Because most religious people dont even understand their own faith. Hardly surprising when it is full of lies and contradictions…
I want to point out that not all witches are Wiccan, though all Wiccans are witches, and it’s likely that your friend from Colombia practices Santeria or Condomble, maybe Vodoun, rather than Wicca. Wicca is a pagan religion that has nothing to do with the above practices, which are native Carribean and West African religions syncretized with Catholicism. Wicca is a Western pagan religion that is entirely separate from Christianity.
Absolutely. Though I fear Wicca will be heavily Christianized in the next decade or so. It’s important to keep Traditional Wicca traditional.
I’m a Wiccan and I happen to agree with you. Even as a pagan I ca see the craft is not consistent with your god’s teachings. Wicca (or any type of paganism) isn’t consistent with the Abrahamic faiths.
interesting you have a Wiccan herewho see your side one hundred per cent. Chtistian Wicca is very dismaying to all parties. Pick a team, folks.
yes you can be a Christian Witch, I am one. I believe that there is one higher deity but whether it is a male or female is ridiculous God has no gender, So when i worship the feminine aspect or Goddess aspect I am still worshiping the same as I would if I would the Male aspect or God. They are one in the same. The bible’s original text was written in a male dominant language and if they truly had a word for a genderless God they would have used it. So I like to make my prayers special by lighting candles and burning specific incense these things make me feel that my prayers might be answered faster or more accurately. If you can’t understand this you need to do some research about the original deity’s. The oldest religion ever uncovered worshiped a female aspect deity. Women feel a stronger connection with a Goddess because it gives you a sense of female power.
a Christian witch flies around on a cross, instead of a broom. she also makes the sign of the cross after each spell.
because both are wrong ways of life is you read the bible it tells you there the first comandment believe in only 1 god do not make images of him ( catholics and christians pray to 2 even 3 gods and images of them are all over churches)
It does seem to be an oxymoron similar to Christians that eat pork or are gay. Well, a woman teacher that’s christian is an oxymoron since the bible forbids that too.
But, Jesus used magic, so he was also a Witch, although I prefer the term sorcerer.
“what union can light have with darkness”
This practicing with is not operating under the influence of Christ.
God Condemns witchcraft, ans sorcery and astrology.
we have free will to do this, but God cares for the state of our soul
These are demonic practices that. I would compleatly destroy any material on witchcraft, have nothing to do with it, its spiritual cancer friend.
Don listen to hypocrites like you mentioned.
Thanks for the question
The bible specifically mentioned the abstinence from any form of spiritism. The two cannot co-exist. Aperson who engages in such and claims to be a christian, what is the standard of his/her belief? Acts 16:16-18; Galatians 5:19-21; Revelation21:8 and 22:15; Deuteronomy 18:10-12; Jeremiah 10:2; Isaiah 8:19,20… and the list just goes on and on, where the bible shuns such practices. If a person accepts the bible as God’s word, such one should be ready to abide by its laws and principles.
I can’t see how you could realistically expect to simultaneously practice both Catholicism and Wicca, since they are two completely different religions, and I’m pretty sure there’s going to be facets that contradict each other.
The only thing I can think of is that she was from a Catholic background, and later embraced Wicca.
Alternatively, maybe she was just talking out of an orifice at the other end from her face. Just because someone’s talking about something on the radio doesn’t necessarily mean they know anything…
Christianity and Wicca are two different beliefs. Catholics do have many rituals and pagaen rites in their belief so I can understand why this woman is confused. True Christians know that God said to beware of those who practice magic and spells. It’s not Godly.
They cannot co-exist. Christians are forbidden to use magic, which utilises interactions with demons. The Holy Spirit gives us more power than magic ever could. The difference is that using Holy Spirit gifts we act under the authority of God. Magic involves the illusion of control of spiritual entities in order to impose your will on a person or situation.
Christian Witch is an oxymoron. Witchcraft is condemned in The Bible. It is demonically inspired, and Christians must not be involved with it !
Hello Andie! Fancy meeting you here!
To answer your question, perhaps it’s because in America the churches aren’t allowed to disallow anyone, even witches, from being members, because they might get sued for discrimination?
Hon, I’m Catholic, but I was once Wiccan. It’s a way to have your cake and eat it too. Christian witches normally start off life in a Christian family. They are raised that way and they, at some point, decide to become Wicca. Their hearts aren’t into it and they can’t really change their thinking from Chrisitan to Wiccan without feeling guilty for betraying their birth religion so a Christian witch is the compramise.
Basically, a Christian witch believe in God, but aslo a Goddess and does spells (or what ever). I’ll be honest, I think it’s silly. You can’t serve two masters and they are really just confused as to what they really want to follow. I think they are really Wiccans who don’t want to feel the guilt of being Wiccan.
I know of one Christian witch on this site. She’s a nice person with a lot of good answers. I didn’t look to see if she answered you, but I hope she does. I think she’s a wonderful person, despite the fact I don’t agree with her religion. She would be the one to give you the best answer.
MY cousin married (or is “bonded) with one. She is a Catholic and practices Wicca(otherwise known as being a witch) Wicca is also a paggan religion like catholicism. Many in Haiti(and many south american countries) practice catholicism and voodoo. Its mainly because the africans brought voodoo with them but thier slave owners forced them to worhsip thier catholic god. My cousins wife is from Columbia, she goes to church for show then practices wicca whenever. She knows very little of God. However at her “bonding” service to my cousin they were there on behalf of “guya” and some other god.
You are either Christian or Wiccan. It is impossible to be both because the tenets are in opposition of each other. Anyone who says they are both is deceiving themselves and anyone else they talk to about it.
Perhaps this lady was raised as a catholic and tehn started practising witchcraft as she got older. I’ve studied the craft for a few years now and although we have a deep respect for everybodies own beliefs I have never known anyone claim to be ‘A Catholic Witch’! (that’s actually kinda funny) The belief systems are completely different…There are so many but a prime example: In Catholisism there are many rules, (some pretty strict rules at that), in Witchcraft there is only one which is ‘An it harm none do as ye will’ (basically as long as you do not inflict harm on anybody you are free to do what you want.) Quite a big difference don’t you think 🙂
People can claim to be anything they want, but that does not make it so.
However It is not possible to be a Christian and a witch at the same time, because to be a Christian yo must be like Christ, and to be a witch is against His word. Jesus cannot go His own word.
