my friend and neighbor worship the death cuz when i went to his house i saw like a little statue of the death and with candles and the book of shadows next to it and other stuff too and a lottery ticket my friend said they used it for protection and luck and other stuff should i keep away from him? i believe in god and he said he believes in both
i should have added im 15 and only asked this question to those who believed in God and in spanish they call that thing Santa Muerte is very popular with drug dealers they pray to it to help them not get caught
So, what does death look like to him? And what does the Book of Shadows have to do with it? I think you had better double check on what he truly believes, then get back to us.
yes i think you should stay away from him. he is obviously doing things that arent from God, and arent Christlike. pray for him. also pray for yourself and your family that God will protect you from that.
There is no such thing as worshipping “both.” No one can have “two” masters. It is either Jesus Christ or the Devil (Satan). Exodus 20:3 says, “Thou shalt have NO OTHER GODS before me.?
God says for His people, His children, to stay away from things that are evil things. 2 Chronicles 33:6b “also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.”
Sincerely in Christ Jesus,
I think perhaps you need to find “new” friends who worship the “living” God and can be an encouragement to you.
well isn’t there a Biblical angel of death? Abaddon or something like that. Sounds kinda strange, I never heard of anyone worshipping “death” before along with God? there are gods of the dead within Pagan religions but I don’t think this is what you mean. They could be new agers I dunno? If they’re good friends of yours maybe just try to cope with it, if they’re not doing anything wrong..
Maybe his family practices Santeria along with the Catholic saints? Voudon practice noted sometimes to be parallel to Catholic or occasionally Baptist churches- Baron Samedi given some honors.
To those that want you to avoid a person because of their religion or beliefs are terrible Christians for that. If you are strong in your faith it shouldn’t be a problem. If you are unsure in your religion even a little bit, it gives you the opportunity to explore.
But to scorn and turn away from a person because they aren’t like you is incredibly selfish, narrow minded and rude. Please do not be that person.
Ask him about it, get more information about it, maybe their worshiping is really more of a Celebration of death, a soul being released.
DO NOT turn into the hyper religious narrow minded Nits that exist out there!!! Being open minded will get you a lot farther in life!
Hope this helps!
How can he believe in both?
Stay away for ur own sake!
are you talking about the Devil?
If so him believing in the Devil is just as ridiculous as your belief in a God, so I wouldn’t look down on him
People don’t worship death.Well, not the way you’re thinking.
It sounds like they just have a different religion than you, or are superstitious.
You should go lock yourself in your room immediately and never come out.
