worship fits right into the new global spirituality that claims to please
God, but it is not Christian. It totally contradicts God’s Word, His ways
and His promises.
ten years ago, I wrote a book called A Twist of Faith. You can
find the whole book online at our website. Would you please read
chapters 1, 8 and 10? Here is the link to the first chapter:
those chapters (especially 8 and 10) would help you understand the
conflict. But let me summarize it:
1. Angel worship clashes with the first –
and most important – of the 10 Commandments: “You shall have no other
gods before Me…” To the masses that trust their favors, today's sweet,
permissive angels are worshipped and trusted as were pagan gods and
spirits in former times.
2. Those who worship
angels are trusting a contrary force or power. The deity -- who counterfeits God’s
promises and sets no moral boundaries -- is an expression of the timeless power behind pagan
gods and goddesses through the ages. In the end, the worshipper may
experience mystical feelings, even see magical results, but this
coveted "experience" is a
costly and momentary thrill. It means rejecting the Biblical God and
all His promises for all eternity. This occult
pathway ends in terror and pain, not peace and beauty.
3. These "angels" and their altars fit right into traditional
paganism. In ancient cultures around the world, both dark and “light”
spirits (the latter were more
deceptive) behind physical symbols would communicate with
their human subjects. Today – as more an more people ignore God’s
Word and turn to counterfeits, we see a revival of pagan figurines,
amulets and goddess figures (including those pretty angels which
bear no likeness to Biblical angels.)
4. Biblical angels carry out God’s will.
In contrast, pagan "angels" deceive worshippers and gain their trust by
offering promises they can’t carry out – such as protection, health,
etc. Ultimate they bring the kind of spiritual bondage that
characterize the evil spiritual master-mind behind the scene.
Christian missionaries who loved God, traveled into the darkest and
most dangerous parts of the world to bring God’s true light and love
to those who were trapped in bondage to the demonic spirits that
controlled the people.
