- Paganism & Witchcraft
A wave unlike any other
There is a wave flowing around the world, a wave unlike we have
ever seen. Wicca and paganism. Why is paganism and Wicca so popular?
They serve gods which are so vastly diferent from the Christian God. Some people
involved in it don’t even
realise the evil they serve, and they won’t until they move up in the
ranks of those cults.
There was a time when people who belonged to these cults would have kept
involvement secret, but not anymore. They flaunt it as if it is an
mainstream religion; then again, perhaps it has become just that.
It was only two years ago when I was doing research on the topic of pagan rituals like hallowe'en, at that time I could not find too many sites pertaining to those beliefs; however, things have changed. Now one can find websites by the hundreds or more, to sites for paganism, Wicca and even Satanism.
These sites do not outnumber Christian sites yet as I write this, but it also would not surprise me if a time came when they will.
I do not know, nor can I understand what the fascination is with the occult, and quite frankly nor do I want to know.
What one must understand is that God is real, Jesus Christ is real; and when a person dies, there is only one of two places he/she will go, either to Heaven or to Hell.This is not hatred, it is scriptual. The only way to eternal salvation and Heaven is through Jesus Christ, to accept Him as your personal Saviour. Again, not hatred but written in the bible, it is scriptual.
The problem is that the leaders of pagan/wiccan and even satanic cults will lie to people; after all, they serve the prince of lies, telling them that they will have powers, love, acceptance etc. What they don’t tell the people is the whole truth. Yes, they will accept and love the newcomers, they will even teach them satanic spells, but they will not tell them that when they die they will not go to Heaven, but to hades instead for eternity; yes, Hell is real and it ain’t no party.
There are many people who once were a part of those cults and have left, those people are now writing books and speaking to others about their involvement, and about what they were told to do during their time there. They are out warning people to stay away from those cults.
This insidious wave must be stopped, and people must be told the truth about these cults. How do we do this? There are two ways, and those ways are prayer and education. Some people will read this and laugh, and others will take it seriously, as it should be. Some will get offended because they do not understand, but this is truth, and it must be spoken.
Something to think about.
This hub is not posted so we can argue or debate the Bible or the word of God, as Gods word is not debateable. This hub is just for the purpose of educating and teaching about Gods word, as His word has and will withstand the test of time.
Here are some scriptures for you to read:
“We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
"For God so loved the world that he gave his
one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have
"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
“But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.”
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
—Romans 6:23 (NIV)
"Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the father except through me."
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If
anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with
him, and he with me.”
"That if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is
lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you
will be saved."
"Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God."
