I recently heard from a false Christian tare who seemed to be a tad bit angry. He made the following two points:
1) I love the Lord Jesus with all my heart
2) I love to read Harry Potter
The tare then showed his anger at my stand against the world of the occult.
Look closely at the above two points. On the one hand this tare claimed to be a Christian. On the other hand this tare loves Satan's world of the occult with all its witchcrafts, sorceries, and spells!
Two verses immediately came to my mind concerning this false Christian tare:
16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
Notice the two points given from the professing Christian tare in light of Titus 1:16. Point 1 was a profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Point 2 was a complete denial of that faith by his actions. This tare loved the world of the Satan's occult. He proved he does not belong to God by his actions which were a direct contradiction of his words!
The next verse that came to mind was a stern warning from the Lord to those who think they can play with and enjoy Satan's occultism:
6 And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.
The occult is a very evil sin before the Lord. It is so evil that it is considered an abomination. This type of activity is not really an issue for God's blood bought people. Saved people know better than to get involved with the world of the occult. Lost people, on the other hand, love all that Satan has to offer. They enjoy their Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, D&D, and all the options for occultic entertainment!
Here is a verse that shows how the occult is an abomination to the Lord:
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
Notice the above verses and consider this fact: All that Harry Potter and the world of Lord of the Rings stand for are condemned by God in the above verses!
Most false Christian tares are very easy to spot in these last days. These people love the same things that Satan loves. They reject doctrine and obedience from the Lord. Tares love the world of the occult. It is great fun and entertainment to them! They are also great lovers of all the Rock Music Satan has to offer. Tares usually attend liberal experience based churches where doctrine is not considered important.
With their mouth a tare may speak great glowing words and make great professions of their faith in the Lord Jesus. However, their actions will show the lost condition of their soul. These people belong to Satan and have never been redeemed. Beware of such people and stay far from them!
11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
12 These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;
13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.
14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,
15 To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.
17 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18 How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
