What is Wicca? It's stregoneria?

Wicca is a religion neopagana which is growing in popularity in the United States and Europe. There are many websites and books that claim to teach the “vera” Wicca, but the truth is, there is no consensus among Wiccans about what religion is. The reason for this is that the Wicca, as it is practiced now, it only has about 50 years. Wicca is a belief system that the British Gerald Gardner he cobbled together in the 1940s and 1950s from a variety of religious traditions and beliefs, as well as freemason rituals. Since Gardner has published several books espousing his cult system, many offshoots and variants of Wicca have arisen.
Some Wiccans are polytheists, they worship more than one deity, while others just love the “It gave” o to “Dea”. Still other Wiccans worship and call to nature Gea, from the Greek goddess of the earth. Some Wiccans pick and choose parts of Christian doctrine to embrace, while others totally reject Christianity. Most practitioners of Wicca believe in reincarnation.
Most Wiccans will vehemently deny that Satan be part of their pantheon, citing major doctrinal differences between them and Satanists. Wiccans generally promote moral relativity, disdaining labels such as “good” e “male” e “right” O “wrong”. Wicca has a law or rule, call Network: “do what you want, do no harm to anyone”. At first sight, the Rede feels like a complete and uninhibited personal license. You can do what you want, as long as no one gets hurt; however, Wiccans are quick to point out that the ripple effect of one's actions can have far-reaching consequences. They articulate this principle in the Triple Law, that says: “All the good that one person does to another returns triple in this life; damage is also tripled”.

A major factor contributing to the enduring appeal of Wicca is the purported use of spells e Magic (a deliberate misspelling intended to separate Wiccas from magicians and illusionists). Curiosity seekers, as well as i spiritual neophytes, they are eager to delve into these mysteries. Not all Wiccans practice witchcraft, but those who claim that magic is to them what prayer is to a Christian. The difference between the two is that Wiccans claim that magic is simply using their mind to control matter, or they appeal to their favorite deity to do them a favor, as Christians call upon an omnipotent and omnipresent God to heal people and intervene and work in their lives. The Rede prevents witches from hurting others and the Triple Law explains the consequences for Rede-breakers.

Wicca is basically a religion that is about minding your own business and living peacefully with your neighbors and the environment. Wiccans are eager to plot parallels between themselves and biblical Christianity to gain credibility, but what does the Bible have to say about this religion? You will not find the word “wicca” in the Bible, then we evaluate the beliefs in the light of what God says about them.

Wiccan spells are idolatry – Romans 1:25 dice:
“They traded God's truth for a lie, they worshiped and served created things, rather than the Creator…” Who wants settle for second best?
In Isaiah 40, God paints a picture of how much the Creator is greater than His creation. If you are worshiping anything besides the Creator, you're not just spinning the wheels, you are guilty of idolatry.
Wiccan spells carry False hopes. Jews 9:27 dice:
“… Man is destined to die once, after that, to face judgment”. God says we have one chance in life, stop. There are no substitutions. If we do not accept Jesus' gift of God during our lifetime, He judges us as unwilling to be in His presence and we are sent to hell.
Wiccan spells carry disillusionment. Marco 7:8 dice:
“You have let go of God's commands and are holding on to the traditions of men”.
God is God, ask for. We have a decision to make. We will take God at His word and adopt His worldview, o no? Knowing God requires a lot of discipline. Wicca is a religion that takes a lot of lies, he ties it into a romantic ribbon and looks for a well-meaning brand, but lazy and gullible to sell his false doctrines.
Deuteronomy 18:10-12 dice:
“Let no one be among you who… you practice divination or witchcraft, portents interpreters, engage in sorcery or do spells… Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD…”
Wicca witchcraft is a sin, and God hates him. Why? Because it is an attempt to cut our dependence on God and get separate answers from Him.

Sin is not just a heinous and socially objectionable action. Sin is our decision to disagree with God on any subject, to rebel against him. Sin is saying: “It gave, I want to live my life my way”. Romans 3:23 dice:

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. Romans 6:23 dice: “For the wages of sin is death…”

This is not bodily death, this is spiritual death: eternal separation from God and all the blessings His presence brings. This is the definition of hell: the absence of God's presence. This is what our sin earns us.

Fortunately, Romans 6:23 it does not end here. Continue saying:

“… but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”.

God knew 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. Wiccan witchcraft is just another lie from Satan, the enemy of our souls, who "goes about like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour" ( 1 Pietro 5:8 ).
