A whole new area of deliverance may soon be needed. Students of our School of Exorcism and Advanced Academy of Deliverance know that we already have our hands full helping victims of sexual abuse, domestic violence, alcohol, and recreational drugs. Coming soon, a return to the “turn on, tune in, drop out” saga of the sixties. Neuroscientists, looking for a cure for addictions and stress disorders, think they’ve found a solution. Drop acid (or psilocybin), let a wacko psychologist take you on a guided journey of the soul, and your fears, phobias, and addictions will vanish. You’ll experience “the dissolution of one’s ego followed by a merging of the self with the nature or the universe, a mystical experience [which] can permanently shift a person’s perspective and priorities,” according to a new book entitled “How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression and Transcendence.” And this garbage isn’t coming from some stoner on a street corner with a “Please Feed Me” sign. It’s originating from research at Johns Hopkins, New York University, and UCLA, according to an article in last week’s “Wall Street Journal.”
Many studies into what is called The New Science of Psychedelics” are being explored with U. S. taxpayers’ money, courtesy of the FDA. Reported studies cite experiences with LSD and shrooms to relieve the suffering of cancer patients and get people off cigarettes. Researchers glowingly tell of people experiencing: “flying back in time to witness scenes of European history”; “dying and watching one’s soul rise from a funeral pyre on the Ganges river in India”, and “standing on the edge of the universe, witnessing the dawn of creation.” Those trained by our School of Exorcism can easily identify these experiences as satanic. We’re witnessing the marriage of science and the demonic.
Christians must not be asleep at the wheel on this one. We must speak out against this spiritual insanity. We can’t wait until a huge segment of society has been swept into this deceptive vortex of sorcery. (“Pharmakia,” psychoactive drug indulgence, is translated “sorcery” and “witchcraft” in Gal. 5:20, Rev. 9:21, 18:23, 21:8, and 22:15.) The idea of accessing the supernatural with drugs isn’t new. But today it’s gaining the endorsement of scientists and clinicians. If this new frontier of mind-bending physio-psycho therapy gains traction, we’re going to need many more trained and experienced exorcists. We’ll be working overtime to cast out the demons that the FDA and major universities are inviting to possess the souls of the unsuspecting.
An Encouraging word: DOMINION BELONGS TO GOD
I don’t know about you, but I’m growing weary of politicians and political pundits, on the left and right, who speak as if they alone had the answer to the moral and social ills of our age. They could all use a dose of humility and remember the words of Psalm 22:28: “Dominion belongs to the Lord, and He rules over the nations.” It’s a bit amusing to watch them strut and speak, like a rooster in a henyard. There will come a day when the kingdoms of this world will all bow before Christ. Don’t look to a person or program for your hope, seek the One who made all that is and has dominion over all.
