‘The Occult Experience (1985)’

A 1985 film, The Occult Experience,” introduces viewer to paganism, occultism, witchcraft and  Satanism.  An excerpt follows from You Tube summary: “OCCULTISM has its basis in a religious way of thinking, the roots of which stretch back into antiquity and which may be described as the Western esoteric tradition. Its principal ingredients have been identified as Gnosticism, the Hermetic treatises on alchemy and magic, Neo-Platonism, and the Kabbalah, all originating in the eastern Mediterranean area during the first few centuries AD…I cannot help but feel that Pagans and Wiccans look at the world around them, see the work of God, but then stop short of going further and looking for the Creator, and instead look to the creation itself. This is somewhat like commending a sculpture rather than the one who sculptured it. The Bible also comments on this by stating the following:  ‘…they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator…’ (Romans 1:25).”  Are pagans and witches just another persecuted minority?  Is society afraid of threat to their well-being Satanists represent?
