Colleges Now Teaching Classes on Occult Rituals and Witchcraft

Colleges in the United States and Europe have started offering classes that teach students about witchcraft and occult rituals.

In America, Rice University has introduced classes that teach “Gnosticism, Esotericism, and Mysticism.”

The college offers a “certificate” from its religion department that focuses on magic, ritual, and witchcraft.

“Witches are back, and they want academic credit,” Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, explained in a recent podcast.

Mohler discussed how these are “universities that once understood the universals, the good, the beautiful, and the true, to be held together within the Christian worldview, which Jesus Christ is the unity of all truth.”

However, we are now in a time, where Christ is removed as the unity of all truth, he added.

These universals have been divided, which leads to programs centered around “ancient paganism,” he explained.

According to a report from The Washington Stand, several schools, both in the United Kingdom and the United States, have started teaching witchcraft.

They are also teaching magic, occult, and ritual.

Those schools include the University of Exeter in England.

By next year, the British school will offer a master’s degree in witchcraft, magic, and the occult, according to WND.

Joseph Backholm of the Center for Biblical Worldview explained to The Washington Stand that it’s not new that there’s interest in “magic.”

In fact, that interest dates to biblical times.

“Witchcraft was specifically condemned in Deuteronomy, and King Saul consulted the Witch of Endor in 1 Samuel,” he said.

But humans are “wired with an interest in the supernatural,” he said.

“[M]agic is sometimes where we turn when we want access to supernatural power but we don’t want to submit to anyone. It creates the illusion of power with control,” he said.

Obviously, not all “supernatural” is good.

“All supernatural power that is not from God is from Satan,” he said.

“It’s real power, but it comes at a tremendous cost that isn’t disclosed up front.”

Backholm further explains:

“Satan’s goal is just to keep the crown of God’s creation — humanity — from knowing their creator.

“Both atheism and magic accomplish that goal, so Satan is happy with either choice.

“Atheism is for those who think something can come from nothing and magic is for those who can’t quit[e] shake the idea that there is something more but still want to be in charge of themselves.”

Officials said the new Exeter program will be based in its Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies.
