Beware: SatanCon 2023
Series Crosstalk America
Scripture warns us about Satan in areas such as 1 Peter 5:8 and Ephesians 6:11. He's very much alive, active and full of deceit as the Bible calls him the father of lies.
On a previous Crosstalk we warned listeners about an event known as SatanCon 2023. This event was held April 28th-30th in Boston by the Satanic Temple. They billed it as a sold-out, 3 day event, touting it as the largest satanic gathering in history.
Fox News reported that as the convention got underway, some cheered as two leaders opened the event with a formal ceremony renouncing so-called symbols of oppression. This involved ripping a Bible and the Thin Blue Line flag which represents police.
To sort through this issue, Crosstalk welcomed back Dr. David Brown. Dr. Brown is pastor of First Baptist Church in Oak Creek and has a Masters in Theology and PhD in history, specializing in the history of the English Bible. In addition to his study of the English Bible, he is also president of Logos Communication Consortium which operates LogosResourcePages.org. He is author of the book, The Dark Side of Halloween and also a research paper, Unmasking the Truth About Witches. He's been a resource used by law enforcement on issues pertaining to Satanism and the occult.
SatanCon was the Satanic Temple's annual meeting but they're located in Salem, Massachusetts. Oddly enough, they claim to not believe in or worship a personal Satan, yet they received a religious exemption from the government. In spite of that contradiction, since they're clearly embracing the unfruitful works of darkness (see Ephesians 5:11) they show that they're following the "wisdom" of their father, the one they claim to reject.
