Yes, “Christian witches” are a thing, and they are gathering in Salem, Massachusetts this Easter weekend for their annual convention.
In all honesty, this is a topic that is difficult to address calmly. When our Lord’s mighty name is taken and abused by charlatans and deceivers who stand for all manner of things God’s Word expressly condemns, it should get our blood boiling.
If a group of “Magickal Beings, Witches, Sorcerers/Soceresses[sic], Wizards, Warlocks, Necromancers, Readers and more” assembling under the name of Christ for a “magickal weekend” during the time traditionally set apart for remembrance of His glorious resurrection and victory over the grave isn’t a gross abuse of the word “Christian,” I don’t know what is.
In an event that she promises will be the “magickal weekend of your LIFE,” “Christian witch” Valerie Love and her “Christian Witches Mystery School” will be hosting the group’s 2020 convention at the Hawthorne Hotel from April 10-12.
The event, which is geared toward these deceived women but is open to anyone who comes “in love and peace,” will feature classes by Love, a party, a cemetery walk, various panels, Tarot, palmistry, and angel readings, a Harry Potter costume party, and a “Resurrection Sunday inspirational service” conducted by Love.
This blasphemous event is little more than the product of Love’s limitedly successful networking and peddling her cross- and pentacle-adorned garbage, including several books on “wealth consciousness,” Bible codes, ecumenical “universal souls,” self-love, and a title disgustingly called “God Is In Love With You.”
On her personal website, Valerie Love describes herself as a reverend and a “minister of spiritual consciousness”. She recalls “communing with spirits” as a toddler and describes her relationship with Jesus as her “love affair with the Ascended Master Christ”.
How on earth can anyone read even the slightest bit of Scripture and come away with the impression that one can be a Christian and a witch? Quite easily, actually, by purposefully contorting Scripture to fit the desired narrative and ignoring those parts that unequivocally condemn your sin—people do it every single day.
Take this post by Love’s organization, for example:
Love sees it as her “divine assignment” to teach people that the Bible is a book of witchcraft. Yes, the same Bible that contains Galatians 5:19-21, which reads:
Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. (ESV)
To her fellow “Christian witches,” Love offers The Christian Witch’s Creed, a manifesto of her beliefs, which she encourages others to adapt or customize for their own lives.
“I am a Witch, and proud of it, free to be as God created me, living my Soul’s Destiny… Magickal, Mystical, Mysterious me, I am Love, exceedingly,” the blasphemous creed begins. “I am only here for Love.”
“I am a Christian Witch,” the creed continues. “I love my cross and my wand. I consult my Tarot deck and my Bible. I adore and am devoted to Christ and the Goddess.”
So much wrong with all of that, so little time. Let Titus 1:15-16 suffice: “…to the defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their minds and their consciences are defiled. They profess to know God, but they deny him by their works. They are detestable, disobedient, unfit for any good work.”
Love’s words and teachings are damnable, and we must spread awareness of this growing cult. Pray that Love’s wicked deeds would be thwarted and that her cold, calloused heart would be changed and she’d run from blasphemy and turn to our mighty God!!
