A witch is a person who practices witchcraft. Witchcraft is made of two words that are witch and craft, so witchcraft is a craft of using spells to manipulate or influence nature. It has always been there in the world but not all people are skilled in this craft coz not all are..
Spiritually gifted. Those who could not learn the craft wanted to control those who knew about it.....sadly they couldn’t easily do so cos duh 💁🏽‍♀️ spiritually inclined people could detect things from afar. Sadly sellouts sold out the secrets of this craft and the..
Bad guys managed to penetrate through into the systems of people with this craft and made the knowledge work to their advantage. Christianity or religion is one of the ways they have managed to convince people that this craft is very bad and they used the term in a bad way....
Until masses got used to the “uncrafted “ people’s definition of what a which was or is. Proud witches are alive till date in Europe, that’s where this word was coined.
Of course there are people who use such crafts or knowledge to hurt or harm others but this craft...
Was never for that. Well I used to use the word the way I was taught too in church but a lil bit of research helped me. The same “uncrafted” people came to Africa and told Africans that their spiritual powers were evil and that they must shun then....little did they know...
That by doing away with African spiritualism they were doing away with their power and the spiritual systems guarding them as people. Traditional and spiritual healers in Africa were killed or arrested coz of this and Christianity among other religions was forced on Africans...
Now Africans themselves are the ones running away from African spiritualism calling it evil and using the term “witchcraft “ to refer to it. ...........tired of typing.

Lemme sleep......goodnight
