He was standing on Voodoo grounds in Haiti and did not say anything to me as I snapped the photo, so I took the picture and walked away. Does he practice VooDoo? I do not know as I do not speak French Creole.
Voodoo grounds outnumber viable church grounds by a huge percentage in Haiti. Voodoo is the religion of the majority in Haiti and it is taken very seriously.
Did you know that some witchdoctors in Haiti have what believers call a black magic voodoo death spell? It supposedly is the most lethal of spells and leaves the person who received the spell dead.
Voodoo derived from West Africa. The original West African Voodoo religion was called. This religion honors a god with a dual nature, both masculine and feminine. It also pays honor in a form of worship to so called spirits in rocks, rivers, trees, and more. Voodoo can also include animal sacrifices.
What is odd is that Voodoo in Haiti is blended with West African practices as well as aspects of Roman Catholicism. Of course, the Bible condemns the practice of Voodoo in a very strong manner, so how can the two intersect?
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 states, “There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer 11 or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord.”
