sk8terlou asked:Is the dream catcher evil? I love your theme btw. <3 You made it? Godbless.

Yes dream catchers are evil.  I believe that I can speak of this.  My grandmother is a full blood Oglala Lakota. Dream catchers are a form of spiritualism and they are not of the Lord. Christians shouldn’t engage in that type of mysticism, especially something that is supposed to involved something supernaturally. Since it’s not from God, if you think it actually works in some way that is wrong. Even if you don’t think it does anything then why hang something occultic in a Christian household? It’s linked with spiritualism.  Paul referred to religious belief systems that deny the truth of the gospel, the atonement for sins through the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, as “having a form of godliness but denying its power”—Timothy 3:1-5. Although many spiritualists attend Sunday services, sing hymns, and worship a single God, spiritualism and Christianity are not compatible belief systems. In addition to their belief in an evolutionary movement of souls through progressively higher celestial planes, spiritualists seek their truth from contact with spirits through séances, Ouija boards, and mediums. Many spiritualists maintain that they have their own personal spirit guides, from whom they receive all kinds of information and direction for their lives. For spiritualists, the Bible is not the primary source of truth and knowledge about the afterlife and God. 

The Bible, in fact, contains many stern warnings against spiritualism (Leviticus 19:31, 20:6, 21:8; Deuteronomy 18:9-13). The first king of Israel, King Saul, broke God’s commandment not to engage in spiritualism and ultimately lost his kingdom because of it (1 Samuel 15:23; 1 Chronicles 10:14). When the Apostles encountered people who had powers of divination from contact with spirits, they cast these spirits out as demons (Acts 16:16-18). Many scriptural references point out a chief reason that Christians should not seek contact nor counsel with spirits, namely, that spirits that are contacted may give unreliable or even deceptive information (1 John 4:1). 

It is highly likely that many so-called encounters with departed loved ones through the use of Ouija boards, mediums, and séances have actually been encounters with demons, who intentionally deliver false information. One common lie that many people receive through supernatural contact is that there is no hell and no final judgment by God. But Hebrews 9:27 expressly states, however, “it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment.” Death is inevitable, and so is judgment. Sin brings about that judgment, and all persons are guilty (Romans 3:23). The only way for any person to escape judgment is to receive an unmerited pardon from God by acknowledgment of sin, acceptance that Jesus died for that sin, and a willingness to submit his life to Christ before his death (John 3:16; Romans 3:24). The Bible clearly reveals that those who die apart from Christ will suffer an eternity in hell (Matthew 25:41). Believing in false teachings derived from “spirit guides” will lead many persons away from the sound doctrine of the Bible, which is the intent of Satan (1 Peter 5:8; 1 Timothy 4:1).  

Those who dabble in activities that seem innocuous actually open the door for contact, harassment and even possession. Many followers have been traumatized and harmed psychologically, if not physically, by contacts that began with séances, dream catchers, Ouija boards, psychic consultations, Reiki healing, and encounters with mediums. For all those who seek the truth, Jesus unequivocally stated in John 14:6, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”  God bless you!!! :):):)
