Mr. Harshbarger, a former Satanist, compiled a collection of true stories telling what led the person into the occult; the torment & terror, bondage, depression, isolation, fear, & in some cases suicidal ideation due to hopelessness that occured as the person delved deeper into the occult; & what made the occultist decide to leave & how the occultist made his/her way to Jesus Christ who was this person's only hope of salvation.
This book is also designed to inform the Christian on ways to tactfully introduce this person to Christ & dispel the fear of meeting & greeting this person. While the gospel message is in no way to be compromised, there is no one model used to introduce a person to Christ. It is important to know that most occultists are law abiding citizens who merge into mainstream society & never impose their beliefs on anyone. It is important not to go rushing in preaching condemnation & punishment of sin with hellfire & damnation. Also pointing out that their beliefs are wrong because the Bible says so will fall on deaf ears. It is important to be prayed up & led of the Holy Spirit. The Christian needs to reach out & first be a friend, reach out a helping hand if needed, listen to what the person is saying, & win their trust & let the occultist come to you with his/her need when the time is right & then you can lead this person to Christ. Once the person leaves the occult, it is going to take a long time to heal from the emotional & spiritual scars so threre are going to be additional needs that must be met. Christians cannot just leave the new converts to find their own way. These new converts are going to need your continued friendship & your gentle guidance all the more because they have given up their old life, beliefs, & friends-everything.
This book was very believable & credible. I would recommend this book to a teenager as well as to an adult-anyone that can read on a high school level. The stories came from a variety of practitioners such as Satanists, Wiccans, Pagans, Spiritists, & a Psychic Vampire so the reader gets to learn a few quick facts about different facets of beliefs & practices without too much sensationalism. This is one of my favorite books.
Also, the author welcomes questions from anyone trying to get out of the occult or anyone trying to help them at : firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here Jeff has collected the real life-experiences of a variety of now-Christians, who each in their own way followed paths into the Occult. No less than 10 examples are offered, in their own words - each describing what was their childhood, what drew them to the spiritual world, what were the effects and practices, and what ultimately was able to save them from the spiritual oppression - namely, the Demonic.
Jeff recounts again his own story and in this version I found more details of inner turmoil, more details about his own thoughts. These are helpful insights into why people turn to (evil) spiritualism. This book serves as an enlightening catalogue of how Demons entice us, lure us and ultimately entrap humans. There are common themes that emerge and are once again helpful to note: anger, feeling unwanted, not fitting in, seeking power, hearing voices, cutting and mental illness...
I am thankful this book helps to dispel the common stereotypes offered by Hollywood concerning the Demonic, and
rightly places all the salvation into the hands of Jesus Christ. And just like addicts who recover, the process is not often smooth or short-lived. (I do offer a caution though, because it appears that those who once sought out the magical/spiritual experiences of the occult, often seem drawn to the experiential ecstatic worship of Charismatic churches - and their particular bent and past addiction may keep them from seeing that many so-called churches are hiding demonic influence in plain sight.)
You never know what is going on in a person's life. Scary to think that a Satanist aspired to be a child psychologist. However, nice to know that God is still in the miracle business, every time He changes a human heart.
Wicca disguised as innocent nature appreciation, but in reality it's worshiping the creation rather than the Creator.
