I don't believe they exist. Guess i'm not the only one that doesnt believe in them,
First of all, withcraft in the real sense of the word is nothing like the African view of witchraft. Witch is an ancient German word used to describe a wise woman --------withces were normally women who were alternative threpaists and healers----they udnerstood the movment of the stars in order to plan thier lives (kinda like a farmer knowing the right time of the year to sow his seeds). Witches were astrologers, herbalists, midwives and so on.
In modern times, a witch is strictly someone (man or woman) who practises the ancient European religion.
The word witch today is used to describe someone who does evil----witches indeed do practise magic----magic is natural energy that is all around us---when yoou have a cold/flu and you decide to use natural herbs or drink mint tea etc---you are practisng magic. Magic is simply using the natural energies around us to improve our lives----it is only pure energy---neitehr good nor evil----it is what you do with it that makes it evil or good. It is a bit like a doctor who has extensive knowledge of human anatomy and how to cure many illnesses----he can use his skill for good to help and cure people and he can also use his knowledge of poisonous substances to poison and kill people=------this dos not mean that all doctors are bad. Therefore, magic in itself is not bad----people who practise magic are not bad---it is what you do with it that matters.
Magic has even been practised in the Church----yesss it has! Look at the catholic church and its many rites and rituals----hardly different from ceremonial magicians. Even so called Pentecostal churches that pray down Holy Ghost power (simply invoking energy from a higher source)------and my favorite---the blessed hankie---you know the one----the pastor orays over your hankie and it is blessed and suddenly miraculous----yep, witches and magicians everywhere have been doing that for ages (empowering various objects & hankies) for centuries!.
Even Jesus practised magic (as well as many biblical prophets) he healed the sick, turned water to wine, walked on the sea---he even cursed a fig tree! He had magick power/energy that he could use to both bless and curse!!
Long story , magic is everywhere in life and in nature------- and it is available to all people who take time to study and understand the natural world---whether they are Muslims (and yes there are muslim magic workers), christians or traditional religous people. Magic is simply pure energy that can be used for good or for bad------kinda like electricity---it can be used to save lives in the Operaing Room and it can also be used to extinguish a life in a Texan death room
Witchcraft is strictly the practise of an ancient European religion----just like Africans will practise their own traditional religions of Orisha worship.
Finally, good witches exist-----and so also do bad witches----but not all witches are bad or evil.

If you are a Nigerian you would have heard series of confessions, fetish-ly or "church-ily" induced. we heard of the chap that was found at this high tension wire in Benin.
DBN, Lagos carried a story of another guy that was beaten to death after confessing his deed,
It would be silly to assume they don't exist, but it would be really scary to believe they are too powerful
If you are an African and you don't have witchcraft in your family Then you should Give Glory To God for that alone,
Most of my family members are Witches and wizard which have done really terrible evil things in my family making life impossible ,
I thank God am still alive today to give Thanks,

If there's a witch here please contact me. Why are you staying in naija with all those power when me and you can invisibly enter the Bank of England unseen. I will take you to the bank and wait for you to do your "thing".If you say this to a white person, he will laugh his head off. This is why Africa is as poor as it is now. Africans of which am one, blames every thing on juju and witchcraft. I did not have PHD because my neighbour put juju on me from succeeding. If i drink too much it is down to witches and juju. Let me tell you a story. I recently visited nigeria. One night at Oshodi, at 8pm, their was a crowd of people beating the hell out of a man, for stealing the private part of one young boy. Because their was no electricity, people were pointing torch light on the young man, to see his private part. I bent down and had a look, and found out that the boy's joystick was still there, but it was rather small. silly me I always thought when they steal your joystick they take everything. The moral of this story is their was nothing wrong with the little boy's private part. Did they expect this 3yr old to be hung like a donkey. You couldn't make it up. I laughed all the way to Festac. I beg free your mind and your yansh go follow. If there is any one here who has actually seen a witch please describe how they look like, how they operate, there meeting place etc. I would like to join you.Come on all you black and white witch invite this brother to your next meeting. Looking forward to seeing you in the next meeting. Meanwhile if you have picture of a witch please post it.
Am still waiting for a witch to contact me. Are you saying from all the supposed millions of witches in Nigeria and abroad non of them have seen my comments. If you know any witch please tell them i want to contact them. I have never heard of so much humdrum. To believe your neighbour can change into a cat, dog owl etc at night is the height of ignorance. Its only an under-developed mind and in developing countries that you hear about witches. This is because no one bothers to investigate these claims. In Europe if you tell your neighbour you saw a witch last night, you will be taken to the nearest hospital for examination. Am still waiting for the picture of a witch. Haba free your mind and your yanch go follow.
Witchcraft are originated by the devil. It is one of the means the devil uses to oppress people. As Christians we should be mindful or think about that, we are to fous on God and believe on him. Only Him can save.
Witchcraft or no witchcraft all are the devices of the devil.
Be prayerful and believe God's word and no power of darkness, no power of the enemy will be able to come near you.
it does exist so that we can see the power of God . Just last week i experienced a Little boy's confession on how he killed his grandfather and 11 others and now he has his mother tied up( in the spirit world) and ready for the slaughter. Right now deliverance is being conducted to set him free.
I am a christian and I believe that whichcraft does exist bcause my bible tells me that,those who practices whichcraft will never inherit the kingdom of God.But I never seen one though but in our African community we hear stories of people who practices witchcraft and some times u are told so and so are witches they either use magic power or herbs.
