Wicca is the name for a contemporary pagan revival of witchcraft. Wicca is the name, and witchcraft is the game—and the Devil is laughing his head off. Wicca witchcraft calls itself "white witchcraft." This supposedly means that Wiccans only do "good" witchcraft. According to the Bible, there is no such thing as a good witch, “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” (Deuteronomy 18:10). Hence, based on the Bible, ALL witches are wicked—including Wiccans. So if a bunch of confused Wiccans tell you that white witches are good, who are you going to believe? Them or the Bible? New Ages are always talking about "light" "and spiritual guidance." 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. Interestingly, Wiccans deny the existence of Satan—so they’ll ask, “How can I worship Satan if I don't believe he exists?" If you are NOT serving the Lord Jesus Christ, you are serving the Devil whether you realize it or not. Satan's hoof-prints are all over Wicca!!!
Although the religion of Wicca is new, the forces behind Wicca aren't new. Incidentally, Wicca was founded by an occult Freemason, Gerald Gardner. Wicca is the same old wicked devil worship and rejection of God. It's simply been warmed over and served to a spiritually apostate world. People would rather believe lies and do what they want to than believe the Lord and surrender to Him. Consequently they will have no peace. For those who would progress further in Wicca, they get into a relationship with the Lord of the Underworld, the Dark Lord of Death. As the Wiccan progresses, she is told to essentially embrace the dark side of Lucifer's nature (the Bible calls it sin). Wicca claims to be "a back to nature" type religion that worships the sky and earth—It is goddess worship. Some of them even proudly tote bumper stickers that say, "In Goddess We Trust." Their chief deity is the Great Mother, "Holy Mother Earth."
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 taken away from REALITY. Wiccans totally disrespect the True and Living God of the Bible—Jesus Christ. Wicca claims that Satan is a Biblical myth, and a slander on the true god of light—Lucifer. Wicca teaches that Lucifer (often known as Bel, Lugh, Herne, Faunus, Pan or Cernunnos) was the true god and that Satan was a boogie-man manufactured by Christians. Wiccans really think Lucifer is a great guy. “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and DOCTRINES OF DEVILS” (1st Timothy 4:1). Wicca is Satanic, the doctrine of devils!!! God says to those involved in Wicca, “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” (John 8:44). Lucifer is a bold-faced liar—the devil—that old deceitful serpent. He is a murderer. Jesus said, The thief (Lucifer) cometh not, but for to STEAL, and to KILL, and to DESTROY: I am come that they might have life” (John 10:10). There are many differences between the dozens of groups of Wiccans; however, the following common elements can be found:
A polytheistic world-view (there are many gods, usually a pair).
A belief in reincarnation (animals come back as humans)
A belief that ALL objects have life and souls.
A "do your own thing" morality, as long as it doesn't "hurt anybody." This often includes free sexual activity (at least within the group).
The belief that persons can evolve spiritually through their own efforts and ultimately attain either enlightenment or even godhood (similar to what Mormon’s believe).
There is no headquarter organization with a stated creed or dogma. Wiccans are very disorganized. In fact, it is precisely this lack of structure that draws many to these groups. These pagan faiths attract very bright people who feel different or special, those who have had bad experiences with mainstream religions, those who feel abandoned by God, free spirits who dislike structure, the rejected (by family or society), rebels, and those attracted to occult or mystical experiences. Some witches do not call themselves witches, but refer to themselves as Wiccans, white witches, or neo-pagans. “Neo-paganism” is simply a cover for witchcraft. In Wicca, everyone has his or her own spiritual path to follow. Rituals and celebrations are linked to the seasons and moon phases. Meditation, visualization, invocation (calling on forces or gods/goddesses), chanting, burning candles and special rituals trigger a sense of the mystical, thus reinforcing the core belief system. Witches and Neo-pagans claim they practice white magic, using their power and abilities to bring about good. They revere nature, support peace, and believe society cannot be at peace if we are out of harmony with nature or are mistreating our mother, Earth.
I believe most Wiccans are sincere people, many tired of organized religion. I think God is also disgusted with most religion; however, the Word of God condemns witchcraft and all other false religions as well. I always remind folks that salvation is NOT found in a religion; but rather, it is found in a person—Jesus Christ. Religion is man’s manipulation of the truth; but we must follow God’s Word—the King James Bible. Wicca is evil and should be avoided and condemned. Their is no merit in anything that leaves out Jesus Christ. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). Say yes to Jesus!!!
