Sacrifices To Other God Acceptable
I am confused about the Santeria Religion. Is it bad? Someone I love is getting involved and I am concerned for him. He says it is Christian -- what about sacrifices and other gods? Please help me.

God plainly says have no other gods before him. this could be anything you put before God. Satan is the auther of confusion. Seek God's face for wisdom on what to do. Only God can change him but your friend must be willing.

This is an extract of something on a website about this religion.
I think that is enough to show you that it is very wrong.
"It is its Catholic content which gives Santeria its peculiar flavor. The combination results in a Santero being a devout Roman Catholic at the same time he or she is sacrificing a rooster to a cement image of Elegua enthroned behind the front door"
There is a lot more

A large number of oranizations, such as Santeria, are part of the New Age type of movement. They "throw in enough Christian joggin" to sound impressive, but they are not Christian. If someone thinks they are, they better find out what a Christian is.

The santeria religion started in the New World by the slaves from Africa. It is comparative to the Celtic religion in that it worships energy. It was mixed with Catholicism to hide it, but it is not Christian. The only thing that is wrong with the religion is that it is mixed with Catholicism which is adultery.

Patty, he is wrong, it is not Christian. Pray for him (and with him if he'll allow that)and ask that the Holy Spirit will show him his error before he gets involved.

All religion is vain. Jesus Christ is the only way, the truth, and the life, and noone can come to the Father except by Jesus.

Dear Patty, Pray for your friend. He is geting into something really bad. Pray that he will seek counsel from a strong Christian man, someone he respects and will listen to. He's definitely being lied to by Satan. Santeria religion is DEFINITELY not Christian. God Bless you, Gay
