A Letter to Witches

The following is a letter that Dr. Morey has written to teenage witches that he thought you might like to share with others.


I see from the pentagram you wear and all your Magickal charms that you believe in the power of Magick. Perhaps you have attended a Wiccan gathering or you have participated in some Magick rituals. I don't know.

I see by your cross pendants and rosaries that you believe in the power of your god. Perhaps you have attended a Church Service or you have participated in Mass or Communion. I don't know.

But so many questions fill my mind. Have you "drawn down the moon" yet? Have you ever felt a power come upon you? Do you worship a particular goddess? Have you been initiated? Do you have a Wiccan name? Have you gone skyclading? Are you in the outer or inner circle? Have you used blood in your rituals? Have you ever called forth a familiar spirit?

Have you 'Received the Lord as your personal savior' yet? Have you felt the power of God come over you? Do you worship at a particular church? Have you been baptized? Do you have a Christian name? Have you ever dressed up for church? Are you just a member of the congregation or are you a Sunday school teacher or preacher? Have you ever took Communion, drank the blood of Christ? Have you ever called on the Holy Spirit?

The reason I am writing you is that I have studied the occult for thirty years and I have come to certain conclusions.

Now, I know that you will disagree with some of my conclusions because we have traveled different paths. But I have added the benefit of the testimonies of those who used Magick in the highest levels possible such as the Golden Dawn and the O.T.O. and then have come to faith in Christ and now have renounced Magick.

Not exactly Witchcraft there.

All I ask is that you have an open mind and give serious attention to the things I now bring up. Remember an unexamined faith is a worthless faith.

I. The fact that Magick does not work.
After all the talk about the "power" that people can get from Magick, I have never known a more powerless group of people.

Wiccans and Pagans are not usually as caught up on 'Power' as the author seems to believe.

Many of those who use Magick are sick all the time. They go through multiple marriages. They have money problems. Their cars get flat tires. They get their share of flues and colds.

And I suppose Christians never suffer from flu or colds? No money problems, always happy marriages? Christians never get flats I suppose? Shamans and other healers are sick often so they will be better able to cure the illness in others, having first hand knowledge.

Even more seriously, they cannot beat their own drug or sex addiction. They are usually in bondage and totally powerless to change their life for the better.

Yet again, Christians also can fall under the same words.

If Magick really worked, they would never be sick. They would win every horse race in town! They would own Wall Street by now! They would be able to maintain a successful marriage.

Here is a complete misunderstanding of the use of Magick, and that power hungry attitude again.

But the fact is, you waste a lot of money and time on Magick and are no better off. In fact, you will end up worse off.

You spend a lot of money on Christianity in tithes, donations and offerings and are no better off. In fact, you become worse off.

If Magick worked, witches would be picking up the winning lottery numbers every week. But the fact is that when the "rubber meets the road" Magick simply does not work.

If praying to God worked, Christians would be winning lots of money and never have any problems, but the fact is that when the "rubber meets the road" God simply does not work.

II. Their lame duck excuses as to why they are sick or why they can’t keep their marriage together or why they aren’t rich, are weak and feeble.
One psychic "healer" (a relative of mine) is sick all the time. Her husband is dying of cancer! When she boasted to me of her Magickal powers, I confronted her with the rather obvious fact that her Magick did not work for her or her ex-husband. She replied that her Magick will not work for herself.

But who says that you cannot heal yourself by Magick? Where is it written down? And who says that your husband or wife cannot use Magick to heal you? If her Magick cannot help herself or her husband, then what good is it?

This 'healer' seems to have some bad ideas from what the author said. Some believe that using Magick for yourself is bad, even to the point of believing it won't work. Using Magick to heal yourself and your loved ones is alright. Using Magick is alright for anything as long as 'An it Harm none' is kept in mind. As for healing the sick, even though Christians never get sick, if they ever did, a little prayer would clear it right up. Always, right?

I could not help but point out that she was always crying about money problems. What use is her Magick if it cannot make her rich?

Magick is only good if it can make you rich? What good is God if he cannot make you rich? The author here seems hung up on materialism.

III. A Magickal world view is internally contradictory and hypocritical.
Give the bible a good read and think for yourself. Contradictory, hypocritical man is that the pot calling the Silverware black.

A. To say, "there are no moral absolutes" is to give an absolute.

B. To say, "Do what thou wilt, this is the whole of the law" has been used to justify everything from black Magick to human sacrifice. If there are no standards, then on what grounds can they condemn child abuse, Hitler, murder, etc.? They can't.

The actual phrase here is "An it harm none, do what thou wilt. This shall be the whole of the law" Leaving out the 'An it Harm None' is taking it out of context.

C. To say, "everything is relative" and "there is no evil," and then to turn around and say that Christianity is "evil" is contradictory.

There is no absolute evil, ie. Satan or Lucifer. Evil exists in intent.

D. To say, "Everyone has the right to believe what they want" and then condemn Christians for what they believe is contradictory.

Everyone has the right to believe as they want as long as they don't infringe on my right to believe as I want.

E. To say, "Do what thou wilt" and then tell Christians not to do what they wilt is hypocritical.

Again leaving out the 'An it Harm none.'

F. To say, "that it is wrong to judge/condemn others," and then to judge/condemn Christians is contradictory.

"Thou shall not Judge." "Pagans are evil." Live by your own Ten Commandments. The bible is so full of contradictions it isn't even funny.

IV. A Magickal view of life does not correspond to reality.
G. No Magick is going to make you thin if you do not stop eating. No Magick will make you rich if you do not get up and go to work.

Duh. Another fine example of the author's misconceptions about Magick.

H. The claim of modern witches that they are reviving pre-Christian paganism is not true historically. The rituals and beliefs of modern day Magick are of recent origin.

Whoa, are you talking about modern witches or modern day Magick? Modern day Magick and Wiccan rituals are different things.

I. My brother in law who is in the occult told me he was going to use Magick to get himself a parking space in N.Y.C. I in turn told him that I would ask Jesus to get me a space. He drove around for four hours before finding a place while I found one immediately and did not have to go around the block even once! His Magick was not even good enough to find him a parking space!

J. A Magickal view of life is a cop out and it breeds irresponsibility. Instead of taking responsibility for their life, those who use Magick always blame "bad luck" or claim that someone is using black Magick against them. The truth is that you are responsible for the choices you make in life — not Magick.

Hold it right there Mr. "Its the Will of God." and "The devil made me do it." Christians have taken no responsibility for their own actions. Come off your high horse and live in reality, mister. Instead of taking responsibility for their life, Christians always blame God or the Devil. Paganism and Wicca both are about taking responsibility for your own life and actions. The Rule of Three: What ye send out comes back to you threefold. You make your own life.

K. It attracts people with mental problems. Sad but true. I have seen this many, many times. The State Mental Hospitals are filled with people who were users of Magick. It appeals to people with those kind of people.

Okay, how about all the "God told me to do it" cases or Christians who go nuts? The state hospitals are filled with guilted-out Christians.

L. They live in constant fear of the powers they draw down. Hence they need the occult protection of the circles, towers, shields, charms, etc. What a terrible religion of fear!

Religion of Fear? "Follow God or Burn in Hell" That’s fear. Don't feel sexual or you'll burn in hell, don't have too much fun, You'll burn in Hell. Do what God says or you'll burn in hell. That is fear. Don't think anything that we don't approve of or you'll burn in hell for eternity.

M. If you depend upon trinkets such as pentagrams to protect you, you do not have any real power. To think that a stupid piece of metal or glass is going to protect you from a demon you summon is absurd.

You think the Crosses you wear have any real power? Do you think your Holy Water will protect you?

N. The lust for blood is evil. It has led to horrible crimes. Killing animals and people for their "energy" is wicked as well as criminal.

Ever wonder why Abraham thought nothing of sacrificing his only Son to God? What sacrifice did God accept from Able and reject from Cain? What does the wine at communion represent? What will wash away the sins of Christians? Who is blood lustful?

O. Sex Magick is filthy and gross beyond words and involves child abuse, bestiality, sodomy, etc. You will never have a normal satisfying sex life once you debase yourself in sex Magick.

First off, Sex is not nasty. Sex Magick does not involve child abuse, bestiality or sodomy. Sex Magick is two people coming together with the same intent in mind, using the sex act to raise the energy to send the purpose of the Magick. But you will never have a good guilt free sex if you're a christian.

P. Magick is for losers.

The greatest Magicians always end up broke, alone, and miserable. Check to see what happened to people like Crowley. They were all losers.

Whenever a true Christian challenges them, the Magicians always lose.

One of the most probable reasons for that might be the fact that Christians, in general, are so irrational. No matter what you point out they always come back with something, no matter if what they what they say directly contradicts what they said two sentences before. If they get confused its, "You can't understand God. Its the will of God, its just the way He is." There is no way to argue with an irrational person.

I have challenged occultist to take their best shot and they always failed. On one occasion, a coven sent demons to kill me but I didn't even get a headache!

It seems you've been dealing with a lot of folks with Hollywooditis.

Q. While there is a lot of hate and lust in Magick, there is no love. If you leave or reveal the secrets, they will try to kill you.

I helped to move a girl from Philadelphia to Florida to escape her former occult friends. If they really loved her, why did they try to kill her? If she wanted to leave the group, why did they object to her doing what she wilt?

This was obviously a Cult, not Wiccan or Pagan group. There is no hate inherent in Wicca or Paganism. There is Hate inherent in Christianity, not taught outright, but look at how good christian parents refuse to let their children play with others of a different religion or different values. Look at how vicious they attack someone who believes differently.

R. There is no forgiveness, comfort or salvation in Magick. It has no Savior or God who loves and cares for you.

Nothing needs forgiving, there is nothing to seek salvation from. The God and Goddess do love and care for you and for all.

The occult is lonely, sad, cold and sterile.

Go to a gathering and say that. Watch children run free in a crowd and have no fear because they know, and their parents know that everyone there will look out for them and protect them.

S. The Bible says that true power behind the Magickal arts is satanic. Those who deny this are dupes of the devil.

The Power behind Wicca and Paganism can't be an entity who doesn't exist. You have been duped and brainwashed to be guilty and afraid since birth.

These are just a few things that came to mind as I thought about what I have seen in thirty years of research in the occult.

The Lord Jesus Christ has broken the power of Magick and has brought life, love and immortality to light through the Gospel. Jesus is Victor!

The occult has nothing to offer that compares with the love of Jesus. Turn to Him in repentance. Renounce your witchcraft and the works of the devil. Burn your Magick books and mash your altars. Turn or burn. Repent or perish! Jesus is the answer. John 3:36.

Turn or Burn. Fear based recruiting. How sad.
