Many people find my site because they have a loved one who is a witch – and they don’t know what to do. It’s amazing what you can learn about the needs and hurts of people by the search terms they use.
my daughter, my next door neighbor, my _______ is a witch.
It’s a plea I hear frequently. And yet one that has no easy answer. I’d love to be able to say – here are 4 steps to witnessing to a witch and that’s it! But the reasons people choose paganism or witchcraft are quite complex. And hardly one size fits all. So this topic is one we’ll have to explore slowly. One piece at a time. It’s part of why I started this blog in the first place. To help – in whatever approximation that I can. To encourage you that those trapped in paganism and witchcraft can be radically affected by the love of Christ. To challenge teens and young adults to steer clear of occultic thinking.
But at the same time, I am not going into this flippantly. When I got a chance to talk about my journey out of witchcraft on The Tyra Banks Show and becoming a Christian, I received hate mail for months from pagans who were angry about my claims. It’s really not fun to poke a hornet’s nest. But because I believe with all of my heart that witchcraft is a practice that is prohibited by God and it’s prohibited precisely because it is a dangerous, dangerous thing, I’ll keep talking about it.
And talking about it.
The fact is that most people who consider themselves witches began that journey in their teens.
It makes sense since their is the belief that true witches are drawn to the craft on their own. So teens are the most vulnerable to the deception. And frankly, there is far too much bad information out there available. So all I want to do is offer a different perspective.
So with this post, we begin.
