WITCHCRAFT (SOMEPLACE OTHER THAN THE CHURCHES FOR A CHANGE)
About a month ago, the media reported on a Wiccan priestess (witch) who delivered the daily prayer to the Iowa legislature. Wicca is a re-branding of witchcraft to make it more palatable to those who fancy themselves Christians.
A number of Christian lawmakers didn’t attend the opening ceremony to protest the priestess’ historic invocation.
Others, like State Rep. Rob Taylor (R-Iowa), turned their backs during the priestess’ prayer. Taylor said he asked himself “What would Jesus do?” and decided Jesus would “be in the presence of a prayer, but peacefully protest.” He added that “everyone has the right to come into our chamber – it is the people’s chamber – and pray and she did and this was the way for me to peacefully protest.”
Rob Taylor is deceived: Jesus would not recognize the “prayer” of a witch. A witch is someone who contacts God’s enemies to obtain power. There are those who maintain that this is not so. They are as deceived as “Christian” Rob Taylor.
But then, Rob Taylor is a politician and ungodly words which sound good to the world flow easily from the mouths of politicians.
The text of the Wiccan prayer delivered to the lawmakers follows.
“We call this morning to God, Goddess, Universe, that which is greater than ourselves to be here with us today. By the Earth that is in our bones and centers us, may all here remember our roots and those whom we are here to represent.
By the fire that gives us light and passion, may all here remain passionate about the work that must be done for the people of Iowa.
By the air that gives us breath and logic, may all here find thoughtful solutions to the problems that are presented.
By the water that flows through our blood and stirs our emotions, may all here draw on that emotional intelligence which helps us to see the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
We call this morning to Spirit, which is ever present, to help us respect the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part. Be with this legislative body and guide them to seek justice, equity and compassion in the work that is before them today.”
The best thing that can be said: at least this witchcraft didn’t take place in one of the churches.
For a change.
“Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”
[The word for “sorceries” is translated as “witchcraft” in Galatians 5:20.]

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-4
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
