We might hear news over expansion of different churches around the globe, but this one has abuzz online.
A Church intended to worship Lucifer, the fallen angel, was opened in Colombia.
A temple dedicated to the fallen angel, Lucifer, has just officially opened its doors to public worshippers in Montenegro, Colombia, founded by a self-proclaimed sorcerer known as Victor Damián Rozo.
Colombia, a country well known for its strong religious base of Catholicism and Christianity has allowed the legal status of the devil worshipping church under Colombian law despite much criticism, cited the Latin Correspondent report.
According to Rozo, whose real name is Héctor Londoño Villegas,‘The Luciferian Seeds Of Light Temple,’ which cost $200,000 to build has been sponsored by multiple groups abroad.
Rozo revealed that he doesn’t know specifically where the money comes from.
“I don’t ask if they (the contributors) are from the Sinaloa cartel or the Zetas,” he said to a Colombian magazine.
“A lot of people contact me and it’s very hard to know if they are or not,” he added.
Governor of Quindío Carlos Eduardo Osorio and the archbishop of nearby Armenia, Pablo Emiro Salas, have spoken out that the cult should be made aware that Satanism is prohibited under the country’s constitution.
Meanwhile, Rozo defended his church saying that the object of worship, Lucifer, is not Satan but instead an angel that has been expelled from heaven.
Based on a local Columbian publication, Crónica del Quindío slams Rozo’s non-satanic claim by revealing the use of satanic symbols, such as the Sigil of Baphomet and the inverted cross, disproving Rozo’s assertion that the cult is not satanic in nature.
The self-proclaimed priest has stated that his temple, “is not open to beggars but to the most powerful people in the country.”
Instead, there are promises of wealth and sex to his devotees despite claiming that any sacrifices and acts of lust are prohibited in the temple.
Asking about the next action of the newly-founded church, Rozo said he is planning to host a convention for worshippers of Beelzebub within the next few months.
