As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

  • Vampires, werewolves and witches

    Another demonic delusion that has endured thru the centuries are the vampire, werewolf and witch folklores that are the subject of endless movies and TV shows. The world is still very much at war with Christ and his gospel. The bite of the vampire or werewolf is a caricature of the gospel minister who preaches the word and someone is converted. The world has no experience with the spiritual nature of the gospel so conversion is mockingly portrayed as the transmission of the strain of a virus or disease. Vampires would be Protestant ministers who preach grace. Werewolves would be Catholic and Orthodox priests who preach grace. Witches would be females who preach grace. Christians actually do feed on blood but they feed on the blood of Christ that cleanses them from all sin. In many of these wild yarns the vampires and werewolves are mortal enemies but sometimes they are friends which perfectly mirrors the history of Protestants and Catholics over the centuries. Often there will be a mad scientist vampire who is working on something called a hybrid which is a crude way of illustrating a blending of the faith. A Protestant who converts to Catholicism or Orthodoxy would be a hybrid and a Catholic or Orthodox who converts to Protestantism would be a hybrid as well. It's very difficult to make a real hybrid because the Protestant gospel is against works and the Catholic gospel is built around human works.

    The modern application of this theme can be found in the wizarding world of spells and magic. A wizard would be a male that preaches grace and once again a witch would be a female who preaches grace. The powerful wizard uses his wand to cast spells over people with the wand representing the bible translation and his spells being the verses and arguments he uses to win the unbeliever over to Christ. Good spells would be those that lead to conversion while evil spells and dark magic would be those that cause people to be lost. Dispensationalists would be examples of evil wizards and witches who use dark magic and write Christians completely out of the new covenant leaving them without a sacrifice for sin. Adventists would be other examples of evil wizards and witches who weave the Sabbath into their gospel and cause believers to fall from grace. Satan who is the inspiration for many of the blockbusters that come from Hollywood mockingly portrays genuine faith as magic. A pure-blood would be a Christian who grows up in a believing family. A half-blood would be a Christian with unbelievers in the family. And a muggle is someone with no faith at all because they have been deceived from birth. Often the pure-bloods will go to Christian schools and have Christian friends and get Christian jobs so they have to contact with the outside world. They can see the world but they have no connection with the spirit that is in the world whereas the half-blood and muggle are very familiar with the spirit of the world.

      The point is that all the vampire/werewolf/wizard themes are mockeries of Christianity and Christians. Satan hates the gospel so he turns it into a virus or disease or magic spell. All the walking dead and zombie TV shows are parodies of killing Christians and cutting their heads off. Christians often demonize the world and unfortunately the world demonizes Christians.

          This is an interesting thread, as it relates to a subject that I had opened up in the Freemasonry Section of CARM Feel free to check out the information there:

          https://forums.carm.org/vb5/forum/cu...of-freemasonry

          It is my desire and hope to encourage your faith in Jesus Christ and Him crucified! The reality is that Freemasonry is, as they define themselves, "the ancient religions of blending religions", and television is and has always been their primary tool or weapon for that agenda. In the secret world of the Illuminati/Freemasons, they identify themselves as being Satanists, Witches, Werewolves, Wizards, and the lists goes on with all of the other blasphemies. They consist of those that hold and teach the doctrines of Balaam and the Nicolaitans (Egyptians) .... they advertise those doctrines on a daily basis in all forms of Media, be it Movies, Television Shows, Music Videos/Songs, Video Games, and the Mainstream News Media. In addition to the doctrines of devils that they promote, they have also set up and presented various images of idols in all of the listed formats. This is how Jezebel has been teaching and seducing the Lord's servants per Revelation 2-3 KJB 1611. And they have been targeting Christians for a very long time via their false prophets, such as the Seventh Day Adventists, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, and the others listed in my primary thread. Through shows that have been produced by Walt Disney, they have been specifically targeting children by promoting and teaching witchcraft, whilst sewing Satanic seeds of sexual perversion, including and most especially pedophilia, and so forth, as it is now coming out that Walt Disney Corporation had been embedding subliminal images of male and female genetalia, as well as propagation of beastiality in ALL of their films ... all done to adversely affect the minds of little children, for generations, from their infancy, and this is why we are witnessing a major boom with a great majority of Millennials converting to Wicca/Witchcraft, as well as the advanced acceptance of the practice of open sin, such as homosexuality, transgengerismn and other things of like manner, with the destruction of the Family Unit, while in other instances, the advancement "Inter-Faith Marriage", such as we see happening with Nick Jonas, who was raised up in Disney, along with so many other Music, Movie, and Television "Stars". In addtion to their use of Mass Media, they have also infiltrated our Christian Denominations, and even within the last few years, we have witnessed several Pastors, on "Christian Raidio" and on "Christian Television" incorporating such movies as "The Wizard of Oz", "Harry Potter", and the like into SERMONS! (Read Jeremiah 2) This is how they leaven the Churches! Since the invention of Radio and Film, despite the faithful Pastors of old, that preach from the pulpits that television was a tool of the Devil, many people ignored those warnings, and had invited the Devil and his ministers (infidels) right into their homes, and that is precisely why it is that so many people have turned away from the faith, and of those that flock to Mega Churches, are never fed solid truth from The Holy Bible. In fact, a huge majority of "Christians" cannot even share the hope that is within them, because they can not even tell you what the true Gospel of Salvation is!! They are suffering famine for the hearing of the words of the LORD! In short, the Freemasons do indeed hate Christiany, and their effort right now is to usurp final authroity away from Christians in the United States, England, and the rest of the Nations around the world that are Christian, and they are working feverishly to accomplish this for one purpose and one purpose only, and that is so that Antichrist can sit down in the throne of God and claim to be God, in the thrid Temple, when it is built in Jerusalem.

            Yes, I agree. Homosexuality, transgenderism and the like are incorporated into almost every TV show nowadays which is an attack on the biblical family unit. Strong, healthy Christian families produce strong and faithful Christians so they are always under attack by the corrupt media of the devil. Homosexuality is one of the worst sins of our day and Tel Aviv is the gay capital of the world so that should tell you something about Israel. I don't stand with Israel and I'm not afraid to say it.

              Vampires were originally just zombies and have only in the last hundred years of movies and comics taken on entirely different kinds of ways to be and powers to wield. Werewolves were said to be people cursed to turn into monsters against their will and murder people. Most often they were people that lived closely to or in the wild. Both were ideas invented to warn people of various dangers: not to mock anyone or anything. You should study ancient folklore before posting opinions about it.
              Some people are educated beyond their intellect.

                Here's a werewolf who was burnt at the stake or should I say a wealthy Catholic who had recently converted to Protestantism.

                (1589) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Stumpp

                Those who are willingly ignorant of history will be doomed to repeat it.

                  The years during which Stumpp was supposed to have committed most of his crimes (1582–1589) were marked by internal warfare in the Electorate of Cologne after the abortive introduction of Protestantism by the former Archbishop Gebhard Truchsess von Waldburg. He had been assisted by Adolf, Count of Neuenahr, who was also the lord of Bedburg.

                  Stumpp was most certainly a convert to Protestantism. The war brought the invasion of armies of either side, the assaults by marauding soldiers and eventually an epidemic of the plague.

                  When the Protestants were defeated during 1587, Bedburg Castle became the headquarters of Catholic mercenaries commanded by the new lord of Bedburg—Werner, Count of Salm-Reifferscheidt-Dyck, who was a staunch Catholic determined to re-establish the Roman faith.

                  So it is not inconceivable that the werewolf trial was but a barely concealed political trial, with the help of which the new lord of Bedburg planned to bully the Protestants of the territory back into Catholicism. If it had only been just another execution of a werewolf and a couple of witches, as occurred about this time in various parts of Germany, the attendance of members of the aristocracy—perhaps including the new Archbishop and Elector of Cologne—would be surprising. Furthermore, the trial remained a singular event

                        There are no such things as zombies except in fairy-tale and La La land.
                        People without faith in Christ live in La La land so zombies are very real there.
