What is Wicca?

QUESTION: What is Wicca?


I remember a number of years ago asking my dad for the first time about Wicca. The word itself sounded innocent enough to my child mind but I knew by the look on my dad's face that it could neither be innocently or easily defined. Even though I'm older now, have done research on my own, and have my own convictions about such things as Wicca, my dad's original definition has stuck with me.

"It's witchcraft," he said, which didn't help me out much, but I nodded with raised eyebrows as if I knew precisely what he was talking about. He went on to explain, "It is basically communication between humans and the spirit world." Maybe he was trying to make it sound simple, but either way, the definition is much deeper than this. Not only is witchcraft and sorcery communication with the spirit world, it is such interactions that deal with the dark spirits, the evil ones, for magical and superhuman abilities and powers.

Wicca symbolizes more than just a human chatting with a spirit and is much more dangerous and sinful than an ordinary conversation with your neighbor. The need to know, connect, familiarize, and become close with darkness is a tantalization of the devil because, after all, he desires that we all enter into his world of lies and deception.

To practice Wicca is to become entangled with a world which we were never meant to get involved. The symbolic messages of Wicca, those of enchanting and awe-inspiring power, draw us away from God, and cause us to pursue another love than He. Wicca symbolizes ordinary measures taken to superhuman lengths and is a clearly defined message of dark evils that beckon followers down a slippery slope of deception.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
