    But when we read the Bible, we see that even children can be demon possessed. Nothing is said at how they became possessed. Yet, Jesus was able to set them free. There was a man born blind, yet Jesus healed Him. I see someone claiming to have natural psychic ability as a partial influence of something demonic upon that person. In other words, the enemy can influence humans to believe certain things or to see things; Especially if those people are involved in the occult in some way.

    But Jesus is the light of this world; He came into this world to save mankind and to shine out the darkness.
    I believe God can open people's eyes to the truth.

    This is not in my timing, but in God's timing.
    I just plant seeds, and another waters;
    But is it God that gives the increase.

    May you and your family be blessed in the Lord.

    Except they are not unexplainable. What causes you to believe that? God moves man through the power of the Holy Spirit.

    So what witchcraft do you believe is occurring in the church?

    Do you have some examples?

    There are a lot of drugs, like properly used antibiotics--that do actually resolve the cause.

    What is the "Christian form" of witchcraft they were practicing?

    What was the witchcraft you were practicing?

    Or in the case of one school/church friend I've known since high school, he's an angry 36 year old atheist edgelord who thinks he's being provocative and "cool" who thinks that posting images of baphomet and claiming to be a Satanist is "giving it to the man". I guess he thinks that he's going to get Christians to freak out and start some condemnation raid against him, and he can then feel self-righteous in his rejection of the religion of his youth. Or that's what it comes across. Personally, when I see his posts on my Facebook news feed it just comes across as acting out an adolescent fantasy as a full grown adult. He doesn't get the kind of reactions I think he thinks he was going to get.

    Wicca is a modern syncretic Neo-Pagan religion created in the 1950's by a man named Gerald Gardner. A lot of Neo-Pagan religions are attempts to re-invent older pagan traditions, such as Celtic Paganism, or Germanic Paganism, or Hellenic Paganism (etc). Wicca is a mish-mash of generalized European folklore turned religious tradition. A lot of it has no basis in historic Pagan traditions from Europe, but is more of a product of contemporary romanticism, as opposed to serious historical scholarship.

    But, no, Wicca isn't Satanism. They are utterly different things. The same way that Buddhism isn't Satanism.

    Nobody is under any obligation to entertain absurd and insulting notions. I heard Linda said that Sally once knew Abby, which begs the question, do you hate puppies?

    Hence the quotes around the word “unexplainable.”
