Dr. Gary L. Greenwald is a California based pastor who strongly promoted the Satanic Panic movement in the 1980's through a series of videos. Greenwald has made a career in interpreting occult or satanic symbolism in almost everything ever.

Greenwald's primary crusade was against rock music, which he claimed contained large amounts of demoniacally inspired backward masking[1]. He has also railed against action figures (creating a video in conjunction with Phil Phillips), Saturday morning cartoons, Asian martial arts, yoga and statues and jewelry with a perceived occult influence.

Pastor Greenwald still operates an "Eagle's Nest Ministries" in California where he practices faith healing.[2]

  • Marijuana the Heavenly Deception (1983 - book)

  • Prophets and Prophetic Movements (1990 - book) Self described as "This sequel to Prophets and Personal Prophecy is packed with the same kind of cutting instruction that made the first volume a best-seller. Prophetic insights, how-to's, and warnings make this book essential for the Spirit-filled church." You too can tap insight, knowledge, and wisdom that made Harold Camping so successful.
  • Seductions Exposed: The Spiritual Dynamics of Relationships (2003 - book) Greenwald explains various factors that can lead to abusive relationships, codependent relationships and other romantic problems. Those factors include "...cursing yourself through forbidden statues, jewelry, and practices..."[4]
