Over the last few years a bandwagon mentality has started to develop, which I have likened to the Salem Witch Trials. Normally sane individuals have started looking at every single gesture of major movie and music stars and accusing them of worshiping Satan, being in the Illuminati, and even performing rituals on stage. But, is there any truth to these claims?
Most people that know me know that I’m skeptical by nature. I don’t just believe stuff because someone makes the claim and it sounds true. I question pretty much everything, and I don’t mind who gets upset about it. More importantly, accusing someone of worshiping the Devil or being involved with the Illuminati is the wrong thing to do without hard evidence. In my opinion, pointing out gestures in the middle of a performance IS NOT proof at all. We are told not to bear false witness (lie about people), and if these accusations turn out not to be true, it means that whoever partook in the spreading of these lies is guilty before God.
“And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother; Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you. And those which remain shall hear, and fear, and shall henceforth commit no more any such evil among you.” – Deuteronomy 19:18-20
If you need help identifying false witnesses and false teachers, continue reading this post or check out my articles: Top 7 Signs of A False Teacher and 7 More Signs of A False Teacher. The rest of this post is about asking for evidence and exposing false witnesses posing as “watchmen”, so let’s start by looking at the supposed rituals.
Are They Really Rituals?
I was first introduced to the subject of deals with the devil and Satanic conspiracies among musicians in the book: Take A Walk On The Darkside: Rock and Roll Myths, Legends, and Curses (you’ll love it if you’re into conspiracies). Since then I’ve been pretty interested in the subject, but not interested enough to make false accusations about people I don’t know. The logical way to go about this is to start by look at the definition of what a ritual is and take it from there.
- Ritual: “A religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order.” – Google
In order for something to qualify as a ritual, it must be religious in nature, which also means that there is a good chance that it has been performed more than once. For those making the accusations, we should all be asking the following questions whenever a celebrity is accused performing a satanic or occult ritual:
- What is the specific name of the ritual being performed?
- Where was the ritual first seen by the person making the claim?
- Where can we find references to their interpretation of the ritual?
If a person cannot answer these questions in a straight forward manner, it is likely they are making it up as they go. If they can and do answer all of the above questions with straight forward answer, there is a good chance they are telling the truth.
As much as we would like to believe that every Christian out there has noble intentions, the fact is that its simply not true. Some of these guys are really shady. Some of the people you’ve heard on my show are backstabbing cowards that like to do sneaky and malicious things in private, then act like victims in public. Some of these guys know that some conspiracies have an expiration date, so they milk as much out of it as they can, at your expense, before that date arrives.
Many of the people putting out the nonsense are very much aware that they have turned the field of the Illuminati into a complete joke. Instead of it being a real study about actual history, it has turned into a modern day witch hunt. You can’t question them or you must be Illuminati or you must have handlers. You can’t challenge their accusations or you must be Illuminati or you must have handlers. They exhibit most of the signs that false teachers use to keep control of their cults. Before you continue, please keep the following in mind:
- People were 100% sure that the Illuminati was sending us messages through movies about a Super Bowl False Flag… nothing happened and then people had the nerve to get mad at me for saying nothing was going to happen. If you missed it, check out my articles: Watchmen’s Folly and False Flag Non Event Watch.
- People were 100% sure that Comet Elenin was some kind of sign from God or possible doomsday event, and nothing happened.
When do these people start apologizing to the public for putting out so much wrong information? When do they apologize for sounding false alarms? The answer is that they never will. They will continue to do so as long as people don’t care enough to call them on it when they are wrong.
“His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber. Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.” – Isaiah 56:10-11
If you’re offended by any of what I’ve said so far, then hold on, its about to be a pretty rough week.
The Truth About Business Marketing
What many of you don’t know that is in addition to everything else that I do, I’m currently pursuing a degree in Business Marketing. Whenever I see a performance what Miley Cyrus recently did, my mind immediately goes to marketing. When Beyonce did the Super Bowl performance, I immediately thought marketing. Whenever Kirk Cameron does or says something controversial, I immediately think marketing. Check out this book by Buzzmarketing: How To Get People To Talk About Your Stuff, by Mark Hughes. I read this book a while back and he pretty much gives the formula for successful buzz marketing. If you don’t think celebrities and marketing firms everywhere have read it, you’d be wrong. Mark Hughes took Half.com from 0 to $300,000,000 in less than six months (it was bought by eBay). You can be sure they’ve read it, and if they’ve read it, you need to read it to so you know the tactics when you see them.
What many people fail to keep in mind is that marketing is a multi billion dollar business. Every record label, movie production company, and large corporation has a marketing firm on retainer or has a marketing department of their own. What they do is watch for social trends and figure out how to use them to their benefit. I’ll give you a few examples of why I immediately think marketing, and the questions that come to mind:
- Is there a product that recently came out or coming out in the near future?
- Has this person done something similar in the past when they had a product to sell?
- Does this person have a marketing team at their disposal?
I’ll start with Kirk Cameron and two recent examples. When Kirk Cameron made his anti gay comments, Courageous had just recently been released on DVD less than 60 days prior. Was this just a coincidence?
Recently Cameron made the claim that their Facebook page promoting his new project Unstoppable was being blocked. His message received over 300,000 shares on Facebook alone, and thousands on YouTube as well. I bet that didn’t hurt sales at all. Keep in mind that this is the same guy that went onto a college campus with a film crew, causing a disturbance enough to make the news, in order to sell his version of Darwin’s On The Origin of Species. I’m willing to go out on a limb and say that the next time Cameron makes the news, his wares will have just been release or will be soon coming for sale.
The fact is, if you want to get Christians talking, you play to their fear of being “persecuted” or their fear of the Devil. I believe Kirk uses the persecution angle to his advantage.
- He challenged the theory of evolution on a college campus, knowing full well that atheists and scientists would be outraged, come after him, and thus get Christians to rally to his support. No better place to talk humanities origin than on a campus where the origin of humanity is taught (On The Origin of Species 150th Anniversary Edition Released)
- He knew his anti gay comments would anger people, they would come after him, and once again, Christians would rally to support him. Was he really monumentally courageous for saying this on TV (Courageous and Monumental Released)?
- He knew Christians would rally behind him because Facebook must not want the information he has to get out. I guess he proved his movie really is unstoppable (Unstoppable Released In Theaters).
Read those bullet points again. Notice the tactic and then look at the name of the project being promoted.
If Kirk Cameron Can Do It…
Here are a few trivia questions for you to consider when it comes to pop stars and famous people, the Illuminati, and Satanic Rituals:
- When Christians, gays, and feminists rallied against Eminem, did his album sell 10,000,000 copies or not?
- When accusations of Rihanna’s involvement in the Illuminati started to circulate, did she break digital sales records?
- When accusations of Jay Z and Kanye’s involvement in the Illuminati started to circulate, did Watch The Throne become one of the highest selling albums in iTunes history?
- After Beyonce’s Super Bowl performance generated Satanic ritual talk, did her sales skyrocket?
- After Miley Cyrus’ recent performance, did her songs skyrocket to occupy 2 of the top 5 spots on the Billboard Music Charts?
All of these people have millions of dollars on the line. All of these people have access to marketing firms or marketing departments at their record labels. The point of the marketing team is to get people talking. The more people that talk, the more money that gets spent by the public. The more money that gets spent by the public, the more money these people can put in their pockets.
My personal opinion is that all of what we are seeing that looks Satanic or Occultic is really just marketing. For someone like Jay Z that DOES NOT believe in the Devil of the Bible, it means nothing to quote the Satanic Bible, wear the baphomet, or throw up the DIAMOND (upside down pyramid) which people claim is an Illuminati symbol. Well, maybe not nothing… it does mean millions more dollars in his pocket. And just as an extra side note, Jay Z is part of the Five Percent Nation, an offshoot of the Nation of Islam. He is not Illuminati, much of the Five Percent Religion embraces Egypt and its symbols, such as the pyramid.
Frequently Asked Questions
I figured I’d take this time out to answer a few frequently asked questions that I tend to get whenever I question the current bandwagon fad.
- Do you believe in the Illuminati?
Yes, I believe in the Illuminati. What I don’t believe is that they are recruiting major celebrities into their ranks. The fact is they are a secret organization. Nothing is less secret than having an Illuminati member with millions of fans and millions of non fans waiting for them to throw up Illuminati symbols in the middle of a live performance broadcast on TV to millions of people that don’t care one way or the other.
- Do you believe in Satanic rituals?
Yes, but I believe in actual established rituals. What I do not believe are online “experts” that somehow know what every sign, symbol, and gesture mean, but can’t give me a historical source that I can reference myself.
- Why are you so skeptical about everything?
Because people lie. Sometimes people aren’t satisfied with what the Bible has to say, so they add things to it, take things out of it, or just make it up altogether. In Acts 17:11, the Bereans were commended for searching the scriptures to make sure what Paul was teaching them was true. If someone is teaching something as Biblical, but can’t use the Bible to verify it, it is false, period.
