ANYTHING BUT FAITH IN OUR LORD
In Brussels the European Convention is deliberating on how to keep God out of a proposed new constitution for the European Union. This is an attempt to break with its christian roots. Meanwhile the occult is spreading like fire in Europe and the rest of the world.
A report from "Ananova", the news agency of London based "Orange Media" reports that Europe's first school for witches and wizards has opened in Austria. Students can take a six-semester course, including learning to make potions and cast spells, ending in a "sorcerers' diploma." ... The school caters for three classes of students. This year up to 15 sorcerers' apprentices will be taught astrology, magic, history of magic, meditation and divination and later put their theoretical studies into practice: preparing potions, making talismans and performing rituals.
The "Pasadena Star News" reported that "the Curve fire that has consumed more than 16,000 acres in the Angeles National Forest was started by candles used in a ritual involving animal sacrifice, U.S. Forest officials said late Wednesday..."
In England, in the Canterbury Cathedral, "The Telegraph" (UK) , dated: 8/30/2002 reports that new non-christian art work has been installed in the church. "Titled 18:1-7 The Crypt, the digital installation, the first such work to be exhibited in the 1,400-year-old cathedral, combines moving images of a two-year-old baby with the sound of a human voice chanting 'om'.
James Cattell, who has exhibited his work in London and Stockholm, said: 'The word 'om' used within the soundpiece derives from a Buddhist influence but has been adopted by many individuals outside of this religion for their own purpose.'
Canon Richard March, the cathedral's Director of Education, said 'the use of "om" was an integral part of the piece, and contributed to the spirituality of the place.'
In Hinduism, "om" is regarded as the "sacred syllable" representing the universe and its oneness with God. It also features in the greatest Buddhist mantra, known as the 'jewel in the lotus'."
