Dr Janice Crouse, Senior Fellow and Director of the Beverly LaHaye Institute, says there is an increase in the number of young, professing Evangelicals who are also adopting the belief system of Wicca. This is a problem not just in liberal, mainline churches, but in Southern Baptist congregations as well. She shares some of the core Wiccan beliefs that parents, youth pastors and theologically sound Christian young people need to be alert to if they hope to counter this trend.
