Below, I share some resources for you to research my ideas on this topic.
Remember that I am sharing this video to help people understand why the bible does not support us witches or those who practice divination. By researching the reasons as to why witchcraft, conjure, divination etc became intertwined and accepted in Christianity (within some groups), you will be able to decided what you should change…..or not.
The Bible & Conjure
If you are thinking the bible supports your conjuring & hoodoo practices, let me share with you a few passages from the good book. If you’re a witch or even do tarot readings, you may wish to re-read the next few lines too. The facts are, you need to step away from the bible, or risk the dangers.
27 “ ‘A man or woman who is a medium or spiritist among you must be put to death. You are to stone them; their blood will be on their own heads.’ ”
10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD; because of these same detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the LORD your God. 14 The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so.
1 Chronicles 10:13
2 Chronicles 33:6
Christianity a Choice?
The African slave trade was the chief means by which most Africans arrived in the Americas. Over twelve million Africans were abducted and forced into slavery in the Americas. Of these, approximately 20 percent were Muslims. A significant minority were also Christians, hailing from the Kongo Kingdom in West Central Africa, which adopted Catholicism as its official cult in the early 1500s. Otherwise, the vast majority were devotees of the varieties of extraordinary beings emblematic of Orisha-type religions indigenous to Africa. (1)
Religions of Orisha devotion would become known under a variety of names in the Americas—Vodun, Yoruba, Obeah, Santería, Ochoa, Kumina, and Candomblé. Missionary Christianity asserted that Africans worshiped the arch-villain of Christian mythology known as Satan or the Devil.
Religions of Orisha devotion, more generally, were also derided as the most base form of idolatry—the worship of sticks and stones—and the lowest on a totem pole of so-called heathen religions. (2)
“Christianity was a double-edged sword [for African-Americans],” says Dr. Lawrence H. Mamiya, Professor of Religion and Africana Studies at Vassar College and co-author of The Black Church in the African American Experience. “On the one hand, well, Whites wanted to use Christianity to make slaves docile and obedient. [On the other hand,] the Africans adapted Christianity for their survival and liberation.”
The concerted effort of white owners to eradicate “heathen” (or non-Christian) customs—rendered the preservation of religious traditions difficult and often unsuccessful.
Isolated songs, rhythms, movements, and beliefs in the curative powers of roots and the efficacy of a world of spirits and ancestors did survive well into the nineteenth century. But these increasingly were combined in creative ways with the various forms of Christianity to which Europeans and Americans introduced African slaves.
In Latin America, where Catholicism was most prevalent, slaves mixed African beliefs and practices with Catholic rituals and theology, resulting in the formation of entirely new religions such as vaudou in Haiti (later referred to as “voodoo”), Santeria in Cuba, and Candomblé in Brazil. But in North America, slaves came into contact with the growing number of Protestant evangelical preachers, many of whom actively sought the conversion of African Americans.(3)
African Americans Reclaim their Religious Roots
The Yoruba movement had its beginnings in the 1960s in New York City. As thousands of Santería practitioners arrived in Harlem and other regions of the United States following the Cuban Revolution, African Americans were met with a formidable presence of Orisha devotion that nurtured a growing expanse of close-knit communities sponsoring rituals of healing, prayer, sacrifice, and initiation.(1)
The Oyotunji society emphasized its basis in the religious and political structures of pre-colonial Yoruba religion and culture. Residents typically speak Yoruba, wear traditional West African clothing, live under the governance of a theocratic sovereign, and adhere to the cultic and ritual life of Yoruba-style Orisha devotion.

COMMENTS & RESPONSES FROM YOUTUBE
The Original People of so called america were forced to follow christianity, by the way. Our languages, culture, and high science, aka magick or medicine, was taken by force, and we were forced into christianity. There are plenty of fake medicine men and women that practice a blend of christianity and indigenous medicine, much to our disdain. I don’t think christianity should ever be mixed with my or other traditions. Slave religion doesn’t go with empowering oneself.
It is a mistake to view the Bible as one book. It is a collection of many books with tidbits of many things borrowed from earlier mythology with a lot of legalistic religious stuff. So finding one verse in the Bible or even a collection of them to prove something one way or another is too simplistic of an approach, in my view. Sure, the Bible tells you not to practice witchcraft, but at the same time tells how Moses’ staff was turned into a serpent and how he pronounced curses on Egypt. He fucked them up real bad. Even the Apostle Paul cursed a man with blindness in Acts 13, so this is all a matter of perspective. In the West people larglely view the Bible as a Christian book, but one must understand how it was corrupted to be constructed into that from ancient fragments reimagined, many of them Egyptian in origin. So the latter day iteration may be inferior, but that doesn’t make it devoid of magic. Jesus can be the magical child and Mary can be Isis if one chooses to read it that way.
Thank you Savannah..i have been saying the very same thing..”for years”. Maybe now that you have said it, people will take a hint. I don’t make many comments because i feel that you’re videos do not need interpretation or explanations as i believe you are quite clear in all that you say. In my opinion, Why anyone would want to use anything out of the Christian Bible for the purpose of any Occult practice is beyond me. To me, it is both counter productive and counter intuitive. Well done mate, and as always, its a pleasure to sit, listen and learn from you. Btw, not wishing to offend by any means but, i like you in black hair better. Just my humble opinion lol. Rock on mate and Blessed Beast.
Jesus said “So it will be at the end of the age,the angels will come forth and take out the wicked from among the righteous, and will throw them into the furnace of fire, in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 13:49-50. Jesus also said “You are my friends if you do what I command you.” John 15:14. Jesus taught that the only way to be saved is to choose him as your Lord and Master, repent and believe that he died for the sins of his people on the cross see John 14:6.

Dramatic sigh…….George I’m leaving your post here, as it kind of proves my point. The Bible is full of Highly narcissistic and controlling language, to ensure that all you sheep, feel codependent and worthless eg “You are my friends if you do what I command you.” I seriously believe, that it is your Jesus Who is the “devil”, and that my “Gods” are the TRUE powers within the universes. So I encourage you, to research narcissistic personality disorder, and then reread your bible. May Lucifer himself (the TRUE light bearer) help you on your journey and to the truth.
GOTTA QUESTION! I asked Azazel though my Ouija board and ask when I evoke him that if burning the Bible as a sacrifice/offer would be great Azazel said yes but still what would your recommendation be? BTW love’n the Blonde style looking Attractive 😉

Greetings, thank you for sharing. That is an awesome ritual, and one that sounds liberating indeed. I use the bible pages for black magick rituals – everything from burnt offerings, to writing of names in blood, and the bible itself is used to stand the sigil of lucifer or black candles 🙂 – Blessed beast to you and yours – Savannah
