    what to make of wiccans

    Post  timmytheimpaler on Mon Aug 02, 2010 8:55 pm

    I'm in an organization with a couple of interesting people. One told us that she's a witch. Sure enough, she sports pentagram earrings. Seams like a pretty reasonable person otherwise, someone who'd make a decent neighbor, wouldn't let her dog leave piles in your yard or borrow your lawnmower and not give it back.

    Another person in this organization calls herself a "healer." She had some other word in front of it, sounded like Leika or Leyka or something like that. Some Indian thing, I guess, though she can't be much of a healer because she recently had brain surgery to have something removed. I'd guess it to be analogous to a medicine man or shaman or something equally foolish. When she announced this, I turned to the guy beside me, who happens to be a baptist minister, and rolled my eyes. He put his hand on my arm and said, "Oh, that's ok."

    Well, I don't know what that is, precisely, so I don't know if it's ok. But since he said it was, I gave her the benefit of the doubt. Back when I was a futurist, I wouldn't have wanted to be around these people. I wouldn't have feared them or anything, but I wouldn't want to associate with them.

    But now that I'm a preterist, that puts a different spin on things. If the devil is toast, so to speak, fondue, or whatever, then these individuals could hardly be worshiping him or consorting with him, intentionally or otherwise, even of they thought they were. They'd be more comical or pitiful than evil, right? So am I right that we needn't avoid business dealings with them? It seems to me that, with the devil resembling a s'more, someone who claims to be a wiccan is no more evil than someone who worships Quetzlcoatal or Barney Rubble, or someone equally fictitious. Would you agree?

    Hi Timmytheimpaler

    Just thought I'd let you know a little about Wiccan Religion if one could call it a religion. Let's just say it's a belief system. I studied Wicca for sometime a couple of years ago and I was surprised their meetings where very similar to a pentecostal church service. What with dancing, praising, clapping and singing.

    They see themselves as white witches. A bit like a white lie compared to a big whopper of a lie.

    Part of their creed is:
    Do What You Will, but harm none . . .

    They follow the moon cycles and are nature worshipers to a degree.

    They claim not to be Satanists or delve into the black arts etc.

    They believe in Spirit and that's not to be confused with the Holy Spirit. There spirit is a cosmic spirit. Non judgmental just some energy force like in Star Wars.

    I hope that explanation gives a little more information. All this Wiccan stuff has been promoted by many TV shows like: Charmed etc.

    Is it harmful? I believe to delve into any form of spiritual practice outside of Christianity is treading dangerous ground.

    A quick word on Reiki (pronounced Ray-kee or Rake-ee) is promoted mainly in New Age circles, but originally stated in Japan and came to the west in 1937.

    It's a healing movement that uses the laying on of hands using god's life force energy that supposedly flows through all of us.

    Hang on, I just saw a heard of pigs go flying past my window!

    Today it's mainly administered for stress. I think I'd rather have my back scratched!

    Of course like most of these new age therapies they all cost money to learn and it gets dearer as you go up each level.

    It's a counterfeit Christian form of Healing. Which as far as I'm concerned, rather than the Reiki experience you'd be better off taking two aspirin and going to bed.

    Hi timmy...

    Yes, the devil is in The Lake since AD 70. See Rev. 20. However, scripture is still very clear that we are to not just simply steer clear of those who are involved with any form of witchcraft (white or black, it's all the same). See Dt 18:10-12, Lev. 19:26, etc. In Acts 19:17-19, those involved with these black arts of necromancy (talking to the dead) astrology, sorcery, witchcraft, came together and burned their books of sorcery and and magic. A true act of repentance.
