Can I be a Christian Witch?

Discussion for and about Christian witches and pagans. How do you merge your two belief systems? Please be kind to Christian witches. I have come to believe that it is a very valid belief system.

Can I be a Christian Witch?

Post by JackFrost102 »

I'm curious about all forms of Witchcraft - however the aspect I have found most interesting is where most other religions can incorporate it. Is Christian Witchcraft possible or is it a contradiction?

Hi Jack. Welcome to EUTM -- mind making an introduction in the Member Profiles & Introduction forum?

I've also moved this particular thread to the Christian Witchcraft subforum. There have been many discussions over the years over whether or not one can simultaneously be a Christian and a witch, to which I'll say:

1. There are many people who do consider themselves Christian witches (as you can see from other threads in this subforum), and historically many Christians have practiced magic. In truth, virtually all religions incorporate magic and ritual, and all cultures have folk beliefs and superstitions -- although they may not resemble the practices that we associate with modern witchcraft and magic today.

2. Some people find that there is a contradiction between Christianity and witchcraft (namely, that the Bible prohibits practicing witchcraft). But of course, there are many contradictions both within the Bible and with how people interpret and live out the teachings of the Bible today. How you address those contradictions is a personal choice. There are some who are perfectly comfortable with those contradictions and are happy to be Christian witches; others cannot reconcile the difference between Christianity and witchcraft and choose a different path instead.

Yes.

You might be interested in the kabbalah. It's basically the mystical philosophy of christianity, which is analogous to the theory of Wiccan and other systems of witchcraft.

Generally...

Pow wow, folk Catholicism, brujeria, and hoodoo are good starters.
I am the Earth, The Sun and the Stars
And I am the also the Moon
I am all animal and birds,
And I am the outcast as well, and the thief
I am the low person of dreadful deeds,
And the great person of excellent deeds
I am Female. I am Male and I am Neuter.

Once introduced to the limitless horizons of Witchcraft it is hard to fathom why one would still want to remain subjugated to any of the Abrahamic ideologies.
Truth and Reality are highly guarded secrets. Nothing is as it appears. "The ONENESS sleeps in the stone, breathes in the plant, dreams in the animal and awakens in man" (Indian proverb)
