Yahoo answers has always been a great source of fun for me… and this as another perfect example. One nice lady had a simple question: “Can you be a Christian and a witch?”
to which I replied:
*sigh* before you are ripped a new one by other ‘Christians’. (I’m sorry Too late.. =( )Yes you can be both Christan, and Wiccan. In reality Christians and Wiccans worship the same way. The people just use different terms for it. Spell casting = Praying. The God and the Goddess are different halves of one being which is ‘God’ they have a Bible.. Wiccans have a book of shadows. Its all SS/DD (that’s Same S%!T, Different Day)and hell yes, Christians worship other ‘figures’ besides God. Jesus and Mary are one. Look at all the saints.. etc. but man I wish people would get over there ‘My God can beat up your God mentality’
When I started to reply I was like 4th in line.. that post was placed like 20th.
and I thought I was good to go… How wrong I was..
I received a private Email from a person saying:
“Christians do things other than God, Jesus is God, aka the trinity, Mary is never worshiped, she is just the virgin who gave birth to god, praying isn’t a spell, because its only “talking” to God, trying to receive answers THROUGH HIS miracles not ours. I don’t want this to sound offensive, I was just stating the facts, next time DO SOME ACTUAL research, because you were incorrect.
To which I replied:
No Jesus is NOT God. Jesus is the SON of God. There’s a difference. Some sects do ask Mary for favors.. This is worship. Praying is spell casting . Just under a different name.. Do you not request God to perform some action in your name? That’s a Spell. Did you know that Christmas was a pagan holiday? and Originally had NOTHING do to with the birth of Jesus? Sounds like you are a stout christian. And I give you a thumbs up for having a believe. But I suggest that YOU do some research outside your specific Sect and try to see the light in those ideas and thoughts also.
Figuring I would get a reply I just sit back and wait. SURE enough:
I have. And technically Jesus is God in a matter of speaking, it takes too much to explain and I’m sure you don’t care about my opinion. Another, my mom is a religious scholar and minister, I have every book on every religion and I sat down, and read and read and read, and Christianity is the only thing that made sense to me. Here’s a website about the trinity God being the same as Jesus http://johnmyers.com/bible23.html please visit.
So now I have my reply:
As a matter of speaking.. isn’t that all we are arguing about in the first place? It’s all a matter of
THOUGHTS and THEROYS, nothing more. As for your opinion, of course I care. That’s how
people grow and learn. You ask questions. You try to understand where another person
is coming from. You walk a mile in their shoes. in the end will I change my mind? perhaps.
perhaps not. Depends on what rings true to me.
However, it’s hard to debate theory with someone when they start off with an obvious lie. There’s no way this side (or that side) of hell that you have read “every book on every religion” and then argue that praying isn’t spell casting. If you had you would also know how many Christan holidays are based on pagan rituals. You would understand that Wicca has been around A LOT longer then Christianity has. You would see the blood and death of Christianity because of fear, greed, and being holier then thou. To me, it sounds like you’ve done too much reading and not enough thinking. The answers you seek are inside you, not in a book.
You state that Christianity is the only thing that makes sense to you. That’s where we differ.
to me Christianity makes no sense because of all the hypocritical things that have happened
over the course of the religion coming into power over the people. How many millions have
died by the hand of God only because he/she was mad over something? How many cultures have have whipped off the face of the earth in ‘Gods’ name? How many millions have been killed by humans in the name of God.. Yet.. the 10 commandments. The HIGHEST ranking law in Christian Dogma stats quite clearly.. ‘Thou shalt not Kill’ Where does it say “but it’s OK in my name?”
There’s a group of Christians in my State that are picking and protesting at military personal funerals. protesting at the place of rest for the men and woman that have given there lives
for our country.. and they are protesting because they ‘somehow’ think that God is killing
them off because America is lenient towards homosexuals? Where’s the logic in that?!
and WHERE in the bible does it say anything about homosexual’s being ‘evil’? as a matter of fact there’s quite a few stories in the bible about same sex relationships and sex. (Noah is one)
and above all else, where as most Christians don’t go door to door saying ‘Believe this or God will smite you’, there’s a nice large band of them that like to push there believes on anyone that doesn’t believe the same way they do. Again, so my thoughts and ideas don’t matter because they go against what you believe?
I did go to the website, and must ask a major question here. If God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are one in the same.. then you must say that man killed God, now how is that possible? Also didn’t Jesus preach time and time again “do not worship me, worship my Father?” and didn’t Moses speak with God more then once.. Why didn’t God just take a human form? wouldn’t that have been easier?
and if you REALLY want to push the whole ‘3 aspects’ of God, then aren’t you agreeing with me about the God and Goddess being different aspects of one God?
YOU replied to the woman that asked the original Question:
“Okay, Wicca is not evil witchcraft, they practice pratical spells I guess you would say they aren’t evil, but to me, because I am a christian witchcraft period is evil.Here is a specific verse:”There shall not be found among you anyone who make his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead for all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord.” (Deuteronomy 18:10) “
Huh? Wicca is not evil, but because you are Christan Wicca is evil? Only because you are Christan? So, what you are saying is.. you’re HEART (one aspect of God) is saying that
Wicca is fine. no problems. Yet your Mind (another Aspect of God) is saying that it’s evil.
but.. your mind GOT those ideas from another MAN. Not God. So how can you be so sure that Wicca is evil? OOOHHH yeah.. you’ve got a verse to back it up.
OK, that verse is saying a couple of things here. Do you even believe that ‘Spells’ are real?
well I guess they where because it’s in the BIBLE!! right there.. blank and white. Deuteronomy 18:10 tells you that if you are caught practicing it.. then you are an abomination to the lord.. so that proves then that A) Spell craft is real. If it wasn’t real.. then why the rule? and B) JESUS CHRIST IS AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD.
*SHOCK* How can I say that? Who raised people from the dead? Who transmuted water into wine? WHO knew the outcome of a number of events before they happened? WHO talked to spirits? WHO rose from the dead?!
and since you believe that Jesus was God.. then God is an Abomination onto himself, and above all else a hypocrite.
and you say “Christianity is the only thing that made sense to me”?
