SANTA FE, N.M. — Reports of demonic possession and exorcisms have been going on for centuries in New Mexico, and the archbishop of Santa Fe said he has proof the devil exists in the state.
People from all over the state flocked to the Four Corners Friday to pay their respects to a statue of a young Jesus they believe cries real tears.
About 30 dancers entertained the crowd of people as they prayed to a statue. The owner said it has cried ten times in the past three months.
Maria Garcia was a skeptic until she saw it herself.
“Of course I didn’t believe him so when the statue cried I came over here and witnessed the statue cry. It cries from the left eye,” said Garcia.
The owner of the statue said he bought it in Chimayo.
He said churches have offered him money for it but he has no interest in selling it.
Chimayo, N.M. (KRQE) – The pilgrimage to El Santuário de Chimayó is an important trek for thousands every year on Good Friday.

The church does not charge for the holy dirt, but does ask for a donation.
You can donate and have holy dirt mailed directly to your house by going to El Santuário de Chimayó website.

It has been over 10 years since I was at the space museum, but when I was there I notice a strange thing that has stuck in my mind ever since. In one of the display cases was a crystal pyramid. It was just sitting there and seemingly had nothing to do with what was being displayed, no tag describing why it was there, just sitting there as decoration or for some unknown reason.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I personally don’t understand why religious people have a hard time considering that God would create life in more than one place, planet or whatever.
ROSWELL, New Mexico, May 12 /Christian Newswire/ — Alien Resistance, a Christian counter-cult outreach ministry, will hold an all-Christian-speaker Symposium on aliens during the annual Roswell UFO Festival July 3-5th, 2009. The 11 participants include 4 PhDs, 2 doctorates of ministry, 2 pastors, 2 ordained ministers, and several pastoral counselors, with 12 books written between them on the UFO/Alien topic. The Symposium will educate on the UFO/alien topic from a Biblical Christian perspective, with emphasis on counter-cult evangelism, creationism, and spiritual warfare. The event is free for the public to attend, and will be held at the Best Western Sally Port Inn Ballroom. Tens of thousands of people interested in the UFO/Alien topic are expected to attend the Roswell UFO/Alien Festival this year.
Organizers assert that, “From a Biblical Christian perspective it becomes clear that ‘aliens’ are actually the evil spirits of the Bible. This idea is backed up experientially with the evidence of numerous testimonies of ‘abductees’, which show that ‘alien abduction’ experiences stop in the name and authority of Jesus Christ. Also the sinful behaviors of the ‘aliens’ behind abductions, the false gospels and new age messages they proclaim, and their supernatural powers so very reminiscent of those described in the Bible as being had by angels, all adds up to make clear that ‘aliens’ are in fact the evil spirits of the Bible.”
Participants will include: William Alnor Ph.D., author of “UFOs in the New Age” and “UFO Cults in the New Millennium”; Gary Bates, from Creation Ministries International Australia, author of “Alien Intrusion: UFOs and the Evolution Connection”; Mike Bennett Ph.D., demonology researcher and host of “FutureQuake” Nashville-based Christian FM talk radio program; Pastor Russ Dizdar, Cult and Occult survivors specialist and deliverance minister; Joe Jordan O.M., alien abduction researcher and deliverance minister; Michael S. Heiser Ph.D., doctor in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Languages and author of “The Facade”; Guy Malone, author of “UFO Phenomena and the Bible”; Mrs. Malone, author of “A Modern Guide to Demons and Fallen Angels”; L.A. Marzulli D.Min., author of “Politics, Prophecy, and the Supernatural”; Pastor Chris Ward D.Min., deliverance minister and author of “Case Files of an Internet Exorcist”; and Stephen Yulish Ph.D., author of “The Real Story of UFOs.”
