Christian Witchcraft...

Is it possible to combine Christianity and Witchcraft? I know someone who claims to be a Christian Witch, I know what my views are on it, just curious to see what others think. If this has posted before, sorry I didn't see it.

  • It's very possible! There are many many ChristoWitches out there. In fact the catholic church used magick and even a number of the popes were magickally inclined. Magick, or Witchcraft is just a manipulation of natural energy. No matter who you believe gives us that energy, be it God or Goddess or Jesus it's still natural and is not outside the realm of Christianity.

  • well according to what God says about witchcraft and giving HIM the glory for [those natural energies] - it DOES matter who/what you believe and that witchcraft and magic is forbidden- no matter how you spell it.

  • Of course there are some Christian Witches. They use angels and some parts of the Bible in their work. To each their own.

  • Christians use magic in church with prayer and incense, healing, how is it any different?

  • Witchcraft is not a belief, it is a practice. So you can be any religion and still practice witchcraft. Anyone who has ever lit a candle and said a prayer for healing technically has done "witchcraft."

  • There is a huge history behind this practice and most of it was during the take over of the Catholic church. You became Catholic or you died. Many religions (even Native American and African religions) survived by melting the two beliefs together. So it is possible and has its own deep history.
