Hey guys! It’s been on my mind for awhile to write a post about America’s fascination with modern day witchcraft. It’s really surprising to me how the occult is so subtle- yet so apparent in a lot of everyday life.
I wrote a post on Wicca not too long ago, and I received some interesting feedback from people claiming to be practitioners of Wicca themselves. One of the biggest arguments for Wicca was this: people should follow what makes them happy. If it feels right and doesn’t harm anyone, you should do it.
After all, this is what our culture is obsessed with.
What is modern day witchcraft?
I was scrolling through a Pinterest board I have for my blog posts, and I clicked onto a post I’ve written on the occult. I scrolled down to see if I could find any similarly written posts, but I was greeted with this:
Witchcraft and satanism.
Guys, I found witch life hacks, tips for beginning witches, self care after casting spells, palm-reading tips, calendars for different occult rituals, and even how to care for a child as a witch.
This. Is. Real.
Modern day witchcraft is manifested even on Pinterest. This is a much bigger issue than we’d like to think.
Why witchcraft is destructive… not another path of religion.
As I said before, I received some negative feedback because people called Wicca another viable form of religion. I said it was a destructive path based on evil. And I still stand by that.
Witchcraft is not harmless. It is completely wrapped around what demons love and celebrate. So many people have been deceived and trapped by the “do what you please” mindset. But this… this is far more sinister.
“There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer. For whoever does these things is detestable to the LORD.” -Deuteronomy 18:10,12
Jesus claims to be the way, the truth, and the one that carries life. Not a way, a truth, and a way of life. We can’t say that we believe anything else is good or optional as truth.
What’s wrong with witchcraft?
Since witchcraft is definitely not from God, that means that it is the exact opposite. Evil. Modern witches are playing around with dark spiritual forces whether they realize it or not. It is so very sad.
This is how demons get a hold of people through possession. This is how people fall into the hands of evil and lose control of their bodies, their hearts, their minds, everything.
This. Is. Dangerous.
Why do I write about witchcraft if it doesn’t affect me?
I’ve been asked this before. Here is my answer: I care. I don’t write this because I like to be controversial or I like to be in your business. That is not it at all.
I write because… even though we haven’t met, I don’t want for you to give up your life for the occult. I don’t want for you to become so consumed in darkness that you can no longer see any light. I don’t want for you to be trapped in something you can’t get out of.
I write because I know a God that offers freedom.
Thank you for reaching the end of this post, and have a wonderful day!
