Fortune cookies are a traditional end-of-meal treat at most Chinese restaurants in the United States these days, but what exactly is the connection between this treat and the fortune inside? Is there anything wrong with reading these “fortunes?”
SC writes: “My friend and her husband were given some African prayer beads a few years ago. She has been experiencing some problems with her health, insomnia, and some spiritual warfare. For some reason I remembered last night that they had told me & my husband about these prayer beads. I have a very bad feeling about them. What do you think?”
TO asks: “What about those ‘quizzes’ on Facebook that come up with things like who is your guardian angel, what will your year be like, things like that. I play the quizzes just to see the results but I don’t believe in them, even though it would be nice if they were true like meeting the man of my dreams this year, LOL. Should these things be avoided?”

MH asks: “What do you know about Kryon? I know people who are taken in by Lee Carroll and the being he channels that calls himself ‘Kryon of Magnetic Service’. It goes against basic Christian beliefs, and so many pro-kryon videos and websites are out there, but nothing warning or denouncing these channeled messages, the channel, or Kryon. Do you think Carroll is a fake, or is he really channeling an entity? Please look into this and write on it because many people are falling for this nonsense.”
BJ asks: “Have you ever heard of the Order of Exorcists? They have a website where they allow people to submit a form to request an investigation and possible exorcism. They say they’re not affiliated with the Catholic Church but clergy and bishops are working with them because of the demand for exorcisms? Is this possible?”
Due to a threefold increase in demand for exorcisms in Italy alone, and concerns about the skill level of today’s exorcists, the Vatican is planning to hold an international conference next month aimed at training more priests to meet the demand.
The Archdiocese of Los Angeles is being criticized after news broke that the conference center affiliated with Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral is being used for a Filipino native spirituality workshop that one critic says will expose Catholics to the demonic.
