The Bible warns us to stay away from witchcraft, fortune tellers, and anything associated with such things, like ouija boards, tarot cards, and horoscopes. These are known as “occult” practices, and they are evil in the sight of God. For more, watch this short animated video for kids.
Where do demons come from? Satan as the first rebel against God not only affected the course of human history, but he changed the heavens as well. Satan drew many of the heavenly host to him and away from God with devastating results. Watch this short vlog then listen to the full podcast of the same name for much more.
For many centuries the churches have taught that when sinners die they face a punishment of eternal torment and torture in hell. Reading some of the descriptions of how this intense and endless torture works will make your skin crawl and your stomach turn. Yet, those who adhere to such teaching are firm in their belief that it is thoroughly biblical, and therefore entirely in line with God and His plan. But is it? What if this teaching is NOT of God but rather of Satan? Watch this short vlog then listen to the podcast of the same name for the scriptural proof and historical evidence behind our thoughts.

Good and Evil. Throughout history there has always been a battle between the two and for many who hold a religion as sacred, this battle has its leaders. As Christians, we embrace God Almighty as the unequivocal Creator and Leader of all that is good and righteous, and we see Satan as the captain of all the dark forces that stand against God. So, just who is Satan? Is he a real being, and if so, how did he get to be so evil? If God created all that is good, then how could God have created Satan, the father of darkness? Does Satan come from someplace else? Did God make a mistake?
Demons – what are they – who are they? Are they associated with Satan or are they figments of very fertile imaginations, brought to life through very real special effects and computer technology? Demons are real and are the minions of Satan – but when we think of minions, what do we think of? Believe it or not, we have become comfortable with demons being among us, because they are so often portrayed as misunderstood and even likable beings. Are we in trouble? Yes!
Angels... We have such varied perceptions of them. Sometimes they are viewed as little cupids, flying around shooting people with their arrows of love. Sometimes we think they are white glowing winged creatures. Sometimes we think they take on human form and intervene in specific and dramatic ways and sometimes we think that they are our companions with whom we can communicate about anything from the majestic to the mundane… So, really, what, who are angels, what do they do and how do they do it? Can we, should we be seeing and talking with them?
