  • ANd yet again, this question also glosses over the very real differences in beliefs. When people say that someone is taking hte bible "out of context" they don't just mean that they're looking at a verse out of context of the rest of the words - but that they're taking the verses out of context of the Christian faith and belief. I can take a ritual, action or words spoken by anyone and place my own meaning/context on them and then claim they're Christian if I wanted. In fact some Christians in the middle ages did that with traditions like the evergreen and holly. And yet if one did away with the evergreen/holly traditions there would still be Christmas - there would still be the belief in Jesus Christ as the Messiah. Outward symbols and signs change and evolve with cultures. Neopagans even adapt Christian traditions to their beliefs.

  • Since Im not satifying, why dont you CLEAR IT UP anon.

    There is nothing wrong with differences. And if you had a clue, you'd overstand that I am asking about differences b/c it is a DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE. If you cant handle the question, then dont answer...well, you dont anyway. Have a good day.

  • once again... the difference is the spiritual realm that is tapped into... one is the heavenly realm where God reigns and the other is the demonic realm where satan has his hosts
    Remember I said where there is a counterfeit there is a real. What the pagans did was counterfeit for they did not worship God the maker of Heaven and Earth but God's people had the real deal... they tapped into the Heavenly realm.

  • "CLEAR IT UP anon" - OK, I'll clear it up. The difference is that Christians believe in a personal God - a Supreme Being that is more than just an energy or a force but that is all-knowing, all-loving, eternal and everlasting - the Creator of All Things. They believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God which provides insight into God's interaction with us here on earth. To ignore that understanding is to take the bible "out of context". And claim that it's the same as "magick" is being dishonest in what Christians believe and what those who practice magick believe. One definition of magick is "the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with the will". Magick is about the practitioner doing their will - the Bible and Christianity is more about humans trying to do God's will.
