@mchinwenduYou said "witchcraft is what is practiced and involves spells, incantations, sacrafices, trying to go against anothers will, etc, with the source, signs, manifestations, etc. coming from satan."
Personally reading from your statements i can deduce that you believe in Witches and Wizard as shown in Macbeth or other Hollywood films.
Secondly, I belief the only reference to a witch in the bible is Exodus 22:18 "Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live"
That statement was introduced by King James 1 of England. Before he wrote this into the bible in 1611, he already had Williams Shakespeare create Macbeth for the Jame's Court. So let us remove any assumption that God or Jesus mentioned Witches.
Thirdly, how do you differentiate spoken prayers from a spell? If I say pray to my "god" not "GOD". Will the sound or incartations coming from your mouth to pronouce "god" sound different? Will saying "Amen after a few words not pass as incartations? or what is the meaning of "Amen"?
I hope you can see where am going with this!
You said "The Bible gives examples of children being demon possessed, as I shared previously but I have not read any accounts of a child practicing witchcraft in the Bible. To me, a 2 year can not be a witch (eventhough people may say they are or accuse them of being a witch), unless that 2 year old is practicing witchcraft."
I think we can both agree on that, that this little kids are not witches and plot to kill no one. The references of children being possessed by demons need to be stated. I have come accross no such statements.
You said "Whether any person be practicing witchcraft, is a witch or demon possessed...God has given us the authority to overcome all the power of the enemy. Deliverance is what God's people should be doing."
i am sure the same God has given all his demons too the power to possess humans. Else why will it happen?
dont mind me..........I dont belief all this and overstand confidently what it is about. Have you ever taught, why you rarely see personally gifted people or those who have managed to gain spirituality?
or do you think cos you go to church and pray to jesus makes you spiritual?
