Questions and Answers About Wicca
An Introduction to Wicca
Wicca is indeed a recognized religion in the United States, and also recognized by God. Though the Wiccan’s claim that they do no harm, and though they claim that they are not worshiping satanic forces, demonic spirits and the like, this section will show how wrong they are. We admit that most of them don’t even realize that they are serving satan and his demonic army, but none the less they are. How?
Let us begin by countering the claims of the 1Wiccan’s themselves. We will take some of the more pertinent quotes from a Wiccan site, and shedding some light on them, one by one. For easier reading and sorting, we will put the Wiccan statements in blue, italic text, and our statements in plain black text.
The Deception: Witchcraft is a spiritual system that fosters the free thought and will of the individual, encourages learning and an understanding of the earth and nature thereby affirming the divinity in all living things.
The Truth: The Wiccans claim that they do no harm, but what they may not realize is that when they state that the Creator of the universe, God, and teach that He exists in ALL LIVING THINGS, they tell a lie, and they denounce and make an abomination unto Him. God is not IN everything, but God CREATED everything, and God, being the supreme and ultimate power of the universe, and Spirit in nature, is EVERYWHERE, but not IN everything.
The Deception: Most importantly however, it teaches responsibility. We accept responsibility for our actions and deeds as clearly a result of the choices we make. We do not blame an exterior entity or being for our shortcomings, weaknesses or mistakes. If we mess up or do something that brings harm to another, we have no one but ourselves to blame and we must face the consequences resulting from those actions. No if’s, and’s or but’s and no whining…
The Truth: While it is true that in life, we must accept responsibility for our actions and deeds, it is NOT something we want to or need to live with and we definitely don’t want to carry our wrong deeds into eternity with us. The Wiccan’s are failing to know or to tell the truth about their Creator, God. God is Holy and in Him there is no blemish. He cannot and will not tolerate the blemish of sin in His presence, and especially not in His Kingdom. God is Holy and we as people are not. We are sinners and the only way to get the sin off of us is to Accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and to confess our sins to Him, repent of them and be forgiven of them.
The Deception: We believe in both a God and also Goddesses. Though we do not necessarily believe that God is the “male” found in the Christian Bible. We believe in divine “fathers” and “mothers”, the sun itself is sometimes thought of as a God. But we do not limit ourselves to believing in one ruling God.
The Truth: Here the wiccans confirm that they themselves do not even know who they are worshiping, or who the divine is. They do not believe in our Creator, though they do believe in the created, which was created by Him. The wiccans acknowledge spiritual forces, (God calls them “familiar spirits”), but they apparently think these “spirits” simply dwell around us with no creator… they are just there. This confusion comes from having no truth. The Word of God tells us how things came to be and God tells us something about Himself in His writing to us. We can also be assured that God is who He says He is and that He is the DIVINE author of the Bible. (See our Proofs of God page to see some of the things that God has done to prove Himself, at: http://www.daveandangel.com/CRN/BibleProofs.html)
The Deception: We acknowledge the cycles of nature, the lunar phases and the seasons to celebrate our spirituality and to worship the divine.
The Truth: We hear “the divine” stated over and over again in Wicca organizations and witchcraft groups. Though they never seem to be able to define the divine! I hope they do not think that they are worshiping God. God is divine. By saying that they worship “the divine”, they seem to say that they worship God. However they cannot worship God until they repent of their sin. For “the divine”, GOD, tells us that witchcraft, magic using, spell casting and the likes of that is an abomination to Him, and God warns that those who do such things SHALL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.
Deut 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD
If you are a Wiccan, a Witch, or thinking about becoming one, you need to get this… God calls it an abomination to Him. It is an insult to the highest degree, something that God considers to be despicable, and it will keep you separated from His mercy and glory in this life, and in eternity.
The Deception: It is a belief system that allows the Witch to work with, not in supplication to deities with the intent of living in harmony and achieving balance with all things.
The Truth: Here we have an admonition of working directly with strange deities. They don’t know who these deities are… they may know the name of them, or they may even know what a deity has revealed to them, but is it truth? God warns us not to have anything to do with familiar spirits. They deceive. They try to take focus off of the true God of the universe. And in so doing, they are able to condemn souls to Hell, which is their purpose all along. When Lucifer (Satan), tried to go up to the Heavenlies and to rise above God, God cast him back down. And God cast 1/3 of the Angel’s of Heaven out with him. These angelic hosts in their rebellion against God, are actively trying to take as many of us with them as possible. They will stop at nothing to try to deceive you. Thus far, satan, the leader of the demonic army has been able to soften his image, and the image of one of his militia branches known as witchcraft.
Lev 19:31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.
The Deception: The spells that we do involve healing, love, harmony, wisdom and creativity. The potions that we stir might be a headache remedy, a cold tonic, or an herbal flea bath for our pets. We strive to gain knowledge of and use the natural remedies placed on this earth by the divine for our benefit instead of using synthetic drugs unless absolutely necessary.
The Truth: There is nothing wrong with using herbs and natural remedies to heal or to bring relief, after all, God (the divine) did give us all that we need and He did intend for us to use what He has provided. But we don’t need spells. God is faithful and loving. For the righteous, all we need to do is to go to God in prayer and beseech Him with our request. God has always been and is still the GREAT HEALER.
The Deception: Wiccans believe that the spirit of the One, Goddess and God exist in all things. In the trees, rain, flowers, the sea, in each other and all of natures creatures. This means that we must treat “all things” of the Earth as aspects of the divine. We attempt to honor and respect life in all its many manifestations both seen and unseen.
The Truth: Again, this is a deception, and without ANY basis of proof. I can imagine how hard satan must be laughing at these whom he has been able to deceive so badly. God is the Creator of the Universe. His presence fills the Heaven’s above and all of the Earth. God is so great that His presence cannot be contained in ANY thing…
1Ki 8:27 But will God indeed dwell on the earth? behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee; how much less this house that I have builded?
The Deception: Wiccans learn from and revere the gift of nature from divine creation by celebrating the cycles of the sun, moon and seasons. We search within ourselves for the cycles that correspond to those of the natural world and try to live in harmony with the movement of this universal energy. Our teachers are the trees, rivers, lakes, meadows, mountains and animals as well as others who have walked this path before us. This belief creates a reverence and respect for the environment, and all life upon the Earth.
The Truth: How sad, what a horrible deception that people seek after things that were created by God, instead of seeking the one who actually did the Creating. This deception not only damns the soul, but it robs these misguided individuals of the joy that they could have by walking day by day with the God of the Universe, the one who truly loves them and wants to have a relationship with them.
The Deception: We also revere the spirits of the elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water which combine to manifest all creation. From these four elements we obtain insight to the rhythms of nature and understand they are also the rhythms of our own lives.
The Truth: Still missing the mark. It is wonderful to appreciate the awesome things in nature which God has given us. It is even wonderful to look at such things in awe sometimes… as we realize the beauty and power and personality of God. But let us not regard familiar spirits in so doing. The familiar spirits did not create the Earth, the air, fire or water… God did. The familiar spirits whom they revere, even they were created BY God.
Lev 19:31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.
The Deception: Because Witches have been persecuted for so many centuries, we believe in religious freedom first! We do not look at our path as the only way to achieve spirituality, but as one path among many to the same end.
Very True! At least they got this one right! But with no understanding. It is another deception. Here is the truth, if anyone wants it…
First, let us thank God that we do still have some religious freedom in our Country… thank you Father for that! Amen! And the Wiccan path is indeed NOT the only path to spirituality. Spirituality is a condition of the soul. We can gain spirituality through many, many means. Even the satanic groups have a measure of their own spirituality. The problem is, that we should not seek after spirituality, for spirituality will fall into place automatically for us, and it will be one of absolute contentment, perfect joy, and peace that surpasses understanding when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and walk day by day with God.
The tragic deception of the underlined portion of the wiccan statement above, is that yes, there are many, many paths which lead to DESTRUCTION. But there is ONLY ONE PATH to God. There is ONLY ONE PATH to be saved. There is ONLY ONE PATH to the Kingdom of Heaven. What is it? Jesus tells us…
Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
What is that way? What is that ONE PATH?
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
The Deception: We believe that anyone who is ment for this path will find it through their own search as the Goddess speaks to each of us in her time and way.
NOBODY is MEANT for this path! God is not willing that anybody be condemned to the Lake of Fire for eternity. God loves you reader, and He wants you to be saved. But He will not force His will upon you. You must be willing to choose His free gift to you. If you listen to this strange goddess, you will be lead into deception and ultimately to destruction.
2Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. Turn or burn 🙂
The Deception: Wiccans practice tolerance and acceptance toward all other religions as long as those faiths do not persecute others or violate the tenant of “Harm None.”
The Truth: Unfortunately, Wiccans are harming multitudes by leading them into deception and destruction of the soul. We are not saying that they are doing this intentionally, for they themselves have been deceived by the great deceiver, and they do not even know themselves.
Deut 11:16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;
17 And then the LORD’S wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the LORD giveth you.
Enlightenment: Can you yet see the danger? Soul’s are lead into deception into witchcraft, which is an abomination unto the Lord, and shall that person die in his/her sin of unbelief and rebellion, what then can be done to save that person? It is then too late.
Who’s fault is it? If we must place the blame we must blame blinded parents who did not care to teach the Word of God and the truth to their children. Some blame must also go to the participant of witchcraft, for they too have made a concious choice. Want to blame satan? We cannot even blame satan for this. God warns us about satans snares all through the Bible. God has done His part. He has warned us. He has made the information available to us. He even went and defeated satan and the principalities of the air and the rulers in high places when He gave His life on the Cross. HOWEVER God has given us the gift of free will. We can choose to be saved or we can choose to be condemned, it is that simple.
Let us now counter more deceptions…
What Witchcraft is not: [As stated on the Wiccan page]
- Witchcraft or Wicca is not a cult. We do not proclaim ourselves to be spokespersons for the divine or try to get others to follow us as their leaders.
No, but you are a spokesman for SOMEONE. If you are not for God you are against Him. There is no middle ground to stand on. You are either lost or you are saved. You either know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, or you are still dead in your trespasses and sins, and still a puppet for satan…
John 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
- We do not worship Satan or consort with Demons. Satan is a Christian creation and they can keep him. We do not need a paranoid creation of supreme evil and eternal damnation to scare us into doing the right thing and helping others. We choose to do the right thing and love our brothers and sisters because it IS the right thing and it feels good to do it. I suppose it is a maturity thing.
Another terrible deception. These people have been completely blinded by satan. They cannot even see him, though they work for him and under his power. Who do you suppose carries out the spells that are cast? Do they think it is God? God denounces it and warns against it. Do they think it is some spirit who is good? Good spirits are Godly spirits and they know and do God’s will. Who is left? Who is carrying out these spells for them?
1Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour
- We do not sacrifice animals or humans because that would violate our basic tenant of “Harm None.” Anyone who does and claims to be a Wiccan or a Witch is lying.
The harm done by Wiccans and other occult groups is far worse than harming simple animals or even humans, for it brings about the death of the soul, which cannot be revoked. It leads people down the paths of final destruction, and hopeless separation from the God who loves them. It also robs and steals the joy that could be theirs, if they would humble themselves and seek the truth, and it denies people of any hope of eternal salvation.
- We have no need to steal or control the life force of another to achieve mystical or supernatural powers. We draw our energy from within, our personal relationship with the divine and nature.
There is no power from within to carry out a magic spell. You must have help to carry it out. It is no surprise that demonic and familiar spirits carry out your bidding for you, whether you realize it or not. The human body is physical. It is restrained to the physical world and the physical laws of nature. Spells are carried out in the spiritual realm. God warns that it is deceptive and evil and calls it an abomination, AND He warns that those who are doing such things shall NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN. If God warns you that this is evil, who then do you think is carrying out your spells for you? Mother Theresa perhaps? Wake from your poisonous sleep and call on the name of the Lord and He will deliver you!
- We do not use the forces of nature or the universe to hex or cast spells on others. Again, “Harm None” is the whole of the law.
Yet you do the worst of all harm when you not only damn your own soul, but the souls of others. It is bad enough that you condemn yourself, but when you become responsible for the destruction of other people’s souls, oh dear reader I thank God I shall not have to answer in your place at the Judgment.
And a final comment:
We get a lot of e-mail from practicing Wiccans, Satanists and other
members of various occults. Many of them tell us… “But I’ve TRIED
religion… it did nothing for me!” Dear reader, if you have tried “religion”,
you have not tried walking with the Son of the Living God, Jesus Christ!
You see, God is not about “religion”. He probably hates it about as
much as we do! Organized religion is but a set of rules, made up by
men and various church leaders… things they think they need to do to
please God. But God does not put these religious systems into place…
we do! God is not interested in religious rituals. What we need to
understand about God is that He is a real being, and He has real
feelings and emotions. God wants to have a relationship with you!
When we accept Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, we are then
considered by God to be justified. Jesus Christ went willingly to the
cross to be put to death by torture to pay YOUR sin debt in full.
By willingly going to that cross and giving up His life, Jesus Christ
has paid for every sin you have ever done, past, present, and future.
Salvation is a FREE GIFT. All the work has been done for you.
There is nothing left to do, but to accept the FREE gift.
The moment you accept Jesus Christ and recognize Him as being
the way to be saved, you become a Child of the KING. You inherit
eternal life in absolute eternity, and it begins now! You don’t have to
do a bunch of religious mumbo jumbo, you don’t have to kiss the toe
of a statue, or bow down to one. You don’t have to go to church like
a good little boy or girl. You don’t have to say any pre-written chants
or prayers! All you have to do is believe on the Lord Jesus Christ!
I can tell you dear reader, from experience… you do not have life
until you are walking with Jesus Christ! I spent my time in darkness.
I lived my first 33 years without Jesus. I have been on both sides of
fence. I have lived in darkness and now I walk in the fullness of joy
and peace that only comes from knowing Jesus Christ personally.
Only God can completely fulfill the emptiness of a lonely soul. If
you seek fulfillment in your life then don’t waste your time seeking
after strange gods, goddesses and spirits who will only deceive you
and keep you from your true purpose in life. Open the door to God
and God will openly let you in!
