Pastor Greg Locke Threatens to Expose 'Witches' in His Church in Viral Video

A clip of controversial pastor Greg Locke threatening to expose members of his church for being "witches" has gone viral.

In the near two-minute video, edited from his February 13 sermon, Locke tells the crowd he has the name of six, and that three are in the audience watching him.

Locke mentions "witches" multiple times in the sermon at his Global Vision Bible Church event.

The clip was posted on Twitter by Hemant Mehta, the "Friendly Atheist" blogger and former Jeopardy! champion, where it has since been viewed more than 450,000 times.

"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 said.

"You better look in my eyeballs, we're not afraid of you stinking witch, you devil worshipping Satanist witch.

"We cast you out. In the name of Jesus Christ. We break your spells, we break your curse. We got your first name, we got your last name. We even got an address for one of you," Locke adds.

Locke, who is known for pushing falsehoods about COVID-19 and telling his supporters not to get vaccinated, also told the crowd that "some of you have been sick because you befriended" one of the witches.

"You got a choice," Locke adds later in the sermon. "You can leave with your spells all by yourself, or I'll show up next Sunday with a stage full of brooms and I'll give you one and I'll fly your tail up out of this place in the name of Jesus, but we ain't playing your spell casting, witch crafting sage burning games."

The remarks came after Locke led a book burning ceremony in Tennessee, where copies of the Twilight and Harry Potter series were set alight for being "witchcraft."

"Bring all your Harry Potter stuff. Laugh all you will haters. I don't care. It's witchcraft 100 percent," Lock posted on Facebook ahead of the book burning event in the Nashville suburb of Mount Juliet.

"All your Twilight books and movies. That mess is full of spells, demonism, shape-shifting and occultism. Bring tarot cards, Ouija boards, healing crystals, idol statues, spell books and everything else tied to the occult. It's got to go.

"If you think we're crazy, then scroll on. We're exposing the Kingdom of Darkness for what it is. It's time for people to be delivered."

In the past, Locke has also spouted rhetoric similar to that expressed by followers of the radical QAnon conspiracy movement, including calling President Joe Biden a "sex trafficking, demon-possessed mongrel."

Global Vision Bible Church has been contacted for comment.
