Can you be a God fearing Christian and still learn and practice Wicca?

Im a very devote Christian, but at the same time Im curious about energy, and doing things to turn my life into what I want it to be. Can I still be Christian and learn and maybe at some point practice Wicca? Would I be defying my God?

  1. You already know the answer to this.
    Though it may be an interesting study, there are other things God would like for you to do with your time. It no longer is about turning our life into what we want it to be, but turning it into whatever He would have us to be. We serve a living and awesome God who already knows what is best for us. Do we really know more than He does concerning our needs? Depending on ourselves leads to all sorts of problems in our lives. Be still and know… God is in control.
    Ultimately Wicca leads to the worship of nature… or in other words… honoring the creation more than the Creator.
    Edit for MSB: Short sighted? Perhaps even narrow-minded? You are entitled to your opinion. It seems I have hit a nerve. The Christo Wicca tradition may seem to be the right individual path to some people, but that does not make it right. There are absolutes that have already been stated in the Word. As it says in Proverbs 14:12 “There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.”

  2. I’m not sure you understand what Wicca is.
    Wicca is, in itself, a religion.
    Being a Wiccan and a Christian at the same time would be like being a Jew and a Hindu at the same time… it kinda conflicts.
    Perhaps you mean Witchcraft? You don’t have to be a Wiccan to practice Witchcraft. There are Christian Witches.
    Some Christians do think this is impossible and blasphemous and that it would be a ticket to hell…. others don’t think there is anything wrong with it. Really you have to determine your own stance on it.
    One thing you need to know about Witchcraft– it doesn’t turn your life around for you.
    It is not instant gratification. It doesn’t hand your desires to you on a platter by the reciting of rhyme. That’s just fiction.
    Real Witchcraft works as a boost… it helps you in achieving your goals, but it doesn’t do it for you. You still have to do a lot of the work yourself, and you don’t actually need to practice Witchcraft to achieve your goals.
    EDIT FOR CLARIFICATION: Wiccans don’t “worship the creation”… we revere and respect the creation, we revel in it, but it is the Creator of it that we recognize and worship and honor.
    Saying Wiccans worship the creation because we attune with nature is like saying Christians are really worshipping the wood the cross is made out of and the paper the Bible was printed on. That’s pretty silly. Don’t be so short sighted.

  3. “Wicca” is demonic. How can you want to be involved in demonic things?
    Jesus is God, and Jesus loves you so very much! 😀 The truth about Jesus is that the only way to be saved and to get into heaven and avoid being sent to eternal hell, is by believing in faith alone that Jesus, who is God, died on the cross for our sins as FULL PAYMENT for all our sins, and then Jesus rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Believe in Jesus alone for salvation, and you will be in heaven, no matter what! Salvation is a FREE GIFT that happens in a split second when you believe in Jesus alone to save you! It is impossible to lose or “leave” salvation (John 6:39-40, John 10:28, 1 John 5:13).

  4. Deu 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

  5. You can practice as you see fit, that’s between you and God and no one else’s business.
    You can direct energy and turn your life in what ever way you like without Wicca, though.
    You can practice Magic as a Christian. Try books like “Magickal Power of the Saints.”
    Spells can work for anyone. Magic is a system, not a religion. It’s also not good or bad. It’s how you choose to use it.
    I know magic works because I’ve been doing it for years. Wicca is just one of many faiths that embrace Magic. But Wiccans and Witches aren’t
    the only ones who use magic.
    You can be both a Wiccan and a witch, these two words are not the same. None of these words has anything to do with devil worship.
    One of the biggest sore points among Wiccans is the improper usage of the terms “Wiccan” and “Witch”. Too many people use the terms interchangeably,
    presuming that they both mean the same thing. They do not.

    Wiccan
    Wicca is just one of many faiths that embrace Magic. Wicca is a religion, and someone who follows that religion is called a Wiccan. Sometimes it
    can be difficult to accurately define Wicca, and not all Wiccans will define themselves the same way. Observing the 8 Wiccan Sabbats, honoring the
    Gods and/or Goddesses, creating sacred space for rituals, to name a few. Many traditional Wiccans also feel that belonging to a coven is also a
    requirement and that those who practice their religion as a solitary, should not refer to themselves as Wiccan. Personally, I’m still not sure on
    that point. Typical Wiccans also practice magick, and therefore are also witches. You cannot be a “natural Wiccan” any more than you could be a
    “natural Christian”.
    Witch
    The practice of witchcraft is not associated with any religion, therefore you can be a witch and yet also be a member of any number of
    religions (or none). Using the natural energies within yourself, along with the energies of herbs, stones or other elements to make changes
    around you is considered witchcraft. Though the skills and gifts that are part of witchcraft can be inherited from parents or grandparents,
    you aren’t automatically a witch just because your grandmother may have been one. The use of magick takes practice, experience and learning.
    On a side note, a male witch is called a witch, not a warlock.
    Pagan
    While I’m explaining terminology, I thought I would throw in “Pagan” as well. Paganism refers to a variety of non-Christian/Jewish/ Islamic
    religions that are usually polytheistic and are often nature-based. Wicca is only one Pagan religion, but there are others such as Santeria,
    Asatru, or Shamanism. Many people do not necessarily identify with a specific religion, and just use the broad term “Pagan” to define their
    spiritual path. Pagan religions are distinct and separate from each other, and it should not be assumed that they are just different names for
    the same faith.
