NEW AFTER SCHOOL SATAN "CLUBS": I have been carefully walking around this topic because, as a Christian, I don't want to accuse someone of being a Satanist who isn't, or who at least doesn't understand what that is; we have been seeing demonic references in films a lot lately, from conservative films accusing liberals of being Satanists, to liberals actually saying, we need to embrace Satan to overthrow conservatives and Christians. Now, it appears, Satan is actually planning on publicly appearing in US schools: although a network of public, elementary schools is being established, Los Angeles is the first on the list; while members of The Satanic Temple are saying they don't want to teach kids to worship Satan, teaching kids not to do God's will, but their own will instead, is an act of worshiping Satan..
According to this article, The Satanic Temple is coming to public schools beginning this year.. The Satanic Temple, which claims they are not Satanists--they will tell you they don't even believe Satan exists--but who, according to this article, are starting the "club" because they want kids to understand they have a choice, Jesus or Satan. REMEMBER, the devil's greatest trick was getting people to believe he doesn't exist. Okay, so, as Christians, how do we respond to the accusation that only teaching our children about Jesus isn't a "legitimate" choice (since we do believe in free will)? Because we are free to do what is right and good, we are not enslaved to our sins and appetites, we are free to fulfill our destiny for ourselves, families and communities, even the whole world. On the other hand, the ONLY OTHER CHOICE is to give into weakness: addiction, gambling, sex, drugs, alcohol, gluttony, any excess, can and does control our decision making process so we lose our freedom to do good and chose the false god of our addiction instead; look at the pictures of opium dens and tell me those are people who are free and living life to the fullest, for themselves or someone else (other than the den owner).

|What does this logo communicate? First, please notice the left hand; it's not the right hand, but the left hand, is held in a gesture of blessing. Traditionally, it's with the right hand that people are blessed because it is from the right that good things come, and from the left that bad things come; for example, please scroll down and look at the very last image of this post, Icon of the Resurrection. Christ uses His right hand to bless the viewer, and Satan uses his left. For not believing in Satan, The Satanic Temple knows how to communicate Satan's anti-Christ gestures. Notice that in his right hand, Satan holds, what is supposed to be, a priest's crosier for he is a shepherd like Christ. Priests hold it straight up in a sign of leadership and readiness to retrieve wandering sheep; Satan holds it down and in his right hand because he wants to steal the sheep of God away from the flock and lead them astray. Please note the horns of Satan: why? Satan has traditionally been depicted as goat because of the Greek god Pan of sex (especially orgies) and drunkenness. The horns indicate that Satan invokes his ancient identity of Pan and continues leading people into those same vices today. The monocle covering Satan's right hand shows that he is half blind and wants his followers to be so, too: Satan doesn't want you to know what he's going to lead you to do, and what sins you have to commit for him, or how difficult it will be to free yourself when you finally do realize how wrong you have been in following him. Please note also the multitude of teeth: teeth, as we know, symbolize the appetites, so all these teeth showing indicates that Satan is familiar with all the perverse appetites of human history, but also that he wants to communicate to his followers how many different appetites they can have. Why does Satan wear a Victorian suit? Because the Victorians were, notoriously, the stuffiest of all people in history, the suit is supposed to make him look distinguished, but also to implicate those people who abhor Satan as being "Victorians" and old-fashioned, exactly what liberals want us to be labeled as. Please note the use of the Pentagram in the lower, left hand corner: the five-tipped star is both an affront to Jews, the chosen people of God (Star Of David with six points) and an up-rooting attempt at the Star Of Bethlehem which signified the Birth of Jesus. Where the Wise Men followed the Star to Jesus, fools follow the Pentagram to Satan.|
|Would you leave your kid with this guy for five minutes? Would YOU want to be alone with this guy for five minutes? Remember, Satan is the father of lies, so his followers lie, too. If they REALLY didn't believe that Satan exists, why have they so successfully encoded the logo with so much Satanic imagery? I don't believe in aliens, for example, so, this being a blog dedicated to Christians, why on earth would I have a bunch of alien symbols all over it if I claimed I didn't believe in them, and wasn't wanting to spread belief in them? The truth is, they are followers of Satan and they want to get as many souls as they can; they can lie all they want, that is how they honor their damned father, following in his footsteps to hell. It was originally the film Independence Day: Resurgence and the symbol used in that film, which made me start wondering if liberals were really going to start calling on Satan to help them defeat conservatives and Christians (please see A Controlled Dive: Independence Day for more) not to mention the horrible ending of the liberal film The Witch when Thomasin gives her soul to the devil so she won't be "without a community"; while several conservative films, such as Warcraft, Sherlock Holmes (Guy Ritchie, 2009 when all the leaders of government were Satanists), the recent Godzilla (the song Devil In Disguise), the TV mini-series The Bible, the new Ghostbusters and The Conjuring 2 have all accused and indicated the liberals have all ready been inciting the devil in acting against conservative social views and traditions. It's possible, but not certain, that the soon-to-be-released Ben-Hur remake will take a call to embrace Satan as Judas did, and wrap up a Satanic, liberal message in this traditionally religious film.|
