The occult practice of automatic writing and A.A.’s twelve steps

Most people are unaware that A.A.’s co-founder Bill Wilson received the details of the 12 Steps through spirit dictation.  John Lanagan of My Word Like Fire has taken the time to research A.A.’s beginnings. Following is only a smidgen of what he has uncovered over the years:

Ouija boardIt’s too late. Alcoholics Anonymous has served its purpose. That purpose has been to weaken the church, dilute the theology of Christians exposed to the 12 Step religion, and to point unbelievers away from Christ.

Through A.A. and other 12 Step groups, millions of Christians have placed Christ in a modern day pantheon, a temple of many gods, and have become used to worshiping with non-Christians. (2 Corinthians 6:14-17)

Although frequently (and wrongly) portrayed as Christians, Bill Wilson and A.A. co-founder Dr. Bob Smith delved deeply into the biblically forbidden practice of spiritualism.

“As for the person who turns to mediums and spiritists, to play the harlot after them, I will also set My Face against that person and will cut him off from his people.” (Leviticus 20:6)

Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder “Bill Wilson believed in spirits. There is a ‘spook’ room downstairs in Stepping Stones where he, [wife] Lois, and other like-minded recovering alcoholics tried to visit the spirit world and communicate with the dead. The archives have folders of the automatic writing he did when he and Lois would use their Ouija Board to invite the spirits to join them.” (Susan Cheever, My Name Is Bill, p. 157)

“There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. (Deuteronomy 18:10-11)  Continue reading

    While many may not be aware of the founding of AA, the sad truth is that the multitudes simply do not care. We are hooked on every sort of leading except the only true leadership, Scripture.

    That is the sad truth.

    The 12 Steps is a clear cult but when you challenge them they say you are in denial, when actually THEY are in denial.

    Yes, it is so sad but it is truth. I came to AA in 2002. Started to surch my Higher Power as AA suggested. Went through ALL Religions, staring with Kabbalah, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, All New Age Healing and Enlightenment ,Automatic Writing, Reiki, then came Taro , Self Realization, Divine Light…just name it…All and all.
    Totally Demonic Possession. Lord Jesus was my Last Hope. Finally He pulled me out from this “garbage”. I am still going through Demonic attacks, sometimes days and nights.”Entities” do not want to open our eyes and spread the WORD of our Savior Lord Jesus. As they say “ok, save your soul, but do not help others or we will torture you. And they do. It is NOT a Joke. I am so serious . I pray and read my Bible.
    I left AA couple years ago and just did not want to go back. Ask Lord to reveal the Truth and He kept his promises, He did answered me. I see all over Freemason and Illuminati , Occult logos , images, cause I was studied them. I thought my learning was from god, but they were from False Demon Gods. Ask and You shall Receive. The problem that WE NOT ASKING.

    When I first came to AA, in April of 79, I was an atheist, and a militant one. On June 22, I celebrated thirty-seven years of continuous sobriety. And, more important, after seeing those who had a sobriety ,
    which I wanted, they ,without exception, had a close relationship with Christ. It took me thirteen years to get there, but for the last twenty-four years, Jesus has been Lord of my life. And, this I owe to AA starting me on this road !
