Spreading Grace Our Way from the Past Again: a review of a Book Review on (Ana)Baptist witchcraft

June 5, 2019

Review- ‘‘Already a leading authority in the history of heresy, Gary K. Waite offers challenging new ways to integrate the early modern witch hunts in the broader anti-heretical developments of the Reformation era. Eradicating the Devil’s Minions sheds valuable light on a wealth of topics, including attitudes to miracles, debates over the sacraments – notably baptism, popular magic, shamanism and religious charisma – and the entire rhetoric of demonization.’ Stuart Clark, Professor of History, University of Wales, Swansea” –This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Arthur McJohn’s review: “This is one of the most important books written to aid our Truth War against Anabaptists/Baptists who we’ve already Discernmentalized are responsible for almost all the acts of evil in the world from their socialistic pacifism to the witchcraft of their unReformed baptisms.”

Don Jobson reviewing Arthur’s review of the review: That’s right Arthur in fact the forefathers of our Great Truth War considered Baptists more of an enemy than grace-hating Pope-worshippers—this is what makes their Doctrines so demonic. The Product Description of this important work gets it right:

Product Description

As a religious sect, the Anabaptists were seen to practice unusual rituals and follow an eccentric set of beliefs. One story, for instance, purports that an Anabaptist prophet, claiming to have visited heaven, persuaded his followers to run naked through the streets of Amsterdam. Eradicating the Devil’s Minions investigates these beliefs in the context of Reformation Europe, a time in which persecution, religious intolerance, and witch-hunting were rampant.

I. Todyaso comments: “This line proves how unReformed Baptists are just like our enemies the Emergents who follow Purpose-Driven Charismatic chaos. Their beliefs were and are unusual and eccentric. Reading about a Prophet visiting heaven—sounds Islamic to me. What’s that about running naked through the streets sounds like Hindoo voodoo hippie liberalism to me that just proves how much more impure their doctrines are to Ours.”

Truthslayer responds: “Sounds like the Cannuckistanesians to me…lol!”

Focusing primarily on the Habsburg-controlled regions of Europe, Gary K. Waite argues that the persecution of Anabaptists did not go hand in hand with the outbreak of witch-hunts in the mid-sixteenth century. Rather, distrust of Anabaptists predated the first major witch panic of 1562-3, and Waite suggests that the virulent propaganda against Anabaptist heretics helped convince governments of the existence of a diabolical threat. Although Anabaptists rejected religious magic, they were consistently demonized by Catholic and Lutheran polemicists.

Eradicating the Devil’s Minions is an investigation into the roots of religious intolerance in Reformation Europe, and a unique examination of mass hysteria and social extremism.

Truthslayer summing up for the ODMafia on behalf of God’s Only Inerrant Party: “We can only conclude that Baptists are heretics through guilt of association with the Anabaptists—True Truth Warriors must come against them but in case you doubt our Discernmentalism”—Finally we leave you with this quote from John Calvin in his “Brief Instruction to Arm Those of Good Faith Against the Errors of the AnaBaptist”, (Geneva, 1544):

Calvin Wrote, “These miserable fanatics have no other goal than to put everything into disorder.. They reveal themselves to be the enemies of God and of the human race… If it is not right for a Christian man to go to law with anyone to settle quarrels regarding possessions, inheritance, and other matters, than I ask these good teachers what will become of the world?”

Eric…take a Stand: “Harry Potter=Pornography!”

Eric Barger of Take A Stand notes that all  the troubles in today’s perilous times are the cause of kids getting into Harry Potter:

But I have no reservation in saying that reading Harry Potter is spiritual pornography for God’s people and is akin to spiritual adultery for a Christian.

Nearly everyday I hear someone say “I’m a Christian” but then defend Potter. And we wonder why our homes are deviled, our prayers left unanswered and our finances and affairs upside down? How can God ever bless us if we persist in entertaining ourselves and our families with philosophies that His word calls an “abomination?”

I am now repeating myself from other installments found here on the web site but it’s true – we need to choose who we are going to serve and take serious the command to expose the unfruitful works of darkness around us. (Ezk. 44:23, Eph. 5:10-11, II Cor. 6:14-18, etc.)

We here of the GOIP and Mafia agree as we’ve already exposed Harry Potter’s connection to that seeker-driven heretic Rick Warren’s Purpose-driven New Age Agenda. Clearly this is the reason for all the problems in the world today for as Eric Barger also says:

What verse 32 is saying is that though we are not actually involved with something which God clearly disdains (such as witchcraft) yet we approve of it, defend it, and do not speak out against it then we mightas well just become a full-fledged practicing pagan ourselves and stop beating around the bush. The occult is completely in opposition to God. We know it is totally from Satan’s camp and 100% out of God’s will, yet we lift up Harry Potter as a role model? How can we when millions around us will spend eternity in Hell because of the very things J. K. Rowling has built into her hero character? A great example of Romans 1:32 in action is this…a man caught in the trap of watching pornography, is actually the same in the sight of God as those who are PERFORMING the sexual acts. That makes it pretty plain and blunt doesn’t it?

Yes that’s right Harry Potter is the gateway drug to Playboy and other porno mags. What’s next will Harry Potter replace our Pure Doctrines? Blasphemous…this is why we must continue to take a stand in opposing that occultic pope of seeker-driven-ness and Purpose-Driven new worldliness Rick Warren.
