Dr. Peter Jones of truthXchange is talking about the upcoming election, of course. Tuesday Americans will head to the polls to cast their vote for a presidential candidate that some voters feel is the “lesser of the two evils.” Dr. Jones reminds us that “This election is about more than politics. Perhaps, like never before, it is about spiritual warfare.” Many of us recall when it was all over the news that First lady Hillary Clinton “held imaginary conversations with Eleanor Roosevelt and Mahatma Gandhi as a therapeutic release.” Occultist Jean Houston, co-founder of the Foundation for Mind-Being Research, a group that studies the psychic experience and altered and expanded consciousness, worked with Mrs. Clinton at the White House as an adviser and was dubbed “Hillary’s Guru.” Dr. Jones worries that “Electing a president highly influenced by such [occult] thinking would have serious spiritual implications for the country and the Church.”

As America draws near to the important act of voting, there are some spiritual details we might miss. When, in the first century, Paul wrote to the Christians in Ephesus, the culture was dominated by the worship of the goddess Artemis. A kind of Mother Nature served by galli (homosexual priests), she symbolized human autonomy from the Creator and represented the universal worship of Nature.
Acts 19 gives us a sense of the spiritual state of Ephesus and so helps us as we consider our present situation. Architecturally impressive, Ephesus was full of sorcerers, witches and astrologers, who practiced occult magic arts. The Goddess stood at the center of this life, her temple one of the Seven Wonders of the World. As the antithesis to the God of the Bible, she represented fertility, the eternal return to the earth every spring of natural life. Artemis, often associated with the Egyptian goddess Isis, was worshiped both as the sustainer of the physical universe, and also as the goddess of the underworld. She was, therefore, the source of occult spirituality. In other words, in Ephesus, we see a direct face-off between the Goddess/creation/the Lie and God/the Creator/the Truth (Romans 1:25).
In our time of renewed spiritual paganism Isis/Artemis is back. Meet Jean Houston. Continue reading
