Is Wicca evil?
Question: "What is Wicca? Is Wicca witchcraft?"

Answer: Wicca is a neo-pagan religion that has been growing in popularity and acceptance in the United States and Europe. There are many websites and books claiming to teach “real” Wicca, but the truth is, there is no consensus among Wiccans as to what the religion is all about. The reason for this is that Wicca, as it is practiced now, is only about 50 years old. Wicca is a belief system that Briton Gerald Gardner cobbled together in the 1940s and 1950s from a variety of religious traditions and beliefs as well as Freemason rituals. Since Gardner published several books espousing his system of worship, many offshoots and variations of Wicca have sprung up. Some Wiccans are polytheistic, worshipping more than one deity, while others worship only the “God” or the “Goddess.” Still other Wiccans worship nature, and call it Gaea, after the Greek earth goddess. Some Wiccans pick and choose parts of Christian doctrine to embrace, while others totally reject Christianity. Most practitioners of Wicca believe in reincarnation.

Most Wiccans will vehemently deny that Satan is part of their pantheon, citing major doctrinal differences between themselves and Satanists. Wiccans generally promote moral relativity, disdaining labels like “good” and “evil” and “right” or “wrong.” Wicca has one law or rule, called the Rede: “Do what ye will, harm ye none.” At first blush, the Rede seems like complete, uninhibited personal license. You can do whatever you want, as long as no one gets hurt; however, Wiccans are quick to point out that the ripple effect of one’s actions can carry far-reaching consequences. They articulate this principle in the Three-fold Law, which says, "All good that a person does to another returns three-fold in this life; harm is also returned three-fold."

One major factor that contributes to the abiding fascination with Wicca is the purported use of spells and magick (a deliberate misspelling intended to separate Wiccans from magicians and illusionists). Curiosity seekers, as well as spiritual neophytes, are most eager to delve into these mysteries. Not all Wiccans practice witchcraft, but those that do claim magick is to them what prayer is to a Christian. The difference between the two is that Wiccans claim magick is simply using their minds to control matter, or they are appealing to their favorite deity to do them a favor, while Christians call upon an omnipotent, omnipresent God to heal people and to intervene and work in their lives. Because the Rede disallows witches from hurting others and the Three-fold Law spells out the consequences for Rede-breakers, witches who practice magick prefer to call themselves “nature witches” or “white witches” to further distance themselves from Satanists.

Wicca is basically a religion that is about minding your own business and living peaceably with your neighbors and environment. Wiccans are eager to draw parallels between themselves and biblical Christianity for the sake of earning credibility, but what does the Bible have to say about this religion? You won’t find the word “wicca” in the Bible, so let’s evaluate the beliefs in light of what God says about them.

Wiccan spells are idolism—Romans 1:25 says, “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served created things, rather than the Creator…” Who wants to settle for second best? In Isaiah 40, God paints a picture of how much greater the Creator is than His creation. If you are worshipping anything besides the Creator, you are not only spinning your wheels, you are guilty of idolatry.

Druidism, which Wiccan's claim to emulate practiced child sacrifice. Wiccan's will do the same if left to their own devices.

Yes, like all false religions, Wicca is satanic and is designed to ravage your soul.

Re: Is Wicca evil?
No, it is not. The Christians stole Pagan or Wiccan to make their own watered down religion.

If Wicca is evil, then so is Christianity.. because 1 second ago I made up a new religion called Pleepoop, Pleepoopians believe that Christ is evil and all its believers are evil minions.

Since there's no laws about religion or even any red tape that they have to go through to become recognized as a religion, anyone can just make one up on a whim.

Go ahead, make one, its fun. It'll make you feel like you have free will.

Re: Is Wicca evil?
Rome created Christianity and Rome is the forth Beast of the Bible. Rome also crucified Christ. Almost all churches have a steeple on the top. The steeple is an oblisk. Washington and Rome have Oblisk all over them. Christianity uses the Bible but twist it and only teach what they are allowed.

Every Pagan I have ran across treated the ground they walked on as part of them and they did not trash it. They use herbs and everything God put on this planet for food and medicine. Most Christians go to the doctor to get a potion which the Bible warns against. Pagans did not follow what Rome was spreading and that is why they are outcast to Christians. I believe in Jesus and God but I will not partake in the Christian Church. Too many sheep that cannot think for themselves.

Peace

Re: Is Wicca evil?
Wicca is kind of a philosophical / theological Swiffer. Sometimes a practitioner rises above it. And becomes what? Evil? Not hardly.

Certainly only as evil as the Christians I have known who use their religion to exact the utmost from those in their employ and then again to keep from rewarding those same people.

And sometimes I see in Wiccans a glimmer of a more holy spirit than that of the churches that have asked me to leave because of the clothes that I wear.

The Christians you know sound like false Christians and there churches are what you would call organized religion not really true Christianity!! The biblical definition of the Christian church is "the body of Christian believers" not some stupid building!!

True Christianity is not a religion! It is a personal relationship with the living GOD through Jesus Christ in prayer.
