Thank you so much for the information and the sites. I really 
appreciate it. Although, I do have one more small favor to ask; 
could you possibly send me a few scriptures about wicca so that I 
can show them to "Claire"? I'd really appreciate it. Again, thanks 
so much!!!

Hi Emily,

There is nothing in the New Testament that I know of specifically 
which directly addresses Wiccans. There are prohibitions against 
being a medium, a sorceress, or a witch in the Law of Moses which 
applied to Israel before Christ came. The issue in the New Testament 
is that Jesus is Lord of everything, above all others. For instance,

"...we know that "all of us possess knowledge." "Knowledge" puffs up, 
but love builds up. If any one imagines that he knows something, he 
does not yet know as he ought to know. But if one loves God, one is 
known by him....we know that "an idol has no real existence," and 
that "there is no God but one." For although there may be so-called 
gods in heaven or on earth--as indeed there are many "gods" and many 
"lords"--yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all 
things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through 
whom are all things and through whom we exist. However, not all 
possess this knowledge." (First Corinthians 8:1-7)

In the New Testament period, since Christ came, the universal message 
is that we have found favor with God. He loves us and has made full 
provision for all our sins in the blood sacrifice of His Son. After 
His death, Jesus was raised from the dead and He entered heaven to 
assume the position of Lord of all the universe, and to be the final 
judge of mankind.

I will copy this email to my email team members since several of them 
have experience in dealing with people who are into Wicca.
