Wicca and Sin
by David J. Stewart
In Wicca, there is no Holy Book, no written doctrine, no divine law. The only two 'laws' that are traditionally Wiccan, and are considered to be those ideals by which we try to live, are:
1. An it harm none, do what thou wilt.
2. What thou wilt do, will come back three times.
What this means, pure and simple, is that there are no "sins," such as sexual do's and don'ts, profanity, etc., AS LONG AS YOU STRIVE FOR AND AS MUCH AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE, ATTEMPT TO BRING HARM ON NO ONE!!!
Ironically, the Church of Satan professes the same beliefs. In fact, one of the leading members of the Church of Satan alleged that America is an absolute "Satanic nation" because of the extent of our freedoms. Nowhere in the world can people get away with as much as American do. Church of Satanists define Satanism as being able to do anything a person wants to do (just so long as no one is getting hurt). The Church of Satan openly professes their belief and allegiance to Satan.
On the other hand, Wiccans deny Satan. Wiccans vehemently deny the existence of a devil. They attribute the term "Satan" as being the sole invention of Christians. Wiccans claim to follow the god of light. Interestingly, "Lucifer" means just that...bearer of light. 2nd Corinthians 11:14 warns us that Satan appears as the "light."
Howbeit, BOTH Wiccans and Satanists profess the same lack of absolutes within their religions. The Word of God is a Book of ABSOLUTES! God is absolute and unchangeable (Malachi 3:6). Wiccans are greatly angered over the FACT that the Word of God is absolute, whereas they have no absolutes! The Bible is our FINAL AUTHORITY!
The Biblical concepts of sin, evil, wickedness, judgment, and redemption are NOT recognized by the Wiccan religion. Wiccans profess belief in "Karma" (the effects of a person's actions that determine his destiny in his next incarnation). Wiccans believe in reincarnation. I recently received an e-mail from an angry Wiccan woman (a witch). She bomblasted me for saying that Wiccans don't have a means of forgiveness within their religion. She specified that she believed in the "karma," that the life she lives here on earth will determine her happiness in her reincarnated body. She said I had no right to make a moral judgment upon her religion.
The problem is that Wiccans don't see their wrong doing as "sin." In fact, Wicca is perfectly acceptant of many practices which the Word of God declares an "abomination unto God." One such evil practice is homosexuality. Occult doctrines such as Yin-Yang are extremely popular with the homosexual community because of the fact that there are NO absolutes. The TRUTH is that there is no way for Wiccans to deal with sin...because they don't acknowledge their sins as being sinful in the first place. Since the Witches don't believe in sin, their entire moral conscience is obliterated (and their minds corrupted). The result is that many sinful activities which are condemned in God's Word are openly practiced by witches...such as sexual immorality during their occult rituals...
We conceive of the Creative Power in the Universe as manifesting through polarity – as masculine and feminine – and that this same creative Power lives in all people, and functions through interaction of the masculine and feminine. We value neither above the other, knowing each to be supportive of the other. We value sexuality as pleasure, as the symbol and embodiment of Life, and as one of the sources of energies used in magickal practice and religious worship. -Principles of Wiccan Belief, Article IV (1974)
The Word of God presents us with the law, which condemns us, and then points us to Christ for salvation (Galatians 3:24, "Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith"). Since the Wiccans don't recognize God's law (and have no written law of there own), they have no yardstick by which to measure themselves. How does a witch recognize sin without the measuring stick of God's law? They cannot! So for a witch to tell me that she is morally obligated to live right for the sake of Karma (her future reincarnate life) is no morality at all.
As I mentioned earlier, Wiccans are openly acceptant of sexual sins which are Biblically prohibited. Witchcraft is infamous for sexual rituals and ceremonial nudity. Anton LaVey, founder of the CHURCH OF SATAN, wrote a book called, The Satanic Witch, in which teaches women how to take advantage of men. The book is pure evil and promotes the sins of feminism and sexual immorality. From researching their own writings and websites, witches are well-known for lesbianism, orgies and sexual licentiousness. No wonder they have such an attraction for the Pagan god, Pan (the world's foremost sexual pervert).
You can't just decide for yourself what is right and wrong. The whole reason why God gave us the Old Testament Law was to give us the KNOWLEDGE OF SIN (Romans 3:20, "Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin"). The Apostle Paul said in Romans 7:13 that the Law made his sins EXCEEDING SINFUL! Wiccans have no knowledge of sin because they deliberately reject Christ and His Eternal Word.
Some Wiccans accuse Christians of trying to "scare" people with the Bible. The truth is that the Word of God is an extremely frightening Book to those who would dare reject and disobey it's COMMANDS. Acts 17:30 reads , "...but now commandeth all men every where to repent." God commands ALL people to repent of their unbelief and turn to Christ in faith for forgiveness and salvation. Though Wiccans may boast of a "moral" conscience due to concerns over Karma; the truth is that there is nothing "moral" about sexual immorality, using magick, casting spells, making potions, worshipping the moon, homosexuality, astrology, Tarot cards, and other forms of occult practices.
The morality of the witches is NO morality at all. You can't just decide for yourself what is right and wrong. In effect, each witch becomes their own god, deciding for themselves what they can or cannot do. Thus, the "morals" of each witch varies according to their own personal levels of character and decency. The Bible condemns such wickedness. Our morals could NEVER match up to the standards of God's Law (Romans 3:23). We have ALL sinned (Romans 3:10). We ALL deserve to die (Romans 6:23). The Wiccans have professed themselves to be wise, but have become fools (Romans 1:22).
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE SAVED?
Is there a time and place in your life, when you trusted in the blood of Jesus Christ? Not joined a church, not kept the sacraments, not baptism, not good works — but simply, by faith, prayed and asked Jesus Christ to save you?
To die without Jesus Christ will be the worst thing you could ever do...
"And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the LAKE OF FIRE." —Revelation 20:15
YOU CAN BE SAVED THIS VERY MINUTE!
It's simple to be saved...
- Know you're a sinner.
"As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:" Romans 3:10
"... for there is no difference. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" Romans 3:23
- Believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for your sins.
"Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, ..." 1 Peter 2:24
"... Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood," Revelation 1:5
- And the best way you know how, simply trust Him, and Him alone as your personal Savior.
"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
"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Romans 10:13
WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE SAVED?
Pray this prayer, and mean it with all your heart.
Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner, and unless you save me I am lost forever. I thank you for dying for me at Calvary. I come to you now, Lord the the best way I know how, and ask you to save me. I now receive you as my Saviour. Amen.
