Covid-sceptic preacher claims demons told him names of witches in congregation

A controversial American preacher has said demons told him the names of witches in his congregation at a recent sermon.

Reverend Greg Locke, from Tennessee, began telling his flock of worshippers that demons had been in touch with him and revealed a group of "full-blown, spell-casting" witches.

Speaking to his worship team at Global Vision Bible Church, Locke alleged that witches had been sent to infiltrate the congregation at the Nashville-based church where Locke is pastor.

He said: "We got first and last names of six witches that are in our church. And you know what's strange, three of you are in this room right now."

Locke alleges he got the names from a demon he had cast out of a woman who had recently attended the Global Vision church.

The preacher is known for his sensationalist sermons about COVID-19 scepticism and politics, and Locke went on to describe the exorcism and demon encounter who accused some of his churchgoers of being witches.

Locke warned the alleged witches, two of which he says were in his wife's bible study, to not make a move during his sermon that saw him recite the New Testament story of Jesus casting a demon out of a man and into a herd of pigs.

Reciting the Greek word for witchcraft or sorcery in his sermon, Locke said: "You so much as cough wrong and I'll expose in front of everybody under this tent, you stinking spell-casting pharmakeia devil worshipping mongrel. You were sent to destroy this church."

In an email to Religion News Service, Locke said his words had been taken out of context and: "WE WILL NOT TOLERATE THAT!!"

Recent sermons from Locke were used to attack LGBTQ people, accuse Democratic politicians of child abuse, spread claims about election fraud, denounce vaccines and claim the coronavirus pandemic was a hoax.

Locke had also recently held a book burning of the Harry Potter novels and other "satanic works".
