12 thoughts on “Why is the Wiccan religion judged by so many people?

  1. Wicca 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.

    Wiccan spells bring false hope. Hebrews 9:27 says, “…Man is destined to die once, after that, to face judgment.” God says we get one chance at life, and that is it. There are no do-overs. If we don’t accept God’s gift of Jesus in our lifetime, He judges us as unwilling to be in His presence, and we are sent to hell.

    Wiccan spells bring disillusionment. Mark 7:8 says, “You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men.” God is God, and we are not. We have a decision to make. Are we going to take God at His word and adopt His worldview, or are we not? Knowing God takes a lot of discipline. Wicca is a religion that takes a pack of lies, ties it in a romantic ribbon, and searches out a well-intentioned, but lazy and gullible mark to sell its hollow doctrines.

    Deuteronomy 18:10-12 says, “Let no one be found among you who… practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells…Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD…” Wicca witchcraft is a sin and God hates it. Why? Because it is an attempt to cut off our dependence on God and get answers apart from Him.

    Sin isn’t just a heinous, socially disagreeable action. Sin is our decision to disagree with God on any topic—to rebel against Him. Sin is saying, “God, I want to live my life my way.” Romans 3:23 says, “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death…” This isn’t bodily death, this is spiritual death: eternal separation from God and all the blessings that His presence brings. This is the definition of hell: the absence of God’s presence. That is what our sin gains for us.

    Thankfully, Romans 6:23 doesn’t end there. It goes on to say, “…but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” God knew that we would all rebel in one way or another, and he provided a way for us to avoid that separation—through faith in Jesus Christ. Wicca witchcraft is nothing more than another lie from Satan, the enemy of our souls, who “prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8).

  2. answer: ignore the ignorant rant by narrow minded fundamentalists

    Some common pagan beliefs (not all pagan religions believe these): reincarnation * karma * harming none * multiple deities (male and female) * a reverence for life and nature * celebrating the cycle of life and the year with holidays and full moons *

    Things pagans don’t believe in: the devil * hell * a savior * a deity that condemns someone for eternity for not believing in him

  3. I think the thing is
    1. It’s new
    2. There really isn’t much definitive out there. I mean, certain covens that are Gardnerian British Traditional Covens may have one way, but the proliferation makes it hard to say anything “fixed” about the religion.
    3. The usual stereotypes/prejudices about witchcraft
    4. The teenage girls. Seriously I’ve met Wiccans who are level headed and have families, but the “fluffy bunny emos” give their religion a certain uhm… stereotype.

  4. Witchcraft is part of the religious behavior of Wicca.

    66% of the world is part of an Abrahamic Religion.

    The God of Abraham is attributed to hate Witches, witchcraft, and other religions.

    Ergo, 66% of the world is told to hate it without knowing much, if anything about it, before it’s members can explain what it is.

  5. Its like going to a football game and finding the players “worshipping” the football instead of the coach.

  6. “Wiccan” involves demons, whether a person wants to admit that, or not.

    Demons ALWAYS mean harm, destruction, and death to people. And only JESUS can stop demons.

    Jesus is God, and Jesus loves you so very much! 😀

    Salvation is a FREE GIFT that happens in a split second when you believe in Jesus alone to save you! It is impossible to lose or “leave” salvation (John 6:39-40, 1 John 5:13).

    The truth about Jesus is that the only way to be saved and to get into heaven and avoid being sent to eternal hell, is by believing in faith alone that Jesus, who is God, died on the cross for all our sins as FULL PAYMENT for all our sins, and then Jesus rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Believe in Jesus alone for salvation, and you will be in heaven, no matter what!

    Please pray now: “Jesus, please forgive me of my sins. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and You rose from the dead. Thank You for eternal life!” You will be in heaven with Him forever when you die. 🙂

  7. I think its because it shows the equality of males and females, the churches at the time couldn’t handle that and made Paganism in general Evil. When Wicca was discovered, it scared people because it was so secretive. Now that its in the open, people fear it because they think they’ll get cursed (which isn’t the case) so they begin to hate it and get others to as well.

  8. Peiople enjoy making fun of new, minority religions. Wicca certainly isn’t the only one. There’s also a lot of misconceptions about it, some of which really is the fault of early Wiccans who described themselves as “witches” and then got all snooty insisting no one knew what that word really meant except them. They made up a new dinfition, and then when people used the old, established definition, they’d declare that their “persecutors” were being unreasonable!

  9. People fear what they don’t understand. Especially when a lot of people are under the impression that Wiccanism is a satanic religion, which it is not.

    It’s actually a very interesting religion. It’s more spiritualistic than it is theistic, similar to how Buddhism is. I can’t tell you the specifics, but I believe that their belief system consists of a masculine and feminine god/goddess, but it has less do to with worship than it does with spiritual discovery and healing.

    Another reason people tend to fear Wiccanism is their use of witchcraft as people often associate witchcraft with Satan, though it is not a satanic practice at heart.

    As long as Wiccanism remains a minor religion it will always be feared and judged by many ignorant people who would rather go off stereotypes than facts.

  10. It’s easier to badmouth something they don’t understand or choose not to understand than take 5 minutes to read what it’s truly about.

    It’s called “Willful Ignorance” of something that has so much easily-accessable information within the reach of the fingertips.

  11. Because people are often taught to fear that which they do not understand and it is even worse with religion because a lot of the Abramic churches teach the notion that “if you are not with us, you are against us.” Yes a lot of Wiccans call themselves Witches (there is a difference). And yes you do tend to find the stereotypical goth teen that professes to be a High Priestess of Wicca that is a Nth generation witch but all in all many of the misconceptions are caused by a fringe group of outspoken individuals. Not all Wiccans are teen fluffy bunnies, just like not all Christians are bible thumpers and not all Muslims are terrorists.

    There are a lot of people who would see religion taught in school, I would prefer if religious tolerance was taught in school.

    Blessed Be )O(

  12. There are a couple of reasons.
    1. As a religion grows, it comes into the public consciousness, and people make judgements on it. This has happened in recent decades with religions like Wicca and (unrelated) Scientology.

    2. There are people (like above) who believe any religion that isn’t their own is evil. These people can’t see the forest through the trees of their pride. They are so full of themselves they think they have the corner on good, and the billions who go to other churches, follow other religions, are blind or have evil intentions.
