Wicca

 

 

Wicca, like Islam, doesn’t claim to be Christian as the Mormon and Jehovah’s Witness religions do.  I have included Wicca because it is considered by some to be the fastest growing religion among young people and especially girls. The following description is from the referenced link, and gives some of the reasons for its growth: 

    

“Wicca is a fast growing religion.  Some have said that it is the fastest growing religion in America.  Whether or not that is true, the fact remains that the number one source of numbers in the Wiccan ranks, are the young.”

“In our postmodern world where moral absolutes are disparaged and truth statements are doubted, Wicca fits right in. It offers a subjective religious experience that is aided by your own invention.  Wicca is the religion of nature worship, of gods and goddesses, of spells and incantations designed to bring influence upon circumstances and/or people.”

“Youth sometimes get lost in that transition between childhood and adulthood, and often do not know what direction to go to find truth and meaning.  But this does not stop them from trying.  They seek to identify with groups, music, causes, and philosophies. It helps to give them purpose, meaning, and identity.  So too with Wicca.  It is a world religion based upon ancient agrarian religious belief out of northern Europe that allows them to cater their beliefs and practices to their own desires.  How satisfying!  Think about it.  There is an attraction to the idea that you can construct a religious system that suits your preferences and use that system to gain control and influence.  That is why many of the youth of today are joining up with it.”

The following last link is not a Christian website, but the article shows the impression some Christians have left on the author of this article and some of those who have commented.  This is a good reminder to all of us how important our character is and the negative impression we will leave with others when we exhibit characteristics considered by others to be non-Christian.  I think it is also a good example showing how others will be less open to considering the truths of Christianity if they feel we’ve been disrespectful to beliefs they hold to be true.  Something tells me that the Christians the author references weren’t using questions similar to those in the Tactics section.
