‘Great harlot’ in Revelation is perverting world

Exclusive: Jason & David Benham reveal why ‘demonic spirit doesn’t have ultimate authority’
fear-2826804__480

Since we graduated high school in 1994 (dang, we’re getting old!), we’ve made it a goal to read through the Bible every year. This time of year, we end up in the book of Revelation before renewing our commitment to do it all over again.

Some years, we just blow through the last book, not fully comprehending everything because of all the end-time prophecies. But this year, given the current sociopolitical context of the sexual revolution, the “great harlot” in Revelation 17 jumped off the pages at us.

Check out Verses 1-2: “Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, ‘Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality’” (Revelation 17:1-2).

When I (David) read that, I instantly thought of the radical sexual revolution that is forcing its agenda on the entire world today, in addition to all the recent exposure of sexual misconduct throughout society among the elites.

It seems as if there’s no sphere of culture or civil society that has not been affected by this immoral “spirit of the age.”

Interestingly, Verse 5 of Chapter 17 says, “… The waters which you saw where the harlot sits are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues.” In other words, this spirit of immorality perverts and pollutes the entire earth – there is no place it cannot touch.

Just look around. We now have websites, like “TransKids,” selling prosthetic penises for young “trans” girls to wear between their legs. You can buy them in small, medium or large.

We have drag-queens dressed as demons reading to our children in public libraries (show pic – just get one that is clear):

We have gender unicorns teaching our kids to question their gender and sexuality by asking themselves, “Who do I go to be with?” and “Who do I go to bed as?”

We see Hollywood and political elites across the board being exposed for treating women like pieces of meat. Unfortunately, few people are drawing the connection between Hollywood’s perversion of women on the screen and the reality of it lived out off screen.

We have an ever-changing alphabet soup of sexual-licentiousness, like Canada’s LGGBDTTTIQQAAPP “inclusiveness” training for school children in Ontario, where they ridiculously claim half of the public secretly identifies as lesbian, gay, genderqueer, bisexual, demisexual, transgender, transsexual, twospirit, intersex, queer, questioning, asexual, allies, pansexual and polyamorous.

And these stories don’t even scratch the surface of the amount of pornography being consumed in the world. Statistics show 91,980,225,000 porn videos were viewed in 2016. That’s 12.5 videos per human being on earth!

To break it down even further, in 2016 alone, 4,599,000,000 hours of porn were viewed, which breaks down to 191,625,000 days of porn consumed – in one year!

The “great harlot” in Revelation 17 is perverting and polluting the earth.

And then there’s the unbreakable link between pornography and human trafficking, which is today’s global slavery. Studies reveal that the sale of humans is growing faster than both the drug and weapons industries with the average victim between the ages of 12-14.

Our children are being targeted! This foul spirit hates everything about God and desires to pollute the earth, especially our kids, with her immorality.

It matters not to the two of us that we’ll probably be called “haters” for talking like this, or falsely accused of saying sexually confused people are powered by demons. But the truth of the matter is that we believe Revelation 17 reveals the sexually immoral spirit of our age (the great harlot) that is polluting the earth today.

The good news is that this demonic spirit does not have ultimate authority, as the Lord encourages His people in 18:4, saying, “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not participate in her sins and receive of her plagues.” We can choose to walk uprightly today, through the power of Jesus, despite the demonic influence of immorality in our culture.

And more good news is that this foul spirit does not have the last word, as the Lord shows the great harlot’s final destiny, saying, “For this reason, in one day her plagues will come, pestilence and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for the Lord God who judges her is strong.”

Our God is strong enough to rescue all of those who place their faith in His son, Jesus, from the spirit of the age today. We do not have to fall victim to the foul spirit of the great harlot mentioned in Revelation 17.

Now it’s time to get back to Genesis 1. (Click to Source)

 

YEAR IN REVIEW: Ex-New Age Expert Exposes the Occult Themes Hidden in the Super Bowl

guitar-1015750__480

This article was published February 7th.

Steven Bancarz used to be enamored with the occult. He actively participated in astral projection, Christ-consciousness and more.

But now he’s out to expose the New Age and the presence of the occult in seemingly mundane events, like the Super Bowl.

Sunday night, the internet was abuzz with talk of Lady Gaga’s halftime show. While many people praised the performance, Bancarz saw something malicious beneath the surface.

He posted his analysis on Facebook:

Pentagrams lining the stage at the Superbowl halftime show. Cross-dressing men with makeup dancing on stage. Flames, black clothing, 666 hand signs over the eyes. Typical halftime show.

I have an honest question for non-Christian truthers and political conspiracy activists who are Facebook friends with me and are reading this status. Because I am confused and want to know what your worldview is.

(This may seem strange to some Christians who have not been exposed to this kind of material before).

If we can grant, for the sake of argument, that there is a class of Satanic/occultic elites who pull strings and run the show from the top down (as most I am referring to believe in some sense or another), we can obviously agree there must be something beyond the natural material world of atoms and molecules in order for Satanism, ritual sacrifice and occult practices to even be feasible and existent.

Whether we look at Bohemian Grove cremation ceremonies or blood sacrifice of animals (maybe even fetal/human), even non-Christian truthers acknowledge that such things are spiritual in nature and involve energetic/spiritual exchange between a human and a non-human entity. They aren’t doing these rituals for nobody.

We also agree that they inhabit the astral/etheric realm in some sense or another. There must be spiritual entities inhabiting this realm that are responding to the rituals and practices performed by these elites. We seem to be on the same page here, and most Christians would be surprised to believe that most New Agers believe in demons like these (although they might use a different word).

I could draw from a variety of New Age, political activist and alternative media sources attesting to the reality of these demonic spiritual entities in relation to Illuminati rituals.

I have some questions I would like some truthers and political activists to answer regarding the spiritual nature of Illuminati rituals.

1. In your worldview, where did these “demons” come from? They didn’t create themselves of course. What is their origin?

2. Are these “demons” operating chaotically in the etheric planes, or do they have a kind of organization and intended purpose?

3. Is it possible that there is a hierarchy of these entities, and perhaps, a governing or ruling authority that orchestrates and organizes this plan? Is it possible that there is a leader enforcing control and order over the demons in the spirit?

4. Why is it impossible, or improbable, that such a leader could have the name “Satan”, as dark occultists (Crowley), theosophists (Blavatsky), Jesus and others specifically call him?

5. If both demons and Satan exist, and we must grant their existence in order to believe in the reality of spiritual Satanic/occult rituals happening at a governmental level, how do we conquer them? What are the antidote and weapon of spiritual warfare we are to use against such entities in the world and in our own personal lives?

6. Why can’t Jesus (not “religion” or “the Catholic church”, but Jesus Himself) possibly be the one who has the power against such entities? What evidence or reason is there to believe that it is impossible that Jesus has the victory over these demonic powers? (Click to Source)

MagicResistance: The Rise of Feminist Witchcraft

wicked-witch-of-the-west-640x480

From organizing mass hexes to setting up witch-themed Etsy stores, the feminist movement and witchcraft are becoming increasingly entwined.

In an article this week, feminist and author Laurie Penny documented the “boom in online occultism” and why feminists are so attracted to witchcraft.

“Days after Donald Trump won the U.S. election, videos of women ‘hexing’ Trump went viral around the world, encouraging budding magical practitioners to burn images of the president-elect to bring his works to ruin,” reported Penny on Wednesday. “Meanwhile, an entire explosive industry of witch-paraphernalia is boiling out of the cauldron of digital consumer culture.”

“You can buy your crocheted bat-bunting and your broomstick-decals on Etsy, while a couple of clicks away anonymous web artisans peddle laptop stickers declaring the owner, with more or less accuracy, a daughter of the witches they weren’t able to burn,” she explained. “Commodification is usually a poisoned apple for movements like this, but there’s a proud legacy of repurposing the witch-aesthetic for radical ends.”

The two scenes have become so intertwined that the term “witch” has even started to become synonymous with “feminist,” as online stores such as Witchsy sell feminist witch-themed goods.

Dozens of witch-related products, ranging from pentagram-decorated clothing to “I’m a witch, you’re a bitch” pins, can be found on Witchsy among more typical feminist merchandise, while searching “feminist witch” on Etsy returns over 750 results.

Though a large percentage of “feminist witches” undoubtedly limit themselves to the aesthetic alone, an increase in political mass hexes shows a portion of the movement delves deeper.

Following President Trump’s inauguration, witches, covens, and even A-list celebrities started to hex the president with frequent “spells.”

In July, Lana Del Rey admitted to casting a spell on President Trump, and in October, Vox reported that thousands of members of the “resistance witches” had been casting spells against the president each month.

“On a typical Wednesday, by the light of the waning moon, Kate Doucette joined several thousand strangers on the internet in casting a spell to ‘bind’ Donald Trump,” Vox declared. “Doucette — which is her married name, not her legal name — is one of the ‘resistance witches,’ an at least 13,000-strong umbrella group of internet neo-pagans, Wiccans, solo practitioners who self-identify as ‘hedge witches,’ longtime magical practitioners in various traditions, and committed activists.”

“They’ve come together each month since Trump’s inauguration with one goal: to perform a spell — equal parts quasi-religious ritual and activist performance — to ‘bind’ the president, forming a collective known as the #MagicResistance,” they explained.

So what’s binding feminism and witchcraft?

According to Laurie Penny, “A general sense of powerlessness in a chaotic and competitive society, along with a revived interest in forms of feminism that don’t care who they frighten, may explain the growing appeal of hedge magic as a cultural aesthetic as much as a practice.”

The craze for witchery displays an encouragingly wide understanding that for social change to happen someone has to feel threatened. The paraphernalia of skulls and guts and ravens are merely a uniform that declares intent. I am not a nice, compliant creature, not a princess in training. I am something else. Something darker. There are more like me. Best beware.

Pissing off your overpious relations is as good an excuse as any to dabble in magic—and a good many modern practitioners are spiritual refugees of one sort or another from patriarchal, monotheistic religions as practiced in, for example, large parts of the United States. I’m convinced that part of the reason I first started getting interested in tarot and cartoon spellcraft at a tender age was to annoy my grandmother, who would have made a formidable witch herself had she not got married too young, as so many of her generation did, to some layabout called Jesus Christ who left her to raise six kids with nothing but the promise of salvation.

The feminist witches also see those women persecuted during the 17th century Salem witch trials as their late comrades — tortured and murdered by the patriarchy.

Still, the increase in feminist witchcraft hasn’t led to entirely receptive reactions from others in the witch community.

“The ‘witchblr’ community appropriates non-white cultures (Native American, Yoruba, Hindu, Caribbean, Romani, and so on) and comes up with a lot of shitty excuses for that,” complained one witch to the Verge, who wrote an article about “how witches took over Tumblr in 2017.”

And the community hasn’t been without its controversies; most notably 2015’s “Boneghazi,” where witches fought over the ethics of grave-robbing.

But the trend doesn’t appear to be declining anytime soon, with one follower of the late Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan claiming “the Trump era is an era of an occult renaissance.”

“Occultism keeps becoming more socially relevant in times of economic hardships and political strife,” the user proclaimed.

On the other hand, maybe witchcraft is just an excuse for feminists to pretend to be Hogwarts students from their beloved Harry Potter series. (Click to Source)

Charismatics Using ‘Christian Ouija Board’ to Communicate with Angels

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Again, you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘Whoever of the children of Israel, or of the strangers who dwell in Israel, who gives any of his descendants to Molech, he shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones. I will set My face against that man, and will cut him off from his people, because he has given some of his descendants to Molech, to defile My sanctuary and profane My holy name. And if the people of the land should in any way hide their eyes from the man, when he gives some of his descendants to Molech, and they do not kill him, then I will set My face against that man and against his family; and I will cut him off from his people, and all who prostitute themselves with him to commit harlotry with Molech.

6 ‘And the person who turns to mediums and familiar spirits, to prostitute himself with them, I will set My face against that person and cut him off from his people. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am the Lord your God. And you shall keep My statutes, and perform them: I am the Lord who sanctifies you.

‘For everyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death. He has cursed his father or his mother. His blood shall be upon him.

10 ‘The man who commits adultery with another man’s wife, he who commits adultery with his neighbor’s wife, the adulterer and the adulteress, shall surely be put to death. 11 The man who lies with his father’s wife has uncovered his father’s nakedness; both of them shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. 12 If a man lies with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death. They have committed perversion. Their blood shall be upon them. 13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall beupon them. 14 If a man marries a woman and her mother, it iswickedness. They shall be burned with fire, both he and they, that there may be no wickedness among you. 15 If a man mates with an animal, he shall surely be put to death, and you shall kill the animal. 16 If a woman approaches any animal and mates with it, you shall kill the woman and the animal. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood is upon them.

17 ‘If a man takes his sister, his father’s daughter or his mother’s daughter, and sees her nakedness and she sees his nakedness, it is a wicked thing. And they shall be cut off in the sight of their people. He has uncovered his sister’s nakedness. He shall bear his guilt. 18 If a man lies with a woman during her sickness and uncovers her nakedness, he has exposed her flow, and she has uncovered the flow of her blood. Both of them shall be cut off from their people.

19 ‘You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother’s sister nor of your father’s sister, for that would uncover his near of kin. They shall bear their guilt. 20 If a man lies with his uncle’s wife, he has uncovered his uncle’s nakedness. They shall bear their sin; they shall die childless. 21 If a man takes his brother’s wife, it is an unclean thing. He has uncovered his brother’s nakedness. They shall be childless.

22 ‘You shall therefore keep all My statutes and all My judgments, and perform them, that the land where I am bringing you to dwell may not vomit you out. 23 And you shall not walk in the statutes of the nation which I am casting out before you; for they commit all these things, and therefore I abhor them. 24 But I have said to you, “You shall inherit their land, and I will give it to you to possess, a land flowing with milk and honey.” I am the Lord your God, who has separated you from the peoples. 25 You shall therefore distinguish between clean animals and unclean, between unclean birds and clean, and you shall not make yourselves abominable by beast or by bird, or by any kind of living thing that creeps on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. 26 And you shall be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine.

27 ‘A man or a woman who is a medium, or who has familiar spirits, shall surely be put to death; they shall stone them with stones. Their blood shall be upon them.’” (Leviticus 20:1-27  New King James Version (NKJV) Scripture taken from the New King James Version®. Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson. Used by permission.

“For you have trusted in your wickedness; You have said, ‘No one sees me’;
Your wisdom and your knowledge have warped you; And you have said in your heart,
‘I am, and there is no one else besides me.’
11 Therefore evil shall come upon you; You shall not know from where it arises.
And trouble shall fall upon you; You will not be able to put it off.
And desolation shall come upon you suddenly, Which you shall not know.

12 “Stand now with your enchantments And the multitude of your sorceries,
In which you have labored from your youth, Perhaps you will be able to profit,
Perhaps you will prevail.
13 You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels; Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, And the monthly prognosticators
Stand up and save you,  From what shall come upon you.
14 Behold, they shall be as stubble, The fire shall burn them;
They shall not deliver themselves, From the power of the flame;
It shall not be a coal to be warmed by, Nor a fire to sit before!
15 Thus shall they be to you With whom you have labored,
Your merchants from your youth; They shall wander each one to his quarter.
No one shall save you. (Isaiah 47:10-15 New King James Version (NKJV) Scripture taken from the New King James Version®. Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson. Used by permission. All rights reserved.)

 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. (Galatians 5:16-21 New King James Version (NKJV) Scripture taken from the New King James Version®. Copyright © 1982 by Thomas Nelson. Used by permission. All rights reserved.)

Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”

Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” (Revelation 21:1-8 New King James Version (NKJV) Scripture taken from the New King James Version®.

A week ago, we reported that charismatics are using “Christian tarot cards.” Christalignment, a ‘ministry’ run by Jen Hodge, had put together a “destiny card” schtick to help “reach people” in the New Age movement. You can read about that here, but they have since pulled down their videos. We also reported Hodge’s association with Bethel Church, which at first repudiated the tarot card ministry but upon finding out that Bethel members were involved with it, then deleted their rebuke and affirmed the practice. Steve Kozar at Pirate Christian Radio posted a satire piece about “The Bethel Board,” a Ouija Board-type device by which charismatics can summon the demonic.

While Kozar’s piece was satire, it appears that truth is stranger than fiction. Charismatics actually are using ‘Christian Ouija Boards,’ but not just as an evangelism technique. They are using them to communicate with ‘angels.’

Called “The Angels Talk: The Message Board that Connects You to Your Angels,” the device is used to communicate with spirits.

If it looks like a Ouija Board to you, that’s because that’s exactly what it is. Consider a Ouija Board below…

The only difference is, the Ouija Board is less subtle. The Angel’s Message Board is identically designed to help people communicate with (non-fallen) angels.

One five star review on Amazon, where it can be purchased (although only used, because it’s currently not in production), said the following:

I have been on a path of spiritual enlightenment for 1 year now. I have two other friends who have shared this path with me. We share books, experiences, thoughts and feelings, but when one of us (not me) bought this book and “game” board to communicate with our higher-level guides or “guardian angels,” it became a turning point in my journey. I didn’t think I was “advanced enough” or “spiritual enough” to make this thing work. I learned, in about 2 minutes, that doubting myself was doubting God and his angels! In one evening, I met my higher guide, felt unconditional love, and knew I wasn’t alone and never had been. I was convinced, beyond all reason, of the presence of my angel. To this date, I call him “J” as we haven’t yet tuned our energies to really work out the spelling of the name… I asked him if “J” would be okay, and he said, “yes.” He has answered to “J” ever since! One evening, before I was able to acquire an “angel board” of my own, I tried an Ouija Board. It took several attempts before J was able to answer me, but when he did, I asked if he prefered the angel board and he responded “yes.” We had a very difficult, short conversation that night. The angel board is a MUST for all those who seek a closer relationship with their guardian angel, and who have not had much practice in meditation and raising their energies to a compatible level with the light bodies waiting to guide us!

A four star review said…

I bought my Angels Talk 8 months ago. I purposely waited to give my review. I have had the best 8 months of my life. I have never been so at peace with myself. My friends and family have said that I am more patient and loving. I want everyone to know that Angels are very real. They are just waiting for us to communicate with them. They want to talk to us as much as we want to talk to them. The Angels have important and loving messages to give us and if we want, lessons to be learned. They are very funny too! In a previous review, I was very sad to see a review by a person from Rome. I think he missed a very important part of what the Angels Talk is all about. He is absolutely right when he said people need to be careful of Ouiji type boards. He was right when he said people sometimes don’t realize what they’re getting themselves into. What he missed was that you don’t need a Ouiji board to call spirits or worse, demons. Our minds are sooo powerful, all we have to do is want it. The Angels Talk is to communicate with Angels and nothing else. You could bring anything out if you chose to. “Be careful what you ask for, you may get it.” This is very true. We begin our session with a prayer, “We call on the Angels of God from the throne of grace to be with us as we play, and only Angels of God.” The Angels will protect you and will not allow anything negative to come thru. We have only had loving, wonderful sessions and I have soo much better understanding of my souls purpose in this lifetime. EVERY message from the Angels has had a positive effect, even if it wasn’t apparent at the time. I so hope you give it a chance. If you do, your life will be changed forever and you will love it!

Another five star review said…

I bought “The Angels Talk” nearly three years ago, after I had a premonition I could not explain. I have been able to contact my Angels and a few others’ as well. Every thing they told me has come true, in fact, they answered by telling me the answers to thoughts my friends and family had with out my knowing. It wasn’t until I told them their answer that they admitted to thinking or “praying” the original questions.. this blew me away.
If you have any doubts that the angels MAY be fallen ones, or that there will be negative forces on it.. there will be. You must allow for only positive and realize that evil and fear is the opposite of love and can’t co-exist anywhere. Keep your expectations only on positive, loving angels and that is what you will receive. I highly reccommend “The Angels Talk” and would love to talk to someone else who has experienced similar experiences with it.

Another five star review said…

My cousins friend has this book/game and it is so awesome. We spoken with her angel who is so honest and true. I believe in her angel truely. After playing that game where we really connected with her angel, I had so much hope and confidence. I truely believe in angels and I hope to one day get in touch with my angel and hopefully one day in heaven meet mine and her angel.

The Angel Message Board was created by Kaye Sturgis, who just so happens to be a tarot card psychic. Sturgis has also made tarot cards designed for teenage girls to help them make “wise relationship choices.” (Click to Source)

Ohio shocker: 793 million opioid drug doses prescribed in one year

Ohio shocker: 793 million opioid drug doses prescribed in one year

Here’s why zombies are real

By Jon Rappoport

The state government of Ohio has filed a lawsuit against five drug companies: Teva, Allergen, Johnson & Johnson, Purdue, and Endo.

The suit accuses these companies of unlawful marketing practices that have led to Ohio’s opioid addiction “problem.”

Here’s the big one: the suit states that, in 2012, a staggering 793 million doses of opioid drugs were prescribed to Ohio citizens. That translates to an average of 68 pills for each person in Ohio.

The suit accuses the drug makers of conspiring to influence opinion leaders and various medical groups. This marketing blitz resulted in deceptive treatment guidelines, false information delivered at medical conferences, and misleading “science” articles—all designed to minimize the dire effects of opioids.

Well, yes, these painkillers (e.g., OxyContin) do kill pain. In the process, they also creation addiction and turn minds to mush.

Apparently, Ohio is pretty much in a collective trance state. We’re talking Zombification. 793 million opioid doses in one year.

Don’t forget the doctors who prescribe the drugs. As a group, they can’t care about their patients’ state of mind. Just load people up to the eyeballs with chemical pacification.

If you think this over-prescription epidemic corresponds to the actual amount of physical pain Ohio citizens are experiencing, think again. The drugs are obviously being handed out for other reasons: to sustain and feed addiction; to “treat depression”; to “manage dissatisfaction with life.” In other words, drug companies are promoting an ongoing profit bonanza for themselves. The human consequences don’t matter. (Click to Article)

Choice of Ending Addiction – 12 Steps or Jesus Christ

Just a question to those who would like to get off drugs & alcohol permanently and turn back from Addiction. Which choice is the best, 12 Steps or the Word of God? Compare the two below.

What does the hopeless 12 Steps teaches:

“Admit that you are powerless” over your problem, and that your life has become “unmanageable”.
“Come to believe” that only “A Power greater than yourself” (God) can save you — “restore you to sanity.”
Surrender your will and your life to the control of the group’s old-timers and ‘God’ as you misunderstand Him.
Perform a “searching and fearless moral inventory” to find and list all of your “defects of character” and “moral shortcomings”, and then confess the “exact nature of your wrongs” to your sponsor and to God.
Ask God to perform soul surgery on you, and fix you, by removing all of your “defects of character” and “moral shortcomings”.
Make amends to all whom you have harmed.
Repeat the above steps endlessly, for the rest of your life, and always promptly admit when you are wrong.
“Seek, through prayer and meditation, to make conscious contact with God.” That is, conduct a séance where you sit quietly and listen for the Voice of God to talk to you and dictate your work orders to you. Pray for the power to carry out those orders. Go do whatever the voices in your head tell you to do. (That is not a joke.)
Claim that you have gotten a “spiritual experience” or a “spiritual awakening” from doing the previous eleven steps. “Carry the message” to anyone else who will listen — make religious converts out of everyone else that you can — and somehow practice the above so-called “principles” in all of your affairs.

This is what the 12 Step Program is based on…  A higher power that is helpless to help you.

But if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say, “We don’t have any sin,” we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.  1John 1:7-10

Jesus stooped down and started writing on the ground with His finger. When they persisted in questioning Him, He stood up and said to them, “The one without sin among you should be the first to throw a stone at her. ”Then He stooped down again and continued writing on the ground. When they heard this, they left one by one, starting with the older men. Only He was left, with the woman in the center. When Jesus stood up, He said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” “No one, Lord,” she answered. “Neither do I condemn you,” said Jesus. “Go, and from now on do not sin anymore.”  Then Jesus spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.”  John 8:6-12

He will again have compassion on us; He will vanquish our iniquities. You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.
Micah 7:19

Seeing their faith, Jesus told the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven.” But some of the scribes were sitting there, thinking to themselves: “Why does He speak like this? He’s blaspheming! Who can forgive sins but God alone?” Right away Jesus understood in His spirit that they were thinking like this within themselves and said to them, “Why are you thinking these things in your hearts? Which is easier: to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up, pick up your mat, and walk’? But so you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins,” He told the paralytic, “I tell you: get up, pick up your mat, and go home.”  Mark 2:5-11

So He got into a boat, crossed over, and came to His own town. Just then some men brought to Him a paralytic lying on a mat. Seeing their faith, Jesus told the paralytic, “Have courage, son, your sins are forgiven.” At this, some of the scribes said among themselves, “He’s blaspheming!” But perceiving their thoughts, Jesus said, “Why are you thinking evil things in your hearts? For which is easier: to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Get up and walk’? But so you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”—then He told the paralytic, “Get up, pick up your mat, and go home.” And he got up and went home. When the crowds saw this, they were awestruck and gave glory to God who had given such authority to men.
Matthew 9:1-8

With Jesus Christ There Is Hope!
