WICCAN  CHURCH

Brief History:

       Wicca (English: /ˈwɪkə/), also termed Pagan Witchcraft, is a modern Pagan religion. Scholars of religion categories it as both a new religious movement and as part of the occultist stream of Western esotericism. It was developed in England during the first half of the 20th century and was introduced to the public in 1954 by Gerald Gardner, a retired British civil servant. Wicca draws upon a diverse set of ancient pagan and 20th-century hermetic motifs for its theological structure and ritual practices.

   This also called the Church of Satan 

Wicca has no central authority figure. Its traditional core beliefs, principles, and practices were originally outlined in the 1940s and 1950s by Gardner and Doreen Valiente, both in published books and in secret written and oral teachings passed along to their initiates. There are many variations on the core structure, and the religion grows and evolves over time. It is divided into a number of diverse lineages, sects and denominations, referred to as traditions, each with its own organizational structure and level of centralization. Due to its decentralized nature, there is some disagreement over what actually constitutes Wicca. Some traditions, collectively referred to as British Traditional Wicca, strictly follow the initiatory lineage of Gardner and consider the term Wicca to apply only to similar traditions, but not to newer, eclectic traditions.

Wicca is typically duotheistic, worshipping, and/or working with a Goddess and a God. These are traditionally viewed as the Triple Goddess (Neopaganism) and the Horned God, respectively. These deities may be regarded in a henotheistic way, as having many different divine aspects which can in turn be identified with many diverse pagan deities from different historical pantheons. For this reason, they are sometimes referred to as the "Great Goddess" and the "Great Horned God", with the adjective "great" connoting a deity that contains many other deities within their own nature. Some Wiccans refer to the goddess deity as the "Lady" and the god deity as the "Lord"; in this context, when "lord" and "lady" are used as adjectives, it is another way of referring to them as a divine figure. These two deities are sometimes viewed as facets of a greater pantheistic divinity, which is regarded as an impersonal force or process rather than a personal deity. While duotheism or bitheism is traditional in Wicca, broader Wiccan beliefs range from polytheism to pantheism or monism, even to Goddess monotheism.

Wiccan celebrations encompass both the cycles of the Moon, known as Esbats and commonly associated with the Goddess (female deity), and the cycles of the Sun, seasonally based festivals known as Sabbats and commonly associated with the Horned God (male deity). An unattributed statement known as the Wiccan Rede is a popular expression of Wiccan morality, although it is not universally accepted by Wiccans. Wicca often involves the ritual practice of magic, though it is not always necessary.

 

 

                      

1. Creeds

   Willow’s worldview is called Wicca, which is a loosely organized set of beliefs that are rooted in mystical traditions, including but not limited to Celtic or Norse paganism, Greek and Roman goddess worship, ancient Egyptian spirituality, Eastern Shamanism, or even Native American spiritual practices, depending on the group. Willow was attracted to Wicca because of the strong connection she felt with the world around her and in particular with nature. Willow is generally tolerant of other religions, but she does not welcome anyone trying to ‘convert’ her.

2. Questions You Can Ask

  • What’s your spiritual background?

  • What’s the one thing that you like the most about your Wiccan beliefs?

  • Have you ever had a supernatural or paranormal experience?

  • Do you believe there are good spirits and evil spirits?

  • Do you ever talk about your beliefs with others who see things the same way or do you feel pretty isolated when it comes to your religion?

  • Have you ever been mocked or rejected for being a Wiccan by those who claimed to be Christians?

  • What do you think happens after we die?

  • Who do you think Jesus was?

  • What do you think of Jesus’ claim that He was God and the way back to God?

  • Has anyone ever explained the gospel to you?

3.     Areas You Can Admire 

 Willow’s desire to develop a spiritual view of life.

Willow’s deep respect for life and nature.

Willow’s belief in a supreme being.

Willow’s desire to think for herself.

4.       What Willow Believes

Willow and other Wiccans vary in their beliefs, but the majority of them would hold to the eight beliefs listed below:

  • Everyone has the divine (or goddess) within, and everyone has a ‘life-force’.

  • One should develop natural gifts for divination or occult magic (often spelled ‘magic’ by occultists.)

  • Divine forces or nature spirits are invoked in rituals.

  • The Goddess, as either a symbol or a real entity, is the focus of worship.

  • Nature and the earth are sacred manifestations of the Goddess.

  • Everyone has his or her own individual spiritual path to follow.

  • Rituals and celebrations are linked to the seasons and moon phases.

  • Meditation, visualization, invocation (calling on forces or gods/goddesses), chanting, burning candles and special rituals trigger a sense of the mystical, which typically reinforces their core belief system.

6.        About the Bible:

 Willow doesn’t believe in absolute truth but she considers the Bible a good book that she can pick and choose things from to help her follow her spiritual path.

7.        About the Afterlife:

  Willow believes in an endless cycle of reincarnation (birth-death-birth-death, etc.) and karma (what you do here affects you in the next life). She does not believe in heaven or hell.

8.        About Salvation: 

  Willow does not believe in sin or a need for forgiveness, so she doesn’t see a need for salvation. In her mind, being ‘saved’ would be to reach a point where one is free from the reincarnation/karma cycle.

 1.  The world is full of false religion and the church of satan is no exception. Isn't amazing that people who claim to love God have no problem that wears the name of satan. People understand that names matter but when they see the name church of Christ they do not understand that this bible name uplifts and points to Jesus Christ. (Matthew 16:18; Romans 16:16-17). This Church that wears the name of satan is truly not too different from others that do not believe that names make any difference. Most of their names and practices to point or acknowledge Christ and His Word. 

 

 

 

2. It is very important to ask questions when anyone come to you claiming to profess God or even "god". 

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear;

3.  Things to Remember

  • Like Tara the Typical, Willow is extremely sensitive toward anything that sounds intolerant and/or judgmental, so approach with extreme caution! As well, she sees Christianity as an oppressive religion, so be sure and show her love and respect.

  • Ask Willow what she believes about Christianity, because she might have a distorted image of what Christianity is. Try and use this as an opportunity to help her develop a correct understanding of true Christianity.

  • Don’t confuse Wiccans with witches, because anyone can practice witchcraft, but Wiccans follow a strict code. Also, don’t confuse Wiccans with Satanists, because most Wiccans don’t believe in Satan or the devil.

  • Outline the strengths and reliability of the Bible (accuracy, consistency, fulfilled prophecy, etc.) because Willow rejects it as unreliable.

  • Stress your personal relationship with the Father through Jesus Christ and what impact that has on your daily life.

  • Whether Willow knows it or not, she is in the grips of Satan, so like Sid the Satanist, be sure and cover your relationship and conversations with her in a ton of prayer.

.1. James 2:17:Faith without works is dead.

 2. James 2:18: Faith shown by works. 

 3. James 2:19: Faith alone characterizes devils 

 4. James 2:24,26: Faith only not enough.

 5. Galatians 5:6     Faith working through love.

 6. Mark 16:16:   Faith plus baptism equals salvation

 7. Read Hebrews 11:  Faith in ACTION avails not just saying you have faith. 

6. . About the Bible:

The Bible alone is the word of God and is absolute truth. It is without error. It cannot and should not be added to or subtracted from (2 Timothy 3:16-4:4; Revelation 22:18-20), and it is also the ultimate authority on spiritual matters. Every word of it is inspired by God, so you can’t just pick and choose what you ‘think’ is true.

7. About the Afterlife:

Those who trust in Christ alone as their only hope of salvation spend eternity in heaven; those who reject Christ spend an eternity in hell (John 5:24-30; Revelation 20:11-15). The Bible denies the concept of reincarnation (Hebrews 9:27-28).

8. About Salvation:

All people are sinners in need of forgiveness (Romans 3:23). Salvation is by faith in Christ ALONE on the basis of His death on the cross. (John 3:16 -17, 36; 6:29 ,47; Romans 4:1-5; Galatians 2:16; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5)
