Satan Rears Himself in Colorado Shootings


A piece I wrote last weekend on Christian businesses prompted a snarling response from a reader who clearly was no follower of the Son of God. “Hail Satan!” it closed.

I thought nothing of the comment, chalking it up to the hostility Christians sometimes face from non-believers. That is, until I saw the news reports of the horrific shootings today at a suburban Denver movie theater.

The suspected triggerman, 24-year-old James Holmes, will be described variously as “troubled” or “unstable” or “detached from reality.” But I am convinced that the young killer was operating under satanic influence. 

Of course, to attribute today’s murder spree in the Rock Mountain State to the supernatural machinations of the evil one is to invite ridicule from those who refuse believe there are demonic forces at work in this fallen world of ours.

But the Scripture warns us that “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

The secularists that control much of our society – from academia to media to government – will attribute Holmes’ mass murder to causes that fit their world view.

Indeed, already the liberal Boston Globe has posted an article suggesting that stronger gun laws would have prevented the carnage.

Well, the writer obviously hasn’t visited Switzerland – as I have – where guns may be found in practically every home, but where there is no gun-related violence to speak of.

The Swiss disprove the fiction that guns cause murder. It’s twisted individuals, with no respect for life, no fear of God, that cause murder.

That’s not to suggest that the 24-year-old was the member of some satanic cult, like something out of “Rosemary’s Baby.” In fact, almost no one who commits murder – or  molests children or sells drugs or prostitutes women – is a knowing Satan worshipper.

And that’s exactly how our adversary, the devil, wants it.

He walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. He exerts his ungodly influence upon lost souls, like young man Holmes, without them ever being the wiser.

    I took one look at him and can’t help but think he’s possessed. I’ve been saying for years just because the catholic church stopped doing exorcism’s and people started thinking they are silly doesn’t mean the demons went away. :/

    According to God’s Word, God is the one that created Satan for a purpose. “I create the waster to destroy” and it is God that apparently created evil “I create evil…” and it is God that apparently created man to do evil “I create the wicked for the evil day” and “I am the potter” forming a vessel of dishonor. So Christians can stop blaming others for what their God (according to God) did.
    Remember, God is clear that “yet all is of God” and that “God operates all in all” and that everything is “according to his will”.

    But hey, those aren’t my words, those are the words of God or at least those are in the words claimed to be of God in his book. If you don’t like it, talk to god.

    • That you cited a few selected Bible verses is hardly a novel tactic of those who oppose God. The Bible tells us that, after his baptism and before starting his ministry, Jesus went into the wilderness where he fasted 40 days and nights and was tempted by the devil. Like you, the evil one quoted scripture, to trip up God’s elect. And, like yours, the quotations the devil mustered were out of context.

  3. This theory dawned on me only tonight. That’s how I found this blog post of yours, as a matter of fact, I searched to see if anyone else was thinking this. I totally agree with what you’ve said here. Some time ago I read one of Billy Graham’s books about Angels – and it helped me understand even more than my Catholic upbringing did about satanic issues. Acknowledging it for what it is can only help to keep it from gaining ground. Prayer is required.

  4. My thoughts exactly and with mt grandchildren minutes from there, it is frightening. People have already attributed it to a conservative talk show host. They will continue not to see and the majority will go down into perdition.

    • A former pastor of mine moved on to a church in Colorado some years ago. He says there is much satanic activity going on in that state.
