Witchcraft is a cultural trend in America. How does the Christian Church handle witches? The main reason for witchcraft culture is dissatisfaction with the Christian Church and organized religion. White witches are peaceful. Satan is no longer taken seriously. Satan and witches are simply jump scare scenes in horror movies.

A subculture of witchcraft is in our market, including witchcraft books, clothing, jewelry, music, toys, and artifacts. The practice of witchcraft is sold at trade shows, on television, and in shopping malls.

Witchcraft in Politics

Witchcraft has meddled in our politics since the founding of our nation. Many of our founding fathers were Freemasons. The Great Seal of the United States contains the god Apollo. Printed United States paper money includes the Eye of Horus, a god from Egyptian mythology. The design of the street grids in D.C. form a pentagram. These are just a few of the many instances that are found in our political system.

Witchcraft is thriving in downtown Washington D.C.. There are a number of Facebook covens. Connect D.C. is a public ritual group that seeks to reunite the North and South with boundary stones set by our forefathers. With the election of President Trump, witches have come out of the woodwork.

Since President Trump’s election, witches have gathered outside Trump Tower and Washington D.C. The purpose – to curse President Trump and bind his political power. In San Francisco, witches put a hex on city hall Halloween, 2017. The witches used social media, so witches who couldn’t attend would take part. A protest group, W.I.T.C.H., established Halloween, 1968, from New York, is now a worldwide organization. The Satanic Temple has even taken part in legislative processes.

The Christian Church’s response to witchcraft

The Bible is firm concerning witches and witchcraft. Leviticus 19:31 (NIV) states, “Don’t turn to mediums or seek out spiritists. They will defile you. I am the LORD your God.” I Samuel 15:23a (NIV), “For rebellion is as the sin of divination.” Leviticus 20:6a “I will set my face against anyone who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute themselves by following them.” Finally, Leviticus 20:27a (NIV) states, “A man or woman who is a medium or spiritist among you must be put to death.”

How does the Christian Church reach witches? It’s difficult because Wiccans, witches, and Satanists don’t believe the same things. Wiccans live by a code and don’t believe in Satan. Witches believe in the power of Satan. The church of Satan consists of mainstream, educated, and influential people.

When witnessing to witches or those who practice witchcraft, cover yourself with prayer. You are dealing with dark power. Know your Bible. Wiccans believe that Scripture is fallible. You need to know your Bible to contest their arguments. Finally, many people who practice witchcraft are good people. They believe they are doing a good thing. When talking to them about your faith, show them love and kindness. Show them the completion that Christ has given you.
