The Dangers of Wicca

I offer this excerpt from a wonderful article by Kimberly McRae entitled “The Dangers of Wicca” and the entire article is available at http://www.armorofgodbooks.com/armorofgod/?p=358. I was saddened recently by the discovery that someone I know is involved in this “religion” and also claims to be a Christian at the same time. This is a deception and a lie. You cannot be both a Christian and a Wiccan!

Those involved in Wicca and other aspects of the occult need the truth of the Gospel, our love, compassion and prayers. A the same time, I believe a firm and scripturally secure stance must be taken to rebuke this evil. PARENTS…WARNING! Is your child becoming interested in wicca, witchcraft and new age mysticism?

Wicca, also known as witchcraft, is an occult religion in which multiple gods are worshipped. It can be practiced alone, as a solitary practitioner, or in a coven. Many of you may have heard of or seen covens glamorized on television or movies. A coven is a group of people who practice Wicca together.

Most Wiccans take on the Celtic god and goddess, Diana and Pan, to worship. While others, take gods from other ancient cultures. I worshipped the gods, Isis and Osiris, from Egyptian times. This drew me to Aleister Crowley’s works as he worshipped the same false gods. The goddess is always seen as more revered than the god because she brings life to the god. I will discuss the importance of sexuality to Wiccans later in this article. Regardless of the form that the worship of these deities takes there are always two things that remain the same. The goddess is the mother of all life and relates to the moon. The god relates to the sun and represents nature.

Wiccans also believe in the elements of Air, Fire, Water, Earth and Spirit. These elements are called on frequently during magical divination and rituals. The symbol of a pentagram, five-pointed star within a circle, relates to these elements. Each point of the star represents one element.

Spirit communication and guides are often called on to aid the Wiccan during rituals, meditation, or divination. Many practitioners use objects such as crystals, tarot cards, or Ouija boards to communicate with what they believe to be spirits.

The Bible clearly tells us that witchcraft is an abomination to the Lord in Deuteronomy.

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, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Deuteronomy 18: 10 – 12

God’s Word goes on further to tell us that the lies and deceptions of Wicca, occult practices, divination, and other pagan practices are not from Him.

Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart. Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.

Jeremiah 14: 14 – 15

Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon: For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; and that I should drive you out, and ye should perish.

Jeremiah 27: 9 – 10

For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Let not your prophets and your diviners, that be in the midst of you, deceive you, neither hearken to your dreams which ye cause to be dreamed. For they prophesy falsely unto you in my name: I have not sent them, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 29: 8 – 9

In God’s eyes witchcraft is seen as rebellion or disobedience to Him.

For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

1 Samuel 15:23
