What I view as witchcraft that others do not

Before I became a mature Christian I used to manipulate people into liking me with humour and elegance and vulnerability and expressions of innocence or creative social judgment

I manipulated a doctor and a PhD student among others

And God dealt with me harshly for it

When I was 19 I told a guy I dropped out of English cause I thought it was anti Christian

later his friend found out what I had said and was furious at me for biasing his conscience against Christianity with my careless use of terminology

I realize now what I was trying to articulate but could not authentically express was my view that language had become a vehicle of sensationalism and culture worship and not a vehicle of self expression or organic social and emotional learning

That rather than telling emotional stories that can elevate human consciousness

it has become a means of derogatory fantasy making

both examples as well as the first deal with manipulating

For me whether your manipulating people or ideas or emotions

If your not being truthful and putting your money where your mouth is

Your practicing witchcraft

    This is twisted enough that I am trying to see a layer below on this onion if there is one. Let’s analyze and then correct me where I go astray. You say that you did bad things in the past through manipulation so I suspect this is a confession. However you go on to, it appears, blame language as a barrier to heighten or justify this manipulation and that the misuse of language contributed to your misinterpretation of said manipulation. Therefore, you confess to manipulation but then you soft-soap it by attributing language limitations to your confessed errors. Which is it? You can be completely absolved or hold on to an excuse as a gray lie. Manipulation is human nature period and only developed minds attempt to limit manipulation. There are no altruistic purists but rather degrees and manipulation can be as basic as asking for a glass of water to obtain one. Therefore, I fail to see the correlation of manipulation to that of witchcraft. Human nature doesn’t relate to the practice of summoning the supernatural. I conclude your “view” is another language barrier misconception.

    I Know a few white witches they are not evil they are not wrong doers, would you condemn someone without understanding what it is they do. I'm sure there are bad Christians as well.

    Wouldn’t manipulation just be classed as evil then?

    Hey sunshine manipulation is not witch carft, manipulation is a skill that people use to get their way because they can't stand a world where it doesn't go their way. It's unfortunate really that some people can't accept how life works , so they try to change they way the life works.

    Yes ALL manipulation is witchcraft. A lot of women try do do this in relationships and marriage even Christian women. I noticed this ever since the show I Love Lucy.
  • Gwenhwyfar
    I disagree. Witchcraft involves the supernatural. Although Wiccans do refer to themselves as witches among themselves.

    My take on this matter is too long for this page to accept. So I will be posting it as a blog.

    College and education really failed you, didn't they?
    • I got my degree in religion instead of English

    • Anonymous

      The fact that you call it religion and not theology, doesn't speak well of this so-called degree.

    • It wasn’t theology - only 10% of my professors taught the religion they believed in - a lot of them were atheist

    And now your witchcraft is to cloak yourself in Christianity to give yourself the illusion of moral authority to influence others. Be gone witch!
