How is it possible to be a Christian and a witch?

The Bible says in numerous places that witchcraft is not pleasing to God. How does one who claims the Christian faith reconcile this and try to blend the two?

  • It isn't possible but you do realize posting this you will get a lot of heat.
    The bible is specific about choosing to serve God or not. You do not serve or honor God doing witchcraft.
    Sadly people try to twist scripture to fit their lifestyle of choice. When we are supposed to be walking according to what the word actually says and choosing to walk with Him.

  • I'm not sure.

  • Duet.18:10-12 says " There should not be found in you anyone who imlpoys divination, a practicer of magic or anyone who looks for omens or a sorcerer, or one who binds others with a spell or anyone who consults a spirit medium or a professional foreteller of events or anyone who inquires of the dead. For everybody doing these things is something detestable to Jehovah."
    So no, one cannot be a witch and a Christian. Why would one want to devote time to be a Christian-gain salvation, only to ruin it by practicing withcraft?

  • OK first the bible is against sorcery not with craft, the two are very different.
    Secondly this is a baiting question, but sure I'll bite why not.
    Thirdly, a spell is nothing more than an enhanced prayer of which you pull all of your energy to conduct. You use candles, incense, etc. OOH how scary. If God considers it a crime then way more Christians of all denominations are screwed not just Christo-witch.
    Forth you may want to crawl out of the rock before pointing fingers at some thing you know nothing about.

  • I can say from a Pagan stand point that not many Pagans would dare say who should believe this or that. WE do not tell anyone HOW they should or should not see their path. That is up to the individual and should ALWAYS remain as such. IF the OP has a question about this particular belief then may-hap they should ask an ACTUAL follower of said path. Instead of sending out the Spanish Inquisition.

  • If Christians (that's Christians in general before someone gets their panties in a twist) spent as much time looking in the mirror as they spent judging everyone else the world would be a much more peaceful place.

  • I'm surprised no one has pointed out that all teh passages regarding "witchcraft" were old testament passages and thus are "no longer applicable' much like the laws on wearing blended fabrics or eating shellfish are concerned........

  • Yes Kristi! It is always funny how Torah laws do not apply to Christians, as in you can eat pig and shell fish and you don't have to cover your hair or things like that, but Christians are always using Torah laws against homosexuality and witchcraft. Either it does apply, or it doesn't - not just which ever you like best and leave out the rest.

  • It's not possible. People that claim to be both are either really confused about their identity, or they are just picking and choosing what parts of the Bible they feel "apply to them". Many people fail to realize that becoming Christian is all or nothing. You either believe and follow ALL of the Bible, or none of it.
