It is written:
“Now to you I say, and to the rest in Thyatira, as many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden.” (Revelation 2:24)
Satanic ritual abuse (SRA) has reference to the practice of various covens who ritualistically abuse children in an attempt to gain demonic power. Our country has been told on various levels that these horrible practices do not occur, and that they are the creation of overactive imaginations gone awry.
The truth is, SRA is very real, and perhaps far more widespread then many Christians realize.
“My parents, before I was even a gleam in their eyes, became involved with some very warped individuals who worshiped the Devil and enacted horrible rites in a practicing satanic coven. Associated with some rich and well-connected members of Omaha’s elite, the events that occurred are far from fantasy, and if the true story and the surprising participants were ever revealed, a dark cloud of suspicion would shroud Omaha, Nebraska, ensnaring a political system in its web—in an undercover conspiracy that extends to the White House….For a long time, I just figured that my parents’ friends were a bunch of sick rich pedophiles enamored of the 1960s and 1970s cinema genre of witchcraft and the Devil, like the popular Vincent Price movies portrayed at the time. Often referred to as “happenings,” during these events, drunk, drugged-out narcissists paid my parents to do what they wanted with my siblings and me. (All three of my siblings are much older than I.) For many years into my young adulthood, I thought that the satanic stuff was basically their one step beyond hedonism. Bored, rich, and demented beyond reason, they assumed that my father in his high priest red robes (signifying blood sacrifice) would be their fall guy if the group were exposed. Both of my parents participated in orgies involving children, which was instrumental to Omaha’s “happenings.” Satanism, however, is far more than a movie set and a red robe. Practicing the black arts leads to what lives within the shadows, and you never know what you are going to attract by dabbling in such things. Often times, those who argue that black magic doesn’t work haven’t personally practiced it. Having experienced it directly, I am one who believes that some doors are meant to remain shut, but fools rush in where angels fear to tread, and if anything could be said of my father it was that he was a fool.” (David Shurter, Rabbit Hole: A Satanic Ritual Abuse Survivor’s Story, 5-9 (Kindle Edition); Council Bluffs, IA; Consider It Creative LLC)
While many in our country shy away from the realities of satanic ritual abuse, this abomination is very real.
