Getting On : Faith

A Christian Witch

from porceleindoll - Thursday, October 10, 2002

Is it possible? I don't know, though some people have told me they have friends who are both. This is something I wrote a friend recently about it, collected from a year or so of thinking it over.

In my natural studies I read that the witch hunts of the 1800s were due in large part to the male medicine system trying to wrench control from the female herbalists, and being that they had the greater power in religion and politics, they labelled the woman as witches, giving them (the men) freedom to wipe out a whole group of healers. It is purely stupid superstition, and what I believe the Bible has taught us is that we should shun the modern medications and turn more to nature and its power. Someone told me that Christianity is a very male religion, it is domineering and overpowering, aggressive, whereas witchcraft (as in Wiccan) for instance is a female religion that seeks to live in harmony with nature and others, and respects nature and its power. If I could choose, I would probably opt for wiccan over modern Christianity, just because I agree with more of the basics of it, and the sample I've seen of Christianity greatly discourages me from continuing on with it.

People consider this heresy, but what I have learned is that being Wiccan is not necessarily anti-Christ, but Wiccan means you believe in the power of nature, not that you don't believe in Jesus. Of course I haven't studied it too deeply, but I think that mostly it is Satanists that would be in opposition to God and Christianity. But I don't believe that Wiccans are in opposition to Christianity. I have heard that there are Wiccans who are also practicing Christians. If the only requirement to being a Christian is to accept Jesus as the Son of God and as your Savior, then I don't see how they could conflict.

Anyway, someone, put up a list awhile back when I had this controversy on NDN, that according to the definition of witch in the Bible, that there are 16 or some definitions, and of course the last one is all-inclusive, anyone who isn't Jewish. So, I think the term witch has maybe been overly used or abused by Christians and used by those smarter than the average, the leaders and political people, to put fear into the masses and gain control by labelling the people they want to eliminate as 'witches'.

It's not though something I have thought out, and I don't claim to be a witch, nor am I interested in becoming one, I am just hesitant to shun someone who says they are, based only on that word.

Interesting.  Again, here's another example of where the majority of Christianity is misinformed, or at least what I (& probably all of us) was taught in TF.  We were taught in things such as the 'son of god' and a distinct seperation between the two (Jesus and his father, God).  Satanism, on the other hand (as far as I've learned), does not oppose any belief in 'God' but rather discredits Jesus' divinity.  So this means that sure, he may have lived but he was not the divine son of god ... rather a man, just like any other human being.  In fact, if you go far back enough, both religions have the same roots and share same accounts of history of whatever either believes in.  A lot of Christians seem really threatened by Satanism because they are taught that to discredit Jesus is to discredit God, Jesus is/was God, etc.  I was taught a lot of intolerance for anything even a fraction out of step from the "straight and narrow path" ... more like narrow-minded if you ask me.  Regardless, it's kinda amazing at the amount of ignorance shown by some people simply because they refuse to look up where the opposed is coming from .. they're a lot more alike than some say.  Though if Satanism has anything to do with dancing around and bowing to the "Devil", I have no clue.

I realise that your article is a bit dated by now, but if you would like me to email you some ebooks on witchcraft and related issues, I would be more than happy to. Look for my email under my profile and request them, please.

Well christian depends on the type of christian. If one is an exclusive christian who believes that all those who don't accept christ are going to hell then this ideology is quite opposite to the general consensus of those involved in earth religions such as wicca and other religions based on pagan earth religions.

I'm guessing the above post was from me, but I don't remember posting it. Have you been ever fascinated by Italian Wichcraft? Grimassi the authority on Charles Leland happens to live blocks away from me here in North San Diego, I've met him a couple of times and there are some books I might be able to recommend if you're interested that is. Wicca he argues is old but this tradition digs even older and holds it's basic roots from Italian and Celtic pagan traditions.(reply to this comment

I looked into witchcraft a bit, and read up on it, joined a yahoo discussion group, but decided it wasn't for me because there is a lot of goddess and god worship.

Leaving the Family and departing from the Christian faith I have gone down a path that doesn't want to submit itself to a higher being, or person, but wants to be independent and equal to those around me. And the stuff I was reading seemed to be putting emphasis on worship of 'gods and goddesses'.

I did recently have a short chat with a satanist (ex-member), and satanism is an area I have completely steered clear of and had no interest in whatsoever. But after chatting a bit with him I realised that maybe my perception of satanism is inaccurate and I should study it a bit before making a judgement on it.

See, when it comes down to it, I just don't hold a belief in the supernatural or anything more powerful than what you have within yourself. I enjoy the Harry Potter stuff, Anne Rice, Bartimeus Trilogy (only read book one so far), but it's just a story and I don't truly believe in anything magical. (reply to this comment

I know, I couldn't figure out what category to put this in. And since witchcraft is considered opposite of Christianity, I could only come up with this place.

Interesting post sis, hard to say. There is one thing you are right about though, Christianity is no doubt run by men. Would you like me to send you some books on Wicca for Xmas - they are readily available on this side of the globe. Let me know doll! xoxo(reply to this comment
