Catchy beats, wild camera angles, and hipsters talking about Tarot cards, crystals, and astrology. Just your average day on TikTok’s #witchtok. The hashtag has more than twenty-seven billion views. If you were to scroll through TikTok for a few hours, you’d maybe start to believe that witchcraft is cool. Witchcraft is alive and well, even among Christians. There are astrology apps where you can access your charts online for free — you no longer need to call the Psychic Friends Network. There are dating apps that check to see if your stars align with potential mates. You can even download personalized Spotify playlists based on your astrological sign. So, it’s not that far-fetched that you can find out how to be a witch on TikTok, the most popular social media app among pre-teens and teens. Christians need to know how to respond well to those involved in sorcery because it’s a growing trend that is infiltrating the church. 

This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author  Lindsey Medenwaldt about the new witchtok trend, how Christians need to respond to it, and about her Effective Evangelism article, “Witchtok — Sorcery at Your Fingertips” in the forthcoming 45:2-3 (Fall 2022) edition of the Christian Research Journal.
