“The Serpentine Prophecy” at the Seventh-day Adventist Church

WEIRTON — The Weirton Seventh-day Adventist Church will host “The Serpentine Prophecy” over Halloween weekend.

“In this four-part series, we will discuss the fascinating connections between occult and world powers and how they have influenced modern thinking about what happens after death,” noted a statement from the church located at 600 Colliers Way, Weirton.

“We will examine the first lie recorded in the Bible. The serpent (Satan) told Eve that if she ate the fruit, “You will certainly not die” (Genesis 3:4). Have you ever wondered why Satan would consider the mystery of death his greatest chance to lead mankind to doubt the Word of God? Would he still be trying to use that same lie to deceive people today? press release notes.

Beginning October 27 at 7 p.m., Pastor Shawn Boonstra will take attendees “On a journey through history to follow Satan’s path of deception regarding the mystery of death.”

Each evening, a 30 minute video presentation will be followed by a 30 minute Bible study. In addition to Oct. 27, meetings are at 7 p.m. on Oct. 28, and on Oct. 29 parts three and four are at 10:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.
