The obsession with the Occult has sky rocketed in the last few years. You can’t watch TV without seeing an advertisement for a TV series or movie that portrays evil as exciting and glamorous.
2nd Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

As I wrote in an article some years ago on witchcraft, those who are witches are not like the wicked witch of the west depicted in the wizard of Oz. They are mostly like Glenda the good (?) witch of the east portrayed as beautiful and good. That portrayal has given rise to many TV shows and movies that have evolved into sexually seductive women and teens who are appearing as angels of light. “What one generation allows in moderation the next will practice in excess!” The prophet Isaiah said it well:
Isaiah 5:20-21 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Here is a news story I came across while doing morning news: Beautiful TV vampires leading more to occult
THE proliferation of “beautiful young vampires” in TV series and Hollywood films including True Blood and the Twilight movies is encouraging young people to dabble with occult forces, a leading authority on demonic possession has warned a Vatican-backed exorcism course.
“There are those who try to turn people into vampires and make them drink other people’s blood, or encourage them to have special sexual relations to obtain special powers,” said Professor Giuseppe Ferrari at the meeting in Rome, which heard that the number of such possessions is rising globally.
“These groups are attracted by the so-called beautiful young vampires that we’ve seen so much of in recent years.”
The above has a Catholic viewpoint and it is good for them to shed light on the problem. However, the Religion of Catholicism, and their philosophy, can’t come against Occult powers. These Occultists just sit back and laugh at the majority of those who try come against them in the flesh. There are also many well meaning protestants who are no match for the Occult either. Most are not saved and do not have the anointing of the Holy Spirit and only make matters worse.
Acts 19:13-17 Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of one Sceva, a Jew, and chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded. And this was known to all the Jews and Greeks also dwelling at Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.
Only a Born Again Believer, empowered by the Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus Christ, has the power of God and can eliminate these powers of darkness. In fact, they have already been defeated when Jesus died on the cross.
Colossians 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
Why is humanity so obsessed with evil?
Its because we are inherently evil due to the Sin nature that is in every human that was born, and will be born, since Adam and Eve rebelled against God in the garden of Eden. When they rebelled, Sin entered into every person and is handed down from generation to generation.
The lust of the flesh the lust of the eyes is what drives us and demonic forces take advantage of that Sin nature.
1st John 2:15-16 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world
The powers of darkness, the Occult has complete control of Hollywood. Going out on a limb here, I will say that 99.9% of the actors and actresses are under satans demonic control. A lot of them claim to be Christians and that is in question. If they are not totally possessed, they are so controlled and deceived, they cant discern what is going on around them. Sadly, that is the state of the majority of the Church!!
Satan is very cunning and knows what people want. These demonic programs feed the dark part of that Sin Nature and the sexual images are a big lure. What man (or lesbian) can’t resist the half naked, voluptuous woman who is all to eager to act out her evil nature? Perhaps a homosexual male, but then they are lusting after the equally seductive male actor, just as the heterosexual women are. Oh come on now ladies, you know your just as perverted as men are, lusting after the same things! Most of these programs openly show Bi-sexuality, Homosexuality and Lesbianism. This draws the eye in and then the demonic theme of the show is absorbed into the mind causing a drug like affect.
Here is an ad I came across on March 14, 2014
“Casting female lead for reality show for new docu-series. Must be edgy, engaging and have an interest in the occult I got this in an email alert on stories about the Occult. Seems they are going to put more demonic idiocy out there for the masses. This one will apparently focus on Vampires. I will not provide a link to the site doing the promoting but here is a screen shot of it.”
Vampire, Occult Entertainment Going Too Far? Christian Leaders Urge Action
By Eryn Sun, Christian Post Reporter October 11, 2014
Twilight fans may need to step back and reassess their love of vampires and werewolves, as a recent rise in occult activity throughout the world is alarming some Christian scholars.
More than just a flippant fascination, youth today have become fixated on popular entertainment subjects like vampires, ghosts and witches, taking their interests to the extreme, and acting out in accordance.
Just a few months ago, a 19-year-old in Texas, claiming to have been a 500-year-old vampire needing to be fed, broke into a woman’s home, threw her against the wall, and tried to suck her blood.
Another instance in Florida involved a teenage girl who was charged along with four others for beating a 16-year-old to death. They were part of a purported vampire cult, with one teenage girl calling herself a vampire/werewolf hybrid.
“Psychologists have long understood how women in general desire strength in men, but few could have imagined how this natural and overriding need by young ladies would be used in modern times to seduce them of their innocence using mysteriously strong yet everlastingly damned creatures depicted in popular books and films like Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse,” publisher Thomas Horn said in a statement.
“Consider as an example popular youth-oriented magazines like Rolling Stone and their article ‘The Joy of Vampire Sex.’ Look at the ménage-à-trois on the magazine’s cover of three nudes bathed in blood with the promise to readers that vampires are ‘Hot. They’re Sexy. They’re Undead.’”
“Listing all of the related fan sites, music videos, magazines, television shows and movies currently dedicated to sexual [or romantic] obsession with alluring demons-in-flesh would be daunting. But these would have to include television shows like ‘Being Human,’ ‘The Gates,’ ‘Underworld,’ ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘True Blood,’ not to mention the hedonistic gay-themed program ‘The Lair,’ a series that plays nationwide on all major cable systems based on a vampire-run sex club.”
Admonishing parents, pastors and youth pastors to pay closer attention to what their children were “mentally and spiritually feeding on,” Horn hopes that Christians would begin to act to counter the dangers of pop culture’s fascination on occult practices before a generation was “lost to darkness.”
“Frankly, preachers need to care enough about those families and youth within their care to take a stand, or stand down; be gusty enough to use their pulpit for something eternally useful, or quit the ministry and become a car salesman.”
Though the worry might be overlooked by many who felt Horn’s admonition was an over-assessment on pop culture, believing that the current trends would eventually fade and no longer be relevant, Horn said they could not be farther from the truth.
“As a doctor of theology with a past in exorcism, I couldn’t disagree more,” he told The Raiders News Network.
“Mass media including the Internet, television, film, radio and other communications systems have traded Bela-Lugosi-like vampires of former years and silly Abbott and Costello’s Frankenstein and Mummies, which could be vanquished with Christian symbols, for monsters of profound demonic character depicted as impervious to Christ’s power,” Horn said.
“As a result, today’s youth have exchanged yesterday’s pigtails and pop-guns for pentagrams and blood covenants aligned with forces far stronger than former generations could have imagined.”
With everything happening in culture today, Horn urged Christian leaders to use the month of October and the season of Halloween to address these issues, which he said are infecting everyone around the world, including those in the United States.
In the United States alone, there were more than 200,000 registered witches and as many as 8 million unregistered practitioners of “the craft,” according to multiple conservative scholars who documented a report on the rise of occult activity in a collaborative work entitled God’s Ghostbusters.
Well-known Christian leaders like Chuck Missler, Gary Stearman, Noah Hutchings, Gary Bates and John McTernan, who contributed to the work, also believe in the gravity of the situation, and have called on other leaders to make a change.
To help pastors, Christian education directors, Sunday school teachers and ministry leaders address such topics this Halloween, a 270-page teachers guide, as well as two books on the subject in pdf format, have been made available to download at no cost on the God’s Ghostbusters page.

As we draw closer to the second coming of Jesus Christ, we will see more and more of this type of evil programming portrayed as entertainment. All it is doing is indoctrinating unsuspecting viewers into satanism and witchcraft. And this includes church goers!!!
In the following posts we will take these TV shows and movies one by one and explain why you should avoid them, and keep your children from them.
1st Thessalonians 5:21-23 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
