Christian witches? Whatâs next? Married bachelors? Square circles?
A combination of disbelief, mockery, and genuine concern for the souls of those who might claim such a label populated a friendâs Facebook thread when he referenced a rise in Christians who also identify as witches.
In the era of #MeToo, the badge of âwitchâ is inspiring artists, pop stars, and entrepreneurs who claim it as a mark not of evil but of womenâs wisdom, creative power, and self-agency. And yes, despite the well-known spiritual dangers of dabbling in any sort of occultism or practical magic, some of these witches also identify as Catholics....
Just a few snippets from deeper into the article. God's Word is crystal clear on seeking information and powers from the dark side, no matter what these women choose to call it. I would think a Catholic woman, at least, would know better than this...
"And yes, despite the well-known spiritual dangers of dabbling in any sort of occultism or practical magic, some of these witches also identify as Catholics."
âbut at a time when misogyny is rampant and womenâs rights are on shaky ground, they relate to the witch as a feminist symbol. A witch, after all, is a woman with power.â
"Among Catholic women, in particular, I see, at best, ambivalence to the male church hierarchy in the wake of so many disturbing revelations of abuse. We feel betrayed by those we trusted to lead us when we were not permitted to lead. With the wisdom of these men now called into question, we look to the wise women of historyâso often dismissively, dangerously labeled âwitches.â
âWe are the granddaughters of the witches you werenât able to burn,â read a sign at the Womenâs March in 2016. Catholic women might hold up a sign that says âwe are the children of Joan of Arc,â who was condemned a witch and sentenced to death before she was ever declared a saint."
They were not Christians. Period. Americaâs idea of Christianity doesnât appear to have anything to do with salt and light. Lady GaGa and the entertainment industry, along with both liberal to socialist politicians all identifiy as being Christian. And yet, you will know them by their fruit and whether they love the brethren. Do they and are they producing a life worthy of the King.
Nominals, Romans and Liberalists may do that, but then they are not real Christians.
Exod 22:18 Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live."
1Chron 10:13 So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to inquire of it;"
Deuter 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee."
