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.
