Into the World of Witchcraft

Through the centuries witchcraft has taken an appealing transformation, it has drawn many to practice the art or seek out someone who does. It is classified as a pagan religion known as Wicca, wherein its followers worship nature which embody their god or goddess. Wiccans channel through meditation and practice the casting of spells. Their symbol is a pentacle or pentagram which is a five-pointed star, representing the five elements earth, water, air, fire and spirit

Under the New Age movement, individuals have risen up calling themselves psychics, who have extrasensory perception giving them the ability to sense unknown information. Furthermore, psychic mediums communicate with spirit guides and the dead. In all, they dispute the claim of Satan worship and state that their practice of ‘magick’ is based upon good.

It does not matter which form witchcraft may take or the varied use of it within different religious groups. It can be called white magic, black magic, vodou/voodoo, obeah or the occult, God hates the practice declaring it as an abomination and a sin of the flesh. We can lose or connection with the true God if we choose to follow this path.

There is a popular quote spoken amongst witches. “If you take the Christian Bible and put it out in the wind and the rain, soon the paper on which the words are printed will disintegrate and the words will be gone. Our bible IS the wind and the rain.” [Anonymous Native American woman]

Well that is true as the bible is a book made up of paper, but the message it contains has survived the rigour of time, and will live on in every Christian that walks on this planet now and forever. The Word as a template is burnt upon our hearts and can never be erased, broken or lost. We do not need to study the wind and the rain, the Most High, the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last created this earth and the elements, and HE alone controls everything around us. That is our pentacle.

Deut 18:10-12
Gal 5:19-21
