For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 2 Timothy 4:3-4
2 Corinthians 11:14 ...Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
People are confused. The visible church is generally fallen away from the holy scriptures (the Bible) and people are not hearing the truth. Instead, they are filled up with television, schooling, books, movies, music, newspapers, and lies from various sources. People are listening to all kinds of lies. Some are becoming witches in Wicca witchcraft. Some of them even say that they are Christian witches which is an utter impossibility. They are deceived. These end times are times of deception.Matthew 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, TAKE HEED THAT NO MAN DECEIVE YOU.
Matthew 24:11 And MANY FALSE PROPHETS shall rise, and SHALL DECEIVE MANY.
Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, *IF* it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. [It is not possible to deceive God's people because they read and believe the Bible. No matter what kind of great signs and wonders we see, we will not be deceived BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THE BIBLE AND, PRAISE THE LORD, WE HAVE ALREADY BEEN WARNED!]
2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. [IS THERE NOT TREMENDOUS EVIL IN THE EARTH TODAY? IS IT NOT GETTING WORSE AND WORSE? PEOPLE ARE DECEIVING AND BEING DECEIVED!]
2 John 1:7 For MANY DECEIVERS ARE ENTERED INTO THE WORLD, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
The spirits that Wiccans worship are deceiving them--they are actually Satan and his angels--Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and SATAN, which DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD: HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS were cast out with him.
Satan is masquerading as an angel of light in order to deceive Wiccans and his agents, people, are transformed as ministers of righteousness and people are listening to them.2 Corinthians 11:14 ...SATAN HIMSELF IS TRANSFORMED INTO AN ANGEL OF LIGHT. [A devil or a man can tell you a lie with a smile on his face and/or a luminescence surrounding him!]
2 Corinthians 11:15 THEREFORE IT IS NO GREAT THING IF HIS MINISTERS ALSO BE TRANSFORMED AS THE MINISTERS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS; whose end shall be according to their works. [Maybe you get a warm, cozy feeling from being around certain persons, but if they are not speaking according to the Bible, which is God's word, it is because there is no light in them (Isaiah 8:20). Wiccans need to REPENT and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ and his holy word! Time is running out!]
Some Wiccans say that they are "Christian" witches. This is an utter impossibility. The Bible condemns witchcraft--Galatians 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
Galatians 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
Galatians 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Those that do not inherit the kingdom of God will go to hell and the lake of fire (the devil will not be ruling in the lake of fire--he will be tormented day and night for ever and ever). Hell is real notwithstanding the fact that some deny it exists.
Wiccans may believe that their powers are for good and that the spirits that they worship are good, but those spirits are deceiving them.2 Corinthians 11:14-15 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
There is not a just man upon earth that doeth good and sinneth not (ref. Ecclesiastes 7:20). We all deserve to go to hell and the lake of fire. But God loved us and sent his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ to save us from our sins. We must REPENT of our sins and BELIEVE in the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and OBEY the word of God, the Bible. Those that want to know God, may wish to see our article, How to Get to Heaven.
Testimonies of former witches:
- Her entry point was fairy tales (includes an email from one trying to leave Wicca who asked for more information for those trying to overcome. A link in that section offers help. There is a saved, satisfying, and holy life found that is found only in the Lord Jesus Christ and his word.)
- From Witch to Rich--in Jesus!
- Third Generation Witch (witchcraft beliefs and practices were normal in the Catholic church she attended. When comparing Roman Catholic doctrines to the Bible, it quickly becomes obvious that the Roman Catholic "church" is not Christian.)
Wicca witchcraft calls itself "white witchcraft". This supposedly denotes that Wiccans only do "good" witchcraft. Where did the people of our society get the impression that witchcraft is good? I believe that it has been the incessant movies and tv shows that show witchcraft and spiritism in a favorable, although imaginary light. Shows like--
- I Dream of Jeannie,
- Sabrina the Good (or Teen) Witch,
- Cinderella and her fairy godmother (and other Disney movies featuring magic); and,
- Casper the Friendly Ghost.
According to the Bible, there is no such thing as a good witch. In a day of relativism and deceit,
we need to cling to the Bible, the word of God. It will keep us safe.
We define good or bad in relation to the Bible and the Bible ALONE, not our own logic.
Proverbs 14:12 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
In this article, we are going to examine some Wiccan beliefs and practices. Any objective person will find that Wicca is made up of fables, vain imagination, paganism, blasphemy, lies, tales, heresay, and a seemingly endless list of ceremonies, magick, sabbats, etc. According to former Wiccan High Priest, Bill Schnoebelen, the serious practitioner of Wicca will find himself going to deeper depths which lead further into the worship of Lucifer (which is what some people call Satan).
I personally hear from Wiccans, pagans, Satanists, Buddhists, etc. And all of these groups have something in common--the devil. Many of these groups actually know him by "Lucifer" or some deriviative whether the horned god, Pan (the goat-foot god), Cernunnos, Dionysos, Osiris, Bacchus, etc. The horned god is a phallic (phallic refers to a man's privy member) deity of fertility. Why would people worship the devil? Because he offers what they like -- "DO WHAT THOU WILL shalt be the whole of the law".wiccan rede (motto/creed): "An' it harm none, DO WHAT THOU WILL."
satanic creed: "DO WHAT THOU WILL shall be the whole of the law"
It is the same thing. Do what you feel like doing. That will never work with God. We must repent of our sins in order to be saved, not continue in them. Whoremongers, thieves, sodomites, liars, adulterers, etc. are not going into the kingdom of God. God is holy. He made us and he knows what is best for us. I am glad that I am saved. All that misery that I was once engaged in, and was victimized by, is a distant memory. At this link is the testimony of a former Wiccan who came to the Lord Jesus Christ.
The pentagram symbol for witchcraft (pentwicc.gif) is the upside down pentagram for Satanism (pentsata.gif). In Satanism, they will draw the horned god in this pentagram. The top two points represent his horns. [Note: I discourage anyone from looking closely at these symbols, that is why they are no longer on this page.]
When people do not obey the word of God, God will give them over to strong delusion that they should believe a lie. Those seeking the truth will come to the Lord Jesus Christ and he will clean them up from their filthy deeds whereas the Devil basically says "Do what you feel like doing, my people!" Unfortunately, many people say "yes" to the devil and go right on in death--fornication, whoredom, abortion, lasciviousness, licentiousness, drunken stupors, astral travel, incubus, magic, necromancy, familiar spirits, hugging trees, seeking hidden/occultic wisdom--anything but worshipping the Lord Jesus. Their deeds are earthy, sensual, DEVILISH.
It is said that Lucifer means "Light-bearer". The Bible says that Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light and that therefore is no great wonder that his ministers are transformed as the ministers of righteousness. Lucifer is the Devil/Satan/that Old Serpent/the Dragon. Lucifer and Satan are not two different entitites. New Age people are always talking about light and spiritual guides. These deceived people are talking about the Devil and his devils! They are not talking with "Ascended Masters" they are talking with the Devil and his minions. People at the lower levels of these groups may not realize the role of Satan, but the higher ups most certainly do.
"But" some Wiccan witch may protest, "how can I worship Satan if I don't believe he exists?" If you are not serving Jesus, you serving the devil de facto. The following link will take you to a page where your question will be further answered. Satan's hoofprints are all over Wicca. Here you will find two chapters of Wicca: Satan's Little White Lie.
The information on this treatise on Wicca is taken primarily from a book entitled, "Wicca: Satan's Little White Lie" by Bill Schnoebelen. This book will give insight into the web of confusion, lies, fables, myths, and deceit found in Wicca. Mr. Schnoebelen was--"initiate into the Alexandrian Wicca on Imbolc, February 2, 1973 and made a High Priest and Magus in September of the same year. That summer his lady and he were also promoted to the High Priestly rank in the Druidic Craft of the Wise. They also helped establish a Church of All Worlds "nest" in Milwaukee and studied under Gavin and Yvonne Frost and their Church and School of Wicca. They presided over one of the oldest and largest networks of covens in the Midwest."
"Wicca: Satan's Little White Lie" page 10
Bill Schnoebelen eventually went on to Satanism.
WICCANS SAY THAT WICCA IS OLDER THAN "CHRISTIANITY"
Wicca adherents will tell you over and over that Wicca is older than "Christianity" (not a Bible word). Witchcraft is not older than worship of the true God. It came up in OPPOSITION to the worship of the true God.
Nothing is older than the Kingdom of God. The eternal God is the Author and Finisher of His kingdom. Nothing predates Him. From the days of Adam through the present day, God has continuously built a spiritual house composed of living stones--men, women, boys and girls (see I Peter 2:5, Ephesians 2:20-22, 2 Corinthians 6:16, I Corinthians 3:16, 6:19). These are people who have believed in Him in every age, have exercised faith in Him, and have worshipped Him. God is a builder.Ephesians 2:19-22 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the HOUSEHOLD of God; And are built upon the FOUNDATION of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the CHIEF CORNER STONE; In whom all the BUILDING fitly FRAMED together GROWETH unto an holy TEMPLE in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an HABITATION of God through the Spirit.
The earthly father of all these stones was Adam. The lineage of Jesus Christ is traced back to Adam in Luke 3:23-38. Before Adam, there was no man...so...no, witchcraft is not older than worship of the true God. It came up in OPPOSITION to the worship of the true God.
WICCANS SAY THAT WICCA IS THE "OLD RELIGION"
Wicca as a group is not old. Wiccans believe the lies that their leaders have taught them. This should be no surprise because their father, the devil, is the "father of lies" (John 8:44). And because they have not received the love of the truth, the Lord has given them over to strong delusion that they should believe, and defend, lies. According Mr. Schnoebelen on page 11 of his book on Wicca--"Although much of the extant literature written by witches (and Dr. Margaret Murray's work) would lead one to believe that Wicca is a survival of the ancient pagan fertility cults, especially of Northern Europe and the British Isles; there is not a shred of real historical proof for any connection between Bronze Age cults and modern witchcraft."
"...it seemed that Wicca is, in fact, a manufactured religion not much older than this century. There did not seem to be evidence for any Book of Shadows (a combined "bible" and ritual book for Wiccans) much older than the 1910's. [the BoS was probably the result of a collaboration between Gerald Gardner and the notorious Satanist Aleister Crowley, p. 22]"
Although Wicca is new, the forces behind Wicca aren't new. Wicca is the same devil worship and rejection of God that has been going on for centuries, yea, millenia. It's simply been warmed over and served to a spiritually devastated world.
BASICS OF WICCA
Cult name: Wicca.
Founder: Gerald B. Gardner (1884-1964). In 1949 Gardner wrote a book entitled, "High Magic's Aid". He wrote under his witchcraft name "Scire". This novel set the tone for the myth of Wicca. Notice Wicca is based on a fictional book. According to Little White Lie--"Gardner claimed there were covens of witches in Britain practicing not an anti-Christian religion, but a "pre-Christian" religion. This, he claimed, was called Wicca...
"This he asserted, was the "Old Religion," an animistic worship of the principals of nature and reproduction; rather like a warmed-over rehash of Fraser's anthropological chestnut, THE GOLDEN BOUGH. The gods of this Old Religion were a supreme Mother Goddess who ruled the earth, the moon, the sea, and things agricultural. Her secret name (in his coven anyway) was ARAYDA. There was also a Horned God who ruled the sun and hunting, who was variously called Herne, Cernunnos or Pan.
"Thus, Wicca was not an attack on Christianity, but was supposedly a much older religion whose gods were old when Yahweh of the Bible was in knee pants. According to Gardner, witches worshipped naked (or "skyclad" as he preferred to call it) and were matriarchal..."
Many higher level witches understand that Wicca is a compilation of myths; nevertheless, like Carl Jung they perceive that myths have a life of their own and even if they are not literally true they still have an archetypal power all their own. So a lie can be the truth. But the Bible says--
"no lie is of the truth." I John 2:21
Back to Wicca: Satan's Little White Lie--"It is now a matter of common knowledge that much of Gardner's story is fiction. Yet, most witches aren't bothered by that. Since the seventies, many witches wanted to be totally creative and make up their religion out of their heads--without trying to make any pretentious claims about having "unbroken lines of power" back to medieval "Kings" of the witches. Most Neo-pagan groups fall into this category. They are based on myths, fantasy or even science-fiction stories."
Reader, could you imagine basing your life on science-fiction? That is vain imagination. My life based on fairy stories from unholy-wood? My life based on fairy stories and legends? Basing my life on fables? But you see the scriptures have come to pass on our society--And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 2 Timothy 4:4
Wicca didn't end with Gardner. Alex Sanders (aka "King of the Witches") came up with his own brand of Wicca but,"By the early 70's there were dozens of traditions of Wicca; some splintered off Gardner or Sanders but most were totally original. There were ethnic witches like the Welsh Traditionalists (headed by a homosexual [sodomite], Ed Bucyzinksi), Georgian, Nordic, Sicilian Stregoi, Hispanic Brujeria and the Druidic Craft from Scotland, plus the contorverial but highly successful Church of Wicca of Gavin and Yvonne Frost. (p. 17)
"There are many differences between these dozens of groups. Some worked nude, others robed. Some whipped, most didn't. Some used ritual sex or even orgies, some abstained. A few common elements can be found, though, in all Wicca and Neo-Paganism:
- A polytheistic world-view; usually a god/goddess pair.
- A belief in "westernized" reincarnation (no moving backward to incarnate as animals, just moving forward to be reborn as humans)
- A shamanic worldview similar to animism (the belief that all objects have life and souls) which includes strong ecological overtones and often an openness to some drugs.
- Most are militantly feminist and politically left-wing, even anarchistic; although there are exceptions.
- A "do your own thing" morality, as long as it doesn't "hurt anybody." This often included free sexual activity at least within the group.
- An "Aquarian" view of human destiny--the seed bed from which was grown much of the New Age movement--the notion that persons can evolve spiritually through their own efforts and ultimately attain either enlightenment or even godhood.
It is easy to see that with values like this, Wicca took off like a rocket among the "hippie" generation... (p. 18-19)
Overview of the group: Wicca claims to be "a back to nature" type religion that worships the sky and earth. It is goddess worship. Some Wiccans proudly tote bumper stickers that say, "In Goddess We Trust". Their chief deity is the Great Mother, "Holy Mother Earth". According to Mr. Schnoebelen, there is a certain charm and nostalgic fantasy to Wicca. Wicca transports folks from the high-tech world of today to cultures past, to fantasy, to science FICTION. In other words, they are toted away from REALITY."Add to this intriguing stew, Satan added such notions as ecology, environmental awareness and feminism." p. 19
- Wicca has many denominations/sects/traditions. Some are large like the Alexandrian, Gardnerian, Druidic, Welsh Traditionalist, Georgian, Dianic, and Church of Wicca. Others are as small as a single coven of 13 or family tradition.
- Wiccans say Wicca means "wise one". Mr. Schnoebelen states that the Oxford English Dictionary defines Wicca as, "twisted, bent, or warped". Wiccan writers admit this on some level (p. 12-13). To this writer, Wicca means "wicked"!
- Satanism is just a perversion of Christianity whereas Wicca is an older, purer faith which stood on its own merits.
- Wiccans are told lies about our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
- Neo-pagan writer Tim ("Otter") Zell says it is an "old religion for a new age". A generation that turns from the God of the Bible is deceived enough to embrace a lie that fits in with their lusts, earth worship, spiritual voids, love of science FICTION, romanticism, and adopted legends. In other words, anything that feeds their flesh. This is vain imagination.
- Non-witches are "cowans".
- They say that Satan is a Christian myth.
- Many Wiccans start out refusing to do any magick which would influence people against their wills. This oftentimes doesn't last long.
- The Wiccan Rede, is "an it harm none, do what ye will". It is perilously close to the Crowley's (a Satanist) commandment, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law."
- they think their rites benefit humanity and the earth. Performed to nature deities like Pan, Diana, Cernunnos (these are all devils).
- performed rites of passage and initiation--Mr. Schnoebelen stood blindfolded, naked and bound at the edge of the Circle "which is placed between the worlds". He was anointed as a Priest of the Goddess and learned her secret name. "She is supposedly the One 'who was with me from the beginning, and who was attained at the end of desire.'"
- For those who would progress further in Wicca they get into a relationship with the Lord of the Underworld, the Dark Lord of Death. This Dark Lord of Death is the darker aspect of Cernunnos or Lucifer, the Horned God of Wicca. Read "Wicca: Satan's Little White Lie" for more information on the rite of "The Descent of the Goddess into the Underworld". Learn about the necklace, eternal marrige, and reincarnation in Wicca.
- As the Wiccan progresses, he is told to essentially embrace the dark side of his nature (the Bible calls it sin) just like the goddess went down to the Lord of Death. Miriam Starhawk, a leading thinker of the Wicca movement wrote,"The depths of our beings are not all sunlit; to see clearly we must be able to dive into the dark, inner abyss and Acknowledge the creatures we may find there. p. 31
What kind of creatures are you going to find there Starhawk (they seem to adopt many fantastical names)? I'll tell you what kind--DEVILS! She won't call them by name, but I will-- DEVILS!
- Satan is a Biblical myth, and a slander on the true god of light, Lucifer p. 38
- They disrespect the God of the Bible. p. 38-39
- With the institutionaliation of "Christianity" in the fourth century [this should read, "Catholicism"] all the true secrets of Jesus [I have deleted what was here. I encourage all to leave any study of wicca and evil alone.].
- Lucifer (often known as Bel, Lugh, Herne, Faunus, Pan or Cernunnos) was the true god and that Satan was a boogy-man manufactured by Christians.
- The book, "Wicca: Satan's Little White Lie", notes--
- bathing in ice cold stream and celebrating the March equinox naked under the stars p.7
- dancing around naked under the moon.
- wild circle dances
- burning frankincense
- circle ceremonies
- ceremonial magick
- Gardner's Wiccans--
- dancing naked in a ring within a magick circle
- ritual whoredom on solemn occasions
- whip one another ceremonially to purify and raise the power.
"White Lie" shows the relationship between the leaders of Wicca (Gardener and Sanders) and Aleister Crowley this century's most infamous SATANIST. Crowley proclaimed himself the wickedest man in the world and Mega Therion, the Great Beast. For the importance of the Grail legend to the deceived Wiccan, see p. 235 of Lucifer Dethroned also by William Schnoebelen.
Deuteronomy 18:9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
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.
18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
18:12 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.
18:13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God.
18:14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
NO WITCHCRAFT! The choice is Jesus OR witchcraft. Never both.
For the Christian testimony of a former Wiccan, go here.
Many Wiccans think that they practice white witchcraft (the devil has deceived them), but here is a sister of theirs who embraces the devil, in the form of the dark goddess--Tracy,
I went to Jesus is Lord .com and I saw your photos on abortions.......WAY COOL , I myself am A witch and a lesbian. I also had an abortion but my dead fetus didn't look like that (I WISH).... you see when I saw the pictures I really had no emotion about it well I had one and that was pride...you see I do worship the dark goddess and I do offerings to her to allow more abortion to happen..for you see the only good child is a dead child.sorry..... I get more emotional when I see animals die in a slaughter house....oh yeah....I'm vegan also. but when you try to scare us with these stupid pictures...well...they don't work...A real witch would not even bat an eye over it because we know what true evil is....and thats you...christians...yeah what a surprise....anyway just wanted to let you know I enjoyed the photos and I might buy some to display on my wall.....hay, a visal image when I pray to the goddess.....good idea indarkness2ever,
Of some, the Bible says that their conscience is seared with a hot iron. That means that it doesn't work anymore. They have done so much evil that they are PAST feeling. Anyone who thinks tortured children is "good" has a reprobate mind--and then has the nerve to shamelessly make it known. [I don't know if there is any hope for that woman or not.] I am glad that heaven is a place where there will be no murderers, no crooks, no liars, no sodomites, no thieves, no tale bearers, no sorcerers, no dogs, no whoremongers, no drunkards, etc.--SUCH WERE SOME OF US CHRISTIANS, I WAS ONE! I was a whoremonger and a murderer. I had an abortion and felt relieved about it for a long time and now I am so sorry that I killed my child that would have loved me. He or she (or they) would be an adult at this time and would have been my friend. I may have been expecting my first grandchild soon, but no. I gave Satan my firstborn. Yes, I was filthy too and if it were not for God's grace and mercy, I would still be lost. The fear of the Lord is CLEAN and it makes wise the simple. Men can be saved. If anybody reading this is looking for the truth, it is found in the Lord Jesus Christ. You have to repent and believe in him. That he shed his blood for you sins, that he died and that he rose from the dead on the third day. If you repent of your sins, come to him on his terms, he will save you and lead and guide you through his word, the Authorized King James Bible and give you abundant life. Pray and read his word and hearken to it and rend yourself from all evil. You will receive a whole new life full of wonder and purpose.
The visible church today is largely false (I don't know of one good one) and there are people leaving it to find a spiritual experience. It is unfortunate that some of those that leave do not know and believe their Bibles (they may only have a counterfeit Bible). They can't find the truth in their church. Berit Kjos wrote a book about this phenomena. According to her book, some are leaving because of the church's deaf ear to environmental concerns. The Bible has a lot to say about the environment and clean living and clean food. The Bible has personally led me out of the materialism of today and to a simple life even down to making my own skirts and growing some of my own food. I read my Bible and seek direction from God and talk to him. He leads and guides me. We all need him. The name of the Lord is blasphemed through the visible church and in this day of apostasy, it is hard to find the word of the Lord. If any Wiccans are reading this, I invite you to read our article entitled, How to Get to Heaven.
