Witchcraft

This is the category where your questions about witches and witchcraft as a spiritual path should go. Based on an ancient shamanistic way of life, witchcraft is a spiritual system known as "The Craft of the Wise" and were a valuable part of villages and communities. Practitioners were the healers and leaders of their people. Modern witches follow the cycles of the sun, the moon and the seasons of the earth for guidance and knowledge. Most, but not all witches practice some form of magic in its true meaning.

Why would people believe that today's Winchester 94 EA or AE models are based off the 1984 model - virtually unchanged?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

People may believe this because the Winchester 94 EA or AE models share similar design elements and functionality with the 1984 model. However, subtle improvements and updates have likely been made over the years, making the current models not exactly the same as the 1984 version. Additionally, the overall appearance and feel of the newer models may contribute to the perception of similarity to the 1984 model.

What object is associated as a means of transportation for a witch?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

I believe you are referring to a broom. However, it should be noted that this is a myth, one that goes back to the middle ages. It was believed back then that witches had magical brooms that they used to cast spells and to spread magical potions throughout an environment (such as in a room, or even onto a person's body). There is no credible evidence that women who practiced witchcraft actually rode brooms, but people who were frightened of witches came to believe these women were capable of levitating and flying through the air.

How is Aslan's power the opposite of the witch?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Aslan's power is characterized by love, selflessness, and a sense of justice, whereas the White Witch's power revolves around fear, tyranny, and manipulation. Aslan's power is pure and comes from a place of compassion and righteousness, while the White Witch's power is fueled by control and domination over others. Ultimately, Aslan's power is portrayed as the embodiment of good, while the White Witch represents evil in "The Chronicles of Narnia" series.

Does Satan possess unlimited Powers even to kill a person?

User Avatar

Asked by Domingos

Christian belief attributes a great deal of power to Satan, but always assumes that Satan will not use those powers to kill anyone. In the Book of Job, God instructed Satan to do any manner of evil to the person of Job, but to stop short of actually killing him. The Books of Matthew and Luke say that Satan lifted Jesus up and placed him on a pinnacle of the temple - if Satan can do that, he can pick an ordinary person up and drop him from a great height.

Christianity has more to gain by focussing our fear of Satan on the spiritual and eternal hellfire than on the possibility that he might kill someone..

Are witches satanists?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

This question does not have a clear answer, if one is a worshipper of Satan (s)he could still do whatever they feel like to do, as most of the humans normally do. Another things is depending on the Church/culture you worship Satan in/with. For example Satanism described by Anton Szandor Lavey (Satanic church) is ment to be an ideology. Of course it has rules and holidays and certain ideas. But one can not clearly state how people perceive ideas and the written words, nor how they respond to it.

How do you do black magic?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Black Magic is a misnomer, magic has no polarity, it is simply power.

There are two mistaken but common usages for the term "black magic".

-The first is any use of unexplainable energies seen to have "supernatural" basis, and believed by some to "come from the Devil" or be "the Devil's work".

This a religious prejudice, and patently false. Most of the people practicing the Craft are Pagans, followers of any one of a large number of spiritual paths that include magic in their lives. None of them believe in the "Devil", he is an entity of the Abrahamic religions.

-The second is in reference to any "harmful" use of magic.

Witches like everyone else in the world are human and subject to all the good, bad and indifferent motivations of the rest of humankind.

An ethical practitioner spends a large amount of his/her time checking and rechecking the motivation behind their use of magic. We all make mistakes, but at least with an ethical practitioner of magic, you can be certain we take full responsibility for our actions.

What is the witches mark?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

A Point of View : The greatest challenge to the churches that ran society was an increase in knowledge, Ironically brought about by its own position as the bearer of the knowledge of man. The results of enlightenment with all of its bumps and warts so to speak would eventually topple the life and death hold that it had over the people most of whom were illiterate and completely uneducated. So dedicated was the Catholic church to the ignorance of the ordinary man that it did its mass in Latin to make sure that there was a minimum amount of thought. There are however people in every society Both male and female that stand out Either through their ability to deal with the philosophical implication of an argument or the ability to see nature for what it is ie, the Earth revolves around the Sun. or any number of understandings about the mathematical and scientific order of things. There is a fact of life and that is that in any powerful organization the hardest nut ends up at the top of the heap, and they fear the truth. They depend on ignorance for their continued authority. So those that would oppose the church was marked a heretic or witch. So I suppose the mark of the witch would be closely associated with one that wishes to find a the path to enlightenment. The basis for the classic "witch hunts" were to purge the "church" of those that did acts that the church did not condone. These acts were predicated on the verse in Deuteronomy that reads... De 18:10 "There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, Now the "witchcraft" translation that was common among the English of the 1500's was not the same thing that the Hebrew word means. The Hebrew word means a "mediums" so popular a couple of years back..those who commune with the dead. Wicca today is more of a nature worship, complete with it's own set of rituals and solomn events. This "mark of the witch" is superstition developed by the hierarchy of the Church for their own purposes. There is no physical mark distinguishable on the practitioners of Wicca.

Why was there a witch craze in the 17th century?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Witch-hunting in the 17th centuryYes, especially in Calvinist parts of the world, such as Cromwellian England, parts of Hungary and New England witch-hunting was an evil past-time in the period from about 1600-1720 or so.

There certainly was but the question is Why?

It was also strong in France & other Catholic countries.

Hugh Trevor-Roper writes (in 1959) of a "General Crisis in the 17th Centuries" characterised by wars, epidemics & poor harvests as well as ideological conflicts & sees the surge in witchcraft persecutions as one aspect of this. The clash between opposing Christains was far more destructive with the Thirty Years War resulting in a 20-255 casualty rate in Germany.

Are magic schools real?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Well, there was a man named Blaise Pascal, who created Pascal's Wager. He says, "It is better to believe in a religion and find out you're wrong, then to not believe in religion and find out you're wrong." What he is trying to say is if you believe in a religion(I'll be using Catholicism for my examples) and you believe in all the good stuff waiting for you if you're good, you have something to strive for. When you don't believe, your life becomes pointless.

How old is Samantha on Bewitched?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The audience never really finds out how old she is. In season 1, episode 22, Darrin asks Samantha when her birthday is and how old she is. Her birthday is on June 6, but she never admits the year, and is troubled by the question of her age. In addition, Conversations between Samantha and her mother Endora suggest she has lived for a very long time because they are witches.
This question was never directly answered on the show. It was, however, hinted that Samantha was alive during the original Salem Witch Trials and was around as far back as the construction of the Leaning Tower of Pisa. So, a safe estimate would be at least several hunderd years old.

Are sorcery and witchcraft the same?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It usually depends on which culture you look at, but, in most cases, sorcery was looked apon as "white magic" which can be used as protection against witchcraft AKA "black magic."

A Pagan PerspectiveSorcery is the practice of what was once called Alchemy.

Witchcraft, (aka the Craft, Wicca and in some cases Paganism) is the following of an earth base belief system which includes but is not necessarily exclusive to the use of magic (high and low), Ritual celebration of the cycles of the year and phases of the moon, as well as herbalism and scrying. Contrary to what you see in movies and read in fiction, we are basicly good people, who live, work and play the same as others.
