  • I personally believe that the Bible is very clear that witchcraft is a no no.

    No offence to anyone who disagrees.

  • Here, this comes from that first site I gave you...

    Christian: To me, being a Christian means believing in the following things:

    * One God in three persons: Father, son and Holy Spirit.
    * Jesus Christ as my personal Savior.
    * Salvation by Grace and Faith in Christ.
    * A personal relationship with God.
    * The bible as an inspired source for spiritual wisdom.

    One of the most important things to me about my Christian faith is that
    Christianity is NOT about "bible interpretation" it's not about "doctrines"
    and theological mud slinging. It's not about being perfect or judging other
    people. It is about a person and a relationship. It's about God loving
    the world so much that he became a man and sacrificed himself to show that
    love.

  • Witch: To me, being a witch means the following things:

    * Having a connection to nature.
    * Respecting all life and taking care of the earth and helping people.
    * Someone who has an intensely personal relationship with the divine, however
    he/she sees him/her.
    * Someone who believes in and uses ritual and magick to bring about needed
    change.

    In the end analysis...the only "problem" is with the concept of "magick" It
    seems that the bible strictly prohibits any magickal practice whatsoever. But
    if one looks closely with an open mind one will see that that isn't the case.

    **Again, these are NOT my words...

  • I don;t see why not, no one has the right to tell you what you can or can't belive or do. If thats what you choose then go for it. I read lots of books on Witchcraft and think it is very interesting, people think that when they hear the word Witchcraft the it is always bad, well I don't think so, if you read check it out it is very interesting. I own several books on the topic.

  • Yes, there are Christian witches out there. Magick and prayer are very similar, and really, the ritual of Witchcraft is not much different than that found in say, a Catholic or Lutheran church. They are both meant to bring about the same thing. The only difference is that Pagan or Wiccan magick speaks to different deities where Christian magick relies on God. There is nothing wrong, IMO, with using the energy of the earth (both of which are God's creations) and the power of your own mind (again, God's creation) to bring about positive change in the name of God. Isn't that what prayer is?

  • Interesting site Sabrina. I never thought of it that way. I am curious how witchcraft is defined in the bible or biblical times.
    Thanks OP. Interesting question.
