Christian Witches?

A group of so-called “Christian witches” is hosting their very first convention in Salem, Massachusetts – a city known for its notorious witch trials in the late 1600s.

Rev. Valerie Love is the woman behind the event and says her “Divine assignment” on earth is to promote witchcraft. Love says she is an ordained minister of spiritual consciousness and recently founded the Covenant of Christian Witches Mystery School.

A group of so-called "Christian witches" is hosting their very first convention in Salem, Massachusetts – a city known for its notorious witch trials in the late 1600s.

Rev. Valerie Love is the woman behind the event and says her "Divine assignment" on earth is to promote witchcraft. Love says she is an ordained minister of spiritual consciousness and recently founded the Covenant of Christian Witches Mystery School.

She says she was born a witch but grew up as a Jehovah's Witness and had to hide her identity.

For as long as I can remember I've always been 'magickal'... seeing things that people said 'weren't there' or daydreaming in far-away worlds as a child and being constantly 'snapped' back to 'reality' by teachers and other big people," she explains in a post on her website. "The word Witch engenders power in some and fear in others. The determining factor in what comes up for us when we hear the word 'Witch' is consciousness. One person is ecstatic about the possibilities of Magick while another is stricken with terror."

Love says she left behind the Jehovah's Witnesses and found the freedom "to be the Goddess I AM today." It's worth noting that Christian theologians and church leaders do not consider the Jehovah's Witnesses to be a Christian group, labeling it as a cult.

Meanwhile, the Bible explicitly rejects witchcraft more than a dozen times in both the Old and New Testaments. 1 Chronicles 10:13 states that King Saul died because he consulted a witch or "medium." God commands in Leviticus 19:31, "'Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God.'" And Revelation 21:8 states, "But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."
