  • Read over it when I was younger.
    Have it beat over my head weekly(if not more often) by people on this site.

    Could care less anymore what a book belonging to another religion says. The bible is a nice work and has some nice things in it that most, if not all, other religions follow(like being kind and serving others) but it isnt a part of my spirituality. It holds nothing over my head nor heart nor soul.

    If it does yours...good for you, have fun with that.

  • Witches aren't Christian!   So why do you care?

  • Why don't you go needle point that verse on a pillow or something and get the hell off here.

  • Yep, I've read that. Not sure what you're point is. Maybe expecting the witches to go "Oh snap! I did not know that! I'd better stop & repent right this second!!!" ? Not sure THAT'S about to happen! lol

    Look, you have to understand that your Bible is nothing more than a novel to most non-Christians. That's not meant to belittle your faith or anything... it's just the same as the fact that witches' spellbooks (sorry ladies, I don't know the "proper term") or my equivalent of a Holy Book (The Tipitaka) mean absolutely nothing to you.

    So, ya see.. reitterating that your Holy Book says this or that about anything is irrelevant to those that don't believe in it.

  • In the original translation of the language used, poisoners are mentioned...NOT witches. Certainly as a witch I am strongly opposed to poisoners!! And the phase "thou shalt not suffer a witch to live" doesn't MEAN kill means don't give her money or let her "make a living." Saul exiled them all (the witches) and then had to leave his kingdom when he wanted to find one to make use of her powers. Who knew? Hypocrisy is an ancient idea, TOO! All hail Harry Potter!! I'm a HP geek too!!!
