TheTVObserver: Witchcraft - The World Speaks

Poverty, ignorance, isolation, deep-rooted traditional beliefs and rebellion against authority under apartheid form the background, said Prof. Thias Kgatla, a University of the North theology professor studying the issue. On such fertile ground, a natural disaster or sudden death is easily blamed on sorcery, and a mob mentality takes over. Charges often result from family feuds, political rivalries or jealousy of a person who seemingly finds inexplicable wealth amid poverty.

The world had something to say on this subject and I took it upon myself to highlight the comments which I thought were very interesting. So this entire blog is dedicated to the comments which I think you will find equally, if not more, interesting. From Zambia, Gambia, Germany, Portland Maine, Liberia, Sweden, Nigeria, Kampala, England, Iraq, Ireland, Japan, and Zimbabwe there was more to said about the subject.

Whatever your opinion, this is happening and what I know for sure is that you need to know exactly where you stand with your faith to avoid trauma from these types of situations. There are more questions than answers in this topic. To read the entire articles CLICK HERE.
