Please be aware that this Section of the 'exWitch Australia' Website is by no means complete... in fact I hope it continues to evolve and grow and is never declared 'complete' as such!
I more than welcome any contributions (short or long) from ex-Wiccans, ex-Pagans and ex-Occultists - as well as any relevant articles from a theological perspective from Christian believers who do not share this background.
If you have articles or information to share, please feel free to contact us at

SPIRITUAL WARFARE PROFILES OF SATANISM: Are They Misleading?
Bob and Gretchen Passantino - from the Christian Research Journal, Winter 1992
The doctrine that Christians can be demonized is popularly taught across divergent theological lines. Although its proponents reject the term demon possession, they nonetheless define demonization as demons inhabiting and controlling people. Some scriptural arguments are used in support of this view, but experiences (in which demons are seemingly driven out of Christians) are the primary reason why people accept it. more > >
CAN A CHRISTIAN BE AFFECTED BY A CURSE?
Bob and Gretchen Passantino - from the Christian Research Journal, Winter 1992
Is there a vast satanic conspiracy inflicting unthinkable abuse on today's youth? Could your own inner problems stem from such abuse - only the memories have been suppressed? Such questions are fuelling an explosive, divisive controversy. Bob and Gretchen Passantino share the results of their extensive investigation into this phenomenon. more > >

SATANIC RITUAL ABUSE IN POPULAR CHRISTIAN LITERATURE: Why Christians Fall for a Lie Searching for the Truth
I have recieved more than a few queries about so-called 'demonic doorways' from several Christians who have visited this Site. As impersonal as it may seem, but in order to free up time for further updates to the Site... here's a response that I prepared earlier *wink*... more > >
Ephesians 6:10 tells us... "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full Armour of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes."... So what, then, is the Armour of God? more > >

Marcia Montenegro - from Christian Answers for the New Age
Although there are rock groups in the past and present that used satanic lyrics and symbols, none have seemed to have actually created a cult following among teenagers and young people as has Marilyn Manson. Named Best New Artist of 1996 by Rolling Stone magazine, Manson's third album, "Antichrist Superstar," which sold more than 1 million copies, reached No. 3 on Billboard magazine's survey. more > >
Dr. Ronald Nash - from the Christian Research Journal, Winter 1994
Many Christian college students have encountered criticisms of Christianity based on claims that early Christianity and the New Testament borrowed important beliefs and practices from a number of pagan mystery religions. Since these claims undermine such central Christian doctrines as Christ's death and resurrection, the charges are serious. But the evidence for such claims, when it even exists, often lies in sources several centuries older than the New Testament. Moreover, the alleged parallels often result from liberal scholars uncritically describing pagan beliefs and practices in Christian language and then marveling at the striking parallels they think they've discovered. more > >

CHRISTIANITY, THE RESURRECTION OF CHRIST AND THE MYSTERY RELIGIONS
Dr. Ronald Nash - from the Christian Research Journal, Fall 1993
Did the Christianity of the first century A.D. borrow any of its essential beliefs from the pagan philosophical systems of that time? Was first century Christianity - the Christianity reflected in the pages of the New Testament - a syncretistic religion (i.e., a religion which fuses elements of differing belief systems)? more > >
WAS EARLY CHRISTIANITY CORRUPTED BY 'HELENISM'?
The Word of Faith movement grew out of the Pentecostal movement in the latter 20th century. Its founder was E. W. Kenyon, who studied the metaphysical New Thought teachings of Phineas Quimby. Mind science (where "name it claim it" originated) fit well with the emerging Pentecostal movement and its emphasis on the supernatural, so he combined them and created a peculiar mix of orthodox Christianity and mysticism. Kenneth Hagin in turn studied under E. W. Kenyon and made the Word of Faith movement what it is today. Although individual teachings range from completely heretical to completely ridiculous, what follows is the basic theology most Word of Faith teachers align themselves with. more > >
In Word Faith teaching, the believer is told to use God, whereas the truth of biblical Christianity is just the opposite, God uses the believer. Word Faith or prosperity theology sees the Holy Spirit as a power to put to use for whatever the believer wills. The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is a Person who enables the believer to do God's will. The movement closely resembles some of the destructive greed sects that infiltrated the early church. Paul and the other apostles were not accommodating to or conciliatory with the false teachers who propagated such heresy. They identified them as dangerous false teachers and urged Christians to avoid them. more > >

Brian Houston, is founder of Hills Christian Life Centre in Sydney, home of the fantastically popular Hillsongs Music (you've probably sung their song 'My Jesus, My Saviour (Shout to the Lord)' by Darlene Zschech if your church dabbles with anything after 1900!).
As the blurb on the back of his books says, he "loves life. As one of Australia's most sought after speakers, he has a passion to see people fulfil their potential in every sphere of life. A respected church leader, popular motivational speaker and skilled communicator, Brian travels extensively, addressing leadership conferences throughout the world. His television program Life is for Living is broadcast in over 30 nations, and his natural ability to mix humour with a strong, clear message draws him to people of all age groups and backgrounds". His Christian ministry also includes "dynamic community centres that employ professional doctors, a psychologist and financial consultant".
These vocations perhaps indicate Brian's three main preoccupations: health, mental well-being and self-esteem, and wealth. In this article we will be addressing the last of these preoccupations, and asking whether the emphasis Brian puts on it is Biblical or not. more > >
HILLSONG'S MESSAGE TO THE YOUNG
There is perhaps not a more debated issue in the church today than the issue of women serving as pastors / preachers in ministry. As a result, it is very important to not view this issue
as men versus women. There are women who believe that women should not serve as pastors and that the Bible places restrictions on the ministry of women - and there are men who believe that women can serve as preachers and that there are no restrictions on women in ministry. This is not an issue of chauvinism or discrimination. It is an issue of Biblical interpretation.
G. Richard Fisher (Personal Freedom Outreach)
The inspired Apostle Paul warned us: "Let no one deceive you" (2 Thessalonians 2:3). It is apparent that we are vulnerable to deception and we must not forget it. We must be on guard and protect ourselves against it. There is deception everywhere in the religious world. We must be alert.
