Abstract

SEMENYA, David K.  and  LETSOSA, Rantoa. Effects and impact of witchcraft on Sotho Reformed Churches and the Biblical view of witchcraft. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.34, n.1, pp. 138-145. ISSN 1609-9982.

The aim of this article is to analyse the effects and impact of witchcraft on members of the Basotho Reformed Church who ascribe to witchcraft. From the literature, it is clear that some members of the Basotho Reformed Church practise various forms of witchcraft. Some Christians do not directly involve themselves with practices linked to witchcraft but do participate in healing practices. This article highlights a number of such instances and provides a number of guidelines to churchgoers who are adhering to practices of witchcraft. These guidelines should be relevant to them when they are reflecting on their relationship with the Lord with the aim to live in obedience to God's Word.
