Christians gathered to declare that Jesus is Lord during the first-ever convention of The Satanic Temple.
Satanic Temple Convention
The very first “SatanCon” of The Satanic Temple happened last weekend from February 11 to February 13. It was a 3-day event that was held in Saguaro Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona, the city that rejected the organization’s request to deliver an invocation during a city council meeting. The city had never rejected anyone’s request prior.
The organization filed a lawsuit against the city’s government saying that they were unlawfully discriminated against. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals sustained the city’s decision. The “SatanCon” was dedicated to Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane and Councilwoman Suzanne Klapp.
During the convention that was participated by around 350 people, Arizonian Christians protested against the organization. They gathered outside the event to pray and to read the Scriptures.
“We’re out here to let the Satanists know that there’s no place for evil in Arizona. And we’re here to combat that. And we’re here to say that Jesus is Lord,” one protester told Fox 10.
Bishop Thomas Olmsted of the Diocese of Pheonix urged believers to not participate in any protest. Whatever the situation is, we can wage our battle against evil in the spiritual realm through prayer.
“He continues to invite the faithful to unite in spiritual warfare through prayer, fasting,” he said. “…these are the most effective spiritual weapons against Satan’s futile attempt at sowing division and confusion in our midst.”
The most effective weapon we have against the enemy is our faith in Jesus Christ. Let us wage our spiritual warfare against the schemes of the enemy.
