Right, and that's very encouraging. But there is a crowd (I'm thinking of the people who made zeitgeist) who are spreading a lot of falsehoods about religion. Their section on Jesus and Mary coming from Pagan religions is absolutely false.
I also thought Catholcism was just a big scam, and its easy to make it look like that, but on further analysis a different picture emerges.
Let me mention a few things that made me question my earlier beliefs.
First, the fact that these groups, freemasons, the illuminati, etc, are in fact devil worshipers. Albert Pike wrote about it in Morals and Dogma, he says that after the 30th degree, masons find out that the God they have been referring to is Lucifer.
Doctor Stan Monteith does an excellent job of breaking it down
If you've seen Alex Jones break into Bohemian grove and film all these poerful politicians participating in a mock sacrifice in the middle of the night it further supports this.
Also, the 2 guys that did the Columbine massacre were both part of a satanic cult, one of the kids drew a picture of Satan controlling him while he shot up the school, the night before the shootings. He also told one of the girls to deny Jesus Christ, and when she said no he shot her. None of this was made known in the media, but William h. Kennedy covers it thoroughly in his work. The son of Sam killings also had a satanic element, which was kept from the public.
Why are the Satanic connections of these stories being kept from the public? Because if the public knew about these things they realize that there we are in a spiritual battle.
And finally I'll mention exorcisms. There are tens of thousands of documented cases of people possessed by demons. The symptoms are universally recognized as well as the formula for expelling the demon.
Best selling author Fr. Malachi Martin did an excellent interview on his experience doing exorcisms for those interested.
