As if municipal bankruptcy, a jailed mayor, abandoned and burnt-out neighborhoods, and their most famous son being Eminem isn’t bad enough, the stalwart citizens of Detroit now have to contend with Satanist. A New York-based group of Anton Lavey wanna-bes wants to build a temple to Satan in Ted Nugent’s Motor City. This is the same group who are holding that so-called Black Mass in Oklahoma City. Now before you become too concerned, this isn’t exactly a mass movement. Out of the five million or so citizens of the greater metro Detroit area this publicity-seeking sect of satanists only has 20 members. And that’s according to them; and since satanists have no qualms about lying that is probably an inflated figure. More likely it’s a motley crew of a dozen or so malcontents looking for their 15 seconds of fame, generated by the hysteria of concerned Christians. I’m not saying we should take this lightly. If they deceive one soul with their antics and draw even one innocent kid into their ranks, that is one person too many. Still, let’s not get too worked up over this and give them the recognition they are seeking. My advice is to pray for these people; issue calm, non-alarming warnings; then, ignore them as a small band of misfits who need our vitriol to survive. Don’t give them the pleasure of creating collective Christian heartburn.
An encouraging word: WHAT YOU START, GOD CAN FINISH!
Psalm 138:7-8 (KJV) says, “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever.” The word “perfect” in the original language means to “accomplish” or “complete.” When you start down the road to freedom, you sometimes can’t imagine what the end will look like. There may be battles along the way, but if you trust the Lord’s plan and process, He will bring it to completion to accomplish His purpose in your life.
