Did the Charmed Ones/Charmed Sisters not believe in God?

I love that show, but recently I am conflicted about wicca and paganism. Being a huge fan, I recently ordered an exact replica of the book of shadows (from the show) just for a sovenier. I am a Christian and I guess that my question is….. did I totally do the wrong thing by getting the book?

Spoiler I’m re-watching this now in 2018 because I’ve never seen all the episodes and am only on season one but there’s evidence in this season even that some or all believe in “God”. Season 1 episode 18 Pheobe tells Prue “You know, if you’re ever gonna lose a guy, it might as well be to the big guy”, they’re in a church even and she’s likely referencing “God” with “the big guy”. In some sense at least Pheobe believes in “God”. Not to mention the episode about Friday the 13th where Piper is looking at necklaces that which many… Read more »

Books of Shadows are real. And there are Christian Witches I know one. I am Wiccan myself and anyone who believes witches are evil all I have to say to you is WAAAOW! There is nothing wrong with being a Witch as long and your not using your abilities for harming others as the Wiccan Rede says “An Ye Harm None Do As Ye Will” And plus the book you got IS a replica I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT IT IS EMPOWERED TO DO ANY WORKS!!!! As for the Charmed ones, yes I BELIEVE they ma have been A little mix… Read more »

I think we have to look at the book and the show differently. There are so many things that the show changed and changed and changed from the book. In the show, the girls were religious, but after they found they were witches, they didn’t go to church. The show didn’t really get much into the Wicca aspects after they forced Constance out as head writer.

Hun, its a TV show. Who cares what religion it represented? As a Christian you can still look at non-Christians and their stuff. You won’t burst into flames, I promise. Charmed threw the term “Wicca” around very randomly. They never portrayed the Charmed Ones as even slightly Wiccan. In fact, the only Wiccan thing about them to my knowledge is that they have a book they call a “Book of Shadows.” That’s a Wiccan term. But that name is where the similarity ends. Nothing they do or believe bears any resemblance to Wicca. At least one of the sisters regularly… Read more »

NO WAY as a Pagan or Christian we all belive in the creator of this earth so there is nothing wrong with having the book I am sure most of us have a bible in our houses I do

… Charmed and Wicca have absolutely NO similarities. The “Charmed” ones are a bunch of airheads who inspire impressionable little girls to make us real Wiccans look bad.

Do what you want- your own opinion is much more important to you than that of the writers of a book of mythology.

There are no “charmed ones” in Wicca. That show has nothing to do with Wicca. Wicca is a religion.

i don’t think you did the wrong thing it is just a book from a show and it’s not like you worship it or nothing and i think they did believe in God even though it wasn’t talked about in the show their mom and grandmother wasn’t just sitting around in the air and plus they also addressed hell as you could see so i think the did believe in God.
but i think only the creator know the real answer

Charmed has about as much to do with the practice of Wicca as the Tooth Fairy does with the practice of dentistry. In other words, pretty much nothing.

You didn’t do anything “wrong” by getting the book, at least in my opinion — it’s a piece of puffery based on a popular entertainment — but if you’re looking to learn about Wicca, boy, did you pick the wrong horse. You’d find much better book suggestions here, if you’re so inclined:

(And reading about something doesn’t mean converting to it; it just means that you’re learning, and learning is a good thing.)

If the writers say they do.

That is a fictional show and a fictional book of shadows. It has virtually nothing to do with Wicca or Paganism. The spells are not real spells…they are just silly rhymes.

It is a show and as long as you can separate the show from reality then having a book is not going to change you…it’s like a souviner.

They believed in a twisted form of Wicca.

And stop it, its just a book from a tv show.

The bible tells us not to participate in witchcraft and those that practice it…it is not of God and He calls it sin.

A fictional magic book from a show about three fictional witches (or whatever they call themselves). Doesn’t sound too heretic to me, though I’m not a Christian.

Omg!! The book disagrees with a certain aspect of your religion! Look out!

Please for the love of your God enjoy art without the whole guilt trip crap.
