DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - Church Militant recently sat down with ex-satanic high wizard Zachary King to get insight into the rise of the occult in society. King had risen to the highest levels of satanism before he rejected his former life and turned to the Catholic faith.
"When I was a satanist one of my jobs was to get rock stars or celebrities to sell their soul," King told ChurchMilitant.com. "The way you do that is you have a meeting with somebody and you ask them what are they willing to do to get famous?"
"Satan doesn't want the person that draws the line in the sand," he continued. "He wants the person that's willing to jump in the mud and be [dragged] through it. And if you're willing to do that, then he will skip all the way to Hell with you."
King was introduced to satanism by playing seemingly innocent children's games. In elementary school, he would play the game "Bloody Mary," which involves repeating the phrase while looking in the mirror in the hopes of conjuring a spirit. When a face appeared next to him, he thought it was "the coolest thing ever."
King also played Dungeons and Dragons. "Doing fake magic, I wondered, 'Could magic really work?'" he said. "So I did a magic spell in real life." After conducting a series of spells, he realized magick, a.k.a. satanic magick, is real. King was eventually introduced to a satanic coven, where he signed a blood contract and "sold his soul" to the devil.
King was thrust into the highest levels of satanism, where he performed magick spells for politicians, musicians and other powerful leaders who wanted the help of Satan to achieve earthly success.
"We do have musicians that are possessed," he told Church Militant.
Valter Cascioli, a psychologist and scientific consultant to the International Association of Exorcists, a Vatican-endorsed group, told the Italian newspaper La Stampa last week that the exorcist shortage is a "pastoral emergency." We asked King what he thought about this comment.
"We do have dioceses around the world and in the United States that have exorcists that don't believe in the devil, that don't believe in Hell," he commented. "And they believe that everybody that has a problem is really schizophrenic, and that's a terrible thing to have in your diocese. I can't even express how horrible that is."
King continued, "We have a shortage of good priests and we have a shortage of good bishops."
We also asked him to comment on an Oregon public school district that gave approval to a satanic after-school group. The group claims to be purely political, but King says, "Obviously, they're moving Satan's agenda forward."
King is possibly the only satanic high wizard to step away from satanism and join Catholicism. His journey back to the Catholic Church started when a woman handed him a Miraculous Medal. As King clenched the medal, he was shown a vision of Our Lady urging him to repent and take up the fight against abortion. King has since been speaking out against abortion, testifying that the murder of children in the womb is very often used as satanic sacrifice.
"I don't see how anybody can think abortion is fine with God," he said. "You cannot be Catholic and pro-death. They're not the same. They're not compatible."
