THE BLOOD OF JESUS CLEANSES YOU FROM ALL SIN AND GUILT (1 JOHN 1:7).
JESUS IS THE DELIVERER!!
Some Druidic groups, particularly in the United States, express a belief in nature spirits such as fairies, gnomes, and undines, little creatures of the forests and rivers to whom offerings are made.
Foundation for Shamanic Studies
The practice of shamanic sorcery was common to Native American Indians and Eskimos as well as to the witch doctors in the tribes of Asia, Africa, and Australia. Shamans practice in the context of their belief in animism. They believe that spirits, gods, devils, and other entities dwell in other realms to and from which the experienced and initiated shaman can travel (shamanism and primitive pagan sorcery).
Goddess, Witchcraft, and Pagan Sects
One of the fastest growing religious movements in the world today is Witchcraft, also known as the Earth Religion, and closely related to Paganism and Goddess Worship. Some prefer to call themselves naturalists, pagans, neo-pagans, druids, wiccans, mediums, or shamans. The feminist movement has been one of the principal factors in the rise of witchcraft and earth religion groups and sects. Goddess and earth worship is basically sorcery and primeval occultism. Witches believe, as do other New Agers, in the Hinduistic concepts of reincarnation and karma. They are also prone to believe in forest, nature and tree spirits, in fairies, gnomes and other little creatures, and in spirit beings. Occultic symbols are emphasized, especially the Satanic pentagram and the circle. Candles and incense are used in ceremonies as well as a ritualistic dagger called an athame. Witches do indeed cast spells and place hexes on supposed victims. Some practice astral sex with spirit beings from beyond (incubus or succubus). There have been many claims that witches sacrifice animals and even human beings to the Devil. So, there is among some witchcraft and earth religious groups a close connection with Satanism and other extreme forms of occultism. Included are Wiccan ways, Shamanism, Egyptian Magic, Scandinavian Folk Religion, Feminist Spirituality, Druidism, Neo-paganism, Native American and other native people spirituality. Included are rites, forms, and orders.
Emphasized are evolution and divinity of man.
