Keep your sacramentals about your necks...
Our Lady - "Keep your sacramentals about your necks. I say about your necks, not for decoration, but because many shall flee with only what they have on their bodies! It is now a supernatural protection, My children, that you have: your medals, your scapulars, and even your Rosary, your beads of prayer about your neck, your children's necks and all those who wish to be saved.
"The monuments, the statues, must be kept in your homes. As it was in the days of old, the angel of death shall pass by those who retain the monuments in their homes." (5-18-77)
