During the 80’s and 90’s I was a ‘letter to the editor’ writer. I wrote to all newspapers in our area, and surprisingly, most of them published my writings. The editors, although most were liberals, loved the controversy and rebuttals to my writings.
One evening, while at choir practice, a fellow letter writer handed me a local newspaper. On the front page was a large photo of Wiccans twirling and dancing in the woods. The writer of the article presented “Wicca” as an alternative to “religion.” He even gave an address where one could go to learn more about Wicca.
I called the editor of this newspaper. I told him that I was shocked that a small town newspaper would publish such a thing. I made it clear to him that I was more than a bit perturbed at his front page article of people practicing witchcraft.
He knew me from prior letters to his newspaper. I asked him since he put such a thing on the front page of the paper, would he consider doing a “front page” article on true Christianity and what we believed.
The editor said to me “Well, I cannot do that, but I will consider your article as an editorial. He asked if he could send his photographer out to get my picture. I agreed to this.
In the editorial, I explained that Wiccans were worshiping the earth (which they call Mother Earth) and the universe. I talked about the witchcraft and spells, which the original article did not mention.
Then I began to speak about Christianity. I wrote that born again believers had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I wrote that Jesus is God – part of the Triune Godhead. I told of God’s love for us and how He sent His own Son to die on the Cross as payment for our sins. I wrote that He did that so that we could be reconciled to Him through His Son Jesus Christ.
I explained that everything – the heavens and the earth were created by Him. I inserted Scripture from Genesis.
I posed this question: If a person goes into an art gallery and sees a magnificent painting – should that person praise the ‘painting’ itself, or should they find out about the one who painted it? A rhetorical question – I know. But I felt that it was a good illustration of those who worship the earth and those who personally know the ONE who created everything – heaven and earth!
I had said to the editor when he offered doing the editorial, that I wanted him to use all of my words. He promised he would. Editors are known to take out what may seem offensive to them. That’s why I asked him to publish the piece in its entirety. I placed John 3:16-17 in the piece. I also explained how a person becomes born again from above.
After my editorial came out, at least three witches sent in rebuttals. They were clearly angry. They all used my name in their articles, and called me “narrow minded” and swore that Wiccans did not cast spells.
We know they do.
Our children were concerned when they read the rebuttals from the witches. I prayed with them and assured them that the Lord would protect us.
In these last days
I am not positive about this, but I think that my chances of getting an article published in a town newspaper about Creation and our Lord Jesus in these end times would probably never happen. But I’m very glad that the Lord opened the way for me to write about Him so many years ago.
Pray for those who have become entangled with witchcraft and who practice Wicca. Pray that the Lord would send His people into their lives, and that their eyes would be opened to Truth.

Hi, Geri interesting article check out this Bible Verse. Amos 4:13 New King James Version (NKJV)
13 For behold,
He who forms mountains,
And creates the wind,
Who declares to man what his[a] thought is,
And makes the morning darkness,
Who treads the high places of the earth—
The Lord God of hosts is His name.
Do you agree that Hinduism worships nature?
Saw this bumper sticker the other day. “The Earth is our mother. Treat her with respect”
Well….. Actually. The earth is under my feet. I walk on it. God gave us dominion over it. Hmmmm… We ought to be good stewards of the earth. But sorry, the earth is not a mother… Nor should we worship anything created.
Romans 1:25 (NKJV)
25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
I like the way the HCSB phrases the Greek word (ktisis)
Ktisis: original formation (properly the act; by implication the thing, literal or figurative) :- building, creation, creature, ordinance.
Romans 1:25 (HCSB)
25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served something created instead of the Creator, who is praised forever. Amen.
I was Pentecostal for 17 years, and converted to Wicca and I was lot happier than I had ever been. Wicca and paganism has been around for centuries. Christian’s actually do use parts of “witch craft” Catholics especially.
Catholics are not Christians. Catholicism is a works based cult. We are saved by Grace through faith in Christ. You say you were a Pentecostal for 17 years. You obviously were never born again (saved by Jesus). Here is how to be saved- be saved by Jesus today
