You may have seen them in the movies “Thor” and “Thor: The Dark World.” But there is nothing comic or cinematic about them. Odin is the major god of Germanic/Norse mythology. Thor is his hammer-wielding son. Loki, the jester/joker, is the third most prominent god of the religion (archetype of Lucifer) known as Odinism, a white-supremacist faith that propelled Hitler and his Third Reich toward the holocaust. What brings this ancient, rape-and-pillage religion of pagan violence front and center is the series of murders this last weekend in Kansas City. The killer, Frazier Glenn Cross, who hated Jews, was also a devout follower of Odinism and Asatru. (For more detailed information on both of these cult-religions, get my book LARSON’S BOOK OF WORLD RELIGIONS – CLICK HERE TO BUY – which has detailed analyses of both groups; see “Odinism” pages 316-320.) I’ve dealt extensively with all three demons – Odin, Thor, and Loki – and can assert they are some of the most powerful evil spirits in Satan’s realm.
In his autobiography, Cross writes, “Odinism! This was the religion for a strong heroic people, the Germanic people, from whose loins we all descended . . . Odin! Odin! Odin! Was the battle cry of our ancestors; their light eyes ablaze with the glare of the predator, as they swept over and conquered the decadent multi-racial Roman Empire.” Cross, who murdered three Jews in an orgy of anti-Semitic violence, certainly committed a hate crime. But it was also an occult crime. “Praise Odin, pass the ammunition, Sieg Heil, and Heil Hitler!” Cross also wrote. Perhaps fans of Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Torn Hiddleston (Loki) might want to rethink their obsession with this Marvel movie series. These aren’t just Hollywood fantasies. The gods of Odinism are real demons and three people are dead because one man, Frazier Glenn Cross, took them for who they really are.
An encouraging word: INTERNET IDOLATRY
First Corinthians 10:20 says that sacrifices of the ungodly to idols is “offered to demons, not God” (NIV). Paul goes on to warn, “I do not want you to be participants with demons.” In the western world where there isn’t much overt idolatry this passage may be passed over. But anything which becomes an obsession in our lives, taking time away from worship of Christ, is an idol, be it excessive entertainment, substance addiction, even the Internet. You may not think of trolling endlessly through countless web sites ad infinitum as being idolatry, but watch out. Don’t make Facebook or Twitter your idol. You may be offering to a demon when you think it’s a meme.
