Why is Wicca Witchcraft So Popular? - Articles Surfing
Wicca witchcraft is said to be the fastest growing religion amongst high school and college students in America. It is also now practiced by people in many different walks of life, including professionals like lawyers and teachers.
Wiccans practice what they call White magic, which they believe is 'good' and differs from the 'bad' black magic.
The motivation behind getting involved in wicca is not sinister in any way. The people involved are wanting to tap into the good 'forces' in nature, and direct them in a positive manner. They are seeking the 'power' to be able to perform good magic, and often times to also find a popular group to belong to. The number of witches covens is increasing daily. Wiccans promote good moral values like honesty.
Books like the Harry Potter series, and TV shows life 'Buffy', 'Sabrina the teenage Witch', 'Charmed' and other similar shows have skyrocketed the popularity of wicca witchcraft, in a way that is unprecedented.
The term witch, no longer seems to be associated with an ugly old woman wearing black and riding on a broomstick, it has taken on the guise of sexy young females, or young teenage boys.
Wiccans are not evil people seeking to destroy the world, but unfortunately they are oblivious to the true nature of the powers they are tapping into.
Wiccans don't believe in the devil, or demons and this is the greatest tragedy. They don't realise that the source of the magic they are delving into is not from 'nature' but from the sinister master of the evil invisible world. Deceiving spirits of demons are hard at work, luring the unknowing into a destructive cycle that can devastate their lives. It is not until people are heavily involved in wicca that they find they start to encounter 'bad spirits', 'psychic attacks', 'bad energies' and 'harmful voices' in their heads among other things. At this stage they need to start practicing what they call 'protection magic'.
There really are supernatural forces of good and evil at play behind the scenes in this world and the Bible reveals to us what these forces are. The Bible foretells that in the end times there will be many occult manifestations and that deceiving spirits will be rife and will seek to deceive even the elect.
We need to be really careful not to open up the wrong spiritual gateways. We need to seek the truth. Wiccans believe in reincarnation, but the Bible says, Hebrews 9:27 'And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:' Wiccans don't believe in the devil, and yet the Bible clearly shows that he exists. Probably the most tragic thing though is that wiccans don't think they need to have a saviour, but the Bible teaches that Jesus Christ gave His life so that all could be forgiven, if they accept Him as Lord of their lives. 1 Timothy 4:10 'For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.'
The devil is alive and well in this world and out to harm as many of God's blessed creations as he can. If you are involved in wicca, or know someone who is, you would be well advised to have a look at both sides of the equation, and at least consider what the Bible reveals about occult practices and the source of their power.
