Wiccan Worshippers Encounter The 700 Club
By Cheryl Wilcox
The 700 Club
In fact, many Americans believe that just "being a good person"
guarantees you a spot in heaven. Debbie and Robert Selby professed
to be Christians. They were good people, like your neighbors next
door. Their search for spirituality went like this.
"We got a computer, started browsing and came upon the Wiccan
sites," said Debbie. "We were curious, and it seemed so
innocent. Wiccan, we thought, was about the earth and worshipping
the earth. And one thing led to another, and we decided, well, yeah,
this is the way we will go. We will choose our gods, and we will
set up our own faith--whatever we want to believe in."
Within a very short period, Debbie and Robert were deep into the
occult and white witchcraft.
"We started writing spells and casting spells," said
Debbie. "We would get books. Everything we did was about witchcraft."
"I was looking for the healing aspect of it," said Robert.
"That's more the spells I was doing, the healing spells with
crystals, herbs and different things like that."
"We felt that this was the power that we needed," said
Debbie, "the control that we needed. We could cast spells and
make things happen or not happen. We would have the control."
Robert and Debbie were innocently ignorant of the truth about who
God really says He is. Their earnest search for spirituality led
them on this dark journey.
"We got into it more and more -- and that's when the alcoholism
started," said Robert, "the use of drugs, mainly the use
of marijuana because that is from mother earth."
"And I would have dreams, torturous dreams," said Debbie,
"not nightmares, but night terrors is what I would have."
In the absence of biblical truth, our spiritual hunger is satisfied
with counterfeit powers that ultimately lead to destruction. Here
at The 700 Club our mandate is to be a relevant voice
of biblical truth in the marketplace.
We are committed to television programming that reflects the life-changing
message of Jesus Christ. In the wake of the September 11th attacks,
we saturated our airtime with calling the nation back to prayer
in "50 Days of Faith".
Nearly 100,00 members of our television audience responded with
a commitment to specifically pray for people to turn their hearts
to the God of the Bible. Hearts were touched and lives were suddenly
changed -- just ask Debbie and Robert. They had been watching
The 700 Club just to get the number to call up and complain
when she heard a message of salvation she hadn't heard in years.
"But every time I would watch it, it would just penetrate
me more and more," said Debbie. "God's love, God's love,
until finally I was going to ask the Lord to forgive me. So we
were watching The 700 Club and I said, 'Bob, I have to
tell you I asked the Lord back into my life.'"
"I was feeling the same thing," said Bob, "that
I needed to get the Lord back into my life too. God just shook us
and told us, 'You are doing wrong.'
"It's just wonderful to be with the Lord."
