According to the person I recently received this Email from over at the Skeptic Tank, "the following is the text of a site that was recently removed form both castles.com and Geocities because it was so hateful. I figure you'll get a kick out of it and possibly feature it on your site as evidence of Fundie ignorance. I also have some correspondence with the man (who is obviously not home if you know what I mean; he said I wasn't a real witch because I didn't have red hair.) if you'd be interested in seeing them. Sorry I can't give you the eerie music effects that once accompanied the site. If you find this a waste of time and bandwith I apologize."
(Apologies for keeping this person's identity secret and for cutting some of her remarks above.)
It's funny (I've rolled in the aisles on this one too much recently) but it's also suspect, since I don't know the person who sent it, and don't have InterNet access so I can check on it. It's so obviously wrong about things Wiccan and Satanic that there's no need to even debunk it, in my estimation.
WICCA & SATANISM & THE WAY OUT
By Cohen G. Reckart, Pastor
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first Commandment (Mark 12:30).
Wicca & Satanism are *sister* religions that usurp worship away from God and directs it toward the worship of satan. The devil wants a person's Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength. He will use whatever devise and trick he can to fulfill his will. Wicca & Satanism are *sisters* of the left hand path whose coven gates lead down to hell. Wicca & Satanism are both cults joined in the same rituals to such a degree it is hard to separate them one from the other. They both are sisters of other cruel and bloody groups all over the world. They identify themselves as *free-thinkers or free-spirits* when their minds are closed to Jesus and their souls are in bondage to the *horned one*, the devil.
The rituals of the Wicca & Satanic religions are symbolic of the female having sex with the devil in the person of her lover, her fornicator and this is supposed to represent the two opposites in nature. It matters not what the rituals are or the oaths taken, a person in these cults have discharged the true God and placed lucifer (the horned one) on a snake throne as a god. The god of this world (lucifer), has blinded their minds so that these usually never find a place of repentance (2Cor 4:4). It is not the blood oaths, the sexual orgies, the blasphemies, or even the curses a person does while in these cults that damns their soul. What damns them is that in their mind they reject Jesus as Saviour and his blood for the remission of sins. A person will go to hell and spend eternity in the Lake of Fire for rejecting the blood of Jesus before they will be judged on their other sins. Obviously, the whole bottom line of Wicca & Satanism are to alter a person's mind to such a degree that they never repent by faith, never receive water baptism by faith in the name of Jesus Christ, and they are never born of the Spirit of God.
Alas, Wicca & Satanism are religions of damnation and few escape from the horrors of these cults. In fact many enter Wicca & Satanism confess they desire to be damned with lucifer and to spend eternity in hell. This is usually a confession based upon addiction to sexual orgie permitted uncondemned in the coven. Many in Wicca and Satanism have a profane hunger to engage in sex acts. All men and women, boys and girls in Wicca & Satanism are without doubt sexual attracted to these cult gatherings as an excuse for that debauchery and outside the covens consent of it in open society (If it harms no one, you can do it *their sister creed*).
In the years between 1985 and 1997 there have been Wicca & Satanic occult killings in America. Yet the police do nothing to expose this cult, and play down the satanism connections and often not mentioned at all. Is it because there are policemen in Wicca & Satanism? Is it because judges are in Wicca & Satanism? Is it because there are lawyers and doctors in Wicca? The answer is YES! Nearly every high school in America now has an operating coven. Nearly every County and Township in America has its Coven, sometimes acting doubly as the Masonic Lodge. Many large hospitals, junior colleges, universities, military schools, military bases, and news media (television, radio, & news papers, magazines) have covens. That is why they push the occult, the obscene, and glorify sexual apostasy. Why is the headquarters of USA military called the *Pentagon?* Why is Washington, D.C. laid out in occult street patterns? Why is the USA Capitol the *eye* of lucifer? Why is the pentagram used to represent states on the USA flag? Are there not subtle occult powers at work behind the scenes to embody luciferian religion upon America? Is not the Washington Monument an erection of the male sex organ in wicca and in the occult?
Those who join Wicca & Satanism follow either the Gardnerian or the Alexandrian schools of thought. The rituals may be Druidic, Celtic, Dianic, Saxonic, Kabbalah (Keys of Solomon), traditional witchcraft, or a mixture of whatever the goddess of the coven chooses. According to a witch in Orland, Florida the world is divided into five houses of witchcraft with each house having dominion over its own region. These regions are said to correspond nearly with the same divisions as the Rosicrucians, Freemasonry, and Kaballah. There are 32 paths in Wicca & Satanism and there are also 32 paths in the Rosicrucian, Freemasonry, and Kaballah mysteries. The oaths of Wicca & Satanism are said to be the same as that in those also named above and add to that the blood oath taken in Mormonism. Wicca & Satanism rests not only upon a mixture of nature worship, satanism, and sexual apostasy; it also rest entirely upon the mysteries in the Kaballah, so that without the foundation of the Kaballah, Wicca & Satanism are reduced to mere sexual symbolism and profanity by men and women with unrestrained lust and unchristian perversion.
Wicca & Satanism must first be introduced to the mind of a person. So the mind becomes the first target of lucifer and his demons. Usually a person is overcome with sexual perversion and desires for a way to make these dreams and hopes come true. The individual will then began to search for sexual books and or any information where these perversions are practiced. In recent years this may be found in public libraries and now on the internet. So, those entertaining perversion will fill their mind with these books and web sites until the next event in the apostasy takes place. The spirit of the individual begins to perform these upon themselves and they start babbling in witchcraft, all the while seeking that one person who can lead them further in their quest of evil. First the mind then their body. When the individual makes contact with a coven, it is at this time their spirit (heart) is taken captive and with oaths of blood, ...the Mind, Body, Heart (Spirit), are sealed to lucifer and to witchcraft. Only two items remain, that of a person's Life and their Soul. The life segment is taken one day at a time until the whole is consumed and at the end, when death comes, the individual has lost their Soul. Jesus said it well, *What does it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his soul?* There is hope. By invoking the name of Jesus in water baptism (Acts 4:12), all satanic oaths are broken and all curses cast down harmless (Eph 6:16).
The final solution of Wicca & Satabism is not heaven, not salvation, not joy or peace, for Wicca & Satanism cannot produce these things. The final achievement of Wicca & Satanism is a lost soul entering into eternity never to be saved, banished by God to the Lake of Fire to be tormented for ever with their master the devil. And make no mistake about it, those who are really into the branches of satanism are the very ones who justify God for making an eternal Lake of Fire. Why? Because any person who would sacrifice a baby, a child, a young girl or boy, a man or a woman, deserves the Lake of Fire. And God is happy to give them what they deserve. I would dare say, that anyone who participates in the sacrifice of a human being is damned and can never be saved. Many who have joined the sisters of satanism for sex, drugs, the parties, have also been called upon to participate in a human sacrifices.
I have met people who say they have been at these rituals where there were human sacrifices. It was told to me by an ex-witch from Orlando, Florida that in Wicca, everyone believes in reincarnation and are largely environmentalist and head up those groups all across America and the world. She reports that satanist believing in reincarnation have no mental reservation to offer human sacrifices as the members of the Coven think they are rewarding the victim for bad karma and these will be reincarnated again. So, it is not like those sacrificed will not get a second or perhaps more chances to be saved or reach nirvanna.
The Wicca oath:
I will ever conceal and never reveal, any arts, parts, or points of the hidden mysteries under no less penalty than that of having my throat cut across, my tongue torn out by its roots, and my body buried in the rough sands of the sea where the tide ebbs and flows twenty four hours a day.
This oath may be altered by the witch or the sister of satanism to words of like kind and may be made shorter or more added to it. This is also the oath of Masonry in its Entered Apprentice or First Degree. It is also the First Degree and Entered Apprentice oath of Mormonism in their Aaronic Priesthood.
Eventually those in Wicca, Satanism, Freemasonry, and Mormonism become shells without life. Speak to them of Jesus and the way of salvation in Acts 2:38 while looking into their eyes, and you can not help but notice that no one is home. The body is vacant. The man-stealer has been to this tabernacle and the soul snatcher has gone his way. What is left is the fool of the tarot. An aurora of darkness surrounds them. Many become schizophrenic. They have a disintegration of personality. They become manic-depressive and violent on an instants notice. They can smile one moment and be in a rage the next. They can be loving one second and the next become a murderer. They day-dream and become detached from reality. These cannot determine at times if they are in real life or in a dream. Cult experiences short-circuits normal brain waves and a sign is pacing, always fidgety, talking to one's self, and seeing hallucinations. And then they lose their minds. Many become recluses and dress drabby.
The typical witch will dye her hair red for all true witches have red hair, symbolic of Isis who was figured in Egypt with red hair and in the red heifer her sacred image (if she does not dye her hair red if it is not red, she is only a pretend witch). This does not mean all beautiful red heads are witches, it means the occult gives them a demonic image and they of all people should protest. Over time many begin to withdraw and shut out the world. And at the end these all die lonely, eyes sunken, ashen faces, forsaken of their lovers, their sexual perversions and memories of the past no longer enjoyable. Many kill others and themselves to end their tormented and demented lives. Wicca & Satanism do not always end in fun and games as they start out. Many become hells unlike any other living torment on earth. Like everything else lucifer touches, he corrupts and ruins until a person, a religion, a doctrine, a teaching is worthless, reprobate, and unwanted by God (Rom 1:22-32).
Wicca & Satanism like all cult religions are designed through ritual and the craft to rule over a person's mind, body, spirit, life, and soul, until all are perverted and destroyed. They come to believe in the *Macrocosm and the Microcosm* as above so below, and as in the natural so in the spiritual. A person in this religion will decorate their homes, yards, bedrooms with satanic emblems, wear these symbols as jewelry for good luck and protection. The witch can signal her identity with a ring on her index finger and will wear rings on several or all of her fingers to hide this. The satanic books inform us that witches were the first women to wear men's pants in medieval times Deut 22:5: "Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc), "The Maid of Orleans," was a Pucelle or High Priestess of the Wicca, and was condemned to death for what she was, one of the strongest accusations being that she wore men's clothing, a thing at that time done only by witches" (see The Alex Sanders Lectures p12). These emblems were a form of rebellion (witchcraft see 1Sam 15:23) against the Bible, the Church, Pastors, against God, Jesus Messiah, and Christians. To give a sign of this reprobation, a secret mark was placed on their bodies in a hidden place as a sign (should anyone need to inspect for verification) proving that the person had sold their soul to the devil (called the devil's mark). Wicca & Satanism produce nothing lovely, beautiful, or holy according to the Christian tradition of men and women. They destroy the loveliness of submission to Christ and turn rebellion to the Scriptures into a despicable loathsome unpleasant worthlessness. Beauty becomes ugly and gaudy. And what was holy becomes so profane that animlas have better morals and self worth than these confessed pagan worshipers (2Pet 2:10-15).
Once the five points of Mind, Body, Spirit, Life, and Soul are fully surrendered to lucifer to be at his command (the lord of shadows, the horned one) there is nothing a person in Wicca & Satanism will not do. Some have kill their own children, brothers and sisters, mothers and dads, friends and strangers. Currently (1998) there are over fifty killings tied in one form or another to satanism in the news in the USA, with the targets being mothers and fathers and friends at school. It is reporte that one youth killed his coven lover and shot several more students. Another youth killed his mother and father as a means to obtain power with lucifer the horned god and then he also went to school and shot other kids. In the cults, no greater sacrifice can a devotee perform to the devil than to kill one's mother or ones self. And many will do this once their minds are fully demented.
The goddess is the chief authority in the coven taken after the idea that she is a representative of mother earth (nature), who is herself the great witch and the great mother who sustains life and determines the sexual regeneration of all natural species. She is Semiramus; Ishtar;, Ashtoreth; Astarte; Tannuit ...Tanit, or Annuit (her symbol was the pyramid how did she get on the back of our dollar bill with the eye of Baal or lucifer?), Artemis; Aphrodite; Diana; Venus; Athena; Cerridwen; Arianrhod; Isis; the Moon goddess; the Great Whore; the Great Mother; Mother Earth or Nature; and transposed in the fertility cults of Baal and as the wife of a god using the hex as her symbol of sexual perversion and her CROWN. In the book of Revelation she also comes to represent Israel the great whore of God who became the consort of Baal and the devil and that is why God divorced her (Jer 3:8). Is that not how the hex and pentagram became associated with Israel and called the *star of your god Remphan* in Acts 7:43, that got Stephen killed? The great whore has many other names in the nations of the world where Wicca is called by different names but the same mysteries and the same rituals and oaths.
The Wicca coven is opposite the Biblical pattern of a Patriarchal monotheistic system. That is, in the Bible the highest authority is the male and that there is one God. In the Bible the male is the leader of the family and he is symbolic of the one God of the creation. Thus, the Biblical pattern is opposite that within Wicca and satanism. In witchcraft the female is the highest authority and there are many gods and powers. Wicca is by evidence an anti-Biblical religion and they confess they do not believe in or follow the God of the Bible. One Wiccian called Jesus a bastard and said his mother was a whore. Those in Wicca are taught to be antichristian in beliefs. Thus each person converted is made an antichrist and this somehow is supposed to obtain for the person special powers with the devil.
Wicca is a cult with secret oaths, secret meetings, and secret members who are given secret names. witchcraft is worship of the human body, nakedness, sexual orgie, and results in loss of self respect, self esteem, and self worth. Sacrifices of human blood are offered to obtain power. Demon possession and loss of respect for Christian life happens to most in Wicca. In Witchcraft Drugs, mental deception, hate, rage, amnesia, multiple personalities, fantasy role playing (dungeons and dragons), along with rituals are all written in a diary or a book of shadows.
Wicca is a branch of Mystery Babylon although a witch writes to me telling me it is a modern invention incorporating several ideas from several religions. It is a substitute religion to Christianity that brings humanity into bondage of it own brand of satanism. A hierarchy of powers in the coven resemble the hierarchy or powers in other ancient cult religions. Ancient but evil (child sacrifices, sacrifice of men and women). The craft of Wicca and satanism today descends from the Baal religion of the Bible, except Baal and Semiramus are replaced with the symbols of the Hex and the Pentagram. The Hex is the symbol of sexual union of the male and the female in the great rite.
Our belief is that Wicca is satanic. The destruction of all satanism is with the coming of Jesus. The antichrist who sets up in Jerusalem in the Temple will be a high priest of lucifer. The devil will give him his seat (Rev 13:10), his snake throne, and great authority; and then there will be no mistake in the minds of the Believers in that day who the great whore is for she will be identified with the hex and embodied in it will be 666. All who take the hex will have the symbol of the antichrist kingdom. The kingdom of darkness is to be destroyed and all who are in it to be cast into eternal punishment forever. The great deception that the devil will win is seen to be the great lie of witchcraft. Darth Vader will not be saved. He will not be redeemed. He will not be converted. There is no salvation for the arc-enemy of God and man. He is guilty of every gross iniquity and he shall be damned. Read the back of the Bible (Rev 20:10) hallelujeh! The devil will be cast alive into the lake of fire. A damnation he deserves! All the babies will be vindicated and avenged. All those murdered and sacrificed avenged. All the death, pain, sickness, misery and poverty, will be avenged upon satanil, his demons, and his worshipers.
Deliverance From Wicca
A person can be delivered from Wicca and satanism. The first step is to renounce the devil and all oaths with a prayer partner. Do not have anything to do with old friends who were or are in the cult. Clean out your home, your car, everything you own of all satanic items. Seek out an Apostolic Church and go for the purpose of being set free and to get your soul saved. When the Minister gives the invitation go forward and kneel before the true God and confess your sins. Ask the Pastor to baptize you in the name of Jesus Messiah (Acts 2:38). For when he does this, all your sins are forgiven and placed under the blood of Jesus. As he plunges you under in the name of Jesus, all oaths made to the devil and all satanic covenants are abolished and become null and void. Do not give up this conversion until you receive the promise of Holy Spirit baptism. The Pastor will explain what being born again of water and Spirit (John 3:3-5) means. When your soul has been cleansed and you have broken clean of the devil's religion, shout with the joy of triumph. You are now on the journey of Aliyeh (Return to God). When you have the gift of eternal life, no man can take this from you. The only way to lose it, is to deny Jesus and his blood and return to sin and the devil's kingdom.
Good news: Many have been saved who were once in and who dabbled in Wicca, Freemasonry, the Kabbalah, Witchcraft, and the Asian religions of India, Tibet, China, and Japan. Time is crucial to these conversions however. The individual must be reached before they have lost their minds and have crossed the point of no return. Remember, these souls are victims of abuse by the devil. He wants no one to love them or care for them. But Jesus loves and cares. If he did not, he would not have given the Christian Believer the compassion and the power to deliver these taken captive, by use of his name, and by the power of the Holy Spirit. There is hope, there is healing. While we dislike Wicca for the horror it works upon the souls of men and women, boys and girls, we love these victims and our prayer is that they will escape while they are still able to and live out the rest of their lives in true joy and peace in the Holy Spirit.
Dear Jesus, I come to you today on behalf of those whom the devil is trying to deceive. I ask Lord that you frustrate the devil and his demons. That if there is someone who wants to be free of this spirit of Wicca and satanism, that you will lead them right this moment from death to life and from evil to good. I pray Lord Jesus that you break the yokes of sin and evil from these souls and that you give them hope. In the name of Jesus Messiah I take authority over all spirits and bind them. I command these unclean spirits to leave and never return. I command them to torment this person no more. Now Jesus I pray a blood covering over this soul until they are safe in salvation and in a Church family who will love them. I ask Lord that you open doors for this soul and that you lead them as a Shepherd. With love you have saved us, now with your love protect this sister or brother and give them peace. In the name of Jesus Messiah, AMEN!
