What is Red Magic?

Yes, there is. Red magic is described by the late exorcist of Rome, Gabriele Amorth, as a type of sorcery that “regards the sphere of sexuality and influences the sentiments” in his book, An Exorcist Explains the Demonic. For this reason, it’s often referred to as “sex magic” and is used to inspire passion in a love interest.

Red Magic is also referred to as Hoodoo, a derivative of Voodoo, which was carried to the United States by West Africans during the slave trade. It is a blend of spiritual practices indigenous to the people of the Congo and other African tribes.

The practice gradually began to incorporate Christian thought such as a belief in God and His Providence but seeing Him more as the archetypal hoodoo doctor. Some practitioners believe God created the world via six days of hoodoo magic spells and often portray Biblical characters as hoodoo doctors. The Bible is used more as a source of spells and is considered to be a protective talisman.

Red magic is practiced much like other versions with potions concocted from herbs, minerals, and parts of animals’ bodies, but especially semen, menstrual blood, saliva and urine. Spirits of the dead are often called upon along with recitation of psalms from the Bible.

This explanation should be enough to convince you that red magic is just as evil as it’s white and black counterparts. They all rely on wizards, warlocks, shamans, and witchdoctors who in turn rely upon powers that are not sourced in God.

As Father Amorth explains: “All turn to the same preternatural entity, the wizard, who, in all these cases, resorts to the power of Satan in order to obtain the invoked result. Therefore, there is no difference among them, ‘black,’ ‘white,’ or ‘red’.”

All are sourced in evil, and all are to be strictly avoided.
