A Word about Incense


Believers must be careful about bringing incense into their homes. Most people are unaware that much of the incense sold in curio and novelty shops was manufactured by devotees of the Hare Krishna cult. Their wares are dedicated to this demon god of the Hindus and can cause much trouble.

To illustrate, while in high school, both of my teenaged daughters became ill. Prayer at home and at the church failed to bring more than temporary relief. They missed several days of school and we were puzzled by the stubborn sickness which seemed unaffected by prayer. We all went to church on Sunday morning. During the message I mentioned that we should be careful about incense. We might bring into our houses that which had been consecrated to demon spirits and therefore is an abomination to the Lord. I pointed out that Robert Peterson had warned of this in Are Demons for Real?

When we got home, the eldest daughter said nothing but went immediately to her room upstairs. In a moment she returned to the head of the stairs with a small package in her hand. With a strained look on her face she said, “Look at this, Dad.” and pitched it to me. On the package of incense was the picture of the Hindu deity Krishna and on the back was printed the Hare Krishna chant with instructions on how to get in touch with the “infinite.” On the bottom of the label was printed “Made in West Virginia by Devotees of Hare Krishna.”

I crumpled the package of incense sticks in my hand and said, “I rebuke the spirits of Hare Krishna in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” My daughter uttered a short shriek and collapsed straight to the floor–landing in the yoga lotus position! It frightened her because her legs involuntarily buckled under her.

We destroyed the incense and in very short order both girls were well again–no trace of their illness remaining. My daughter had paid no attention to the package when she bought the incense and was not even aware of who made it. Will all incense have this effect? I don’t know, but we decided to live without it. Some things are not worth the trouble they may cause. Be careful what you bring into your house.5
“Neither shalt thou bring an abomination into thine house, lest thou be a cursed thing like it; but thou shalt utterly detest, and thou shall utterly abhor it, for it is a cursed thing.” (Deuteronomy 7:26)
