Question by Crystal clear: Wiccans, are we obligated to cast spells for any individual who asks since we are “into peace and helping others”?
And I’m curious as to what your definition of “help” is?
Got an e mail from someone who indicated they were attempting to understand to cast spells on their own and not getting any luck. And the request was produced “I was asking yourself if you could cast spells for me or aid me”….”If you could aid cast spells and help me. All would be appreciated. Thank You.”
Um, okay, mind you – I have no idea what type of spells this person wants – nowhere in the e-mail did it say.
So I respond with some book recommendations to aid asker find out magic from the beginning, the witchvox link to local shops where asker could discover classes and further information and resources, expressed that I do not just cast spells for strangers over the net, but would attempt to answer more certain concerns if the asker had them.
Fair sufficient, I believed.
Then I get a response e-mail essentially chewing me out about refusing to help a “stranger” – harping on the “stranger” portion. Like each friend you made started out as a stranger, and what if doctors refused to treat patients due to the fact they had been “strangers”, and so forth. (yeah, the difference there is, the doctors are acquiring paid to do a job!) The asker is apparently astonished that I would not blindly agree to cast spells simply because he/she “believed that Wiccan religion was very into peace and helping other individuals as much as they could so I assumed that you could aid me with my issues.”
The tone of the rest of the email was essentially a sarcastic tell-off because I did *absolutely nothing* to “aid”, and the asker is positive that individuals have helped me in my life through occasions of need. (Nicely yes, but then I never wandered up to a stranger and demanded aid or produced an unreasonable request either!)
*Sigh. I’m not offended or upset actually, just a small irked that I took the time to respond to the e mail, delivering educational resources and the supply to answer additional queries. Waste of my time it seems.
Perhaps I’ve got the definition of “aid” incorrect? What say you Wiccans on such matters?
Some wonderful answers and points produced so far. Thank you all. I guess I’m just in a “Monday mood” too. )
Oh yeah – response to my pointing out that I was attempting to aid by providing resources and to answer far more particular queries. And I asked if this individual had ever heard the saying “give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats for life”. And once once again I pointed out that this individual was not precise about their intentions:
“I would In no way ask for a spell to harm an individual. I guess. You are NOT really helpful. It really is NOT that you’re carrying out what someone just says for you to do. You would he helping someone in a great matter. Giving me specifics Isn’t going to assist if it is tough for me to cast these spells. That’s why I came to you for aid. But you denied me. Well, there’s NO a lot more require for communication. I am NOT demanding anyhting, I’m just pissed on how you are ranting about other items that does NOT go with what I asked for. There are Several individuals who help with problem. Because, you are NOT the a single. GoodBye. “
And last email after viewing my question:
“You are question asked was ridiculous. I was NOT being selfish. You were. I do NOT care what they have had to say I was just mad at the reality that you acted as if me being a stranger was wrong.”
WOW – somebody forgot their medication these days.
Now see dear, the specifics you posted here would have been more valuable in your original request! How could anybody know if they were in a position to support you when you did not freaking specify what you required help with!?
16 – that explains a lot. If you happen to be going to method adults for assist, try behaving like a rational adult and do not throw a temper tantrum when you don’t get factors *your* way.
Nancy – the issue is – several of us tried to politely but honestly assist this asker – but the asker didn’t get the answers he wanted or an individual to do all the work for him and threw a temper tantrum. What occurred to respecting one’s elders? My High Priestess would never have let me get away with talking to her like this teen has spoken to us – she would undoubtedly have place me in my location, and has on occasion when I’ve stepped out of line – even though I’ve by no means behaved as ridiculous with my Wiccan elders. I’ve *worked* my way along my path, by means of my priestess degrees, and deserve a tad much more respect. You are welcome to place your time and energy into casting spells for this individual if you wish and dealing with the consequences. I am curious though, how this asker’s Mom would really feel about her 16 year old soliciting such support from strangers on the internet.
“stranger” – a person with whom a single is unacquainted (Merriam Webster) This is NOT an insult – it is a simple reality.

I don’t do spells for men and women unless I know them personally (and they ask and specify). We are not obligated to execute any kind of service for anybody, if anything you did the appropriate thing by pointing them in the correct direction.

Query by : Jehovah’s Witnesses, Exactly where does This fit into your “Foundations”?
Deut 18- 21, 23 But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name that I have not commanded him to speak, or[i] who speaks in the name of other gods, that exact same prophet shall die.’ 21And if you say in your heart, ‘How may we know the word that the LORD has not spoken?’— 22(BM) when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the word does not come to pass or come accurate, that is a word that the LORD has not spoken(BN) the prophet has spoken it presumptuously. You need to have not be afraid of him.
Do you recognize the magnitude of these scriptures, contemplating that you have applied all other OT scriptures to globe events, do you see any association with yourselves as the subject matter? If not, why?
If your foundations had been in the Bedrock, of Jesus Christ, would not all of your predictions and “prophesies” have come to pass?
Where do these scriptures fit into your “Foundations” ?
This is a perfectly reputable and pertinent query posed to all Jehovah’s Witnesses.
You all told me you will answer questions like this, as it is a challenge to you from Holy Spirit to answer, and make a reply to who you think is “taunting” you.
I am not taunting, I am asking for a Biblical response that will exonerate your Watchtower Bible and Tract Society.
Your refusal to answer this question demonstrates your fear of the Watchtower Organization, and the punishment the demons will met out to you if you try to answer. You are a extremely sad group, quite positive of yourselves until “mother” is getting exposed for the lady of the night that she truly is.
You have blasted all other religious groups to sanctify and hold yourselves up to the extremely heavens.
You can not grapple with this question, for it’s truth is also excellent a burden to carry for you, the proof of your mother’s illegitimacy.
Answer by truthbearer
If you appear at Isa 47 and then Rev 18, you will see the harlot, who claims, I AM AND NO 1 ELSE.
I sit a queen and shall see no sorrow. But god stated your judgment will come in 1 day. for you lifted yourself up as the only 1.
Now we have numerous false religions, which claim to be the only one particular. this clearly identifies those with this attitude as being the sinful Babylon.
No matter what they contact themselves in this globe, they are identified by God as sinful Babylon.
This takes them appropriate back to their father Lucifer/satan, in Eze 28, when he claimed I am and none beside me.
See this is the starting of the false religion, when Adam, God’s son, declared himself to be god and the only one.
Every single church or person who claims I am the only one particular, I am and none beside me, are identifying themselves with this Satanic spirit of very first-man Adam.
So when they say, we are the only correct ones, they are proving themselves to be of the Satan spirit. Lifting themselves up above God and his Holy Ghost filled people.
Now, I have heard that the WT society will not permit their members to access any material additional back than 1930, because they created so several adjustments from the ERRORS they had produced up to then, starting sometimes in the 1800s.
If this be accurate that they had to Modify their doctrine, then it proves they were Wrong.
So according to your scripture it proves they are false.
No accurate prophet has to ever adjust what they stated, for God does not make blunders.
Edit: I wish to ask them and you a query. perhaps will put this on as a question later. not tonight:
They claim the 144,000 (must not be written this way not a number but I am tired)…is from the JW org. proper? They had been JW when on earth? or were they ever on earth?
When did they reside? If they are JW, then how is it that the word says they are all from the 12 tribes of Israel? Are these ‘Israelites’ JW? And all virgins? never married? Do they/you, have these answers?
How is it they claim these were JW, when Scripture says they are all Israelites?
What do you think? Answer below!

Question by LostSoul: She got into a PA school, I didn’t. With making use of my sources and expertise, I helped her alot with application?
We each applied to PA schools with the application service. It was her 1st time to apply and it was my 3rd time to apply. To become a great candidate for interview.. I told her to pass a CPR class and get a card.. take medical terminology… general chemistry I and II… I let her borrow my chemistry book, old exams and notes that she utilised for classes which she got an A (and I had a B)….
I let her to take more than my hospital volunteer position even though i was on vacation and she continued to volunteer when i came back..
On her own , behind my back, she known as her close friends like how they do when they applied for pharmacy schools and med schools,, and what interview concerns they were asked,,, and she had an individual to proofread her papers for application (she asked me if my brother-in-law – he’s a doc – if he could proofread hers when he does to mine, i told her no ) ,
but I regret to say that I did not get accepted to PA school..but she did and .. she did not invite me during the final minute of her going away party.. I did not go following all.. since I didn’t make it to school..
so she left for that school..
I had alot of sources to prepare for applying.. she was there by my side all the time .. we hung out together and all. and now .. she doens’t speak to me any longer. we did not have a fight or anything. we just disappear on every single other.
Did I make a mistake by helping her alot?
I stopped talking to her when she took a peek on my email and found “PA job possibilities” she asked to open it… I was curious also.. so I opened it.. She pulled out her paper and pen, and stated “You don’t mind if I copy that e mail address down do you? ” This was when she just got accepted in to the school and I didn’t. I felt like a loser in front of her..
Please suggest. Thanks.

Question by Cam5X5: Really should I get a education or go straight into getting a entrepreneur?
I have the dollars, support and abilities to be a hopefully successful entrepreneur…
Nonetheless my question is, ought to I have a education in case it doesn’t go properly? In case I need to have to go appear for another job?
I mean how does one put “entrepreneur” on a resumes for jobs if it does not go properly…. you cannot…
unless you ran a effective organization with all the legal forms and sold it.
Or must I just dive straight into becoming a entrepreneur, threat what small I have.
I’m young… I can still recover right after becoming unsuccessful?
Answer by marquise
do what you assume is greatest for you.
Like me for example, i’m going to take Theatre in college.
I know i truly can’t get that considerably jobs with that.
but i do not care, its my passion, i’m young.
so if acting does not work out, i can go back to school for one thing else.

Question by gisela_fille: what’s ir ur opinion about corporate Social responsibility integrating social aspect into the business” thx b4
Answer by ziema26
I believe it is excellent that corporations are producing social responsibility an integral portion of their agendas. Corporations play such a large role in our communities by offering jobs, it’s only natural that they extend that role to other areas in the community. For example, if you have a business that wants to guarantee the pool of quality job applicants, that business might invest in the neighborhood school method by offering scholarships. Or if a organization knows it has the resources and wants to get some positive publicity, it could contribute to environmental protection measures. In essence, whatever the organization does for its community will come back to them in the form of greater employees and much more buyers. In the end, each the community and the firm win.
