I am a witchcraft practitioner and i was wondering if it was like devil worship or paganism. I am NOT a devil worshiper. I am christian but would just like to know the truth as to why everyone says witchcraft is evil. Also, is paganism devil worship?

  • To your first question: No, Paganism is in no way devil worship. Paganism is an umbrella term for many religions that are Earth and nature based. If they believe in deity, most Pagans worship old nature gods or gods of a specific pantheon, like the Greek, Roman, Egyptian, etc. Paganism includes Wiccans, Asatruar, Hellenics, and many other re-constructionalist or nature-based paths. For the most part, Pagans don’t even believe in the devil. You can’t worship something in which you don’t believe.

    To your second question: Again, no. Witches are not all Pagans. Witchcraft is a craft, and is not affiliated with any religion. Witch comes from the Anglo-Saxon word wicce which means wise one, so witchcraft is the craft of the wise. Whether you want to practice witchcraft while being Christian or not is up to you. I guess it would depend on your interpretation of the Bible and whether or not you believe that God gives power to witches or not.

    To the third question: First, not everyone says witchcraft is evil, just fundamental Bible thumpers. They say that it’s evil because of a mistranslation in the Bible that should say “Thou shalt not suffer a poisoner to live” but actually says witch instead of poisoner. King James wanted his translation of the Bible to more openly condemn witchcraft, and since his is the most common translation of the Bible, people take it too literally. Witchcraft isn’t evil; it’s simply the practice of directing your energies to influence the world. A spell is just a form of prayer. I hope that helps.
    Venus Bless.
