Magic, idolatry, spiritual threats

Magic, idolatry, spiritual threats
  • Only God heals
  • In attempting to recover his health by opening up to spiritual powers of unknown origin, man exposes himself to great danger. For behind any miraculous occurrence which is not the work of God, a stratagem by the evil spirit lurks.

  • Healed by Jesus’ love
  • Every person’s deeply rooted desire to be happy is the area of particularly intensive temptation by Satan, the greatest enemy of human happiness.

  • You shall have no other gods
  • A dramatic battle for life and death is played out every day in the heart of each of us. The outcome ultimately depends only on our will: we will either strongly reject all sin and choose God, or we will remain in sin and be lost.

  • “You shall not tattoo any marks upon you: I am the Lord” (Lev 19:28)
  • If we read the Scriptures, sooner or later we notice a categorical ban on tattooing. What’s this all about? After all, everyone does it and “it is really nothing.” Why does God forbid us to do it?

  • Freemasons’ Strategy of Fighting Against God and Man
  • Only after his conversion did Maurice Caillet realize that one cannot be a Mason and a Catholic at the same time because the ideology of Freemasons is absolutely at odds with the teachings of Christ.

  • Deliver Us From the Evil One
  • In His work of creation, God called into existence pure spirits endowed with free will, intelligence, and power. As their Creator He desired that they enjoy a special relationship with Him and do His will—though not under compulsion but rather out of love. A number of these spirits refused obedience and opposed His will. Their rejection of God became their damnation; of their own free will they became not good spirits but spirits of evil and rebellion, despising God.

  • Roots of Unbelief and the Occult
  • The practice of the occult is one of the most serious sins against the First Commandment. What are the deeper roots of this expression of disbelief in God?

  • The Snare of Eastern Mysticism
  • These days we hear a lot about spirituality. The western fascination with eastern meditation exercises and disciplines, all aimed at developing spirituality, has come to our country with a vengeance. Propagators of oriental meditation techniques even try to persuade us that eastern mysticism embraces the same stages of spiritual growth as those identified by Christian mystics.

  • From Oriental Martial Arts to Demonic Bondage
  • I was raised in a Catholic family. The story of my estrangement from God began when I was finishing middle school. It was a time when martial arts films were fashionable in Poland. As a fifteen-year-old, I found them fascinating. Bruce Lee and other heroes filled my imagination.
     

  • Why Does Jehovah Keep Changing His Mind?
  • According to the teachings of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, only JWs have access to the Truth. Only they know what Jehovah thinks at any given moment and only they carry out His will—uncompromisingly and to the letter. If this were so, we would have to accept the fact that Jehovah was a capricious, inconsistent, and indecisive God. But the truth is that JWs are far from the truth and have not the faintest notion of the true nature of God whom we can know through the Bible and the teachings of the Church.

  • The Snare of the Occult
  • All those who practice any form of the occult do so in breach of the First Commandment. They break the bonds of life and love that unite them with God, and give themselves over to terrible enslavement by the powers of evil.

  • I Mistook Magic for Spirituality
  • I was born and raised in a Catholic family. I received the sacraments, attended Holy Mass regularly, and prayed every day. This was the case until 1993, when, at the age of sixteen, I happened to meet someone I became very fond of
