Baal2 268x300 Satanic Clubs Coming To Your Local Elementary SchoolAt 2 Peter 3:3-4, we read that, “First, I want to remind you that in the last days there will come scoffers who will do every wrong they can think of, and laugh at the truth. This will be their line of argument: ‘So Jesus promised to come back, did He? Then where is He? He’ll never come! Why, as far back as anyone can remember everything has remained exactly as it was since the first day of creation.'” What moral conditions in society can we expect in those last days? 2 Timothy 3:1-5 describes those days. Are we living in those days now? A few recent events suggest that we may very well be living in such perilous days.

As one example, in mid-September, a 25-foot high, 30,000 pound replica of the Triumphal Arch of Palmyra, which was the original entry to the Temple of Ba’al, was rebuilt in New York City’s City Hall Park. In fact, you may recall that the original Arch was deemed so offensive that ISIS militants destroyed the temple ruins and even killed the archeologist who served as its caretaker for forty years. My readers may recall that the Holy Bible describes Ba’al as the god to whom, including in ancient Israel, many sacrificed their children, before whom they practiced ritualistic prostitution and sexual immorality in their temples, and called good “evil” and evil “good.” And in fact, Ba’al was the god in whose name Israel persecuted the prophets and the righteous of that day. Interestingly, in Matthew 12:27, the Lord Jesus calls Satan “Beelzebub,” linking the devil to Baal-Zebub, the Philistine deity of 2 Kings 1:2.

As part of the satanic focus on enticing children, it has been widely reported that the Portland, Oregon, chapter of the Satanic Temple will bring its “After School Satan Club” to the Sacramento Elementary School. One leader of the Satanic Temple said in an interview that the Temple has been approved to begin its program, which focuses on “science and rational thinking,” on October 19th. The spokesman has said that most members of the Satanic Temple are atheists and that the program for the elementary school children promotes “benevolence and empathy for everybody.” However, the spokesman did admit that the real purpose was to counter “The Good News Club,” the after-school clubs organized by Child Evangelism Fellowship, a Bible-centered, Christian organization. In addition, the Satanic Temple of Seattle, Washington, has asked the Mount Vernon School District for permission to start an after-school program at the Centennial Elementary School. On its website, the After School Satan Clubs says:

It’s important that children be given an opportunity to realize that the evangelical materials now creeping into their schools are representative of but one religious opinion amongst many. While the Good News Clubs focus on indoctrination, instilling them with a fear of Hell and God’s wrath, After School Satan Clubs will focus on free inquiry and rationalism, the scientific basis for which we know what we know about the world around us. We prefer to give children an appreciation of the natural wonders surrounding them, not a fear of everlasting other-worldly horrors.

Plans are to expand the satanic clubs into elementary and high schools in all 50 states. Of course, like their Ruler Beelzebub, the Satanist “free-thinkers” want you to believe that their motives are pure and altruistic. In this way, you will let your guard down. Over time, the children (and parents) are in Satan’s grip. As I wrote on these pages in late August, “[T]here is another growing demographic group that also enthusiastically supports the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. The Secular Coalition for America, a lobbying group that represents atheists, agnostics, and free-thinkers, recently released a presidential voting guide on those issues deemed to be most important to atheists.” Donald Trump earned a low “F” grade, according to the atheist group, whereas, of course, Hillary Clinton earned an “A” grade. In fact, a July 2016 Pew Research Center poll found non-religious voters prefer Mrs. Clinton to Mr. Trump by an overwhelming 67 to 23 percent margin. And so, if you like the idea of satanic clubs in your local government schools, I suspect that there is one major candidate running for president who is very comfortable with it. Remember, brothers and sister in Christ, elections have consequences.
